Hello friends! How are you? :heart: It’s crazy how time flies so much! I cannot believe it’s DECEMBER AGAAAIIIN! : ) :heart:
Even though things have become busier because of our www.kawaii.ph website launch this December 21,
I’m really happy that all our visions and objectives are finally coming true!
Ever since I got chosen by NHK World to become Philippines’ “Kawaii” represent in April 2013, I felt that I had to share and help spread kawaii more in a very hands-on way here in the Philippines. I decided to go back here in Manila last August.. and now, I have two months left before I go back to finish my new set of duties in Japan (which is to create more ties in order to bring Japan’s kawaii-dom closer here in Philippines.. and maybe to SEA / South-east Asia as well, with Stella and influential kawaii people!)! I feel so lucky to have dedicated teammates who really go out of their way for this dream kawaii project despite all the hurdles and negativity from naysayers (sad case of crab mentality crap here in PH). The more they question / dare to spread rumors regarding the team or our passion-filled projects, the more we get pumped up to do more work! Seriously, I think I’ll cry when December 21 finally arrives! : )
A year ago, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do with my life and work. All I knew was I’ve got to TRY everything out and see what would work the best (as suggested by my TokyoFashion.com mentors). So I went out, met people.. and tried out different sorts of things.. and those were all kawaii-related gigs in Tokyo! Not all worked out so well even though I did my best… but I just realized that in every opportunity that I created for myself before (you don’t wait for those to come, you really create those.. hashtag learning haha), it led me another.. and to another, and to another.
Now that I have my plans solidified and laid out (all the way until 2015 guys, lol), I’m nervous yet excited to “execute” them all! Kawaii cafe in the Philippines, JapanLover.me Dream Tweam in Tokyo Design Festa November 2014.. and possibly, a Kawaii Convention in Manila in 2015! How exciting will these be?? I don’t know yet HOW in the world I can do all of these but I’ll just do the best of my best. : )
So much work to do, no time to blog already.. ooops. ~guilty~ :blush:
