Current Japan Life in Photos + Slowly But Surely 🌱

Hi everybody!

Just sharing some photos taken these past few weeks / days. I’m still recovering from the crazy workload I had during the start of May. It’s great to finally sit down and update my blog and spam you guys with photos, hehe ~

So hard to eat this melon pan from our local bakery! :))

What I feel whenever I go home ~

Messy desk while doing Rainbowholic work.

Back to square one. First day of moving in!

WRAPPLE Workshop Cafe + Travelling Hobonichi 2018 Meet-up ?

Hello everybody!

Yesterday, I attended my first Travelling Hobonichi event hosted by my dear friend, Esther (@esthermolinart)! I met this crazy and super kind bunch of stationery lovin’ people back when Momo (@momolovespaper) invited me to join a stationery meet-up at Tokyu Hands Cafe.

It was my first time at a Wrapple store / branch and I was SO amazed by everything! Imagine a workshop cafe filled with stationery?! There’s a stationery cafe (Bunbougu Cafe) in Tokyo too but I love this space more. It’s accessible too because it’s just next to Tokyu Hands Shibuya. I asked the staff about the shop (couldn’t believe I just discovered it now lol) and she told me it was just pretty new (built 6 months ago).

(this was during my first stationery meet-up with Tokyo folks)

BGM washi tapes just really make you want to travel around the world haha

Hobonichi Techo 2018 Lineup Preview Event at Tobichi ? ?

Hi everyone!

Today, I went to Tobichi for their Hobonichi 2018 Lineup Preview. It wasn’t my first time to attend a preview event by ほぼ日 and you can check out last year’s lineup event report here.

After doing some work errands for Rainbowholic Shop, I went straight to Minami Aoyama from Shinjuku.

To go to Tobichi / Tobichi 2, just take the Tokyo Metro bound for Omotesando and the nearest exit to Tobichi store is A4 exit.

Click here for the access guide.

Took photo of a spread from my Avec.

To those who are wondering, my hobonichi planner right now is the A6 Size (Hobonichi Techo Original) but in avec version. Avec is for people who love overdoing their journals (if there is such thing, haha). It has 2 books / parts (January – June, July – December).
