Just taking a break from today’s work duties. Taking a break = blogger mode on, haha!
If you’ve been following my snaps (rainbowholic.me), you would know how I’ve become so (overly) attached to my hobonichi.
I think that this hobonichi activity has become my regular stress-reliever. Everyday, I respond to many emails and messages (mostly to answer clients’ inquiries / to disseminate tasks within my team) and I would easily get overwhelmed by everything happening all at the same time. I’ve realized that allowing myself to have a downtime (and just be myself, doodling my dreams on papers and designing the pages with washi tapes lol) is actually a good creative exercise. : ) You guys should also try it! Add more color to your day ~
It’s amazing how a simple work day like today (and mind you, it was stressful haha) became much more interesting with this simple form of leisure!
I bought some Gudetama stickers / washi tapes when I went to Sanrio Puroland before.. and I’m so happy that I finally get to use these for a personal project! 😀
God of Kawaii Zen lol
Here’s a kawaii dump featuring ChiChi / Little Miss Paintbrush’s artworks and a couple of event announcements!
(As you can tell, I’m a really proud friend of hers, heehee! ^^)

These are our best-selling jackets featuring the hokusai wave.
My cousin Gil has been slaying it for weeks! Wish I could model so naturally, haha!
Photographed by my brother during the sakura peak in one of our favorite places in Saitama.
Justin featured the sukajan / souvenir jackets on his blog together with a photo essay about Edo Tokyo Open Air Museum (thanks Reesey for dragging us with you~!). You should read his write-up here!
For this post, I will be sharing some photos I took during my visit in Asakusa with Justin. Today is also the “Coming of Age Day” in Japan and the streets were filled with pretty Japanese ladies in kawaii furisode + handsome Japanese gentlemen in fine suits! I have always wanted to take photos of these kawaii girls for so many years already and I am so happy that I got to cross that out from my #JapanBucketList today! Been looking forward to this day since last year, hahaha!
Before anything else, my photo first. Hahahaha lololol
Back alleys are the best. The best way to dodge the huge crowd of tourists :))
Coming of Age Day (成人の日 Seijin no Hi) is a Japanese holiday held annually on the second Monday of January. It is held in order to congratulate and encourage all those who have reached the age of majority (20 years old (二十歳 hatachi)) over the past year, and to help them realize that they have become adults. Festivities include coming of age ceremonies (成人式 seijin-shiki) held at local and prefectural offices, as well as after-parties amongst family and friends. (source)
