My Blog is BACK! + Hobonichi Diary Updates + #PrayForKumamoto

Hi all!

After three long days of my blog being inaccessible, it’s finally back! To my friends and readers who messaged me regarding this, I really appreciate your concern and thoughtfulness! Those comments actually inspired me more to blog. 🙂

First of all, I’d like to plug our first event this 2016 at Kawaii Philippines! 🙂 If you’re in Manila this April 30, hope you can visit our mini-bazaar (Kawaii Market 2016). For more info, you may proceed to our official event website at www.market.kawaii.ph! ^^
