Summer Days in Boracay + Hobonichi Diary Updates + Tadaima, Japan!

Hello friends!

Omg, it feels so good to blog again! I think I almost took a month-long hiatus from updating this blog. It really felt weird to not share my thoughts and photos for so long! ;_; My internet connection back in the Philippines was really slow so I thought that I should just enjoy every single day I spent there (instead of getting frustrated over my pocket wifi, lol).

So far, I’ve been really into journaling / updating my hobonichi. I like doing something creative with my hands and taking photos of my output later on. If you also keep a diary with you, my dear friend Abbey is conducting a survey about journaling and we would appreciate it so much if you could answer it during your spare time. ^^

Anyway, here’s the complete Boracay #hobonichi series!

We planned this for almost a year or so. I really saved up and prepared for my entire Philippine trip. I was almost scared that I would exceed my budget but huhu I made it! Maybe I should blog about on how to be a cheapo like me, haha!

But before anything else, here’s a fun video that I edited! Smiles and laughs really made our entire trip! ^^

Thank you to my dear friends ChiChi, Kaye, Francis, Ashley and Justin P. for the UNFORGETTABLE week! Let’s all travel again together in the future!

We flew to Kalibo from Manila via AirAsia. We were 4/5 hours early for our flight and to our surprise, AirAsia offered us an earlier flight schedule! And we got Business Class seats. I still don’t know why we got such an amazing luck that day! :))

Another lucky moment for me and my friends was when we got a free dinner (by the beach + live band omg) from Mamita’s Grill at Station 1. We also got to try Parasailing and the famous Boracay submarine.. courtesy of Diamond Watersports. We could have spent a lot of money for the activities / amazing dinner but everything was arranged by Tita Marlene and Tito James (Justin‘s parents).

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! ^^
