Daily Japan Life + Picnic in Shinjuku + Diary Updates + Washi Collection

Hello, good evening from Japan!

I just realized that I haven’t posted anything about my life recently as I’ve been busy with building my youtube channel…. oops! Soooo to make it up, here’s a summary of what has been going on, haha! Of course, a photo spam is the most appropriate way to narrate! : )

Life Updates + Autumn Lookbook Video + #ABCDailyJournal Start! 🌈

Hi everybody!

I just realized that I haven’t blogged that much recently. Blame Scarlet Heart Ryeo & W – Two Worlds, haha! I don’t know if anyone is aware but I’m a certified K-drama marathoner… lolol. I could spend the whole day in bed and in my pajamas watching unrealistic love stories online. Realistic or not, I just really love how Koreans make / produce movies and dramas! Watching Kdramas alone just makes me want to book a trip to Korea! If you have any recommended 2014 – present Korean drama for me, feel free to let me know please. ; ) I love Descendants of The Sun, Iljimae (period kdramas), She Was Pretty, Pinochio, and the like. Arigatou in advance! 😉

Just sharing this unrelated photo because I haven’t had any room selfie in a long time (I think lol).

#Hobonichi With Me Updates + Some Realizations Recently

Hi there!

Been religiously editing videos & it feels so great to just have a creative outlet everyday. My work and my hobbies are actually almost worlds apart … & I am not complaining. I treat JLM Store 10AM-6PM everyday job as a “school” where I can learn hands-on management. At present, I am the one who is in charge of overseeing all the operations (+ heavy marketing work).  I can’t believe that the day wherein we could a hire a part-timer in the office has happened already (and she’s a super genki / cheerful 60 yr. old Japanese lady btw). I consider it as one of my milestones.. considering how small we started before.  I can still remember having some crying spells during / after work because of the pressure (self-pressure, I suppose lol) but hey, I’m still alive and smiling! These days, I am just taking everything slow (slowly but surely) even if I am forced to be fast-paced (how contradicting, haha!). Thanks to Manila team (Chichi and Kaye) for always helping me out & working with me so efficiently and effectively. I really appreciate everyone’s hard work and dedication! ^_^

Enough of work-related musings, and let’s start with the hobonichi diary updates! : ) I sound so different whenever I talk about work, haha!

Just click on the links below to go to the WIP (work in progress) videos of how I arrange my hobonichi pages with different styles.

As you can tell, I’m really, really enjoying this daily hobonichi (video) project / series. Views, shares, likes are just extra stuff for me actually.

Being able to share and practice my skills (analog + digital) = absolute happiness for Kaila ^^
