Manual Blogging ft. Hobonichi + Adventures with Abbey & Reesey

Hi everyone!

Just a quick photospam update of what I’ve been up to these weeks~!

As of today, I have 15+ blog entries waiting to be fulfilled starting last month. As much as I’d want to blog so often every after significant day / adventure with a friend, I’m trying my best to focus on enjoying everything first (and ~be more present~) and then finally compiling all the documentation later in blog entry form. Recently, I’ve been enjoying “blogging manually” using my first hobonichi.

I’ve been soooo busy with all the online / web-related work that’s why this very hands-on activity is something that I find very relaxing / stress-relieving.

Reminds me of the time when we were required to write on our “Reading Journal” + my “Hobby Craft Club” days back in elementary.

Plum Blossom Viewing at Hanegi Park, Tokyo + A Surprise Birthday Gift From Asmitha

Hi everyone!

Last weekend, Laura and I went to Hanegi Park in Shimokitazawa to see the plum blossoms!

The pretty plums aren’t in full bloom yet so if you are in Tokyo this week, better grab this opportunity! I recommend this to be added to your itinerary! 🙂

I seriously did not expect a “birthday package” again this 2016!
