Travel Journal | Seoul

This post is supposed to be about Australia but at the last-minute our plans changed. We literally decided to go to Seoul the day after my visa to Australia was not released on time. Did not have much time to prepare for this trip and ended up using one of the 1/2 Trip notebook inserts I…

Me and my Traveler’s Notebooks

Me and my little collection of Midori Traveler’s Notebook – I only have 3 plus a mini – are well-used as you probably have seen in this blog and thru my IG feed. Yes, I started making my own about 5-6 years ago when I first saw one here in Shanghai, back before there was…

Kyoto & Osaka Book

A few days before our last trip to Japan, I managed to cram some time into finishing this book that has been in my to-list since last year! Somehow I started it but never managed to finish it. So I made sure that this was finished and sent to the printer before we went on the Tokyo trip….

First TN Meetup in Shanghai

This post is a wee bit long overdue. For some reason, I keep forgetting to post this! Anyways, last 28 May, was the very first official Midori Traveler’s Notebook meet up that was sponsored by Midori. It was quite an honour and a privilege to have been invited to join, one of the very few…

Travel Journal | Tokyo

It has been a while since I last posted anything on my blog. Sorry for that. I’ve been dealing with a lot of work stress leading up to our Tokyo trip. Fortunately I had an extra handmade TN insert I had made a while ago so used it for documenting our trip to Japan. The…

Travel Journal | Taipei 2016

A few weeks ago, I made my way to Taipei again for a whirlwind 3-day trip to get some personal matters sorted out. As it was a short trip, I decided to make use of the unused  pages in my TN insert I used before. My entries this time is quite a contrast to my…

Currently…in May

Welcoming the month of May with open arms. Full of possibilities and finding inspirations. Unfortunately we have been experiencing a lot of rainy days in Shanghai. Location: office // 10:30am Doing: hitting the gym for 1 hr after I drop kids off and before I go to work Watching: Arrow (with the kids), (just finished) Game of Thrones…

‘Happy Little Moments’ Workshop

So excited to share with you all about the recently concluded Planner/Journal Market (手帐集市)that was held last May 1. This is the third time that I’ve been to this 1-day event but this time around, I was asked to give a 40-minute workshop about decorating with Instax photos, wash tapes, stickers and etc. on the Midori…

Currently…in April

Life has been a bit of a rollercoaster the past few months, to say the least. It’s been a while since the last post, so I decided to keep my blog updated and do a ‘Currently…’ type of post, keeping things short and well, current. Location: office // 8:15pm Watching: Chicago PD, Madam Secretary, Scandal, Chicago Fire Reading: The…

2016 Analogue System

Pretty much before 2015 ended, a lot of people would already have clear idea on what choices they have made for their analogue system – planning and documenting. To be honest, I actually had a clear idea back in December. I started with this Stalogy for journaling… (#lifecapturedproject is not continuing in 2016 which is a…

Travel Journal | TAC + MNL

A last-minute decision to make a trip to my hometown to visit family was pretty much a blur from the time before we left and the time we came back. If you follow me on IG, I posted about moving to a new apartment, which in itself was a BIG STRESS. The unpacking and the…

#lifedocumentedproject

December 2014, I got inspired to do some journaling using the prompts from Life Captured Inc (#lifecapturedproject). In 2015, I continued journaling as a way to take a breather and also document using words (and in some cases, adding in some doodles and brush lettering), about our life in Shanghai. I enjoyed it a lot…
