Planner Pages

After a lot of consideration, I decided to turn back on the Downloads page of my blog so as to share the different printable pages I have offered before for different types of planner pages. A while back, I have disabled any downloads because my design has been plagiarized and been sold for profit! So…

Travel Journal | Saigon

My first “solo” trip in a long time without the kids. This year they decided to join their school trips and so I ended up going to Ho Chi Minh with my colleagues. Saigon is one of those places I’ve been wanting to go and it was great to have had this chance to explore…

Travel Journal | Kalanggaman Island

On our recent adventure to the southern part of Leyte, Kalanggaman Island, I decided to create a travel journal after we returned to Shanghai as I didn’t get much chance to do it while there. Although this island is off the main island, somehow it still is part of Palompon. Getting there from Tacloban is…

500 Colored Pencils: Wanderlust

This might now become a regular series in my blog… as I complete (I hope) my 500 colored pencils from Felissimo. A couple weeks ago I received in the mail my equally awesome set called Wanderlust. The name alone resonates me and my love for travel! So I added coloured pencil drawings or shadings into a…

Analogue 2017

January has passed and we are now into February, a short month. This post is a bit late but still,  I thought I’d share my analogue stack for 2017. Trying to keep things simple in 2017. These 3 notebooks are pretty much my EDC (everyday carry) plus lots of fountain pens. The Stalogy notebook (black…

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…

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…

Art Journal | Get Messy Season 8: Messy Lists Part 4

Sharing my pages for the GetMessy Messy List part 4. Somehow this set of prompts got me quite inspired to do quickly (unfortunately it took me a while to get this post out). I think it is also to do with having a smaller area to play with and getting most background done before putting…

Art Journal | Get Messy Season 8: Messy Lists Part 3

This blogpost is way way way overdue. My pages for the Get Messy Messy Lists #3 and #4 were done some time ago but somehow time went in a blur and kept forgetting to take photos of them for this post. So finally, I’m sharing my Messy List #3 here below. Thank you for looking.
