Travel Journal | Australia

This travel journal has taken the longest to complete I think, out of the travel journals I’ve made. One of the reasons was I did not do any of the pages while on this trip because I ran out of batteries on my Instax Share just as I was about to start on it. And…

DIY + Recycled Watercolour Set Tutorial

These days my head is filled with wanting to get more watercolours as part of my EDC (everyday carry) but haven’t been able to find the ‘right’ one apart from the Peerless watercolors I already have in my Traveler’s Notebook. Until I found these small clear containers on Taobao, but the coordinating case for it was still…

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…

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…

‘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…

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…

Travel Journal | Taipei

As with all my travels the past few years, I document these as much as I can. On the recent Taipei trip (read here and here), I’ve made the documenting even simpler with only a few basic stuff that I brought with me, packed into my Delfonics Inner Carrying pouch. Here’s a look at the…

Travel Journal | Tacloban City (Part 2)

This is the second part of the 2-part post of how I documented one of our summer trips. The first part can be found here. For this journal, I made a notebook to go into my Midori Travelers Notebook which turned out thicker than the first part. Which has it’s pros and cons. Srill, I’m…

Travel Journal | Yinchuan

My suitcase from the recent trip to the Philippines has not been completely unpacked and then I had to go on a business trip to Yinchuan. As I have not been to Yinchuan before, I decided to take this chance to take my kids along. And of course, I debated on whether I will do…

Travel Journal | Tacloban City (Part 1)

This is a 2-part post more because I ended up going to my hometown, Tacloban City, twice in July. I initially thought of putting both trips into 1 journal but I decided that on both trips, there will be different events and activities so I made 2. Here’s a look at some of the pages:…
