#rockyourhandwriting: Quote of The Day
Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching.
Written on my Muji A5 dot-grid notebook using Pilot G-Tech Maica 0.4 in violet and blue using my own version of faux calligraphy and normal handwriting.
Cupcakes by Krizna (@kriz417) and choco mallows for our post-Valentine Breakfast Party. Diabetic alert! I love my ribbon header, so scrapbookish. I use the fancy wrappers in my paper book for the banner.

My beautiful assistants busily working at the back.
Writing on windows feel so liberating! It has the thrill of doing something bad like vandalism, but you know you would not get caught with it and you are not leaving any ugly writings. (Though some lettering on graffiti are so nice!) I am using the erasable chalk pens Phoebe sent me. 🙂
Me at work. Shet, fatness.
I enjoyed this day, and I am glad I and my teammates get to bond over something as a simple yet cute breakfast like this.
I know I should not be buying pens until next week, but I found Zig Kuretake Cocoiro letter pen in SUNSET ORANGE, and I could not let her go! Now that my bright letter pens are complete, I can now finally take a breather.
But those Faber Castell pastel PITT fineliners are so tempting!

Lately, I have been feeling sluggish, unproductive at work, lazy, and tired all the time, and I know that one of the reasons for it is my health. Two years ago, I ran 12 kilometers daily; now, I barely make 500 steps a day! I spend most of my time sitting, especially at work. Now, it is taking a toll on my health.
I read this article about Marie Kondo, the founder of KonMari method of decluttering, how she declutters her brain, and I tried it to see if I could identify the problem and make positive action plans towards those problems. Everything starts with the feeling, so yes, I will break it down one by one why I am not feeling good the past days.

#rockyourhandwriting: Where I Write
On my bed, my “other workstation.” We just have a small space at home, and I want all my tools and supplies in front of me or within my reach when I am working. Also, I love to lie on my tummy with my feet up in the air while writing, which you cannot do when you are writing on a table, yes?
In the picture, I have my Staedtler Triplus fineliners, Faber Castell coloured pencils, Soft Color milk gel pens, Dong-A Playon colour fineliners and markers, sticky notes, stickers, my snowman coffee mug which I used as a penholder for the meantime. Inside are my Pilot G-Tech Maica 0.4 gel pens, Muji gel pens in 0.38, Zig Kutetake Cocoiro letter pens, a cutter, and correction tape. On the left side is my A5 silver mesh bag filled with stickers and sticker notes. Of course, I need my Samsung Galaxy Tab to browse and save journal photos for ideas and inspiration.
#rockyourhandwriting: Drill – Your Favourite Word
I choose “wasurenaide.” I am pretty pleased of how it turned out. I guess doing drills at 2AM so as not to fall asleep while finishing work is effective.
Wasurenaide is a Japanese word which means “do not forget.” This is also the title of one of the Japanese songs of Tohoshinki, which I think, is one of their most beautiful songs. In life, there are good memories and bad memories, but I do not want to forget them. The good ones inspire, encourage, and give us hope to go on living; the bad ones teach and strengthen us to live our lives to its full capacity.
#rockyourhandwriting: Five Facts About Me
Yay, I can do faux calligraphy now, though there is still a looooooong way to go for me, but everything has a beginning, right? Having a bullet journal makes me want to improve my handwriting and to explore other styles of handwriting because my styles are now obsolete. Pffft! It is an amazing thing to see other people writing beautifully; they are so inspiring, and always, ALWAYS, they say it takes them a lot of practice, so yes, that is what I am going to do to.
So, what are the five facts about me?
- I cannot shoulder-carry a bag on my right shoulder. I carry stuff using my left hand, even though I am right handed. Maybe this is nature’s way of giving my right shoulder and hand a break.
- I like epic fantasy novels than young adult fiction. Young adult fiction nowadays are so cliche and overrated.
- I have very little to no hand-eye coordination. This is why I am bad at sports.
- I am an ESTP!
- I recently got charmed by judo. OMG, I never knew that I will be fascinated by judo, a sport considered boring by many, but wow, how beautiful it is. I never fail to watch each episode of Cool Kiz On The Block every Wednesday, and I am so always looking forward to see Jota play.
