Happy days are here! Spring has officially begun as these pinkish, cotton candy-like, ball of fluff are everywhere in Japan. I love it! By the way, this is my very random kawaii community appreciation post. Why am I kawaii? And why I love being with my kawaii.ph family?
Before my life with kawaii.ph and japanlover.me started, I’m doing fine traveling around Australia, thinking of my next step in life. Being free like I’ve always wanted, only to realise that freedom is not free, it comes with a price. After my OZ trip, I was thinking of staying in the Philippines for good but then an opportunity to work closer to Tokyo appeared and I took it. It’s my dream and if I won’t go for it, it will haunt me.. that’s what I’ve thought. There, I’ve met Kaila (who I called as my human lucky charm) and our other Kawaii.Ph friends and family. Even if we’ve only met once or twice during Kawaii in Manila 2, they’ve made me felt like I’m part of their lives and not just an option. I’m not saying that I’m receiving special treatment like how divas wanted, what I’ve felt is something genuine like how human beings should treat people. That they are loved, not used. I’m 25 now, and I know who’s treating me well and who’s abusing my kindness which I naturally am unless provoked… My life in Japan is a dream come true, kawaii lovers like me would understand. This is our mecca.
However, some where along the way, I got hurt for always wearing my heart on my sleeve (as I always do) and realise that there are things that aren’t worth my time like my day job. And then here are my kawaii.ph friends, believing in me no matter what. That’s the most important thing for me, not only because I wanted to have a support system but because I treat my friends as family and fortunately, they do too.
