Hightide Weekly Planner

Posts on Hobonichi planner are no strangers to this blog, but I often wonder whether there are alternatives to Hobonichi that will work for my current two-planner situation. Plus, trying out new stationery items is always fun. Obvious win-win! At the beginning of 2017, I revived an old planner and filled it with Muji blank planner…

Stationery shopping in Taipei

cotBesides family and food, stationery store visits are one of the "must-do" while I am in Taipei.  The revival of writing and paper culture worldwide has also reflected in the rise of specialty stationery stores in the City. Guangnan (光南) It is not a stationery store by the strictest definition since the store is a combination…

Unboxing Hobonichi 2017

To me, the unboxing of a highly anticipated package can be exhilarating with a hint of magic.  The downside to the heightened anticipation is checking that tracking number chronically.  After about two weeks of waiting (I ordered mine on August 31, Pacific Standard Time), the signature yellow package from Hobonichi finally reached my door.

Hobonichi 2017

It is never too early/late to plan.  My incessant debate over which planner to use for the following year begins as early as June, almost around the same time as when Hobonichi rolls out various announcements on its exciting offers for the coming year. Check out the 2017 line up here.  The webstore will open September…

Hobonichi Techo Weeks

This is the third year I have used Hobonichi planner.  The first year, I have tried the original Techo in A6.  The Tomoe paper was versatile and I like the possibility of having a planner that can also be a journal.  The downside of it is that it is a tad small.  The second year,…

Hobonichi Techo Planner

Besides the meaning of "notebook", 手帳 (techo) also denotes pocket diary.  The format of the Hobonichi Techo planner definitely encapsulates both meanings.  Though I have the habit of using planners, I must admit I am horrible at using them.  The attraction was almost immediate when I first saw Hobonichi's planner and detailed explanation of different…

Word. Memorandum, a set on Flickr.Since I am giving away The Standard Memorandum by Word. Notebook, it would be nice for those who entered and those who are still looking for a new planner for the new year to know how it looks like inside.  Instead of embedding individual pictures within the post, I post…
