2017 Planner Setup

Hi. Long time no see.

For the year 2017, I’ll be using the same planner I use this year which is the gorgeous Kate Spade Wellesley in black.

The only thing that is going to be different is the inserts, of course.

It’s hard to find good personal size planner inserts where I live. I tried Typo, Harris and other major bookstores in Johor Bahru but to no avail. So I decided to go online and I found this website called Paperdorable.com.

Thank god they carry personal size inserts! I’m so glad that I made the purchase and when it came in the mail a few day ago, the quality is good! Better than the Kate Spade ones that I’ve been using.

I believe this is the Dream Planner inserts from Paperdorable.com

The inserts do come with beautiful dividers but they’re just too colorful to my liking so I decided to make my own. I went ahead and used the pages from New York at Night, a photobook that’s been sitting on my nightstand for so long, collecting dust. It turned out great after I laminated them!

The dividers that I’m going to be utilized next years are HOME, MONTHLY, WEEKLY, EXPENSES and an unlabeled one to house random stuff.

I also made my own dashboard from the same book and a couple other inserts like my Bucket List insert, When I Did Last, Month at a Glance, cash envelopes as well as my Cash Flow Inserts. They are all in black and white. I am going for the minimalistic and simple planning routine next year so there won’t be any crazy colored spread.

I also made the page marker from a pvc sheet that I am so proud of because it is so cute.

Other than that, all the inserts are from Paperdorable.

Mental Breakdown In A Cave?

Hi!

The video of day 2 and 3 from the Perak trip I went to last month is already up on YouTube.

Me, my friends and my kids went to Gua Tempurung (cave), where I had a major mental breakdown LOL, and Kellie’s Castle as well as to Menara Condong.

It was indeed a very fun trip.

Fun In The Sun

My vlog has finally gone live!

It’s a 10 minute video of my trip to Perak the past weekend. Me, my friends and my kids went to Perak for 3 days (23-25 Sept) and this vlog is for day 1 only. We spent one whole day at Gunung Lang and Lost World of Tambun and Kinta City, Ipoh’s version of i-City, (which I did not vlog because honestly there wasn’t anything much to see there). However, I did see a lot like A LOT of people playing Pokemon Go! and of course, I banded together. I had to, guys. Gotta catch ’em all.

I had troubles editing the footage because first the quality was bad, guys! I was legit shaking the camera like hell. I think I should go see a doctor or something.

Secondly because there’s too much going on. I don’t wanna show what’s not needed to be shown (aka my fat ass belly, lmao) and scare people. So the edit out process was pretty difficult and at the end of the day, it didn’t bother me anymore.

So here’s the video. Enjoy!
