You know you want it! ^_^;
Today, I went with my friend, April, to eat some Dim Sum. She's never had it before and I was craving for awhile. The last time we went, I was sick with the flu and couldn't taste ANYTHING ;__;
We ended up going to Asian Pearl 2009 (why is there a 2009 at the end of it?) because it's closer to April.
She liked it. She thought a lot of the food was yummy and adorable.
Not even ALL that we got. Lol.
She wanted to try them ALL! We were there really early so it was still a bit empty (especially since a new place opened and everyone seems to be going there, which is weird since they're the same owners ;P), more people arrived as we were leaving.
This is one of my favorites. It looks gross though Lol.
Anyway! As I said in my previous post, I ordered a Filofax and was impatiently waiting for it's arrival. I was quite annoyed that there was a holiday yesterday. If there wasn't, then I would've gotten it yesterday. Lol. I was so excited about it that I even dreamed about getting it! I ordered late at night on January 17th and got a shipping confirmation the next day! Super fast! Well, I got it super fast too! O_O; cuz like I said, I received it today!
Anyway, here's how it came in. The one I ordered is a Finsbury Pocket in Antique Rose.
Who knows why I took a pic of this, but I did :P
This is what it looks like, I think the color is a little washed out because of my LED light. But it's quite gorgeous. Though, I'm not much of a pink person... ^_^; I still like it.
This close up shows the Filofax embossed logo and it's true color. I forgot that there was an embossed logo and nearly panicked in seeing a "defect" ^_^;;; Then, I realized what it was. Lol.
Here's a size comparison (as much as I could get it to angle -_-; ):
Finsbury Pocket (Top)
MoMoi Diary (Middle)
Moleskine Sketchbook (Bottom)
The Finsbury is slightly smaller than my MoMoi Diary.
Here's a size comparison to my Moleskine sketchbook (which, btw, I'm neglecting lol)
Here are the inserts that I purchased. [Already stuck them into the Finsbury]
I used the extra/unwanted sheets to test out the pens I have....
Wow! People were right about the Filofax papers...it's very thin. most of the pens I have you can see on the other side :/
I took out the included index tabs...
Put some colorful ones in instead.
The inside flap...
The flyleaf has an annoying barcode sticker stuck on there. I took it off but it left sticky residue on it ;/
This is the inside of the Filofax box. I'm keeping my leftover/unwanted sheets in here.
The back (inside) of the Finsbury...
Taa daa! It's gorgeous and stupidly cute ;)
I spent 2 hours trying to get it the way I want. All the colorful sheets I put in, I took out again. They're actually used for Purikura / Stickers, so when I added tabs, they kept falling off :/ So, I just stuck the provided tabs back in. I'll have to do a post on how I have it set up. I haven't decorated it yet or anything (okay, I lied. I added like 3 stickers :P) so right now it's just a basic planner with how I want everything organized.
I'm hoping this'll help me work out my regular life/home life/ and my i+t store....
