Two reasons why I love the Moleskine Passion Restaurant Journal:
REASON #1 - I'm an avid fan of Moleskine. I've tried all kinds; monthly, weekly, daily, blank notebooks, limited editions. I sometimes even keep two at a time, one as a planner and one as a journal or a scrapbook. It was only this year that I didn't buy a Moleskine. I figured I already have my cat portfolio as my work and personal planner and my Jane a Day journal as my diary, then I have a Starbucks planner as a doodle notebook. So for the first time in 7 years, I did not buy a Moleskine.
REASON #2 - T and I dine out so often that I have a lot of dining experiences in restaurants I want to share here in my blog. But because I don't get to write every day, I forget about the restaurant or even if I do remember, I have difficulty recalling what we ate and what we thought about it.
So when T told me about the Moleskine journal made specifically for dining out experiences, I wanted one! Unfortunately, it was gone when we went to Fully Booked Alabang, where he saw it. But the accommodating staff called other branches, found a piece, and had it reserved under my name. Yipee!
After a few days, I got my Moleskine Passion Restaurant Journal from Fully Booked Alabang and I'm having a blast using it. I get to write our thoughts on the spot which serves both as a reminder for future blog entries and as a diary of our dining experiences. It also has a "Wishlist" section where I can write the restaurants I want to try. Neat!
But you know what the best part for me is? Not breaking my tradition of having Moleskine notebooks or planners every year (same for Starbucks which I purposely don't collect but sayang naman if I don't redeem since I'm a Starbucks coffee addict) #OCproblems
How about you? What planner are you using this year?
