2016 is coming I guess everyone needs a diary. What will you be doing in 2016? For me I am going to start working, so with a diary it will help me to organise my days with weekly and monthly schedule. Its very hard to find your perfect diary or journal in a wide range of selection in the market. But finally I have invested in Midori Traveler's Notebook ( Regular Size) - brown leather my favourite colour after reading many reviews from the internet.
Besides buying from Amazon, Ebay ( expensive due to USD exchange rate ). Finally I glad to find the authorized dealer for Midori Traveler's Notebook, Japan in Malaysia - Tabiyoshop [ * TABIYO 旅よう in Japanese, means 'Let's Travel'.] I placed my order on the 21st December 2015 and received it on the 23rd December 2015. I was lucky to qualified for the Free postage promo code: ChristmaswiTabiyo (to enjoy free delivery within Malaysia only) - Ends on December 25, 2015. ( Just on time ) - saved RM 6.
The Midori Traveler's Notebook was suppose to deliver by PosLaju, but it did not arrive my place on the 23rd December 2015, so my dad went to the post office at 5:35pm and gave them the tracking number for my Midori Traveler's Notebook. So actually is "SELF COLLECTED" I was so happy that my dad collected for me.
Upon opening the package, I like the light smell of tanned leather. The basic design of the notebook involves a 100% real leather cover and removable notebook inserts, and that you can rearrange as you want. The cover is made of very high quality leather, and is available in black, brown (as mine is brown) regular. I can see why the quality leather goods are so expensive. You really have to feel it, look at it, and bend it to see what it's really like.
The leather itself is 2mm thick, vegetable-tanned and being genuine and unprocessed, it still has its original scratches and marks all of which contribute to its very 'raw' natural feel. The notebook very quickly acquires a well-travelled look and feel.
As you use your Midori Traveler's Notebook, it takes on character; a map of your travels and a mark of its use. Over the years, Midori will become your lifetime companion. Care for your Midori Traveler's Notebook by buffing and nurturing the leather and it will stay in optimum condition for many years to come.The really special thing about the Midori Traveler's Notebook is the range of accessories and refills available. They add great functionality to what is already a beautiful notebook, turning into an indispensible travel companion. They will have stock for the full range and will add new accessories and refills as they are created.

** Ensure your Shipment address is right ** for me my shipment address was not correctly submitted so I quickly informed them to change my address. Luckily they were so helpful and prompt attending my request. Overall I am very happy with their service and will definitely be a returning customer. Shipping was fast, and it all came securely in the box with the wrapper.
On the journal itself, I love the feel of the leather and the nice thing here is, as you use it more and hold it more, the better the leather will look. You won't regret it.
