Newt’s Suitcase! (Stationery Set)

No nifflers were harmed in the making of this post.

I was going through my things a couple of days ago* and I found this gem:

It’s Newt Scamander’s Suitcase (of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them fame)! My brother gave me this stationery set last Christmas –thank you, bro. I have something to write about.

Newt Scamander: Deluxe Stationery Set was released by Insight Editions. The same publisher also came out with other Harry Potter-themed stationery: HP journals (Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hogwarts and Deathly Hallows), FBAWTFT journals (Newt Scamander, Obliviate, City Skyline, MACUSA), and Deluxe Stationery Sets (Gryffindor, Hogwarts and Slytherin).**

I can’t believe they don’t offer Hufflepuff-themed stationery??? What a shame.

Honestly, I’d say the best thing about the set is the box. Yes. The whole thing comes in this sweet magnet-flap leatheresque box with a cute “muggle-worthy” detail.

日本 2015: Universal Studios Japan

Last hurrah. Universal Studios Japan, late night dinner and a flight back to Manila.

TIPS

There will be a lot of people in the theme park (this is a real tip I’m serious). I think it’s because many of the students and whatever have annual passes already, so they could all go together after school or work every other day, idk. The point is that there’s a lot of competition in terms of getting tickets to Universal Studios (they bar entry when the park has already reached capacity) and to the specific rides. 

We made sure to buy tickets before getting there —otherwise, best case scenario, you’d have to line up for an eternity and miss the chance to ride a lot of attractions later on. Universal Studios tickets can be purchased online or at select JR ticketing booths (just ask a tourist info personnel).

Lastly, make sure to run the moment the gates are open and head over to the timed ticketing area for the Wizarding World (otherwise you may not even get in!)
