I wouldn't know a "good" handbag if it came and bit me in the .. emm... hand. The one I usually drag around with me everywhere I go was actually a gift from my mother, she bought it on one of her trips to Sarawak (I think, they travel so often I forget). Anyway, it's a cute little thing, probably not much to look at but it served me well. Lately, it had become a bit worse for wear (even after reconstructive surgery - somehow the kids managed to snap the strap). Poor thing, having to hold in so many things in its petite body.

Things normally to be found in my handbag:

  1. Car keys
  2. House/office keys (note that the number of keychains surpass the number of keys)
  3. 2 Matric cards (one UKM student card and one IIUM staff card)
  4. Driving liscense
  5. Tissue (always depleted because other people always ask me for tissues *HINT*)
  6. Purse (always low on cash ..hehe)
  7. Small notebook and pen (you never know when it can come in handy)
  8. Compact powder, lipgloss and purse concentrate (I am a girl after all)
  9. Lense cloth/wipe (I can't seem to remember what those things are called- but it's used to wipe my glasses)
  10. My current read (always carry a book in my handbag- bookworm)
  11. Some strange things that shouldn't be there ; like Yousof's baju melayu buttons
No wonder, my old handbag was suffering. So in the end I decided the time for change had finally arrived. With the help of my trusted impromptu fashion consultant (hehe..) Zil, we managed to choose a suitable handbag for me. Actually my roomie Aida fell in love with it first (and she has good taste). Since I wouldn't know the difference between a Louis Vuitton, Coach, Gucci, Prada and Petaling Street or Chow Kit road knock-off, I decided to follow the gut instincts of those more well versed than I in such matters.

Still smells new :)

Personally I think it just looks nice. Don't you?
