Hello there :)

Angela I'm Angela. I've been blogging on and off, but I've always been around. I like rambling about anything that strikes my fancy, be it personal endeavors, geeky pursuits, books I'm reading, writing attempts, occasional travel, and the games I play.

 

What’s in my bag

I don’t know what it is about handbags, but there has always been a huge attraction between girls and bags. Maybe it’s because as children, we wanted to be like our mommies, and mommies always carry handbags along. My sister is often the butt of jokes regarding handbags–does she have a flat clothes iron in there? (She used to bring along practically everything, like staplers and whatnot. I don’t know if she still does that…)

Well, because I have a pretty new bag, it felt like a good time to go through my bag and show what I bring along on a regular basis!

What's in my bag (April 2011)

Contents of doom!

  • Obviously, my camera isn’t here. Because I was using it to take this photo!
  • Why yes, that is a fluffy sock I use to wrap one of my lenses…
  • I don’t know why I have three different brands of pain killers with me: Dolfenal, Advil (my last one!) and Panadol. Uh, at least I have multiple fallbacks?
  • I know, I have pens but I have no notebook. I need to rectify that soon.
  • I seem to cut myself on the weirdest things, which is why I have Betadine and band aid in my kikay kit. And yes, I end up using it a few times…like just last week. (I also have a box of band aids in my office drawers…)

There are a couple things I want to bring/add to that list, but I haven’t yet because I haven’t found the right items–space and weight is at a premium, they have to be just right. Stuff like a small notebook and a good cheek stain. I daresay I have room for a book in there, but with the camera in the bag, books are a bit heavy–especially since I am reading The Wheel of Time currently -_-;; I need to find a smaller umbrella too, but I am reluctant to part with automatic models :s

So that is what’s in my bag. What’s in yours?

  • LOVE love love kelly moore bags. I was so sad that the style you have couldn’t fit a macbook, though!

    Okay. So I now have the urge to make an attempt at organizing my purse. There goes my afternoon! :P

  • [...] not read at all. I was mourning the lack of time, but also quite unwilling to add 300-400g to my everyday bag for a book I may or may not have any downtime to read that day, and disliked ending up with books [...]

  • “My sister is often the butt of jokes regarding handbags–does she have a flat clothes iron in there? (She used to bring along practically everything, like staplers and whatnot. I don’t know if she still does that…)”

    –Hindi na! Mas marami ka na ngayon dala kaysa sakin. Wahaahahah! Pero how you are able to fit everything in a small bag… that is amazing! That has always been my problem. :/

  • I am so relieved to know I’m not the only one who carries an almost-complete first-aid kit in her purse! (Though I end up being the one to use it most of the time, LOL!)

    Can’t believe you can fit all that in that little bag! (Then again, I wondered how I fit pounds of receipts in my bag…but that is another story.)

    • :O It’s not very little! It’s not HUGE, but it’s certainly not little. I fit all the cosmetics and first aid stuff in that little green pouch, after which, there’s only a few items left, all easily a good fit for pockets and the adjustable compartments. :)
