My Br*un Buff*l brown handbag has been serving me for almost 2 years. I only have that one handbag eversince. Prior to that I was using a small Gu*ss bag (which could only fit a small handphone, a small purse and my car keys). I used the small bag for over a year too.
On Tuesday, I went to have lunch with a colleague. In the car, he complained on my handbag.
"You have been using this handbag like forever. Are you a man or a woman?"
Yeah, he must have thought that all women buy new handbags forthnightly. So, I simply told him,
"I don't have budget for handbags. I'm a married woman with 2 school-going kids, you can imagine my financial commitment." to which he responded,
"Eh, buy a new one lah... this one looks too 'buruk' already." I just laughed, thinking how nice it would be if I could get a new one for free.
Then, yesterday, as I was rushing in the rain to the gym, I grabbed my loyal handbag from the passenger seat. That was when I realised it was torn, there was a few inces tear near the zipper. I could see my house keys, purse, lipstick, lipgloss and eye shadow inside.
I suddenly felt so bad. Well, maybe the theory is right. Never discuss about replacing your old stuff with a new one in the presence of the old stuff. It's just like discussing about buying a new car inside your car. Before you know it, it will start breaking down without warning, showing some 'sickness' sympthoms and refuses to function as per normal.
So, after gym, I headed straight to a few handbag shops at IOI mall. Then, after about 20 minutes, I made up my mind. I bought this:
This time my handbag is not branded and not expensive, but it's practical and the look is rather 'bling-bling', okay.... When I brought it home, my kids really admired it, they even helped me transfer my stuff from the old handbag to the new one. I named my new handbag as 'Goldeneye'... demam James Bond maaaa....
