In The Bag – 2012

I blogged about what’s inside my bag 4 years ago and now, I’m blogging about it again so  I we can see the current trash contents of the bag that I always use. It’s a black BCBG tote given to me by Tita Vina, my Mama’s sister. Hmmm… it’s actually her gift to my mom but I asked Ma if I could have it and give her my azure Kenneth Cole tote instead. Of course she said yes. :p

Let’s look inside, shall we?

WAIT. I first have to tell you that inside my big bag are 3 more mini bags (or pouch, whatever you wanna call it) because I hate clutter. I also don’t want to get a bag with lots of compartments. Nakakahilo kasi.


One of the 3 mini bags is my vanity kit or kikay kit. Since I am not that vain (pasakan ko ng mascara ang nostril ng mag-disagree), I only have a few items in my kit. I have 2 lipsticks (pink flame and puta red), an eye shadow palette (pearl, beige, kohl), blush (2 shades of pink), lipbalm, black and dark brown eyebrow pencils, black mascara, lash curler, hair elastics, hairpins, a couple of bandaids, toothbrush, toothpaste and Clinique Happy. Note that I don’t have a comb. Obvious naman sa magulo ko madalas na hair. BTW, I got the kikay kit from Leyende. Their products are gooooood.

Then I have this. I call it the Bangkok-bag because it IS from Bangkok, a pasalubong from my friend Miki. It stores my Nokia C3 and Samsung Galaxy W (used to take the pics), earphones, a battery pack/portable charger that I bought from CD-R King for 820php (I absolutely like it!!!), gum, meds for headache, fever, cough and vitamins C and B-complex, and a couple of teabags. Right now, the flavors that I like are lemon and peach.


The 3rd is a small RL handbag. It was a birthday gift from Carla and Joko some years back. This is what I usually bring when I’m too lazy to bring my whole bag and I need to go out of the office or the resto for stuff like ciggie breaks. Quick sling, easy go. It normally has my company id, coin purse, Mighty Mouse tyvek wallet, a black pen, a mirror (the most valuable thing in the entire big bag because it was a gift from my Dad when I was 8, he got it from Osaka), a small Cricket, some cigs, a hanky, a fan, and housekeys.


Other usual items in my bag are my main wallet… a dark pink Liz Clairborne wallet that has all my ids and cards, a small black umbrella with bunny-print, a black cardigan, a scarf or shawl (now it’s a purple MNG scarf), and a bottle of water. Sometimes, you can also find cookies and chocolates in there. And books. Or a small stuffed toy. It depends on my mood really.


I wonder what my bag says about me. Some new age know-it-all said that the bag defines the lady. I am not sure where I read that or I’m only imagining things. Hihi. But assuming that it’s true, I guess my bag says that I am a practical, self-contained, organized girl with a few surprises here and there. I forgot to tell you. There are some mutilated body parts in there too. HAHAHAHA KIDDING!

That’s it! I hope you don’t tell snatchers about the stuff I have. I’m scared they might lust after my exceptionally feminine (bwahahaha) Mighty Mouse wallet!
