Nostalgia - Native Bag

My entry is this old bag that my friend gave to me as birthday gift. She knows that I like native bag like this. I had two of these before but one of my closest friend asked the other one in exchange with her coach purse that her sister from US gave to her. I worn out the other one and broke one of the handle. Anyway, imagine how much you can buy this bag in the Philippines, but my friend pulled everything off out in my bag so I won’t say no. Sometimes, simple bag like this is pretty. For me I find this bag fashionable and trendy. I miss using this bag everyday to work. I actually brought the bag with me here in the US for some reason that if I left it in there, my mom and sister would probably use it and perhaps break it.


PhotoHunt- Bag

It’s Halloween trick or treat time and it is also a photo hunting time. This week theme is about bags, and I happened to hunt my picture folder and saw this bag that has been with me for decade now. I always take this bag anywhere, and there was one time when I was still in the Philippines. I was with my friend and we were on the jeepney going to the mall. We were so busy chatting and talking, we didn’t notice that there was this woman in her 40s who sat next to me. So, while we were busy talking, the hand of this woman was busy undoing the string in my bag. My bag was on my lap and she covered it with her fan or something. I felt that my bag was moving at that time so I turn my head around to look at her and saw her face blank as she was shocked that I caught her. She took off right away as soon as the jeepney stopped feeling embarrassed. That woman was a snatcher, and one of the snatcher modus operandi is to seat next besides you with their coat on their lap to cover part of your stuff so they have access to snatch your wallet or cellphone or valuable accessories in your purse.
My bag is a saviour, the string inside helped, in taking a long time for that woman to open my bag. And besides, this bag is so small and easy to carry anywhere I go. Now I am using it to put couple of diapers,wipes, juice and food for Jake whenever I took him for a walk.
