Agree or disagree? No matter what, I would insist that bags are made for ladies, or should I say that there are bags made for ladies and bags made for men. But I bet the ladies do keep a collection of bags than men and quite a number of ladies are a bag fiend. Most of my friends are crazy about bags, any kind, any size, any brand, as long as it is a bag. Men can go out without carrying a bag but ladies can’t and whatever it is that a lady put in the bag that’s hard to leave at home is some kind of a secret between her and the bag. And don’t get curious about me and my bag cos there’s nothing much I can tell.
About a month ago, the mother of one of my students is into this kind of business thing, selling bags and jewelries, going around meeting Filipino friends to sell her stuff. While she brings her two kids to attend my Filipino class, she brings her stuff and tries to show me all afterwards. I am not that interested in jewelries, but the bags she is selling are hard to resist, hahaa! And for heavens sake, the first time I own a branded, quite expensive bag. I might be a bag fiend but I don’t go for a more classy, original ones. I remember I bought a Gucci imitation and a real copy-cat one in Davao and used it here. Mind you, somebody asked me if it was original, hahaa! But I was quick to reply no which I regretted afterwards. I should have said yes, lol! Back to the mother, last week she brought another branded bag, but doubled the price of what I bought before. Ack! I just closed my eyes and thought I couldn’t squander that much money for a bag.
Speaking of more bags, I got an email from Amor who invited me to sign-up at Handbag Planet which site is giving away a handbag every 24 hours on the day of the launch. I grabbed it of course, now I can’t wait to receive my handbag, if ever I am lucky enough to get one.
