Anyway, I am inspired to do a "What's in My Bag" post after seeing it in a magazine somewhere.
This is the "dukha" version. No frills. No designer labels. Just the usual pharmacy items. Here goes.
My favorite bag is a dark plum color which I bought from SM some time ago. It's big enough to house my usual "dialysis" day stuff and more. I don't even care if it does not go with the color of my clothes. I wanted to go back and buy another one in black but they ran out.
I usually bring the following:
- A big scarf that I use as a blanket
- My cool flat wallet that I got at Robinson's for 150 bucks (a lot has been asking)
- My floral coin purse I got from Landmark at less than 200
- An umbrella (my mom always tells me that we live in a tropical country; rain or shine, an umbrella and fan are staples)
- Hairbrush (this is new)
- Katinko (staple)
- Bag organizer
- A small wallet for my cellphones and earphones
This bag organizer has been with me for years. I love it because It's easy to change bags. You just pick it out and put it in another bag. Actually, this isn't the usual organizer, it's just a toiletries bag. Inside it are a few staples like:
- Vicks vaporub and inhaler (for when my nose is stuffy and I start coughing)
- Compact mirror
- EOS lipbalm (very nice and minty)
- Avon lipbalm (for when I need tint)
- Rosary (uncle gave me this)
- Spiritual goodies (from one of my besties Anne)
- A necklace from my daughter
- Calchews (I can't take big tablets)
- A hairpin
- Loose change (for when you forget your coinpurse)
And then sometimes you'll find movie tickets, candy wrappers, wrapped toothpicks, receipts, and RECORMON stubs (I collect these because I can exchange 10 for 1 RECORMON injection free).
Not in the photos are some things that I also usually bring, like my fan (which is missing as of this post probably my daughter took it), a book, my ebook reader, food, and candies.
As I am just your usual sick-mother-who-has-nothing-to-do-at-home kind, I don't have that much luxury of personal items. Most funds are for the children and my healthcare. So if I am to buy a new bag, I'd have to think twice and then forget about it and just spend the money on a trip to the mall with the children, or on a life-prolonging process called dialysis. :))
So there. There aren't much and it's a boring bag. But I've done it! I feel sooooo like a fashionista! :))
I have done this post before I joined BC Bloggers, and this is the meme for August 22, so I just changed the date for this post. :)
