I've spent most of my life being negative. I lived under a cloud of gloominess.Talking about my previous relationships, morbidly sinking into self pity every time something didn't fall into place the way I thought it should. I was getting by -- still functioning, still having my bouts of fun, still experiencing fleeting moments of happiness -- but I wasn't happy. I wasn't at peace with myself or any of the things I was doing. The life I was living was far from positive and I never really saw thinking positively as an option.
The more I thought and wondered and wrote and read, the more I realized that this couldn't be it. This couldn't be how my life was going to be. I don't know when it was, but somehow I realized, I have always had an "aha!" moment with handbags. Every year, during my birthday, I normally request my dad to buy me a handbag as a gift.Obviously Chanel and Celine are not in his list. Unlike this year whereby my birthday is long way to go, 2 months and 4 days to be precised, I have collected 4 handbags on my own. I didn't ask dad to fork his $$$ except one gucci bag I bought in London last december during my short visit and Anya's glitter clutch to complete my collection.
Membazir right? I know. Last 3 weeks, when Anya Hindmarch had this preview sale, I grab one big leather handbag. Dad couldn't be bothered to reimburse back. So, I have to fork out my $$$ to buy the big brown bag down there. The bag is so big and what I can think of is one day, I can use that bag for my baby's diaper bag. Hahaha :p. Then, last week during my short visit to JPO, I fall for this DVF sutra leopard bag. It took me 30 minutes to decide. The pleasure of impulse shopping. AHA! I typically enjoy it. And, if I'm nothing else, I'm the type of girl who goes after what she wants. Handbags and I have this happy moment together!
