a weakness for laptop bags

I have some serious blog backlog here.

Just got back from Bangkok in the wee hours of Saturday morning, and I still feel a bit exhausted because I haven't exactly rested. But before I narrate the details of my Bangkok trip, I just want to share my latest purchase. Bought it the same day I landed in Manila.

It's a hellolulu canvas laptop bag which I got in PowerMac Center, which, by the way, has a nice selection of laptop bags for females.

The picture doesn't do justice to the bag; it's actually very pretty in person. It's my third laptop bag, although I don't see any reason why I should stop at three. I'm a bag person, really, and I like trendy laptop bags in particular, because--at the risk of sounding like an airhead--I believe that girls don't have to lug around those ugly, black, masculine-looking laptop cases.

For everyday use, I use a sensible pink-and-black canvas laptop bag which I bought from Powerbooks, but this coffee-colored hellolulu bag is my current favorite, and I can easily bring it to work or to the nearest Starbucks.

I also have this lovely pink [synthetic] croc leather laptop bag called "Workday" from redvanilla (it's the pink one at the right end of the picture), which I got a year ago and only use on certain occasions. One of the owners of redvanilla is a friend and former client of mine who has great fashion sense, and I'm super in love with her bag designs.

I am seriously considering buying (in the near future) another bag from redvanilla. The purple one from redvanilla's Chill line looks really sweet. But I'm also tempted to get the beige Workday bag because it'll go with a lot of my outfits.
Sigh. I'm being stupid and financially reckless here.
