Schoolbag

After attending pre-school for nearly 1.5 years, it suddenly dawned on mummy that she has never bought me a decent schoolbag!

All this while, I have been using these small and flimsy bags that came as free gifts...

From left to right: Stitch sling bag, SE frog bag and SE tiger bag

Last year, when I was still in nursery class, I never brought any books home so I used the small Stitch sling back just to put my water tumbler and cap. The bag was part of the kids' activity pack courtesy of Cathay Pacific when we flew to Hong Kong last year.

This year, it was "upgraded" to the animal backpacks (that came as free gifts from Scotts Emulsion). However, both the frog and tiger bags were quite poorly made, especially the zips so their duties were short-lived.

When I broke the green zip a few weeks ago, mummy chided "Why are you so cow?" Today, mummy broke the orange one... oops! And I quickly shot back at her "Why are you so cow?

Well, we are not "cows" actually. These poor quality zips are too thin and brittle!

Fortunately, we have a new bag at home. Perfect timing. This is a "controversial" bag that sparked a heated debate between mummy and I in Parkson last week. Holding a stack of cash vouchers, mummy was feeling a bit generous and wanted to get me a sweet pink Hello Kitty backpack. I kept refusing and adamantly INSISTED on getting this Minnie Mouse one just because it was a trolley bag. Nevermind if it's cheaper than the Hello Kitty one, just as long as it's pink, got Minnie Mouse, I can PULL it, I wanted it...

My very first proper schoolbag :)

The bag parade... (hopefully it's not a case of hangat-hangat tahi ayam and mummy finds herself carrying it for me later!)

  2. Hehe, Yan Yan also asking a bag that can pull here n there one.. She said her classmate got wor..
    I don't quite like this kind of bag, if we were to pull this bag outside the house later pull back home again, very dirty lor. I don't think i like wiping the rollers everyday.

  9. Mummy Moon: You are so right! Not only do the wheels come home dirty, as she pulls along, the bottom part of the straps will drag along the floor! Aaargh! So regret letting her win haha. I should have just bought the HK one home quietly and not let her have the choice!

    Slavemom: The trolley bag IS heavy although it's empty. Sigh...

    Mummy Gwen: After coming home, she asked for HK pulak... really sampat. She saw a HK trolley bag there and wanted that too but it (RM200+) was out of my budget haha.
