[Lifestyle] My Nametag Bag(s)

I always like to support local businesses in Thailand for a long time but disappointed with some of them. (For example, 42-size-high-heels i bought from the internet that hurt my feet like hell, so the little mermaid i understand you now or sneakers that made me look like Pinocchio!) I decided not to buy shoes or anything else from local shop anymore! But after i discovered a personalised bag shop called, “Nametag”. I changed my mind. I ordered a brown Gym Bag (Dimension: W50 cm.) with my name “Pannita” on it. The bag arrived after about 20 days. Although it’s a bit pricey, i found that the quality is great. I immediately used it for my 4 days trip to Taiwan. I found that it’s made to withstand abuse and quite durable. On the first day, i slept at the airport using this bag as a pillow. For me, it’s perfect for 3-4 days trip and of course, a trip to the gym (which i do not take, LOL)! Anyway, I love it so much that i decided to order another one, Everyday Bag (Dimension: W38 x D15 x H23 cm.) with my nickname “Kor” embroidered in white.

[Lifestyle] City Backpacker Vol. 2

After got my hands on the famous and popular Kanken backpack, i’m now addicted to backpacks and bought more! I was torn between two brands, Hershel Supply Co. from Canada and Carrot Company’s anello EST. 2005 from Japan. But after I saw my friend using an anello backpack on our 4-days trip to Taipei, i decided to get one. I couldn’t find the right colour from any shop in Thailand, so i ordered it directly from Japan. It’s a bit more expensive, plus shipping and custom, but i’m super happy with the one i got! 😀

I bought the regular size one, Light Grey x Black colours. It looks small but comes with high capacity! The bag is very light and waterproof. There are 2 compartment, a main large one and a small one on the front where i put my small items like train cards, office access card and etc. There is also a zipper at the back so that i can access my stuff without having to open from the top. Very convenience, indeed! 😉

There is a mini size as well but it’s too small for me (and my stuff). LOL Btw, if you are interested in one, i recommended “Onimaru Shop”, “Choose ME” or “Nukoy Shop” , as there are so many fake ones in the market right now. Please, beware!

[Lifestyle] City Backpacker

It’s been a while since i last bought a backpack. It was in 2010 (5 years ago). I got a DaKnie laptop backpack when i was studying in Germany. I used it for trips and day out with my old 15″ laptop. The backpack comes with least 5 compartments for laptop, sunglasses and all. It also has hidden compartment on the back where i can put my important stuff like passport and wallet. I love how big but not too bulky it is! Although i switched to a desktop computer, i’m still using it for a trip that longer than 3 days or abroad.

However, this guy is no longer suitable for everyday use (without a laptop). So, it’s time to buy a smaller and lighter backpack and i decided to get a new one from Fjallraven Kanken. After took it on a short trip, this Kanken No.2 (Deep Red) backpack is great and durable. I like the colour and the waterproof fabric but the only disadvantage is it comes with only 2 compartments which is too few for me. I also got the Kanken Pocket (Black) which is a great compliment to the backpack. It’s perfect for mobile phone, wallet and some small things. Anyway, i love them and plan to get more Kanken products like the mini backpack or wallet in the near future. 🙂

[Lifestyle] What’s in my Make-Up bag?

I recently got a new make-up bag from Live Out Loud (http://www.liveoutloudthailand.com/). It’s very cute and functional.

[Lifestyle] Hair Straightener, my personal BA!

Stay beautiful, ladies! 😀 I recently got my hands on the new hair straightener by Philips and i think it’s really good. I use it after dried my hair with a normal dryer. I feel that it doesn’t damage my hair because i can adjust temperature (150, 175 and 200 C) to fit the condition of my hair. With my problematic slightly wavy and very fluffy hair, this thing will be my BA until i get hair rebonding, a straightening treatment!

Philips Moisture Protect Straightener (HP8372)

1. Innovative Moisture Protect sensor

Diagnoses my hair 30 times per second and adapts the temperature to preserve natural hydration

2. Ionic conditioning

Prevents static for smooth, frizz free, shiny hair

3. Floating straightening plates

Apply less pressure to hair to reduce the risk of breakage

As for hair dryer, i use the Panasonic ionity Silent Design 1500 (EH5374) which is also pretty good too. 🙂

Anyway, sorry for the short review! I’ve just started working at the new office at the beginning of March and still adjusting myself to the new environment. Wish me luck!

[Lifestyle] My Love-Hate Relationship with Fountain Pens

I have to admit that i hate fountain pens when i was a child. At school, all students were forced to use them in English classes and exams. Now i own a Lamy Safari Fountain Pen (Fine Nip, Charcoal Black Body) and a Lamy Joy Calligraphy Fountain Pen Set (with 1.1, 1.5, & 1.9 Nips) which received a gift earlier this year. My hubby is going abroad, so I gave the Lamy Safari and searched for a new fountain pen. Although Lamy fountain pens are known for their good quality, they are quite pricy for everyday use. The prices started from 28 USD. I decided to go with a cheaper pen and bought a Pilot Kaküno Fountain Pen for 16.50 USD.

Lamy Pilot Kakuno

It’s surprisingly good and easy to use. After got my hands on the first one (Fine Nip, Soft Blue), i immediately bought another 3 pens with different colours (Soft Yellow, Soft Violet & Soft Pink). I felt silly because they are actually designed for children! LOL 😀 I think as a child i wouldn’t hate fountain pens so much, if i had one of those! Anyway, i use them with 4 different colours of Pilot Namiki ink cartridge: black, blue, sepia and red. Love them all, especially sepia! However, the body of the pens are made of plastic, which may not be that robust, but good enough for everyday use. Highly recommended for beginners. 🙂
