bag loan

For lack something to do on a Saturday (it’s pathetic, I know), I dragged my housemates “D” and “A” (“V” went to Sta. Clara to have her new car blessed ata, haaayyy, kainggit) to Greenhills for a much needed adrenaline rush. Actually, gusto kong makita in person yung models (translated: fakes, imitations) nung mga designer bags na pinagpapantasyahan ko these past few days.

Here’s the story. Last week, I bought the September issue of Mega Magazine because Anne Curtis looked sooo fab and the cover promised new designer looks.

Although I don’t usually buy Mega or Metro for financial reasons (this will make sense later) I bought the mag because I’m in a fantasy mood.

Sa mga hindi familiar, Mega and Metro, unlike Girlfriend (I love this mag! Good work Gina!) and some other mags, features really expensive designer stuffs that I obviously can’t afford. After glossing over Mega or Metro, you’ll realize na — “putsaaa, sinong nakakabili nang mga ‘to?” Haayyy kainis!

To make matters worst, “A” came home with two Singaporean magazines in tow. One’s called “Female”, the other was “Her World” ata. Haayyy, lalong na-emphasize ang pagka-mahirap ko. Kasi naman, kung sa Mega at Metro 80% lang ng featured items ang hindi ko kayang bilhin, sa Female at Her World 95%. Lahat ata ng items dun mas mahal pa sa kotse ko. Let’s put it this way, if I sell my car, I’ll be able to buy a Neverfull Louis Vuitton and the super cute Gucci bag. Kulang pa nga ata eh.

In between our ooohhhs and aaahhs, “V” and I discussed how wonderful it would be to have an office bag loan. Parang car loan na you just have to shoulder a certain percentage and then the office pays for it. Ang saya siguro no?

If you’ll think about it, if image lang ang pag-babasehan, mas logical yung bag kesa sa kotse. Bakit? Paano? Unlike cars: Ang bag, walang maintenance at hindi na-ba-bangga. Ang bag hindi kailangang ipa-wash or ipa-wax every week, konting punas lang with a soft cloth okay na. Yung bag walang parking expense, hindi ka pa mag-wo-worry kung nandun pa ba sa pinag-iwanan mo. At ang pinaka-importante sa lahat, ang bag nadadala sa meeting, nai-rarampa, hindi naiiwan sa parking lot. Oh di ba, mas okay talaga and bag loan. I suggest ko kaya?

Anyway, when we got to Greenhills, we went through the tiangge muna. I bought a cute high waisted black skirt (it’s sooo last year pero hindi ko na-resist, it’s just P350.00 and it will look good with my polka dot shirt). “A” bought a really nice coat (costume daw nya pag-punta nyang Korea).

After that, we went to the triple A tiangge strip (yung sa tapat ng hagdan pa-akyat ng Shoppesville). Grabe, andun na lahat ng latest designer bags. I say latest kasi andun na yung Fall and Winter collections ng LV, Gucci, Prada, Balenciaga, Tods, etc. Andun na yung LV Monogram Jokes, LV Paris Souple and yung large boston babouska nang Gucci (yung may embroideries and charms). I love love love!

Pero ganon lang, we just looked at the models. Hindi kami bumili kasi (1) ang mahal kaya, hello! P6,500.00 to P8,000.00 for a fake bag! who are they kidding?; and (2) a few years ago, I promised not to buy fake merchandise anymore.  Haayyy, ang hirap!

Sana ma-approve ang bag loan proposal ko, hehehe.
