Crumpler House of Horror – Gadget Bag Backpack

Posted by on Mar 12, 2013 in Bags, Fashion, Tech Chic, Travel

Crumpler House of Horror – Gadget Bag Backpack
There are a lot of fashionable bags in the market with great design and of different sizes and shapes.  But finding a stylish bag that’s comfortable to carry your brick-like laptop is quite difficult to find.
Most often than not, I get rashes from straps that aren’t designed to equalize the weight distribution properly, harming my skin, sometimes leaving a scar for a while.
For a person who also has scoliosis, doctors would normally suggest backpacks instead of totes or shoulderbags.  All these benefits and things I need for my back are in House of Horror.
Like most Crumpler bags, this bag is guaranteed for life.  That’s an investment you need to make to protect your gadgets especially my expensive MacBook and iPad.  You can’t match those gears with a cheap and gruntled design that’s easy to break!
The House of Horror has 5 pockets: Quick access front zippered pocket, concealed  top opening zippered stash pocket, zippered top opening main cargo space, interior padded sleeve with velcro closure for up to a 15-inch laptop and interior zipped side pocket.
Comfort is not an issue with the House of Horror.  It feels good on my back, despite the heavy load.  Manily because of the even weight distribution.  The pads are soft yet strong designed to hold the shape, while moulding naturally to the contours of your hand or shoulder.
The shoulder harness is also quick to adgust.  I didn’t struggle much from adjusting the straps and the buckles are just easy to adjust.
This bag is a bit pricey at P4950 SRP, but the one thing that makes House of Horror a good investment is the durable quality that’s guaranteed fo life (as I mentioned ealier).  Plus, the materials are made from water resistant structures, even the zippers as well!
SRP: P4950

Crumpler Flock of Horror – Your Everyday Gadget Bag

Posted by on Mar 11, 2013 in Bags, Fashion, Tech Chic

Crumpler Flock of Horror – Your Everyday Gadget Bag

Crumpler has been really creative in their bag designs and their naming system. For the name “Flock of Horror” for a bag, you’d think it’s a scary, haunted, crazy bag – my imagination just runs wild but simply, it’s a house for your everyday gadgets!

I don’t know how many percent of the population in Manila comprises of office people but this bag is surely for them and for the daily commuters as well.

 

Design

The design is unique with its flip top cover.  Secure enough to seal the zipper.  I think it will do a good job fooling thieves don’t you think?  Although, you’d think this bag is small – but it can actually fit a 15-inch laptop!

You can carry it like a tote, backpack-like or a sling bag.

 

Storage Zones

One thing I love about Crumpler bags is that they have a lot of pockets and separate room for your things, making them the most organized bags you’ll ever have.

It has five storage zones:

– Quick access front zippered pocket

– Concealed top opening zippered stash pocket

– Zippered top opening main cargo space

– Interior padded sleeve with velcro closure for up to a 15-inch laptop

 

Comfort in Carrying

Flock of Horrer has padded carry handles.  This is meant for carrying the bag comfortably despite the weight.  You know how our laptops could weigh like a ton of brick sometimes!

The padded carry handles are soft, but sturdy strong.  The bag’s foam padded twill weave carry handles are designed to hold their shape while mounting naturally to the contours of your hand.

What a relief!  I always get rashes from strap burns.  I’m not sure if most of you get this too.

The shoulder harness is also adjustable.  You know how petite I am and I need the strap to be a little tighter.  The shoulder harness features a 38mm soft webbing strap design with easy-to-adjust buckles.  This way, you can position it exactly where you need to ensure an even and ergonomic weight distribution.

 

Water Resistant

For a gadget bag, you’d want to invest on a water resistant portable storage.  Flock of Horror is one and it does the job of protecting your gadgets.

The Flock of Horror is designed from water resistant materials and water resistant zippers for maximum protection in wet weather.

 

Life Guaranty

When you invest in a Cumpler bag, you usually get a guaranty for life!  House of Horror is no exception.  They constructed this bag with ultra durable materials and reinforce the joining and / or stitching on all stress points – carrying Crumpler’s famous lifetime guarantee.

 

SRP P4,950

Crumpler Ultimate Exit Bag Review: For the Travel Savvy and Gym Bunny

Posted by on Jan 10, 2013 in Bags, Fashion, Featured, Sports

Crumpler Ultimate Exit Bag Review: For the Travel Savvy and Gym Bunny

 

I went back to my hometown in Bacolod and chanced upon passing by our owld Bowling center.  It was empty!  I felt sad because bowling is just so much fun!  It’s a social sport.  You bowl and hang out with your friends over a few food and drinks.  Best part is, it is healthy!

I miss those days.

Speaking of old-school bowling bags, my next bag for review is exactly just like that.  Crumpler’s Ultimate Exit bag looks very vintage athletic.  It’s a one-size-fits-all-needs and genre defying combo of schmick sporty chic and shopaholic strength capacity.

It comes in different colors but my ultimate favorite is the combination of gray and yellow.   Like the one I have here!

 

Ultimate Exit
P 3,750

 

It’s a perfect bag to travel for me.  When I travel, I can’t let go of my SLR, phones and iPad (which I use as map and tour guide).  These things won’t fit on an ordinary, low-strength straps build kinda bag.

The handles are comfortable to use because it is padded.  Plus, it has a detachable shoulder strap that gives you options on how to carry this chic bag.  The overall design ensures you come quickly to grip with loads of any shape or size.  A bonus, it has three internal stuff pockets that help sort order from the usual girly bag chaos.

“Strong is the new SEXY”

 

Storage Zones

The insides were designed to hold three internal stuff pockets, including one witha  velco closure.  This is all zippered in the 29 litre main compartment

 

Padded Carry Handles

The handles come cushioned with EVA foam which gives maximum comfort to the user.  The handles are quite ergonomic and moulds to the natural contours of your hand and fingers

 

Detachable Shoulder Strap

You can carry this bag in many ways.  One option is to use the detachable shoulder strap if you want to free your hands to hold other things.  Complete with velcro fasteners and tri-grlide buckle system, the 25mm wide shoulder strap helps distribute weight evenly and will go to almost any lengths to make you comfortable.  I appreciate designs like this.  The people behind this bag look out for a normal-day bag concern from the most of us.

 

Water Resistant

The bag’s exterior is made from water resistant materials.  Don’t just throw it in the pool though, that’s such a silly move!  It just means that this bag is protected from rain, harsh weather, dust and some other external factors.

 

Guaranteed for Life

The good thing about Crumpler bags is that they offer a life guarantee for most of their products.  They constructed the Ultimate Exit with durable materials and reinforce the joining and/or stitching on al stress points.

Get this bag at your nearest Crumpler Stores: Trinoma, Bonifacio High Street, SM Megamall, Robinsons Manila.

Crumpler Headaitch Review: Your Everyday Bag

Posted by on Jan 9, 2013 in Bags, Fashion, Featured, Style Flair, Uncategorized

Crumpler Headaitch Review: Your Everyday Bag

I don’t settle with just any bag.  To me, a bag must be a wonderful partner in my daily life.  A friend once told me that her mom would reprimand her if she doesn’t bring any bag with her because it’s so “un-girly.”

A girl carries a lot of things: makeup, power planners, gadgets, dogs?

Unlike guys, we don’t wear pants all the time and we don’t have access to pockets mostly.  Even if we do, we would look like stuffed lumpiang shanghai with all the things we are trying to carry!

On a normal day, I’m a pretty busy chic.  I carry the above mentioned things (except for dogs).  I prefer carrying an oversized bag sometimes because I would totally look more petite with it 😛 I’m kidding.  That just means I can stuff many things like umbrella, scarf and other items if I shop around.

So, I was looking for a perfect new partner and I found this bag from Crumpler to be quite a match for me.

Crumpler bag Headaitch

It’s not just for me.  It’s also for beach bums, gym junkettes, student chic and retail therap-ettes!  You have all the space you want with this carefree tote that can care most of it all!

 

Flexibility and Accessibility

Don’t be fooled.  This bag is designed to sort order from chaos.  If you check out the compartments inside, you will se a combo of sealable internal pockets.  You can carry it off or on your shoulder with the essentials readily accessible.

Go shop in Divisoria and you won’t worry about getting snatched.  Everything remains covered up from inclement weather and light-fingered fiends!  Observe precautionary measures of course!  But trust me, thieves would get turned off if they see you carring this bag because it won’t be easy for them to dig in.

 

Wide Straps

The wide shoulder straps gets you more power when you carry more stuff.  The Headaitch’s dual 42mm 900D and 150D Rip-stop shoulder straps helps to distrubute the weight.  My doctor doesn’t recommend shoulder straps for me because I have scoliosis but sometimes I JUST have to wear one!  I can’t be wearing backpacks all the time!  This wide strap helps me on that angle for even just a bit :)

Waterproofing Measures and Anti-Abrasive Surfaces

One great thing aobut this bag is that it gets protected from rain, hail (haven’t really experienced one), sleet, snow, beer or mixed drinks.  The bag was designed to have a 900D outer, 1000D reinforced base and zippered 150D Rip-stop main compartment.  If that’s to technical for you, it just means it is designed to weather the storm and keep what’s in it dry.

It’s a perfect bag for surfers like me!

It’s a good investment to buy a bag that lasts.

 

Tough Build

Speaking of bags that last, you’ll get this as a prime bonus!  – A lifetime guarantee!  This bag is designed to outlist its lifetime guarantee with super strength materials I mentioned above plus an injection moulded velcro and bonded nylon thread with reinforced stitcing on all stress point.

 Price:  P2750

Get this bag at your nearest Crumpler Stores: Trinoma, Bonifacio High Street, SM Megamall, Robinsons Manila.

Posted by on Dec 23, 2012 in Bags, Fashion, Featured

Rolser Trolleys: Fashionable Eco-bag Strollers

A few stores in the metro don’t allow any use of plastic bags anymore. It’s great cause it’s a worthy cause to save the environment. The downside is, it could be such a hassle to carry all your grocery items and other goods you shopped with a paper bag. This is where eco-bags come in handy.

I’m going to introduce you to a more comfortable solution: Rolser Trolleys

Rolser Trolleys are the ultimate shopping bags that are fashionable and comfortable to use!

Quite often stuff that dreams are made of appear from where you least expect it. Just like Rolser, a fashion-forward, eco-friendly line of trolleys made in Spain.

I actually use Rolser Trolleys to move things around from one house to another (my mom gives me lots of stuff for my apartment).  It’s also very handy for laundry!  I can also use it to carry my portable pole.  Yes.  A chrome metal pole.

I have scoliosis and I shouldn’t carry really heavy stuff for a long time.  So Rolser does quite a good job in solving that problem.

The exclusive design of the eco-friendly bags together with the strong and durable frame with a capacity 20 Kgs / 44 lbs. Two wheel shopping trolley; High quality and solid; waterproof .Takes up minimum space when folded .Light and modern; minimalist design.

 

Rolser Trolleys come in the following zesty colors:

001 -JET LN MALVA                                   001-JET LN ROJO

Crumpler Bags Stylish Camera Bags

Posted by on Jan 25, 2012 in Bags, Fashion, Tech Chic

Crumpler Bags Stylish Camera Bags

Check out thes Crumpler bags I got for review!  Stylish, chic and very capable of protecting your camera and gadgets with the quality of materials they use and the functional designs of these different bags.

 

5 Million Dollar Home

Polished professional. Aspiring Amateur. Happy snappy chappy or chapette. It makes no difference. If you want to haul a basic set of camera or video equipment, and protect it from the elements and things that go bump in the night or day, give the Five Million Dollar Home a shot.

Offering more capacity and flexibility than the Four Million Dollar Home, it’s as tough as old boots, water resistant, comfortable to carry and choc-a-bloc with quick access pockets and customisable space.

VELCRO SILENCERS

Lurking behind the bagís velcro fasteners are matching velcro silencer flaps. Pull ’em out. Press ’em in position. Open and close on the QT, then lock down with the side release compression straps. Ssshhhhimple!

FLEXIBLE, ACCESSIBLE SPACE

To ensure you can put in lots of gear, we first put in lots of thought. That’s why the main compartment features two configurable brushed padded nylon dividers with fold down flaps, plus a separate zippered mesh pocket. Why the dual zone front pocket features gusseted sides. And why you can access the side stuff pockets without even opening the bag.

WIDE, ADJUSTABLE LENGTH STRAP

The more gear you carry, the more you need a wide shoulder strap to distribute its weight. That’s why the Five Million Dollar Home’s shoulder strap is made from 50mm flamed polypropylene webbing. Complete with tri-glide buckle system, it will go to almost any lengths to help you get that great shot.

PADDED CARRY HANDLE

Cushioned with EVA foam for maximum comfort, the ergonomically styled carry handle is shaped to match the natural contours of your hand and fingers.

QUAD ACCESSORY LOOPS

Left and right pairs of reinforced side accessory loops let you attach other photo-gidgetry and gadgetry for instant access.

WATERPROOFING MEASURES

The seamless one-piece 900D base prevents water seepage when the bag is placed on wet surfaces, while the double thickness 900D flap does the same to rain, hail, sleet, snow, beer and mixed drinks.

 

4 Million Dollar Home

Polished professional. Aspiring Amateur. Happy snappy chappy or chapette. It makes no difference. If you want to haul a basic set of camera or video equipment, and protect it from the elements and things that go bump in the night or day, give the Four Million Dollar Home a shot.

Offering more capacity and flexibility than the Three Million Dollar Home, it’s as tough as old boots, water resistant, comfortable to carry and choc-a-bloc with quick access pockets and customisable space.

VELCRO SILENCERS

Lurking behind the bagís sizeable velcro fasteners are matching velcro silencer flaps. Pull ’em out. Press ’em in position. Open and close on the QT, then lock down with the compression strap. Ssshhhhimple!

FLEXIBLE, ACCESSIBLE SPACE

To ensure you can put in lots of gear, we first put in lots of thought. That’s why the main compartment features two configurable brushed padded nylon dividers with fold down flaps, plus a separate zippered mesh pocket. Why the dual zone front pocket features gusseted sides. And why you can access the side stuff pockets without even opening the bag.

WIDE, ADJUSTABLE LENGTH SHOULDER STRAP

The more gear you carry, the more you need a wide shoulder strap to distribute its weight – and the more you’ll appreciate the Four Million Dollar Home’s soft but strong 38mm flamed polypropylene webbing. Complete with tri-glide buckle system, it will go to almost any lengths to help you get that great shot.

ACCESSORY LOOP

The reinforced side accessory loop lets you attach other photo-gidgetry and gadgetry for instant access.

WATERPROOFING MEASURES

Be it rain, hail, sleet, snow, beer or mixed drinks, the bag’s 900D outer is designed to weather the storm and keep your equipment dry.

ANTI-ABSRASIVE SURFACES

The 900D outer and brushed padded nylon interior combine phenomenal strength with exceptional smoothness and malleability. Your clothes don’t catch. Your equipment don’t get scratched.

 

The Hoax

Reserved only for LTD Edition projects, The Hoax is always a crowd pleaser.

FLEXIBLE, ACCESSIBLE SPACE

To ensure you can put lots of stuff in and get to it pronto, we first put in lots of thought. That’s why the large main compartment is also host to a deep, velcro-fastened centre pocket plus left and right deep stuff pockets.

DUAL VELCRO FLAP FASTENERS

Seal the Hoax’s outer flap with its dual injection moulded velcro fasteners and even the most dexterous pocket pickerer will struggle to get their mischievous mitts in unnoticed.

WIDE, ADJUSTABLE LENGTH STRAP WITH REMOVABLE SHOULDER PAD

The more stuff you carry, the more you need a wide strap to distribute its weight – and the more you’ll appreciate the Hoax’s soft but strong 50mm flamed polypropylene webbing and removable Air Mesh shoulder pad. Complete with QuickFlick™ buckle system, it will go to almost any lengths to ensure the bag sits right where you want it.

DUAL QUICK RELEASE COMPRESSION STRAPS

Particularly paranoid about your personal belongings? Excess-ing your baggage? Bring the two quick release compression straps into play. Exhale. Click. Tighten. Done. What a cinch.

DUAL ACCESSORY LOOPS

One of the reinforced side accessory loops makes a handy hideaway for surplus strappage. The other is perfect for any frippery, baggery, gidgetry, gadgetry or other hangers on of your choosing.

REFLECTIVE STRIPES

Make yourself – and your views on passing motorists – plain as day, and even more obvious at night, with the bag’s twin reflective stripes.

 

The Barney Rustle Blanket

The exceptional that proves the rule, the full-featured Barney Rustle Blanket manages to be all things to all people seeking a messenger style bag as uniquely perfect as themselves.

Proportioned to carry loads without ever weighing you down, it fits A4/foolscap-sized folders in its 14-litre main compartment, plus all your digital doodads and everyday essentials across an array of easy access pockets. Dual velcro flap seals and closure straps with quick release locks keep everything secure, while the extra-wide, padded shoulder strap with patented third leg keep everything stable.

Loud and proud with its kaleidoscopic colour way combos, the Barney Rustle Blanket features a water resistant 1,000D outer complete with reflector strip and accessory loops, and a 300D Rip-stop lining. Like all Crumplers, it comes with a ‘Til death do us part’ lifetime warranty.

FLEXIBLE, ACCESSIBLE SPACE

To ensure you can put lots of stuff in and get to it pronto, we first put in lots of thought. That’s why the large main compartment is also host to a deep, velcro-fastened centre pocket plus left and right deep stuff pockets. Why there’s a full-width internal zippered pocket and external velcro-fastened front pouch. And why there’s a secreted external short stuff side pocket below both accessory straps.

DUAL VELCRO FLAP FASTENERS

Seal the Barney Rustle Blanket’s outer flap with its dual injection moulded velcro fasteners and even the most dexterous pocket pickerer will struggle to get their mischievous mitts in unnoticed.

WIDE, ADJUSTABLE LENGTH STRAP WITH REMOVABLE SHOULDER PAD

The more stuff you carry, the more you need a wide strap to distribute its weight – and the more youíll appreciate the Barney Rustle Blanket’s soft but strong 50mm flamed polypropylene webbing and removable Air Mesh shoulder pad. Complete with QuickFlick™ buckle system, it will go to almost any lengths to ensure the bag sits right where you want it.

DUAL QUICK RELEASE COMPRESSION STRAPS

Particularly paranoid about your personal belongings? Excess-ing your baggage? Bring the two quick release compression straps into play. Exhale. Click. Tighten. Done. What a cinch.

THIRD LEG STABILISER

See that extra little strap thingee dangling off the Barney Rustle Blanket’s shoulder strap? Itís our 11 herbs and spices secret recipe third leg. Clip it under your left arm, then adjust your strap lengths and shoulder pad position. Badabing! The bag is stable and your load is on your back right where it should be.

 

Western Lawn

Like a little more personal space for the personal belongings you can’t carry on your person? Then join yourself at the hip with the particularly schmick Western Lawn.

A no frills, no fuss, less-is-more messenger style baggage buddy, the Western Lawn is large enough to hold an A4/foolscap-sized folder, and organised enough to compartmentalise your carryings on into two external pockets, three internal pockets and a large main cargo space in whatever way takes your fancy.

The water resistant 1,000D outer features a dual velcro-fastened flap for security, and a slashing contrast stripe for show. There’s also a strap trap accessory loop, while the Quick Flick™ buckle lets you adjust the carrying height of the Western Lawn as easily and expeditiously as its name suggests.

FLEXIBLE, ACCESSIBLE SPACE

To ensure you can put lots of stuff in and get to it pronto, we first put in lots of thought. That’s why the large main compartment is also host to a deep, velcro-fastened centre pocket plus left and right deep stuff pockets. And why the Western Lawn also features two additional full depth external stuff pockets.

DUAL VELCRO FLAP FASTENERS

Seal the Western Lawn’s outer flap with its dual oversized injection moulded velcro fasteners and even the most dexterous pocket pickerer will struggle to get their mischievous mitts in unnoticed.

WIDE, ADJUSTABLE LENGTH SHOULDER STRAP

The more stuff you carry, the more you need a wide shoulder strap to distribute its weight – and the more youíll appreciate the Western Lawnís soft but strong 50mm flamed polypropylene webbing. Complete with QuickFlick™ buckle system, it will go to almost any lengths to ensure the bag sits right where you want it.

Delsey Travel Bags – Traveling with a Peace of Mind

Posted by on Nov 14, 2011 in Bags, Fashion, Featured, Travel

Delsey Travel Bags – Traveling with a Peace of Mind

Just when you thought your luggage is safe with your own locks, it is still not.  The easiest way to hack inside your luggage is actually through the zippers.  I have actually tried opening my own luggage using only a ball point ballpen.  Check out this video to see what I mean.  There wouldn’t be any trace of any damage because you just have to zip back the bag and it will return to its natural state.

In that case, you wouldn’t actually know if your bag is hacked in airports and anywhere else!

Especially when people travel because of business, we bring more valuables that could possibly be stolen – eek!

What’s worse than having a thief steal things from your bag is for syndicates to put illegal items without your knowledge.  I have heard real life horror stories about this one and it’s just scary to think that it could happen to me.

Delsey

*off to Boracay

When I was in Boracay, I just took my time to really rest and call it a vacation.

I was there for 5 days and I just enjoyed our nice accommodation at our hotel and watched some Discovery Channel.  They have this show that features on tourists get locked up in a foreign country.  I learned that being locked up abroad could be the most disturbing thing that could ever happen to your life.

Anyway, I’m not scaring you away guys – I’m just making you aware.  When things like that eventually do happen to you, seek help at once, be aware of your surroundings when you are traveling and note suspicious activities.  If you are in a foreign country, find the nearest Philippine Embassy near you.

With that, how far would you go to protect your bag?

Delsey developed Zip Securi Tech to make travel both hassle-free and worry-free.

DelseyDelsey

Zip Securi Tech is a patented zip closure system that will ease your mind of worries and that is forced-open resistant.

Delsey

Delsey luggage technology maintains the lightweight yet durable materials and the addition of the revolutionary zipper does not add to the weight of a Delsey luggage. Though the Delsey zipper looks like the conventional kind, the Zip Securi Tech is consisted of two layers of zipper which is sturdier which deter would-be thieves. In contrast to normal zipper system that can be easily re-zipped up to conceal that it has been illegally opened.

 Delsey

an added security measure, zippers tucked-in in one place so that the thieves can’t manipulate it.

You have the option to leave it at this or add an additional lock in between zippers.

DelseyDelsey

The Zip Securi Tech system is another innovation of Delsey. More than luggage security, it is the consumers’ peace of mind that Delsey value the most. It is the company’s contribution in seeing the world wonderful and worry-free.

Delsey 

Delsey Premium French Luggage is available at all The Travel Club Stores, Duty Free, selected SM Malls, Robinsons, Landmark nationwide.

A House for your Cameras In Transit: Tenba Shoulder Bag

Posted by on Oct 23, 2011 in Bags, Fashion, Featured, Tech Chic

A House for your Cameras In Transit: Tenba Shoulder Bag

 Camera bags may be taken for granted by most photographers – including me.  Sometimes I don’t see a point in investing in one because they’re either too expensive or too bulky for me to carry around.

Sadly, I had to break a DSLR to realize the value of a bag.   I won’t explain further it’s just common sense.  And I didn’t have one before (what was I thinking).  I actually had one but it only fits for one camera.

If you’re like me who is looking to buy another DSLR, or you may already have one and just need the bag then you might want to read further.

I chanced upon a Tenba bag I borrowed for review.

Tenba Camera Bag

It looked really tiny, but it can fit a lot!  This solves my problem of spilling out stuff when I pull out my DSLR from my personal bag (yes, I used to just put it in my jungle bag with all of my other stuff).

The bag is very small.  It’s perfect for me because I don’t like to carry too much.  I have scoliosis and it hurts my back if I cary too much stuff on my shoulders.

 Tenba Camera Bag

The bag is perfect for just one DSLR kit and another lens.  In my case, I use only the kit lens and the 70-300mm zoom for my sports shots.  Sometimes, I also use this lens for portrait or paparazzi shots 😛

 Tenba Camera Bag

 

The bag is well organized.  I know where to put my stuff – wires, extra batteries, SD cards, filters and others.

 Tenba Camera Bag

I also love that it already includes rain protective gear which you can easily pull out from the back pocket.

 Tenba Camera Bag

Did I mention that I love the color green?  It is my favorite color and I love the kryptonite green that enhances my skin tone :) Vain much? maybe!  But there’s nothing wrong with combining tech and fashion 😉

As for the price, it is reasonably valued at P2,250.  Before I didn’t want to invest in any bags because they are expensive.  But I also looked around other brands and this is a very competitive price for its quality.

Zippers look solid, the fabric they used are sturdy but at the same time provides cushion to the camera inside.

ViVi Magazine

ViVi Magazine

I love Japanese fashion and I always appreciate how they express themselves freely when it comes to dressing up.  I went to Hong Kong just to grab myself a copy of Vivi Magazine where it is also being published.  For those of you who don’t know what Vivi magazine is, it is a Japanese fashion magazine published in Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Thailand only.  Target audience is college students and young office ladies.

Even if I don’t understand the Japanese or Chinese text on the magazine, I still enjoy the hip fashion all through out the pages.  And of course, I got a little bit disoriented reading the magazine from right to left @_@

Vivi Magazine HKD $30

Absolutely love this fashion magazine!  You don’t need to understand Japanese much.  Well, I hope they have one in English Smile with tongue out

Marie Claire HKD $35

The main magazine was thich and it had another magazine with it that focused on Gift Ideas.  Mostly luxury gift ideas like jewelry, perfumes and watches @[email protected] They were all in chinese too @_@ so I just looked at the product shots.  The magazine came with a FREE purse!  It looks simple and nice – something that I can definitely use.

Cosmopolitan HKD $40

The Cosmo magazine included 3 magazines inside @_@ The main mag was super thick and they included Crab Tree products (hand lotion)  I love crab tree stuff and was happy to have a freebie lol.  Cosmo focused this time on Beauty Awards where they listed and ranked top and best make-up / beauty products out in the market Smile I think our local issue has this too so be sure to check it out Smile

I couldn’t appreciate the articles though because the test was all in Chinese.

TOTAL HKD $ 105 (charged my Credit card at Php 620.87)

So cheap for all these! with tons of freebies!!!

Anyway, it’s just nice to look at other country’s local magazines.  ‘Till the next travel ^_^
