Maku Store Singapore’s Hot Pink Sling Bag

Maku Store Singapore

Back when I was working for someone else, I’d always get bags in dull and drab colors, namely, black and brown. It’s been a while since I quit my job in 2011… and my bags and accessories are all getting bolder and brighter in color, just the way I like them. I used to carry an agnes b handbag back when I was working for Adam Khoo. I still have that bag but I probably use it just once a year. I am now in love with bags in vibrant shades that are a delightful pop of color to match any outfit. ๐Ÿ˜€ This sling bag in hot pink from Maku Store Singapore is one of them.

The two clasps in front can give you a little bit of trouble if you are carrying many shopping bags but need to get your ezlink card or wallet out of the bag. ๐Ÿ˜€ Otherwise, it’s great, with an additional zip inside to ensure the bag’s contents do not fall out.

Also, there’s an inner compartment (zipped) in the middle, and another by the side. The usual phone and card slots are in there too. The presence of the inner compartment means I can’t place a slightly more bulky item into the bag, such as a book, for instance. But for everything else, there should be space. I’ve had an umbrella, wallet, phone, Sonny Angel toys, and tissue in the bag.

And it comes with another compartment at the back – can place that ezlink card in here. And of course, that all important sling comes with the bag too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yet Another Maku Store Backpack Shoppers Will Love

Maku Store Singapore

I was in Jakarta over the weekend on a sponsored trip, and I took my new Maku Store backpack with me. It has pretty floral side panels, is lightweight (great for budget travel!) and once again, has an ‘expandable’ feature. ๐Ÿ˜€

When fully extended, the straps on the front of the backpack allow extra height for last minute shopping! I bought lots of snacks in Jakarta and this backpack gave me the extra room for my chips so none were squashed!

This is a great backpack for school and even for the office (there’s a laptop compartment within). Also, the three compartments in front are great for everything from umbrellas (yes, I brought one with me to Jakarta), tissue, your phone, etc.

The usual price for this backpack is S$69.90 but if you show that you are a fan of my facebook page (and Maku Store Singapore’s), then you only have to pay slightly over S$59 (after 15% discount). *Check in-store for T&Cs*

Maku Store: Pretty Pastels & Watches from Trifoglio Italia

The latest addition to my Maku Store collection is a pretty pastel purple backpack. ๐Ÿ˜€

Like all Maku Store items, this backpack has its unique features. Besides the 3 inner compartments, there is a slot at the back for the straps so you can transform the backpack into a handbag. Just carry it by the strap at the top. Really cool.

I’m loving both this backpack and my one-and-only Maku Store wallet in pastel pink and green.

My wallet is a really special limited edition one – only one in Singapore. But don’t fret, if you like pastel shades, there are more pastel-colored wallets in store:

The backpacks are their bestsellers. And I love backpacks because carrying totes always cause shoulder aches. I get even weight distribution with backpacks.

The best part is that Maku Store items usually come in small quantities – about 3 to 5 pieces only. So it is unlikely that you’ll spot someone else on the streets carrying the same bag as you (try carrying a Crumpler bag :P)

Their luggage with that unique denim design is very cool too. And for the guys, check out the special features of some of their bags – ask the sales assistant to recommend the coolest ones to you, like this one I call the Transformer:

Carry it like a normal backpack:

Or as a cross-shoulder bag:

OR stuff the straps into the hidden back compartment and carry the bag like you would a briefcase:

I polled my fans to find out which color they think this clutch looks best in: pink, blue or black. And…

54% chose black

30% chose pink

16% chose blue

And yes, I do agree. Based on my outfit choice that day, black seemed like a better match. Pink is definitely pretty, but I’ll need to choose a matching outfit AND take good care of the clutch to ensure it doesn’t get dirty. ๐Ÿ˜€
