The Hot Pink Backpack Diaries: Yes, this Backpacker is 45% Kikay Too

From the first day I exposed and indulged myself to traveling, I immediately eliminated that Maarte-Pasusyal-Attitude (well, I think I have never been tagged as such). I became 200% more kuripot and/or practical in a sense that I only buy what I badly NEED. Believe me. Then I realized… (*insert before and after flashback transition effect please*)

Life has become simpler and happier, definitely. From killer stilettos, I started to love wearing hiking shoes and Sanuk. From shoulder bags, I started buying 35L-50L mountaineering bags. From night parties to all-night-blogging, charities, and hikes. From luxurious-all-expense-paid-travels to ahmmless than 500-all-in-budget-trips.ย 

But last weekend, I got reminded that there’s still like around hmmm… 45% Kikay in me that I enjoyed checking out abubots in the recent Global Pinoy Bazaar at Rockwell Tent Makati. (Thanks Yabang Pinoy for the free passes!)ย 

Look! I found them all cute!

  1. I always wondered what it's like to be a back packer.. that is one of the luxuries that I can't afford yet because of other priorities. I can't relate with more than half of the items presented in this post except for that spicy garlic which I am very much interested (like you said all Kikay stuff hehe). ๐Ÿ™‚

    @ fyhmd,True. Traveling really changes one's perspective. It makes people more open, receptive, and unattached to material things.Hmmm… I dont really wash my Sanuk a lot. But, it's easy. I wash them with soap bar.

    @ Franc,Yup, you're right! That's also the main reason why I love going to Bazaars because for sure, there you'll see one-of-a-kind stuff… and they're not usually seen in malls

    @ Itin Bique Calvo,The quality is good. For that price of Php795 for a camera bag, its worth it. And it's actually surprising that the leather is of good quality too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @ Green Dei / Daryll,Hmmm… yup, I agree Hodge Podge accessories are really ideal for giveaways. Hmm… better to check their page before Christmas, might find something there.
