tyre & my birthday falls in the same month and in view of the forthcoming japan trip, the vongs got us something very useful :D
its a chio nice looking 40liter backpack - good for using in japan and it comes with wheels to drag if its too heavy to carry. if you wanna get one too, go Queensway Shopping Center, 'they' say there's a wide selection there.
its a sling bag - perfect for travelling in pretty tiffany blue color. i had wanted to buy this same bag few months ago but a certain fren told me not to get it now but get it in japan. anyway, to cut the long story short, now, i have got it as a present! :D no need to buy it anymore! :D
and the best thing - the vongs got 1 of each for themselves too! this means mr vong & tyre will each carry the same backpack in different color and ms wong & me will each carry the same sling bag in different color. we are going to be the most matching couples going on 'double date'. we just need to be color coordinated during the trip and it will be perfect! ahhahhaahha
