Get asked that question

It has to been (and safe to say) a crazy week for me, with work pilling up like a truck dumping all its shit over me but what can you do or say? I mean if I was younger, hungrier or more desperate like I was back then, it wouldn't be a problem. But nowadays I am more selective, I guess a little to do with the fact that I am not getting younger and couldn't waste my time on bullshits but whatever. Then there was the flu, cough and a little drama of people resigning and shit. But all in all, it was just another week at work.

But I guess the beauty of being older and seeing more things is that it makes you appreciate the good and filters out the bad and there was interesting happenings here and there and one of it was that I finally got asked the question.

Yes, ladies and gay boys, the question that most gay boys will get asked once or twice in their lifetime. That lifechanging question that requires time and thought to it. A question that asks you to commit to something so big and so amazing that you couldn't help but wondered if you are being suckered to it due to pressure or just plain ovewhelmed. The question being...

"Will you ever buy a Birkin?"

Yup, the question that every fashion loving gay boy will ask and be asked. And that was the first time it was being asked to my face while I was visiting my regular pre-loved shop. I took a deep breath and I didn't know what to answer but it just flows out of my mouth. No. If I even were to own one, it would only be Hac 40. (If you don't know what I am talking about, please click here)

No because I can never afford it. No also because it's not my style. And no, I don't think I will ever be comfortable enough to carry something that cost 80% of a MyVi and most importantly, NO because I don't think I really care for's just that everyone wants it, hardly anyone can afford it and ultimately it has become that 'apple' of desire. If you ask me, it's a nice arm candy and there's no doubt about it's quality, history, prestige and craftmanship but no, it's not me. Yes, if it was free.

So instead, I got this. I know this is not in my plan but it's something to fight the blues.

While this might not be that Birkin or whatever, I am really happy with this find. It's pre-loved and a design that (I believe) is no longer being produced, simple and as a friend told me once, she imagined me more as a Prada toting kind of guy. I have never own any till now.

I am sorry if I am being oblivious but what label is the tote and how much did it cost you?
