I haven’t been busy with anything lately, which leads me to browse the web even more often and finding stuff I don’t really need that gets into my wishlist.
I discovered this brand after watching a Japanese Youtuber who features this brand called Drip on his channel a lot. I love leather products so naturally, I’m attracted to it. I don’t need another wallet since I’m really satisfied with my abrAsus wallet I got a couple of months ago, so I’m eyeing this more as a card holder. But then again, I still have my current card holder doing perfectly fine aside from being a tad too bulky. This PRESSo wallet costs around $100 so it’s on the pricey side. I guess I’m not getting this any time soon haha.
The classic Muji backpack
I feel like almost every Japanese would have seen this backpack or possibly own it. It’s a very basic backpack from Muji with an extra feature of being water repellant. With a very affordable price of $30, it just makes me want to own this and add it to my personal backpack collection. But of course, I have too many bags right now and I don’t even use them since I don’t go out these days. I do have an option of selling my old bags off to someone else or to the secondhand shop but both options doesn’t really bring any merit or good income to cover the purchase, so … No.
I’m a sucker for pure white stuff. And I know sneakers are the first thing that I will get dirty upon receiving. I have three pairs of sneakers lying in my cabinet unused because somehow they’re too tight for me (even though I got my usual size) and it hurts when I use it for too long. I’m actually facing the same dilemma with the backpacks since I have multiple of it but I’m not really sure whether I should sell it off and where to sell it off to. These wool sneakers are $100 a pair and it looks so soft to wear (and also machine washable!). I’ve heard great reviews about it in the past and only rediscovered it recently (of course, from an ad ….).
New Macbook and iPhone
In terms of item condition, my laptop and smartphone are probably the ones that needs to get replaced soon. Both batteries are busted and they can’t live without a charger. Plus, both are above 4 years old which causes applications to run slower and apps to crash more frequently.
I’m waiting for October’s iPhone release to see if it’s worth switching this year or wait for another year again. I’m definitely changing my laptop once I get enough income after starting my job next year. But that’ll be in a couple of months. I know Apple’s trying to release a new Mac with their own chip but I’m really risk adverse so I fear bugs and whatnot coming with the first release. So if I do get a new laptop, it’ll be their current Macbook Pros with the intel chip.
