Keep GUESS-ing And You GUESS This!

I felt "heartpain" when I opened up the GUESS box and found that the wallet inside has "deteriorated" to such an extent that it couldn't be used anymore...
On the surface it was still very nice... I love it very much... Aaron bought it for me when he was in Italy during his internship training.  Er.... that was...more than two years ago... In fact he bought two handbags and one wallet for me, the GUESS handbag was utilized to the fullest... also Gone Case now... but this wallet was kept inside the drawer till yesterday.....

The problem with me is that I like to keep things... keep till come-what-may... and look what keeping has done to my GUESS... sigh...
when I opened the wallet... I was shocked...
the leather has worn out....
patches of white and it was starting to peel 
when I rubbed on it....
There goes my GUESS wallet...
One lesson learnt... Never ever KEEP material possessions anymore....
They are meant to be Utilized and not Kept to "produce eggs!"


  1. That white stuff in fungusmould, which means the leather was damp/kept in a damp place. Sorry to see it that way.

  2. It's a mold. Oh sorry about your Guess wallet. This makes me want to dig in my stuff and check if there's something hidden.

    Hope you get a new one soon.

  3. kash: i kept it in my drawer.. thought i wanted to take it out and use.. but too bad... it has become this way.. sigh..

    marms: no wonder it peels off...

  4. We can learn from this...even yesterday I learnt something very good, but it cost we too!Lol...

  5. Birds of the same feather flocks together. Just recently I dug out my Polo wallet which my daughter bought for me 2-3 years ago and the condition, more or less like yours. Shake hands, hahahaha!!!...

  6. Aiyor...branded, should not be like that leh? You got cheated, they sold you imitation eh?

  7. medie: thim suen??

    kash: tell me what it is.. by the way, i cannot locate your blog url..

    irene: next time our kids wont buy anything for us.. hahaha...

    stp: soft leather like this leh.. if keep too long without proper ventilation..

  8. maybe it's not the original one..

  9. yes that is why I always told my mum that whatever you buy must start using at once.. don't keep it.. the more you use the cheaper it is cost...

  10. wenn: not sure... bought in Italy Factory Outlet..

    simpleperson: I must remember that too..

    xue: sayang..

  11. i'm not about wallets but i know keeping leather shoes for sometime and not wearing it will also have this problem.

  12. Lol, I don't have blog, but enjoy reading everybody elses. Well, yesterday I learnt if a brand new laptop is only €100, its too good to be true, here the gypsy people are notorious for cheating people. He showed me the laptop, I checked it, everything ok, I got out of his car, took out money to pay and somehow he managed to swap bags. I ended up with a laptop bag with catalogue books in it! I'm still raging about it! But I've learned my lesson.

  13. Those leather material must not be kept too long. Nvm...get another one during ur trip to US..hehehehe

  14. im alos into keeping things too gift that i receive even some letters and trashes with memories haha i have kinda poor memory so i intend to keep thing to remind me how wonderful life is

  15. Poor thing. Really very sayang. We can all learn something from this.

  16. Just to add, if anyone wants to store things like this, it would be advisable to use desiccant crystals. Normally they come in small sachets and all you do is put in 1 or 2 together with the item you want to keep away.

  17. Hello...due to time constraint, I cannot reply individually..pls forgive me..
    Kash, your case of being conned, it is quite common over here too.. things that are too good to be true, one has to be careful...
    by the way, thanks for the info, i think i know what those crystals things are.. like those being put in tablet bottles...

  18. I have been conned,lol...yes those are the crystals.

  19. Oh yes I have had the same experience before. So now I never keep things. After buy, must use! : )

  20. Nothing can't be done about this? poor thing.. :(

  21. never keep things too long..same goes to shoes.

    Remember I bought a pair of nice high heel shoe just before I knew I was pregnant and since then, it was nicely kept in the store until two years later (after I delivered my boy), it turned out to be exactly the same like your purse plus a broken heel. :(

  22. aiseh, you should have used it :( poor you. Nvm, all the more reason to head out and get a NEW one!! haha

  23. Oh dear, I feel painful for u. Don't u put silica gel with it.

    I've a huge collection of designer bags like LV, Chanel & Dior etc. I keep them all in their original dustbags & boxes with silica gel. Some been there for more than 10yrs but condition are still good.

    U should also take them out to air if u're not using them. Hope these tips help...

  24. Ehm ehm...bRo I l!Ke yOuR gUEsS bOx...

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
