Want Equals Need (Usually in My Case)

I was walking with my friend around the huge bus terminal, Melaka Central when I told him that I wanted to buy a new back pack.
"Do you really need one?" He had seen my backpack at the backseat of my car. It was still in pristine condition, although I had it for almost 5 years. I am a very careful person when it comes to personal belongings (except my car, I do not know why this was an exception).
"I want one," enough said.


We went into some shops and stalls for the perfect back-pack. I got my eyes on a couple of black shoulder bags, but I already have two leather ones (also in very good condition). My want for a new back pack was eroded as the hour plodded by, until we reach our last stop - a sports outlet.


Usually I avoid going into one, as I don't do sports and they normally have none of the things that I like - PSP games, construction boots, toys etc. But this one do sell bags and I saw some interesting patterns on those bags - which were too hip for someone old like me :brow


And I fell in love with a white back pack on display....
"Eh, don't you normally buy stuff in dark or black colour?" my friend interjected when I expressed my desire.
"That's the point. I have so many black stuff, it's so gloomy to be me. Now the inner me wants something in contrast for a start."
"Up to you, your money anyway." And I bought it. :O


I don't really need it. But I know if I didn't buy it then, I'd return back a few days later to get it.


And then my friend returned back to his hometown by express bus, some 500 km to the south for the coming Eid celebration (next Friday). I will blog about it soon enough :h
   Lookie at my Eid's new bag! This is actually a bag for badminton players, but the voices in me head told me to get it! (help me)


p.s The letterings are in bright red. My phone camera makes them dull.

I use my back packs until they are in danger of falling to pieces.

And each seems to be larger than its predecessor for some reason... and no matter how huge it is I always find that I need more space...

Very cool. And it looks lightweight (and as I age the lighter the better)

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Rock Chef; And what glorious stuff you have in your back pack? Do tell :)

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Jenny; It is lightweight. But unfortunately my stuff are many and rather weighty :(

Cheaper than buying everything Apple comes out with. I say, go with your obsession.

Cheers,

Casey

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Casey Freeland; Absolutely. Yet I wanna get myself an IPhone sometime in the future too :)

It's very teenager-ish, I must say. My backpack is in pritine condition too. I use it a lot for my classes as well as my (increasingly frequent) travels.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Aizan; Let's say the inner me doesn't wish to grow up. :)
What classes? The gym sessions?

I really like backpacks. Most places I have lived I would walk to library or to get groceries. The only way to carry stuff is with the strength of the shoulders and back. No tired arms lugging around bags. I like your new backpack, shiny white and bright red letters. Cool.
