The Bag: A hand-me-down Etienne Aigner shoulder strap bag from my mom. I think she bought this bag in the 80’s and it is still in very good condition because my mom takes super good care of her things. I love this bag because, despite the small size, it actually fits a lot of things.

A freebie coin pouch containing all my medical supplies such as Ponstan, Waisan and minyak kayu putih
Art deco mint case that I got from Miami Art Deco District Gift Shop
My passport in a Kate Spade passport cover
NYC subway map. Despite the apps, I still felt safer holding this in my bag as well as it contains more detailed info. Plus, I also treat this as sort of a souvenir
A bag of almonds, half opened. I eat my meals in small portions thus I get hungry often. I didn’t always have time for complete meals so I carried around some snacks in my bag.

My three trusted makeup products all from Make Up For Ever: Aqua Shadow in 30E to brighten up my eyes (also works as a highlighter!), Aqua Lip in 1C for a neutral lips and Rouge Artist in 37 if I feel like changing my lip color to something brighter. I also carry a pocket Make Up For Ever mirror.
