Things You Should Have in Your Bag~

Anything could happen anytime and anywhere, so it's best that you be ready for as many things as possible. Sometimes you'd be surprised at how under- or over-equipped a person is. Some items may vary among different people, depending on their own preferences and needs.


THE BASICS
  1. Identity card
  2. Cash
  3. Handphone
  4. Pen and/or pencil
  5. Camera
  6. Sunblock
  7. Painkillers
  8. Medicated oil
  9. Some disinfectant
  10. Water
  11. Panty liners (girls)

THE SHORT TRIPS
You should bring these along if you're just making a short trip to the city for shopping or such:
  1. Another bag to carry your shopping (reduce plastic bag use)
  2. Product / promo vouchers
  3. Membership cards
  4. Loose change

THE LONG DISTANCE TRIPS
Whether by car, train, bus or plane:
  1. Passports or similar documents
  2. Non-messy food
  3. Some form of a self-defense tool in the vehicle
  4. A change of clothes / shoes
  5. Wet wipes
  6. Mild perfume / cologne
  7. Nausea medicine
  8. Candy
  9. Makeup kit (for the more self conscious)*
  10. Sample-sized skin routine products
  11. Moisture mask
  12. Contact lens equipment
  13. Hand cream
  14. Hair styling product (the simple stuff)
  15. Jacket / shawl
  16. Breath mints
  17. Some form of entertainment
  18. Sunglasses
* Each person's makeup kit varies for the other, but these are the bare basics:
  • A white eyeliner pencil can be used for highlighting key points of the face and eyes to reduce the tired look.
  • Some pale pink lipstick / lip and cheek tint to add color to your lips and cheeks.
  • Concealer for the sudden zits and such, as well as the dark circles.
  • If you really do need eyeliner, opt for a dark-colored eye shadow instead of using a pencil / liquid, as using powder would be more forgiving in a moving vehicle.
  • As for mascara, opt for one with a formula that would be quickly rubbed off in case you get some on your skin, but will still resist smudging after drying.

This post does not cater to everyone's needs, and is written based on personal experience. Hope this was helpful~
