Charles and Keith is a Singaporean brand that was known for their shoes. I remember buying a pair of shoes donkey years ago while I was working in Marina Square, and being so happy with buying something with my new job.
This was way before my blogging days, but here is a very old post of another pair I got here. Man, I still love those rainbow wedges. Now that I look back, I wish I had gotten 10 pairs of them so I could just replace it when it got damaged.
Anyway! My best friends Juli and Hema got me a bag from Charles and Keith while I was back in Singapore, which was very sweet and thoughtful of them.
They remembered that green is my favourite colour. And there is a detachable side strap so I can sling it over my shoulder. A function which I love, and find very useful as I ride a scooter so it puts my mind at ease that it wont suddenly drop off while I’m on the road.
Inside is roomy enough to pack in my daily essentials like my wallet, mobile phone, keys, camera and whatnots.
In short, I really love my gift. Thanks Juli! Thanks Hema! 🙂
I love my bag so much that I was super careful with it, and made sure that I didn’t handle it too roughly in fear that I could accidentally scratch it. After all, my besties, whom I don’t meet up as often now, gave it to me, so I want to treasure it.
The irony of this story is that I left the bag on the bed for a bit to pray, and Janet the evil cat entered the room and started clawing it!
I broke my prayers when I heard the horrible sound, and when I saw the damage, I was hysterical!
In my anger, I cooked Janet the evil cat into satay. On the flip side, I guess I have a sort of souvenir, so in a way, I can remember more of Singapore, I guess.
In any case, does anyone have any idea how to fix my bag? I doubt a cobbler could do anything about it.

Have you heard of napkin decoupage? They can do it on your bag. It would be beautiful, and it would cover up the scratch marks.
Here’s some videos about it:
and look, i found out that modern decoupage originated from italy! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decoupage
so i think you should be able to find someone to do it or someone who can teach you to do it! advice: practice on an old wallet or something first. lol.
You like sewing right. You can sewed leather or cloth patches to look like this http://i1112.photobucket.com/albums/k490/annchong6/patch_zpsd6c88730.jpg
or add studs http://i1112.photobucket.com/albums/k490/annchong6/rivet-detail-metal-corner-boston-bag_zpsf32d6fde.jpg.
Little India sells this stick on bindis or stick on earings you can paste on clawed area
Oh my. That’s a really spectacular solution. I love it! Thank you so much Ann! You’re awesome! I don’t live in Singapore any more, but there might be something like that in Porta Portese. There are quite a bit of stuff there and it doesn’t cost an arm or leg 🙂
Oooh oooh oooh! That’s a really beautiful idea andI would really like that. Put on a rinaz logo on the bag and make it totally MINE! I’m a little chicken to try that immediately on my bag though, for fear I’ll damage it even more … so yeah, practising on an old wallet would be a good idea .. hehehehe
