I’m now officially Crumpler-fied

  

Long long time ago, I heard my bro say that he wanted to buy a bag.

A laptop bag, he said. To store and protect his laptop wherever he went.

At that time, my firm belief was to use the bags that CAME WITH the laptop, i.e. if you bought a Dell laptop, you get a Dell bag. Or when you buy a Sony laptop, you get a Sony bag.

That means Free lah. I’m a cheapo like that :D

And then I saw bro’s bag…

Crumpler ‘The Moderate Embarrassment’.

 

Then I saw his 2nd bag…Crumpler bags039

Crumpler ‘The Hee-goer’.

For such a silly name it sure looks good for a bag, and it’s pretty strong too.

And I have this Mount KK trip that’s coming up in less than 2 weeks time, and I look for my bags….IMG_3998 copy copy

For a minute, try to ignore the silly look on my face and the pose, but look at the bags. One is an Uncle-type camera bag, and the other, a small day-sack (not obvious), that I brought up Gunung Datuk with Desmond in February. One’s on my back, and the other hangs by my side.

 

I remember that the climb was all fine, until the part where I had to climb up a ladder while squeezing through a small crack between two rocks.

 

I got stuck. Something in my mind told me that it’s terribly not normal that I should get stuck. I mean, the fatter Malay aunties before me got through, so I bloody should too! Imagine me with a slightly distressed look on my face..while the fatty (and heavier) aunties look down at me with the wtf face haha.

Red arrow : marks the Stuck Point. Even Desmond’s got that smirk on his face as if he already knew I was gona get stuck. The bugger.

 

Anyway, it was the camera bag that was hanging by the side that got me stuck. Very bad idea lah, to carry two bags.

 

So, I’m determined not to let it happen again. So, like my previous post said, today I went to KLCC with EGo to the one and only Crumpler shop in Malaysia.

The Customary Barge that stores Laptop + Camera + other stuff. A bit big but I guess that’s how backpacks would look. Right? ……Right? ^^

 

Anyway, I’m a very happy man now…new toy yeah!

 

I was so happy that I decided to go binge-eating with EGo and Leowazza at Jln Alor coz I didn’t get enough at Penang. Tonight’s was Satisfying as hell :D

Crumpler is less comfortable if carry on a much longer period. I'd probably have suggested Lowepro instead. But nevermind, you can always buy another one :-D
