Handbag for guys

The other day, colleagues and I were discussing about men carrying handbag/purse for their girlfriend/wife (well, something like that). Actually before this, I read about the similar topic posted by a gal friend of mine in her FB status, which triggers alot of comments ;)

I know there're guys who will carry handbag for their partner when going shopping, and some won't. And some people actually say this act is too 'sissy' for a guy. To me, if the guy is helping the partner to carry for a while while she's busy taking care of the kids/busy browsing for something/going to the ladies, I think it's acceptable. But if carry all the way throughout the whole outing, then I guess it's not too appropriate. Anyway all these are just my personal opinion and no offend to anybody.

What do you think? And I know I have male readers, your opinions are much appreciated (just for the sake of sharing)


  1. erm, i've seen one of my colleague , his hubby helps her to carry her handbag whenever go outing.. her reason is, u wont see men kena snatched bag der... thats why she prefers her hubby helps her..
    and i've got 2 male customers, they love to bring handbag, i mean nowadays u can see handbag for unisex kan, and so coincidence both of them also so sissy...hehehe

  2. Nowadays, if men carry handbag, snatch theif also attack lorr!

  3. LOL! I won't mind my husband carry my bag whenever I shop, and I can definitely shop for more, muahahah!

  4. Hi Hayley, there are 2 things you won't see me carrying, a lady's handbag, for that matter one time men having those bags....and an umbrella, ha ha.
    Unless if wife hands busy.
    Have a nice day.

  5. hi Hayley,
    I think there is nothing wrong to help your wife or girl friend to carry their handbag while shopping or even at function, when they need to go to the ladies. I have carry my wife 's bag on a number of occasion, and not feel weird about it. However you wont see me carry a handbag(so call men handbag), which I see some men carried.

  6. I want a "helper" to carry my handbag, too. But when give a deep thought, I do not prefer my man to carry it. It makes him look less macho, hahaha!

  7. I normally carry a sling bag so no need for my man to help. I don't have any comment, for those whose their men carry handbags for them, I'll say they're lucky to have the free-labor, hehehe :-)


  8. haha he loooks a little wierd carrying the ladies handbag, but sometimes when i get tired i tend to ask my bf to carry my bag as well!

  9. I am the guy who is ok to carry my lovely wife's bag,, no problem at all,, and i dont see any one being sissy by doing that...........correct or not?

  10. my hubby just helped to carry my bag when I busy browsing for something or tired from work! soon he wont help me carry anymore coz he gotta carry bb's bag...muahaha!

  11. My hubby will only help me to carry my handbag if my two hands are occupied and also I must be around about next to him when he's helping me to carry. But if I go to the toilet and ask him to help carry for me, then he won't. His reason? Not the sissy reason. His reason is he's afraid other people might think he curi ambil people's handbag!

  12. i think it's good that men help their wives/girlfriend to carry their bags if they are busy. however, i don't think i like the idea of men having their own handbags. if they look like a's ok..cos they need to carry their lappie and etc. but a handbag like a woman is a no-no :D

  13. It is not appropriated to let men carry women's handbags, unless the women is pregnant and the bag is too heavy. That's it.

  14. Hello folks, thanks so much for the comments! Really appreciate the sharing! I understand everybody has their own thinking on this topic ^^
    Wyson, but these days, it doesn't matter what gender, criminals are everywhere, so do ask your colleague to be careful too!

  15. My husband sometimes help me carry my handbag. I don't think it's sissy or anything.

  16. Just like you, if the wife/girlfriend's hand are occupied, then men carrying on behalf for a while is ok la. If men carrying those man-handbag....I also felt them very sissy. hehe....just my 2 cents

  17. To Mummy Gwen and mNhL, thanks for the comment! Actually in the end I think there's no right or wrong on this, just depends on how we see it... =)

  18. I'm neutral on this too. It's really up to the individual, if the wife insists and if the man feels comfortable doing it, why not? As for me, I rarely ask my hubby to carry my bag but on many occasions, he's "forced" to carry Chloe's kiddy/girlie butterfly bag :p

  19. Heheh...sometimes I carry my wife's handbag cause she's attending our son. No harm long as there's a reason to it.

  20. To Chloe Ruoyi and Willie, thanks for the comment!!

  21. If the bag is heavy or like u mention if the gal is busy doing something, then it is ok.

    To me handbag is an accessory, and I wouldn't want my man to carry something inappropriate jus for the sake of it. There are many ways to prove he is a gentleman and he cares, and this is definitely not one of them.

  22. This reminds me of Joey in Friends!! Hahah!!

  23. YT, agree with what you said ;)

    Petite Cherie, oh really? haha :D

  24. I m OK ... my hub do carry my handbag when i m busy handle the 2 kids ....but my bag, the bag that i use for outing with my kids.. not those ladylike wan ... more casual .no blink blink and flower. so is OK wan ... hahhaha

  25. Anggie's Journal, I understand, something more casual and 'unisex' look ^^

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
