Traveling around did not spare me for having an eye on accessories may it be necklace, bracelet, earrings, ring, and a lot more.  Since I was backpacking, I tried to minimize my impulsive shopping (which I don’t usually have except for rare practical items and some irresistible ones).

I am so lucky I get new accessories everywhere I go whether it was from my own pocket or a gift from a friend, or simply an old item remembrance (still considered a gift) from a friend.

Accessories From My Travels

In Singapore, I was lucky to receive a gift from my boss Rick a vintage orange necklace he bought from a cool boutique near our salon (which I found out when I became friends with the Filipina selling it).  I also bought a Murano (popular clear glass in Milan usually expensive made for interior house piece like vases and chandeliers) necklace at the airport for $4 SGD, it’s worth it.

In Cambodia, I bought a bracelet and a necklace both made from Buffalo horn.  A friend once asked me why a buffalo have to die to make me look good? He’s got a point (I think that changed my preference in buying items).

In Vietnam, I bought myself and my friend Trang a magnetic bracelet for each of us.  So we could remember each other wherever we go, some sort of a friendship bracelets.  I chose the magnetic ones among the other bracelets because of some health benefits I heard about it, plus I want to get something different that time as I always get the traditional ones.

The ‘Benefits’ of The Bracelet

It’s not just the great look of the magnetic bracelet that was what made me buy it, it’s also the worth of my money because it was so cheap for a very ‘functional’ accessory.  It costs 10,000 VND ($.50 cents) or a dollar for two! Isn’t it amazing?  Here in the Philippines, they’re making a big deal about the health benefits of it and selling them for around Php400 ($8USD) each.  I recently found that out when the guy next to me while I was lining to renew my public documents asked how much did I got it for?  I told him how much and asked him why?  He told me the price they are selling it here and I was so surprised how marketing can make nothing become something (crazy!).
