My dear friend and partner in movie-crime, Grace Lai, has a job that many would envy – editor of MillionaireAsia magazine. She writes as both her job and passion, and dines with the fulfillment of many adventures traveled. Due to her fast-paced lifestyle (she’s rarely ever around for a slice of sinful cake!), I was intrigued to peek into her handbag. And let’s just say, the bottomless trunk I expected was far from sight – this girl sure travels light!
1) What are the most essential things in your bag you can’t leave home without?
They would be my purse and Vaseline. If you’re wondering, I never put my phone in my bag, it’s always in my hands (unless in a meeting).
1) Describe your daily routine in your busy work schedule.
Wake up mid-day, check and reply all emails, go through Twitter. Go for meetings (if scheduled), attend event launches or press conferences, do interviews (if scheduled) get back to my emails, draft proposals, write. Go for events in the evenings on certain nights. Surf for interesting feature stories at night while watching a movie or two with my partner. Meals are taken in between, as and when
1) If you could invent a bag that would make traveling light that much more convenient, what would it be?
I’d like a sturdy (for example, I find Longchamp a little ‘floppy’), chic and versatile (colour-wise, to match outfits) bag. Compartments in the bag is a must, at least one, I hate digging through my bag when trying to get a namecard for someone or a key to quickly open the door.
1) Do you have a special bag, one that you won’t throw away even when it’s torn and tattered and begging for a much-respected burial?
I love my bags from Topshop. Even though it’s just a high street brand, I’ve always managed to buy a bag from Topshop (the higher end ones), they’re of such good quality, always in style and so great to just pick-up and go.
