I remember using one back when I was a kid for my tuition classes, and it was for my own nolstagic memories that I wanted one again. in fact it was one of the standard pre-requisite bag for one of the schools in kch. Brought back a lot of memories for me. And i had visions of Peanut bringing it to her kindy and what not. Vision only la, it's not that practical for her to bring to Kindy in reality. For one, it's bigger than her body lol.
So when I went back to Kuching and I saw a shop (selling stationeries) selling this rattan basket for only RM36, I didn't even have to think twice.
I have been using it everyday to bring my stuff up and down the house.
It's also useful when we go out with the kids. Just need to put it in the car and I can see everything at a glance. No need to rummage through my bags and find their bottles, snacks, etc.
My mum, who saw the basket, jumped onto the rattan bandwagon as well and decided one basket is just not enough for me. Once I was back in KL, she kept asking me whether I need anymore baskets i.e. " do you need a bigger size, or maybe a smaller size, one for Peanut, one for BabyD? come on, you can put them in your cars etc". She can't take no for an answer and that's how I ended up with two more O_O (she got them from a shop selling baby stuff so i guess i'm on the right track? haha). I don't know who's a bigger shopaholic. Me or her. She even got someone to sew inserts for the baskets. bless her!!!
Baskets of varying sizes.
