Malaysians need to reconsider the way they pack for a post-pandemic holiday

Living out of a suitcase takes on a literal meaning for those who frequently travel for a living. And for some of these folks, their travel bag is more than just a functional companion – it’s also a reflection of their personality and fashion.

Shini Lola, 30, is one such person who believes in having the right travel bag, or bags. The digital marketer has various bags that she would use based on the nature of the trip.

“I have different kinds of bags that go with different occasions. For example, for a one-week overseas trip, I would bring a huge suitcase. A hand-carry travel bag is also a must because you never know how many souvenirs you are going to buy,” she says.

As for shorter getaways, she would opt for either a duffel bag or a smaller suitcase.Shini usually avoids taking bags that are too small as they can’t fit most of her belongings.

“I need a medium-sized bag at least to fit my passport, mobile phone, pocket WiFi and powerbank, among other things,” she says. Shini also carries a bag with several zippers to deter pickpockets.

And since she posts her travel photos on social media, Shini always makes sure that she carries a bag that goes well with her travel outfits.

“In order to be photogenic, of course, the bag needs to be good looking,” she says.
