Bag: D-Lux Laptop Racing Stripe Messenger 2013 (S)
What can’t you live without? My motorbike
What’s the most surprising thing you carry? A cup of coffee. No, kidding. It’s on the left-below; Sasando Hotel room key. Accidentally I brought it from Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, last year – I was in a hurry to catch my flight back to Jakarta. And then I consider it as a souvenir. :D
In my bag: Measuring tape, laptop + charger, external hardrive, photobooks, cutter knife + refill, keys, smartphone, ipod, pen, pencil, red marker, earphone, cable data, notebook, envelope (it’s a mouse pad to me), coffee sachets, tethering cable, hotel keys, and a wallet.

What can’t you live without? My bag of charging cables.
What’s the most surprising thing you carry? Ants. Seriously, left my bag where I shouldn’t have and it was overrun. I’m still finding tiny little any corpses (and a few tough survivors).

What’s the most surprising thing you carry? I guess it is a little odd that I carry two deodorants. But they are still both going back in my bag!
