1. Do you usually carry a bag?

As an e-commerce student, I have to bring my laptop with me, so I carry a laptop bag every day to school. Additionally, since my dorm is far from my classes, I need to bring all of my things so I don’t have to fetch them every time.

2. Do you change your bags often?

I tend to match my bag to my outfit, so I change my bag based on what I’m wearing that day, especially if there’s an event. For example, I’ll use my purse if I’m wearing an evening dress.

3. What kind of bags do you use when traveling?

When I travel abroad, I need to bring my suitcase so I can carry a lot of souvenirs for my friends. I also bring my handbag to hold my phone and passport.

4. Is a bag an ideal gift?

While it may be a bit costly, a bag can be an ideal gift, especially when it’s a style that my friends really like. I often purchase branded bags for my friends.

Yes, when I was younger, I used a backpack. It’s common for primary school students to use backpacks, and it’s rare to see students with trolleys.
