Collecting paper bags doesn’t sound so bizarre actually but if you’ve been collecting ‘em for nearly 2 decades like me and have no idea what to do with ‘em besides keeping ‘em eons to come then it is BIZARRE.
My whole paper bags + plastic bags collection are here. Maybe this picture didn’t do the justice.
I especially love my Mun Loong paper bags. Mun Loong was one of KL’s most prominent department stores in the late 80s to early 90s. Every season, they’ll have different design of paper bags to woo us. And every time, I’d hope my mom will buy a dress from Mun Loong so that I can have their beautiful paper bags.
These are some of my favourite paper bags from Mun Loong.
I review my paper bags collection once every few years. Actually the number of paper bags has remained quite static. I keep some, I throw some and I add some. What to do? I only have one small area in my cupboard to keep them.
Paper bags with Christmas theme from Isetan, Tangs and Yaohan.
So does anyone of you have this same peculiar hobby – collecting paper bags?
