Even in Hong Kong...

Well, I've done it again. Even in Hong Kong, I was able to return a recent purchase. I was surfing through let-trade's website and found a brand new, squeaky clean, Murakami Panda Pochette. I immediately set the wheels in motion if I can get that one instead of the soho backpack. I e-mailed first, then called overseas. NO ANSWER. On my second call (I was running outta time coz' HK time was almost 10pm) Someone answered and said that there was no problem. Phew...I decided to get the pochette instead, due to several reasons. One, it was a Murakami Limited Edition. I know that for the Western aesthetic, the Panda is quite freakish. But for someone like me who grew up with Japanese animation, I think he is adorable especially with his tush showing on the reverse. Second, upon close scrutiny of the pics provided by let-trade, I noticed that the vachetta on the soho had much scuffing and water stains. I prefer the vachetta to age with me, with my own scuffing and stains rather that someone else's. Even though it is a great bag that I know I could use, I went for the brand new pocheetoo. Lastly, did I tell you it was a Murakami?! So here's hoping that I made the right choice and that my little panda would be here by Monday.
