What’s In My Bag



For decade I am a firm believer in messenger bags over backpacks, preferring the tradeoff of easy access over sore shoulder. I have several messenger bag around, but this ForuForm is the one that you can mainly spot on my shoulder for one main reason: the space is limited, so I can’t put too many things in it. It also help that it looks nice, have a pretty good build quality, and quite cheap (I get it for $35 in AliExpress Black Friday).

Macbook Pro Retina 13 – Inch (Early 2015)

This is my main computer, and its pretty darn good. It feels really useful with a lot of connectivity, elegant, and has a serious power. I think its one of the best laptop that ever existed, even better than the current MacBook Pro Touchbar, as I don’t need to bring extra dongle with me.

Iphone 6S

The last iPhone with headphone jack. It heavily cracked as at one point I fell into small canal in the middle of a night. The battery is abysmal now, and can only last for 15 hours. However its still pretty fast and delightful. I wish to keep using this phone until 2019.

Muji Dotted Notebook + Uniball Sigmo

An absolutely deadly duo. Uniball Sigmo pen flow feels supremely controlled but with plenty of freedom to roam free on the paper. And the Muji Dotted Notebook is humble, simple and effective. Both of these item is very reasonably priced – at $2, Uniball Sigmo is practically stealing.

Jabra SMART Bluetooth Headset

My coworker called it Dorky and ridicule me as she think I looks like Deddy Dores, but for some reason I feel really cool when I’m wearing it as I thought it looks like stethoscope. The sound quality is mediocre but the microphone is nice, and bluetooth chip is stable – compared with Anker one as example. I tempted to try AirPod, but can’t stand the looks.

Cable Organizer

To be chaotic at work, you have to be tidy with your tools. I use this leather organiser to hold some miscellaneous things that I need for work. It contain iPhone cable, Micro USB cable, Logitech presenter, 8 GB ADATA flashdisk, and Urban Fun earphone that I use when my Jabra running out of battery.


  • Name Card. I print it from McMurs, a very nice letterpress printer in Yogyakarta.
  • Starbucks Card (horrible coffee, great wifi).
  • Spare key.
  • Mandiri & BCA Token.
  • Finally a Baby Shop member card. Yeah, I’m that kind of dad who sucker for 5% diaper discount. Don’t judge me!

Muji Notebook + Uni-ball Signo UM-151

Muji Notebook + Uni-ball Signo UM-151

I’m not used to make a post about stuff that I own, but I would make exception this time and let the world knows that I utterly fall in love with Muji Dotted Notebook + Uni-ball Signo UM-151.

This two is ridiculously amazing when you pair it together. For the last one week, I use it to write note, brainstorming, sketch a dashboard, poking people eyes, stir a coffee, and move it through different mode of writing and sketching, and this two, pow pow pow! they kill it all with ease and elegance!

PS: Yes, I know the pen looks corny.
