Summer is here! What? Don't come telling me there's no summer in Malaysia. Who am I joking? It's panas dan lembap sepanjang tahun in Malaysia, so practically we have summer all year round... thus, this post is actually relevant whenever you read it!

Anyway, recently I have a lot of friends who have been travelling. Some told me about their plans to travel in the coming weeks and one of them actually asked me to suggest on what to bring along for their trip. The first thing that came to my mind was - a camera of course! Then, I also reminded her to bring along her powerbank, which to my horror she told me she doesn't have! Gosh, how does one live without a powerbank nowadays? So, anyway I thought about the list of things I want to bring as well because I'm going for a short getaway myself. And here are the top 5 things I will want to get to make the travelling experience even better!

Clockwise from top:
1. Pineng 10000mAh Powerbank (link)
2. Checkered Pim Sole Loafers (link)
3. Corey Bamboo Wayfarer Leopard Frame with UV400 Brown Lens (link)
4. Golla iPad Mini Envelope (link)
5. Red British Envelope Retro Backpack (link

1. Pineng 10000mAh Powerbank (RM49.98)
Well, I currently already have a powerbank of my own but then my siblings don't have one themselves. I figure when travelling, we won't really have time to charge our phones and stuff so gettng another powerbank would be really handy! 10000mAh will be sufficient for at least 3-4 charges so that could last my phone at least 1-2 days, which is really really important being a social media freak. I have to constantly check on my FB and Insta, y'know?

2. Checkered Pim Sole Loafers (RM89.00)
When travelling, the most important aspect is about the walking. Most likely I won't be sitting around to play with my phone right? So I really think that it's really important to get a pair of comfortable shoes that I can walk for hours and not feel any kind of pain or discomfort. I bet the Checkered Pim Sole Loafers will be such a good pair of shoes that I will wear almost everyday just because it's so comfortable!

3. Corey Bamboo Wayfarer Leopard Frame with UV400 Brown Lens (RM50.00)
Another essential when travelling is of course to get a pair of good sunglasses! The Corey Bamboo Wayfarer Leopard Frame with UV400 Brown Lens is not only stylish and comfortable (being so light-weighted) but it also provides UV protection. That's super awesome. Now I can look good in shades, take awesome selfies and not worry about getting harmed by UV rays. Cool.

4. Golla iPad Mini Envelope (RM99.00)
It's time to get a nice and brand new little clothing for the iPad Mini at home so that I can bring it out when travelling, and finally I don't have to be ashamed of the current clothing that it's in now (a rather sad state actually). I really like the sleek design and even though it's just synthetic leather, I think it's good enough to last a long time. If I wanna travel in style, I gotta pamper my little gadget too, right?

5. Red British Envelope Retro Backpack (RM89.00)
I have been searching high and low for a new backpack for the last few months but couldn't let myself to buy a new one for myself because I didn't have any real reasons to buy another bag. But then! If I want to go travel, I'm pretty sure this backpack will serve me well being lightweight and plus it looks so good! It can even fit a laptop but of course I'm not gonna bring any when I'm going to travel but that means I have ample space to stuffs like water bottle and others.

So there you have it. My top 5 travel essentials to get this summer and it's all under RM100! What do you bring when you travel or what do you want to get to enhance your travelling experiences? Share with me!
