About The Blogger

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over a decade now. I work full-time in my dream company while juggling love, life, this cute blog and a blogger's community called The Butterfly Project. People often tell me that I'm a wonder woman, but in reality - if it's something you love, you can do wonders.

When I'm not wondering, I'll be on my computer searching for the next fountain of youth or hunting down a fantastic deal. I'm also a shopaholic, wanderluster, spa enthusiast and proud hipster who loves planning special occasions and surprises for her loved ones.

  • Banana Taipei: You Gotta Own It

    3.25.2012

    do u know what's Banane Taipei?

    There's something yellow, something chic, something that's hitting Asia with tote bags that looked like Birkins (and they have lawsuits to prove that). Hermes, a luxury French brand said these bags are infringing their trademark and copyright. However Banane Taipei denied the accusations and they're still going strong now, making waves in Asia and in the US. Who can turn away from these cute bags? They are relatively cheaper, they're eco-friendly, they're handmade (yes! only 6 bags are produced in an hour), they're created by a group of Taiwanese teenagers who love fashion and found a way to let everyone enjoy a Birkin without paying a hefty price for it. A cult fashion hit.

    And I say before Hermes wins the lawsuit, you better get a Banane Taipei bag now before it's gone.

    Now that you have seen the story of how a bag became a fashion cult hit in Asia (and other countries) you'd be asking me, WHERE CAN I GET ONE TOO? the answer is easy yet tough. Banana Taipei Malaysia sent me pm one day asking me to review the bag. First question in my mind was, what is Banana Taipei? and why people are going crazy over it. I googled and ran through websites, blogs and even online shops selling these bags. Some are originals and some are questionable (beware!). Finally by the end of my research, I have become a Banana Taipei fan. I got to have one. For reasons such as I can't afford a Birkin, I wanted to support the craze, I wanted to own something everyone loves, I wanted to be in the in-crowd showing off my Banana Taipei. Heck even the name is so cute. Whatever the reason is, I wanted one and so I finally receive my bag by courier a few days ago.

     don't have to wait 2-5 months anymore

     OMG! it's a limited edition color

    BANANE TAIPEI loves the idea of combining Taiwan's creative, unique and humorous ideas to create a great product. In the spring of 2010, a group of local designers took upon themselves to convey the spirit of Taiwan, and so BANANE TAIPEI was created. BANANE TAIPEI’s determination to fashion is the perfect combination of environmental protection awareness and respect to the local traditional industries. BANANE TAIPEI products are not only limited to creative performance, but are full of love towards the Earth. 100% HAND MADE, WHOLE NATURAL, NON-TOXIC MATERIALS, 100% EARTH FRIENDLY. 100% MADE IN TAIWAN!

    2. I dunoooooo I'm so torn. When I first heard about the whole hype in Taiwan, I was like those are pretty darn cool, but then the price put me off and I promptly forgot about it. I saw some the other day in Sg Wang (claiming to be authentic) and I was like okay, should I get it? I love the yellow one you chose, though. Nice!

      1. I was also alarmed by the price, but after reading through many posts and lowyat threads, I kinda get why it's price this way. It's very limited in stock (especially colors) and shipping costs involved. How much the Sg Wang one cost? Try to pm the seller Jamie to get a price quotation as my reader. She gives money back guarantee if the bag u buy from her is fake.

        I like yellow too and ... french honey camel is a lovely color too!!! <3

      1. Hi O_O silent reader there!

        Champs Lavender Grey or Tiffany Blue, imho the color u choose should match your personality :D or wardrobe! If you're bringing to work, champs lavender grey is a nice match. Tiffany Blue is very dreamy, like the Tiffany jewelry branding. Which girl are you?

        Delete
      2. waaahh that's my dilemma, i think i'm more of a Tiffany-blue-box-and-white-ribbon kind of girl. but i also happen to be such a sucker for purplish grey colors. wait,i think i'm sort of both type of girl now. haha. i think i'll go for the personality card though: dreamy Tiffanyyy! thank u so muuch Tammy, ur so cool! thanks again:D

        Delete
      3. oh now u're making me want a tiffany blue too T_T so I can match it with my ring.. (but not tiffany brand)
