The year 2012 just started and January just ended few days ago. That means my kids have been schooling for 1 month plus already. The interesting point is my daughters’ school bags cannot be used anymore. Marsya’s bag has torn apart while Alya’s bag has several holes at the bottom.

I’m not surprise with Alya’s case because she is still small (standard 1) but at the same time her load are too heavy. There are too many books that she has to bring to school. As a result she pulls/drags her bag on the floor and tar. We only realized that she pulls her bag on the floor on the 4th week of January. Her bag is not the one with the wheels. Her bags was a gift from my parents for her birthday and Alya wants to used it for school. We don’t know the cost of the bag but it seems to be of good quality.

Marsya’s bag in the other hand is also heavy, thanks to the heavy load of the books. She carry her bag all the while but one of the strap could not cope the weight of the bag. It torn apart and as a result Marysa could not carry her bag properly. Marsya’s bag is quite cheap and we do not expect the bag to last until the end of the year. But, we also did not expect for the bag to last for only 1 month!!! The bag cost was RM25.

This is Alya's new Power Puf bag with tripple wheel. She now can pull/drag her bag easily.

What is the actual case or issue here?


Alya with her new bag and her angry bird purse bag. Looks pretty satisfied.

For us the parents, we think that there are too many books per subject. Just imagine for a single subject, there are text book, activity book and exercise book. The text book and activity book are bigger and thicker. Those books are subsidized by the government. That’s good in one aspect, but in the aspects the students have to carry all these books to school. If there are 6 subject in a day, multiply 3 books with 6 subjects. You know the answer! The cute and tiny students have to carry the bag themselves.

Yes, there are bags that come with wheels, but the school are not flat. There are staircase and there are slops. At some stage the students need to carry the bags and not pull or drag their bag. Poor them.

Our action

We purchased a relatively better and more expensive bag with hope that it can last until the end of the year. If these bags still cannot last till the end of the year, we will allocate some money to purchase cheap bags every month!!! Such thing never occurred to us when we were primary and secondary school students. We will at least use a bag until the end of the year. Some will use the bag for 2 or 3 years.

Let’s hope that this time the bag can be used until they end their schooling this year.

    Sekarang nie semua barang dibuat untuk tak tahan lama. Rugi kata pengeluar kalau buat barang yang tahan lasak. Contoh macam barang elektrik. Kalau dulu jenuh nak rosak. Tapi sekarang…hemm
