Whoop.. here comes another story of preparing ourselves for a Flight! have you been on a plane, you know that it could be a hassle in putting/getting our stuffs due to space limitation. You don’t want to obstruct people but at the same time you need sometime to get yourself organised. Opening up your cabin bag then tossing your stuffs to your seat before putting it inside the overhead compartment is a hassle.
After couple of times, I realised that I kept on throwing out the same items. So, one day I asked myself, “why don’t I get a pouch for these items?” Then the journey began. It wasn’t that smooth at first but I got used to it..now, packing my things is easier as I just need to put this pouch in my cabin bag. Let’s Un-box it here.. 😀
It’s obvious that you need this. Bring it with you and don’t leave it behind. If you are an alien like me, don’t forget your ‘alien ID’ if you have one.
It comes handy especially when you need to fill in any arrival card or make some scratches regarding your travelling plan.
3. Data Cable
You will need it to charge your phone/power bank.
4. Power Bank
Imagine…When your flight doesn’t have a power charge. You will need it to ensure your phone has enough battery. Ensure that the capacity is within the allowable limit and written clearly on the body. Some countries are strict on this rule. You don’t wanna have it confiscated. Anyway, this item can’t go to your baggage you need to put it on your cabin bag.
This is for your in-flight entertainment. Could be used for your own device or even the in-flight screen.
6. Pin / Needle like
Why on earth Triana? Well, It’s for opening my phone’s sim card tray. 😀 as you could see in the pic i have some local sim cards and I need this so that i could manage my cards especially when I come back to the home country. Other than that, it could also be used for emergency case such as wardrobe malfunction. Speaking of broken zipper..maybe. 😛 for me, i am wearing hijab so this could be my hidden stash.
7. Face Mask
The air is super dry up there. I found that by wearing this, it ease my dry-nose / sore throat case. Another plus side : it covers my mouth when I fall asleep and unable to control my face muscle. You know how unappealing we could be during our sleep. Nowadays i see more and more people wearing this during flight. You are not alone. I am with you.
You could have either wet or dry. I just happened to have both during the time I captured the photo.
For you who’s as clumsy as me. It’ll be great to have some first aid kit.
10. Small Padlock
Guilty as charge. This is not for in flight. You may need this when you travel on a group or if you have additional baggage after your trip or.. if you stay in a hostel/dorm. They will provide you a cabinet to put your things. Some might come without a lock. It’s always good to have one for security measure. I put it inside my pouch ’cause i have the tendency to lose small items. Putting it inside the pouch eliminate that case.
Those are couple of items that i had with me on one of my recent flight. I know that we are talking about things inside a pouch. However, I would like to credit the pouch itself. I have been with this baby for years and hoping for years to come too. If i may..i would like to recommend you to get the similar pouch as mine. It has 3 compartments with zipper and about the right size. Though it will be unusual for guys to bring this type. You could go with fancier small leather bag. maybe. 😀
Hope this writing could give you some ideas on what to pack for your journey! a bit of up close photo of my pouch below! Wish you were there so that someone could take a better pic of my ‘treasure’. i had too much time to kill. Cheers! 😉
