Whether you are a busy executive on the go or a professional speaker like myself, chances are you are never without a modern mobile device like a laptop, ipad or tablet. In an increasingly wired-up world where we need almost instant access to our presentation slides, documents and information from the web, mobility is the key.

In Singapore’s unpredictable weather where it can be sunny one moment and rainy the very next, the last thing I would want is for my precious mobile device to be subjected to the harsh conditions of the weather by carrying it in my arms. 

The solution: I need a carrier of some sorts. And if I have a choice, I would want to be seen using a carrier that is stylish, practical and water resistant. These are very valid concerns for any layman.

Introducing the Versatilo. As its name suggests, one of its greatest plus points is its versatility. Touted as the all-in-one bag for the modern executive or professional, the PadTabBag impressed me with its super light weight, generous space and clever innovations. It is also the first ever bag design with dedicated compartment for iPads, tablets and notebooks.

When invited to shoot a series of ads for PadTabBag, I experienced first-hand the inner workings of this new entrant. Particularly pleased was I of the laptop compartment as I was able to store my 17” laptop in there snuggly. 


There is also a good play of colours. The classical black exterior (I understand more colours are on the way in the very near future!) is juxtaposed against the bright cheery orange interiors which rely mainly on the velcro-driven safety compartments to keep your stuff secure. And depending on my moods, I can choose to carry it in one of many ways – either as a messenger bag slung across the shoulders, a briefcase or as a backpack (should you choose to unveil the hidden compartment containing the backpack straps).


Always one to testbed new ideas, I was quick to persuade and convince the PadTabBag team that it was more than a bag that meets the eye. Most people would use it hold their tablet or ipad or laptop. But just be a little creative and see what I’ve got? A gym bag!

Yes, by further harnessing the full potential of PadTabBag, it can coolly make the transition from office to gym effortlessly. In fact, I had little difficulty stuffing my entire gym gear (shoes included) inside the bag!

Billed as a full-house event by the organizers, it was truly heartening to see all the seats in the room taken. Plus the fact that some who came a little later had to stand at the back. But whether they came seating or standing, the staff at IBM Singapore was in for a lunchtime treat courtesy of my colour analysis talk. 

A specialized segment in grooming itself, colour analysis seeks to help participants and clients find their best colours to wear. The reasoning is simple – when we wear our best colours, we look younger and more pleasing to the eye. In short, we glow.


Initially apprehensive to volunteer themselves for the demonstration, the apprehension melted away instantaneously when one brave lady stood up and walked to the front to become my first model. And you can guess what happened thereafter…Response was doubly quick and queue numbers had to be given out.


And even after the hour talk was over, some of the ladies lingered on in their seats and wanted to be tested in private, away from the eyes of their colleagues. And of course, I was more than happy to oblige to analyse all of them.
It’s gratifying to see so many happy smiles leaving the room today. And no prizes for guessing what the participants will be doing next – they will be planning their shopping trips in the next few days with similar skintoned colleagues at the newly opened Changi City Point, which is a stone’s throw away :)
