Sometimes, when you’re sipping the warm, thick, liquid gold from your takeaway kopi from your favourite kopitiam drink stall, don’t you just wish that you could get a bigger plastic bag?

No, just us? Aight, you just don’t get it, fam. For us kopi da bao lovers though, here’s how you can pay homage to your favorite non-pretentious beverage: a tote bag that’s shaped in the form of a gigantic plastic bag of milky coffee.

Cleverly done up by design studio wheniwasfour, the Kopi Dabao Bag was recently launched for sale at just $19.90 online and at the physical store along Waterloo Street. Now, you can properly express your love for takeaway kopi with a life-sized bag that looks like one. Imagine the puzzled looks you’ll get when you carry both the bag and the actual kopi da bao on the same side.

If you do get one, try not to put too much stuff inside when you carry it around — those thin straps will undoubtably eat into your shoulders.
