She had ordered one for herself a week before leaving for Singapore, from which point we quickly had her laptop sleeve made. We dropped her laptop sleeve at her hotel when she arrived.

After seeing the first, she promptly placed an order for a second one, to be ready for collection when she is leaving South East Asia through Singapore again.
