The Bag Hag Diaries
The Manila Social Diary
Ingrid Chua-Go is a Filipino-Chinese fashion and lifestyle blogger based in Manila, Philippines. She is known for her fashion blog The Bag Hag Diaries and has a television show of which she is the host, that airs on Star World, a division of Fox International Channels, with the same name. She blogs for The Huffington Post-UK and writes a column for the Philippine Daily Inquirer. She has also been contracted to write stories for brands like Ermenegildo Zegna, as well as for online retailers Luisa Via Roma and Harrods of London. She has likewise written for publications like South China Morning Post, Philippine Tatler Traveller, and Lifestyle Asia.
Ingrid Chua-Go is the daughter of Benjamin Chua, Jr. and Pacita Ong Chua. When she was a child, her mother gave her a Tomy typewriter, which sparked her fascination with writing. This interest was further stimulated by her father during the summers that they would spend in San Francisco. He would assign her books to read over the vacation and required her to write book reports on each one. This developed her writing proficiency at an early age and she considers her father a great influence on her chosen profession.
After graduating from Saint Mary's College with a bachelor's degree in communication arts, Chua-Go worked in broadcast news in Hong Kong, before becoming the managing editor of Metro Weddings Magazine, a top bridal publication in the Philippines. After she left Metro Weddings in 2007, she started blogging full-time.
In 2005, Ingrid Chua-Go started a personal blog to answer a personal question of whether she should buy either a Louis Vuitton bag or a couch for her home. The blog’s main purpose was for her friends to help her decide, but after a number of responses from both friends and other readers, it evolved into The Bag Hag Diaries where bag enthusiasts come to for information regarding the newest trends in bag fashion. The blog has gathered an international following in the world of fashion in Europe, Asia, and the United States.
The Bag Hag Diaries features Chua-Go's commentaries on the latest bag fashions, trends, and styles. Since its inception, it has expanded to include other fashion items like clothes, footwear, and accessories to appeal to a diverse array of interests and readers. The blog also includes some of her collaborations with different fashion houses, institutions, and personalities.
Chua-Go has been a photoblogger/contributor for the Facebook page of Harrods of London, and was a regular contributor for online fashion retail store Luisaviaroma.com. She blogs about fashion for The Huffington Post-UK and writes a column for the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
