thank this is very useful

What is the difference between a bag and a purse? In the USA I heard say purse instead of bag. Thanks.

I think the purse is small and handy size than the bag.

Hello kalitrates,

That's right -- in the US, people sometimes refer to a bag as a 'purse'. Usually the context will make it clear, but if not you can always ask people.

Yes ofcourse I have some accessories. I got the belt, the scarf and the gloves from my wife.

The only accessory that is special to me is the belt that my godfather gave me on 13th or 12th birthday. The color is white and grey with some silver like effects. Color transitions look very nice. It has a nice metallic beginning and three metal dots on a triangle shaped ending. The material is leather and it's black inside. I wore it until 24 or 25 when it just started to brake, the paint started to fall off a little and three dots also began to fall off piece by piece. But still all my youth is with this belt. :)

New vocabulary 'rucksack', Is it possible to call it 'bag'?

Hello Angga Wiguna,

The word 'bag' can be used very generally and also has more specific meanings. For this reason, in a specific context, you could certainly refer to a rucksack as a bag, but in the general context of accessories, 'bag' generally refers to the kind of bag that many women carry in the UK and some other countries. If you follow the link, you can see some example sentences -- this might be useful for you.
