My Bathroom Is Never The Same Again... Thanks To Kleenex® Ultra Soft Fresh

~ Posted on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 12:39 AM ~

I received a peculiar box yesterday with a big labelling at the opening, telling me to sniff before I open. At the first whiff, I can smell a nice floral scent and when I opened up the box and looked at the contents, I was pleasantly surprised at what's inside.

So ladies and gentlemen, read on to find out why my bathroom will never be the same again, all thanks to "Kleenex® Ultra Soft Fresh":

Have I mentioned how thrilled I am to be able to review the first ever natural fresh scented toilet paper in Malaysia made by Kleenex, a super well-known facial tissue brand in the world?!

Now back to my review, firstly the scent is so refreshing and relaxing, not at all overwhelming like some fragrant products we put in our bathroom.

FYI, the criteria we looked at when we buy toilet papers are: it must be thick (3 ply), compact, soft to the touch and the distance between the toilet roll in the centre to the first layer of the toilet paper must be thick (more quantity!). All are fulfilled by the "Kleenex® Ultra Soft Fresh"!

My 3 years old boy can't resist and started tearing the toilet paper (boys!) and before I could stopped him from destroying and wasting the toilet paper, I watched his face turned from mischief into frustration and finally wonder.

Mischief because yes, he planned to destroy the toilet paper,

Frustration because he couldn't tear it despite several attempts (these 3 plys are really strong!) and

Wonder when he realised how strong the toilet papers are!

I also asked him to smell the toilet paper and he went 'Hmm.. nice!' - words from innocent child! Better believe it!

So yes, I have proceeded to distribute the toilet rolls I received for my review, 1 given to my MIL, 1 to my hubby which he put in his office toilet and 1 which I put in our bathroom. Within an hour or so (sorry didn't monitor the exact time), my bathroom smells soooooooooooooooooooooo nice!

I keep finding excuses to use the bathroom now just to enjoy the nice aromatic scent... ahhhhhhhh.... and of course, they are very soft to the touch! What a pleasant experience to be able to review these awesome products!

Virgin Coconut Oil

~ Posted on Monday, September 10, 2012 at 7:05 AM ~

Started taking virgin coconut oil (VCO) on the 7th Sept 2012. Have been reading quite a number of feedback by mothers in a breastfeeding group I used to join in and decided to buy one bottle of it when I made my first purchase via iHerb.

You can Google yourself on the benefits on VCO if you want to know more. The first time I took it, it just stays in my mouth, I dare not move at all and just let the oil remain in my mouth. I was hesitating, should I gargle? Swirl it around my mouth? Use my tongue and flick it something? In the end, I just swallowed it in a gulp. The aftertaste? A sweet smelling and tasting oil in my mouth. Bearable. No gagging reflex which I feared. OK, one giant step for me.

I'm currently taking 1 tablespoon right after my breakfast. Hopefully can see some (well, any!) results.

Do you take VCO? What benefits do you noticed?

Have You Heard of Bacterial Vaginosis?

~ Posted on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 at 4:19 PM ~

Oh wow... I learned something new today!

Bacterial Vaginosis.

The term bacterial vaginosis actually means an infection caused by an imbalance pH levels in our vagina. Yup, down there. I know, I know, when it comes to topics like this, most often we Asian women goes 'hush, hush' and sheepishly change the topic or remains quiet... but really, we should find out more on this and be equipped with the knowledge so that we don't end up getting it.

I mean, look at the image below. Up until I write this post, I have no idea what this is all about! And after reading about it and find out more on the symptoms, causes and what can be done to prevent it, I just have to share this information out to all my sisters out there!

As I was reading through the symptoms of this infection, I remembered these are the few things that I was told to look out for when I was pregnant. Unpleasant ‘fishy’ odour, abnormal discharge and discomfort down there, all these are the symptoms to be on the look out for. And I was surprised too when I read that this infection is not caused by poor hygiene. I mean, the first thing that came to my mind was 'must be not clean enough that's why causes all this infection!'. You should really read up on this infection to know more, don't just trust my words in this post.

In summary, this is an easy to prevent infection if only we know about it and prepared ourselves against it. So please for the sake of your health, read up on this!
