Review on Bamboolite Fitted Cloth Diaper

Note :
On the left side is CM TrueFit Fitted Lite – Velcro Closure
(suitable for daytime use and light-wetter)
On the right side is CM TrueFit Fitted Premium – Snap Closure
(suitable for nightime use, outings and heavy-wetter)

What I Like : Made from bamboo fabric mostly as the name goes by, this cloth diaper is very, very soft to baby’s skin. It’s an answer for solution of nappy rash for some babies.

This is the second brand of fitted type that I try
and the fact it is locally made (manufactured in China), I have to say that it is satisfying. Thumbs up for manufacturer of Bamboolite as making fitted type of cloth diapers available in Malaysia, as locally-made fitted is hard to come by. Absorption wise is good for medium-wetter like my lil tot, Hambali and both have been used for nighttime, approximately 8 to 10 hours, despite only prep washed twice for both types and are soaking wet aftr usage, no leaking and no fussiness from my Hambali and does not disrupt his sleeping because of wetness. It just feels slightly damp to his skin, which is very natural to him as he has been cloth almost his entire life. It is quite generous in size too, ample room for chunky thigh baby like Hambali.

I was a bit skeptical of the form of this diaper as fitted with pocket is quite unlikely for the acceptable form of fitted. Somehow, that’s the beauty of it because you can opt either to put the soaker inside the pocket or just lay in. Only then the microfiber side, do ensure that it does not touching the baby’s skin. In a way you can customise the absorption by how you fold the soaker or to add on booster. The array of colours provided are eye-catching too. It is worth your money definitely.

What I dislike : It takes a bit long to dry both soaker and shell (outer). The setting of size as it is onesize type using the elastic band method may be quite confusing for newbies but on the other hand, without row of snaps for size setting, this cloth diaper has a clean finishing.

Muka cantik


Malam tadi sementara tunggu hubs siapkan notebook baru, me tertengok movie kat 8TV lakonan Charlize Theron. Sepanjang movie ni boleh terlupa yang berlakon tu Charlize Theron. Muka familiar dan me asyik sesangat tengok wajah dia yang cantik sangat ni..simple plain tapi tetap menggoda dan menawan..ralitlah mata me merenung.
Movie pasal sexual harassment satu isu yang sangat taboo pada kebanyakan orang. Tajuk movie North Country..not bad…cerita pergolakan pekerja wanita di lombong satu kawasan yang memang itu kira main income penduduk kat situ. Si Charlize Theron yang berlakon watak Josey bangkit setelah asyik di-harass sexually oleh male colleague dier. Bagus movie ni. Reminds me the good old days biler me aktif kat AWAM, satu NGO yang giat memperjuangkan hak-hak wanita.
Off-topik sikit…

Me dengan mereka yang satu ketika dulu di AWAM. Masa ni kami tengah hold annual Committee Meeting, untuk dua hari kami berkampung kat De Palma Sepang.Year 2003.


International Women’s Day year 2003 punyer celebration. Gantung banner AWAM kat Waterfront Kuching.


Me yang sempat berposing masa gantung mock clothesline ni. Kat clothesline ni kami akan gantung gambar dan keratan suratkhabar kes-kes penderaan kanak-kanak, kes rogol wanita dan kanak-kanak, statistik dan kata-kata perjuangan dan sebagainya. Me masa ni masih lagi dalam ‘Honeymoon Period’ ekekeke..seksa weii, nak berpisah seminggu ngan Cik Abang, siap nangis-nangis rindu bila malam menjelang…

Me tengah sampaikan my module dalam kumpulan kami yang disasarkan khusus untuk golongan belia wanita. Masa ni my topik, ‘Date Rape’, pembentangan dibuat pada siswi Unimas, Sarawak. Geng 3R, WAO pun involve masa celebration ni & kami selalu joint-venture ngan 3R untuk buat workshop sebegini.

Semua tu dalam kenangan..

Loving Minerals – Malaysia’s Leading Online Mineral Make-Up Store

What is mineral make-up?

“Mineral makeup is the latest addition
to an emerging beauty culture dedicated to better living.
Unlike traditional products, mineral makeup,
which is based on a hypoallergenic loose powder
that naturally nourishes the skin,
contains no perfumes, talc, alcohol, dyes, mineral oil or preservatives.
Not surprisingly, dermatologists are pleased.”


That provided information is available in Loving Minerals.com’s website brought to you since October 2008 by individuals who are very passionate about cosmetics. After years of using and testing makeup from drugstore to high-end departmental store brands, they stumbled upon the booming trend from USA that is mineral makeup, and fell in love almost immediately!

Stocked only the safest and most luxurious mineral cosmetics at unbelievably low prices, they searched the world for the most recommended mineral cosmetic brands, and all their products have been tried and tested repeatedly to suit Asian skin tones, skin types and our humid weather perfectly.

What are the benefits of using Mineral Makeup?

It is good for sensitive skin, it does’nt feel like a mask and contain ingredients that are good for skin. If you have fine lines or crow’s feet, traditional makeup can cake in those places, often creating an illusion of deeper lines. Minerals create real health and a glow like we had in our teens and 20s through essential vitamins, antioxidants and ingredients that actually hydrate the skin and conceal wrinkles. The old makeup phrase “putting on your face” may soon be obsolete. Mineral makeup can look and feel like you’re wearing nothing at all, like a silky top layer of your very own skin. In short, you look like you have great skin!

So what is available at Loving Minerals.com?

What is The Green Pocket Laundry Ball?

Many, many, many years ago, our great great grandmothers & mothers used natural things found from nature to clean clothes. That was before the existence of detergent.

It is back. People are consuming and utilising the next best thing by nature by opting more to naturally made products or the most organic & safest to your environment.

How The Green Pocket (TGP) Laundry Ball works?


TGP generates
strong infrared rays wavelength to break the bond between molecules, enabling the individual water molecules to penetrate into the fabric. The water is also highly charged with negative ions. The dirt, which is positively charged, is attracted to the individual water molecules and is flushed out with the water during the rinse cycle.

Why you must consider switching to TGP?

  • Wash Clothes without using detergent

There is no remaining chemical detergent residue in the cloth and fibre; therefore it does not cause any skin problem for those who may be allergic or irritated. Natural pH 6.8 is good for your skin as normal detergent pH13 is harmful to body.

  • Good for clothes fabric

It protects the oxidation and discoloration of fabric caused by chlorine in the city water and helps to retain the elasticity of fabric. As TGP contains antibiotic agents; it eliminates the mould, pathogenic organisms, and unpleasant odours, while it activates water and increases the cleaning power. So, it is not necessary to add bleaching agents, fabric softeners and other washing additives. Plus, you will experience tangle-free laundry.

  • Cost saving

Save water and save on cleaning agents. TGP last 3 years, with usage once a day, estimated lasted for 1000 wash. Calculate how much you save by comparing the cost of detergent, fabric softener, bleach and others times 3 years.

  • Eco-friendly

Made from biodegradeble material, it is harmless to the environment.
