I still remember the first time I wore a tampon and ever since then, there was no turning back. Sanitary pads have always been more of a hindrance during the most dreaded period of the month. You could not wear a thong with a sanitary pad and hence, you would need to pick clothes that won’t give you a VPL (Visible Panty Line). Similar to the tampon, the menstrual cup gives you a carefree feeling. You do not even feel it at all when inserted correctly.
Unlike the tampon or sanitary pad, the menstrual cup works by collecting the menstrual fluid instead of absorbing it. Menstrual cups have fewer health risks as compared to tampons and are also more environmentally-friendly, especially if you opt for the reusable ones.
This is one of the menstrual cups I’ve tried recently. It kind of looks like an oversized condom and you might be overwhelmed by the size. But no worries, just like the tampon, you won’t feel a thing once it is inserted correctly. Continue reading →
Halloween is exactly a week away and I’m all hyped up! Since a little girl, I’ve always anticipated this time of the year. I guess I’ve grown up watching too much of Channel 5 & westernized kids show such as “Are you afraid of the dark” and “Sesame Street”.
Halloween, which falls on 31st October, is not so much celebrated by the local kids in Singapore. I think only those expats hold private parties in their lush mansions down district 10.
So I grew up lacking the dressing up and Halloween culture in my childhood. This made me determined to relive the ‘lost childhood’ in my teen years. But alas, none of my friends were into this whole dress up idea. It was not until 3 years ago that I finally got to attend my VERY FIRST HALLOWEEN party at Zouk. It’s pathetic I know. And now that I’m nearing the big 30 in a couple of years… I don’t know if the tradition should go on.
