“I Don’t Use Made In China Products”

Every time I hear this from some well-meaning mother/mother-to-be/grand parent, I somehow feel inclined to throw a hissy fit. It just annoys me to no end on how ignorant some people can be.


Sure, you are going to boycott all baby clothing and toys from China. Because there’s probably something in that romper that will break your little one in hives or maybe that toy will short-circuit and explode in your precious’s face. While you are at that, why not you throw out all the stuff you have gotten as gifts or purchased from Mothercare and Carter’s. Don’t forget the Fisher Price and Vtech toys as well.



Yes, sorry to disappoint, but just because you shop at some renowned American or European store. It doesn’t mean that their products originates from the same country too.

So I understand what they are coming from, the fear and need to avoid items made in China. But that would mean throwing away your Iphone too. Hello? It is understandable if you avoid the consumables. Like how even the mainland folks are buying baby formula milk from Hongkong and everywhere else except in their country.


However, when it comes to clothing and toys, surely there isn’t a need to overreact. In fact, it’s pretty much unavoidable, most of these items are manufactured over in China. So remember that before you go off rattling on how your precious little one only wears Carter’s (or whatever other brand) and avoids all clothing from China, because my dear, some of Carter’s clothing are made in China too.


And if you are REALLY that concerned, then please do some research on the brands you purchase. I’m sure seeing tags that read Made in Bangladesh or some other low-cost labour 3rd world country would make you feel more at ease.

2B Alternative Skirt Ready – The initial trial

If you have been shopping in Guardian, you might have noticed a new range of slimming products – 2B slimming products!

They are very popular in Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China with many famous celebrities, beauty editors and bloggers as their users. Such as the famous Ms. Yeung Yi from TVB, Ms. Lily Ho (Ms. Hong Kong) who is also the face of their products.

The product which I chose to try out is the 2B Skirt Ready:

This product is amazing because it not only helps slim down the legs to ensure that it’s skirt ready; it also smoothens the skin and reduces hair growth! Now, that’s such a wonderful 2 in 1 product 😀


To be honest, I’ve only started using it for the first few days so there is no significant results yet. However, just let me share what I think about it. This is how the product looks like; kinda like kaya bread spread. It doesn’t have much scent and goes on easily.



I use this after my shower every night and apply on my entire leg area – from the thigh downwards to the ankles. There is a slight cool sensation after application and the product is absorbed pretty quickly. It does not leave any sticky residue or uncomfortable feeling after using it. In fact, I noticed lesser hair growth on my legs too lately and it could possibly be due to this 2b skirt ready cream!

It has 4-5 stars ratings on the SASA website so I have faith this product to give me the slim thighs and legs I long for without exercising. I will continue to use it and monitor the results… Once, I’m done with both tubs, I will be posting up my final review with more photos too. So do stay tuned for it.

Do check out their website: www.2blife.com

Their products are currently available at Guardian outlets in Singapore.
