Hi Honey & Butter, thank you.. :) Have you tried cloth pad before? If not would like to send you one. I too use handkerchief...

Hi Vintage Coconut, thank you. :) How was your trial with cloth pad? :)

Hi NoEn,
Yeah.. it took me awhile to get used to bring shopping bag.. now I keep some bags in my car, 1 in my handbag.. make it easier.. as sometimes our shopping is not planned.. Good luck to your tanam sayur.. it is quite fun.

Hi Myluv-Sylvia,
Very happy to see another lady switching to cloth.. Will certainly post you a liner for you to try out..

Honey & Butter said...

Anic, I haven't tried any cloth pad before.. I'm looking fwd to experience it ♥

btw, i prefer to use shopping bag rather than carrying things in plastic bag. Because shopping bags are prettier! Haha
