Diapers Have Come In!

I was surfing online for some lego sets. I know they cost a lot of money so I was sort of content window shopping, or whatever the equivalent term is for online shopping. I mean, just look at the Harry Potter set they just released, if it was half the price I would have bought it, it is so good!

Anyway, I digressed, and searched for some vinatge diapers. Guess what! They were selling some old plastic-backed Tena Slip Supers at a huge discount! So I bought them. And one thing led to another and I had bought several other types as well as well.

To complete the group I went over to ABDL Marketplace and bought some Rearz and Crinklz samples as well. And then I waited, for the entire lot to be mailed over.

I used a postal forwarder to consolidate all the packages and mail it to me in Singapore. I opted to pick it up from one of their self-collect points to avoid delivery to my home or hostel. So late at night, when the coast was empty I made my way to the collection point.

I must admit that I underestimated the space 45 diapers took up. They came in several packages and I couldn’t fit all of them in my bag. which meant that I had to hand carry the 3 largest ones back to my hostel on the shuttle bus. I wasn’t too worried. But I did wonder what they might have thought if they knew what was inside.

Anyway I was excited. I made my way back to my hall, showered and put on my nightly cloth-backed Tena Slip Super, and began to open my packages as if Christmas came early.

Spot Check!

My dad, till this day does not know about my current dips. I’ve written about his stance before, but I keep on bouncing back, sometimes underneath his nose.

Literally, cos his sense of smell is very good, while mine is nonexistent due to some illness many years ago.

So as this current academic year started in August, I began moving my stuff back into my hostel. I explained in my previous post that I took pains to plan the schedule and route just so that I could go get my diaper supply for the semester. That also meant that I could not get anyone to help me with moving in.

Unfortunately, I had left out one thing. My mini-fridge was in my dad’s office and in my rush last week I had to choose between either the fridge or the diapers. I chose the dips of course.

But my dad being my dad, decided to come deliver the fridge to me at the end of the first week! I tried to talk him out of it, said that I had some coupons for a startup moving company and stuff like that. But being the Asian Tiger Dad that he is he insisted on bringing it to me ‘for free’ and to help me carry it up the stairs.

My Dad was coming to my hostel. I had 1 hour to prepare.

This was the first time he was actually coming into my room. And knowing that he would definitely check out my cupboard I had the formidable task of hiding 6 packs of diapers.

I considered bagging and hiding them outside the window, where I had access to the roof. It was a very appealing idea but I was worried that monkeys would see a plastic bag and open them up, thinking there’s food inside. I stood there in my diaper for a while pondering, what if it rained etc.

I settled for hiding the 6 packs in the narrow gap between my desk and the wall beside the window. Took a bit of squeezing but I managed it. I covered it with other stuff, and hoped for the best. Placed some belongings at that end of the room just for good measure.

Pretty soon I was taking of my unused diaper, stuffing it into my backpack along with my laptop and homework, and was going to the gate to greet him.

We struggled to carry the fridge up, but we managed it. He surveyed my neighbours’ doorsteps before stepping in. Placing it in its place, he started the inspection. All went well, and as anticipated he checked the cupboard and my table cabinet.

Then he lunged forward towards the windows. I nearly had a heart attack.

But he merely looked out at the scenery for a few seconds, and stepped back – away from the diapers hidden in the gap. I’m pretty sure he might have smelled the (clean) diapers, but didn’t act on it.

Diapers and Hostels

Hi guys,

It has been a little busy for me again, with my holiday job and my holiday. I could barely find time to sit down to write my short stories, but the moment people started to pay to view, I had to deliver. I haven’t abandoned my blog, I’m just struggling.

I did have some trouble keeping up with the schedule but I’ve started building up my ‘queue’ of posts coming up so hopefully I can focus on other things, like my blog here, and that ebook of legend. 

But I also want to really sit myself down and get started on the animated series. There are some people who have gotten going with similar projects and as the late starter, I foresee that I will experience all off the challenges they have run into. But I am determined to get this project off the ground by year’s end.

In the meanwhile I have to get started on school! Another academic year has started yet again. I managed to move into my hostel in time for the school year, getting back the same room. But I’ve yet to adjust. I woke up at 1pm today on just the second day of school! All because I didn’t hear my alarms ring?!

I also decided to buy my diapers in bulk again like I did for the last semester. But the prices being quoted for bulk purchases this time i.e. cartons, were very expensive. Last semester I had gotten a carton of 6 packs for $50, but as the time to move in started getting closer there were only cartons available in the $60+ range. 

My window for moving in was very tight. We are only allowed to collect our keys the weekend before school starts. And I only had the family car during the weekends. And if I were to buy diapers in bulk, I would need the car. And to prevent my dad from asking questions I could only have the car for one weekend. So I had to buy the diapers on the way to school.

As luck would have it, Changi Hospital Pharmacy was having a promotion – $8.88 for a pack of TSS medium. It was such a rare deal! So on the day of my key collection I drove down. They didn’t sell in cartons but I wasn’t going to let such a deal slip away (haha), so I bought six packs. Would have bought more if I could have carried it.

Anyway, I drove in to school, waited in the long queue to check in, watched a Netflix-worthy drama unfold as some students were denied collection due to failed payments, collected my keys and rushed to clean my room, and then started shifting my stuff up, as I couldn’t park the car at the slip road (hehe) for too long.

I had to carry up my diapers the last because there were other students unloading too. And that was when I realised that I was lucky not to have purchased the carton. Because if you have read the other post Tena is NOT discreet when packaging its products. Anyway it was a chiong-sua (cycle gap/split second timing) situation between making sure the others were preoccupied and running towards the gate with two bulging bags filled to the brim with sixty adult diapers.

But no matter, I have a sufficient supply for months now.

Bear In The Big Blue House Behind-the-scenes

Bear in the Big Blue House was one of my all-time favourite cartoons. It was right near the top along with Lilo and Stitch, and Tom and Jerry. I really loved Tutter the mouse, he was this opinionated creature with what I considered an unintended sense of humour. I’ve shared one of Tutter’s classic scenes here as well.

But I loved Bear as well, he was just so friendly, as all cartoon characters are meant to be. He’s just this jolly old bear who knew what to do in every situation and I remembered looking forward to watching the series. Back then we didn’t have Disney channel at home so I’d find an excuse to go over to my grandma’s house, and fight with my cousin sister over the remote just to watch the series (and other Disney cartoons as well).

Anyway there was this recent video that landed on my YouTube feed, about how it was for puppeteer Noel MacNeal’s experience playing Bear. It just brought back memories foe me. You can watch it here:

Tumbling Along

I have been away from my blog for quite a while. Time and again I keep mentioning this, but nobody has ever dropped me a message to ask why so I’ll refrain from mentioning the reasons.

However my Tumblr has been a little more active, partly because I had auto-queued a number of posts to keep it active. I had tried to do the same with WordPress but I’m not doing it correctly, I should be ashamed to say I’ve been here for several years, yet I can’t get this right. That’s why a couple of weeks worth of posts did not appear. They will definitely appear here, don’t worry.

My Patreon site is still growing, though not as fast as I had hoped. Some even left because I had not met expectations. I am deeply apologetic that I can’t post as fast as I wanted but to my current Patrons rest assured that I have created a steady stream of content which will be debuting on Tumblr as well as Patreon respectively.

On a side note, Apple is releasing new emojis in conjunction with Emoji day. But I was  wondering why we still don’t have a diaper emoji. I mean, given that diapers are an integral part of childhood you’d think that they would be mentioned enough times to warrant a symbol of sorts, but oh well, that’s just wishful thinking on the part of a diaper lover.

Moving Things Along

I’ve been home for a second week now and I’ve not done much of the creative things I’ve set out to do.

Truth is, when you are at home all the folks make you do stuff. At times you just want to say no, but 75% of the time it will be me who eventually has to do that particular task. From bringing out grandma for appointments to doing X number of (non-regular) household tasks. I don’t really want to complain, but when it is lumped together in one go it can be a bit depressing. Siblings aren’t lifting a helping finger either.

But I have been doing some work. I have managed to plan out what content is coming out and when. Things are taking time to start up, but I want to create a buffer of sorts before I start posting.

My Tumblr Short Stories initiative is currently stuttering and sputtering. I really need to place my ass on my seat and make sure that I produce at least one story a week for people to read. That is going to be my income giver and I must admit that I’m messing this up. So starting today I’ll start posting one story a week at least.

Coming to Patreon, you guys may have noticed how quiet things are down there. I’ll admit that it’s much MUCH harder than I thought it would be but then again I am to blame for the slow pace as well. So I’ve come up with a little something to move things along.

The premise of the entire Patreon venture was to start off an Animated series. Things are going slow, but it is moving. I will start off with a series of test sequences to get my drawing and animation skills up to par first.

Are Control Plus Diapers Back?

Wish those celebrating today a happy Vesak Day! Hope the rest of you good rest today.

I was in Guardian pharmacy the other day. It was a routine grocery trip but since I was alone I sort of detoured past the diaper section, and I did a double-take. For right in front were the packages of Control Plus diapers!

The shop wasn’t crowded so I took a closer look. The packaging was as I remembered it from way back in 2014, but something seemed different. I couldn’t see if the diapers themselves were plain or had a design but I didn’t really want to prod a pack of diapers too much in public.

Something telling was the fact that these diapers were displayed on the 2m high shelf – a prime spot in retail. I didn’t see any of its sister diapers though – the Control Plus Overnight diapers.

Control Plus diapers in a Guardian Pharmacy in May 2018

I compared this photo with a package of diapers I bought in 2014 and the packaging is identical. Perhaps, it really has been resurrected – there seems to have been enough demand from customers for a major retail chain to want to restock these, and it seems that the Control Plus brand was never really dead these past few years.

I had noted earlier this year when I was doing my Guardian diaper review that some promotions that Guardian pharmacy was running suggested some sort of shift in their diaper sales. But I’ll admit that seeing the Control Plus diapers back on Guardian shelves was something unexpected, especially when you note that they are still retailing their own store-brand diapers.

It remains to be seen if these diapers have truly made a come back for the long-term, and if other retailers, chain outlets to specialty stores, will start to carry them again. I will have to wait till school starts to try these out, but when I do, I will write about it.

Clearing Up at Home

I have been up and about for the past few weeks, fresh off the end of my semester exams. Now that I sit to write this I’m kind of surprised at how time flies really quickly.

The day after my last paper I jetted off to Java, Indonesia to visit another 2 volcanoes – Mount Bromo as well as Mount Ijen. This wasn’t a diapered escapade though, but I did travel with a group. I have always travelled solo but travelling with a group was a little scary cos I didn’t know them and they seemed to know each other.

Returning to Singapore I had a 2 month backlog of home matters to tackle. I have moved out of my school hostel for the holidays and am now home. My parents and grandma just caught hold of me and made me do a tonne of things ranging from bringing them to places to fixing certain things in the house. I just felt like a personal chauffeur and plastic bag carrier at certain points.

Then there was the little tornado labeled ‘little cousin’ which wreaked havoc on the remaining peace and quiet. My 8 year old cousin spends her afternoons after school at my place where my grandma takes care of her till her parents pick her up. Of course, she clung onto me and demanded me to occupy her and being the person that I am, I was forced to oblige. Brought her to an art shop yesterday to get things to occupy her, my wallet feels lighter now.

I think now is the point where I get to sit down and really focus on several of the things I said I will do. I chose not to work full-time for the first half of the holidays specifically for this reason and I hope that I can lay the foundations to achieve that elusive goal – an ABDL cartoon. I’m working on a fixed schedule for my tumblr and patreon to make sure that content comes out regularly and on time. I am working part-time of course, I still need to pay bills.

You may catch my latest review of the Fairprice Extra Care diapers right here.

Why Am I Creating

Hi guys, I must apologize, It’s exam season again and I’m very tied for time.

Some of you have asked me why I decided to start a Patreon page. To be very frank I knew that I would have to struggle a lot to compete with other writers out there. The writing world is tiny compared to other forms, and the ABDL corner of it is but a sliver of that pool. 

But others have seen success, such as Allerted and Elibean. I cannot say that my track is different from them – not yet anyway – but I will admit that they have inspired me to try this out.

I’ve been passionate about ABDL-centric media. I’ve been a fan of Cushypen and I’ve read many many ABDL stories. I did try my hand in writing a couple of stories and I fell in love with it.

But I wanted more. I wanted to see an ABDL production – a cartoon perhaps. I knew it would be a far off dream because not many of us have the artistic talent AND animation skills AND storytelling skills. I certainly don’t have all three. Yet I want a product of such a dream. As they say, if you want it, you’ve got to get it.

My Patreon is a platform for me to build my animation skills and to sharpen my storytelling skills. The obvious truth is to make quality content you need training and software. And my idea was that if I could give some extras to my patrons in exchange for their funding, I could better myself.

What are these extras? A patron-only story every fortnight is something I hope my Patrons will enjoy. The first proper short-story is out this Thursday and it’s something that I’m sure will resonate with ABDLs from conservative families. 

The other things currently scheduled include access to character maps and plot outlines, as well as access to selected drafts. Then I plan to do polls from time to time to get your feedback on what you guys want. The real fun and games will start this June when I start asking for your opinions on ABDL cartoons, which I have started work on. 

Currently you don’t see any because it’s exam period, but I’m planning a deluge of stuff this coming end-May. 

My end of the month diaper review is here, this month I am reviewing the Guardian Comfort and Care Slip Diaper. You can read it here.

Finally, it is with regret that I must announce a blog posting hiatus. You will still see Sunday Tumblr Short Stories, as well as this coming thursday’s Patreon short-story. I may take a few days to get back to your emails and DMs.

I thank you guys once again for your support.

Find Me On Patreon

Have been thinking about this for months now and I decided to take the plunge.

I am now on Patreon!

I have been putting out several ABDL stories for some time now, and while I will continue to post them publicly on Tumblr and ABDL forums, Patreon will give me a revenue avenue so that I can continue to write.

My Patrons will definitely be able to access content which will be exclusive. From idea polls to behind-the-scene character maps, Patrons will get some insights into my stories. I have 4 pledge tiers, the basic level of which unlocks 1 short story every fortnight.

And to start off, I’m posting a 3-chapter micro novella which I had written some years back. Thereafter I will commence my fortnightly postings.

I really hope that you guys will support me on this journey, I will explain my objectives this Saturday so do keep a lookout for it.
