Missing Plastic-backed Diapers

As time moves on, we don’t really think much about the old plastic-backed diapers these days. I mean, in this part of the world where many of us hide our diapers from family and where the weather is hot, cloth-backed diapers and pull-ups are the obvious choice. Even though a plastic-backed diaper is much cheaper, we prioritise comfort and security.

A few months back I had managed to get my hands on some vintage diapers. They are some Tena Slips which I had managed to bring into Singapore with some difficulty, but that’s a story for another day… Anyway, I haven’t really worn them since.

For those of you who follow my Tumblr post you may remember a few days ago I did open up a vintage Tena Slip Plus and double-up over my usual cloth-backed Slip Plus. I did that because I was already in my cloth-backed diaper and I didn’t really want to damage the tapes.

Anyway, it did bring back come memories for me. The texture of the plastic-backing and the occasional crinkle as I shifted in my seat were but a reminder that I am a longtime ABDL. I guess the younger ABDLS and TBDLs won’t really know what’s fantastic about these Tenas but for me it was a wonderful feeling.

But I did forget that these plastic-backed diapers don’t stretch. I placed the tapes onto the frontal patch at the same location I did before I gained some weight (mind you, it’s just a few kilos). And a few minutes later I was contemplating adjusting the tapes because they were tight, and didn’t stretch like a cloth-backed diaper would.

I gave up eventually and took off the vintage Tena, knowing that if i had readjusted it the tapes would lose stickiness when the time came for me to eventually use it. Bottom felt much less constricted.

To be honest, I’m not sure why I’m still not using my plastic-backed dips. I must have bought at least 7 packs of my usual cloth-backed Tenas since I received them, but I haven’t touched any of the vintage diapers and a handful of other ABDL dips I bought all those months ago (save for that VTSP which I keep wearing over other dips).

I mean I do wan’t to wear them, but with my current situation it’s possible-but-risky and I just have a handful of them. I could get some Tena Values or some Fairprice dips, but again, security. Crinkles are fun, until your dad hears them. Yeah I know, I’ve been down that rabbit hole before. There is no such risk with cloth-backed diapers. And when dry they don’t poof out too.

I guess that these vintage diapers are “too precious” for me to use them on an ordinary night. I haven’t been on any diapered escapades recently so maybe for my upcoming Bali trip I might try a couple at long last. I did want to “model out” and take some pics, but I realised that 1) my body isn’t exactly photogenic, 2) I’m not a girl and 3) with Tumblr clamping down I have nowhere to post them. Oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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.

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.

Diaper Shopping In Diapers

Earlier I had returned to my uni hostel after the long weekend. My roommate wasn’t back  from Malaysia yet and I decided to go out of campus again to replenish my diaper stash and eat dinner. I really did not feel like removing my diaper, so I pulled my jeans over it and left for Jurong Point Mall.

As today was a public holiday, most of the shops and food-court stalls weren’t open, but the mall was crowded for some unknown reason. I settled for some fast food at KFC, and set about looking for the Unity pharmacy. I wanted to avoid Fairprice Supermarkets (there were 2 in this mall, for some unknown reason) in case I bumped into people I knew. It was getting late anyway.

I found it inside one of the Fairprice, it was a tiny outlet. Their diaper shelf had a limited selection of Lifree, Tena Value and Tena Slip Super. I settled for the TSS. There were only two packages of mediums left, on the topmost shelf. I cringed as I reached up, my shirt riding up dangerously. One of them was dusty as if it had been on the top shelf for a long time, so I had to reach up again for the other. The price was also cheap, at $1.40. I didn’t think much of it.

I quickly paid for my purchase and left the outlet, walking past the foreign workers who were starting to flood the mall. I stopped to quickly stuff the package into my backpack, and was soon off.

But as I walked to catch the bus back, something seemed strange. The package was light and smaller, the price was significantly cheaper without discounts, and one package was dusty. Then it dawned on me that I may have chanced upon the original plastic-backed Tena Slips! Unfortunately, the bus was crowded with students and I had to wait and see.

Eagerly I returned to my room and opened up my backpack. It was just the regular cloth-backed Tena Slip Super, sadly. But it did give me a good story for my Tuesday post 🙂

I’ve written a second review, this time for the Tena Wet Wipes. Do read it if you would like to know more about these fantastic wipes.
