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.
