GOO.N Baby Diapers Passed My Absorbency Test and Beyond That

I am very excited to be selected to review this GOO.N diaper. Coincidentally, the usual brand that my son is using has ran out of stock in my neighboring hypermarket. So, this opportunity came just in time. And after using this for a few days now, I am very comfortable to stick to this brand.

GOO.N Tape - Excellent Dry

A Perfect Fit!

GOO.N diapers has higher absorbency which I've quickly noticed after using it on my 1 year old son for few days. The super lock system effectively absorbs liquid and prevent it from flowing back to the surface, resulting in the diaper being dry and comfortable all-day long.

Besides these 3 cute prints, there are varieties of prints which are equally cute.

Usually, my 1 year old son wears an XL size diaper but for GOO.N diapers, he's wearing an M size. GOO.N diaper M size is quite big, compared to the regular brand we used. It measured at approx. 8 inch in length.

Another obvious differences that I was quick to noticed is that these GOO.N diapers are much slimmer than the regular brand we used. This is a good reason for us to use GOO.N diapers for outing because we can pack more diapers in our diaper bag without having our bag to look too bulky.

To show the effectiveness of the absorbency, I've run a quick test on GOO.N diaper. As shown on the packaging, it can absorb 5 cups of liquid, so I prepared 5 cups/ glasses of liquid, with each cup/ glass containing 250ml of liquid, which means I have total of 1.25 liters of liquid. As a baker myself, a cup means 250ml. But never did I know that the cup mentioned refer to only 40ml of liquid and I only get to know about this after running the test.

No wonder it feels not right. As I was pouring the liquid, I was thinking, "how can a baby pee so much?"

However this 'mistake' has shown that GOO.N diapers has HIGH ABSORBENCY and can really absorb liquid, as much as over a liter of water without getting the outer diaper wet.

After 250ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 6 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

As I poured the first glass of liquid onto the diaper, the liquid was quickly absorbed into the soft cottony material.

After 250ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 6 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

With the paper towel on top of the diaper, I pressed my hand against it.

After 250ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 6 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

The diaper remained dry, and so does the paper towel.

By right, this is the end of the test. And it has proved what it has claimed on the packaging.
But because that I've mistakenly calculate the cup measurement, hence the rest of the test. Please note that the rest of this test is just for reference.

After 500ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 12 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

As I poured the second glass of liquid, the liquid was quickly absorbed into the soft cottony material but not as fast as previous test.

After 500ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 12 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

The diaper still felt dry (when touched with hand) but there were slight hint of wetness on the paper towel.

After 750ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 18 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

From the third glass of liquid onwards, it takes a few second to get all the liquid absorbed into the diaper.

After 750ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 18 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

The paper towel is starting to get wetter.

After 1000ml of liquid;
equivalent to 25 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

At this point, I was thinking if my baby has pee this much, I would have just changed a new diaper. But this is an absorbency test, so I diligently poured another 250ml of liquid onto the diaper.

After 1000ml of liquid;
equivalent to 25 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

The surface of the diaper was wet and so does the paper towel.

After 1250ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 31 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

As I poured the last glass, some of the water slides to the sides but was slowly absorbed into the diaper.

After 1250ml of liquid;
equivalent to approx. 31 cups of liquid (1 cup = 40ml).

The paper towel was fully wet at where my hand pressed.

This is after 1250ml of liquid being absorbed into the diaper. Even tho' it looked like it is going to explode but the liquid was well retained in the diaper.

The outer side of the diaper remained dry and there you can see the wetness sign on the two lines.
(Yellow lines = DRY, Green/ Blue lines = WET)

1. GOO.N diapers are much more slimmer. (so that you can pack more diapers without getting a bulky bag)
2. GOO.N diapers has HIGH absorbency. (refer to my test above)
3. GOO.N diapers are softer. (even my hubby can noticed that)
4. GOO.N diapers has wetness sign on the outer diaper. (so that you don't have open up the diaper or touch the diaper to know the wetness)
5. GOO.N diapers remained dry and comfortable all-day long.

1. The exterior of the diaper tends to be easily wears off after a few brushes against a wet hand. But this is not really an issue to me because it can be solved by wearing a pants over the diaper. The regular brand that we used will also have the same issue.

If you are thinking to try a new brand, GOO.N diaper is a great option. You can get them now at LAZADA. If you are new customers, you can get 20% OFF. Just mention this voucher code 20LAP20 during checkout.

Best Cendol @ Seremban Station Hainan Coffee, Equine Park

Ever since the first time I tried the cendol at Old Seremban Cafe, Summit USJ (sometime last year), I've been going there every time for my cendol craving. There are no other places in Klang Valley that I could get the same creaminess and the same flavorful bowl of cendol as at Old Seremban Cafe.

But, Summit USJ is kind of far from me. So when I know that there is another branch of Old Seremban Cafe called Seremban Station Hainan Coffee (SSHC) at Equine Park which is only merely 10 minutes away from my place, I was tinkled pink! Now I can have my cendol craving fixed just within minutes, well 10 minutes to be exact.

Homemade Fresh Nyonya Cendol @ RM4.90
Rating: 4.5/ 5
Their cendol are HOMEMADE daily with NO preservatives or coloring added. Using traditional recipe, these cendol are paired with fresh coconut milk, juicy kidney bean and aromatic palm sugar/ gula melaka,making this bowl of cendol simply irresistible!

Look at these fatty cendol! With no perservatives and coloring added, I can let my 3 years old daughter eat these without worried, and she loves it.

While we were there, we took the opportunity to try their Customers' Favourites ~ Penang Asam Laksa and Hainanese Chicken Chop.

Penang Asam Laksa @ RM8.50
Rating: 3.5/ 5
I don't usually order asam laksa at kopitiam/ cafe like this. I only eat the BEST at Penang. But given that it looks super appetizing on the menu, I decided to give it a try. Good thing, SSHC did not disappoint me. The broth was really thick and flavorful.

The prawn paste/ har kow comes separately in a bottle so that you can put as much as you wanted or you can omit it if you doesn't like prawn paste/ har kow. What a thoughtful idea!

Hainanese Chicken Chop @ RM13.90
Rating: 3/ 5
My hubby had this and he is the one to rate this dish. I was attending to my daughter when his meal arrived, and I thought I will try a bit of this later but he finished it up before I could try it. Hmmm... i shall order this in my next visit.

Crunchy Butter Sugar Toast @ RM3.20
Rating: 3/ 5
I was excited to see this on the menu because this is how I like to have my toast. Toasted bread with butter and sprinkled with some sugar on top. Yum.. yum..

Thick French Toast Original @ RM2.90
Rating: 3/ 5
A classic way of preparing french toast with crisp exterior.

Iced Hainan Coffee & Iced Teh Tarik
@ RM3.60 & RM3.90

Rating: 3/ 5
The iced Hainan Coffee was too 'coffeefy'. If you like kopitiam coffee, you will love this. But for me, I preferred their White Coffee. The iced teh tarik was nice tho' with thick aromatic tea flavor.

As the menu cover suggested, Seremban Station Hainan Coffee serve Traditional Malaysian Delights from breakfast dishes to dinner dishes. We've tried their fried rice and noodles before, it was quite good.

Value Meals Promotion Set
They have Value Meals Promotion from 11am to 9.30pm with reasonable prices. Choose promo B & C to have drinks included, or simply add RM1.20 to have a drink with promo A.

Interior of Seremban Station Hainan Coffee (SSHC)
Beside the cozy interior, I love the fact that the staffs are child-friendly. When you have kids, it is good to feel welcomed despite the noises and mess that your kids are making. Well, not to say that my kids are very noisy, but my son are still in 'training' stage. Sometimes, he can be a noise pollution!

Fun Homemade Play Sand For Toddlers

After successfully making my first homemade play dough for my daughter, I was eager to make this homemade play sand for her. This recipe is really easy ~ no cooking required. All you need to do is mix two ingredients together. Pretty simple right!

The key ingredient is to use Whole-Wheat Flour. It gives the texture and color like real sand. The sand was soft when you first make them, and if you let it sit for overnight, it will get softer. This is because the oil was well absorbed into the flour.

Other thing that I've observed is that the sand was less oily on Day 2, compared to Day 1. I found that the base of my cardboard box has absorbed most of the oil, which is good. So, if you are using a plastic box/ container, you may want to lined them with few sheets of baking sheets.

For the container/ box, preferably to use a shallow one for easy access and play. This box which was used to keep mandarin oranges was the perfect size. I've saved it from my Chinese New Year.

Happiness has no price tag. She loves her new play sand. Loving every second of her laughter!

Here's her 11 months old brother joining along.

But he was more interested in the tools rather than playing with the sand.

As you can see, the floor was pretty clean, right? Don't get cheated by this. It was because as I was watching them play, I sweep the floor when there were too much of sand on the floor.

It is advisable to put on an apron for easy cleaning up. The sand can really get into the clothes and if it does, clean it up with a lint roller before washing the clothes. I've learned this the hard way! Haha

(Recipe Source from Fun-A-Day)

Prep Time  : 5 mins
Cook Time : NIL
Total Time : 5 mins
Makes       : 7 1/2 cup sand

1kg whole wheat flour
3/4 cup oil
Few drops artificial flavoring (optional)

Lined the bottom of your container with 3 - 4 pcs baking sheets.

1. In a big mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients until well combined. Pour into prepared container and start building your sand castle away!

● I used blended cooking oil and it has an unpleasant smell. So I added a few drops of artificial flavoring to cover up the unpleasant smell. You may omit this if you are using vegetable oil.

● The sand will get softer on Day 2. This is because the oil was well absorbed into the flour.

Make this recipe? Don't forget to snap a photo of it and tag #msyummyliciousrecipe on social media! I would love to see them! Enjoy my recipe!
