Have you ever heard of the No Plastic Bag Bazaar? If you like the idea of environmentally-friendly shopping, then head over to Noble Banquet along Jalan Bukit Bintang this 31st August for a first-hand experience.

There’ll be plenty of pre-loved fashion items for sale and celebrities have even put up some of their own pieces for auction. Plus you can adopt a pet right there at the event! Now how’s that for a fun family day out? 🙂

I’ll also be selling my soap there, along with my soon-to-be-made whipped cocoa body butters. Will be showcasing my home-made soap batches which are quite different from what I currently offer, as I’m including organic vegetable and nut oils as part of my ingredients.

Sharing the table with me will be Andrew Kit of Ndevo. I *promise* I’ll get a photo of this handsome young chap, whose keen eye for beauty and detail has won his gift shop a loyal following. Latest by Tuesday next week, okay? 😉

Oooh, I can’t wait! Especially since I’ll get to meet with some old friends whom I haven’t had the chance to catch up with ever since my kids came along. It’s gonna be one fun afternoon! Please do drop by and support this event, would love to see you there.

  1. Oh! You have new soaps? How come you never post their photos? Would be interesting to see 🙂

    1. Heh, well, all we want to do is make the conscious choice to use one less plastic bag every day. And as we slowly influence other people to do the same, I’m sure it’ll make a difference to reducing plastic bag usage across the globe. For myself, I sometimes make use of my furoshiki cloth to carry groceries etc. I wrote a blogpost about it here sometime last year. There’s a diagram to show you how to tie those bags! 😀

      Yes there will definitely be a tiny water content in the body butter. More so since I’m here in humid Malaysia. So far my oldest batch of body butter (I think it’s about 3 months old already) hasn’t shown any signs of mold but I agree with playing it safe as much as possible. I’ll still keep preservatives as a last resort though.

      Photos of my soap–ah, that’s going to take a while, haven’t gotten round to doing it. :”> Need to carve out a proper time in the day to blog properly! But yes, that’s coming soon, coming soon…

  2. Hmm, I don’t know about no having plastic bag. Sometime I buy a bit of stuff I like to have some sort of bag. Maybe paper bag will do. Sometime it puts me off when they wanting 20 cents for a bag.

    Not too sure about the earth getting any greener if without bags. I think this is rather a type of propaganda. Maybe just my way of thinking :o)

    By the way, I have read that the whipped butter have to be used up within 2 months or so otherwise it will start growing mold and bacteria. Have you read that some where? I am trying to make sense of it, well maybe because they get whipped and air contains water molecules. I hope I’m getting this right.

    I’m trying to sell body butter but I think I will test it a bit longer. I might opt for preservative. Better be safe. I don’t want to get sued if customers end up with skin diseases haha! But those that are not whipped look pretty good.
