You shouldn't wash your jeans

I've heard this a long time ago, that jeans should not be wash as often as we think. I never really think much about that statement. But I used to wash my jeans after every wear and then gradually change to a week once.

In these few days, I got more curious about caring for jeans because I've bought a lot of colorful jeans from Kitschen recently. It's crazy cheap! But I'm not sure if it's like... the real jeans material. I know jeans aren't cheap, so I'm doubting it... Okay, I'm sure those cheap ones are fake, because some of mine has like.. little cotton-ish thing coming out. *bahaha* All together the more that I shouldn't wash them as much as I thought I should.
I decided to ask my family and friends about it. Apparently, my mum didn't even know that jeans shouldn't be washed that much. She even asked me "Isn't it dirty if you didn't wash them after you wear them for a day??", I honestly couldn't answer her anything, cause I don't even know the true way to care for them. Then I asked my friends. They said they don't wash their jeans unless they got dirty or if they smelled funny. 6 months without washing is okay they said! For me, 6 months..... wow, too long. Very dirty.

Then I asked Mr. Google. These are what I got from all of the sources I've read.

First of all, for hygienic purpose, it is common sense to wash the clothes we bought first before we wear them right? (I don't do this but if it's underwear then I would wash it first lah of course) For jeans, you can rinse it with COLD WATER and put it inside out and lay them flat to dry. You can also choose to hang them upside down too like in the picture above. It is best to dry them naturally without any heat source as it would damage the jeans material. No sun light of course.
How to lay flat to dry? I also don't know, but click the question. I've put a link of Yahoo Answers. But I guess it's basically means do not hang them as it will stretch the clothes.

Secondly, do not wash it ever again....
I'm serious. Lol. It is said that jeans should not be washed if possible. If it smells, you can just let them air dry them for awhile or even use an odour eliminating spray.
But if you choose to wash them, it is best to wash them the first time after 6 months (minimum) of wearing them using as less soap as possible, or even no soap at all. Remember to turn it inside out. Do not use biological washing powder that contains enzymes though. Don't tumble dry. Hang them in shady spot where fresh air is flowing.

There are other ways of washing them too. I'll just quote them here. This is taken from
A little known Japense method recommends taking a bath in your jeans after a few months of wear.  After around 90 days of wear, jump in a lukewarm bath with your jeans on and use a scrubbing brush to create a colour fading effect.
A third method known as the ‘reverse technique’ involves wearing your jeans after you have washed them.  To try this, prepare water in a bucket between 30c and 40c and steep your jeans in it for 1-2 hours, making sure the jeans are fully submerged. If you like, you can add a table spoon of salt or vinegar to the water. Afterwards, take the jeans out of the bucket, and wash inside out at 40c without washing agents. Dry the jeans and wear! Using this technique, you should look to undertake your second wash after around 6 months of wear.
There's more info in the link above. If you like to know more, then you're free to research on your own. :D But I guess asking a denim lover friend also works too.

After reading all of the info I got from jeans care, I realized I have done too many things that I shouldn't with my jeans. I put them all in the washing machine with A LOT of detergent. I even tumble dry them then hand them normally to dry under the sunlight. So it's getting looser and looser. No wonder. I am therefore never washing my denims that much anymore after this. Haha.

One thing that I learned not to do also.
Please do not attempt to smell anyone's jeans unless it's yours.... Otherwise... uek. 

Back to Reality

I changed my layout again! This time, back to blogger's. As it's easier for me to manage and well... less... complicated. And I like the background. At least now it's simple and the font are easier to read. It's not the size 10 font and it won't hurt your eyes while you're reading anymore! *Hurrah!*
And on the other hand, I don't have to deal with the html codes for decorating complicated shits anymore because I'm lazy like that. About few years ago, I asked myself to make an effort to go and learn some website coding via W3Schools Online Web Tutorials...

And obviously, I failed miserably.
Happy ever after.
The end.

I went full out crazy after I finished my exam. 3 weeks of holiday for me and I took an additional week off..... Week one only maaaa, sap sap water lah..
It's a new trimester now, but it doesn't change the fact that I can still sleep in class. -.- Bravo.
A short update to what I did during those 4 weeks.

The awesomest senior gang in the whole universe.
I will miss you guys!

2012/13 Senior's Graduation
Don't forget me when you all become millionaires!!! XD

And then I went to China for 5 days with my mum. Following a Shanghai Tour. So basically I've went to HangZhou, Wuxi, Su zhou and Shanghai. 

And when I came back to Malaysia... I went to 2 hours of class only for the week, then I went away again for my own sweet honeymoon with my dai gao sui


small size buildings and architecture

And then, a surprise from my Siao Yi 
Free tickets to Big Bang Alive Concert!
2 free tickets for my brother and I

G-Dragon is really really really good looking. No kidding. 
And TOP..... IS HOT!

Time to upload my pictures to facebook. A LOT to go through.


This is an overdue post.
29th September 2012

Shaftsbury Square is finally having more restaurant and food cafes now. We spotted Tappers that is newly opened, thought we'd tried it since the deco is fairly nice. We've never eaten at Tappers before, this was our first time.

A night out with my housemates. It's the day when me and Sam had out last paper for our finals. Couldn't held it in much longer, must get out and about to play. Haha. 

Shiping! I did her make-up, thought it would be fun. Cat-eye look. :D

Rigid Sam reading the menu

Shasha, spot her new green contact lenses. Cleopatra for the night. lol.

And finally, me.

And now for the food!

Spaghetti Tomato Sauce with Meatball

Chicken Schnitzel

Hainanese Chicken Chop
The food was plenty! And it's really good too. Plus the price is reasonable, not expensive plus the chicken chops can feed two of me seriously. Their spaghetti dishes are really good.
But to my disappointment, when I went there for the second time, the food tasted different. I wonder if they had hired a new chef or something. It's not nice anymore and it's just like any other food place in Cyberjaya now.  *Utterly disappointed*

Mood ~ 

Will I go again? 
Yes, since it's like eating in Oldtown or Padi House. It's the same I guess. 

Setia Walk
They're looking at their cameras, don't misunderstand. Haha!

Having fun at The Beer Factory in SetiaWalk
Note to self, never bring a guy friend to a girl's night out. Especially a friend that you're not close to. I had to be a "nanny" to make sure he's not left out plus my housemates weren't talking as much as they do because it's awkward. T.T And The Beer Factory is too loud and noisy, not a good place for talking too. 

But I enjoyed myself anyway.
