Poo-free ~Step on the way of healthy

It has been ages since I have updated my blog!
I still have a long way to go for writing blogs for my trip to the US/Taiwan/Harbin and Beijing !( Can’t believe I visited more than 4 cities in one year!)

Now I am back to wordpress and I hope to use it for recording my way for Poo-free.

So what is poo-free? when I first heard this name, I felt strange and couldn’t help laughing!
Does it mean a life without poo poo? Haha! Absolutely NOT!

Poo-free means “NOT USING SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER/HAIRMASK for your hair” .
It means only using WATER for cleaning your hair!

I first heard this name when my frd liked and shared post from a facebook group called ” 我愛Poo-Free “
For English , you may try to read a nice blogger  about her amazing experience.

You may find it totally non-sense for not using anything for cleaning your hair.
I was not a believer at the beginning but still I thought it’s worthy for giving a try.

I have been using soap for washing my body for years.
Ivory is my favorite one .
At first I used Ivory for face-washing since I read a book called  Stop!別再錯誤保養啦! (Sorry, it is a Chinese book translated from Japanese. I dunno whether they had an English version).
The author of this book suggested people to stop using any skincare for face and to use soap for face washing.
I did try it for a while for not using any skincare and it felt good.
However I did want to have an improvement of my skin so I gave up the “not-using skincare” things.

Then I realized that it is not a bad thing for using Ivory for body washing!
My partners for body washing are  ” Ivory + Vaseline Total Moisture Body Lotion “.
My body is fresh and skin became smooth.

I didn’t feel dry even I used soap for body washing during winter.  I haven’t used any body scrub or other shower gel since then.
The important thing is, those things aren’t expensive at all.
I bought a package of 4 Ivory soap around HKD 20 and one bottle of Vaseline (500 ML) around HKD30.
So HKD 50 (around USD 5)  is my body wash package for around 2 months !

That’s the beginning of what I think ” Poo-free” is reasonable . I can keep using simple things for my body. Why not letting my hair to try something simple?

Here is why I am on my way to poo-free.

The first thing I did for poo-free is to…
CUT

Hello Taiwan – Day One ( 大玩台灣的第一天)

<English version will be provided later. Stay Tune>

原來,已經是第四次到台灣了.
第一次是15年前跟團的環島遊,走馬看花的看台灣.
只記得10多年前的台灣,給我一種很80年代的感覺.

第二次是半自遊行,有捷運,方便了不少.
第三及第四次,是全自遊行了.
今次去台灣,是因為替媽媽慶生,剛好我的Asiamiles又足夠換到2張來回去台北的機票,所以就選擇到台北了!

以下是這次旅行的資料:
日期: 2013年11月16日至20日
地點: 台北
入住酒店: 璞麗商務旅館
* 酒店房間雖然細小,但乾淨及位置方便(從捷運西門6號出口,步行約5分鐘就到了),
職員的服務態度也很好~住了4晚共付了HKD 3,076, 我會推介大家入住的~
航班: 港龍 (去程: 8AM 起飛 ; 回程: 10.30AM 起飛, 真的是早機去,晚機返)

清晨的香港機場, 很美~

 

我看到很多BLOG友也提議在台灣的ATM拿台幣,這是正確的~因為exchange rate 真的很不錯
我在兆豐國際商業銀行用銀聯(UnionPay) 取了20,000台幣, 加上15HKD的手續費,exchange rate 是HKD 1 = TWD 3.79
所以兌換率真的很不錯喲!

到步之後,取了提錢之外就是買電話CARD了.
很多香港人排隊買台灣大哥大的電話CARD, 應該是300TWD 可以用5天,
不過我見到人太多, 最少要排一小時,所以我買了遠傳電訊的450TWD 可以用5天, 無限上網.
用了5天,感覺很好.

乘搭國光客運到台北火車站, 125 TWD 一位 ~ 價錢很合理

好了~台北,我來了!
