bringing a big bag to carry my stuff smile_wink.gif . But a bit worried about customs on the way back in to Penang. My liter size bottles of Menz will look like little rockets in the scanner.


Let's pray for it smile_approve.gif

Just open and show them....ha! ha!
Not as bad when I went to Bangkok for inter games with my office there.
I was in bowling and imagine what shows up in the scanner. Even the officer got a fright and move away, then ask me to open the bag....kekekekekeke smile_big.gif smile_big.gif

I got back a couple nights ago. Everyone was forced to put their bags thru the scanner at the customs check in Penang airport, but i noticed the customs officers were not even looking at the screen, they were having a laugh about something else, so all the bags just went thru the machine and everyone just grabbed and ran. Quite silly if you ask me.

Anyway, in terms of shampoo, brought back Dodo SN and Zaino Z-7.

Tried the Zaino Z-7 last night, smells like primary school canteen diluted grape drink, which isn't bad. The shampoo itself is pretty good, quite similar to DG901 but a little less foam and less colour. Cleans well and has good water sheeting, and lubricity was good as well, but to me still a bit less than Dodo Shampoos. At a normal price of RM40-RM50 for a 16oz bottle, dilution ration 1oz to 1 gallon, I can only get about 12 washes or less from one bottle (as I like to use 1.5 gallons per wash), which i find to be relatively expensive. For me, I'll stick to my Dodo BTBM.

Yup, I agree with you. BTBM tops Z-7 overall smile.gif

Been using Dodo SN recently. i use 6ml for 1.5gallons, i think it's about 1:1080 or something like that, although the recommended ratio is 1:1500. Not too good at the conversion game. It doesn't foam quite as much as BTBM or other shampoos, but it's really slick (slicker than almost any other shampoo i've tried) and cleans very well. Also helps the water sheet off very nicely, and is supposed to have limescale inhibitors or something in there. The 250ml bottle is good for 40-50 washes and it's so small and easy to store. The only complaint i have is the lack of smell (dunno if it's just me, but i like my car washes with fragrant smells), other than that it's truly an excellent shampoo.

Bros 2322, msk and valkjr, please do give some reviews once tried. smile_thumbup.gif
