Last time, there used to be quite alot of stores like Daiso all over Singapore, selling cheap stuffs like Value Dollar, Japan Home etc. But now most of them have disappeared but I'm glad Daiso is still here since everything is only $2 and it is amazing how they can sell such a wide variety of goods for a mere price of $2. Ranging from makeup, nail polish, accessories, combs, toys party stuffs, cooking utensils, bowls, cups to belt, caps gift boxes, plastic containers, food etc. Such a wide variety of stuffs to choose from at an affordable price of $2, that is why I like to shop or just browse around at Daiso....
The Daiso outlet is smaller than the one at IMM and it is abit messy, but still you'll be able to find alot of items you need or interesting stuffs here.
Daiso.... A place where cheap things ain't so cheap but sometimes can be cheap too....but not too cheap looking...
Blur? It means.. Some things are Cheap but some are not. Though Cheap, But these cheap things don't look too cheap :)
Made in Japan or Made in China?
I guess... Made in china but Assembled in Japan. Or Made in China and Packaged in Japanese. Whatever it is, the material and quality of the items are good and i'm sure quality control is also good and so its close to japan made items.
For $2 what can we expect.....
A stainless steel shiny cooking spatula...
Intrisically Designed Ceramic Japanese tea cups
Useful and colourful cartooned Plastic Lunch Boxes
Retro Printed Ties
Colourful and Durable Organizing Containers
Useful Bicycle Parts
Interesting and Environmentally friendly toys
Superb quality facial care products
Japanese Junk Food.. Since they are good quality.. Its not considered Junk food but SNACKS
Umbrellas and Rain Coats
And other interesting and innovative solutions for the everyday life.
I should say its not the price of the products that matters but the solutions to our everyday life... Making living smarter, easier and more enjoyable. However I'm still glad for such a low price, there are so many innovations.
When we look at these solutions, they indeed raises our living quality, though improvement don't come in giant leaps, it makes everyday waking up a joy. More importantly, these little innovations are able to spice up the creative spirit in us and who knows.. we might be inspired to create even better solutions and while selling these solutions become Rich......
Salute to the Japanese and Thankyou Daiso.. I'm going to be a millionaire soon.. Catch me inspiring myself in Daiso....
ha.. after talking about Page one, I think I should talk about Daiso too. Comparing to the stores in Japan and back to Singapore. I find some similarity. Being packed and filled with people seems the usual in the stores here as well as in Japan.
The Daiso over here is one of the smaller branch as compared to the one located in IMM Jurong East. I normally go there to get my bicycle accessories and some bits and pieces of household necessities or stationeries if I do go Vivocity. I loved the cutlery they have and the snacks and drinks which are also offered in all the outlets.
It looks the same in all outlets which I find it a bore, things are everywhere and you really need time to look into the things they have there. Quite cluttered. Thankfully the whole place is brightly lit that I can see the things in a whole different color ha.. things seems to look prettier when its bright right? :P
