One of Daiso Japan’s outlets located at The Curve in Mutiara Damansara seemed to be doing quite well- better than the Hinode shops. Basically, the store is selling important items from Japan- at RM5.90 for all items:
There are a lot of variety in this store- from kitchen items, stationeries, garden products, sewing kits, slippers, bags, underwear, learning books, decorative items….they are all sold for RM5.90. There are some innovative items offering a little convenience or comfort to daily living.
I bought a CD case for automobiles (mesh pocket type) that’s 30.5cm (about 12 inches). I just insert the rubber cord into the sun’s car visor and find it very convenient now. Before this, I used to put my CDs either on a passenger seat or at the place near my gearbox. When I wanted to listen to a particular CD, I would need to fiddle around at the CD case. With this CD case, I just reverse my car sun visor and able to see my 10CDs being displayed. I just take it out and insert into the player. No more taking my eyes off the road for too long to search for CDs. Of course, these items are sold at other stores but it is much more than RM5.
Took the pictures as the hanging soft toys are cute.
Above are assortments of hair items. The only other place you can get items cheaper is at the night market (pasar malam). But the pasar malam stores usually carry hair accessories items that are made in China- they are of lower quality.
Above: Japanese plates and cups. Don’t really dare to drink my tea from there- as it is cheap, I am concerned that the paint is lead paint.
