I've alway been a fan of Daiso. Though I know there are many daiso fans out there, I was hard pressed to find any friends around me who were as passionate about daiso as I am. Even if I had been to a Daiso in another shopping centre the day before, Daiso is my must stop centre. Every Daiso is different ya? And there may be slight variations in it's stock.
I thought I was alone till I find some Daiso closed groups on FB. Omg there were people who are definitely more into Daiso than I am!
It is there that I discovered how crazy the Maison Clement craze is in Singapore. Stocks sell out half an hour after they restock. People buy in bulk. There are some who queue outside the store before they open! What is this madness!!!
This is the view at Daiso Bukit Indah JB over the weekend.
In Malaysia there is no such craze. But I can't help but get caught up in the hype. I went to the Sunway Pyramid branch and found after rather detailed searching, two of the Maison designs. One in pale pink and another in a pearly white.
Gosh i was hooked. I bought 3 of each, attracting stares from passerbys.
In mid valley I found another 3 designs. You can't imagine how difficult it is to search for them. I blame it on the huge array of products in Daiso. Not all the Maisons are placed in the same place either. They may be scattered throughout the store.
My loot thus far
The range consists of a pale pink and white series. I personally prefer the pink. But some industrious people have started colouring in the wordings of their maisons and these show up better in the white.
There are items in the series. I haven't seen all of them but it seems there's a mail holder, magazine holder, cylindrical tin can, a box in two sizes, some pen holders, a B5 sized tray and a round plastic container.
I don't even know how I'm gonna use them. What I'm sure of though, is that I have something to look forward to when I go shopping! Redefining purpose in life! Lol! Not really, but it does make life just much sweeter.
