I am a super big fan of Daiso and I loved to go shopping at Daiso outlets. I even joined almost all Daiso groups on Facebook to get to know more Daiso fanatics like myself. I really loved their ideas and am looking forward to their post daily.

Daiso kinda reminds me of the good old $1.99 shop. I missed that shop too. That was the shop that got me addicted to japanese culture and snacks. I would never fail to go shopping during my lunch break when I was working at Ngee Ann City. Its like treasure hunt to me.

With just a mere $2 per item, you will tend to overlook and grabbed too many items, only to realised it when you are making payment at the cashier counter. So I only bring enough money for my meal and max $10 with me if I were to go Daiso.

The solar powered black and white kitties are so cute. I bought a set for myself and more to share among my friends. They all loved them too. The orange bottle is Wrinkle smoother for clothes. I saw a number of good reviews among Daiso fans for it so I’ve gotten a bottle to try too. Not really a wow factor for me. But at least my clothes remain nice and smooth for a while.

The translucent tray is called a fry try. It is suppose to contain ingredients for you to prepare fried stuff, thus its name. The fry tray is from a similar shop name Tokutokuya. Daiso also sells fry tray but I was never able to get any for myself. It was often sold out within hours after being display out. I loved to read updates and see the different ways of using the fry tray by other and be super amazed by their creativity and awesome ideas.

Next are the cute key cover. I am sure you can tell by now that I am a big fan of anything kitty too. But surprisingly, the mouthless hello kitty is just not my type. I prefer Kuromi instead.

The body sheet is a highly recommended by one lovely gal, Mei ling. And that I definitely must grabbed at least one packet to try. And that I would never regret my decision. She is absolutely correct. The body sheet had since that day topped my list for 1000% die die must buy items from Daiso. Try it and you will loved it like me too.

It is also thank to Mei Ling that I was able to own things from Daiso in Japan and Thailand. She is a very sweet lady who helped all fellow Daiso Fans grabbed things from oversea Daiso back to Singapore and selling them to eager fans at cost price. OMG! Isn’t that so sweet of her??? Although there are people who take advantages of her (Buy cheap from her and go sell on Carousel at profit price). I think those people are totally disgusting..

Everytime I looked at them, I can’t helped but be amazed by the vast type of items available at overseas Daiso. I mean, why can’t they bring in to Singapore also… I am sure a lot of fans like me would loved to get their hands on the items if given the chance…

What is your favourite item from Daiso? And how much do you loved it? Care to share with me here?

 Til the next post, Au Revoirs…

Hahaz! Yes I did it again! Despite the numerous failure attempts I had months ago at making sweets using soft clay from Daiso. I’ve decided to take up that challenge again. Got myself more clay and also an extra plastic mould. Speaking if, I think I can also loan from my sister, the plastic mould that she had bought from Books Kinokuniya Stationery dept last week too. Wonder how I will fare this time? Or will I give up again?

Another Treasure From Daiso

Published November 17, 2011 by ireneyksoh

Going window shopping at Daiso during break time or after work is becoming a habit of mine. Not only am I captivated by the S$2 per item price, but also because I’m able to find fascinating things for sale there.

So when I popped in after work today and saw a row of puzzle books. I can’t helped but grabbed a copy for myself off the shelf.

The puzzle is known as nonograms, also known as Hanjie, Paint by Numbers, shady puzzle, or Griddlers, are picture logic puzzles in which cells in a grid have to be colored or left blank according to numbers given at the side of the grid to reveal a hidden picture.

I first got to know about it from My Paper, a free SPH publication. A new puzzle will be published every thursday and the answers published on friday. Am so glad to have gotten a book of the puzzle to play.

DIY Button Kit From Daiso

Published November 9, 2011 by ireneyksoh

Am very into craft recently and been to many places searching for and buying art materials. Art Friends and Golden Dragon are the two most popular places recommended to me by my friends. But recently, I tend to find small treasures of such at our local Daiso stores too.

My latest craft set from Daiso- DIY Button Kit. There were quite a few sizes available and I choose size 22mm. This is the 2nd lager size button that is available for sale at Daiso. I also got a pack of the refill so that I can make more. I shall now begin my craft work…


I took out the helping kit from the set and also a set of the button materials. For this trial, I decided to use stickers instead of the usual cloth material. And the above is the sticker that I’ve decided how my first DIY button shall look like. And I also prepared a clear plastic sheet as an extra protection for my soon to be accomplished button.


Firstly, I need to assemble the materials and place them in the following order: plastic sheet, sticker, then lastly, top part of button. Using the blue cover, I will need to push it down, till it hits the base of the white tool.


After that, trim away the excess and fold down the flaps onto the top button part. Part one is thus completed. Now I shall moved on to the final step.


 Finally, place the bottom part of the button into the white tool and pushed it down using the blue cover. The blue cover is to aid the pressing down of the lid without hurting your hand.


All I have to do now is to push my self-made button out from the white tool and it is then finally done. Pretty easy, isn’t it? Am now looking for more pictures to make other button. Am so gonna make more and sew them all onto my sling bag.
