Rediscovering the wonder of Daiso

So here I am in Korea and I'm in the process of making a "first blog post in Korea" kind of post, but I'm just going to make this little one showing you guys one of my favourite shops from Japan.


I like you too, cat clock!

Daiso is the Japanese equivalent of Poundland, albeit not as full of Kia Ora and dog toys shaped as strawberries, and is actually a good shop. When I was in Japan and in need of pretty much anything from kitchenware to a wide variety of obviously fake flowers (I only ever bought one and it was beautiful), I went to Daiso. Now I'm back in the East of Asialand and have recently moved into my new apartment (another blog post coming soon) so kitchen stuff and general housey things are needed. Whilst looking through the items that were bundled into one of the stores I found in Seoul, I found quite a few humorous phrases I had to take photos of. This was one of the joys of visiting Daiso in Japan where I would head to the notebook section and read off the most ridiculously nonsensical and oddly poetic things I could find. The notebooks were the best.


You heard the bird!


This one was a pretty good one. As per usual, I have no idea wtf it's on about. For all those who can't read it (apologies for the bad photo) here is what it says:
If your head is wax, don't walk in the sun
The most courageous act is still to think
for yourself. Aloud it is a great ability to be able to
conceal one's ability

Pride sullies the noblest character
If we all did the thing we are capable of doing, we would literally
astound ourselves. The important thing was to love rather than to be loved
One cannot love and be wise

Firstly, thanks for the advice. Secondly, I'm no longer going to do what I'm capable of doing. Sounds scary.


Somebody freaking loves eating used tissues.


"Oh hi, I'm a cool bear and look at my feet."


Maybe giving scissors to your crush is a normal thing here.


Now that right there is some powerful stuff!
Plus creepy, black, staring animal...


This one is just freaking adorable. I've never wanted to hug clay/ china so much


uhuhuh......... that's what he said.....

And now for the Pièce de résistance!

I dunno if I'm gonna use that for my chopsticks or not....
