Update Jan 2017: The Tokutokuya outlets at Kallang Leisure Park & Ang Mo Kio Big Mac Centre are now changed to Mijyi – Your Dollar Up Mart. The only Tokutokuya outlet in SG is located at Changi City Point.
Just a quick post for today cos’ I’m now preparing for Double-11 (11 November) which is the largest online shopping day in the world! And I’m just about going crazy on Taobao (because everything’s in Chinese!) with a huge shopping cart of (more) zakka, kitchenware, photography props and a bunch of stuff for the husband too. Ooooh, so exciting!!! 😀
It seemed like Lady Luck had been smiling on me recently because I had won several contests in a row, woohoo! Lady Lottery, are you coming my way too? haha! Anyway, I dropped by Leisure Park Kallang’s Filmgarde Cineplex to collect my movie voucher prize and while I was doing my window shopping, I stumbled upon Tokutokuya which was just like a Daiso store except that it had more aesthetically pleasing zakka finds and homeware. 😉 While most items in Tokutokuya had no price tags and that meant they were priced at S$2 each, there was also a selection of premium goods with individual price tags of S$3 and up.
After spending more than an hour in the shop, I managed to leave the shop with a ‘modest’ loot. Particularly loved my apple-shaped porcelain bowl, fancy cutleries and biscuit stamps. 🙂
The next day, I decided that I would visit their second outlet at Changi City Point too. Yeah, I’m an addict. 😛
These wooden plates (S$9 each) caught my eye and I just had to grab them. Made in the Philippines. Quality seemed pretty good. I liked that they were quite thick and solid and that the surface was also treated so it wasn’t a problem to wash them like how I would with other regular dishes (no abrasive scrubbing pads of course!).
For those looking for Japanese-style ceramic dishware, wooden tableware, patterned cutleries and decorative zakka, you might want to check out Tokutokuya cos’ they have a different range of these products as compared to Daiso’s which hasn’t been updated for a long time now.
Happy shopping, folks! 😉
