[Sad news] Closure of Daiso in VivoCity

When I first heard of the news, my first reaction was...

"This has got to be a joke, right?"

Honestly, I thought all the online news were nothing but a clickbait.

But.. It turned out that it was true.

I was dumfounded for a full whole minute.

In case you are wondering why I am so affected by this piece of unexpected news, it is because I have a deep connection towards this particular Daiso branch.

I somehow do not wish to show this unglamorous photo and never have I expected that this would be the only picture that I can retain the memory of VivoCity's Daiso.

Yes, I used to work at Daiso during my younger days (not that I am very old now either...) - but this was taken approximately more than 8 years ago.

AND yes, the main branch that I was attached to was the soon-to-close-down Daiso at VivoCity.
During those days, I have went through moments of anger, happiness, sadness... 

Pardon the blurry photo, this was taken when technology was not that advanced then.



I made a few new friends and gained experiences as a part-time sales assistant. 
I will never forget how I was so comfortable with the store layout that I could almost memorise where the stocks were located.
I did not earn much then, but I was contented with my life. I felt productive that I was actually doing something and earning money for my parents and myself.

Now that I have fully transitioned into adulthood, my workplace was surprisingly near VivoCity and it became one of my to-go stores during lunch hours.
Whenever I organised events for my department, Daiso would always be my saviour. 

From gift ideas to decorations, Daiso has it all.

And YES, I know there are many other branches in Singapore but I guess it will never be the same for me after the one at VivoCity has closed down.

To me, it holds memories.
A companion since my student days.

It's hard to see it go, but I guess it's a Goodbye for now. :(
Thank you, VivoCity's Daiso... For being my great saviour most of the times.

  3. Yes, the news hit me hard too Daiso Vivo was one of my favourite branch, it was so covenant to pop upstairs after a movie or lunch/dinner date. Now that Temt has closed down at Vivo city as well there is not much of a reason for me to travel all the way down anymore sobs.
