Scary Blue Container

The other day I was at Daiso (a shop where all items are priced at RM5), one of my favourite places to browse around, when I came across this pretty blue plastic container.

I tried to open the cover but couldn't although I twisted and pulled at it. So I had to read the instructions pasted at the side of the container. Turns out that there is a release mechanism on the top of the cover that I had to press with a finger which would loosen the cover with a loud 'pop'.

I've read all kinds of instructions in very poor English which usually accompanies products made in some Asian countries, but this one had me almost rolling on the floor with laughter...

In case it's too small to read, it says:
"When you remove the cover, remove it quietly.
What is inside may jump out of it."

Go figure!

Ha ha! It is hilarious! I wonder what is the "thing" that will jump put...an invisible little monster??

Oh ya, I also like to shop at Daiso, and during a recent trip to Taiwan, I notice it is slightly cheaper there ($390).

Hi YuinTing,

I'm wondering too! It's quite fun shopping at Daiso and it's hard not to get carried away and buy stuff that I don't need, though.
