as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
wow it seems like a loooooooong time since I last blogged! wierd how a week and a half of absence can seem so long after blogging pretty regularly! I am back inshallah :)
I went to Arabian Center with my husband's niece today and was browsing around in a store named Daiso. This is a store that I love going to and its a chain store from Japan that sells a bunch of things. In Japan the stores are cheaper than they are over here in UAE... but I think that goes for a lot of different stores/brands over here.
Anyhow, while looking at the toothbrushes I saw one thing that really concerned me (I can read Japanese--not fluently but enough) --the concerning part has a red square around it:
I was thinking to myself... "That word means pig hair!" and it says its a new hybrid toothbrush with a mix of nylon bristles and pig hair bristles!!
Then I was thinking maybe I'm confusing the Kanji characters of "pig" with "cow" and turned it over to see if there was anything written in English, and it sure was there!!
I let the woman at the check-out know and she said she would tell the manager but she didn't sound concerned at all so I showed and explained it to the manager myself. He said he would get them taken down right away and I reminded him to contact all the other Daiso branches in UAE and he said he would.
The biggest problem is my husband's niece and I couldn't find any other of those toothbrushes so if that wasn't the only one originally in stock at that store, then people have already bought them and are using them!
