UNIQLO @ Central World


I have made a mistake by underestimating the purchasing power in Bangkok and misjudged the Bangkokian’s obsession to one particular consumer brand, namely
Uniqlo,  the Japanese version of H&M, which opens today on 3rd floor, Central world. There will be another branch in Central Plaza Ladprao too. I was not expecting a long queue for the jeans or t-shirts actually but, believe it or not, the queue was so long and it took me 45 minutes to enter to the store. The store is spacious enough to walk around and enjoy the colorful tees and jeans but as for today, it is just a dream. It is very crowded due to their promotional plan starting from today to 18 September: it discounts some items like T-shirt for 290 Bahts, 390 Bahts to a pair of jeans for 490 Bahts, including the hoodies (590 Bahts), which I tried and suddenly fell in love with. What I learn mostly from today’s queuing is “patience, tolerance, endurance”, lol! Awaiting my turn for entering to the store, the fitting room or the cashier was hard, and exhausting.  Thank god, they don’t allow the shoppers to try more than 4 pieces in fitting room to avoid overcrowding.  Well,  I had a reality check: I saw a pile of jeans in size 22, probably size 0 in US catalog size system and really envied the person in those sizes. One more thing, the alteration price is  not cheap, it costs 100 Bahts (normal stich) and 200 Bahts (Blind stitch) for the products priced below 790 Bahts and can pick it up the next day. By the way, the staffs are extremely friendly and handy.

Both are interesting: jeans and noodle :)
I love H&M which is not very expensive and has various styles. Japanese version would be more interesting, I guess, as some western versions do not suit with me. Thanks Mon.

ေခ်ာေရ အဲဒါ ေခါက္ဆြဲ ဟုတ္တယ္။ ျပန္ၾကည့္ရင္းနဲ႕ေတာင္စားခ်င္လာျပန္ျပီ ဟီး။

ေက်းဇူးေနာ္ ေဘဘီ သာကူအတြက္။ ေမွ်ာ္ေနတယ္သိလား။

မမေရႊဇင္ ေရ ေစ်းဝယ္တူတူထြက္ၾကရေအာင္။

Iora ေရ တို႕လဲ H&M နဲ႕ Uniqlo ကို ေစ်းသိပ္မၾကီးလို႕ၾကိဳက္တယ္ သိလား။

မမသက္ေဝေရ H&M က အသစ္ေရာက္လာလို႕ရယ္ ေစ်းလဲသိပ္မၾကီးလို႕ရယ္ေၾကာင့္နဲ႕ တူပါတယ္။ ဒီေန႕ Uniqlo ထပ္သြားေတာ့ တန္းမစီရေတာ့ဘူး မမေရ။

ေနာက္တေခါက္ Singapore သြားရင္ Somerset ကဆိုင္ကို စပ္စုလိုက္ဦးမယ္။ Bangkok ကဆိုင္ကပိုၾကီးမယ္ထင္တယ္ ညီမေလးေရ။

ဘယ္လိုဘဲေရာက္လာလာ အခ်ိန္ေပးသြားတာကိုေက်းဇူးတင္ပါတယ္ေနာ္။
