It has been a trend and craze nowadays to see many displays of fake potted plants at the shops and restaurants. They look cool and nice to liven up any dull corners to look chic & trendy. It got me interested as my wife had a recent makeover at home to inject some new life at home. I think she threw away 1 ton of rubbish and old books. My only part was to think of adding potted plants to brighten up the place. I do not want to worry about watering plants when we go on travels.
I have been shopping for fake plants over the last 2 weeks. Honestly, I had a terrible fright to see the prices of nice plants at SSF and IKEA where they easily cost over RM50 per stalk!! Good things don't come cheap! I being a Penang born kiam-siap clan sure had to find innovative ways. This TOMEI shop is located at Jalan Masjid India in KL! Yes, I was there on Sunday with all the crowded Banglas, Indons and foreign workers jostling and rubbing each other's sweaty bodies! Wakakaka It was fun dei.
Take a peek at my green potted plants lining on the top of my wife's book shelves.
I found that that the cheapest porcelain pots in town are definitely from DAISO which costs only RM5.90 each. They come in several pastel colours too. Other places are selling from RM9.90 up to RM18.00 which sounds like robbery to me!
I went to SSF, Daiso, IKEA and a "2 Ringgit Shop"! The above are from SSF (RM9.90 Eucalyptus) Tomei (RM6.90 Lavender) and Two Ringgit Shop (RM2.12 each stalk /Unnamed plants)
Dua Ringgit Shop (Daiso Pot RM5.90 & Dua Ringgit Plant RM2.12 )
Ikea (Ikea Pot RM9.90 & Ikea Plant RM14.90)
These 2 pots are inside my bathroom now.
