Useful Pocket-size Tools – Carrefour & Day2Day-Karama

Last week, was at the popular mall – Deira City Centre. Was helping some visitors from India shop around at Carrefour. My eyes fell upon these tiny tools priced at Dhs.9.50/- each.

A sucker for pocket-sized tools, I instantly grabbed them up….I also photograped the entire package and contents to share them with you:

1) DIY of Chicago Tools – 6-in-1 Screwdriver set


2) 5-in-1 Mini Multi Tool

This tool came with a neat little pouch and key ring. Wish the 6-in-1 came with a key ring too!





3) 9 Function Stainless Steel Pocket Knife

Picked this up at the Day 2 day Dime (Dhs.2/-) shop at Karama. Yup…this costs just Dhs.2/- at piece. There was one more bigger one with 13 functions – preferred the smaller one though.



Useful Stuff at the Japan Home Centre, Khaleej Centre, Bur Dubai

The new Japan Home Center caught my eye as I walked out of the Etisalat Business Centre at the Al Khaleej Centre, Bur Dubai after paying my phone bill. Remembering Daiso at the Lamcy Plaza, I was curious to see how different the JHC was.

Most of the products seemed to be original Japanese with prices starting from Dhs.5 onwards. Found some interesting stuff too but I leave it upto you to visit them and judege. Picked up their flyer (scan below) which has their location map. Also took a photo of the store.

Today I tried googling them and found their Hong Kong website. They seem to be focusing more on quality and niche products rather than Daiso’s Walmart approach.
