We will be launching our first Yuan soap store in Malaysia. Venue? Central Market!
Okay, not many were excited when I told them about the venue, but please do make your way to CM (Central Market) now. I was surprised with the changes when I went there to check out the store a few months ago. I have not been to CM for ages and the current management has been quietly "cleaning up" the whole place. I saw new tiles, shops and stalls are tidier. And where should we not make our mark but in the baby blue powder building where they promote all things traditional and handmade?!
A friend from Taiwan, who has been visiting Malaysia for the last 10 years were not brought to visit CM at all by her friends! She mentioned CM was just like Jiufen (similar concept like CM but outdoor with great scenery), she was so delighted she bought 8 shawls from different stalls. Ok, maybe she was ignorant not to read any of our tourism pamphlets or surf the net for info, or we as Malaysia has not done enough to promote other places of interest except for KLCC, lol!
Ok, back tot the store, well, I was busy arranging soaps on the shelves but was distracted many times by tourists who asked me what was smell in the shop? Apparently, our nice smelling soaps have been quietly directing people to visit our shop. I have to keep informing passerbys that we are not open yet!
Here are some sneak peek to our new store!
