Hello! I am Nurul from Malaysia.
From a convenience store elaborate welcoming ritual to the hotel’s nearly uncanny sense of meeting guest needs, Japan could be said has perfected the culture of hospitality. The land of the rising sun’s impressive service culture is acknowledged by the world.
Thanks to Malaysian Fourth Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir vision which is “Look East Policy”, Malaysian people has long before admires Japan work ethic and culture. Japanese product and services are also well accepted and are even listed in the wish list! So what are the 3 most wanted Japanese products and services in Malaysia. Let’s have a look, shall we?
Aeon is not only famous in Japan, but also in Malaysia. Previously, goes by the name Jaya Jusco, Aeon is well known among Malaysian residents. Anything you want from A to Z is available at Aeon Shopping Centre. Jusco is one of the government efforts in “Look East Policy” which results in joint corporations between Aeon Company Japan to further enhance and modernize the retail service in Malaysia. Aeon is the best leading retailer in Malaysia. Their recent accomplishment is Carefour take over which are now called Aeon Big. “Daiso”, “the 100 yen shop” or were called the “RM5 shop” in Malaysia are also most wanted. The competitor, Hinode is beginning to lose their popularity to Daiso. Due to the abundance of creative and fun product sold, Daiso has gain place in the heart of Malaysian.
Among male driver in Malaysia, nearly all of them are a fan of Japanese Built Car. Named it, Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Honda and others, all of it are the favorite among guys and Mazda are exceptionally famous among women! Even though Japanese vehicles are very expensive in Malaysia, due to the tax applied, “Initial D” is not a factor that can make the car “otaku” ignore the huge price they need to pay and worship the car to the point of calling them “Wifey”. The factors that matter here are definitely because of the high quality and the car awesome technical performance. To nominate just one brand as the most wanted is definitely a crime!
3. Beauty Product
Deem as an exclusive beauty product and maintain on top of the wish list of almost every women. SKII is a dream beauty product to behold!! This product are also somehow magically managed to attract metrosexual male consumer. The secret key, “pitera” is founded in the “sake” brewing factory. Act as anti-aging and can make the skin become smooth, fairer and younger looking, which are scientifically proven effectives are probably the factor that gains it trust from consumer. However, due to the expensive price, some can only admire from far and keep putting an effort to put a hand on these exclusive items. Perhaps, that is also one of the factors for why it is called a miracle, as miracle is not easy to obtain and is a rare occurrence.
To be able to experience Japanese services culture somehow can be considered as paradise on earth. The feeling that we get from the working staff which is full with courtesy, respect and honesty are priceless and heart-warming. Hopefully, Japan Service Culture will continue to survive in this modernization and westernization era and remain sacred and full of arts.
