Many thanks for the feedback. For easy reference, I have reconciled all comments in one page. RM1.40-RM1.50 per skein is the current price selling in Malaysia.
RM1.40 to RM1.45 in Subang and Petaling Jaya
It's RM1.50 in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
In Netherlands, a skein cost 1.35 from the store. However I buy DMC on the Internet for 36 cents a skein.
1.35 ANG = 2.38 MYR

I used to buy it for RM0.40 each DMC skeins ages ago.
I bought it at RM0.50 when I just started cross-stitching about 15 years ago. I remember the label was in gold colour with black colour coding. I still have those in my collection anyway. It costs RM1.40 per skein in Ipoh now.
Here in Seri Iskandar, Peark, I can still find some shops sell DMC thread around RM1.30-1.40. Some shops in Sitiawan sell at RM1.50
In Melbourne DMC thread selling for AUD0.89, about RM2.70
RM1.50 in Bangi. Back in 2005, it was RM1.10 when I was in Kuching
Here in Vietnam one DMC skein is 5000 to 5500 VND now (a little over 1/4 USD). It used to be only 3700 VND per skein just a year ago :(
5500 VND = 0.883556 MYR
its rm1.00 to rm1.20 in kulim,kedah
Where can I find cheaper the RM1.50 per skein?
