Kisah tailors sempena raya

You know how most tailors refused to take any more order when it's nearing Ramadhan? For the past couple of years, I always had problem with tailor-made outfits for Eid. So this time, I prepared the clothes earlier than previous years. That's like almost 2 months before Ramadhan. But it turned that I was still late and it was so tough finding tailors to sew 2 of my cloths.

One of my favorite tailor agreed to take only 1 cloth, so in the end I went to the tailor where I send  all my cloths when no other tailors would take them. Well, reason being, though the clothes she sew is absolutely stunning, this tailor charge quite high according to our standard. Hence, it's the big guy's least fave tailors of them all! Haha.

I've had bad experience with these 2 tailors last year, when they didn't managed to complete my baju on time. And I had to spend the raya eve chasing after these tailors. So this time I hatched a brilliant plan by telling them I need it by the end of July because I need to send them for beading works!

The 1st tailor did not tell me exactly when my clothes would be ready but she said she would call. I wasn't too worried with that one because I don't plan to send it for beading though I told her otherwise. And as per promised, she ringed me just couple of days back to tell that my baju is all ready. Hip hip Horay!

But now. I wish I could say the same about the 2nd tailor. But this capik lady (she's well-known as Tailor Capik) did not completed my baju on time, as per her promise. We had to go to her shop a couple of times just to get to see her. And had to call her millions of times before I got to know that she still hadn't started on my baju. The big guy almost chopped that lady head's off when we went to her shop the other day. Luckily I was around to hold him back. Hehehe.

Then yesterday as I was talking to future SIL, I got to know that she sent her cloth to the very same tailor. It was supposed to be ready on the same day as mine but it didn't. AND she promised that our clothes would be ready by today, MONDAY! Sigh! Are all tailors like this? Especially during the festive season. They will wait until we come to collect our baju and only then tell us that no, our clothes are not yet really so could you come again some other time? Bollocks!

Now the big guy has blacklisted the capik tailor from my list of tailors. I guess now I have to start finding other tailors that I'm comfortable with, just in case tailor No.1 refuse to take my order in the future.

Menyusahkan lah tailor-tailor nih!
