Love your tailor

This is priceless! Kudos to BB and Rhymie for coming up with this cartoon. Sorry guys, I just had to filch this and show it off here. This is really really bull's eye.

We are still about, what, some 2 weeks away from the fasting month? In most cases, people will be struggling to their tailors even in the final week of the fasting month that despite all those money that you are willing to pay the Indian tailor or the Philippines seamstress, they are not going to do a special one for you as the amount of tailoring work they have to do by then. So, send your kain early. Save your stress. If you send it in now, then they have more time to do it

I remembered when one of my sister in laws used to run a tailor shop, that shop would struggle for 11 of the 12 months in the year. But the one month they would make money is the fasting month. That's when everyone in the shop sleeps at midnight just to make all the baju rayas. Everybody wants theirs done before Hari Raya. Yet, there will be a few who will not turn up to collect their baju raya. There are always someone who wants a certain kind of cut costing a bomb and yet their clothing material only cost a fraction of the workmanship price. I never understand that.

And by the way, the same goes for Hari Raya cards. Don't forget to sent them off early so you can get the Raya wishes to to you don't have time to greet personally.

It is rather absurd that the Youth Development Centre ("Pusat Pembangunan Belia) -- under the care of Culture, Youth and Sports Ministry through the Youth and Sports Department -- has for donkeys of years been running sewing or tailoring courses as well as hair-cutting or barber courses for Bruneian youths and yet not a single iota of their annual 'graduates' have succeeded in setting up shop or even in taking up jobs in their trained fields! Why?! Since aeons gone by, Bruneian consumers have to be at the mercy of Indian, Filipino, Indonesian or other foreign workers for our needs e.g. hair-cuts or tailored clothes, etc. Ah well, beggars can't be choosy...:(
