Steam iron

max and collection

This is Max & Collection in Jalan Song Thian Cheok. It’s the one
with the nifty fiber optic light box controlled sign board. Max &
Collection is an apparel franchise and I went there to get my Huygens
Asia shirt steam ironed after setting up our booth today. I don’t have
an iron. I’ve never felt the need for combs, irons, shampoo…things
which I consider superfluous. However, I wanted to iron the company
shirt for the first day of the expo tomorrow, since it wrinkles without
ironing.

Anyway, if you’re wondering, no, it’s not standard practice to waltz
into a shop and get personal items ironed over here…the Max &
Collection chain of shops in Kuching is another business that Alex, my
CTO owns. He was kind enough to go with me after I told him about my
company shirt wrinkle woes. Now, I’ve seen steam irons before, but I’ve
never used one and I managed to experiment with one today.

Most apparel shops have one of these…it’s used to iron the
articles of clothing after customers wrinkle them. I had a bit of a
trouble operating it at first, but I must say, this is a handy device –
it’s ready to go after a short warm up period, and you just need to
hang the item you want to iron on a hanger and run the steam iron over
it. However, I have to say that I’m not a big fan of ironing, which is
why I like no-iron wrinkle free shirts and T-shirts (which doesn’t
wrinkle anyway).

I wanted to try the steam iron but I didn’t expect one article of
clothing to take so long to straighten so I only ironed one of my two
company shirts. I’m going to bring the un-ironed one to AT & A
tomorrow and get it ironed by someone there and buy them lunch in
return.

This is a photo of me (in the infamous red T-shirt), Alex and one of the sales personnel.
Naturally, I asked the most aesthetically pleasing one to come into the shot. ;)

I learnt that the only way to avoid an ironed shirt from wrinkling
again is to told it properly like a coat. I gingerly held it by the
collar and I’m happy to report that the shirt is still wrinkle free. :)

Tomorrow will be the first day of the ICT 2004. Who’s going? I still
haven’t eaten, so I’m likely to starve to death if no one comes bearing
food.

Okay, today is crashdown day, I can barely stop myself from falling
asleep on the keyboard…will reply all comments tomorrow. :)
