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

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

Naturally, I asked the most aesthetically pleasing one to come into the shot. πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ™‚

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

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