Malay Salon vs Non-Malay Salon


must be great to have queen latifah blowing my hair..


Most of my days at home are spent with my mom, cooking, watching mexican drama, gossiping and being her chauffeur (not driver)..so one day while waiting her at Menang Glassware, i decided to trim my hair at the next door salon as it gets dried and split at the ends. It was not just a salon, it also have spas, facial treatment, and also beaty product stockist. So i think bagusla ade kedai Melayu mcm ni.. So, here what i can conclude..

Malay Salon

when i ask
kedai bukak x?
the assistant aswered
bukak..(while sitting on the couch checking her nails doing nothing)

Non-Malay Salon

i dont have to ask
they automatically approach me even i didn't mean to come in..
please sit..nak potong ke atau nk buat ape...(smiling..)

Malay Salon

still wait to be entertain..
sory ye..boss kat kedai seblah beli pinggan..kejap saye panggil..

Non-Malay Salon

I want to trim my hair
Trim saje? You cuci n blow skali lah..

Malay Salon

Nak trim rambut..
Ok..

Non-Malay Salon

Miss, rambut u very thinla..u xmau cuba our tonic ke shampoo ke or hot oil..bagus tau..

Malay Salon

Dik,rambut awk ni nipisla kenape?
gugurla kak..
pakaila shampoo baby..

(then her phone rang..leave my hair and answer it..quarrel with her boyfriend for a couple of minutes..shouting, maki2 sume..ring again quarrel again..off the phone and a second phone after a few times quarreling..)

org laki ni memang kene ajar sikit dik..xboleh dibagi muke...ambik kau due2 phone aku off..geram aku dgn jantan ni tau..

(after that telefon kedai pulak bunyik...)

tgk tu die telefon kedai plak..bencinya akuu..!!! malas aku nak layan..mampos engkau..biar assistant yg layan..

Non-Malay Salon

I never saw any phone except the office phone and when there's a call its something like..
ya ya u can come..my shop is open..

Malay Salon

when I ask..

ade..
brape ek?
pnjg rambut adik ni rm180
eh murahnye..
kat sini mmg murah..
ooo..perming buat kak?
buat tu buat dik tp takut xberape cantikla..xmahir sgt..
sini ade pluck eyebrow?
ade..
brape?
4ringgit je..
eh murahnyee..!
mmg murah..

Non-Malay Salon

when i ask..
sini ade buat straightening?
ade2..u mau buat ke? straightening or rebonding, gune papan or foil, or u mau try perming pulak..u punya rambut kalau kasi perm bawah manyak cantik miss..or u xmau colour ke miss..kasi brownish sikit..
it's okay..i survey je..u pluck eyebrow?
ade buat..kejap saje x sakit punya..u mau buat ke?

Malay Salon

my mom come in

belom jap eh..
mak eh?
aah

Non-Malay Salon

my mom come in
dah long?
belom..jap eh..
ur mom aa miss?
yup..
ask my mom..
kakak, u xmau gunting skali u punya anak ke?

Malay Salon

brape kak?
3ringgit je dik..

Non-Malay Salon

how much?
8ringgit..u xmau our hair oil ke miss..2ringgit satu tube..bagus punya kasi moisturise ur hair..or u try la our shampoo kasi rambut u lebat sket..blablabla....

notice the difference..? no promotion, suggestion or any business oriented conversation when i was in the Malay Salon.

I'm not being a racist.I AM a malay.and if i've been given a choice obviously i'll go to the Malay
salon.i dont have to spent more money. my mom said..."That's why org melayu xramai boleh buat business..."
ade ma..tp diorg bukan typical malay macam yg tadi tula...tapi bagus jugak ma..xmembazir duit kite..lain kali pegi kedai tu lagilah..hehe

yess..typical malay..most of succesful Malay is not a typical one..so i'm trying not to be one..not only in business..but also in everything...


starting to miss her already..
