Business Adventure

KakChik's Wardrobe.
KakChik's Wardrobe. by hanniaziz on Polyvore.com


People are suggesting that I open up an abaya boutique/shop here in my hometown.

Why would they suggest that? Because...
  • they said I love wearing abaya and wear it proudly with confidence
  • I'm like a natural promotion for the said product
  • I already have a few connections either in UAE or in KSA - for stocks
  • friends get influenced by me
  • I'm not fooling around with Islamic fashion
Mainly those are what they always said.

I am giving this suggestion a serious thinking now.

There's this big money issue for capital and right now I'm still paying my debts to my books suppliers and also the moving process of MariBaca Bookstore to a new place. So many tasks to do.

It seems like I'm really interested to branch out into a new business but it would be wise to organize my current business nicely.

Well, please pray for me girls.

That's a good idea. Maybe you can start with a small corner in your bookstore and if it takes off then maybe you can get a real shop.

Kit Pryde said...

Go for it, Kak Chik. I might get something from you (if its within my budget hehehe)

Nor said...

I, for one, will support you wholeheartedly!!

O Allah, bestow upon this friend of mine baraqah in her rizq so that she can branch out soonest and make lots of peoples life easier and happier.....Amiin.

kakchik said...

Nur Amirah - Thanks for the suggestion sis. I am thinking that is the best way to start in my current financial condition. Hopefully you'll be my customer, hehe.

kakchik said...

Kit Pryde - Thank you Kit, insyaallah it will be within your budget. I'm planning for prices between RM60 to RM350.

kakchik said...

Kak An - thanks a lot for your support and doa. I know you'll be happy with this news. Would you like to put some investment in it? Or even better, I'd love to have you as a partner.

kakchik .. I think if you jual the abayas, you should also sell the "malay" ones online for overseas customers. I love those colorful jubah (yang colorful2 mcm baju kurung labuh tapi one piece lah - just get them in PLUS sizes please ;p) from Kelantan ... its so refreshing after all the black abayas I see/wear here (in US). Just a thought. Oh, and I'll definitely buy from you ... insyaallah :)

BARAN said...

kak chik, are you seious? wow... this is really exciting.. then I could get abaya for cheap prices.hehe.

I pray for a great oppurtunity for your bussiness dear. all the best!

Sasha said...

Go for it!!

Kit Pryde said...

Kak chik dear...

wow!!

i want black ones with nice & simple decorations... kinda like the ones in your polyvore. heheheh.

oh btw kakak dear, i think your yahoo act is hacked. got a very weird email from your add.

do get it checked, maybe change your password?

kakchik said...

where.i.am - for the first phase i might not be selling the malay abaya yet because i've seen so many online shops doing that. insyaallah i'll include the malay ones once in a while because my main target is the black abaya. insyaallah when the business grows into phase 2 i'll add a new category. but... i can definitely get a good colourful malay abaya from kelantan if anyone needs help. nak kakchik tolong ke? i won't forget you. thanks for the comment and suggestion. appreciate that.

kakchik said...

baran - yes, i am seriuos. let's pray that i can find good quality abayaat from suppliers that can give me lots of discount so that i can marked a lower price. thanks for the prayer. mmuah!

kakchik said...

Sasha - THANK YOUuuuuu.

kakchik said...

Kit - your requirement is already noted. and yes my yahoo account was hacked. already change the password a few minutes ago. hopefully no more mailer-deamon after this.

UmmikuSayang said...

Salam,

Ya, you can have the boutique as part of your bookshop like we have our UmmikuSayang boutique as part of our ALIMKids Bookshop :-). Sometimes we have mothers buying the clothes and the children buying the books. Insya Allah, it can work. Niatkan untuk mendapat keredhaan Allah...
