but i've always gone back to the traditional indian barbers. besides the resulting nice clean look, some of them provide a shoulder rub/massage as well.
but when i got older, i realised they were generally more expensive than some others, because they were members of a barbers' association where the prices were fixed. currently a simple cut costs rm9.
because of that, i've stopped patronising them as other non-members charge cheaper. no, i'm not too much into the classy cut-wash-and-blow type, operating in the malls with a fancy shop-name. no, i just want a clean cut.
and i'll shave myself, thank you!
my son goes to the same shop where the wife gets her hair done. his cut costs rm5. so when my regular guy told me he's hiked his price from rm6 to rm8, after all these years of loyal patronage, i decided to jump ship.
except now it doesn't matter who snips, as long as it's a clean cut &
cheap reasonably priced.
just like how my father taught me; a legacy i'm passing on to the boy.
