Home delivery

Captured in the image above: one of the perks of living here


Taken in our garage the other day, the neigbourhood tailor spent the afternoon working though a bundle of odd sewing jobs. Arriving on his sewing machine-bicycle, he took hemlines up and down, sewed buttons and turned round necks into v necks. Even though this is a common sight and occupation here, to my very western sensibility, it still always feels completely luxurious to have someone deliver this service in your own home!
Indonesia, how will I ever leave you?

That is So Cool!! I mean, obviously the part about having a tailor come to your house is amazing- but on a bicycle with a sewing machine and table attached!? Brilliant!!!!!

yep - it's all those things. So convenient of course and maybe I have gotten used to it but the bike/sewing machine is an amazing concept. My eyes nearly popped out of my head the first time I saw someone riding a bike with sewing machine attached. It's also very communal. Other than in this instance where I had a long list of things to be altered and he came inside the front gate, usually they would just park on the street then everyone lines up with their clothes and has a chat while they wait their turn!
