I booked a caterer in mid of November for my reception in June. Sudah bayar deposit. Days later, she (the cp from the caterer service) called to let me know that they don't dissapear with the money. Grateful.
Months went by. Senyap. Since the big day is just around the corner, I called her up in early February. She claimed "Susah nye nak call awak and abah awak dik...akak risau sangat!". Apakah??? Kami tukar number kah?
So we finally had our meeting which turns out she arrived late by 2 hours. The reason so is because she had another meeting with another client earlier that day, and couldn't comunicate with me because she had problems with her handphone. Takpe, so we discussed on the event, food, also table settings and some decors. She said, full quotation to be send via email by latest 2 days from the day we had our meeting. Also we scheduled our next meeting to today, 18th Feb 2010.
Last noon, I called up to remind her of the meeting and she was at Sunway Lagoon with her kids. I asked about the promised overdue quotation that she never sent, and she apologized for being so busy. I thought I heard wrong when she said she's at Sunway Lagoon. This time, she couldn't contact me because she lost her handphone and her purse as well. She just make a police report regarding her lost IC and went to Sunway Lagoon straight away. Ok, I told her to send me the quotation latest by that night so that I can discuss with my parents and prepare for tomorrow's meeting with her. A double promises she gave.
Today, we suppose to have a meeting at 11 am and I still have not received the quotation. This early morning, I received a sms from her saying that she could not commit the meeting today because she had an emergency and had to rush back to Johor last night. She also said, "sorry, kita jumpa Sabtu ni ya". Says who I'm available on Saturday? Adakah I kena ikut her schedule sekarang ya?
I don't know. Perhaps I'm just being paranoid. I'm just affraid of she not being able to turns up during my big day nanti. Or maybe when I pay her 50% nanti, and ends up I could not get through her at all. I heard some brides have bad experience with caterers and that really scares me hell out.
