People love to tote the saying, “Sharing is caring.” Unfortunately, sometimes the other party doesn’t care enough to look after our things. It’s bad enough when things get damaged. When someone refuses to take responsibility? It gets even worse.
Former Miss Hong Kong participant Ceci Mak Sze Ching (麥詩晴) was recently accused of damaging a dress loaned to her by a bridal shop. The company in question claimed she is refusing to compensate it. However, Ceci took to Instagram yesterday (30th November) to explain her side of the story.
A Hong Kong bridal shop released an Instagram post yesterday to rant about a certain celeb. According to the post, they had lent some of their pieces to the artist. Unfortunately, two days later, they discovered that a dress had been damaged. The shop approached the artist to ask for compensation. However, she refused, citing the dress had been undamaged when she returned it.
The shop lamented that they had trusted the artist as she had been introduced to them by a friend. “(Making this) post to remind (myself) not to make this mistake again,” the post stated. No names were mentioned, but a photo of the artist with the borrowed dress was released. The shop did take care to censor her face. However, Miss Hong Kong 2020 participant Ceci Mak deleted some photos of her in a similar dress after the news broke.
Ceci later addressed the issue on her Instagram to share her side of the story. The former Miss Hong Kong participant clarified that she had not found any damage to the dress when she returned it. “When the shop took back the (dress), it did not ask me any questions and the delivery was completed,” she stated. So, it was a surprise when the shop later contacted her saying the dress was damaged.
“If any damage is found on the day of return, I must compensate immediately, because it is really my responsibility,” Ceci wrote. However, she stated it had been a few days since she returned the dress. The artist reasoned that other people may have handled the dress since then, and any one of them may have damaged the dress unknowingly.
The artist claims she has received harassment over the incident. It was to the point where she felt pressured to delete photos of the dress. “In this regard, I deeply feel the importance of dealing with problems rationally, so I made the above clarifications, hoping that things can come to an end,” she said.
Both parties seems to be at their wits end about the matter. Neither one is willing to admit the other is wrong and it seems unlikely they will come to a compromise. Both Ceci and the shop however, want the matter to end.
Well, this may be a learning moment for both groups. Hopefully, the shop will take extra care when lending their pieces next time! As for Ceci, she’ll probably take measures to maintain her innocence if she ever borrows clothes again.
