Butik Songkok Masood Hussin, Muar

I married a Muarian, and I’m so thankful for that. I remember the first time I was in Muar, driving around town looking for breakfast. I saw so many shops selling satay.

I love satay, but I don’t eat them in the morning. But that was before. Before Muar became a part of my life. In Muar, satay is an essential part of their breakfast.

And then there’s Mee Bandung and Mee Rebus, not forgetting Kopi 434 and its famous toasted bun with kaya. I could go on and on about food and where to go to get good food and coffee in Muar. There’s so much variety.

Here, one more thing. I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ll say it again: Muar is one of the cleanest towns I’ve ever visited. Kudos to their Municipal Council for that! The people here truly care about their town.

The public parks, Tanjung Emas and Tanjung Ketapang, are beautiful and well-maintained. Tanjung Ketapang is such a great spot for jogging, and I often bring Ashraf here to play.

Okay, where was I? Oh yes, breakfast and satay in the morning. I remember the first such breakfast shop (with satay) I went to was Satay Warisan.

In the same row of shophouses, near Satay Warisan, is Butik Songkok Masood Hussin. That’s how I discovered Butik Songkok Masood Hussin—through food.

Butik Songkok Masood Hussin is a family-run business that has been operating since 1945. Situated on Maharani Street, the boutique is currently managed by the granddaughter of the late Masood Hussin himself, Mrs. Nur Dalila, and her husband, Mr. Zahedy, representing the third generation of the company.

As the eldest granddaughter, Nur Dalila would often accompany her grandfather when he made and sold songkoks at the shop. In 2002, shortly after finishing her studies and two years after her grandfather passed away, Nur Dalila took over the business.

She didn’t plan on carrying on her grandfather’s legacy, but since no one else wanted to continue his work, she decided to do it herself.

At Masood Hussin, you can buy high-quality songkoks and see how they are made. They also have a special product called songkok lipat (foldable songkok).

This songkok can be folded and stored in its casing, eliminating the need for a box. This convenience allows customers to save space while keeping their songkok safe.

In addition to Songkok Lipat, Masood Hussin also offers custom-designed songkoks. Customers can choose the design, colour, and fabric that perfectly match their head size and personal taste.

Apart from custom orders, customers can also choose from pre-made songkoks in standard sizes. Most of the pre-made songkoks are available in black and dark blue colours.

Butik Songkok Masood Hussin is a great place to visit if you are looking for a high-quality songkok or if you want to learn more about the history of this traditional Malay headwear.

The boutique is managed by a warm and knowledgeable family who love what they do. Alongside their beautiful songkok collection, Masood Hussin now has traditional Baju Melayu for men.

While in Muar, don’t miss the chance to try the local food. There are many great restaurants and stalls serving everything from satay to Mee Bandung. You won’t be disappointed!
