The Broers Café is a charm­ing lit­tle place. Kiat from Broers Café is a charm­ing great dude. Han is the affa­ble quiet chap. Here, Kiat shares his incred­i­ble pas­sion for the acidic bev­er­age, some of the chal­lenges in set­ting up his own café, and what keeps him going.

Just as I am about to begin on my post, I have real­ized a sort of trend in our recent win­dow posts. They are mostly young Sin­ga­pore­ans com­ing out from their day jobs to set up their own busi­nesses…

We’ve had the chance to talk to a lot of young Sin­ga­pore­ans who’ve cho­sen to walk the road less trav­elled lately, and Lynda Lye, owner of Lit­tle Odd For­est is one of them.

The inter­est­ing trend among these Sin­ga­pore­ans is how they often tell us, “Don’t do what I did,” yet some­where in their jour­neys, there are many nuggets of wis­dom for us (even younger) Sin­ga­pore­ans to learn from and con­tinue to be inspired by.

A wooden, blue aero­plane hangs from the ceil­ing above the door, rock­ing gen­tly to the tune of a warm after­noon breeze. The plane spins lazily, reveal­ing a line of words in neatly painted script; “Woods in the Books”.

We’re sure that many of us still have vivid mem­o­ries of the var­i­ous bit­ter con­coc­tions that our moth­ers would brew, for long hours, when­ever we were sick. Despite our fran­tic attempts to brush off and rebuff their advances, we would even­tu­ally give in and be cajoled into down­ing that nasty-tasting mix­ture. More often than not, we would recover soon enough. Per­haps it’s the awful taste or the lack of sci­en­tific endorse­ment, but as we grew up, we started to drift fur­ther and fur­ther away from tra­di­tional Chi­nese med­i­cine, pre­fer­ring to put our trust in the “tastier” and seem­ingly more effi­cient West­ern med­i­cine instead.
