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…and what we are featuring today is no different! After meeting with these people and listening to their stories, I have been feeling rather inspired lately. I hope you feel the same way too.
Today, we are featuring CrazyWorld Cafe. Personally, I feel that it is a tad different from the other places which we have done though the owners are YOUNG like the rest. CrazyWorld Cafe seems to be made up of the little pieces from the other places with some plus plus features. So let’s say that if you like to read those unique quirky storybooks, buy local designers’ merchandise, listen to live band music or even simply just like to eat and chill, then this is the place for you! In fact, what CrazyWorld Cafe has, can be found on their website but allow me to tell you why I have grew a fond liking of this place.
So Lizzy and I had an awesome chat with the owners, Florence and Edgar, and we had the opportunity to understand more about them and the cafe. They are extremely down- to- earth and modest people who have taken time off to share their stories with us. Apparently, we were their last interview of the day but yet they still portrayed enthusiasm and passion throughout the process. Kudos to you all guys for entertaining our questions!
To those who are familiar with May Day, an insanely popular Taiwanese band in the Mandopop scene, the café is named after one of their songs. And obviously, Florence and Edgar are huge fans of theirs and I guess that is their favorite song which talks about dreams and finding a place that one belongs. Having and believing in dreams is something which the couple stands by strongly and this cafe is their shared dream.
They have big dreams for the cafe, seeing it as a platform to promote and push out aspiring singers in the local Mandarin music scene. I supposed this is largely inspired by their love of music.
Florence and Edgar have a philosophy for their cafe which I thought speaks true about themselves and what they want to achieve. Unfortunately, it is in Chinese and our website settings does not seemed to like it very much but I shall attempt to translate it anyway. My apologies if the translation does not capture its true essence. Here goes:
We are not just a cafe, We are more than just a cafe.
We sell no coffee nor snacks, but simply a feeling.
We wish to bring you to a place of joy,
one where dreams are made and fulfilled,
and one which allows you to step away from the world you’re living in.
We hope you will find yourself here, your real self,
the inner wild side of you.
Just so you know, the media launch of our Unseen/Unsaid mini series will be held in CrazyWorld Cafe on the 28th of June, 2011! Find out more about it in the coming days.
