dear folks and beloved friends,
from 22 November 2009 onwards, casual poet the store will stop operating and will be closed for an indefinite period of time, as we focus our effort on developing our label / studio, casual poet culture.
we would like to thank all of you (and i really mean ALL OF YOU, YOU, YOU, YOU, YOU......) for your sincere and real support over the last two years. it's been the greatest two years of our lives making coffee and washing dishes and having heartfelt conversations with so so so many of you. (this feels like a star awards moment!)
no, of course we didn't make tonnes of money running this little space. and yes, we washed countless dishes, went to the market like your regular auntie, bargained with vegetable-sellers, mopped and cleaned and worked 7-day-weeks sometimes, but you know what, we still think that it's worth it.
and if you ask me, i think it's the people we met that makes it worth it. you know who you are. thank you, i love you!
in the days to come, we will continue to support and promote independent culture in Singapore. we will be working as hard, if not harder, as before. we will continue to dream. we will continue to strive for magic.
in the next two weeks, feel free to come by our store to say goodbye to this little space. one day, if and when we find an even more suitable space, we will reopen the doors of our little cafe.
in the meantime, please look out for our exciting new projects!
(and yes, we will still be updating this blog!)
