Month 2 and beyond: Challenges and milestones.

Month 2 and beyond: Challenges and milestones.

As we step into the second month and beyond, we're excited to share our experiences, challenges, and accomplishments with you. Just like any journey, ours has been filled with unexpected twists and turns, reminding us that the charm of an old heritage building comes with its unique set of challenges.

Dealing with the Deluge: Overcoming Flooding Issues

One of the standout challenges we faced during this month was a recurring flooding issue. While we managed to minimize its impact, heavy downpours still tested our preparations. The age-old building that houses our café adds a rustic charm, but it also reminds us that we need to accept certain issues as part and parcel of its character. Despite these hurdles, we remain committed to providing a cozy and welcoming environment to our patrons.

The essence of our café resides in the delicate balance between preserving the past and embracing the future. The flooding challenges, though testing, remind us that every raindrop is a reminder of our building's character and history. It's a reminder that no matter the obstacle, we're committed to creating an atmosphere where authenticity thrives.

The heritage building we lovingly call home has its quirks, but it also bestows upon us an unmistakable sense of authenticity. While we've managed to wrestle the flooding issue into submission, we're not immune to the torrents of heavy rain. Yet, every droplet is a reminder of the charm that comes with preserving history.

As a testament to our commitment, we decided to temporarily close our doors for a week at the end of September. This brief hiatus allowed us to undertake crucial renovations to combat the persistent flooding issue. We eagerly anticipate a future where the specter of flooding no longer looms over us, allowing us to focus on what truly matters: providing an exceptional experience to our cherished patrons.

Collaboration with Fuankee: A Step Forward in the Keyboard World

Amidst these challenges, we had the privilege of collaborating with Fuankee for the release of the much-anticipated Paperplace keyboard. Although the turnout might not have been massive, the experience was invaluable. It taught us valuable lessons in event planning and preparation, allowing us to better gear up for future keyboard releases. We're firm believers in continuous learning, and this collaboration was a stepping stone in our journey towards keyboard excellence.

Keyboard Adventures: The Molly60 Group Buy

This month marked a significant milestone as we ventured into our very first group buy for the Molly60 keyboard. It was a venture we embarked on with enthusiasm, yet as we progressed, certain considerations emerged that led us to make a tough decision. While we chose not to continue with the Molly60 group buy, this was a clear illustration of our commitment to delivering high-quality products to our customers.

Ensuring Quality and Responsibility

The keyboard community has recently seen its fair share of challenges, as exemplified by the Mech and Co incident. As responsible business owners, we believe that delivering on our promises is of utmost importance. If even the simplest matters, like maintaining exclusivity, cannot be ensured, we understand that it raises concerns about the delivery of products. It's worth noting that this stance isn't a criticism of anyone, and we genuinely wish all the best to Nlandkeys and the Molly60 group buy.

Huge milestone!: Corporate Workshop and Roadshow

At Click and Brew, every day brings new opportunities to grow, learn, and innovate. In the recent months, we've hit some significant milestones that have not only pushed our boundaries but have also been incredibly rewarding.

One of our proudest moments was conducting a workshop for a multinational chip manufacturing company. It was an event that required meticulous planning and dedication, as we were entrusted with the task of imparting knowledge to an audience of a hundred eager minds. The exchange of ideas and the shared enthusiasm left an indelible mark on us, and we're thrilled to have been a part of their learning journey.

Following our success on the local front, we took flight to Singapore for another workshop, this time hosted by a prominent social media company. The change of scenery added a unique flavor to our experience, and it was a fantastic opportunity to connect with a diverse audience. Despite the jet lag and long hours, the smiles on the faces of our participants made it all worthwhile. 

Every workshop we conduct is a chance to refine our skills and enhance our offerings. We've learned valuable lessons from these experiences, and we're committed to improving our workshops to deliver even more value to our participants in the future.

Adding to our list of firsts, we proudly organized our inaugural roadshow. This adventure came with its own set of challenges, but it was a wonderful opportunity to engage with our community outside the confines of our café. We encountered hurdles to overcome and identified areas for growth, all of which will shape our future endeavors.

In Closing: Facing Challenges with Determination

As we conclude this update, we want to emphasize that our journey is defined by both challenges and triumphs. The heritage building we call home brings character and authenticity, but also necessitates adaptability. Our collaborations and ventures in the keyboard world serve as milestones that keep us moving forward. We're dedicated to learning, growing, and creating a space that embodies warmth, innovation, and community.

Thank you for joining us on this journey. Stay tuned for more updates and stories from our café's unique and ever-evolving world. Until next time!
