Dear Friends,

Every 3 years, we are subjected to a contract renewal exercise. Come May, when our contract ends, we will not be renewing our contract. A anew operator (Kopitiam) will be taking over the premise and the terms and conditions put forward are unfavorable and unsustainable for us.

We would like to take this chance to thank you, our dear customers, may whom have become our friends, for your supports and patience over the last 12 years! We would not have come this far without YOU!

As we have yet to find a suitable place to relocate our business in the east, we hope that you will follw us on our facebook page – Wild Olives to receive future updates from us.

Thank you once again for being such wonderful customers all these years and we hope to see you when we embark on our new adventure again.
