There's a lot of art and soul involved.
#1: Sip on hipster-approved coffee!
Can’t make it to Melbourne? One specialty coffee e-tailer will bring hipster-ville to you — and throw in a free artisan cuppas as well.

Any self-respecting freebie-loving Singaporean will anticipate long queues, so go early. Go to https://www.facebook.com/events/335374800198677/ for updates.
