Lawyer Opens Mod Kopi & Toast Hawker Stall, Part Of Her Earnings Go To Refugees
The 27-year-old juggles lawyering with being a hawker & do-gooder.
Month-old modern coffee and toast stall Mad Roaster at Amoy Street Food Centre looks like your typical millennial business with its trendy lamps and a pink espresso machine. Except this is a small social enterprise, and its owner, Madeline Chan, 27, a part-time lawyer at a mid-sized local firm. She juggles a day job with baking and barista duties here, working overtime to generate income for displaced refugees in Thailand. She does almost everything herself — from baking loaves of brioche daily, to frothing lattes for her assorted coffee drinks.
It helps that she has a very understanding boss who allows her to work out of the office — so during lull periods at the hawker centre, she whips out her laptop to work.
