Kerol from Musotrees came down to PBUY & Drinka Store to share his photography journey from travelling all around the world. A discussion within small group on the culture in every place; how does it grow and its community ecosystem between Asia and Europe, Kashmir and Copenhagen. Apart from that, the discussion was continued by Munir from Misi Mencari Melayu which he discussed on the history of Malay in the northern part of Peninsular Malaysia, Southern Thai and Myanmar in the context of language and cultural in their ancestor land.
The presence of Munir and Kerol has become an intercultural talk based on the social context between Malay and other societies from the other parts of the regions. The comparison itself has envisioned the loophole between the reservation of heritage cultural and economy atmosphere, especially on working hours differences between Malaysia and Denmark.
Having Musotrees at PBUY & Drinka Store however has opened a wider bright idea to recognize how important the appreciation towards nature and own culture. However, the core value of the discussion is the passion of doing a job that we tend to do. I definitely agree by working on what we are keen to do as long as how much endeavors we are willing to put on ourselves will make us happier rather than working 9 to 5. Speaking of passion, Kerol has published 6 books of Musotrees in total and he’s been doing it all by himself including the marketing and management role. The discussion was very exchangeable with thoughts while inflicting delightful ideas in case of having any collaboration in the future.
Adam Jalaludin, the owner of PBUY & Drinka Store told us that most of the circle of friends who frequently crash over at the shop are mostly doing their own career. For instance, Ikhwan Aiman, the founder of streetwear label called Almost Quaint; Nizar Nazri, a collector who founded Sarap Store; Jojo, a toy collector who running his own shop Kolek which located at the opposite of PBUY&Drinka Store; Amir Hamzah, the graffiti artist for Kadiak; Omar Hussain, a translator and art analyst for Teratak Nuromar and few others to name. Therefore, the shop itself became the main hub for friends to meet up or as a getaway spot from the preoccupied working matters. Indirectly, the shop has becoming as a meeting place for people from inter-discipline area and at the same time, discussions regardless of philosophy, art, business, current issues and so on have took place since its opening days in late 2017. Hence, the variety of people at the shop resulting with a lot of ideas and building the connections together and simultaneously creating the landscape of collectivism on its own.
