The Choo Yilin Interlude: FAQ
Q: Why is Choo Yilin going on hiatus?
A: Choo Yilin is taking a hiatus to reflect, and build the infrastructure for the next chapter of this journey of love, heritage and becoming. We’ve shared more about this on our post, Choo Yilin Interlude: Pressing Pause.
Q: Is Choo Yilin going on hiatus because of financial reasons?
No, Choo Yilin is not going on hiatus because of financial reasons. We are grateful that we have been profitable every year of operations. Rather, the self-funded organisational structure that has carried us through ten years of healthy financials and growth has to undergo radical change to drive the company’s next phase of growth and expansion. We’ve shared more about this in the “Why” section of our post, Choo Yilin Interlude: Pressing Pause.

A: Yes! Choo Yilin will be back, building on the guiding principles that have led us thus far. We cannot wait to continue this journey with you in the next decades and many more to come.
