modes4u team: Rilakkuma asks……. Lok

It’s time to introduce another one of our staff members to you in our new blog series. This month you’ll get to know Lok – one of our packing staff – a bit better.

Hello, who are you by the way?

I’m Lok. I’m 24 years old and was born in Hong Kong. I love everything yellow and adore food, so Hong Kong is the right place for me, as there are hundreds of restaurants with different kind of food. Before I started working at modes4u I was working in the jewelry industry. Although I’m still pretty young, I am the “oldest” employee at modes4u, because I started working here in 2010.

What is your job at modes4u?
Together with my colleague Karen I am responsible for everything that is connected to sending the packages: I pick the products for the different orders from our warehouse, pack them and prepare the postal formalities. I also cut the fabrics from the big bolts for all the fabric orders that we get every day. And of course I go to the post office every evening with all the packages to mail them all over the world. So my job is very active, I am up on my feet and moving all day long.

What is your favourite product or your favourite category at modes4u?
Yellow is my favourite colour, so I like all the yellow products in our shop. The yellow Kiiroitori chick from the Rilakkuma family is really cute.
And since we got quite a few clay books which show pictures of clay craftings, I am also quite interested in this. Until now I have just crafted some little clay items, but the pictures are really inspiring and I love to look at them.

What do you like most about your job at modes4u?
We are a really cool team. Everybody helps each other and is really nice. The atmosphere in the team is great, everybody is working hard, but still we laugh a lot and have fun at the office. Plus the products are so lovely. I really enjoy picking them, and sometimes I’m really surprised when I pick new products that I haven’t seen before.

You’re surrounded by creative stuff the whole day. Do you like to craft or to be creative in your leisure time?
I really love to craft and to try all kinds of different styles. In Hong Kong you can get most crafting accessories super cheap so that’s a great opportunity to experiment and find out what you like. I sometimes craft jewelry like earrings and also like to sew little accessories and pouches. But my latest obsession is leather crafting. I have visited a class where I learned how to work with that material and already made all kinds of things.
