Chinese Pool Challenge in the office

Today we got a Chinese Pool Table for our office and immediateley had to have a little game during our lunch break. Chinese Pool is very popular among teenagers and young people in Hong Kong and very similar to Pool Billard – it’s all about shooting little pucks into the 4 holes on the table using a cue. There are many different ways to play it and it’s really fun, as you learn it very fast. Even Bianca and I, who have never played it before, scored some points. We had a fun time playing it and had to drag ourselves back to work after lunch. But there is much to do at the moment, as we got new deliveries, e.g. new Japanese Washi Tapes, that we want to add to our online shop as soon as possible.

New office pictures on our ‘About us’ site

It’s been a couple of months since we moved into our new office in Fo Tan, Hong Kong. Now we finally got round taking some new pictures of our warehouse and office, so that you guys can get an impression of how we are working over here. We really like this new place, especially as we have much more space than in our old office. The office is divided into the packing section where we pack all your orders, a photo studio to take good pictures of all our products, an office part for our staff and of course our big warehouse – the most important part. But as you can see, most of the shelves are already filled up with our products. Especially fabrics take up a lot of room and we will be getting even more of them in the next couple of weeks.

You can also find all the pictures on our ‘About us’ website, which we updated these days and where we introduce our team as well. We recently added a picture of Bianca, our new team member from Germany who is doing copywriting and PR for us.

Moving our office and warehouse

This weekend we were moving our office from Kwai Fong to Fo Tan. It took us 3 days to move because we had so much stuff, especially so many products to move. We also had to be very careful with packing the products to make sure nothing gets broken, bent or crushed. It was a really exhausting weekend but we finally made it. Thanks to all our friends who helped us moving, without them we couldn’t have done it. Now we have a much bigger office and warehouse with lots of space for new cute products for our shop 🙂 Here are some pictures I took during our move:

Looking for a new office

Our office lease is almost finished and we are looking for a new, bigger place to rent. We were checking out many places, most were unacceptable because too dirty/ugly/old or too overpriced. It is really hard to find a suitable, nice looking office in Hong Kong. Rent is ridiculously high in Hong Kong and the office quality often pretty poor. However, today we were lucky and found the right place. It is in Fo Tan, an industrial district of Hong Kong and conveniently located near the highway and the train station. The office is 3 times as big as our current office but we really need the bigger space. Here are some pictures we took today:

New Japanese stationery by San-X

I wrote a couple of days ago that we received a new delivery from Japan. Finally, we finished adding all products to our shop. It took us very long this time because we had a few other deliveries at the same time and had to take literally hundreds of photos and write descriptions for all those products. You can imagine, that is a lot of work. But we are finally done and all San-X stationery is available online in our kawaii shop. There are lots of new plastic file folders, cute letter sets, pencil cases and pouches, pencils, rulers and bento boxes:

New Office pictures

Today we took some new pictures of our office and warehouse because it changed quite a bit and lots of new products have arrived since the last photos were taken. I love looking at pictures with lots of cute products in them. I also want to show where we work and how our place looks like. This way we can make our business a bit more personal for our customers and you know who is behind this cute online shop. Here are some pictures of our warehouse:

cute Christmas header for our shop

We designed three really cute Christmas header for our kawaii shop. One design is with little black cats and a Christmas tree, another one is with kawaii animals in Christmas stockings and the third one is with some children playing with snow. Those 3 headers rotate randomly in our shop. So you may see a new shop header every time you look at a new page in our shop. I hope you like them as much as we do.
