modes4u team: Rilakkuma asks……. Bianca

It’s time to introduce our fifth team member. And it’s getting international again, because Bianca moved from Germany to Hong Kong to come to our office every day.

Hello, who are you by the way?
I’m Bianca, 31, from Wuppertal in Germany. One year ago I moved here to Hong Kong and started working at modes4u. It’s still super exciting here; the city is surprising me over and over again. In Germany I lived and worked in different cities, most recently as a public relations officer in a ski dome. Before I was a television editor.

What is your job at modes4u?
I am the copy writer at modes4u and work with words every day. My main task is to add new products to our shop. That means every new item for modes4u.com has to pass my desk first to be measured, weighted and described.

Also I am in charge of the German and English company blogs and constantly looking for new ideas and topics to write about. In addition to that I deal with inquiries from media and journalists. And whenever a text for our website, for an announcement or for another occasion is needed, I write it as well.

What is your favourite product or your favourite category at modes4u?
I absolutely adore our Washi Tapes, which I discovered in our shop for the first time. Before I didn’t even know the cool Masking Tapes existed, now I already own a box full of them. No letter or present leaves my house without at least one stripe of Washi tape decoration.

From all our characters I am a big fan of the cute Otogicco Little Red Riding Hood by Decole. I’m always really excited when we get new products from that series. Also I am profoundly in love with our echino fabrics. Unfortunately I can’t sew at all, so the ways I can use those lovely textiles are kind of limited.

What do you like most about your job at modes4u?
There are no limits to my creativity. I have never worked in such a modern and open company. In Germany I often felt that rules and rigid structures slowed down new ideas. Here in many ways I really have the freedom to do whatever I want creatively. I can try a lot and start new things which I really like.

Our team is totally great too and the bosses really care about the well being of their employees. Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be natural in many Hong Kong companies and I also had mixed experiences in Germany about that. So I really appreciate it and feel in good hands here.

You’re surrounded by creative stuff the whole day. Do you like to craft or to be creative in your leisure time?
My creative activities always have certain phases. At the moment I’m in my Washi Tape phase; I love decorating glasses, stationery and photo albums with the adhesive tapes.

Sometimes I also design my own T-Shirts by embroidering, drawing or just applying an iron-on. In Germany I loved baking cakes and tarts a lot, but this passion is a bit on hold now. Baking is not that common in Hong Kong so a lot of times I lack the needed materials. Still my Chinese colleagues are always very excited when I bring something self-baked every now and then.

Our favourite product of the week: Tea Set

It’s not just an ordinary tea set of course, it’s a super kawaii Little Red Riding Hood tea set consisting of two cups and a teapot. And when you stack everything on top of each other you can see Little Red Riding Hood walking through the forest to her grandma’s house. No further explanation needed to understand why this is our favourite product of the week.

We are crazy about the Otogicco Little Red Riding Hood series from Decole (Japan) anyway, but this item really stole our heart away.

Cute products on Hong Kong’s Groupbuying pages

Groupbuying websites are really in popular in Hong Kong at the moment. There are a lot of different sites that offer special deals where you can save a lot of money for certain products or services, but only if enough people buy it. You really find a lot of offers from restaurants and for beauty products or spas, but we also saw quite a few ones for cute items with our favourite characters.

One of the most interesting things was a deal on the platform Groupon, offering traditional Chinese Turnip Pudding and Red Bean CNY Pudding from Maxim’s cakes in Hello Kitty Style. Those two dishes are a specialty for Chinese New Year, which is starting at the end of January. On other groupbuying platforms we found cute Hello Kitty headphones plugy jacks or even the cute Little Red Riding Hood shopping bag.
