Youtube video by a customer

Today I discovered a Youtube video by one of our customers talking about the products she ordered in our online shop. The video is in German, but basically what she is talking about is, how cute those products are πŸ˜‰ She bought a Tenshi Neko bag, bento box, cutlery set, a memo pad,Β a Rilakkuma bag and Hello Kitty instant noodles from us. We didnt sponsor this video and I just accidentally found this video today (I was googling for “modes4u”). You can image how surprised I was to find a Youtube fan video about our products. πŸ™‚

My Husband quit his job

Today my husband finally quit his fulltime job as a Project Manager in a IT department. We are so super busy with our online shop modes4u.com and our wholesale business so we decided it is time for him to quit and join my business. We were planning this for a long time and the day has finally come. He will join me on 1st of October 09 and at the beginning he will write lots of new small software programs for us to make our work easier, more efficient and especially faster. There are a lot of work steps that are really time consuming and repetitive so this software should help us with that. He will also take care about our shop and write some new cool functions for it. I can’t wait for him to start working with me together in our office. It will be lots of fun πŸ˜‰

More Pics from the new office

Some people asked me to add more pics of the office after our move was finished. So I took some pics today in my office and you can see them below. As you may recognize, there is still some empty space. We plan to buy some more shelves as we are buying more and more products and expand our stock. We will also buy 1-2 tables for my husband to work here and for taking pictures of our products.

Our new office 2009 !!!

We moved during the weekend to our new office which is just 1 floor below our old one. So it was quite easy and not too much work to carry the things downstairs but still lots of packing involved. And I hate packing! I rather unpack and organize the new office than pack the things in the old office. Therefore my husband did the packing and moving and I did the unpacking. On sunday his family showed up and helped us. That was so nice. They said “We are family, of course we help” in their broken English πŸ˜‰ I just love them. Below you can see some pic of our new office while it was still empty. I also added a video of the office which also shows the very nice view we have now.

250th order

We got our 250th order in our online shop www.modes4u.com yesterday. The 250th order is from a customer in Seattle, USA. Thank you so much for all your support and trust!

It took only 34 days to get to the 250th order from the 200th order. The last 50 orders took 42 days. We are increasing our orders constantly, I am super happy about that. When will we hit the 300 order – mark? I guess in around 30 days.

We will get a new office!

I signed the contract for the lease of a new office last evening. Wow, it happened so fast. My husband’s auntie, who is a property agent, called us a few days ago and said that there are some offices available in the area of our current office. Of course I agreed to check them out in the hope to get a better deal. And I really did find one. It is a bit smaller, but the area is much more useful because it doesn’t have a long corridor like the current one (which just wastes space and therefore money). The standard is much better because it was just renovated, so everything is new and clean. The whole office is very bright and I have a great view over Kwai Fong. It’s cheaper too πŸ˜‰ And the best part: the new office is just one floor below the current one, but facing a different direction!!! How cool is that! We only need to move one floor down. I can’t wait to move into the new, bright office at the end of this month.

Here you can have a look at my new office:
