We can’t think about anything but Christmas. Why? Because our warehouse and office are getting stocked with products for Christmas season 2014 nearly every day. So our big office Rilakkuma made a small Christmas tree with the cute San-X boxes. Isn’t that a great Christmas tree for a warehouse?

Introducing our new San-X plush team members

Welcome our new team members! You already know our gigantic office Rilakkuma mascot that is like 165cm tall. He now has many brothers and sisters, because we received big plush mascots of many San-X characters. We do not sell them in our shop, they will guard the modes4u office and you will see them a lot on our blog and Facebook. They are not as big as the 165cm Rilakkuma bear, but still pretty big! We have mascots of Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori, Kutusita Nyanko, Mamegoma, the shy cat and penguin of Sumikkogurashi and rabbit Shappo of Sentimental Circus. Which one is your favourite?

Welcome our big new San-X office mascots!

modes4u team: Rilakkuma asks……. Burton

Burton has been working in our warehouse for a while now, we just never got around to introducing him properly. So let’s get to know him better.

Hello, who are you by the way?
Hi, my name is Burton. I am 27 years old and come from Hong Kong. I did not always live here though; I spent 8 years of my live in England. I started to go to school there in year 9 and stayed until I finished university with a degree in interior design. Before I worked at modes4u I was employed by the Hong Kong government in an administrative position in the lands department.

What is your job at modes4u?
I am part of the packing staff in the warehouse, so I pick products, wrap and pack orders, cut fabrics, stick stamps and take the packages to the post office. The warehouse team is growing constantly, but we try to keep a concept of rotation, so that you work in a different position every week and really stay in touch with all tasks there are.

What is your favourite product or your favourite category at modes4u?
I think the Sumikkogurashi characters are cool. I like the story behind them and the fact that they are designed in a very simple, minimalistic way. Usually the kawaii things in our shop have very loud and bright colors, so the products with these characters stand out. They are really likeable.

What do you like most about your job at modes4u?
It’s great to work with the people here; we are a young team and get along very well. Everybody has a different background. Some employees are from other countries, but also all Hong Kongers are from very different jobs and fields. It’s very interesting to share experiences and learn from each other.

You’re surrounded by creative stuff the whole day. Do you like to craft or to be creative in your leisure time?
It’s definitely not part of my everyday life, but if there is a special occasion or a special person I can be very creative, craft things myself or organise surprises.

A lot of Rilakkuma and a little bit of Burton

modes4u team: Rilakkuma asks……. Jacqueline

Time to catch up with our team member introduction series. Today is all about our office administrator Jacqueline, who helps us staying organised in the office.

Hello, who are you by the way?
My name is Jacqueline. I was born and raised in Hong Kong. For my last year of High School I moved to Australia and also went to university there. I studied Social Sciences, majoring in Japanese, Management and Sociology. This combination really enabled me to work in different fields. Since I came back to Hong Kong I have been working for example as a student counselor or in administrative positions like in a passport department.

What is your job at modes4u?
I am the office administrator and make sure everything runs smoothly here. I take care of new deliveries, buy office supplies, stamps and more. I spend a lot of time in the warehouse and work closely with our packing staff, as I am also in charge of unboxing new products. But I also support our Managing Director Sandra in many administrative tasks, do research, organise things and spend lots of time on the phone.

What is your favourite product or your favourite category at modes4u?
I love our owl fabrics. I don’t really sew myself; still I like to look at all the different fabrics. They look really cute and there are so many different styles of owl designs.

What do you like most about your job at modes4u?
It’s great to have so much cultural exchange here. It is my first time to work with people from Germany and Austria which I find very exciting, as every nationality has its different characteristics. I also enjoy trying different foods that my colleagues bring along and learn about their culture.

You’re surrounded by creative stuff the whole day. Do you like to craft or to be creative in your leisure time?
I do not craft very much, but like to be creative in other ways. Music is one of my passions; I am very active in my church band and love to sing.

Christmas gift ideas by Rilakkuma and Burton

Time for a man’s opinion. Today our warehouse expert Burton thinks of some Christmas present suggestions. He has a little help from our big Rilakkuma mascot of course.

Rilakkuma and Burton have some Christmas gift suggestions for you

Rilakkuma and Burton have some Christmas gift suggestions for you

1. Plugys

It’a always fun to decorate and individualize your phone. The cute mobile phone plugys are just plugged into your earphone jack. They look super cute and also protect the earphone jack from dust and moisture.

2. Bento Sets

If you’re looking for a big Christmas present, you can compose a whole bento set. Either you pick one which is already sold as a set or you combine all the parts yourself. A bento box, a lunch bag and some chopsticks should definitely be included, but you can add as many things as you want: bento towels, cutlery, food picks, sauce containers, cups, dividers and more.

3. Eraser Sets

The wonderfully detailed erasers by Japanese manufacturer Iwako are always a nice little present or add-on. But there are also many cool Iwako eraser sets, which always follow a special theme and consist of several pieces.

4. Sumikkogurashi items

The kawaii shy Sumikkogurashi animals, who love to hide in the corner, are one of San-X’ newer characters. We carry lots of stationery items, bento items and plush toys with the cute bears, penguins, cats, cutlets and all the other members of the Sumikkogurashi family.
