Rilakkuma is back for another interview! This time he talks to modes4u’s accounting genius, Sylvania!
Hello, who are you by the way?
I am Sylvania. I was born in Hong Kong and grew up here. HK is an exciting place full of wonderful people. I have studied abroad but my hometown is still my favorite place to live. I like to read, and have knowledge in area such as arts, economics, accounting and so on. I like numbers.
What is your job at modes4u?
I work all day with figures. Yes, I think you guessed right – I work in the accounting department. I have been working in this field since I graduated. It is an interesting area because figures are not just about numbers, they tell you stories. Sometimes the stories behind the scenes are important, sometimes they’re very similar, sometimes they give a big surprise.
What is your favourite product or your favourite category at modes4u?
I love floral fabrics. Many of our fabrics come from famous well-known suppliers and designers like Robert Kaufman, Alexander Henry and Michael Miller from the US, and Kobayashi from Japan. They are all top quality fabrics that are beautiful, detailed and have fabulous printed floral designs in Japanese, Asian and European styles.
What do you like most about your job at modes4u?
Modes4u is a growing company consisting of young colleagues full of enthusiasm, warmth, kind hearts and a willingness to help each other. Modes4u gives me opportunities to learn and to improve. Besides my accounting duties, I have learned how to wrap packages professionally with the packaging team. I have learned about fabrics too. Different types of fabrics have different characteristics like organic ones, flannel ones, knits, laminated fabrics and so on, that I had never thought about before working here.
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 but I do like to join workshops to learn about making hand-made soap, as well as cultivate organic vegetables during my leisure.
