Living next door to…a giant tortoise

Hong Kong is full of surprises. It could even happen that one day you share the elevator with a giant tortoise that is just being taken out for a walk by its owner. Yeah, sounds pretty unlikely, doesn’t it? Still it happened to our team member Bianca. Not only was she quite impressed by meeting such an unusual pet, but also by the routine of the situation. Because the tortoise goes for a walk every day and knows exactly what to do: Ride the elevator, ‘run’ to the exit and wait for someone to open the door (or just run against it until somebody does). As soon as it is outside it can stroll around, always watched by its owner, who doesn’t have a very hard job in doing so. And getting its picture taken didn’t disturb the massive reptile either – it’s probably already used  to being a little celebrity.

It was an encounter of a different kind but definitely unforgettable – at least for the humans involved.

A Unique Christmas Gift Idea For Bathing Beauties

She likes to splash and swim and dive and you’re growing desperate thinking “she obviously only needs water and a bathing suit to be happy”? But there are other ways you can make her eyes sparkle.

Check out our unique christmas gift idea for the bathing beauty.

Give her a cute and lovely smelling set of bath salt. Mmmmmh, taking a hot relaxing bath is just the best way to chill out. Choose either funny Rilakkuma sets with surprise figures when dissolving the ball in water or the classical Rilakkuma bath salt in different flavours such as lavender or lemon. Especially during the cold Christmas days a wonderful oasis of warmth and rest.

Surprise Chinese New Year Red Pockets

We decided to give away some cute Chinese New Year Red Pockets again this year. We did that last year already and we got some good feedback from customers who were really happy about the extra gift. Therefore, we bought some cute bunny red pockets (2011 is the year of the rabbit) + some Hello Kitty red pockets. Inside each red pocket, we will hide another extra gift for you. There are exactly 132 red pockets available, so the next 132 shop orders will get one.
