Celebrate Spring with Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms are crucial for spring celebrations in Japan. Hanami is a wonderful occasion to admire the beautiful Sakura trees in full bloom and share a Bento lunch with a friend or two. The spectacle lasts for two weeks in March and April. The perfect time to enjoy a picnic in the park.

Kawaii Miffy cake during our company lunch

We had a couple of reasons to celebrate lately so the whole modes4u team – including baby Mason – went to have a company Dim Sum lunch together a couple of weeks ago. We officially welcomed our new team members Sita and Iris who support our warehouse staff. Our team members Ho, Maggie and Dave all had their birthdays in the last weeks. And for every birthday there should be cake. We got a super kawaii Miffy cake that looked almost too cute to eat. It was a delicious chocolate sponge filled with yummy custard.
