Rebirth of Shopping Addict Episode 8 Why are you out here doing suspicious things instead of sleeping? You scared me to death. What time is it? I’m working overtime. Moreover my boss asked me for a late night snack but I refused him. I remember the house’s rules. You are very irresponsible with your health and your job when you go out to eat this late. They are concerning about their subordinates. Do you really think everyone is the same as you? You dictator. My boss is really nice, he treats everyone nicely. Treating everyone nicely is the same as treating everyone ungratefully. The man who you always talk about, who you adore, is your boss? Is there anything to adore? Nonsense, how could that happen? No way. There is a possibility that I know your boss, the man you always mention. A middle-aged man, a little bald. Yes. Yes, that’s him. He can even reach the basic standards, how can I like him? No way. I’m going to bed. Come on. Come on. Boy, your tolerance is pretty good. You tell me, why do you promote a women in disguise of a man to the Vice President? If Ming Lang hears this, you’ll be dead. What’s wrong if I say that to her face? I’m not afraid of her. She keeps being grumpy at me all day. Is that right? If you say so then it’s good for you. Ming Lang, her personality is not the nicest, but Xiao Zai, I’m asking you, is she a good person? She has always trying her best to do her job well since the moment she came to Chen Ming store. Moreover, what I need is the fighting spirit that blazes inside Ming Lang. I’d rather have a woman like her, who has a strong personality like a guy, I don’t need a woman who are fake. I know that you are being tricked the moment I heard you said this. Being tricked? Please ask me how many times have I been tricked? Can you sympathize with that type of person that keeps pretending to have their heels broken in front of you and then tell you they don’t bring their wallet a few times in a month? I forgot my wallet. Can you understand that feeling of mine? So being loved by women can be insufferable. I always keep it at a nice balance. Do you know? There are times I have to pretend that I’ve lost my memory. Don’t you want to trick me? Then I’ll pretend that I don’t know you. So everytime, you always detect women has some intentions with you, what if they just want to approach you with genuine purpose? The money I borrowed from you before I haven’t return it yet. Do you remember? Before? Do you actually not remember me? There must be times when you are wrong. Just like an ordinary person also can’t help but feel that they are the best sometimes. I have studied psychology in university for 4 years, and I have experiences working in fashion industry for years, I’d say you look in the eyes. Your eyes is the gate to your soul. So that means when you see their gaze shines so brightly, that’s a trap. Just look in their eyes. Take a look and you will understand very deeply that feeling when she’s not trying to trick you. You see. Like this. This is a genuine smile. This smile starts from the heart. Let me tell you, this type of smile means she has no interest in you. What you want to say is she doesn’t have feelings for me? 100% sure. Look at this smile, this expression means nothing. Dad, aunt Yan. How are you? I have a project named “An old Shang Hai dream”. I hope that you two can come and see. How is the result going to be tomorrow? But I’m trying my best. I’m trying my best. I wish I could fly to you right now. Everybody please hurry up. Please check carefully. Come on. Put the wood tables and chairs over here. After cleaning all of this, then put the sofa here. Yes. Thank you for your hard work. Are these all finished? Yes. Please check one more time at the end. Okay. Manager. Have you done with the preparation? It’s almost ready. Keep going. Hello, my sisters, where are you? You haven’t started to go yet? What? You haven’t received the payment? How could? Gao Yang. The models said they hadn’t received their money so they won’t come. What do you say? The models haven’t received their money. How could it be? Moreover, why are you saying this now? I’ve finished with all the arrangement. I’ve just known recently. The project will start soon. What should we do? That’s right. We put so much effort into making this as imposing as possible. We can’t cancel it right now. Of course, we won’t cancel the project. You hard work put into this cannot be wasted. Let me go first. I’ll try to prolong for the project. Please try to contact the model agency again. I’ll pay them in advance with my money as long as they come here. You don’t have to worry.

Today all of the outfits and accessories from Chen Ming store are available for sale. You see, I prepared a few more plans, marked some positions, for references. I like the vibes in these pictures. This is also the first time we wear qipaos for pictures. Thank you so much. You are being too polite. Your satisfaction is our biggest motivation. Gao Yang. The models are here. Ladies and gentlemen, we will bring you a colourful party right now. “An old Shang Hai dream” show. This color is so beautiful. The beauty of qipaos also lies in its convenience. It’s a harmonious mix between your face and your body. It’s the reconcilition between modern and classic. It’s the essence in our development history of Chinese costumes. is the symbol of beauty of the aspects from the Eastern and Chinese. Perfect realization, a youthful string for women. Putting on a qipao, seems like there are some soft movements just like water. Jiang Nan girl, walks on Qing marbles floor. Long, steady steps. Qipaos are like the softness lies in an Eastern girl, it’s very feminine. And reaches the peak of perfection. Come on. Please take a close look. The buttons, the fringes, and the patterns that was sew on by hand on these qipaos. Those are all China’s specific traits. We can say that qipao is the most intelligent, most brilliant creation of the Chinese culture. It’s a pioneer in fashion trends right now. It’s a treasure that was given to us. It’s an all time gift. Let all of us put on a qipao, let all of us feel those hay days from hundreds years ago. Let qipaos become the link so that we can feel the meticulousness of the beauty that won’t be moved by time and space. So beautiful! That’s really great! Really pretty! It’s so beautiful! Can you help me take a picture of me and my grandma? My grandma is about to celebrate her 70th birthday. So I want to give her some gifts. Of course we can. Your grandma’s tendency is so great.

And with you two, I think you can pick those has youthful patterns. Okay. Thank you! I want, too. | Me too. Okay! Please wait! Everyone will have the chance to experience the beauty of qipaos. Cheers. Come on! Congratulation on your “An old Shang Hai dream” project. Finally we can finish without any fails. This time we have to thank president Li, for helping us with such an obstacle in front of us. If not for you, this project of ours will fail because of our conflict with the models. Moreover, you guys probably don’t know but, I was very embarrassed when no one interacted with me on stage! Luckily, we have president Li on our side, or else, I don’t know how to continue talking. Then how are you going to thank me? Isn’t this way too easy? I’ll invite you for a meal today, and my treat. Really? Hold on! What’s wrong? I’m a little short on money recently. But definitely, I’ll treat you all next time. President Li doesn’t owe you this meal. Just have a drink with him to show your gratitude. Okay, then I have to punish myself with a drink first. Cheers! Gao Yang! This drink should be my treat for you. This project cannot be this successful without your brilliant idea. So, cheers! Then this second drink is on me. Thanks! You violated the rules twice by coming home late. If you come back home full of alcohol smell, your landlord won’t be happy. How can I let my savior be scolded by someone else after getting home after midnight? If I drink this, will you let me take you home once? President Li. That will be driving after drinking alcohol. Then we should do it next time! Is that okay? Let’s eat! You scared me! Why are you not in bed? What are you trying to do, sneakily around here? Are you having nightmare again? Why are you late? Didn’t I tell you before? We had some celebration party today how can I miss that? Yan Li. You have nightmares regularly like that, are you sick? How can I be sick? You are sick. I know you are one of the best in the industry, you are a straight-forward man, and no matter how serious your injury is, you still manage to keep it inside. But as your guest, I should give you some advice. Never give up on your treatment. Stop putting your nose in everything. Why are you so hostile? As human, we all have times when we are sick. What’s wrong with accepting that you are sick? I have things to do. It’s clearly that you had nightmare. And still, you keep making excuses. Then, you get offended easily. I can’t care about you like this. He’s definittely sleep-deprived, he’s so hot-tempered. You want the planning department to pick the key products for next month? How can this happen? President Ye, you can’t say that we can’t do it before you actually let us do it! Picking the key products is nothing like selling some qipaos, it’s not easy. It will affect next month’s sales directly. Can you handle all this responsibility? I want to be in charge, too! The problem is whether you give it to me or not. This “An old Shang Hai dream” project didn’t have a high sales but planning department has proved their ability. They also showed me their hidden power. Every new creation needs to take some risks. So I will take responsibility for this. We have thousand of individual products from businesses. It’d take a long time to learn all of the details about these products President Ye, I’ve already engraved those in my brain. I’m the symbol of the portable shopping bag, a living selling device. I’m not sure about other things, but if you are talking about familarity with those products, I believe that in this building, no one can surpass me. Shopping and understanding your products is two completely different things. President Li, this is the report about experimental shopping that you requested the last time. I added some of my personal opinions about some trendy products on the market. Really? You are making me feel excited for some surprises! According to the reports from marketing department this year, except for immaterial choices such as leaves, travel and losing weight,… more than 50% of women has their first and foremost goal is buying a nice handbag. So are you going to put this Fang He Zi handbag as the key product for the handbag range? The numbers can’t be wrong. As a new product that got released at the same time, its sales is going to be higher and higher. Yes, the after this meeting ends I will discuss this with the shopping department. I have seen a picture of this handbag before on a magazine. It’s really pretty. I don’t think that the real deal is even prettier. Someone with professional knowledge knows that picking a key product cannot depend on personal likings. President Ye. This is not personal likings. This is women’s likings. Really? But why do I feel you only have passion for handbags? It’s not like that. I always favor beautiful things in this world. Experts have pointed out that women love to buy handbags, and it’s because of their genes. In primitive society, women are in charge of harvesting. During that process, they have to carry a bag on their back. Maybe this has some effects on women since a long time ago. So they all love to buy Feng He Zi. Where did your experts come from? How can this come to primitive society? Even compare handbags with bags. That’s obviously not from fashion experts. From a fashionable point of view, accessories are extremely important in their overall look. From a point of an accessory along with your outfit, its application and aestheticism are very important. I don’t need to know whether that’s backpack, or bag or handbag. It’s always the center of a human’s body. When someone comes from afar. the most attractive thing on her is her handbag. So in choosing a handbag for a woman, its application is something irreplaceable, but aestheticism is important, too. That’s right. Ming Lang. With years of experience in this industry, what do you think about this kind of handbag? Women usually want to keep the form of their clothes so they prefer types of handbag that they can put in their phone, wallet, cosmetics, along with other things. So I think I’ll put its application as number 1, and aestheticism number 2. If you only need something to carry your stuff around, isn’t it better to use a nylon bag? Cheap and light. Then Gao Yang, can you tell me why women love to buy handbags? You like it, why do you need a reason for liking something? Selling your products needs a reason. Liking it is the biggest reason. Like is a form of your heart showing its signal. And beauty is that one aspect that can move people the most. Just take a look. This handbag not only shows its own artistic language through the design, but also in every seams and other man-made details are perfect. This can satisfy the psychological needs of young people who want themselves to be more beautiful. So this type of handbag will become very hot. An ordinary brand, plus the price is not cheap. Do you think people will buy this? There are many people who don’t really follow high-end brands anymore. More and more young people these days want to find really unique products. So a product from a high-end brand or from an ordinary brand is not the point that affects the prices of that product anymore. Especially, a few years recently, there are some small designers, with unique and creative mind, receive attention from the public. Because of my responsibility with the company, I won’t allow such a reckless order like this. President Li, president Ye. Excuse me. This is the last handbag of this model, and it was bought by this customer. I need to pack and deliver it to them. I can’t believe this handbag was out of stock so quickly. How can it be that famous? That’s weird. We can talk more about this later! Ming Lang. Please ask the manager of this store to come see me in my office. We still have some chances. There is still hope. What are you saying? Out of stock? The profits of Fang He Zi handbag has reached 200%. The profits are so high, how can we be out of stock? What are you doing in shopping department? We have just received the notice from producers, they are not accepting any new order right now. We have to wait 3 more months for the next order. 3 more months? Next order? We have to get new products in this period. Okay, please get out. Xiao Chen, you stay here. Do other stores still have this Fang He Zi handbag in stock? There are none. This Fang He Zi handbag, even though it just got released not long ago, but its comsumption is always high. Gao Yang. She’s quite interesting! As a store manager, why don’t you report the situation right away? Why did wait until the product was out of stock? This model is not really famous from the beginning. I didn’t expect it to be out of stock so quickly. We only investigated after discovering about it. They don’t have any handbags left. Isn’t the quantity of this batch a thousand handbags? We can take all of them. We already placed that order. Yi Neng Gou also placed an order for this. Now we have two order for the same batch of handbags. So whoever receives this batch first, the situation will become magic. The next batch will arrive 3 months later. So whoever receives this batch first will affect directly to the consumption gap between us the next 3 months. No matter how hard it is, we have to get this batch. I know. I can’t believe Gao Yang knows so well and accurately about fashion. Immediately arrange an appointment with the president of Feng He Zi. But Jack is on vacation leave right now. Nobody can arrange an appointment with him. What a good way to get away with this. Seems like, he doesn’t want to upset either of us. Then what should we do? Find him. We have to find where he is. Yes, I’m on my way. Wait. Before, Chen Ming store changed their mobile payment. It’s called Yun Shan payment. They have a discount of 38%. Have you ever heard of it? I know about Yun Shan payment. It’s an app to pay for every domestic products, and can be paid by associative cards. And it has so many discounts, too. I downloaded one of those. Please look at it. It has some discounts of stores and online shops. When I was looking for a car wash, I found discounts on here. It was associated with China Bank, so its power and security are extremely high. What you mean is we need to add Yun Shan payment as a new way to pay? How do you feel about Yi Neng Gou having its name on the main screen of Yun Shan payment? I feel really good. I’ll do it right away. You can’t sleep properly, yet you are drinking coffee at midnight. You really don’t want to sleep tonight? You didn’t get any sleep last night. Are you sure you can continue like this? Einstein said, You only need three hours of sleep everyday. Really? But now he sleeps 24 hours per day everyday. I heard that when you were in university you learned about psychology too. Is that true? Not only I learned it. I almost got a degree. I almost became a psychologist. Understand? Nice. I have something that needs your advice. You tell me, what’s wrong with someone who has nightmare almost every night? Nightmares, often relate to their childhood fears and desperation. The association with their mentality as a whole when they have a nightmare is their mental state. If I have to say this in one sentence, they are being haunted by their childhood trauma, continuously. Childhood? This word doesn’t fit him. Then what should we do when facing the trauma from childhood? We have to see the specific situation that relates to his fear when he closes his eyes. I’m not that brave. Do you know this person is way too strict? I eat bread in front of him, and a crumb touches the floor, he has a breakdown right there. If we have to talk about the cause, I think to him, this world is his biggest pressure. Is it that serious? You should take him to see a therapist. He’s not going to do that. People like him are so stubborn. Who is that? You seems close to him. My landlord. Old man. No matter how stubborn old people are, they have to eat too. What do you mean? You can do some therapies with food. Milk, apples or whatever. Lavender. Lavender essence will help you sleep comfortably. Lavender? President Yan, Feng He Zi is doing a project at the national exhibition center. Jack is here? I don’t know for sure. His secretary has been hiding for the past few days. We can’t call them either. We can’t be late. Send people to that exhibition. Sure. When does Feng He Zi’s exhibition start? In 40 minutes. Today, Jack’s secretary is there too. We can talk to her if we are soon enough. Thank you, Ming Lang. You don’t look so well. Is it too tired for you recently? Please rest more. Don’t be sick. I’ll feel so guilty if you are sick. Thank you for your concern president Li. Isn’t it normal to care about you? President Yan. I just checked the map, there might be a minor traffic jam in front of us. We can take this small road to pass. It’s a turn near the road. Thank you for your time. We are here today because we want you to help us make an appointment with Jack. Oh no, Li Ming Che is here. Over there. Isn’t that Li Ming Che’s secretary? What should we do? We are still one step after them. Jack cares a lot about his privacy. So I have no idea about his private schedule. Okay, it’s fine. I completely understand. I really hope that we will have a long-lasting cooperation. Thank you for your understanding. I will tell you immediately, if there is anything from him. Okay. Thank you. President Li. Just go home and rest first. What about you? Please. Hello. Can I ask where the consumption manager is? He’s over there. For a long time, our company… Thank you. Ensure the quality, quantity and time. If you cooperate with us, both of us will gain a lot of profit. Please take this Mr. over there. Please come this way. Hello. Are you the consumption manager? Hello. Is there anything I can help you with? In your catalogue, does all of these Feng He Zi have samples? Of course. Our company not only made Feng He Zi, but also pillow sleeves, smiley sleeves saddlebags and envelopes. These are the classics. Their consumption is really good. Like this. I’ll immediately notify our purchasing department to make an order with you. Okay, okay, I’ll try to arrange everything. This style is more. How do you think about arranging this batch? Actually I personally know Jack from your company. About our company’s location and our matching accessories, Jack knows all of that. But Jack is on a vacation leave. Then where is Jack from your company? President Yan. You are so cool. Can’t believe you only need a sentence to find out. This is the “False road cutting” plan in 36 plans. The adoration from the consumption manager is our way to go. Our main goal is how Jack would do. But the price of this order is not cheap at all. What if we have no customers? That’s too expensive. In our contract with them, we can return this order. So you have your own solution. No wonder you are president Yan. You are so smart. Okay. Let me help you book plane ticket. You are…going on a business trip? Where are you going? For how many days? San Ya. The flight at early tomorrow morning. You have to stay at home alone when I’m away. Don’t worry. I’ll take good care of myself. You don’t have to worry about me. I don’t worry about you. I’m worried about my house. I sent you some special rules while I’m away in your email. What? He always thinks about this. No wonder he can’t sleep. Such a waste of time worrying about you. However, it’s me who rent his house I should help him. This time he will definitely have a nice sleep. Doesn’t he have an early flight? Why doesn’t he get out of the house? Maybe because the essence worked too well last night, so he’s late now? Where is he? Oh my god. What’s wrong? I…I don’t know. It’s itchy. Look at this. Stop scratching. It’s an allergy. Did you eat something that you are not supposed to? You always eat only greens and chicken breasts. Now your nutrition is unbalanced so your resistance system has weakened right? That’s why you are having an allergy right? No way. I’m allergic to lavender only. There are many ways to have an allergy. Food can lead you to an allergy. That’s right. There are many things in this world. There’s no way you are only allergic to lavender. What did you eat last night? The day before yesterday? The day before yesterday? I’m really only allergic to lavender. There’s nothing to do with my diet. That’s weird. Where did lavender come from? The cause to allergy can change too. You should pay more attention. You’ll feel sleepy after having this pills. But you have to have it on time. Every six hours. Please monitor him carefully. Okay, I’ll take care of him. Okay. This. Let me help you change the sheets. So your allergy won’t come back. No need, no need, no need. I’m so tired, I want to sleep. You should change this into something cleaner. So that you can sleep comfortably. Let me help you. I already said, you don’t need to. No need. Hello, Xiao Chen. President Yan, why did you miss your flight? Is there anything wrong? Do you need me to change your ticket to tomorrow flight? I can’t meet Jack for now. That’s okay. Please pay attention. If anything happens, report to me immediately. Yan Li. Have this pill before you go to bed. Here… Oh god. You do this on purpose right? How can I do that? Moreover, you are the patient. Patient must not be upset. I’ll go wash it, right now. Stay right there.
