THE LITTLE RED HEELS’ BLOG

Hi darlings, it’s up! Like finally.

I can’t describe how tense the last few moments was. Suddenly, some things just quit working. And because Xiang and I are both totally helpless in the world of SQL/PHP/FTP/ASP and the like, we could only turn to our one and only but absolutely amazing IT guy to solve the issues. Sorry we gave you hell, man, but it’s really hard work paid off. : )

So Murphy’s Law took its place again but thankfully, instead of postponing the launch to another day which we had fear, we managed to get it up by 11:30pm. For those who were waiting and refreshing the site frantically, we apologise very very very deeply for the delay. Xiang told me one of you girls messaged her saying you don’t dare to leave the computer. Hahaha. Sorry darling, we hope it’s a wait worthwhile for you.

Sorry girls once again and above all, we are really extremely touched by all the nice comments.

iloveLRH.com was a project that has been delayed for a year. We know how some of you girls like LJ because it is more personalised. We get to reply to each of your comments, and we get to chat over emails. It was through this, we got to know many of you girls on a deeper level and this was also part of the reason why I enjoy LRH so much. : )

But we eventually decided to take the plunge and move to a dot com because there are certain aspects of LJ that are simply too time consuming. Basic things like replying comments often take us up to 2-3 days, despite pulling all nighters and working as fast we can possibly can. The bottomline is efficiency and Lj was getting too much for us.

With the website, you get your payment details automatically if the item is available. The system prompts you for email if the item is pending and if the existing customer fails to made payment within 24 hours, it will release the item to the next in line. The check out system is constructed to be as close as LJ as possible. You select your items, then all you need to do is to key in your email add, confirm the items once again and we’ll send you the payment details immediately. In short, it’s automation.

But we are very sure even with automation, we had to keep the PERSONALISED factor of LJ and the entire concept of the website revolves around that. Like the way we do up our photos, our signature thematic series, down to how the system operates. And the birth of this blog which is really meant to be a medium to share and talk like before. (Hence, please comment more! It’s getting a little lonely here. Heh.)

The site is far from perfect and we are still adding in more features and moulding some other aspects to make it better. Do let us know if you come across any bugs or errors. Or if you like us to include something or exclude something, let us know too! We will look into that! For now, we have a CONTACT US link at the bottom right hand corner of the window. Or if it is something we can all discuss, leave a comment here! : )

Last but not least, thank youuuu for being with us as we venture into the next stage of Little Red Heels. It hasn’t been easy but we’ll keep going, keep improving.
