Vertu - made in china ?

Have you heard the brand call 'Vertu'




Vertu is a British manufacturer and retailer of luxury, handmade mobile phones established by Finnish mobile-phone manufacturer Nokiain 1998. In October 2012 Nokia sold Vertu to private equity group EQT VI for an unspecified amount,[2] (rumoured to be $200 million),[3]but retained a 10% share.[4] By the end of 2013, the company had around 350,000 customers, and phones were on sale in 500 retail outlets, including 70 run by the company.[5] In 2015, it was announced that EQT had sold its share of Vertu to Godin Holdings, a Hong Kong-based holding company.[

a vertu entree level can cost almost $10,000 just for your info but is a niche market cause so far i dont know other companies that does luxury smartphone.

The whole reason why I wanna talk about this is because this topic was brought up in one of the dinner I had with my families.....so what happen next for vertu ? since it sold to HK GOLDIN HOLDING will it lose its brand value and recognition.will it be cheaper since china is known for 'ahem' ....

well rest assure vertu owner - especially my hubby

here what will remain

  • It will still be designed on hand in house which is at england so is still ' MADE IN ENGLAND' (yay !!! to the 450 staff)
  • NO cutting or changes in the price 
  • premium element that vertu are known for in using on their phone such as 'sapphire glass touch screen', Titanium and exotic material such as crocs, ostric etc etc REMAINS



so what's the changes?

  • SERVICE

Vertu are also known for its butler service what it does you can call them anytime anyday and request anything you want ! im not joking! one customer requested an elephant and they get it....how the customer keep in their house I dont know? lets just say they have contact and wide network

the new improved value added service will be call 'VERTU CLUB' instead

reason wise most vertu  key customer are located in China and russia....this allows the service to be more localised and better assistance can be given....

the concierge team are required to be more well rounded as additional service and skill such as
- Finance
-Education
- Healthcare

will be implemented

after my own research i felt a sense of relieved too cause when company are sold to another company...many things always change for better or for worse ....lets hope they remain the top

Chp 5 - a new career....

remember I told you I apply a job with no experience....because my agent told me I may fit right in....


Tomorrow is gonna be  first day and I am kinda nervous somehow....overthinking and
may not be good enough ...

yet people always compliment my style and looks maybe I just never see it ....
it will become my career one day.....


I was hired as a Personal Shopper/ style consultant....is not just fashion....is everything from furniture...kitchenware...etc etc....the customer can ask for  any advice regarding anything stylist or creative so my opinion can matter or it may not be....to me I just gonna be honest...genuine and be myself....

wish me luck

chapter 4 : our value define us....

As i grow up....
I never been the smartest....
I never been a person who are good or some might even say 'talented'
whether it comes to music
whether it comes to sports...
whether it comes to studies...
I would say I am average....and a person who use to be low self esteem....
here something that i am proud of though....
my values as  a person....
a person doesn't just grow up and learn the values
they do not learn cause being a stubborn human as we all are....
we tend to only learn the best when things get difficult....or near the edge
is all has to do with how you want to grow as person....
we tend to blame our upbringing  but every one has a choice ....
either we follow by influence or we told ourself we never want to be like that...
a person who is not good at studies does not mean they are stupid...they just required different learning or maybe they cant learn based on how society perceive
the society we live in are pressuring enough as we are define by grades, what we work as, how much you earn...etc
we are define by the people around us....
for once listen and ask yourself.....is your life anyway....
what are your values....
not monetary value or asset.....

with good value and everything just kinda work somehow...

what is my value....well my values is simple and achievable...
it took some time too but some I did not realize I have it but some i learn as I grow up

I never forget where my roots is....
I believe there is good in every people....no bad people....just wrong situation...
I believe in equality.....
I believe that when you help someone it is more rewarding....
do  not blame your upbringing  or is anyone fault....you decide your own fate....
everyone has a choice....
It is ok to cry and be weak ....because sometime we been too strong for too long...
respect people .....no matter what.....even if they don't respect you....is your value...
do not let them bring you down to their level and lose that value....
and always learn to put yourself in their shoes before judging...
and lasty  to be balance ....
