Thanks to our good friends in the travel industry who have helped us in various ways, especially Sylvia Sun for her unfailing friendship, support, and advice.

Deepest thanks to Kevin Omura and Dan Strickland of San Francisco’s Kuleana Design, creators of our logo, header, and original website templates, whose generous assistance with so much more than just design issues has been profoundly helpful.  We’re grateful to have been the beneficiaries of their vision, talent, knowledge, and skill.  To anyone who needs to have any kind of design-related work done, I strongly recommend that you put it in Kuleana’s capable hands.  You will not be disappointed.  They can be reached at (415) 282-3211.  [For the record, if there’s anything you find poorly designed or unattractive about our site, I can guarantee you it has nothing to do with their work!]

Lindsay at Purr Design did a fantastic job setting up the technical aspects of our original website so that I, someone who had almost no previous experience with building or maintaining websites, could really hit the ground running.

Thanks also to our website host, LMi, whom we couldn’t be happier with. Great service at a great price.

Greener Printer is an environmentally responsible company that has given us high-quality business cards at a very reasonable rate.

Thanks to Tracy Liu for her hard work, including the many helpful photographs she took for the company, which are featured on our website.

Finally, our continued gratitude to Anna Qin for her many contributions to our company’s success.  We couldn’t have done it without you, Anna!
