WACÙ – Packs Your Packages

WACÙ-Packs-For-You-Yes-Please-Enjoy-28

Being far away from the hometown is not easy; especially at the beginning. Giving up the lifestyle, not seeing close friends and families; moreover, the new environment makes you feel unsecured. At the first three years, since I had just moved to Munich, I felt lost. The unfamiliar language, different culture, and the harsh weather. Besides, I became unemployed; from an interior designer to a housewife who even did not know how to cook. I threw myself into a black hole, feeling depressed and hopeless. Later, I could re-understand myself through photography and writing; further, to plan my new life in this foreign country.

That time, packages that sent from Taiwan encouraged me a lot; Chinese books or magazines and hometown snacks, the boxes brought the warmest regards from my family. All packages comforted me. Slowly, every unknown thing in the new life was not hard anymore.

If you are also a wanderer like me, you must know well about the package thing; some books from your favorite authors; a few packs of snacks that you have always been greedy in your dreams; the best supply ever for us. However, You must also have the same experience that your packages were damaged from transportation, broken books, damaged magazine covers. Do we have a better way to protect the content of our packages?

遠離家鄉的滋味一開始都是不好受的。放棄了原本的生活、朋友圈以及家人無時無刻的關懷與照顧,其實最令人感到無所適從的,是失去了那份習以為常的安全感。剛到慕尼黑的前三年,在語言、氣候以及沒有一份可以接續的工作情況下,我把自己埋進了前所未有的不安與幾乎放棄自己的情緒裡。後來,透過寫作、攝影以及對自己重新的認知下,才對新的生活環境有了無限的期待與計畫。

其中,從台灣寄來的溫暖包裹起了很大的鼓舞作用。那時候電子書還不普遍,也沒有現在的電子閱覽器;在德國無法獲得令人滿足的中文書籍同時,我上網訂了大量的書與雜誌,再請家人以海運幫忙從台灣寄送遠達德國慕尼黑。一本本載滿熟悉語言的文字書籍、還有家人再添上的思鄉零食都慰藉了一顆遠在異鄉的心;學習新的語言、四季分明的歐洲氣候、還有自己的調適等都不再那麼難熬艱困。

如果你也是遠赴異鄉的遊子,那麼一定對這種帶有家鄉味的國際包裹特別感到熟悉;喜歡的幾本小書、幾包遠在他方買不到的泡麵,還有極富台灣味的打嘴零食等。不過你一定也經歷過包裹被亂丟、擠壓破損的經驗;包裹一打開慘不忍睹。難道我們等待與期待的最大值都要被各地郵政給打上折扣嗎?

Since I received the WACÙ, I try to find out how this tiny machine can help us in the daily life; although, it is specially designed to pack our luggage for traveling. WACÙ is perfect to help us with housekeeping. Packing fabric and sheets with WACÙ not only to save the storage space but also to keep them fresh and to against the tide. In this issue that I planned for several weeks, I would like to share with you how to pack your packages with WACÙ and protect them in the best way. You can pack books, magazines, favorite snacks or other stuff that you want to ship with WACÙ vacuum bags. There are two ways; let us go ahead and read about it.

幾個月前收到WACÙ打包機的時候,除了品牌的設計初衷是拿來打包行李之外(延伸閱讀:WACÙ),我同時覺得用來整理家務、收納家飾織品等也非常方便(延伸閱讀:Make your living space bigger),大大地解決了收納空間與保持簡潔的問題。此外,我也一直計劃著要把打包包裹的想法與大家分享;這時候,WACÙ的真空袋可就完全派上用場。利用真空打包帶可以密封,加上可以抽至真空、或是留下空氣的特點分別保護包裹內的內容物。以前打包書籍海運的時候,都會特別請家人包裹上兩層垃圾袋防潮,不過垃圾帶過薄,不管怎麼以膠帶封箱總會出紕漏;包裹抵達的時候,內裝書籍總是有幾本撞得破損。如果是零食泡麵,有因為撞擊擠壓而碎得成了小屑屑(餅乾都得用湯匙吃)。那麼,一起往下看看,這次在打包包裹上有什麼好用的小技巧吧。

For example, the vacuum bag in size S fits the DHL package size in L. Moreover, make sure you don’t ship contraband stuff in any way.
以德國郵政提供的包裹箱尺寸L舉例,可以用真空打包袋尺寸S多加利用。另外,國際海運、空運請注意打包內容物,不得運送、禁止入境的違禁品。

Take shipping books as an example, I pack books or magazines with vacuum bag in size S and take out 80% of the air. It protects books not get damaged by rough transportation. Moreover, it is the protection against the tide. One point that I appreciate, the vacuum bag is thick and strong enough to protect book and prints from transportation; however, it does not gain any weight to let you pay for it. These books and magazines that I sent to my girlfriends that she asked; I am sure that the package and the books will arrive safely.

以我最常寄送的書本來說,將書本或是雜誌裝入真空袋之後,以打包機將袋內空氣抽出約百分之八十的量,如此一來真空狀態可以保持書本不因包裹的拋送而有過多移動,同時可以防潮,也達到基本的防水;另外真空袋的厚度也可以保護書本,卻也不增加包裹的重量。這幾本好書、雜誌是好朋友讓我訂購寄回台灣的,我相信有了WACÙ的幫助,書本絕對可以安全不受損害地送抵她的手中。

Apart from shipping books, I sometimes also send particular made-in-Germany products back to my family or friends, for example, snacks or beauty products. In this situation, I pack goods with the vacuum bag in size S. I only close the zipper and don’t take out the air; so that the bag itself will become an airbag to protect the goods. At the same time, the vacuum has the protection against the tide. The good quality vacuum bags can be reused for many times and occasions. It is convenient when both sides who ship packages have a WACÙ machine.

另外,有時候幫家人寄送德國特別的乾糧零食或是護手霜等基本保養品,也更方便了。這時候,我就會利用真空袋密封之後留在袋內多餘的空氣當成保護作用的安全氣囊,袋子裡的物品讓真空袋保護的好好的,同時一樣達到基本防水、防潮的功用。包裹裡也不用另外再買泡棉來填塞多餘的空間,同時真空袋因為品質好、厚度夠,也可以重複利用不浪費。如果寄送的兩方都有一組WACÙ真空打包機,這樣互相打包寄送包裹就更方便了。

For the Black Friday and Cyber Monday (which are on 24th and 27th of Nov.), WACÙ will offer a special price to be involved; make sure to follow their Facebook or Instagram account for the newest update.

No matter you are a traveler or a businessman/woman, a housewife, or just like me, a wanderer who left the hometown and needs comfort from the family, WACÙ is a proper tool to help you for any need. The project with WACÙ temporarily comes to an end; however, I will never stop traveling. The project gives me an opportunity to review my lifestyle and find out a way to deal with it. In the next months, we will go together/separated to Taiwan, Rothenburg, Prag and then Hong Kong. The next? Who knows. The destination has never been a point but the partners who travel with you.

配合Black Friday以及Cyber Monday的促銷活動,WACÙ在Amazon上的購物連結也提供了特別的優惠;只要鎖定WACÙ的臉書頁面以及Instagram帳號就不會錯過了這是的熱賣。

不管你是常常出差的上班公務族、在家為大的家政婦,或是和我一樣是個離鄉背井的遊子,又或者你是個常常旅行的遊者,WACÙ都會是你在各方面需求上的最佳幫手。這六個月與WACÙ的合作雖然暫時告一段落,不過在這半年之中,藉由一個簡單機具的設計讓我對生活細節上有了更細微的觀察以及想法;同時旅行也不會停止。我們一家在接下來各自、同時有不同的行程差旅,米夏爾到美國出差、緊接著我回台灣工作、聖誕節前我們到羅騰堡過長週末逛逛聖誕市集、新年我們到布拉格迎接2018年的到來。還沒過癮,我們已經安排了農曆新年到香港體驗濃厚的中國年氣氛。春天,誰知道呢?從來,一趟趟已知、未知旅程的目的地從來都不是最重要的,唯有牽著我們的手、一起走過這趟路徑、欣賞沿途風景的人才是最難能可貴的。
