This morning I received many complaints from Hong Kong fans and other countries, they complained that they could not purchase Andox as it was only released in Taiwan. Actually I never expected Andox would be so popular, the company had already asked the manufacturing company to produce another batch, thus hope fans from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China and different parts of the world could give me some time, don't hurry me."
