To start off, I was tipped by the owner. After that, I decided to pretend that I am a real dancer and chat with one man in the club. And for that, I got tipped too! To utilize this opportunity, I change outfits every now and then. I wore lingerie which is something that I don't wear often because there isn't an appropriate situation to wear it.
How do I feel about my greenhorn dancing experience? Well, it is fun but to do as a job is another matter. I can dress naughtily but to sound naughty seems a hard thing to do.

However, I manage to find 2 lucky chairs. The prizes are pirate boy avatar and female pirate avatar. As I already have the pirate boy avatar (got it during a treasure hunt when Greenie Sim first opened), I hope to get the female pirate avatar so that I can be a female greenie.
Female Pirate Lucky Chair
Pirate Boy (his sword and fencing animation are not shown)
See the brown gun in the picture? It is the free bubble emoter. The emoter allows one to send preset bubble messages to persons nearby. The message can be translated to many languages. After using it, I feel that the tool is kinda like instant messaging except a little different. I wish that the tool could allow me to send customised messages.
TP here to get the goodies or attend the Advent hunt from December 1st to December 24th
Read http://rezzable.com/blog for news about rezzable sims which include crimson shadow and greenies

Your Snow Test Says You're Agreeable
You feel like something good will happen to you in the next few weeks.
You love to work, especially when work is creative. You have the makings of a successful artist.
You are a cooperative, agreeable person. You enjoy the company of others, and you enjoy compromising for the good of the group.
Your biggest worry in life is your family. You stay up at night thinking about them.
When it comes time to relax, you really indulge. You are all about your favorite comforts.
My Second Life’s Noobie Misconseptions
You know when you are talking to a Noob when .. (Funny SL Moments)
Both links are from http://rehula.wordpress.com/. Both posts are funny but I find the second link most funniest.
The author in the blog is a designer who owns a Cyber Goth gear Store in Second Life. I like her stuff shown in her blog and I think I should go stalk her store's lucky chair.

Good rabbit, take us to Rainy Town.
Good Rabbit: We are reaching, madams.
I took photos in other environment settings too.
Free items shown:
Pose - *Luth* Melancholy 13, Reel Expression Sub-O-Matic Group Gift (may or may not be available) (0L)
Hat - Part of Blue Blood Peace on Earth Hunt Gift Outfit (OL)
Shoes with skates - Aphrodite Friends and Fashion Group Gift (0L)
*WR* Lighting Freebie (1L)
Camp area : http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ivory%20Beach/224/138/31
I won two AOs, a girl AO and a boy AO on *Cartoon Kids* lucky chairs. The poses in the AOs are pretty good. The downside of the AO is that the poses in the AO ran continuously, meaning after one pose is performed, the next pose is triggered. In addition, the AO does not have Zhao AO functions like “Next Stand”, “Random/Sequential” etc. that one expects to find in an AO. The AO only gives one the option to turn on and off the AO.
Nevertheless, I like the AOs and you are going to see me wearing them quite often (yes, I wear the boy AO as well, haha).
Other items to be worn in the lucky chairs include skates and a winter outfit which look nice from the picture shown in the lucky chair.

Bear Av (L$0) from KUMAMOTO JAPAN
Korean Doll from LittleGirl Peace on Earth Hunt Gift (0L)
Hair from ＋YUZUKAMIYA＋ (0L)
Outfit (include binky and shoes), Shape and AO (pose used in photo is from AO) from Free*Style HQ (1L per outfit and 1L for shape and AO)
Skin from My Girl! (0L)
Eyes from Sin Skins (not free)
There are other bear avs available other than the christmas version. Very cute! A shopper at Snatch validates the cuteness!
The korean doll is cute too. I know people have complained that they couldnt get the rabbit doll, which was the previous LittleGirl Peace on Earth Hunt Gift. However, this one is cute and good too. Thanks to this gift, I finally found a korean designer to adore.
The free hair is available in black and brown. There are also other free hairs, lucky chairs and affordable hair available at the store.
There are 2 other outfits there. Fab!
The photo can look a lot better if I edit it. But I am lazy and dont know anything about photo editing. :)
Bear Av (L$0) from KUMAMOTO JAPAN
My first male pet dog from *Cartoon Kids* Lucky Santa Chair (0L)
Lots of freebies, group gifts and lucky chairs at *Cartoon Kids*. This is also a place for kids to play. Have fun!
EDIT: The dog could follow you or stay. If it is lost, it can send you its coordinates. If you log out of SL without taking it back to the inventory, the dog will disappear. But don't worry, the dog is copyable so you still have the dog in your folder.

It is not really camping. We are waiting for the raffle ball to reward us with cash. However, the pose ball that I sit on is called "camping".
I want to blog more often because I really have something interesting to write about. We shall see.
P.S. The girl in the white outfit is really pretty!
Monday, December 1, 2008
The hair looks weird but I like it. See me smiling! To get the hair, type "red queen" in Search- Groups. The first one is the group to join. The hair is found in the notice archives, along with another gift hair.
I like the skin I am wearing a lot! It is from *Bebae*. You can join the group to get the skin or visit its store to get it.
My blog isn't a freebie blog because it is quite tiring to hunt for freebies. So i just blog what I happen to find. This is some information that I have gathered for my personal consumption but I like to share with ya all too.

- Use only items that you have in your inventory right now (no quick shopping spree beforehand).- Skin, shape and eyes do not have to count towards it, unless you want to.
- Only the name of the item itself counts, not the the designer’s name, brand or the type of item (e.g. you cannot use "trouser" for T) - unless you are really desperate like I was.
- Take a pic, make a list of the items used and post everything on Flickr or in your blog. Post the link to it either on Flickr or in the comments to this blog entry.- Have fun!"
Paulina Oceanlane from Who let the dorks out?
I have been reading the dorks blog for a long time. I love it cos it shows the various looks we can adopt and have fun with. One doesn’t have to be a SL Barbie or Ken all the time.

I change the theme of my blog to "light-hearted stuff". I have been reading blogs for quite some time and I find some blogs to be a bit on heavy side. Nothing wrong with that but I sometimes feel heavy after reading their posts. So tis the festive season and my birthday month coming, let make this blog light for reading. YAY!
While I am on it, go get cooold female and male AOs made by Creamy Cooljoke. Darn nice. Look here for pictures of them and slurl link. That place also has a free face animation hud.
I spent a lot of money today in SL. Ha- I plan to go for ETD sale but guess I cant now.
Sunday, October 26, 2008
I just got a 1GB RAM + my old 256MB RAM. I got excited and downloaded SL a few hours ago. The program was running smoothly and I can view SL in full screen. I havent been able to do that for ages.
I have been doing some reflection. If I start studying hard in the beginning of the semester, maybe I will score better grades now. Sigh. I just have to stoppp wasting time. It's been hard and fun for the past few months but I enjoy it. If you wonder why I am worrying so much about studies, it is because my GPA has dropped drastically last year and I am trying to get it back on track.
Liquid Rage is back!!! It is my favourite club in SL. It gonna be reopening soon after months of break. Now the club is recruiting hosts, hostness and DJs. I like to apply but working 4-6 hrs per week is something that I cant afford for now. Anyone interested to get a job, do apply cos the owners are very nice people.

What's Sexy About Your Name
You are sexy because you are smart. People know that there is more to you than meets the eye.
You are alluring and mysterious. While many people are intrigued by you, the feeling isn't mutual.
It takes a lot for someone to turn you on. First and foremost, you're only attracted to someone who's incredibly brilliant.
But you just don't go for brains alone. Physical attractiveness is something you won't compromise on.
You of all people can afford to be picky. You are demanding, but you are also in demand.
And when someone gets you alone, you're truly amazing. Not many people get to see you in action.
What's Sexy About Your Name
You are sexy because you are a talented lover. You take being good in bed very seriously.
You are willing to do anything to make sure your partner is satisfied. You work hard in the bedroom.
And you're always up for trying out something new. You're always dreaming up new ideas and techniques.
You are very sexually experienced. You've done a lot, even if you haven't had many partners.
Unlike other people, you don't need to be in love to get intimate with someone.
You're open to many experiences with many people. And there's no way you could love all of them!

My pirate name is:
Dirty Bess Flint
You're the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean -- not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!
Get your own pirate name from piratequiz.com.

I think it's because I said in the quiz that I bathe everyday. LOL

Today, Treasure Quest has gone bigger with more designers sponsoring the prizes. In addition, the monthly treasure quest is now occuring twice a month. I still remembered that I had to pay 1L for each prize I win. Now, I dont have to pay a single cent.
Writing this post bring back fond memories. I remembered how busy the Treasure Quest Hunters group IM were, how we were helping each other to solve the clues. The clues used to be pretty hard. I eventually learn to solve the clues without any help.
I stop playing Treasure Quest this year as Treasure Quest is quite time consuming. However, it is so fun that I want to let all of you know especially now that it is featured by a freebie blog. For about a year, I wonder why no freebie blogger blogs about this amazing hunt. Now that someone did it, I am so happy.
For pictures of the prizes for the ongoing quest:
For the slurls of the Teasure Quest locations:
If you want to have maximum fun in the treasure hunt, I suggest not refering to slurls as it takes the fun out of the hunt. There is no mystery as you now know where prizes are hidden.
Many thanks to the Baking Cupcakes bloggers for blogging the hunt. :)

I got the idea from Cen’s blog.
I don’t drink beer, wine or the like. In the future, I may have to but I definitely don’t want to.
I like to dance in my room just for fun.
My dad just moves one of our computers to my room. This is my first time using the computer in my room and it feels refreshing!
I have three computers at home. One in the living room, one in my dad’s room and one in my room
I have a monitor and TV that requires some banging on them in order to be reusable. Reason for banging: The TV is old while someone throws the monitor and my dad picks it up to use.
My av is not pretty all the time but I still like to look at it.
Most of the people in my friends list are men. (Edit: that sound so ... but it is true)
I don’t believe in offering friendship until I know someone well enough. “Well enough” is very subjective. (Edit: I have not offer friendship before so after thinking for a while, I still dont know when to offer friendship.)
Most of my inventory and what I wear are free or 1L items. I do spend but not so much on shopping but on services E.g. Tips for clubbing.
I love hair. It is my favourite.
Tag, you are it!

There has been lots of comments on taking off attachments, maintain Avatar Rendering Cost of 1 etc. so as to reduce lag. Here's a interesting article that dispells the myths of what cause lag.
Gogo from JuicyBomb wrote an article about how to light up one's av for photo taking without having to wear facelight. The instructions are very easy. I dont know whether it will work for me but I will definitely try them the next time I take a photo.

I just receive this notecard from a person that I like to share with ya all.
Hi all My name is Shawna I was in a car accident on august6th 2007 and on Aug 21 I am going to have to have major back surgery I am reaching out to sl in hopes that maybe you will help.

AKA Tiny Epin
Helping Hands SL Charities
This is the first time I receive such a notecard. I am sceptical about notecards like this. Nevertheless, I went to check Tiny Epin’s profile and saw this description on her classified section:
Helping Hands SL Charities
This group was made for people that have true Crisis in theres lives and need help via donations and help. We do investigate all claims before doing our best to help you to weed out the scamers. Also if you would like to help and donate to a great cause or group please Im me. I have reached out to sl several times and they helped me so now its my turn to try and help you.
Sincerely Founder of they SL chapter of Helping Hands.
In other words, Tiny is the founder of the charity and needs help. She has also set up a group for this charity. I tped to the place and found that there is charity yard sale of which some stuff are business-in-the box stuff and a kiosk for me to donate to the charity. I donated and I hope people who read this can donate a bit to the charity to help her. Whether this is real or a scam - I have no idea, it is for all to judge.

The quiz has damn long questions. I am actually not good at maths and didnt study much of science. I study more of IT but didnt get the title of the computer nerd. I think this may be because I am not a gamer.

I really wish Blogger allows bigger pictures to be shown like WordPress.com. Sad...
UPDATE: I change a new templete so that this pic above is shown fully. However, the templete is too plain. Maybe I will change it.

I went back to SL on Sunday. The first thing I did was to categorise my inventory. This is because I couldnt find things that I want easily. At the rate I am going (I am not online all the time), I am not getting out of the changing room any time soon.
As shown in my events column, there is a hunt for men, conducted by many great fashion designer. Go here, get a notecard of the list of locations where the hammers are found. Find a hammer and each one can get hair/jewellery/clothes/skin etc.
I used to desire a male av but I change my mind cos I dont want to lie and I think guys are same as girls. Right?
To have a glimpse of what goodies are in store, check Free*Style blog.

The first blog I read was a freebie blog from Fabfree. I love the blog because it is very newbie friendly (I was a newbie then). If the freebie is a group gift-, it will tell you how to join the group step-by-step. I like the fact that it is able to show naked skins after the cut. By viewing naked skins before getting them, I could see for myself whether the skins are worth getting. Although I understand the blog has been critised for blogging low quality freebies, I am happy to say that Fabfree now blogs great freebies!
The next freebie blog that I discover is Free*Style. At first, I do not like it as it has a messy presentation – not as systemic as Fabfree. Soon I fall in love with Free*Style because its bloggers not just blog great freebies but also teaches me how to dress through the way they put together an outfit. My love affair with Free*Style has recently dwindled because the new bloggers wrote lengthy posts and some of them insert the slurls, names of freebies and designers’ names all in sentences which makes it difficult to read. Fortunately, after feedback in chatbox on Free*Style, the situation has vanished. Free*Style apparently isn’t newbie friendly due to its bloggers’ love for wear non-freebies with the freebies and its lack of step-by-step instructions of how to find a group. Hence, I wouldn’t introduce this website to newbies that are like 1 week old etc.
I also browse through other freebie blogs and find some of them interesting as well. Now, for the sake of my inventory and precious time, I hunt for less freebies and hence spend less time reading freebie blogs. Nevertheless, thanks and kudos to the designers and freebie bloggers! :)
P.S. I have been finding ways to sign off and I think "red ice" is the current best way of signing off. I notice that I type a lot better when I am using Micrsoft Word rather when I am using Blogger. Hence I will continue to type my entry in MS Word and then copy and paste to Blogger.

You are The Moon
Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.I dont know whether what this card says is true but I like the picture on the card.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

The first incident occurred when I read from the group notice archives that there was a freebie shape at the store. I immediately went to the store and bought the shape. That was in the morning. Later, in the afternoon when I logged in, I realised that my account balance seems to be lower than before. Puzzled, I check my transaction history. Ahh! I spent 50L on the shape. I then went to the notice archives. The designer didnt say anything about the shape being free. It was all in my mind! LMAO. After this incident, I nv get freebies when my mind is sleepy.
The second incident occurred when I was in a hurry. I wanted to get a group gift dress. When I click "Join" to join the group, I found that 10L was deducted from my account! I then read the description of the group and found that the designer has imposed a 10L fee to avoid spammers. I was unhappy cos if I have known this, I wouldnt join the group. However, I didnt blame the designer. She has her reasons.
After these two incidents, I have been extra careful. However, I know I am bound to make such mistakes. It is ok. Giving money occasionally to my fav designers is a good thing too!

The dress attire is actually not compulsory but it is fun to dress to the theme. I decide that I gonna wear a latex suit which I got not so long ago. It is not fabulous but it suits the theme. For those who doesnt know what is Hump Day, Humped Day= Wed= Midday of week= gotta be weekend soon!
There is a grand opening with treasure hunt tomo (16 June) as blogged by gogolita. I gonna go and see what fabulous stuff they got there.
Talking about clothes, Fabfree blogs about a 150L gift card today. I went to visit the store, joins its group but I never got the gift card. I was disappointed and wonder what happens. Maybe someone can enlighten me?
