Hammer and I love our donuts from Atelier Kreslo’s Donut Festival opened this month, bringing our sweet treats with us to the Cheeky Tiramisu cafe

Second Life: Trekkers

Hammer has been excelling in his photography and last week we went exploring to two different sims that are situated side by side.

They are Mt Everest and Grand Canyon, I have been to the Grand Canyon in reality back when I was 11 years old but unfortunately we could not do much due to so much fog filling up the ravines. On SL however I was able to do many activities mostly horse back riding while Hammer was taking the shots.

I took my pygmy puff Snow with me during the climb to the summit of Mt Everest, thank goodness she’s got warm fur

Gliding in the canyon while checking out what mischief I can get up to

Making our way down from the summit of Everest and Hammer found the most picturesque spot for his photos

Mood: Achieved

It has finally happened after all that struggle, the arguments, the cold reactions from the Assistant front office manager it took me a year but I am finally where I want to be career wise…and it’s only getting better. Two days ago on my afternoon shift I got called into the General manager’s office.

He asked me a single question what did I want to do from here and I bluntly told him, I wish to be duty manager. The best part of our conversation is that he said yes and would get the Human resources manager to send me training modules to be a manager.

So it took 3.5 years from being a Guest service agent to becoming a manager/team leader/Front office ambassador, finally this girl is moving up in the hotel industry and doing something better for herself!

Second Life: 1 Years Old

This should have been done on the 16th July when my Rez day actually occurred but oh well I’m doing it right now. I had PM shift on that day and when I got home Hammer had told me of a masquerade sim to take pretty pictures at but I had to dress up. I had done my shopping at the Secret Affair before work and got to wear Aisling‘s Rose Valentine dress and a pink rose eyepatch from Alchemy‘s gacha at the event.

Hammer teleported to a sim I did not recognise and what a major surprise I got when I accepted it. There was at least 25 people in the outdoor area, the room was grey but loaded to be pink/black and theme of Alice in Wonderland!  My big sister Lexy hosted it in her apartment and organised a surprise Rez day for me between her and Hammer.

It was mostly Hammer’s idea and he managed to send out invitations to the friends that I knew to be dressed up in masquerade costumes and be at Lexy’s place at this hour. He had organised it for a month now and he and Lexy were the dj at my party. Needless to say I was overwhelmed and incredibly touched by what the two did for me.

Never in my SLife or reality did I have a surprise birthday thrown for me and the amount of people who showed up or even sent messages to be passed on show how much they truly cared for me.

The turn out of friends despite the time zone difference was amazing and I thank every single person who showed up, for the 2hrs that the party lasted I have never been so much blessed and fortunate to have all of them in my Second Life.

Fashion Tile: Accessory Queen

My best friend in the U.S, Katie said to me when I started getting more settled in my SL avatar last year that I was a “Walking accessory store” in-world. It had made me giggle back then and even now when I realise that the bestie is in fact quite true!

With these two looks that I present in the pictures it is mostly about the accessories featured. The events that I attended all opened this month of July- Project Limited, OMGacha, Oneword WonderlandWe <3 RP and The Season’s Story

* Donut/Iphone/Coffee ring by Candy Doll from OMGacha June
* Wooden platforms- rose by Cubic Cherry Kreations from We <3 RP
* We all mad necklace by Cute Poison from OneWord
* Pump rosa pink by Muka from Project Limited July
* Cosmic Candy chibi wings by Epic from Project Limited July

* Black cherub backpack by Miseria from The Season’s Story

Diary: 30 Days of Happiness

One of my kiwi friends from Second Life, Shelbz had started this trend on the virtual facebooks to write up each day for exactly 30 days of the things that make you happy. It can be about anything or anyone as long as its something that brings a smile to your face. I’m up to Day 4 on my SL facebook and its quite similar to the ‘Likes’ topic I used to publish on my original Luci Logs.

The more I write up about it the more I realise how very lucky and fortunate I am in the lifestyle I have been given. Mostly thanks to my parents who spoiled my younger sister and I with gifts of travelling the world and living a very good life and getting sent to the proper schools for a great education. It has also opened my eyes on who are the genuine friends, the people that stuck with me through thick and thin.

So this diary entry is a moment of thanks to everyone still in my life online and reality as well as a thank you to my parents for giving me a truly amazing life so far.

Second Life: The Simple Fun

Some people take the virtual worlds way too seriously at times, when it comes to acts of the heart and people tend to forget that we are all real people monitoring behind the avatars within Second Life and IMVU, they forget we have emotions just like them and feel quite immensely.

There is a reason why I tend to keep to myself at night and other days where I wish to join the rest of my international friends in their crazy in-world endeavours. I am scared to show too much having expressed it fully in the past only for my information about myself to be divulged and used against me.

I had got so caught up in the dramatics of online life I forgot what it is meant to live in the real world and merely enjoy the simple pleasures that Barbie realm could give me. Of course it was a learning curve for me and seeing new friends doing the mistakes I make, yes I try and lead them from being hurt but in the end, it’s their choice.

Coming up to my one year in Second Life, it has made me reflect on the past year in this new game and what I want to accomplish from it. Some people have goals, others just live each day not giving a damn how they act and who they involve in their adventures. When I first started Second Life, I had the simple purpose of getting away from the roleplay drama queens that I left behind on IMVU.

My best friend from the U.S, Katie had already adapted to Second Life easily with the rest of her busty community and kept encouraging me to join her in exploring the program. I was very fortunate to have several friends who had converted to Second Life from IMVU to help me de-noobify my avatar and teach me how this new virtual universe works.

Though I will admit even today I am still learning the shortcuts and easier paths to make my SLife more enjoyable for myself. Along the way I have gained and lost many friends close and simple acquaintances. I have discovered that Second Life is much more dramatic than IMVU the difference between the two realms is the age group. We have people far older than me acting like the teenagers of the family friendly client.

I have made mistakes along the way and learned along the way as well as growing, where I am right now in Second Life I cannot complain. It is not about status or putting my mark on the large grid, it is more about enjoying what this adult world has to offer but I am not doing a repeat of IMVU, I will not be here until I’m 30…reality is where the heart is.

Mood: Triumphant

I was going off on a tangent and thought I’ll be ready for a change but during my work hours tonight and I had a conversation with two of my friends followed by Ian returning my messages on viber. Maybe not ready for a new change just yet, sometimes the new change is not better and could have the total opposite of what you desire. Needless to say, I’m taking it much slower this time but still feeling quite confident.

In fact I feel quite empowered by what has happened in the past two days alone and though I may have hurt another male friend about my choice, he just needed that blunt reminder of where he stands. I choose who I want to be with, no one else and right now I’m staying back with the person who understands my quirks.
