Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

Hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner tonight, and don’t let that diet stop you from enjoying great food! :P But more importantly, let’s stop and reflect on all the things we have to be thankful for — however small or seemingly insignificant they are.

As for me, I’m thankful that I got to wake up to a beautiful chilly morning. I’m thankful that while I was outside, I saw the most beautiful rainbow I’d seen since I can remember (True story!). I’m thankful that I got to enjoy a yummy buffet breakfast with my mom and brother, and I’m thankful for the good coffee afterward.

I’m thankful for the people I’ve met, the lessons I’ve learned and those I’ve yet to learn, and for all the opportunities that come my way.

For my family, friends, and all those around me. I’m thankful for the awesome players here at HKO, who have now also become my friends, and for all the fun we’ve had together!

Hope you guys can take time to post the things you’re thankful for as well. :)

Thanks for a memorable Founders’ Beta!

I wasn’t there in time for closing time, I wasn’t in your screenies! Oh nooooooo! X<

Dun tayk mai H-KAY-OH plz.


But even if I wasn’t in-game for what Bacon, AVA and Neverender say was quite an interesting couple of hours (for different reasons), I still have a LOT of memories to hold on to. And I also have a lot of screenies! Hurray F11!

So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to all our Founders! Special mention to all those who gave us encouraging words, those who stood by us through trouble and those who celebrated and partied with us. I’d name names but I don’t want to miss any, so you know who you are! Big hugs to you all, and I miss you already!

*Sniff sniff*

Don’t worry Mr. Cat, we’ll be playing again soon. Soon…

Happy Birthday Hello Kitty!

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

A screenie by the giant cake, a simple celebration. I loved how something as simple gathering around some cake for a group picture became fun! :]

Happy Birthday Hello Kitty!

If you were there and you’re having trouble finding your name, don’t worry! We’re planning to have all (well, most haha) of our screenies of events like this up soon.

If you missed the parties, we’re thinking of hosting a few more maybe so everyone can experience it. The first party was.. *erhm* a learning experience. We tried a different approach the second time, and yay, it worked! Anyway thanks to everyone who joined, and for those who took a moment to drop us some kind words during the parties. :]

I’m really sorry I couldn’t answer all your PMs, but I truly enjoyed spending time with you all (plus my F11 key imploded). Haha~ Looking forward to more good times with all of you.

And again, happy birthday Kitty! :]
