Because I miss everybody, and…

Monday, February 8th, 2010

…because I saw this, which made me melt for a good 2 and a half minutes:

ZOMG I miss you guys!

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

I found some time today to check this blog, and *sniff* thank you for letting me know I was missed! *sniff* I’m really sorry I haven’t been updating, and also for the long overdue second part of our tribute to the G.O. of the Boxpig. I promise, it’ll be up on my next post, and I’ll really try to put that up soon. *gives cookies to everyone for being so understanding*

I iz so soaree!

I really miss you guys! I hope you’re all doing well, I’ve actually been hopping around some of your blogs every now and then, though I don’t get to comment. I’ll try to leave comments more often. :]

Btw, everyone’s probably already seen this trailer, but I’ll go ahead and share it anyway, because I feel so left out :<

Anyway, as for me, well… obviously been busy. I’m sure you’ve heard some of the big news happening for HKO now, so I don’t think I have to mention them. Umm hmm, what else? Oh and someone just challenged me to eat 5 supersize fries, and I don’t think it’s such a bad idea. LOL! x]

7 Days till Happy Hearts!

Friday, February 6th, 2009

Cute Sugarbunnies blog theme! Sweet and appropriate for Valentine’s…plus I have an insatiable sweet tooth! :P

I tried out another farm and house (some of you may remember the house from CB!) and because Miyaw has been trying out so many designs for her farm recently, I decided to give it a shot! But I settled for something simple heehee — at least it’s fitting! Lookie:

7 days to go!

I was gonna go for a rose, but I couldn’t get it right. :[ Anyway, 7 days to go before Happy Hearts! But there’s something wrong, for some reason it doesn’t feel like Valentine’s yet. I heard from someone that Cupid was coming over to celebrate with us, but I haven’t really seen him. I wonder…

10 Days till Happy Hearts!

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

I’m sure pretty much all of you have heard of our Valentine’s event Happy Hearts by now, and I’m really glad to read how excited you are to play! Trust me, we’re all really anxious to show you just what we’ve been up to with the game. Here’s a little teaser pic with me and GM Miyaw. Pretty farm :]

10 days to go!

And if you look closely, you’ll see a brown little box sitting on a cauliflower plant beside me!

There’s more good news to come! I wish I could tell you now, but I’m bound my sacred GM duty to wait heehee x] Stay tuned!

Happy New Year!

Monday, January 5th, 2009

2009 is here! It’s a new year, a new start. Although I believe that we can have new beginnings whenever we decide to, the start of the year is a great time to set some goals for ourselves, assess the past year, learn and move forward.

Click to send this E-Card to your friends. Happy New Year!

And with thaaaaaaaaat~ I ask, what are your New Year’s Resolutions? Do you still make them?

I know, sometimes it seems that making them isn’t worth the time and blog space. But I still believe in making them, because I think we should always look to improve ourselves, even little by little.

So, here are mine for 2009 (hey, they rhyme)!

  1. To sleep earlier on workdays. I stay up too late, you can only rely on coffee so much!
  2. To draw more. Yes I scribble a bit, but I’ve been neglecting it more and more as time passes. And that’s too bad, because I used to be really passionate about it. :(
  3. To take cooking and baking more seriously. Meaning, learn at least one new recipe every month. This might not be a big deal for our talented cooks and chefs here in Sanriotown (hee) but to me it is! I only have time to play around in the kitchen on weekends!
  4. To exercise more. For health reasons, I sit around too much and exercise too little!

So those are mine. I hope I can look back after a year and see that I’ve done well with these. Hahaha, good luck to me. Oh and I hope that if you have resolutions of your own, you do well with them too! Maybe we can even check up on each other! :o

Again, happy new year everyone! :]

My Christmas Wishlist

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

Christmas is just around the corner — the air’s chilly, there are Christmas lights everywhere, and people seem to be generally happier! Not to mention, there seem to be so much more of them (us) at the malls nowadays.

I’m actually having some trouble finishing my Christmas list, it’s so hard to give gifts nowadays! Or maybe it’s just me — but interests are so diverse now, and I think it’s because there are so many options, that it’s hard to decide!

As for me, I have my own wishlist (not that I’m really asking for any of these from the people I know :P)

Nikon D60

1. A NikonD60 DSLR Camera

“I will be here for you…” by Lukman Kusuma

2. Sleep

3. Good food

Pretty Shoes!

4.  New shoes


5. Time with friends!

I know, only 2 of those are really “valid” wishlist items, but hey I’m easy to please! I’m one of those people who just really like the feel of Christmas, and all the warm fuzzy feelings. So, what’s in your wishlist for this season? Let me know if you posted any lists so I can drop by! :)

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!

Sunday, November 9th, 2008

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! :]

Founders, YOU have the POWER!

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

Ideas can only be good in theory, and once they’re put into motion in a game like this, things are bound to need some adjustments! So we’ve been looking around regularly in one of the best places to get your feedback, the SanrioTown forums, and we found a lot of urgent concerns.

Oh farm oh farm~

And if they’re important to you, you can be sure they’re important to us, so today the earth will shake!

We’ve been having intense meetings (over coffee, HKO music and a lot of chips) these past few days and have decided on our first batch of improvement-geared updates and gameplay tweaks. You’ll find more details about those on Neverender’s blog. Hop on over!

One thing’s fore sure, guild will be adjusted (On that note, I hereby slap my forehead.)

Btw, please feel free to let us know what you want to see improved in the game. Our email is, and that’s actually a direct line to  your GMs! We also check the forums a whole lot. :]

We’re really thrilled to see you all in-game, old and new faces alike. We made this Founders’ Beta so we could all spend some time with each other even before Open Beta, and of course for special (you-have-no-idea kind of special) events that lead to a fundamental part of Open Beta (stay tuned for that). So even as we line up these improvements for the following days, we hope that you continue to be open to us.

So thank you, truly, for your support and for telling us what you think. After all, this is what Beta is for! Founders, you have the power, and we are glad to be with you as we all shape Open Beta for the rest of the world. :]
