My Christmas Wishlist

December 2nd, 2008 by abbyfries:hellokitty.com

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

Friendship

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!

November 27th, 2008 by abbyfries:hellokitty.com

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!

November 9th, 2008 by abbyfries:hellokitty.com

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.

*Sniff*

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!

November 2nd, 2008 by abbyfries:hellokitty.com

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! :]

New event in HKO tonight?

October 29th, 2008 by abbyfries:hellokitty.com

I hear some news carried around in the cold office AC-generated wind, that something’s about to happen tonight (US time). Gasp! What could it possibly be? I have no idea!

laverrue

…Kidding, I know all about it! X] But don’t worry, you’re about to find out in a matter of hours, so stay tuned for news on the HKO Event blog. A patch update should be coming up for that and some other things too, so stay tuned!

Founders, YOU have the POWER!

October 14th, 2008 by abbyfries:hellokitty.com

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 onlinegame@hellokitty.com, 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. :]

Good morning Survivalationators!

HKO Founders Unite!

First of all, I’d like to give you all a big virtual hug, and say congratulations to everyone who was chosen as a Founder for HKO! How quickly you all respond to our announcements, and at what scale, truly amazes me and warms my heart still.

Oh btw, if you haven’t received your email, don’t despair! As mentioned before, we’re doing our best to make room for everyone, because quite frankly we want to see as many people as possible in the game. We can’t wait to see you all in the game on October 8!

It’s gonna be extra fun, I promise. Ask Neverender why. :]

(P.S. Don’t worry about the pink mailbox, he just needs some rest. :P)

Keep the Founder emails coming!

September 15th, 2008 by abbyfries:hellokitty.com

I’ve been reading a lot of posts and comments where players are wondering if they should even bother sending emails now to be HKO Founders, whether because they got the announcement late or because they couldn’t email sooner.

Keep the emails coming!

The response over the weekend was really huge, but now, I’m compelled by my love for all HKO players and supporters to announce this… Don’t lose heart! Just keep sending in those emails! Our mailbox is a hungry pink monster, and he wants more. MORE!

HKO Needs YOU!
