Hello Kitty Online is running another charity event, this time it’s about rescue in Pakistan and the Oil Spill! Read more at http://www.hellokittyonline.com/news-and-update/events/298-chocolate-harbour-rescue

Play for a Good Cause!
Hello Kitty Online players will mop up chocolates during the event to automatically generate donation points. At the end of the event (or when the cap is reached) Sanrio Digital will use total donation points generated by all HKO players to calculate donations for the following two organizations:

50% of the total donation will go to Oceana, an international organization focused on ocean conservation. Oceana is currently researching the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the largest such spill in history.

The other 50% of the donation total will go to UNICEF to contribute to relief efforts in Pakistan, where massive floods have destroyed much of the country, with over 20 million people affected. Unfortunately, the lack of contributions is jeopardizing relief operations. Here at HKO we think the plight of disaster victims supersedes all other considerations, and we urge everyone to help. Please click on the previous link to find out how you can donate directly.

Not only can you donate to the above two organizations simply by playing Hello Kitty Online, but we also encourage you to donate to or volunteer for a charity of your choice. If we all work together, we can make the world a better place!

Cal is old XDHi everyone,

Founder’s Beta is starting real soon so this will be the final entry made up of Closed Beta screenshots. Woot!!

Can’t wait to meet everybody, including GM-Calealen, who is old XP… and Karen/Plutochan, Starrfire, msmisery, iheartbadtz, fairlady, Noliai, foxy cleo, angie, bunnywinx, chickling, kiyoko, victor5, havel, theola, tidesong, videogamer, hkfood, sailor scouts, Sailoria, BBE, Dawn, Kel, Little Wonder, NoMeNot!, MidNiteEyes, Kaioh, shesroyaltee, and the list goes on… omg, sometimes like Yingdong, I wish can I belong to several guilds all at once! Muahahaha… Anyway this picture was instigated by GM-Tadakatsu.

staring work on BBE's house
Remember all the houses we built in ripplecloud’s virtual musces at work scrapblog? Well of all these houses, we almost couldn’t complete BBE’s!

And that is not because BBE had fallen asleep while playing the game (although she does that at times! XD; who wouldn’t if one has a big fat Dino for a pillow ;P )

BBE is sleeping

In fact, at one point BBE had completed her house, BUT it disappeared again! Rollback? Possibly.  Whatever the reason, all we could do was to roll back our sleeves and start whacking at her house again.

But at late afternoon Asia time, there was nobody else from the guild online :O So the house building went really slowly, with only the two of us cultivating it.

Imagine our surprise when a cute blond appeared before our eyes and said:

  • “I am Sailor Moon, the champion of justice. In the name of the moon, I will right wrong and triumph over evil… and that means my guild will help you build your house!

She was Sailoria, the leader of Sailor Scouts guild.

Sailoria's CB profile
By the way, her birthday seems to be around the corner.

What a kind and generous offer! But it took quite a while for BBE and I to leave Made in Holland and join the Sailor Scouts. :( It’s surprising how one can get attached to something in a few short weeks.

But at the click of a button, our new allegiance was sealed. And more sailor scouts appeared out of nowhere to help build BBE’s house. Woot!

The guild chat was buzzing with activity as we whacked at the house. Sailoria told us about how her guild had completed all their houses. Since she was free, she started visiting other houses and found Debbie building her house all by herself! Sailoria offered to help her then, and that was how the Rescue the Homeless movement started.

[Note: I was always feeling guilty because Debbie had PM-ed me for help but I couldn’t leave BBE’s house :( So I am still extremely glad that Sailoria found and helped her when she did. ]

BBE’s house was soon completed! But that was not the end of this story. Some of the Made in Holland friends came online and joined the Sailor Scouts in helping the homeless as well! There was Kel, NoMeNot!, MidNiteEyes, Kaioh, LittleWonder :D It was as if we were all infected with Sailoria’s energy (and she was energetic considering she had gone without sleep for 24 hours!) and we went on to help with the other homeless players.

building house 2There is a bug somewhere in this picture :P

And then another…

micher's farm
It is awful to be building while standing ankle deep in water :( I strongly advise against this padi-field themed farm! …. XP ok I am joking …

All the time, Sailoria was coordinating with GM-Hak to deploy construction volunteers where needed. GM-Hak (the brown guy with the caterpillar) was also walking around the farms to ensure we don’t run out of juice.

building party at micher;s farm

We started on Micher’s house pretty late and even the GMs were unsure if we could make it, although they said it was worth a try.  Perhaps we were the last house building, so there were people stopping by to see the last ditch effort. It was like a house party, without a house :P

We tried the best we could, but as the clock ticked by and Micher kept being disconnected, we could not complete this house in time. :( But Micher was very grateful and even sent us an email after that. I hope you are getting along well in life Micher, wherever you are!

In the final minutes to the end of HKO Closed Beta, we gathered together in Florapolis at Daniel’s platform and waited for the end.

the final minutes before the server disconnects

Right over here!

The Island of Fun is a cute online version that you can play a simplified HKO while you wait for the full download of the game….you can signup in the client automatically but if you have a Sanriotown account already be sure to link that one up first…

Well this is news…while trying out the European closed beta I saw a flash client button, so I tried it and…lo and behold I am inside a kind of HKO lite or mini sort of version, stuff is greyed out but I can start the game and actually set up my character while the game is downloading/installing.

Now that is pretty cool….

Hello Kitty Online

For those of you who need defending the cute way…here it comes!

Maybe it’s meant to fool criminals into thinking their victims are unarmed, only to be met with 50,000 volts of adorable electricity. The device is a custom version of the Taser C2, a unique weapon that uses “propelled wires to conduct energy to affect the sensory and motor functions of the nervous system.” The gun can shoot out 15 feet of insulated conductive wire, but it can also be used as a direct contact stun device. Double the fun!

This would do well in some hardcore MMO’s I can think of! Watch out Warhammer!

What do you know, Hello Kitty is 35 this year, some mega event happening on HKO methinks! I will upload one that I found on the internet as well later this one is really cute.

 

The new Hello Kitty Online Game Trailer, as someone else said uebercute!

It is sad, yet very touching and reminded me of some stories inside Hello Kitty Online, particularly during CB. I wanted to share this with you all.

So this may not seem like news to you if you don’t know HKO, but for those who do, this is like a big deal! An action that I cannot do intentionally but somehow, I did it anyway!

Check it out! I’m the one lying down in the pink shirt relaxing on the fluffy grass, and Sailoria is sitting next to me.
