Kitty’s Adventures in Beijing, China

I brought Kitty with me during  my last visit to China.

You can see she’s all geared up wearing her blue sweater.

I also bought her a winter jacket to protect her from the cold breeze.

The weather at that time was around 0-10 degrees celcius.

img_6516-400.jpg

We saw pandas at the Panda Zoo.

img_6572-400.jpg

And Oh look who’s sitting right there covered in a black bag! Kitty’s freezing cold.

img_6582-400.jpg

Aha! I got Kitty to pose right there for the camera to capture the view.

This was at the Temple of Heaven.

We didn’t get to have pictures at the Great wall and the Forbidden City because of the busy tour schedule. It’s really cold up the Great wall.

img_6591-400.jpg

Kitty’s really cold even with her winter jacket.

Here’s Kitty playing inside the hotel room.

That’s a Panda Hat for her!

Kitty’s pretending to be a Panda.

 Meorawrrrr!

Panda Kitty!

Kitty did enjoy our trip to Beijing! We would love to travel again some time. Kitty’s excited for the next trip too :)  

Hello Kitty with Kellogg’s products, yumm

Wee! Last night, while we’re about to enter the grocery, we passed by this little booth of Kelloggs. There’s this promo of buying Kellogg’s products with the chance of picking a paper in a fishbowl and winning a prize! The major prizes are the Hello Kitty and Minna No Tabo bowls. The minor prizes include a small plastic spoon and a bowl hugger both come in Kitty and Tabo designs.

I bought 3 cereal boxes so I can get 3 chances to get the bowl. Here are the cereal boxes! WooHoo. I didn’t include the Kellogg’s frosties (but that is also one of my favorites)

img_5215-400.jpg

So cute, Kitty and Tabo in the boxes! I haven’t tried the Coco Pops but I like the Corn flakes. I bought 2 liters of milk in the grocery to go with my cereals. hehe :)

img_5216-400.jpg

So cuuuuuuute…..!!!

And here are the prizes that I was able to get. Lucky me I got one of each kind.

img_5217-400.jpg

I hoped that I would get the Kitty bowl but Tabo’s cute too. And what a coincidence that I also got the Tabo spoon and bowl hugger. All Tabo items. heeheee ;)

I hope Kellogg’s will collaborate again with Sanrio in the future and have more Sanrio characters and more exciting items for us!!!

Sunbright Express!

Wow, what a really nice train station. I tried to ride it but I don’t have a ticket. I don’t know yet how to get a ticket. I just visited this new place around.

20090918095721-400.jpg

Here’s Kiki and Lala at the Pantheon. So cute! They are from Beijing

20090918101715-400.jpg

Here’s a souvenir pic of Tippy in the West Sun Land. You see there’s my character KYLINE on the right side. hehe =). My hubby’s using it to chat with me. ‘Coz if I’m nowhere to be found, I’m only at Hello Kitty Online World.

I’m here gathering purple dandelions. I need Hoverbell’s powder. 3 Hoverbell’s powder to make the imbued silver. Hoverbell <level 19>. I can only stun 2 Hoverbell’s when my energy’s complete. wah…

Level 19;HKO; Paris here we come,

Here I am now standing at Paris. Found out their quests are harder. Maybe I should be in Level 20 for me to be easier than in my current situation. Here’s a screenie of me in Paris.

screenie1.JPG I promised myself that I would stop playing when I finish London quests and I believe I did today. I was glad that I was able to make that ‘lettuce’ for the hamburger quest. All was easy by then. Of course I bought the level4 farm to be able to plant those seeds. The last quest for me was the Moose Hat for Anthony’s Gag trip. I went back to Florapolis City to get the guide for it.

I wore it first before I gave it to Anthony. haha =p

screenie_moose.JPG

Now that I’ve bought the level 4 farm, I’m now broke. My money ranges from 100-600 from buying and getting money from NPCS(finished quests).

planting_lettuce.JPG Here’s a screenie of me planting those lettuce. My GHASH at last!!!

And so yes I went to Paris and Scone asked me to find Cheery Chums. Found her and she gave me a quest to make something from carrots. Carrots… hmm.. we don’t have that in London. So I checked the farm. It’s a level 5 seed. My farming skills are only in level 4. So I’m now stuck. Need to plant seeds to levelup-which costs money-which I don’t have.

Another quest that I have in my quest list is the Maze. Asking me to memorize a maze and draw a map of it afterwards. Problem is I don’t know where that maze is. Didn’t see it in the map in Paris. Well, I haven’t checked around the North Wind grasslands and other spots as well. Hope to level up soon. ‘Coz I really wanna see Beijing!! and hopefully,  finish the game?

Lvl 18 HKO, woot!

My last quest today was of Dear Daniel asking me to get Moso Bamboo( southwind grassland), thorny vines(wind pathway) and Windbell wart (South Secret Peak/Middle Secret Peak???).

lvl171.JPG

Has problems of raising money. Wants to get Level 4 farm to plant lettuce.

Needs lettuce for a quest to make a hamburger. Only lettuce is the missing ingredient for my hamburger.waHHH…

Will be able to go to Paris soon I hope. :) It’s quite tiring to earn money, I hope they made items a lot valuable. haha

Account unblocked; HKO

Read forum posts and Morningbell asked me if my account was unblocked already. That was the only time I checked my KYLINE account to test if it was really unblocked and it was. However, there was no email to me stating that my account was blocked or that it was unblocked.

Personally, I wanna know the reason behind my account being blocked. I e-mailed Morningbell about it and hope to hear a reply soon. Curiosity of course. And I know for sure that I did not do anything bad in the game. or if so, I was not aware of any rules or of such a crime.

During the time that my account was blocked, I asked my hubby if I can play his account. Anyway, he’s doesn’t have much time to play. KYLINE is way behind my hubby’s character so I decided to play my hubby’s character instead.

mkyline.JPG As of Sept.13,2009

Finished doing Florapolis quests and I’m in London now. Haven’t been to Paris and Beijing, but I really wanna check it out soon.

It’s a bit frustrating because I really want to play as KYLINE. Of course, I’d like girly clothes and stuff but you see, I don’t want to repeat and re-do every quests that I’ve done especially the TAILORING quests of Florapolis which drained my pockets and energy collecting and mining stuff. Wahh..

Will update my HKO status and quests every now and then. woot!

1st day at HKO;anxious;account blocked

It was my first day at HKO yesterday. Everything went well. Some people are nice too. I played for about 6 hours and counting but all was haltered when I got disconnected from the server and when I try to log back in, it says that my account was blocked. I know for sure that I didn’t do anything bad at all. Although through PM with my friend, I didn’t know that some words are censored.

Like when I was telling my friend how I’m having pimples , first four letters were censored. And when I said to my friend ‘want water the plants’ the fourth up to the sixth letter was censored, and I don’t even know what it means. :( More words are censored which I don’t know why.

I was so happy yesterday ‘coz I was making a lot of progress already. I was planning to post here the status of my first day at HKO. I’m at lvl9 already, have the paper hat (the red one) and will be getting the HAMMER from the quest to get Chocho’s toolbox (which I can’t figure out who to give the quest items to). Hay…:( I really want to play now. Posted a message on the forum or aeria/hko already.

I dno’t wanna blog about sad things but just in case someone drops by and can help me out. I would be really really be grateful!

HKO people, HELP!!!
