Sorry I have not been updating this blog with my adventures in HKO but I’ve just been to busy in the game and I wanted to spend as much time ingame as possible.
So …. I will be doing some back posting, starting with the last day because of requests from my guildees
And so, here begins Starrfire7’s last day in HKO ….
It was just yesterday that I was at the Harbor with GM_Calealen, sitting with him, under his tree trying to help all the newbies.
But today when I logged on, he was no longer there! I knew this marked the end of Happy Hearts
I brushed aside my tears and headed onto Sailoria’s farm as she told me she need more red dye for the charity event. On my way to her farm, I met up with fellow guildee, Hileonne, who passed me even more cotton. Unfortunately, we had all the cotton needed so I still have them in storage
I got the Sorosis needed to make the red dye from Ghost and then headed to Sailoria’s farm. Her guildees were doing last min drop offs and Sailoria was doing last min sewing of shirts and bags.
It was almost down to the wire ….. we had about 15mins left before the end of the event b4 Sailoria summoned GM-Zel into her farm.
We, Sailoria, *Twin Starrs*, Twilight and Vampire Kittens, joined forces to try to produce as many shirts and bags as possible.
My guild did a really great job! In total, we managed to come up with :-
2 Charity Shirts
88 Soft Cotton
188 High Quality Cotton
155 Red Dye
145 Slick Stone
3x White T + Newbie Wands
There was no way *Twin Starrs* could have made another shirt or bag, so being able to pass the leftovers we had to Sailoria enabled more shirts and bags to be made, which in turn would benefit the orphanage this charity event was for.
I think Sailoria came up with a great idea by joining forces with the smaller guilds. In the end we had to draw ourselves out of the competition (IMO, there should not have been a competition to start with … but that’s another story) but our guild alliance produced
18 Charity Shirts and 13 Charity Bags!!!!
Great job everyone! I love my guild who backed me up when I told them the idea
After the hand in, we all went onto the streets of London for a street party!
The streets were packed! With most guilds sitting with each other …
I was invited to sit with the Sailoria Guild … Sailoria said I could be an honarary member :) Look who decided to join in the fun? Hello Kitty herself! *wonders if they would ever bring Kiki and Lala out for me to play with*
I did finally managed to find my one only other guildee online at that time, koray, but he was busy
About 20mins till the end of Happy Hearts, there was an a annoucement …. proceed to Paris for a group screenie!!!
Off we went … haha, looks like I’m leading the line
They slowly trickled into Paris …..
Before long, it was time to say goodbye
And the dreaded “Disconnected from server” window popped up
Even though Happy Hearts had not been exactly happy for me throughout, I did enjoy the many new friends I made and also the new guildees we have. There were fun moments I will always remember, especially ripplecloud’s mini event
I’m still looking forward to the next launch and hope that the next one will be here to stay for good.
Thanks to all the GMs, fellow players, Sanriotown and everyone involved in the game … see u all again soon!

Hehehe, for Happy Hearts they made some changes to the farming system and also had more farm selections.
This is my old farm … did not plan on changing it that soon but for some reason my strawberries weren’t growing
I miss the pause button but I do like that all the button are at the corner now .. no drop down menu. Also, friends can help u harvest now … BUT .. only 5 are allowed in yr farm at a time.
What if I want to have a guild meeting in my farm? Our guild is small but we definitely have more than 5 ppl in it!
So saved up $$ and with the help of a donation from Sailoria, I was able to buy my new farm!!
Its a My Melody one as they did not have a LTS one. But I love it anyways … pretty fountains and roses! This farm cost me 20K!!! Now I can grow my strawberries
Here’s me at Sailoria’s farm .. I love this farm too! We were there helping her farm for awhile.
