New Halloween Costumes in Yo

Been busy busy busy in the real world ... it is taking too much of my time now that I can barely load yoville. What was I or what am I busy about? Oh that's the real world and I'm not telling about that here :)

So I logged in at yo and whoaa ... a whole new house called "Spooky Village" and lotsa costumes. As usual, buying at the events suck but I still have what was left of the pink retro proceeds so I battled it out. When frustration sank in ... I just had to get them at the stores.

The costumes are good, some are novelties like the headless queen and knight. Although I got most of the new clothing items including accessories, I am not really digging them. I like to dress up my avatars and create a "character on them. The new costumes is like giving everything away that I feel one just needs to wear it and so everyone who bought the same thing will be wearing it just as I wear it .

I was asking myself why I bought these things again. I have too much as in too much already and I keep adding in. Somehow or the other, I need to get rid of the MULTIPLES at least, It has been insane ... I buy multiples of clothing items and store them at other avatars.

I was afraid that my account will be "lost" like my original account so I buy multiples. In case I lost the current account I consider my main ... I have the spare items at the other account. Absolutely insane as I look at it now. The insane amount of real money involved to buy yocash/coins is also insane!   

I didn't realize how deeply I have fallen into this game. It's funny I never thought about that before. And I am just talking about clothing items. Oh well ..

Here are some more pairings..

YoRehab Contest Madness (Room Decorating Contest)

Today I won another decorating contest at YoRehab Contest Madness and I am happy about it ...not that so happy but happy enough that I can still do it. Well, I have not been making any rooms and the room was done in rush-rush mode like an hour and a half. I actually did two rooms :

First Choice and 1st Place- Graveyard Rooms

Second Choice

I am not really a halloween person and I am not really liking chaos in the room, even if it is organized chaos --- so I chose the top one with the little bone wagon. It won me 30k yocoins from YoRehab. Sweet!

Winning top prize means I cannot win for the next 4 weeks so I will be resting my contest urge. I like joining YoRehab room decor contest - it is admin choice and I don't have to bother my friends for votes. I am just so shy I guess to ask favors - well, that's the real life me. I am not discussing that real life here because this is my "other life", remember?

These are my previous "wins from YoRehab ... Fantasy and Poker rooms ... all top prize! Oh I am just happy and proud ad I don't mean to sound like I am bragging. I have lots of other "wins" and yeah, I miss blogging about those in my periods of absences here. So I will be sharing those wins in future posts ...

1st Prize - Fantasy Room

1st Place - Poker Room

I love YoRehab and so far I believe it is loving me. There are great entries and I am just so glad that I have nailed it. Agent L is so awesome !!! I love her, no mess no fuss. Last week there was some drama on the contest (pictograph theme) and it was nasty. Some people into drama attracts the very drama they create ... tsk tsk, nasty!  As for me, I am so allergic to drama that I will run away from it at the first sight. It invites negativity and hate - they are not within any breathing distance of my nature.

But let me share you my secret in joining admin choice contest ---- always submit at the last hour or minutes. You don't need to display your entry for everyone to see, copy or create drama on. If you are entering a contest you should have enough confidence to think positively and believe you have a chance in winning. Therefore, you don't need to ego trip on the number of likes or nice comments to your entry. They don't matter ... what matters is you get too be chosen by the admins voting for the winners.

I Am Back to Where I Started

I have been administering a Facebook fan page - Yoville Design Network -  for more than a year now. Prior to this page, I was helping out with a club page ... this club page is, shall I say, defunct ... or on time out? I am not sure but I guess the drama they make just got into them and they ended up fighting each other ...

Sometimes I wonder if I have to write about these things on facebook as still part of "My Other Life" but the things that happen are somehow connected with the only game I play. These things that happen, outside of the game, but I guess very much about the game --- are very real --- no longer in edit mode. 

Whatever or whichever way I look at it, I guess I must write about it. Events having to do with the game LOL this is after all ... and should be .. a journal! 

I have not being doing yo for a long time ... I guess I am bored and just so plainly frustrated with the game itself and some people who play it. If not for the page and the fans who are on it, I would have just poofed! Oh well .... anyways, yesterday I tweeked some rooms from the old Haunted Castle and posted them. Two rooms :

The rooms are old and I just added a few new items. The fans or friends as I want to call them .... loved the rooms. I am so glad to know that even if I have slackened doing rooms and making some relevant outputs --- these people will always welcome me back. I got likes and nice comments about my work ... These are people I don't even know ..., and yes, they liked my work. I didn't have to ask my friends, my sister, my neighbor to like it nor did I have to get my alter account to like it LOL ... 

And so I am back to where I probably started before ... a lot of people are still interested in learning about frames. If some people learned doing it, there will always be other people willing to learn frames and some other things. Not just frames .. there are so many things to share ... sharing has always been my intention in  making my facebook notes and this blog. And so I must .., if only for the facebook fans that needed whatever little knowledge I can share or facilitate to share. 

It is Friday !!! TGIF--- my real life goes crazy on weekends --- that's the time I play family! Say somethign nice to someone today and you will be glad you did !

Letters ... Letters ...

There is a new gimmick in yo ... letters!!! Supposedly players can form or assemble them into messages .. cool! The only problem is that ... they are too small and viewed with the whole expanse of the room, I think the purpose will not be served.

Am I sounding like I am whining :P Well, to tell you the truth, I haven't done any rooms at all for ages!!! I am just into hotdog-nitro-avatar stuff Maybe I am bored and not too excited at all with the kind of gimmicks that zynga has been offering -- just one big word -- LAME !!!

Have a great day yo ... it doesn't take too much to be nice :) say something good to anyone today ..BOO!

Remember Me?

Remember me? I have committed the worst thing that can happen to a blog ... not posting! I have not been regularly posting until I it went to a real stop. I guess I am bored with the game LOL and frustrated too! I also had RL matters that needed attention .. and which I need not say here :P This is my other life ... my gaming life and this blog is about that gaming life!

I have just been playing the game in terms of nitros and hotdogs LOL. This morning when I logged in and saw the Spellbound broom (reward for the dibs game) shown here,I thought of recording it and sharing it with gaming friends. I even called a friend to help me play it the way I saw it on the billboard promo of the reward game ...

It wouldn't work and I said yeah, another lamer from zynga. I had to bother my good friend who is happily playing in the happy land of Crowdstar (Happy Pets, happy Aquarium etc) It was only a little later that I realized that the broom is just a reward and there is no game on it .. the dibsgame has been played to win the broom .. simple but I didn't get it hahahaha.

So I thought I should play the game again for real than just nitros and hotdogs. Maybe I will repost here some of the other items I posted from other pages/sites ... after all this blog is all forsharing knowledge with my gaming friends and whoever else wants to read it.

This is My Other Life .. in Yoville it is a Game !! Hello!!!

I am back ... AGAIN .. to blogging! This is my other life and so I must live it !!!
