The Flawless Spring Sale (and hunt)

This sale cum hunt actually ends today officially, but I manage to catch though. I can't say its one of the better one I attended, but at every booth in the sale carnival, there is a $50L item which depending on whatever you like it, you can buy it. There is a preview on the board for this.

However, there is also a hunt component where there is a nearby flower which you can buy for $0L-$10L. For $0L, the choice is obvious, but for something more, you may want to consider. The only problem is that there is no preview board at all for the item! This certainly discourage me from paying for something I am not even sure how it looked it.

I would say there isn't really something to die for here, but there is no harm spending some time with your friend on a quiet carnival if they are still there.

Firestorm 4.4 Problems

Although Firestorm had been updated to give you server baking and other improvement, changes always will break something. Some users had some issues with the following:
  • My screen is black
  • Where has avatar height offset gone?
  • Hidden buttons or media controls

If you are one of them, fear not, there are workaround and fixes for it here:

Kitty Resolution

This is the concluding piece of the short story I written about Kitty's dark past. The previous chapters are as listed:


Kitty remembered her gentle smile, her soft hand caressing her sometimes when they played. Although it was only the four years together, that little girl was forced to left the family due to her curse. The nun as none other than the girl she played with before she was send to become a Miko, then eventually a Shinto nun. Kitty ran back quickly to catch her fall, lifted her head up gently as she is choking in mouthful of blood, taking her last breath. 

"Kitty, please let it go, I know how lonely it was, these decades that past, with you holding loyally to the curses you bestowed. But the curses does not only bound the family, it bounds you. As my last dying wish, please release the family, please release yourself from the curse..."


Tears flooded Kitty's eyes and her vision blurred. Once, for this hundred year, she cried and she cried hard, screaming loudly as she scratch the floorboard with her claws in anger. What had she done? This was her only friend in this hundred year and she could not believe this is how it had to end.

Suddenly Kitty felt her paw held by a warm and windy feeling as she looked up and there she stood, Hime in her formal clothes and her gentle smile as she look at Kitty and petted her head gentled just like she did in life.   

"Thank you Kitty, for giving up your life to extend the vengence for me. I am grateful. But I no longer feel anger or hatred now. It had been a long time and now my heart if finally at peace. You had given up so much for me. A hundred years where you could be reborned and live your life..."

Hime spoke softly in her ghastly voice, sweet yet echos in the corridors as tears drops from her eyes. Kitty could only nodded as she looked upon the two person who really matters in her life, one long dead and one dying...


"I know you would come..." The nun spoke softly as she point to the urn she placed on the table earlier. "Kitty take Hime with you... My task is complete. For the years I had practice and given my life devoting to the study of peace and enlightenment, there is only one thing that haunts me... Its you. I had knew all along you were not just a random cat in the household, you were the Bakeneko that haunts the family. I knew. And I know I had to set this right and end if. For no one else., but for you, Kitty..." As the nun chokes she held Hime's hand and Kitty hands together, placing them on her chest as she softly chants a prayer.

"Kitty, I will seal your Muramasa blade and you will not be able to unshealth it any more. I will stay with you for as long as you live, for the rest of your life as your protector this time. This is my way to say thanks for all you had done. Without my willing, the blade will remain sealed and you shall go live your life as you deserve. Be what you wanted and do what you will..."


As Hime spokes, she begins to fade as sparkles of her soul and spirit joins the demonic blade in harmony. The blade struggles to free itself from the shealth for one last time before it was silent for centuries to come as the sealed blade accompany Kitty on her relentless journey.



The family was left alone, for whatever left of them. Nobody heard out the mysterious Bakeneko ever from then. But everyone knew it was the brave sacrifice of the nun, whose grave now lies peacefully among the green tall bamboo  forest. Times and times, villagers would remember her and come gives flowers and incense as offering for decades to come.

As Kitty laid the nun down and cover her with a last handful of earth from her paw. She placed her mask which she used together into her grave. "As I lay down my mask, I lay down my vengeance and I hope you would remember me as your friend forever..." Kitty picked up the Katana and spoke softly to it. "We are leaving Hime..." A soft echo in the winds seems to ask Kitty where she would be heading... 

As the wind picks up leaves and make them dances in the breezes, Kitty looked towards the west and smiled. "Where the wind goes, Hime. Where the wind goes..."

Together with Hime. Kitty traveled over the great ocean to many new lands and had many new adventures, but of course that is another story...

In memory of my friend's cat, Moumou.

Tainted Fool Hunt


This was a great hunt at 14 locations with each giving some nice surprises and lots of phoney clocks. But it was fun and it wasn't meant to be insanely hard like Twisted, because they meant you to find it after all.

The clocks are insanely funny and many great sims were in this hunt including Almost Wonderland which left a deep impression on me because you know I am always nuts about Alice. I ended up buying some stuff along the way and I must say I am glad I did this hunt before it ended.

There were only a small couple of things to take note, the first location, although stated Gift #1 #2, I could only find one and the last location, which LM was incorrect actually only contain 1 bonus item as I think I found the hint location, but no clock were found. :( Btw, the last location is at :

Well, there is only a couple of hours more!

Fennux Spring Hunt 2013


Fennux is a form of virtual pet which is breedable and you can even wear and duel with them, somewhat similar to the idea of Pokemon. Although I had never owned one before, but I did come across this hunt which exposes the hunter to the Fennux world.

While some of you will probably close this page immediately because you do not want to spend any $L on Fennux, let me say this, the prizes DOES NOT require you to own a Fennux. In fact, all the prizes are pretty much stand alone items which you can wear and ply around without Fennux. The only thing is that it does promotes for Fennux and I think it is just fair enough to check it out yourself since they had sponsor this FREE hunt with 12 items.

The HUD given to you feature something new as it display the 12 locations and indicates which you had completed (green) and which you had not (red). Simply click on the reds one in any order and you can begin your hunt for the item (2nd item on the left as shown above, supposedly a den).

Start you hunt here by clicking on the signboard.

Botanica Easter Egg Hunt

There are 12 eggs in total and touching it add it to your basket. Claim your prizes at the end of the hunt right where I stood in the photo above.

Spring Festival Hunt


I had just completed a rather interesting hunt on a single sim, but with many shops each sponsoring prizes. It contains all sorts of items for the Spring decoration and is an excellent idea for redecoration of the house, which I so desperately needed.

The hunt cost $1L for each prizes but from the official site, you can even choose which prizes you would want and which to skip. There is no linking LM from he prizes, so you will need to refer back to the main page for LM to other locations.

See some of the prizes on their official site:
