Amore Slingshot

I found this new shop !Soul while I was browsing the fashion blogs and all the clothes are set at 60L and the 2 outfits I bought were both well made even if sometimes, the alpha layer of this white skirt is visible when my avatar moves. It's still Love! This outfit comes with matching ankle boots but I felt that with the hat, wearing knee length boots look better.
Unfortunately, I don't have time to take a picture of the other outfit today.

of lags and patience and expos

I don't know if anyone has notice this, but where there are more mesh buildings, sims seem to lag badly. I don't understand it. I thought mesh was supposed to make things less laggy. Oh yes, now it's all about scripts but really is that true? I don't buy it because the lag now reminds me of how it used to be back in 2007. Yes that bad! Do I now have to upgrade my graphics card for the upteenth time just to prove that it is not script since my avatar move around with less than 50?

Anyway, I'll just be patient and keep on relogging if I keep on crashing because it has come to a point that I really don't want to keep on upgrading my computer. Especially since my son who is a computer geek tells me that I don't need to upgrade until next year.

Have you been to the Home Expo yet?

I love the garden and landscaping sets out there. I wish I had a huge plot of land to landscape and put my house like I used to do last year but the cons outweigh the pros so that will just be wishful thinking.
I have several more sims to explore but I crashed again so I decided to post this instead.

Colour my heart

Another Liv Glam gown called Fenyang Print Dress. It comes with a hud with the usual sizes and different colours. I love how the print looks like a watercolour painting. Also, it is the Malaysian in me and we love wearing colourful prints.

boho on the beach

After wearing the COCO mini for 3 days, it was time to change. Moon is wearing LIV Glam's Susilie Boho dress. The best thing about this kind of dress in real life is that you can eat all you want and hide the bulge in your tummy and still look as if you're svelt and the wind could knock you down. I know coz I always have this kind of dresses till this day.

Year 6

Tomorrow will be my 6th year in SL.

Though the bad times and the good times, I have not been away from this virtual world more than a few days. It's like an extension of my life, although only my family knows about it because I don't know if my real life friends would understand why I would want to spent all my hours in a virtual world and I don't feel like I should explain to them or defend myself.

It started because I was bored and I wanted to pretend to be someone else and for the first 4 years, I spent my time in roleplay sims. I now think it was a waste of time because although it was supposed to be roleplay, people being people, takes things too seriously, myself included.

I'm happier now that I don't have to 'act'. I have time to learn to build and this creativity is one of the most satisfying thing that has come out of my virtual world experience.

I'm helping my very close friend with his club and that's something I never imagined I would experience.
One thing I learned about this virtual world, people are the same as in real life. If you are not careful, you will be used and abused and stepped on and stabbed in the back. And because of all these negativity, people are now not as open or friendly as they once were.... myself included.

And yes, SL can just be as lonely as the real world.

Dressed for the beach

Although it's always hot here where I am, it's been extra hot lately with no rain for respite and even if it did rain, it doesn't help. Even the wind blows hot air.
Moon is wearing a minidress from COCO. I'm loving the simplicity of style from this store at the moment.
The hair is from Analog Dog and feet from Maitreya(hud of the shiki wedges).

House by the Sea

My second Beachcomber's Cabin. I wanted the water to be higher but I took this picture on the LL sandbox and the water level was much lower.

Blue Summer

I got this charming lace sundress from Schadenfreude at Collab88 this month. I haven't taken off my Maitreya wedge sandals since I bought them. The best thing I have ever bought in my opinion. All other shoes pales in comparison coz when I wanna take them off, Moon's feet and toes still looks awesome. Wished the pumps came with that function too.

Denim and Plaid

Plaid and denim is a time tested combination. The denim jacket is from Emery. I still have their short sleeved french jacket from 2009. I think I'm going to box that jacket now that I have this mesh jacket. The red tartan skirt and white leather sneakers are from Coco. 
That hair..... that hair... I remembered when I was in my early teens, I wanted so badly to have that hairstyle after a comic book heroine I cannot remember anymore but it was impossible because I had wavy hair. Well, now my avatar can:)


I love pink. In RL I only wear pink pajamas and it so happen that this outfit looks like my rl pjs...except I don't wear a leather jacket to sleep.... Or a hat.....
All clothings attire and sneakers from COCO.

Ethnic print

A sexy mini with ethnic motif from Liv Glam. I think this is the best group gift ever from them! Moon is wearing Truth Hair Swift. It took me over a month to finally enter the sim. It was full everyday and I couldn't enter it again after that.

My Fair Moon

This week's Group Gift from The White Armory reminds me of the movie My Fair Lady although no lady from that era would ever be wearing such a plunging neckline.

Also, this white gown is a group gift from Desir:

Today is also a special day because my sl mom found me again. Yea I was lost for a while.
