Soaking in the sun

Growing up in a tropical country where sun and humidity is in our everyday’s lives, I have not come to appreciate the sun so much until I have moved to a four-season country with shorter daylight and extreme winter condition at times.  Don’t get me wrong, not that I don’t like the sun but when one have too much of something, it is often being taken for granted…but I will never say the same again about that beautiful sunshine.

This summer I have learned to enjoy myself more outdoor and soaking in the sun.  It feels really good and uplifting….so I have decided to do it again today in my lovely tropical bikini from Shiki Designs.  I love the prints on the bikini because it is very colourful and they remind me of where I came from.

If you would like to bring some tropical home, make sure you grab one of the latest Shiki Bikini today!

For my beach styling today, I did a playful look with the latest hair from tram available at the Hair Fair 2013, matching it with a pair of neko ears from Pr!tty as well as a seaband from Exile.

Enjoy the rest of your summer everyone!

Teach Me Something Meme

Still living in the world without shadows, I thought I will make myself useful by sharing a trick that you may not know.  This is for one of the Meme challenges run by Strawberry Singh.  I called mine a trick and not talent because it really doesn’t require special skills to do this.

If you haven’t been following my Meme posts, you can read the rest of them and find out more here!

Also, accompanying this post, I did a styling too.  Just in case you already knew the trick I am going to share, at least you will still learn something new (releases in fashion) from my post. 😛

How often, when you are out and about on the grids, do you check what others are wearing and wonder where you can find that cool pair of boots or belt or hat? Or thinking who made that lovely hair or set of jewelries this model on the runway is using?

….but you are too shy to ask a stranger for the landmark…and when you finally summoned up the courage to open an IM, you realized there is language barrier that you are stuck in the IM trying to figure out how to explain what you want.

What can you do to find out where the items are from without having to go through those embarrassing moments?

There is an “Inspect” feature that you could use to check the non rigged objects someone is wearing, and from there you could find out who the creators are for those items which most time will help you trace and find the landmarks to their stores.

Here are some pictorial guides that show you how to inspect an object someone is wearing.  Do note that guides are based on Firestorm viewer V4.4.03.

I strongly suggest that before you start inspecting someone, turn off your “Lookat Target Hints” (Preferences -> Privacy -> Lookat) and Particle Beams (Preferences -> Firestorm -> Uncheck Selection Beams)  so when you are inspecting an object someone’s wearing, you do it without interrupting them.  Also, for this to work, you need to make sure the avatar is on the same sim as you.

To inspect a non-rigged object someone is wearing……

Firstly, right click on the object you would like to inspect, in this case I am going to inspect the black shoes this avatar is wearing….

shoes 1

A pie menu will appear, click on “More”…

shoes 2

Another pie menu will open and this time click on “Inspect”…

shoes 3

Now, a table will appear like the one shown in the picture below.   On the bottom of the table, you will find two options to either see the owner or the creator’s profile.  Click on “See Creator’s Profile…”.

shoes 4

…..and tada! You will see the creator’s profile, where very likely you will be able to find the landmark to the store under the Picks and/or Classified.

shoes 5

Bear in mind, this trick only applies to non-rigged objects. 🙂  It’s not a perfect solution but it helped me find 90% of the items I inspected. 😛

There will be times you might end up seeing something that you suspect is a copybotted item.  If unsure, I suggest that instead of teleporting from the landmark you found on the creator’s profile, do a search of the store under “Places” and teleport to the original store from there.

I hope you will find the “Inspect” feature useful.  Let me know what you think! 🙂

Have a nice weekend everyone! ❤

Hopeful Spring

Sometimes things happened for a reason –  How often we experienced the meaning of this phrase?  Not often, at least for me, but having said that, I believe I just had an experience of it.

Luck hasn’t been on my side for the last two weeks.  Last Monday, my husband met with a car accident on his way to work.  He is alright but his car isn’t.  I had to hold my tears in front of my daughter after seeing the damaged car because it is just too severe.  I imagined it must be a horrible experience for my husband during the crash.  I prayed all the way home and thanked god that my husband was not injured.   The accident has suddenly put a great strain on our finances. Both my husband and I were emotionally frustrated because he needed the car badly for his new job.  The accident happened on the same week when I was busy between preparing for AVENUE S/S fashion week and kid`s spring camp.  Being busy was a good thing because I needed something to take my mind off the car problem.

When I was finally more settled with the incident, my health took a dip.  I felt pain on one of my breasts on Friday night.  By Saturday morning, I could feel a lump and it was unusually painful.  I dare not think what was it and at one point was contemplating if I should tell anyone.  Maybe the lump and pain would go away after some good rest? but who am I to fool?  It was unusually painful that I could not ignore.  Every step I took the pain was there to remind me of it.  So I finally acknowledged I needed medical consultation.  However, it was Easter weekends and my family doctor wasn’t working.  I tried another clinic and it was not opened too so I came home to sleep, and sleep.  Emotionally I was quite torn.  On one hand, I was scared and frustrated.   I asked myself if I have been cursed with bad luck lately but on the other hand, I told myself I needed to stay calm and positive because bad mood and bad vibes attract bad things.  The rest of my memory of the weekend was very vague.  I don’t quite remember how I have survived it.

The waiting at the clinic on Monday morning was agonizing.  The urgent tone from the doctor after she had examined me didn’t help.  She told me to make myself available for mammogram and ultra sound appointments within the same week and “AS SOON AS POSSIBLE”!  So I did.  I have to.  My appointments were scheduled on Wednesday morning.  It was another nerves wrecking wait.  I didn’t know what to think, I couldn’t eat, couldn’t focus on anything so I slept most time and in between I think I edited some pictures for blogging too because I needed some distraction.  I also stepped back from my Producer duties at the Fashion Week because knowing myself I won’t be able to do a good job with such state of mind.

After six days of worries, my doctor gave me a clean bill this morning.  Turn out the lump and pain was due to gland tissues. It was a huge sigh of relief when she told me everything is alright.

OK, so I haven’t been truthful.  I said I couldn’t think but actually I did a lot of thinking for the past six days.  I asked myself what have caused the possible of breast cancer despite there is no such history in my family.  I came to realise I have been living under stress and bad mood since I moved to a foreign land.  A new environment, some bad experience and with no support systems here took the best of me.  I realize I need to make adjustment.  I need to be more positive and put more focus on things that are deserving and let go of those that are underserving.  I know I need to keep my faith and have a better control of my own mood.  I know I need to change, soon, before everything is too late.

So today I have a clean bill of health but the experience I encountered for the past two weeks have changed my perspective of life.

Sometimes things do happened for a reason. I was put through life and death, wealth and health situations within a short span of two weeks, to understand what is most important to me. Today, I have choosen to share my experience here not because I wanted sympathy or empathy.  All I wanted to share is the message of focusing on what is most important to you in life and let the trivial ones go.  Don’t wait until it is too late.  In my case, I am glad it is not late for me.  God has continued to grant me the power of choice and I know I need to choose wisely this time.

Here is wishing everyone a beautiful, hopeful and forward looking spring.  Some nice clothings will definitely help too like the two I wore above. 🙂

One more day to the weekend….remember to come watch me walk on the Ricielli show tomorrow (Friday), as well as the closing Haute show on Saturday, along with some really fabulous stylists and models on the grid.  <333
