My Three SL Wishes Meme

It's time to make a wish, or three. Ok, how about one more?

1. I wish perverts and griefers of SL will get into trouble in RL.
They need a good lesson. Need I say more?

2. I wish land is cheaper.
I dream of owning a full SIM, but... it's just a dream. Well, maybe someday.

3. I wish scripting is much easier.
Maybe it is already easy and I am just a dummy. How about making it easy for dummies too?

4. I wish people aren't "ashamed" of SL.
I am not. I do hide SL from RL because of my RL work. Some of my (ex)colleagues were quite malicious, so I imagine things wouldn't go too well for me if they knew. But I am open about my SLife with my family and close friends. I mean, if they can play Candy Crush secretly, why can't I play SL secretly? :p

Why do I Blog Meme

This meme is kinda long and my answers are kinda boring. It's been an exhausting week in RL and my brain demands a rest, so I'll be walking about like a zombie for the next few days or so. If you say hi to me and I appear disoriented, just remember that I am a zombie.

My sotong Paul will be taking over all my liaison work for the rest of the week.

1. How long have you been blogging?
For this blog, since May 2010.

2. Why did you start blogging?
I like writing. When I discovered blogging, it seemed like a natural thing to start doing. I gave up my RL blog because it got too tiring to keep up, but SL seemed like a good excuse to start writing again.

3. How many times a week do you post an entry?
Um, from 7 posts a week to 1 post in 3 months.

4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis?
A lot. I like lifestyle blogs, both in RL and SL. Fashion blogs cannot hold my interest for too long. I like reading what people think and feeling out their lives, in other words I am nosy.

5. Do you comment on other people's blogs?
Yes, but rather irregularly. It really depends on my mood, and I often don't feel like talking. :p

6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have?
I do, mostly out of curiosity. I like to know where they come from. I am nosy.

7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote?
Only once, but that was in my RL blog which is no longer existent. A close friend thought I was talking about her when the person and situation in my mind was totally different. There was no harm done because the misunderstanding was cleared up almost immediately, but it made me realise how important it is to write clearly and tactfully. I made sure the problem was not repeated again.

8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog?
Yes, but they must know they only read a side of me. I have much more in my life than what I blog.

9. Do you blog under your real name?
I used to. Now I only blog under my SL name.

10. Are there topics that you would never blog about?
Of course. Many topics are not mine to judge or even reveal.

11. What is the theme/topic of your blog?
It is mostly a diary. "Rainbows, Rubbish, Ravings and Ramblings of my Random Existence" is quite an accurate description of what I do there.

12. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why?
I did up a blog for my vampire clan. I used to have one for my SL business, but it got too much to keep up with too, so I let it go.

13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging?
Blogging opens a window for me to connect with people who identifies with part of me. It balances me up a little because I am sort of a recluse in RL.

14. So, why do you continue to blog?
Honestly, I don't make much of an effort to continue anymore. I only post if it is fun for me to do.

SL Names Meme

It is late Monday night here now so I can afford to be lazy and not babble. Strawberry's other stalkersfans can entertain you well.

1. What's your SL name?
Tashi Core

2. What made you chose this name?
Tashi is my pet name in RL. It means "auspicious" in Tibetan. I wanted a last name that started with C, and Core made the most sense with the variety I was given when I signed up.

3. What's your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? (if applicable)
Sometimes people call me "Tash" and I hate it, although I didn't tell them so. It's just that my name is actually made up of 2 words "Ta" and "Shi", so "Tash" is like a 1.5 word that goes nowhere. What's so troublesome about adding an "i"?

4. What's your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? (if applicable)
I don't have one either.

5. Do you like your SL name?
Yup. But although I like Core well enough, I can do with a cooler last name.

6. If you could change your SL name, what would it be?
Probably Aurorain something, oh wait, that's my alt.

7. What's the craziest/funniest SL name you've ever seen?
8. What's the coolest (your favorite) SL name you've ever seen?
I'm afraid I can't remember any... not at this time of the night. I'll try again tomorrow. :p

My 10 SL Firsts Meme

If you ever feel like you have nothing to write on your SL blog, Strawberry Singh's nosy memes are your weekly cure. :p

1. First SL Friend:
The first friend on my list was Adler. I mentioned him here and here and most recently in my Procrastination Meme here. Eventually he deleted me from his friends' list though, I think he outgrew me or something.

2. First SL Kiss:
I am saving mine for Strawberry.



3. First SLex time/place/partner:
I am... undeflowered. *I can hear people falling over each other* If I can get pass laughing about it, then maybe I can try to decide if I should be ashamed or proud of flagging my SLexual innocence for the 8754163rd time in this blog.

4. First SL Partner/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband:
Unless a business partner counts...

5. First SL Job:
I never got hired, but I suppose setting up a business is a job of some kind. I bred and sold KittyCatS for my first business venture. I branched out into other things later on but I am still at boinking cats and selling their babies now.

6. First SL Creation:
Here it is! Not the first photo, but the hideous grey blob in the second...

Before I go on, I MUST show you how much I have improved over the years.

3-storey mansion with 14 rooms, 7 baths, 4 big halls, numerous little lounges and a humongous outdoor front area that nobody really needs.

There, I feel better now.

I still don't know how to build doors. I use door curtains instead.

7. First Encounter with a Linden:
Never seen one. You mean they are real?

8. First Encounter with a SLebrity:
To answer this, I'll have to tell you how I came to SL, which started from RL, which are all pieces of the same jigsaw. My favourite artiste in RL is Anita Mui. She is something of a legend in the Chinese movie and pop music scenes and she passed away in 2003, but she is someone I can never forget. Occasionally I would still search online to oogle at any information I can find about her. I don't know why I didn't come across this blog post by Mui Mukerji earlier than 2010, maybe because I didn't search for a white dress? Mui Mukerji is also a fan of Anita Mui, and her AV looked the part too. :) That was what made me look at SL again and really try it out. After a month or so into SL, I approached and befriended Mui, which I blogged about briefly here. We actually had a rather deep chat, our one and only chat, and she was very open to share quite a bit about her RL with me. I am not sure if she remembers it now, but I will always appreciate her confidence during our chat. I did bump into her AV once when I was shopping at Alienbear's, but that greeting was just a short one.

9. First SL Sim you fell in love with:
There was once a place called Buddha Field but it is no longer around. It was a bright tropical island with plenty of waterfalls and the buildings have a Nepalese/Tibetan feel to them. Totally the kind of sim my AV would want a home in.

10. First SL Blog Post:
Here you go. This one explains a little about #8 too.

Just for something to say.

I am in love with this hair. (Lelutka Effect in Neon (Moon))


I had this hair in RL when I was 6 (of course it was almost black instead), and I hated it. My mother kept my hair short because she didn't want the additional hassle of dressing it. Even though I quickly learned to tidy my hair by myself, she still didn't allow it to grow beyond my shoulders. That is, until I was old enough to make it more troublesome for her to harass me to go to the hairdresser than to leave me alone to take care of my own hair. I've had waist-length hair for the past 20 years and my well-kept hair still irks her. I suppose it is a mother-to-daughter thing that will always remain a mystery. She had waist-length hair before she got married. What's with the double standard?

So anyway, this hair feels nostalgic to me. The bright colour keeps it from *ahem* traumatising *coughs* me with my childhood. Not to mention that it matches my shoes.

My SL Pet Peeves Meme

You know by now that I stalk a Strawberry. Just saying. :p

We are talking about SL pet peeves for her meme today. Oh my, how do I start? Ok, let's try.

This is in random order:

1) Perverts! Oh, get a RL! That may at least increase your chance of getting REAL sex. Why is pixel sex so amazing for you??? Why would I want my cartoon to have sex with your cartoon? To clarify, I have no problem with others having SLex. Just leave me alone.

2) People who think that SL is all about SLex. Some people cannot understand that SL offers anything other than flirting and f***ing. They only see what they want to see. I only roll my eyes and move on.

3) Guys who hit me up and expect me to think of something to say. You know, the type who can only say how are you and I am fine? And... what? I am supposed to carry on with a conversation you did not start?*

*A friendly hi is always welcome, no matter if you may not have much else to say. I can tell the difference between this conversation and the one that is trying for something more, trust me.

4) Guys who hit me up and expect me to drop everything to meet them. Because they are um, so important? You know, the type who demands a tp? And the type who assumes you would love nothing better than to go dancing or somewhere with them? Because you should be totally flattered that they are showing you attention. If you are not flattered, you are such a snob.

I am such a snob. :)

5) And um, trollers! I despise you and I wish I can spray you with something.

Now that I've read my ranting, I guess my biggest peeves are about getting harassed, usually for romance or SLex, when I don't even go out to meet people. I think I am fairly accepting or tolerant with everything else I've seen in SL so far. This is the best I can summarise without getting mean, although I can tell you oh so many stories!

I am exhausted just thinking about them.
