Donkeys by Cica @ The Sim Quarterly

The Sim Quarterly
of Ele (Electric) Monday opened today presenting 'Donkeys' by Cica Ghost. This is the 3rd installation already. Ele changes every 3 months.
I visited initially with Ed, after he left I met several friends, as well as of course Cica, the designer herself, Ele, the owner of the sim and Naxos, disguised as a Xmas rabbit. 
This time there are many fun sitting animations in almost all the 'Cica houses'. Great fun. I loved it, chapeau Cica and Ele!

A NYC Xmas

Xmas city life in New York. After arriving at NYC subway station you ascend the many stairs to ground level where you arrive at a cozy park. It's fun to walk through the city, visit shops, coffee corners, bars, skate at Central Park, take a reindeer tour and admire all the detailed buildings. I really liked it.

Revisiting Furillen

there is always light at the end of the tunnel

Furillen, the truly awesome place designed by Serene Footman, revisited. The sim is inspired by Furillen, an island off the northeast coast of Gotland, Sweden. Once a limestone factory, now a luxury hotel. Remote, bleak, beautiful.  

Last time I was there, I didn't visit all the crazy rooms at the Furillen motel. So in the rebound.

very very surrealistic

Recollection a quiet 'fairy tale like' place on a quarter sim at Red Lines, designed by Edge Moonstrucker (Edge Shabazz) with HanaFairy, where you can relax and be alone with your thoughts. Lovely mood, colors and many (hidden) places to sit and discover. 
Both times I visited I didn't meet a soul.

The underwater world, don't forget to look for it.

Opening party @ Nitroglobus for Maloe Vansant

Last evening (Wednesday 27 November, European time) I organized an Opening party for Maloe Vansant. Her exhibition 'The Moon lives in the Lining of your Skin' will be decorating the walls of Nitroglobus gallery for the coming weeks.

Many people visited the party yesterday evening to admire Maloe's photos and to dance on the cool music of DJ Sin. 
It was a great party. Thanks to all who visited! To those who couldn't tp in my sincere apologies. Do visit the coming weeks.

Just noticed that famous art reviewer Inara Pey wrote an article in her blog 'Living in a Modem World' about Maloe's exhibition at Nitroglobus entitled 'Art in reflection of Self and Poetry in Second Life'. 
As always Inara made a great analysis of the exhibition. It's worthwhile reading!
Thanks sooo much Inara 💓

Some snapshots of people visiting:

My exploring friend Ed Rhode, who also visited the party made this cool overview snapshot:

Many visitors made great pics. This one by Absentia Indaco is a really cool one, which I like to share here. See all pics she made in her FB album of the event. 


Maloe and I after the party: diva's .......  😛

Skating at Da Vinci Gardens

In wintertime we love skating sooo I went skating at Da Vinci Gardens, Kalepa on the frozen pond which has fun skating balls to hop on and go (perfect for lazy girls like me). Miu and Ed joined me.This place has been in SL forever. I hadn't visited for a long long time, but the LM for the skating place in my inventory stil worked.


I seem to fly, but that's coz Ed is such a tall guy :-)

The four seasons, Orinoco Valley

The group mentions 'Snow Falls is back!' and it sure is.
The four seasons, Orinoco Valley, by Brayan Friller and Elyjia Baxton, is now a well decorated winter sim, great textures, lots of (large) trees covered with snow, cottages, goblins, deer, snow falling from the virtual sky and much more. 
There is a lot to explore and many places to sit/cuddle and enjoy the enchanting surroundings/view. In other words the 'winter Valhalla' for photographers and bloggers.
Joining the group costs L$ 50, and I assume (I didn't try) you can rezz then.

More snapshots I made:
