Free gift & Inexpensive

bbqq free gift 1Li

After heading to the Kowloon chair competition that Zan blogged about below – I checked out a few of the makers of the chairs stores. Totally chuffed with my lucky board win at bbqq – this moon cake and tea on a tray is just 1Li. You need to join the group to win and the group is free.

bbqq star lamps 1Li $25L

While I waited for my initial to come up on the boards (it didn’t take long!) I had a look at the store and found these super cute lamps, all one piece including the flex and plug – $25L and just 1Li for the whole thing! They light up and off by touch – they are going in my new SL home for sure.

Sight Seeing. (Dollarbies).

I decided to pop over to Kowloon and if you’ve never been to Kowloon then you’re in for a treat because If SL came with smellivision then your senses would be overloaded.

It’s been such a long time since I’ve last visited Kowloon that a big part of me hopes it’s not changed as it has the essence which is SL but also a part of me hopes there is something new. You can even rent a room here but if you can’t speak/write in Japanese I think it might be a little bit trickier than other rentals.

I don’t want to spoil the visit so all I will say is just go through the big doors and have a good mooch around.

As it happens I didn’t even get past the entrance because I spotted some Gacha’s and although when you hover your pointer over them it looks like each try is 50Lds it’s not as these Gacha’s are stuffed with junky Dollarbies.

PS.  Yes, I am wearing the other “blindfold” hair.

The white boxes are the delivery boxes and they on their own make a great decor item.  The boxes on the floor and the junk on the table are all my Gacha wins.  Everything from bog roll to a bottle of olive oil.

This packed shelf, 10prims, is not even a rare win but I’m not sure if they do contain a rare win.

The Gacha’s do have a picture of what I am assuming are some of the prizes you can win buttttt…anyhow you pays your money and takes your chances.

Hats off to me (Freebie).

Sometimes I’m surprised that I’ve not subbed to a shop because as a blogger I’m always looking out for freebies/gifties etc and often we get news of these in messages through subscribed notices.  So basically when I slapped the NYC board not only wasn’t I already subbed but I also got sent not only this excellent Fedora but a total of 4 colour packs and each pack comes with a colour combo options.  So good, such a great fit, texturing etc I actually sent Baylen in to grab them.

He also popped over to the BRILLIANT Kowloon sim which both Faith and I know so well and have mentioned before but it never gets boring so here are a few pictures of Baylen pulling a moody look in Kowloon.

This is such a moody and atmospheric sim, the sounds of life going on around you and in particular a high pitched tone is very effective at making this place seem ..

The streets are densely packed together and to find the hidden treasures you need to walk down the dark alleys or up stairs.  Although there are shops here and marketplaces I cannot help but think that behind this whole sim is someone who has the generosity to fund a place which is mainly for people to wander and enjoy an experience that we could never try in RL (what a bloddy shame!)

orton6 As you can imagine most of the shops sell just plain weird and wacky stuff, I’ve actually bought a melting snowman AV in prep for Winter, but since 90% of the stuff you can buy here is just a few Lindens you can spend spend spend not  a lot of money and have a laugh doing it.  Plenty of hang out places and you can purchase food to sit and eat.

My biggest and only complaint about Kowloon is that people can rent homes there but sadly because of the language difference for non Chinese speakers it’s not advisable (their advice not mine) and the language barrier may cause difficulties.  Sometimes I think Sod that and I would just love to rent one of the rooms above a shop or something just to stand there and with the sounds of the city below you chill out.

PS when I went back to LM grab, you rezz just outside the main gates, there is a small cube with some gifties in it.  A hat and weird steampunkish eye glass and for those of you who don’t want to wander aimlessly but do want to check out the shopping spots there is a hud which shows you were they are…but don’t use it! The joy of this place is the wandering and the discovering.
