What's building in Cityville?

Zynga has launched a new addictive game in Facebook called Cityville and it's been the latest craze for the past 3 months since I started. At first, I was not interested in playing it since I believe it's like the other game like Farmville, Frontierville, Social City etc. What made me decide to play it merely out of a gamer's curiousity.

The thing I liked about this game is the combination of Zynga's games. You get to own a city, build several types of houses and businesses which will give you collectibles in exchange of energy, goods or random items and coins to purchase more stuffs for your city. You also get to farm crops and send ships to obtain goods for your businesses.

Unlike other Facebook games which gets boring in a short span of time, Cityville will give you several quests almost every week and everytime you level up. The quests are normally easy which will just require a few clicks and requests from your Cityville neighbors and Facebook friends.

Last week, they had a theme "St.Patrick's Day" where you get to own shops, decorations, do quests related to St.Patrick's. I'm not yet done with the quests and they released a new quest again which is related to ballet.

Since Cityville has released several awesome updates, I'll be discussing the latest news one at a time and my own experience with it, so bear with me :)

Till my next post!

Game Fashion: Devil Trigger Set and Backstreet Set

It's been several months since I've posted in-game fashion. Perfect World already released several cool fashions including headgears or in simplier terms - WIG. I'm not really a fan of wigs since I find it too pricey but when PW released the Devil Trigger Set, I couldn't resist the urge to buy it!

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I'm not the type who buys the set as a whole. I prefer to mix and match items. Here's how the set looks like:

Cervical Vaccine - It's worth the shot!

Lately, several ads are being shown about cervical cancer awareness. Local celebrity endorsers namely, Kris Aquino, Maxine and Pia Magalona were tapped to promote this campaign.

So what is cervical cancer? Cervical cancer is malignant neoplasm of the cervix or cervical area. Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is a necessary factor in the development of almost all cases of cervical cancer. Cervarix has been shown to be 92% effective in preventing HPV.

It stings but it's worth it

It's a good thing that our company assisted us for paying the vaccine. We were given a total of 3 shots with 1, 3 and 6 months interval. Because of our membership with MaxiCare as well, the vaccine costs P 1,700 per shot (excluding the professional fee). That's a total of Php 5,100 but I heard the usual price would cost you around 7-9k Php.

I asked for the vaccine tube for remembrance. I'm done completing our vaccine to protect me for life against cervical cancer. How about you?

Game Fashion: Geeky Earrings!

I'm not really fond of wearing earrings specially ear studs since I tend to misplace the locks. Since I still have the kikay sense in me, I decided to wear dangling earrings instead coz there's a great chance I won't lose them.

It's a good thing that I have officemates who are into selling cute accessories ranging from earrings, bracelets, charms to bags just name it and for sure they have it. Their online shop is called Csquared ClicknShoppe. You can have your kikay stuffs made-to-order if you have a design in mind or just buy the available items they have on the site. Since customers have the option to have items custom made, I decided to give my college bestfriend a nametag cellphone charm for her birthday.

It's a cellphone charm, don't mind the chain :D
