I’ve been following the Internet trend quite regularly. First I had my hotmail account. Then it was Yahoo! account. I first had my chat using MIRC. Later it was MSN Messenger and Yahoo Chat. Only Yahoo!Chat stays with me.
Later when everyone had a Frienster account, I did too!
I first had my personal website in 1996, hosted by www.geocities.com. I was late in joining the blogsphere, but I was attracted to www.blogspot.com before we finally have our own URL at www.nuraina.com.
The latest craze was Facebook. Nevermind the song condemning the Facebook (I however find the song entertaining ). Facebook has connected me again with many long lost aquantances, such as x-students and friends. For the time being I am resisting Twitter, with the hope that there will be no need for me to join Twitter.
Facebook is fine with me. Apart from keeping in touch with acquantances, I also get to play some games. I started playing Scrabble and got to know Gail & Segolene. I also play other games on Facebook such as Bejeweled (each round is only ONE minute!) and Word Challenge.
My latest craze is
Here’s a shot of my farm:
A few persons invited me to join Farn Town, but I don’t think it’s for me, because it’s so tedious. Farmville is simple, and the graphic is cute too
Just take a close-up look at my farm:
That’s “me” watching my chick and rabbit.
When the plants are ready for harvest, it’s so colourful! Take a look at my pumpkins:
And the strawberries:
And I have some livestocks too:
And here I am, after harvesting some soya beans, and standing next to my wheat that is ready to be harvested:
You should see how beautiful my farm is when I have gourds, pumpkins and strawberries ready to be harvested!
Personally I liken this game to what we locally call “Main masak-masak”, o “Tea Party Play” for kids, only that it’s about farming and it’s done online!
If men can enjoy remote-controlled planes/choppers, or fishing, why can’t I enjoy my Farmville, right?
Signing off for the day. Tomorrow I’ll be in Guilin (China), enjoying the breathtaking views of God’s creation.
Oh! I’ll try to log in to Facebook to check my farm!
