Pinoy Party at Yoville

Friday, September 26, 2008

My sister Kissxhugs hosted a party for Pinoys in Yoville... I got to meet new friends. And of course, a party would never be complete without pictures, so here they are:

After the party, we visited each other's house.  We went to Nini's bf house which is located in Brookside.   I really like this house...

Now, it's my house turn.  This is my living room... I love color pink and purple, isn't obvious?

Then,  Nini invited us to her house.  See the picture below, I'm with Kiss and Nini.   (Kiss is in the picture, trust me)

And since Ktrix, aka Scratch, is always missing in action, she took a photo of herself in her living room.  
That's our virtual world.  So, what are you waiting for, join the fun, join us in Yoville.

I haven't visited my facebook for a long time, not until I was introduced to Yoville. Yoville is like your virtual world on face book. Like in real life, you need to go to work to earn money. Once you have enough money, you can buy new clothes, purchase items for your apartment, go to work, and meet new friends. You can even go to the beach, diner, casino, bar and more.

This game is so addicting and fun. I got to meet new friends around the world. This is the game for as I love to designing especially our house. Take a look at some snap shots of the game.



So if you decide to join us in Yoville, look for Aeirin and add me as your buddy.
