Facebooking

September 15, 2009

For the past few days, I’ve been thinking about what to write and came up with nothing. I guess, I’m too tired to think. I don’t surf the net often because most of the time, I’m snoring. Believe me, I’ve been sleeping for 8 to 10 to 12 hours a day. I don’t find going to parties and drinking sessions exciting anymore. Does this mean I’m getting old? Nah! That could be one of the reasons why I haven’t thought of updating the site.

Anyway, I just want to share the things that keep me from boredom everytime insomnia kicks in or when it’s my rest day and I don’t find myself hanging out with friends. And that is Facebooking. Do you think Facebook is a social networking site? Well, think again. The reason why I signed up for Facebook is not to gain friends. Dang, I ain’t that friendly. Haha! Well, I signed up because of the games. And here are the top 3 games that I always play.

1. Farmtown

Well, the main goal for the game is to level up and expand you farm. You can buy buildings like barn, farmhouse, chicken coop,or mansion, or you can buy flowers and trees that will bring the colors to your farm. May ganun? All you need to do is plow and plant to gain more money. (Tip: You can have yourself hired at the marketplace and gain money and experience) So, if the farm has a lot of things in it, then the owner must be rich! Just like me. Hahaha!

2. Restaurant City

Just like any other games, the goal is to level up and expand your restaurant. You can decorate your restaurant with as many stuff as you want. You can also choose dishes and drinks to serve to your customers. You have to level your dishes up to gain more experience, thus leveling up faster. You can buy ingredients, too. Where can you find a tomato that’s worth 4,700? Only in Restaurant City. So, you can trade ingredients with your friends to save money. Ang pangit pa ng restaurant ko kasi low level pa. haha!

And here is my avatar. Now, that’s cute! By the way, he’s the chef.  Ha ha!

3. Word Challenge

Pasensya, walang picture. Tinamad ako eh.

The game is simple and no, the aim is not to level up, but to have the highest score ever! I think everyone has played text twist. So, I don’t have to explain a lot. This game is just like Text Twist. You can challenge a friend and beat them with your vocabulary and excellence in twisting letters. So far, I’m still the running champion with 16,332 score.

But if you still think Facebook is a social networking site, you can add me. My email address is brain.work@rocketmail.com .

Fine, I just need more friends. By the way, I had to use a different name. Dami ko kasing stalkers. Hehehe!

affection for no reason…

October 1, 2007

It was already past one o’clock in the morning when I went home. I met my “were” classmates in college. It was fun reminiscing the memories we had together. The DOTA we used to play. It’s still juicy and finger-licking good! It isn’t a fried chicken nor food, it’s a game we used to play. That, we sometimes don’t have to eat lunch and consumed all of our time playing. It was addicting at that. I still enjoy how our right hand move the mouse over and roll and glide and run. With the left hand, pressing buttons for skills – test of faith, avatar, chain frost, frost nova, etc. And oh, how will I ever forget the heroes we chose? Heroes we think would lead us to our conquest. Heroes that would make our heart pump three times than normal. Heroes that would keep the battle in good tempo and keep the blood rushing. How could I ever forget those heroes – Na’ix the Lifestealer, Terrorblade the Soulkeeper, Leshrac the Tormented Soul, Krobelus the Death Prophet, Tiny the Stone Giant, and those other mighty heroes dominating the Scourge and the Sentinel? Childish it may seem, but we find it hard to find a strategy. One may think people like us still have to eat a sack of rice and grow up. Yes, it’s a bit of innocence at heart, yet strategic as I view it. How you find a strategy and beleaguered the opponents. How you buy items – like “Sange and Yasha“, “Radiance“, “Battle Fury“, “Aghanims Scepter“, etc. – to keep your hero fit in the game. It’s a battle that deals with mind and wit. I see it as not just a game but a battle in its realm. It somehow reflects how you live your life and how you look for a loophole out of a labyrinth.

And oh well, how can I ever forget the talks after the game? How everyone discussed the strategies and the tactics and all. How one was being corrected for committing a mistake and made the group fell. How one was being told of not buying the same item again. And how one was being scolded for being so greedy at times. Oh, how I love the game.

I know I love the game because I love the people I’m with. I love the game because I and my friends enjoy it. I love the game because it might be the only way that I could see my friends again and share the things we’ve done in the absence of others. I love the game because it keeps my mind working and my hands navigating. I love the game because my friends love it. I love the game because there’s no reason for me not to.

Nothing follows. 😀
