Kurisumasu Omedeto!

Kurisumasu Omedeto! This means Merry Christmas in Japanese. I am posting Christmas greetings in different languages on my different blogs. I have 13 and hopefully I can finish it up before Christmas Eve.


I try to correlate as much as possible too for the languange and the nature of my blog. For example on my Drama Queen blog, I posted the Korean greetings and on this blog the Japanese greetings because most of the new technology comes from Japan. I was torn between Japanese and German but I opted on the first. Maybe on my other blog I can do the later. I can use car rental Cape Town airport to hop from one place to another.

Japanese celebrates Christmas by eating Christmas Cake on the eve. And based on my manga and anime experience they use this time more to be with friends and lovers than as a family occasion or to celebrate Christ’s birth. Maybe it’s because only a little percentage of their population are Christians. Still it’s nice to know they do celebrate Christmas.

Again Kurisumasu Omedeto (Merry Christmas) and Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu (Happy New Year)!

CastleVille on Facebook

Another "Ville" on FB, after the success of FarmVille, FrontierVille and CityVille (the first two I played but now retired) comes CastleVille. Where you can create your own happy ending. The 'happy ending' almost got me, but though I got several invites I think I have to skip this one. I am busy enough with The Sims Social and Adventure World. 

But anyways, since I am curious (and maybe you too), I took a peek on what's inside.

this is my princess profile

but why is my Lady doing odd jobs?

Oh I see, there are tasks needed to be completed to level up

I thought I would just lie there and wait for Prince Charming to rescue me. Dream on, nowadays even in games you have work your ass princess!

Playing with Siri on iPhone 4S

One of the most anticipated feature of the new iPhone that has never before graced any of the previous models is The Siri.

Siri is your virtual assistant, you can ask her to call, read and send messages, check your schedule, browse the web, etc.

Well, yes she does that but as any other AI (artificial intelligence) apps, she can only do limited tasks. And as the user you should know the basic things she can do. You also need to be very clear with your commands or tasks.

I'm still getting the hang of it but with practice I'm sure Siri and I will be great friends.

Here are the sample tasks I asked her

Here Comes The Simch!

Meet The Simch, The Sims Social version of The Grinch, and he plans to ruin Christmas for my Sim! Hell no, I won't let him do that even if I have to do his errands so that my Sim enjoy her first Christmas.

Here's the first task I have to complete otherwise The Simch will stop the snow, done!

I'm now on the second task, I need to hurry otherwise he would end the holidays completely.

Kinda stupid eh? Well maybe, but I'm just getting into the simulation game and will do the same if ever there is really The Grinch who would want to steal the Christmas spirit. 

I love this season!
