I found a free phone today in The Telus Store which is almost similar (well, okay not VERY similar, it's a basic phone after all) to the one Ding has. This store specializes in selling handphones that you find in RL. Yes, the Motorola Razr (or other phones, but mostly Motorola) that you are using everyday! For merely 200L or 300L for some more advanced ones, you can get a phone that allows you to have a funner way to show that you're busy, either in RL or in SL.
Let's get back to the free phone. Of course it's not as swanky as the ones that you pay for, the one that you get here is a basic phone. When you are at the landing point, you can find a freebie bag right at the counter. The bag consists of three tee shirts and two phones and they are 'functional phones' that are loaded with AOs (Read the notecard that comes in the goodie bag for more information). Here are some pictures of me (in the tees from the freebie bag) showing you how it works

There's a couple of hunts going on around, there's one in HOH , then a Voodoo hunt, and a couple more to check out. However, I am kinda busy this week, so instead of giving you all the coords for ALL the hunt, I will only be giving out coords for the Voodoo hunt (those that Lanai found, more to be found) and the Rfyre hunt.
What you are looking for at the Voodoo Hunt are little voodoo dolls located all around the place. I don't know how many are there, there are around 22 on my list (I believe there are LOTS more), and most of them are dollarbies. Here are the coordinates, not according to order, and incomplete:
5 172/162/26 (2 in here:1 on the chair and 1 on the table )
The other hunt that is on is at RFYRE where you have to find all 7 chests to complete the whole gothic lolita outfit. Here is Ephemeral in the lovely dress:
And the Coordinates are as below:
If you happen to find something more than what you have above for the voodoo hunt, don't hesitate to send me a notecard or IM me and I can share with everyone!! Thanks and Have Fun!
Thanks to Gertie Packbiers, there is a dollarbie Pirate Hunt at Cassiopeia Isle, there are 12 summer dresses, two version of dresses in various colors, for a Linden each to be found. What you are looking for a certificates look alike with the picture of the dress that you are getting.The Coordinates are as below.
#11 231/27/23 (under table)
#12 247/24/23 (man's back)
Outfit: LVS&CO-HOTSUMMERNIGHT (1L)
There's a couple of places that I wanted to feature before this (like the 3D Starry Night and Ueno Shinrei hospital), when I tried to tp there, to my utmost horror, they were GONE. Yes, you missed out a lot, but that's okay, because what I am going to feature here is another breathtaking place in SL that you might not want to miss - The Far Away.
What's so special about The Far Away is that this project is put together by Heifer International, which is a nonprofit charitable organization based in little rock, Arkansas dedicated to relieving global hunger and poverty. It provides gifts of and plants, as well as education in sustainable agriculture, to financially-disadvantaged families around the world.To read more, go here. To help donate to this charity, you can always donate by buying a plot of field, a boat or a vehicle, ranging from 1000L to 3000L from AM Radio, if you want to donate straight away, you can go to this site and choose the amount that you want to donate.
Anyway, Ding and me decided to check out The Far Away and we loved it! It's like a wheat field version of the Chou Chou sim (Ding posted here), very pretty, artsy and serene. Reminds me of those places where you will pass by when you go for a roadtrip.
Here is a short clip on The Faraway to let you get hold of the overall atmosphere of the sim.
When you are bored of being glamorous in SL, change into your peasants clothes and try walking around in the down to earth place, The Far Away.

Ding told me that Suri Christen from FreeSecond told her that there's a charity event going on at Monogram Tria Convention Center.
Directly from FreeSecond:
"Monogram Virtua Sponsors the Operation Kid Equip Fundraiser in the Virtual World! The charity's mission is to provide economically disadvantaged children with the basic educational supplies needed to be successful in school.
Operation: Kid Equip, is a project of Congressional District Programs, Inc A registered 501(c)(3) Public Charity. Tax ID #: 65-0970090
I think it's worth your time to go there for two reasons: firstly, this is for charity, and secondly, you can get some really neat stuff like the Polaroid Hanger for a Linden (there's a retail version with captions for 80L):
and the Lounge set for 10L:
..And a couple more cool furnitures ( not to forget the toilet that you can get there.) These won't cost you much, take a break from hair fair and donate some Linden here!
Thanks to Cerrie Jenus from Fashion Ascension, she informed me (and gave me a sheet of tips) about a hunt in a Japanese sim which has goodies from MIU, Swallowtail, Waka and Yuki, Candy Nail and etc up for grab. You are looking for star shapes around the sim and there are 17 to be found altogether. The hunt will end 9/1 Japanese time, so there are still tons of time for you to get it.

[UPDATE] Venturino got the coordinates! What you are looking for in this hunts are very obvious 1000L notes which all over the place, there are 5 in the free speerit store (from what I heard) and a lot more of them are around or in the Free Style building itself. You can also find some in the stores nearby. I don't know how many notes there are out there, and how many I am lacking ( I believe there should be lots more) but here is what I have. It's a fairly easy hunt, however, here are the coords just in case you need them.

There is a hunt over at Free style sim. And I AM SO GOING TO DO IT!! You just sit back and wait for the coordinates. (I don't mind you giving me but take note of this : I WILL POST THE COORDINATES.) And oh, spread the word and share the love.
This post has nothing to do with my blog partner, Venturino.
Venturino and I had learned a couple of things throughout the week about SL.
1. Some people just don't like their picture to be shown randomly (even without showing their faces, or being blurred out)
2. Some people really do love hunt so much that they hate hunt coordinates and since I spoil these people's fun, they spoil EVERYONE'S fun by stopping the hunt.
Let me tell you what I personally think regarding these issues (This is me, DING speaking and I am risking myself of getting boycott and banned and doomed to be in the Dlist forever and worse come to worse, I will have to leave this blog and SL for good):
I don't think it's wrong to post pictures without faces or with blurry faces. It is not like you are some hotshot in SL (even if you are, you are totally not recognizable in these pics, HELLO?) and will get stalked or talk about because of this. Furthermore, there are totally no name or info of anykind that anyone can track you down with. SO WHAT IF THE PICTURES WERE TAKEN?? Were you naked?? Did I call you names?? Did I call you 'oh the girl who is nearly naked and still has XXX prims and its YOU WHO CONTRIBUTE TO THE LAG' ? NO! I didn't do any of that. Why do you have to take this so seriously? This is second life, have fun with it. Or do you mind if I ask: Are you acting so seriously in second life because you don't have a real life??
Now, on the hunt issue:
I post the coordinates on this blog, because I personally think that people need help on hunts, and the easiest way to help out and share the good things is to directly show people where they are. Coordinates list are like a walkthrough for video games. I understand if the point of the hunt is to drive people to the place to go around, I believe that as long as people are there for your hunt, they will spend some time to explore the place that you are featuring (for example the strawberry cafe). I have gotten hate IMs since the trash and treasure hunt saying that people like me spoil their fun. Apparently I did, and due to the strawberry hunt post, the owners cut short the hunt because they feel that people will just grab the gift and go. If you really enjoy the hunt, you can always ignore the 'cheatlist'. I apologize here because I feel I am responsible for the shorten of the hunt. There is one thing that you should know, even if you can shut my mouth, you can't shut other's mouth. There are still people out there going to post coordinates through any means they can (and there is indeed somewhere else that you can get the coords for the strawberry hunt!). I am not the only one trying to do this in SL, there are thousands out there doing the same thing that I did. SO TAKE THAT!!
I say sorry if I offended anyone, if you think Venturino and I should keep posting coordinates and hunts, please leave comments; if you don't, please post too, but I don't want to listen to all those 'I love hunts, don't spoil my fun' shit. At the meantime, Ding will be on hiatus till further notice. ( I will find someone to takeover my place.)
Have a great day.
p/s Digit Darkes secret 100L item for the week is the Grey Affair slip dress. You just have to get it before it is gone by midnight. FYI, the 1L item is a pair of black MaryJanes at the shoes section.
