Farming Therapy

From just a tiny piece of land plot, it has now increased double in size. Latest animal additions to the farm are turkey and reindeer and potted plants have started making their way as attractive decorations too. Red bright maple trees line up to add colour as if it's real fall one is experiencing.

Farming in Farmville@Facebook....

Yup...that's my farm. It's looking good now. Crops are growing well; thanks for industrious friends who have helped fertilizing them. You could tell the fertilized crops from those which were not. Size wise they differ - the fertilized ones are bigger and look more enticing.

Farmville strawberries, tulips and daffodils I planted...
There's even a turtle too :)

On one side, the farm animals are lined behind the wooden white fences. There are also chicken coops and two small cottages. Apple, apricot, cherry and plum trees prettily decorate my farm area. And the best part is....I have neighbours!!

Yup..that's my farm in Farmville, the very much promoted "farming with style" in Facebook. Contemplating to be involved it the beginning, I admit that now I am an addict to farming this virtual way.

In some ways, Farmville has provided therapy to help calm stressful moments both at home and the workplace. A game junkie I am now; planting and harvesting as much and as fast as possible to get more money and skills in order to obtain more stuffs for the farm.

My red chillies

To those who are thinking about starting "farming"...err my advice is don't do it!! Not unless you are the type who would run to your Facebook and start clicking on Farmville icon first thing upon waking up, just so that you could check on crops planted the night before.

Sungguh lah C-R-A-Z-Y nya kan....

Aunty Kay,
We don't do virtual farming at all. Mama wouldn't allow us. So, we only do organic farming on the balcony. Got serai, cili padi, even selasih. Very therapeutic too. purrr...meow!

Kay..read tapi takreti komen kali ni..virtually illiterate on the facebook thing!
Mula2 I betul2 ingat you ada kebun..was already saying 'waaah'..then 'ooh'!

Kak Teh said...

wow, I wish my back garden is like that. It is in such a sorry state, especially in winter. Malu nak tunjuk kat orang.

Dear Cat-in-Sydney,

Good for yr Mama!! You young ones shouldn't start on virtual games. When I was young, and I believe the same happened to your Mama too, we played with real games. Galah panjang, teng-teng were my favourite.

Wah..serai & chillies on the balcony? You wanna try bananas?? I can give you one or two anak pokok pisang :)

Dear Mamasita,

Tak yah dok faham ler FB ni bende apa. I think you are doing very well with your blog, if nak add farming in FB, nanti miss pulak aerobics class dgn instructor cun tu!!

Can't imagine you tengah-tengah yoga, pause jap pi harvest grapes!!! Me got no real kebun daaa... tu yg pi cari virtual one. FREE maaaa...bayar broadband je :)

Dear Kak Teh,

Ohhh winter is always like that lah Kak. I'm sure come spring, your garden will start sprucing again. Don't you think it's really nice to have a rose garden like in FB?? Ahhh...I how wishhhh....

Aunty Kay,
Virtual pokok pisang? No, thank you. heheheh...
We also have pokok kari and pokok mulberry on our balcony. Senang nak masak memasak....purrr....meow!

Dear Hazeleyed,

Good decision for not starting FV. You don't have to bother about harvesting and what nots.

Thanks for dropping by. Do come again :)

Dear Cat-in-Sydney,

No lah...not the virtual banana. Tot of giving you real banana plant. But then, I'm sure it will have to be quarantined at Customs. You knw what...I checked seats on flights to Sydney starting a week before Xmas, there was none available!! Ohh...looks like there are many heading your way to laze by the beach this summer yeah.
