What am I up to these days | Gaming Sims 3 in 2016-Ep. 3

Hello everyone, it's me again apologizing for not updating about my gaming shit for a while. 😅

My previous update shows until the dining area of the house, so today I will be showing you guys the skills development areas of the house.  I don't think its a house anymore, its a goddamn mansion now.  I know its creative as fuck as I'm bragging about my talent on building this mansion but it took like a really long time for my sims to move from one area to another.  

Like Gaaawwddd wtf?! 😭😭😭

The blank area next to the gym is still under construction btw. 

Still floating.  To all especially newbies who wonders wtf with all those columns?  Well just so you know each columns provide small multiple grids functioned to levitate a new floor area so that you can build on it.  That's why I put a lot of columns down there (which will be deleted after I finish designing the mansion) so the house can float later.  Magic beetch!

Here's the very small gym coz you know, who likes working out duhh 

The next room is far more relaxing and is build for reading (multiple skills), expanding logic, music and art skills for my sims.

The small door from the previous area acts like a secret passage for my witch-crafting room and only be access through that door only.  Witchy!  

I'm so in love with this decor setting.  Candles...candles everywhere.

I guess that's all for today.

Happy simming!

Remember my Gardening Challenge and 10 Generation Challenge that I've never finished because I my laptop crashed into a pit of darkeness twice or more than that

Album Review | Predicate Not Defined - Cosmosis Indulgence

Hi everyone, apparently this would be the most bad-ass request I've ever gotten in my entire blogging no-so-career thing.  I was offered to make a full album review on Predicate Not Defined's latest album which is called Cosmosis Indulgence and believe me I'm very honoured and also freaked out at the same time because they are legit "otai".  Still taking this as a challenge though.

Read: otai - people who are senior/expert in their field.

Also I had to involve my mom since most of her criticism are dependable, so thanks mom! 

To all my readers, locals and internationals hope you guys will check out this band and give your full support and literally I'm forcing (lol!) you guys to read this entry because it took me days to finally finish this review. 

Can't you see how serious this is? lol

-The Album Review-

After listening to this album for more than 3 times just to get the vibes and thoroughly recognizing all the sounds that is possible to be heard  in this entire masterpiece, I shall conclude that this record is awesome as f*ck!!!

Every track (total of 14) in this album has their very own unique momentum and real hard power. PND actually created their empire through this album by having a moving build-up energy from one song to another.  This is great as it's not something flat and stagnant all the way to the end.  All the songs fluctuates up and down but the powerful momentum amazingly kept building up and up.  I believe they really kicked their pumps up real hard on this record.  


The arrangements were obviously progressive and experimental but somehow the weirdly mismatched sounds actually hold the wonderful elements of surprise.  I'm not talking about one song, but the whole entire album has this kind of style.  Basically my point of view focusing on the guitars and drums that always give you the elements of surprises and wonders of what sounds will be produced next and next and next.

Also to add more, how are these sounds gonna compliment each other and combine beautifully to become a song and also how the songs give out their flows through the entire album without killing its power and momentum.  Can you imagine how awesome the guys from PND who were actually able and genius enough to produce something like this?Neither can I but obviously this album shows their success.

The niche characteristic of this album is that they blend the old school 50s-60s Malay kugiran music into (my most favourite) song, Malay Vivarium and also the iconic theme song from the legendary movie Pendekar Bujang Lapok 's in the final track of this album, The Mustar Anthem.  Not to forget Physic got itself some dance anthem the cheer you up too.
The least favourite to my ear is Hydrogen because the early part of the song is quite disturbing to my ear but it jumps out right to the good part in the middle.  

I'm not gonna tell everything here, buy the album and listen it for yourself.  I swear no regrets will be upon you.

Words can be described; | Power | Great momentum | Moving | Fun | Successful |

P/s: My mom did say that this album is awesome and she likes the drum tracks.  She was all positive when I made her listened to this album.

Hopefully this review did a great favor for everyone and thanks for reading :D

Have a nice day forever!!!

What am I up to these days | Gaming Sims 3 in 2016-Ep. 2

The making of an oddly separated feeding area.

"I have an idea! Why don't make separate rooms for the kitchen and the dining hall?''

Yes it sounded unique and bright as fuck but I had regrets because it took me hours to set the two areas but ended up feeling like having something not like a home but merely creating extra job for me to clean up.

Whatever, here's how they look like before I actually made it into one hall



Also, the only way for the sims to go to the dining hall was by walking through the front corridor that facing the street.  Genius huh? Well yes I am if it's a real house that fights obesity by walking from one room to another.


Btw, this is the entrance hallway.  The only part of the house that actually sits on the ground.


Happy simming!

Also the best part of it that I was the makeup artist both for me and the male model (he did cringed a lot though).  The brief concept for my face was something simple, naturally indie street look, nothing demonic like how I look everyday and some pop of color on the eyes and lips.  For the male model, who is also a singer of this band, I just had to do some contouring and Edward-Cullen the sh*t out of his face.  sorry bruh.

What am I up to these days | Gaming Sims 3 in 2016-Ep. 1

...and lots of gaming.
I am back into Sims 3 just because I really love house decorating and designing weird homes.  It makes me feel wonderful every time I move a furniture around the house.

The old cramp everything in a row

Here's my latest saved file titled "August 2016" and I'm just starting out to design a new floating home for my lovely avatars.

Since this is a "floating house" you can't just build it easily like Sims 4.  It's the old Sims 3 guys so you need hard work, patience and determination to add pillars as many as you should until your area is fully covered with build mode grids.  

Like this;

 See that shadow there, it's my new floating kitchen and dining area because I'm so cool and creative af *sarcastic tone*.

Forgot to screenshot the entrance...lol...

But here's my living area complete with a small bathroom because I forgot to build one somewhere not in the living room. 

Some items are from my old collection of Sims 3 CC

Cheats usually used in my gaming mode and mood because I'm lazy af:



 Yes that is a live aquarium.

 Birds eye view with added decor shelf and a flat screen tv.

Having fun before having 100 children in 100 children challenge I guess.

Epica - Universal Death Squad | with video and lyrics

*source from google*

I'm starting to like the new song from Epica called Universal Death Squad.  The first time I heard it, the music was goddamn overwhelming but the lyrics is coming to mainstream metaphor as compared to their old songs which I don't like that much because I prefer those old kinds of mythical, legends, medieval vocabs masterpieces.

As I listened it more and more, the lyrics totally fit in our current period (duhh) and you have to accept that they have already modernised their music in the past few records.  I think it's awesome for them to be able to deliver more and more powerful music like this (if I'm not a medieval fan lol!). Hope The Holographic Principle would be a blast like my old personal fav Design The Universe album.


And I know you guys wanna sing-a-long too but didn't catch the lyrics do you?

Well here you go..,


"Universal Death Squad"

We embrace judgement day
We embrace new inventions
Find your grace in defeat
We embrace new intentions
Forced on us by decree

We are the ones to change the world now
Still in control of all machinery
We claim the right to pull the trigger and damage your image of honour 
Inventing, improving, creating existence
Embrace the technological remedy

Robotic legions stand in line to carry out
The retribution and effects of this advanced technology
All new inventions have to pay
They have to fight their way to judgement day
(Technological tragedy is near)

We are the ones that rule the world now
You are entrapped by blind inanity
There is no way that you'll revoke your decision now look for distraction
Inventing, improving, creating existence
Embrace the technological elegy

Robotic legions stand in line to carry out 
The retribution and effects of this advanced technology
All new inventions have to pay
They have to fight their way to judgement day
(Technological force)

We are the enhanced natural leaders
Turning righteous men into deceivers

Schemes of the mind 
Absence of soul
Symbol of the triumph of the human race
Cold-blooded kind
Minds are controlled
Doomsday has arrived
There is no escape

I am forever the snake devouring its tail
In search of eternity

We embrace new inventions 
Find your grace in defeat
We embrace new intentions
No one stands in our way

Inventing, improving, creating existence
Embrace the technological misery

Robotic legions stand in line to carry out
The retribution and effects of this advanced technology
All new inventions have to pay
They have to fight their way to judgement day
(Technological times shall flourish)

Fight your (We are your leaders)
Way out (Never displease us)
Show no remorse

What am I up to these days | More goth room decor

I've planned for this curtain makeover like months ago so I'm literally 50% done with 2 rods and a piece of curtain.  Yep you haven't read it wrong, they sell it like 1 piece per pack so you gotta buy 2 packs to make your dreams came through and you money flies through your bank account.  

Basically, I have 2 unhooked rods laying over at the back of my study desk and a single curtain that I used as the door coverings.

So, I managed to drag my boyfriend to come together for curtain hunting, well not really a hunt as I've already got an eye for a few curtain designs that I liked, so we were having just a curtain-buying trip.  Also considered as a training for his legs before Ikea.

My room currently have this washed out yellow old granny kind of curtain and it really bores me.

We went out for some breakfast at the mamak first, had some roti canai and iced tea while I tried to be a lovable cat person but this cat despised me.

"Look me in the eyes you goddamn piece of cute shit!"

Turns out my boyfriend is her favourite hooman -.-''


After that we continue our hunting journey to Kaison

Look what I got!!!! 

I bought 2 for the triangles and add another 1 piece for the red.  

The concept that came out of my mind was;

1) Using the black-white triangles as my day curtain because my room received a direct sunlight and heats up really fast.  So this curtain can cover my window and not altering the color ambience of my room, only making it dim and the material helps in less heat penetration.

2) While the black-red lace are used as my night curtain and darkeness-reflector when I turn off my light source at night, the room will be 20% darker as compared to when I'm using the washed out old yellow curtain. 


As I reached home, I jumped on my bed, remove the old curtain and started slipping through the hooks.

"classic french pleat"

The Goth-y Reveal:

Night

Day

I made a mistake for only hot glueing some loops to the back of the black-white curtains to loop through the bottom rod, so I fell right off the next morning.

"Sunbeam headshot"

So I bought 2 packs these hook clips from Daiso, which I felt like this was the most worthy purchase I've ever made in my whole entire life (lol), and I changed the whole looping system.


They are back up and be fabulous again.

*Proud*

"The look of this is wonderfully satisfying.  I just can't!!!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vanity update!

I've changed my makeup drawer into this acrylic one and it looks so much better and neat (well, after a makeup junk cleaning) compared to this.

SATISFACTION OF A MAKEUP HOARDER!!!


Thanks for reading!
