Best Mates Squad

For the past few seasons, my squad and I have been playing Fortnite (instead of League) so when MadPea made these awesome golf carts, I immediately knew I had to do a pic with my best mates. The new season of Fortnite introduced all new ATKs that we absolutely love and usually my cuzzy is our designated driver. So in this picture, you’ll see me sporting the Bandolier look, my cuzzy wearing the Redline look, and Jin is rocking the spot-on Reaper aka John Wick look.

Getting this scene set up was a bit more difficult than I had thought! I knew I wanted the party bus in back as well as a glider for someone to fly in the scene on. However, I couldn’t find anything in world that were close to what you would find in Fortnight, so I started piecing things together from other items, making a make-shift laser-shark glider and a rudimentary party bus. However, the golf cart from MadPea was perfect as is!

These MadPea Krazy Karts are fully functioning vehicles, seating up to three avatars with different sit animations. The car can be set to everyone, group only, or owner only. You can find these golf carts at The Gacha Garden where there is a total of 9 Commons, 1 Rare, and 1 Seed of Inspiration item to win from this set.

Tropical Afternoon Treats

Some of my favorite everyday fruits are peaches and strawberries, but in this summer heat, I treated myself to some more tropical fruits to cool off under the shade of trees by the stream – some juicy watermelon, succulent pineapple, and heavenly sweet mangosteen. With mangosteen, mainly native to Southeast Asian, is a bit more rare to find. Luckily I do not have to travel far as Vivian Omizu, creator of Pillows, brought a great collection of mouth-watering fruits, including a basket of mangosteen, into SL for us.

This batch of sweet and tangy mangosteen brings me back to childhood. Growing up in an Asian household, eating fruit was mainly a family event/dessert. Mangos, lychee, longyan were common to snack on, but mangosteen was not common at all for my family. But when we were able to find some ripe assortments from a local vendor, we were in heaven. As simple as something like eating fruit together as a family, though it might seem so uneventful, these times were happy times. Sweetness to satiate the sweet tooth in me, surrounded by the love of family, taking the time to relax and enjoy the intriguing way food is integrated in our culture.

These were happy moments, and now, I reflect upon this as I munch on my mangosteen in serene solitude with the sound of the ocean waves splashing upon the shore nearby, and soothed by the gentle lullaby of the running stream near my cabin on the island. Funny how something as simple as eating some fruit can bring back such potent memories of love and belonging.
