Cream-san and Cafe-san, finally!!

wpid-wp-1442078633495.pngYesterday, while I was on my way to STGCC 2015, I checked my Neko Atsume game as usual to see if my latest setup could finally lure out the elusive Cafe-san. To my surprise, both Cream-san and Cafe-san showed up! Together! The last two cats I’m missing!

Cream-san at least has been leaving fishies for me occasionally after the first and only sighting, during which I totally forgot to take a photo, but Cafe-san had never showed up before! To say that I was very happy is a huge understatement!

The one thing I decided to try in order to get Cafe-san to appear was to remove other items that will attract other rare cats. Lo and behold, Cafe-san appeared right off. 😀 But now I’m wondering if this is a widely known tip that I have somehow missed… ._.

Now I’m looking forward to the Ver1.4.0 update that’s coming later this month with Autumn items! :) Maybe there will be more cats?

Playing: Rabi Tobi (ラビとび)

Lately, while I’m still trying to get Cream-san and Cafe-san in Neko Atsume, I’ve also been trying out a few other games. The newest and cutest of them all is this very new mobile game called  “Rabi Tobi (ラビとび)” or “Jumping Rabbit” that was just released on 4th September, and I really want to write about and share this game with everyone.


I first spotted the game made by Japanese developer Cygames, Inc. on QooApp blog about its Pre-Register bonus. One look at the images showing the beautiful storybook style ingame art and how it’s played, and it had all of my interest (you know, other than the fact that cute animals are one of my biggest weakness).

Look how cute the art and that rabbit is!!

Miss Kiri’s Neko Atsume posts

When I was searching for the installation and play guides previously, I came across Miss Kiri’s guide (it’s in Traditional Chinese) and was impressed by the interesting way the information was presented and the animated gifs showcasing the cats. Although ultimately I chose another guide, I never forgot Miss Kiri’s post.

How can I forget when there’s a cute cat like this?!

Some days ago, I chanced upon her site again, and decided to share her posts to English fans. She included a lot a lot of screenshots and images so it’s actually pretty easy to make sense of.

FFXIV: ARR Heavensward Astrologian Wallpaper -modified-

With the Heavensward expansion coming soon, I’ve been switching to use the officially released wallpapers. When the ones with the concept art of the three new jobs “Dark Knight”, “Astrologian” and “Machinist” were released, I was disappointed to find that they had a nice plain almost white background because I can’t stand bright backgrounds. :(

So I made my own modification to the Astrologian wallpaper, since it’s the one job I want to try the most.


I could have gone with a simple one color background to just make it darker, but I remember downloading a nice background that I found some time ago. So I combined the two.


The stars in the background are pretty fitting, aren’t they? And here’s the result!


While it is not the most balanced of pieces, I don’t think I did too badly for my purpose. Oh, the super dark bottom edge is deliberate, because my Windows Taskbar has transparency and any words showing through the tabs always disorientates me.

If you like any of the above, click on the images to get the original 1920×1080 wallpapers. :)

Travel to Ul’dah FREE via Gold Saucer

Did you know? If you take the Airship from Gridania or Limsa Lominsa to Gold Saucer, then take the Airship from Gold Saucer to Ul’dah, not a single gil will be spent?

Selceriar Lunaxiel 28_04_2015 01_18_50

I was so happy when I discovered it, since I’m the sort who prefers to spend as little money as possible on traveling. And I visit the Gold Saucer everyday anyway to buy the Mini Cactpot Ticket, or play a few rounds of Triple Triad on weeks when the Tournament is ongoing, so it’s like a free airship ride with a quick transit stop at the fancy casino. 😀

To get Tiny Rat minion

Reminded to self, to get the Tiny Rat minion, I have to complete the FATE named “Attack on Highbridge: Act III”, then purchase from the NPC “Chachamun” at Eastern Thanalan x22 y21.

PS. I added the bit of code needed to make certain FFXIV links show tooltip from The Lodestone! Yay for mouseover magic!

*Update 1* I got the minion! But not without trying to pull my hair off. Apparently, the FATE “Attack on Highbridge: Act III” is the fourth part of a chain of FATEs, starting with “Attack on Highbridge: Prelude”. Some kind fellow has written in detail about this, so send some love his way.

*Update 2* I checked back at the NPC to try buy another of the minion and Chachamun doesn’t want to sell it to me anymore! Boo! It seems there is a reset of some kind.

One of my sisters reported the same thing then proceeded to do the whole FATE chain again. The result is that Chachamun is now selling the Tiny Rats to her again, and she sent 5 rats to my mail so we won’t have to go through the FATEs again… *eyes our FC house’s mailbox suspiciously for squeaking sounds*
