Where is my tea?

Was drowning in spreadsheets at work when I heard a buzz in my mobile. A message from a dear friend stating “It has been 5 years. Time goes by fast”.

And indeed it does. Five years ago, this same day, October 10th, around the time I got that message today, I was listening “She just passed away”.

I remember that day as a bad dream. The absence of news. The phone calls to everyone to try and find out what happened. The rush to the hospital when we finally knew where she was and the sad news upon our arrival. Then breaking the bad news to our friends. The next day friends coming from all over the country to be with you in your last moments on earth.

How was it possible? We had seen Mamma Mia just 4 days before. we were laughing and singing. We had so many plans. So many things to do together. And then… then you were gone. No more movies, no more laughter, no more singing, no more traveling.

You are still in my friends list, your number is still on my mobile, you’ll always be in my heart.

Five years have passed and it seems like yesterday.

You went for tea and never came back.

Miss you girl!

Me and my Team were honoured to see our Portuguese Way project approved for LEA.

LEA19 was build not as a big installation but more like a realistic landscape where you can hang out with your friends and (hopefully) have a lot of fun exploring everything and getting all the info spread around.


Hidden in a cave you will find a totally black maze which will bring to you unexpected feelings. We called it Blindness, based on Saramago’s book with the same title (click on the board above the entrance for a blindfold).


This said we are promoting a photo safari at the SIM so that we can see it through your eyes and here are the rules (nothing too complicated no worries):

1. The Safari will run through the whole month of October.

2. Everyone can join. For news and information please join free the Owl’s Bay Group or send Winter Wardhani an IM

3. The pictures have to be taken at the LEA19 – The Portuguese Way sim

4. The pics cannot be processed outside SL. You can use all the inworld resources for photography (windlight, photo huds and so on)

5. The pictures will be exhibited in November (exact date to be announced) at LEA19 Art Center for two weeks and will then be moved to my Gallery inworld.

6. Participants can send as many pics as they like, FULL PERMS, to Winter Wardhani or by email to theportugueseway.lea19@gmail.com until October 31. We will try to show as much as possible from each participant, in a minimum 2 of pics.

7. Please don’t forget to rename your pic (ex: LEA19 by Avatar Resident – your SL name, not screen name).


By entering the Safari you agree to let your pictures be shown in Second Life and other social media sites, credits duly given to the photographer and just for information on LEA19 activities.

The photos will not be sold or otherwise commercialized by any person or avatar related to the LEA19-The Portuguese Way sim.

Everyone is welcome. Invite your friends and lets have some fun.

Strawberry Singh has these monday memes every week and I have been wanting to join in, but with no blogging, I just didn’t feel like doing it.

Now that I decided to restart my blogging here it goes:

Here are the Rules:

Meme Instructions: I’m giving you two options to choose from this week. I will be doing both of them but you guys can pick and choose, unless you’d like to do both as well.
1. Meme Suggested by Mr. Jefferson: “What does your avatar get up to after you log out?”
2. Blog about one of your closest friends in Second Life.

Well Winter insisted that I should do the first one and she sent me the following note:

“Dear Miss Berry

Thank you so much for letting me have a word. I am affraid that my life isn’t easy when my human logs out. She is always making a mess and doesn’t like to clean or do any type of work. So I am the one cleaning the house, doing chores, ironing her clothes.

Gardening Ironing

She also does not like to work out and I have to go to the gym when she’s out so that she can fit in those mesh clothes she insists on wearing.


I have a quite stressful life and to help her pay the rent she makes me go and rob banks… last time it went terribly wrong and I ended up in jail.

Bank rob

Hope that when she reads this she will come and bail me out

Yours trully

Winter (the real pixelated one)”


Of course I bailled her out and by now she must be ironing my clothes for tonight.

Back to blogging

It has been sometime since I wrote blog posts. My former domain name expired and it took me a long time to decide if I should start doing it again.

I finally made up my mind and here it goes.

Welcome to my brand new blog and keep tuned for some opinions about everything and nothing and cool pictures from my wanderings in Second Life.


Back in the days
