Nice Architecture Design!

While roaming around SL, saw this special design place for rent…

 Exterior

Interior

Notice that from the outside, we are not able to see inside. But from the inside, the view is superb. We are able to see outside and there is still a stage for events. Nice!!

This area is very near SLPD SWAT HQ.  For those that are interested, please let me know.. I will provide the SLURL.

My first product for JT-inc.com

Spent many hours thinking of my first product for JT-inc.com. Came across a book with a nice pic of a Nyonya Kebaya. That’s it! it’s going to be JT-inc.com first product. Did a research on wiki and other places on Kebaya. Basically, excerpt from Wikipedia, a kebaya is “A Kebaya is a traditional blouse worn by Indonesian and Malaysian women, sometimes made from sheer material and usually worn with a sarong, batik, or other traditional knitted garment such as a songket with a colorful motif.”

 After many hours and hours on my design, I got my first product.. I was so excited and immediately sent a notice to my JT-inc.com group to grab it free!! Alas, in my excitement, I attached the wrong object in my notice and haha (I attached a white plain skirt and a boring t-shirt). What a day! My first notice and I got it wrong. Luckily, thanks to Tanglyn, I managed to get it right the second time and she become my first model….

 My second model on the same Kebaya was Rollin. Now, let see how the two stand side by side…

Looking at them… I must say that it was a satisfying thing… more products to come… 🙂

Meeting at Lion City

Alvin Korvin initiated this meeting of Singaporeans in SL as the group swells above 400 members. It was an interesting sight.. I was a bit late but still got the chance to see many Singaporean Residents there (at Lion City).

I was honoured to be asked by Alvin about my new group JT-inc.com. For those that do not know about my group, it is something that I conceptualise to understand the needs of the residents and at the same time, make things (which is one of my hobby) for SL. Most of the items are given FREE to the group for testing and feedback. Some of them are kind enough to become my model for my product.. haha

BTW, a contest is going on to look for Avatar with the Most Asian Face…

Second Life is 4 years old – SL4B!!

The day is here, SL4B (Second Life 4th Birthday) on 23rd June 2007. The area was supposed to open at 12:00pm SL time. I waited patiently for it and when the time comes, I tried to teleport myself to the party…  What a disappointment… I could not (no reason given). I tried many times until I gave up and contacted the organizer. Was told that the area was open already. So, again I tried and tried and finally, I was IN!! the minimap is just a patch of GREEN!! It was incredible to host so many people at the same area. I was filled with excitement.. so many residents…first time to see so many Lindens around. I wandered around and finally stopped at area SL04 – SERVER FULL!!! And I cannot enter the region. Waited and tried many methods… finally I gave up!! Happy Birthday, Second Life!!
PS: Many residents have the same problem too!!
 

Ok..ok.. no more grumbling.. I still have some pictures to share…

Many residents are waiting…. including myself

End…. 😦

PHILANTHROPY IN VIRTUAL WORLDS EVENT

Attended this event yesterday. An eye opener as there are more than 200 residents attending. See this minimap as it speaks for itself.

Speakers for that day was Philip Rosedale, Founder and CEO of Linden Labs and Jonathan Fanton, President of the MacArthur Foundation. The event was a mixture of “LIVE” interview with residents able to send IM to ask question and selected questions will be answered “LIVE”. Some more information on the event itself.

PHILANTHROPY IN VIRTUAL WORLDS EVENTUSC ANNENBERG PUBLIC DIPLOMACY ISLANDFRIDAY, JUNE 22, 8:00 AM – 10:30 AM SLT Advancing collaboration and human developmentAn event hosted by the USC Center on Public Diplomacy Please join us for a conversation with Linden Lab CEO Philip Rosedale (a.k.a. Philip Linden) and Jonathan Fanton, President of the MacArthur Foundation, for a discussion about how philanthropy in virtual worlds might better the real world. How might philanthropies capitalize upon the“virtual revolution” to advance the public interest? How can the international nature of virtual worlds best be leveraged? How should charitable funds — real or virtual —  be distributed to non-profit causes? These are just a few of the questions framing this discussion, but we want you to come and ask more questions and share your thoughts. Plus, meet Philip Linden and Jonathan Fanton, as well as a host of others from the foundation, nonprofit, education, gaming, humanitarian, and public policy sectors.

Finally, my own website www.jt-inc.com

After struggling mentally for some time, I finally made the first step to acquire a domain name on 12th June 2007 (www.jt-inc.com). Many names floated pass me and finally, I decided to call my domain JT-inc.

What is JT-inc? It is my personal dream of owning something that I love to do… design clothes and etc for SL (Although I have done similar in another 3-D environment program, it was not this big). It is something that I wish I could find in SL but yet to find it. Therefore, I founded JT-inc.com in SL too.

JT-inc will be a place for beautiful members and any person who wishes to become beautiful and better in SL or RL. In this group, I will provide free goodies and also announce new apparel for members.

 Watch out for this logo…

Please help to spread the words and join this group for FREE! Do a search in SL in GROUPS. It is just that simple.

REST IN PEACE, Gabbie Beck (RL name Jennifer)

A piece of bad news to share with everyone… Got this IM from SLPD SWAT Group 😦

 “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of MP Gabbie Beck (RL name Jennifer) who had been a concientious member of SWAT for the past 2 months.  She passed away on 10th June 2007, a week after having suffered an annurysm and spending the last week of her life in intensive care.  This fun, kind thoughtful girl will be missed by all at SWAT. We will hold a memorial service for her later this week.
Rest in peace Gabbie”

Life is so volatile….  although I am not close to her.. I have seen her a few times at SLPD SWAT headquarter. My heart goes to her family members and close friends in RL and SL. SLPD SWAT is kind enough to provide consellors for those that could not bear the lost…

 BTW, Officer Colbyson from SLPD SWAT was kind enough to make a sword to commemorate her.

What’s so Interesting about Second Life??

For a start, I am not sure what is so interesting about Second Life. After roaming around aimlessly for days at Help Island and teleporting through the many regions, I finally found a place call home, Lion City. I met many like minded people there and make many friends. Who says sitting in front of the computer is isolating yourself from the world??

In this virtual world, you met all kind, types of people.. good, bad, you name it, you get it.. you must be thinking this is a crazy world, what the hell am I doing here… Let me tell you, that’s the beauty of it. So I walk, fly, teleport around and met wonderful people and friends..

There is protest, there are law enforcer (haha, I’m one of them from SLPD SWAT.. will talk more about that later)
