The new Harvest Moon Café and Yordie’s Zen Garden is about as complete as I can make it. It is the culmination of maybe three months of part-time tinkering, but it was very enjoyable to create. As with every one of my Japanese projects, I’m not satisfied with the results but by putting the work into perspective against other gardens, I am happy with the result.
Performing Demonstration Geisha Show
I’ve spent some time this week trying to prepare something resembling a geisha show, but I just don’t have the time to put together a proper show. So, I’m using my alt to play music on the koto while I put on a dance demonstration. I hope this little performance will give guests a sense of what an actual geisha show might look like on the ochaya’s small stage.
My Alt becomes Maiko Suzuki
My alt has been given the screen name “Suzuki” in honor of my days in Yoshiwara Okiya, but please don’t expect her to have anything to say because she’ll be running on my laptop while I perform on my desktop.
Just An Informal Presentation
This will be a very informal opening of the garden. I’ll be inviting friends throughout the weekend to come and visit. I plan to be at the garden for several hours on Saturday and Sunday, then again other times this month before I take the build down in September.
The build is on one-quarter Homestead, so the sim is limited to a maximum of 20 people at a time, and there are three other tenants to consider. So if you are a reader and would like to drop by, please send me an IM @ Yordie Sands inworld, and I’ll beam you on in asap. Photographers bring your cameras! *smile*
