Tag Archives: Farmville


Life is like FarmVille – (1) you can only enjoy the game if all what you have is intended for others’ benefit and appreciation rather than for them to envy; (2) you work hard not to hoard but to be able to give the best gifts available; (3) you keep on giving as long as you can; (4) you don’t expect anything in return if you give something; (5) you can be creative and resourceful but you are not supposed to cheat; (6) you can be a better or the best achiever but never a loser; (7) you are accountable for your negligence but there will always be others who are willing to help you out and a chance to make up; (8) it requires critical considerations before you take any actions; (9) you are free to dream and make plans and there are different ways to achieve it; (10) ask and you shall receive; (11) you need to be patient for everything has its own time; (12) you need to stop wanting if you have enough of what you need; (13) focus on your goal instead of complaining and comparing; (14) you don’t actually need to follow trends or imitate others’ ideas since uniqueness and simplicity convey significance; (15) and most importantly, there is life after playing just as there is eternal life after your existence. Whereas you play to enhance your life and not to waste it, you exist to receive eternal life and not to lose it.

How to capture a screen without installing a snapshot software

Requirement: Microsoft Windows        

1: Display the image which you wish to capture.        

2: Press the Print Screen key (abbreviated as “PrtSC” or “PrntScrn” which is usually accompanied by “SysRq”) when you are ready to capture a screen. It automatically stores the image in the Clipboard.        

3: Open Paint, PowerPoint or any program which can open a Bitmap file (.bmp).        

4: Press Ctrl+V (or click “Paste” under “Edit” in the Menu bar).        

5: Save the newly created image file. You may save it as *.tif, *tiff, *.gif , *.jpg, *.jpe or *.jpeg (commonly accepted on Facebook, Friendster and Myspace).        

(Note: Paint and PowerPoint actually produce poor image quality so I used Adobe Photoshop Elements 7. Open this program before capturing the screen. Click “File”, then “New” and choose “Image from Clipboard” instead of  “Blank File”. Don’t forget to save it.        

This is what i have just created using Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 with a single click enhancement.        



The image reveals my current status (lol). If you’ve noticed, I have 44 items in my gift box. I thought I could have up to a thousand of gifts as long as they come from your Facebook friends’ posts (through filtering –  http://www.facebook.com/home.php?filter=app_102452128776) but I found out that gift limit was raised from 30 to 50 items. You have to use/sell ’em before opening gift requests, though.

This FarmVille Freak is Goin' Nowhere

I joined Facebook in 2006 with only about 5 friends . I eventually forgot to visit my account for there was not much to do. Until one of my closest friends invited me in July 2009, I decided to create another account.

I wasn’t enthusiastic about Facebook until I accepted game invitations. I first played VampireWars but I unexpectedly enjoyed FarmVille more. Since then, I stopped blogging and spent most of my time, some precious and supposed-to-be-productive time, clicking and maneuvering my mouse. My goal was to get a villa so I kept playing to reach Level 34. I wanted to stop playing but I can’t help myself. New features keep on coming and I’m always tempted to try them. What really made it hard for me to abandon my farm were the Christmas Seasons items and free Fuel Refills. I was also inspired to design my farm when I found out about FarmVille Art. It took me a couple of months to enjoy it. I was thinking about  mastering all the crops but I know this is too much to dream of.

I may be going nowhere in playing FarmVille but I guess this is better than playing offline games. At least, Facebook games allow its users to have some social interactions where they help and support each other. It’s just like keeping a long distance relationships and it isn’t bad at all. Some games may allow stealing but it’s not that offensive and it doesn’t violate human rights or ethical principles. I believe, the game designers don’t wish to promote such a bad habit into real life. They only wanted to provide an option for those who are hopeless. Now, it’s up to the players if they choose to be more patient, work harder, develop better skills and think wiser or become little wretches.

I’m absolutely certain that I’m not a Facebook addict because there’s only one item (#4) that I assert to be true. Writing on this blog is a good sign that I have control over my time. I thank God for all His blessings — for giving me a chance to live and wisdom on how to live life.
