Sera Korea: Don’t let the language barrier stop you!

EDIT (June 2010) – I’m seeing a lot of people landing on this post as a result of searches for ‘Sera Korea’. Regretfully, I have to inform you that the Sera Korea sims no longer exist in Second Life. Consequently, I have removed the teleport link in the post.

The newbie place at Sera Korea is, as you might expect, an orientation all in Korean. But at the end of it is the Sera Korea Freebie Shop, so leg it through that orientation (afraid the region has a landing point at the very start, so unless you run or cheat and use Admin Options to fly [it’s a no-fly zone] then you’ll have to follow the beam to get there) and head into the huge store.

This is just a teeny tiny selection of the items there. Many of the female freebies are the same freebies you see elsewhere, but check out the men’s stuff, as that’s certainly very new!

This is one good outfit in the female side: a schoolgirl’s outfit. I’ve teamed it with Truth’s Kensei hair (1L$ fatpack, and yes, it’s guy’s hair, but looks great on a girl, too!), HOC’s 30L$ chucks (search on Xstreet SL – you’ll soon see their big featured banner ad), Sn@tch’s Messenger Bag (not free; won this in a hunt), and Style Your Destiny’s (now ‘Nooby Doo’s) Voodoo Girl socks in black:

Hop behind the cut for two more outfits: both mannish, and both modelled by a girl :p

Now I want a latte…

Today’s Lemania Indigo Designs dollarbie (one day only at this price, then it’s gone forever, so get it before 27th Feb!) is called ‘Carmel Latte’ (although possibly it’s supposed to be ‘Caramel Latte’? Either way, it’s making me hungry!)

Walkabout: Newbie Areas – Ambling Around Ambat Infohub

This is the second in my alphabetical Walkabout series, where I take a look around a Welcome Area or Infohub (where newbies might find themselves first rezzing on Mainland). Today I explored the next official landmark I had, and that was Ambat Infohub, created by Osprey Therian.

Ambat is a small, but very pretty little infohub that has an NCI (New Citizens Inc) Infonode attached to it. So, while it’s small, it’s packed with useful stuff for newbies.

Hop behind the cut for some screencaps showing what I found at the infohub and the surrounding regions.
