There is a choice of five elegantly designed outfits from Javabox  Kawanishi and Vidal Boutique Manhattan. Each person is allowed to choose one outfit they like from the Zebra  Collection to keep for themselves. A lot of ladies were very appreciative and anxious to put on their new outfits and wear them out on the SL town tonight.  It's always a very gratifying feeling to be able to help people by giving them a very nice designer gift. So look out Santa, you'll have some sexy helpers tonight. This wasn't the first and wont be the last Designer Gift, given away in Manhattan.

Please welcome a new designer in our city Billy Hadisson from Olegun designs! Billy has severaI interesting items in his shop. He is from Indonesia and he makes the most beautiful Batik dresses. All his dresses have the most wonderful textures and have this lovely bohemian vibe to it. I took the opportunity to see his designs and fell in love with this number. Rich red texture (I just love anything red!) Check out the pics below!



I had the opportunity to talk to Billy about his designs, here is what he had to say...

Paniagua Rubble: Billy, you said your store is a Batik store, please explain.
Billy Hadisson: Yes, batik have many patterns, it all came from different places in Indonesia
the most popular is batik from central java. Different places have their own pattern for example Cirebon- West Java has Batik Mega mendung. Also certain patterns are worn only by nobility. But in general people where all sorts of patterns not just based on where they come from.
The great example is UNESCO designated Indonesian batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on October 2, 2009.
Paniagua Rubble: This is very interesting I will definately be looking into this. The design possiblities are endless and the patterns are so beautiful!

If you want to learn more about Batik patterns check out this link.

This is yet another example of the incredible melting pot of people that exist here in New York.  lPease stop by the store and say hello. I am sure you will just fall in love with his designs.

Big DAY @ Kiko Life: 5K Subscribers & Sit N Win Action!




First, it's our pleasure to tell you all that Kiko Life's Update group MAXXED out yesterday. YES! We hit 5000K members, and had to rush to upgrade our account to the MAXIMUM allowed by Hippo's system.

This is wonderful news for us. Whether it's our great group gifts (of which another will be soon released in celebration of this milestone), or our great sales, or our low-volume non-spam, our group is growing at a fearsome pace!

Last night, we also had another Sit N' Win event with much success!

At one point we had close to 30 people on sim, just trying to find a chair to sit down so they could meet the target and get the gift in the table. The Sit N' Win helps us with traffic, as it provide a fun, social way of getting people to stay on sim for a while.

Between our Free Lipstick promotion, the Sit N Win, MM boards and Lucky Chairs, our traffic today went back up to 12K+! We're verrrrry pleased with all of this as it has positively effected our sales also.

IT'S WONDERFUL!!

Down We Went! Crash!!

It was my usual Lunchtime event with DJ Urbanking in Manhattan City. Everyone was dancing, socializing, laughing and having a good time.Now, I dont know how true it was, and you did'nt hear it from me. I don't even know how the rumor got started. A few people I can't name at this time, to keep their identity hidden, told me that Urbanking's beats were so tight. So jammeriffic(just made that one up) that DJ Urbanking and his turntable crashed Manhattan City. Yes it is true. In the middle of his set, we all got the boot offline. Crash went Manhattan City! Take a good look at this man's photo. If the best music and a good time for all is what your'e looking for. Be quick. Call him up. DJ Urbanking Burner is your man.
