Mokara 1 - Fall 2015

Last update/Next update

The Mokara Family
Hans is 43, Yin is 40, Melina is 11, David is 3 and Sam is 2
Melina: Iwas so happy when mom and dad told me we were moving. After years of saving they ware finally able to actually buy a house. It's not that big, and David and Sam still have to share a room, but it's ours!
We now have a garden too. We used to have garden before, but it was so small, now there is lots and lots of space, we even have a corner where we grow our own vegetables. We don't have the money right now to do more with the garden, but it's the thought that counts!
Dad is busy with his job a lot. He now is the principal of SimsVille High, and he wants to make sure the first day goes great, when the school opens in 2016. He's chatting with the principal of the elementary school so they are on the same page.
He does try to be home most of the time, and to work from home. But David and Sam are taking up all of his time. The same goes for mom, it's frustrating sometime, but understandable I guess.
It make me appriciate those moment I have my parents all to myself. It's sound like I'm soft, and maybe I am, but I don't want to be like my cousin, Jo, who doesn't like her home and family. Ok, that sounds harsh, but I get the feeling like that's the truth, She's counting the days untill she can leave the house, and doesn't listen to her parents at all, she just does what she wants, without considering anybody else!
One day mom wanted to have a talk with me. She knows that I'm still young, but she thinks it's time to think about the future. Maybe she's right, but I'm only 11, I think I want something to do with the environment.
One thing I already know for sure, is that it would be great if I could find a love like mom and dad have. Somtimes I walk into the kitchen and see them hugging, it's nice to see that they are still so much in love, even after all this years.
But for now I'm not yet thinking about dating. Not that mom and dad would allow me to go out on my own anyway. I have a best friend, Matthew Zanobi, but I don't think of him that way. We can talk for hours on the phone, about almost everthing, but that's it, and there are no other boys in the picture at the moment.
Most of the time, I spend reading. Mom and dad don't ask me to help around, and do most of the housework themselfs. When I try to help out, they just say they want me to focus on my studies so I can go to university one day.
I still haven's decided if I want to go, but there's no harm in trying to get there and work hard. And since dad will be my new principal next year, it's for the best I proove that I can make it without his help.

  • Since I've build new school when I redid SimsVille, I decided to let them 'open' in 2016. So for now al simchildren and simteens are still going to another school.
  • I know Sam and David aren't in the update a lot, but when uploading the pictures, I realised I didn't take much of them. Anyway they are doing fine, David will be 4 next winter, and Sam in the winter of 2017. I will be glad when they are finally children!

Birthdays - Fall 2015

And here we are again, with the birthdays of this season!
First of, so I don't forget again, is the announcement of the upcomming birth of the fist chilf of Mariëtte Alenis and Bai Zang, the will be welcomming their unexpected extention to the family in the Spring of 2016.
Next we visit the Terrano family. Where Stella had a rather easy but tiring pregnancy. She spend most of her pregnancy in bed.
But in the end it was all worth it, when she was able to hold her little girl in her arms, and showed her to her husband. Welcome little Enya Terrano!
And last but not least, it's time for a visit to the Draper household, where little Lucas Draper is celebrating his 1ste birthday.
Personally I think he looks a lot like his half-siblings.
Anabel Spits
And Anthony Spits.
Wich means all three must look like their father, since that's the only parent they have in common.

  • I was always wondering who Anabel and Anthony looked liked the most, and now I see Lucas, I can see they look like each other, wich means they all look like their father.
  • Jason still is unaware of the existance of Anabel and Anthony, Kristianne broke up with him as soon as she found out she was pregnant and never told him.
  • I'm sorry for the crappy pictures of the twins, but they are the only ones I have!
  • Enya is looking so sweet! She doesn't have those big alien-eyes (wich I don't like) but then again her morther doesn't have those either, so we're good there!
  • I love the picture of Mariëtte, lieing on the bed thinking, we will visit them, and get a look in her thoughts soon!

Belio 1 - Summer 2015

Last update/Johanna's next update/Next update

The Belio Family
Bram is 41, Ling is 40, Johanna is 17, Stephan is 7 and Steven is 7
(Anna Min is 16)
Johanna: I don't know why mom and dad wanted to move. Our old house was just fine. I would have understand if they were able to buy a house, but no, it's another rental!
It wouldn't have mattered in wich house we lived, I was grouned anyway! The last time Anna and I were out, I desided to get a tattoo, and I love my bat wings! Unfortunatly mom and dad don't! So to punish me, for doing this whitout their permission, they grounded me!
I tryed convincing dad to let me go out again, I promissed it would just be the museum, but mom walked by and could see I was just telling something to get out.
It's dreadfull having to go to bed early because of pure boredom, because there is no other reason to go to bed early.
Of course I have lot's of time to work on my grades now! Mom and dad want me to go to university, and I want a way out of here, so this is my chance! I'm working hard on my skills and homework.
I'm trying to convince Anna to go to, so we can be at university together. It would be great to have Anna there with me. She's my best friend, but since we are both grounded we don't see each other that much anymore.
Sometimes I call her late at night, and then we sneak out. We both fear the day we get caught, but it's much more fun then staying at home every day and night!
Mom wants me to watch the boys while she's at work, and dad is in the shop. But even thouhh they are only 6, they don't need much looking after. They play in the community playground, and our neighbor plays with them all the time, I don't know where she finds the time, because she has 2 little girls ate home!
And when the finally come home, the play in the garden with the stuff dad crafts. At some point I have to tell them to do their homework. I don't really care if they do it, I did what mom asked me to do, and told them to do it.
Dad mostly is at home. He's constantly crafting, so he can re-open his shop. Sometimes I wonder why I need to watch the boys, when dad is at home. When I tell them to do something, they run to dad and ask him is they really need to do that! I hate it when they do that, but in a few months I'm out of here!

  • I love Jo's tattoo, but I figured parents wouldn't like it if their 17-year old would get a tattoo without even telling them.
  • I don't know why, but Jo always kept a little bit to herself since the boys were born, maybe she was always doing something else when the family was doing something together. Like every 17-year old she isn't too fond of her younger brothers and can't wait to get away to university, where she will go in the winter of 2016.
  • I know I said this update would be posted on thursday, but I really haven't been home to write it! With some luck the next update, a birthday-update, will be here by Sunday.

Min 1 - Summer 2015

Last update/Anna's next update/Next update

The Min Family
Quan is 45, Chu is 44, Anna is 16 and Benny is 10
(Jo Belio is 17)
Anna: I love high school! Not school itself, I hate school, but the fact that I'm home early, much earlier than Benny, that's the thing I love!Those few hours all to myself, the peace and quiet, I absolutely love it! Sometimes I ask Laura or Jo to come home with me so we can just hang out. Other days I just enjoy it all by myself.
And then Benny gets home, and the quiet is gone! My friends leave, and I get stuck with him. He's not a difficult kid, just an annoying. He plays videogames all the time.
And when mom gets home, he rushes out to greet her, he is 10 you know, and he still runs outside to greet mommy! I think I gave that up by the time I got 7 or so. To make it all look even better, he then ask her to help him with his homework, wich she does. Of course she then sees the pile of homework I leave on the floor every day.
Most of the time she desides to ignore it, and goes to do her own stuff. As long as I don't get a warning, or don't get expelled, I think she fine with it all. Disappointed but fine with it.
Lately mom and dad gave me premission to go out. Go anywhere I want, as long as it's in SimsVille, or SimsVille Up Hill. So when mom is home, I call Jo and we're off. Most of the time we go to the 'Fun & Games' where we play some poker. It's mostly a teen hang out, so it's pretty nice there.
One night mom and dad even let me go to Simmeria! Jo of course went with me. We went to 'Club Dante', we had some drinks at the bar and sang some karaoke. It wasn't something to go to Simmeria for, we have such bars in SimsVille too, but Simmeria is something like the forbidden land, when you're allowed to go, everything seems to much cooler!
I think Simmeria was about the last time I was allowed to go out. The next day, a saturday, mom got a call from my principal, I didn't even think they called on saturdays, maybe he made an expetion since my principal married my autn. He said that if my grades kept slipping like this, I was going to get expelled, so I got grounded, and was forced to doing homework.
They still allowed me to invite Jo over, and I was so happy for that fact. I don't think I would have survived without her. But she's not allowed to stay long, she's grounded too, because her parents found out she gotten a tattoo without their permission. She's allowed to come over, but has to be home on time.
One day mom sat me down for a talk about university and my future. She told me that her and dad are willing to take out a loan to let me go to university, if I can get my grades up. I really want to go, I do, but I don't think I can get my grades up, not to the grade I need to get accepted. She told me to think about it.
Later I also talked to dad about it. He really wants me to go, but he needs to know that I'm going for it all the way, because they don't want to take out a loan for nothing. I know Jo is going to university, and I really wanted to talk to Jo about it, but I got banned from the phone too.
I tried to think about something else that night. Mom and dad were out, and I get left home with Benny. He actually is quite smart when you take the time to talk to him. He said, that when it's his time he will take the chance with both hands, not only for the opportunity to learn, but also to meet new sims. Maybe he's right, but I want to go only to meet new sims and not to learn.
I still have 2 years to think about it, and I allready know it's going to be hard.

  • Like every parents Quan and Chu have the want for their daughter to go to university. Anna on the other hand, has the want too, but doesn't put any efford into learning, she hardly has any skillpoint, and her grades are bad! The fact is that the family hardly has any money, so it would be sad if they took out a loan for their daughter and that she ruins is. So I'm still undesided if Anna will be going to university or not.
  • Next update, hopefully, on thursday!

Zang 2 - Summer 2015

Last update/Bai's next update/Next update

The Zang Family
Wang is 55, Chao is 52 and Bai is 23
(Mariëtte Alenis is 21)
Chao: I'm glad we were forced to move to this apartment. The one we used to live in before was getting demolished, but I don't regret it. And it's so mich better then the trailer parc, the neighbors here are much nicer, but that's not so hard!
Wang has, once again, given up on a hobby. He stopped writing his book, and is now, yet again, painting! I'm fine with it, but he has trouble letting go of things, so he doesn't sell one piece, and keeps them all. I fear that our apartment will be filled with all of his art, and to be honest, it's not that good!
Well at least it keeps him busy when I'm at work, and he isn't. He's a party-DJ, and works nights so he never goes to work early.
Bai is also a party-DJ, so they are both at home all day long, and they don't do a thing! It's not that they are lazy, they just don't mind all the dirt, they hate cleaning, and love having fun! So they paint, play violin, or dance trhoughout the day. When I get home I can do everything else. Sometimes I think they forget, everybody else likes having fun too.
The same goes for the dog. I can still remember the day Bai and I went to buy Rambo. Bai was so happy and full of promisses!
He kept it up from some months, but now, years later, I'm the one the one taking care of the dog.
And in the end, Bai just spoiles him by letting him sleep on his bed!
I complained to Wang about it once, and he started having fun on the couch! I have to admit, it was fun! But I feared Bai comming in any second!
But Bai isn't home much lately. When he's not working, he's constantly out, to god knows where. He has been feeling down lately, and thinks that going out will get him over it, I have serious doubts about that, but it's his life.
Before I knew it, or was even ready for it, he brought home a girl. Her name is Mariëtte, and I don't like her that much. She doesn't have a lot of money and although we don't have that much either, I have the feeling she's after Bai's money!
I try not to think about Bai and Mariëtte but it's hard. Because I love my son, and I want to best for him.
And it's hard not to think about them, when they are in the next room, always! She comes over almost every day, and stays most of the nights too. Since she's looking for work, and unemployed at the moment, they both have time to stay in bed almost all day long!
Since it's summer I try to stay outside as much as I can so I don't see them that much. Wang isn't worried at all, he's hardly ever worried about anything, so he stays inside to paint.
Well, I think he will start worrying now! We hadn't seen Mariëtte some days, and I was starting to think they had broken up, I had asked Bai about it, but he said they were still together. Then, one night, he got a phone call from her, informing him she was pregnant! I couldn't believe my ears! It's not nice of me, but I was kind off hoping Bai would break up with her, instead he desided to move in with her and help her raise the baby! I'm more and more convinced that she doesn't want Bai, but she's just after his money.

  • Chao isn't mean at all, but she doesn't like Mariëtte, so I figured she wouldn't like to see her precious boy leaving the house to live with her.
    But I like Mariëtte, I think she looks great!
  • Chao has only 2 neat points, but Wang and Bai have none, so they leave a mess all over the place, with Chao has to clean up because she's the neatest!
  • I don't like the fact that Wang is a party-DJ at his age, but he has no ambition at all to get promoted!
  • With a little bit of luck the next update will be up on tuesday, I really want to get done with this round, because I already finished it in game, and I really want to get started with round 9, because I have some plans!
  • Mariëtte and Bai have already profiles, but they are not yet listed in the family index, I will get that done as soon as I've played them for the first time.
