FarmvilleSecrets Exposed

I am addicted to Facebook's Farmville actually I'm still on level 42 and still working to reach the highest level Farmville can offer. While browsing Yahoo, I read about this so called "Farmville Secrets", quite interesting huh for a fanatic like me, who could ignore this kind of article. So here it is the so called Secrets of Farmville now exposed.

Article recopied from Yahoo! Games

With almost 80 million users, Farmville's by far the biggest game on Facebook. But how can you get ahead of your friends? We've done the math: follow these tips, and you'll be raking in the (pretend) money in no time.

Easy as 1, 2, 3


When choosing which crop to buy, unleash your inner capitalist and focus on profitability. Here's how to figure it out: take the cost of the seeds, add the charge for ploughing a plot -- which is 15 coins -- and there's your cost. Subtract that from the price your crop fetches when you sell it to get your profit. Divide the profit by the number of hours the crop takes to mature, and you'll have a measure of the profitability of one plot of that particular product.

Take strawberries. At four hours, they're one of the fastest beginner crops to mature, and at just 10 coins, one of the cheapest to plant. 10 coins per plot, plus a 15 coin ploughing fee makes a total cost of 25 coins. They sell for 35 coins, so you make a 10 coin profit. Divide that by the four hours they take to mature, and you'll arrive at the profitability: 2.5 coins per hour per plot.

Sound good? Actually, no, not really, although it's far from the worst. Blueberries, unlocked at level 17, are a much better four-hour crop, with a profitability of 6.5 -- but hold out until level 20, and you'll unlock tomatoes, which are a top performer at a little over 14 coins per hour per plot.

Are You Experienced?

It's not quite that simple, though. You've got to get some experience behind you in order to unlock the better crops, and the best way to do that is with quick-turnover crops, because no matter whether the crop gives you one, two, or three (or zero) experience points, you always get an extra one for ploughing the plot. Plough more often, and you'll level up more often. Hint: if you really want to level up quickly, buy a bunch of hay bales at five XP a shot.

Ain't No Sunshine

Just how long can you leave your crops until they wither away and destroy your investment? Exactly the same amount of time as they take to mature. So a tomato plot (an eight-hour crop) can be left safely for another eight hours after it matures. Once that time's up, the crop will start to wither, but it won't all wither at once: it'll take another half of the maturation period before the whole crop is lost. So if you plant tomatoes at 8 AM, they'll mature at 2 PM, begin to spoil at 10 PM, and be a total loss by 2 AM.

Don't Fence Me In

Actually, being fenced in is (surprisingly) not a bad idea at all. When you plant a plot, harvest a crop, or do just about anything else, you have to wait for your farmer to find his (or her) way across your farm to the right location. If you fence in the square where your farmer starts when you load the game, he'll be stuck -- and your actions will happen immediately, without needing to wait around.

Ain't Gonna Work on Maggie's Farm No More


Want to really get ahead? Get some neighbors. You'll earn cash and experience for doing tasks, you'll get bonuses every time they earn a ribbon, and if you're nice to them, they might even send you gifts. There's really no reason not to buddy up with a few other farmers.

Won't Get Fooled (Again)

Get 40 of your friends to join this group, and you'll get the ZOMG NUCLEAR FUSION NITROTRACTOR! Buy this "book" for $30 and you'll find out all the TOP FARMVILLE CHEATS! Become a fan of this page and you'll get INFINITE MONEY! Uh, no, you won't. You'll waste your money, your time, and the goodwill of your friends -- and the last thing you want is to be That Guy (or Gal) who's constantly hassling their friends to join scammy Farmville groups.

Bric-a-Brac Baby Back

This is a a baby back ribs that my husband ordered when we had our lunch date at Sentro 1850 in Cagayan de Oro City. Should I say late Valentines Date? could be....

This is called bric-a-brac baby back at P 240.00 per order.

Whenever my hubby and I eat on a restaurant/diner we always order two different dishes to be able to try whatever they have to offer and this is what I have ordered "empress chicken" that cost me P195.00.

The foods are delicious as it looks.

Happy Food Trip Friday!

Drink Warm Water after Meal

I read an email today about benefits of warm water. A good article informing us the that drinking warm water after meal will decrease the risk of heart attacks.

Drinking cold water after meal is the most common habits of man except for Chinese and Japanese who likes to drink hot tea with their meals. Though it is indeed very refreshing to have a cold water after meal but cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have consumed and slow down your digestion. Once this solid oily thing reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine and soon will turn into fats that can lead to cancer. To prevent this from happening it is best to drink hot soup or warm water after your meal.

Better act now than feel sorry later.

Cargo Ship

This is a photo of a cargo ship that I have taken while strolling inside the Iligan City Port on February 13, 2010, my entry for today's Ruby Tuesday. I guess I'm late on my post today because we had problems with the internet connection at the office today. So I had my post written at home. Nevertheless, better late than never.

Looking for Tires is very tiring...


Hubby and I with our body guard Nice who always want to tag along when traveling, went to Cagayan de Oro City to look for a 215/50/R17 tire to replace the two rear tires of our Mitsubishi Adventure.

I drove the car from Iligan to Cagayan de Oro City, my first long distance drive and it took me 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach our destination. A good achievement for a month old driver. lol

Hubby took over the wheel at Cagayan de Oro because I'm not familiar with the Cagayan de Oro City streets and restricted roads.

We went from store to store looking for the said tires but to no avail maybe because only few uses it. Since we bought the car at Cebu City maybe we can find the replacement tires there. Our only hope was our friend Erwin to look for it at Cebu City.

Since we're done with the searching, we spent the rest of the day strolling at SM City instead but before doing the SM adventure we took our lunch first at Sentro 1850.

I read about the restaurant in one of the blogs I visited and I asked my hubby to try the place. It was indeed delicious and nicely presented the ambiance is so cool too.

Hubby had a bric a brac baby back rib, I ordered a "empress chicken" and Nice ordered pork steak. (photos will be featured on Food Friday watch out for it)

Among our orders this is my favorite, "Squid Sotong" a crispy tasty small squid rings.

After lunch, we proceeded right away to SM Cagayan de Oro City.

Nice and I went to look for a perfect gift for our friend Mia Fe who's celebrating here birthday too that day. Ooopss sorry taking photos inside the shop is prohibited. Anyway since summer is on his way we bought to two pretty short pants for her.

Continuation of our memoirs will be posted later or probably next week.

Have a Nice Week!

Chocolate Cookie Frappe

This is a chocolate cookie coffee frappe that Nice ordered last night while the gang hanged out at Silvestro Cafe here in Iligan City.

While Nice had a cold choco cookie frappe I ordered chocolate blast for myself.

According to our very good friend Mr. Wikipedia is a foam-covered iced coffee drink made from instant coffee (generally, spray-dried). This drink begun and made popular in Greece and Cyprus especially during summer. Today, this cold refreshing drink was popular all over the world including our beloved country Philippines.

Have a sip and refresh your mind from whole day work.

Love Love Love on February

True love is when you put someone on a pedestal, and they fall - but you are there to catch them.

Love is not blind - it sees more, not less. But because it sees more, it is willing to see less.
~Julins Gordon~

Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
