How to earn more coins in Pet Society - legally ;)

It's been a while since I last played Pet Society but last week, due to work burn out, I decided to revisit the game.

There have been a lot of changes since I last logged in: new items, the garden, new map layout, fishing. Anyway, I also found out that you can get more coins by visiting friends. From what I found out, you get 50 coins each visit for the first 50 friends, 30 coins for the next 30 visits, and 15 coins for succeeding visits. Having a lot of friends is good. I am lucky I have a lot of friends who used to play this game so they are still in my neighbors list. I get about 4000 coins per day from visiting friends.

I'm having a lot of fun decorating my pet's house and it always frustrates me when I run out of money and have to stop playing for the day. Then today, I discovered another technique to earn more money: cleaning your friends' dirty pets :)

When you visit your friends' pets, note which are the dirtiest (the ones with the most flies flying around them... maximum is 5 I think). When you clean them, you get 20 coins per fly removed, and you can earn a maximum of 80 coins per dirty pet cleaned. And then... here's the good part... log off the game, then log in again. Visit those pets again, they would be dirty again and you can clean them again to earn coins :) You can also visit the cafe to look for dirty pets hanging out there and clean them as well to earn coins.

Twitter can not handle volume?

I was trying to log in... just log in, not even post a tweet, and got this message on my screen:

I guess with some people tweeting every single thing they do, this was bound to happen.

American Idol Season 9 is passing me by...

And it's Andrea's fault.

I have been an avid fan of American Idol since Jason Castro. And last season, I watched every episode religiously, rooting for Scott McIntyre all the way.

This season started well. I went home early to watch the first episode, and... that was it. I didn't get to watch another episode again. When I get home, I have to take care of Andrea to give our yaya time to prepare dinner. And then dinner, and then Andrea again. I am usually too tired to watch TV. Imagine that, huh?

How do you travel with a baby?

This is a question, not a "tips" kind of post.

We are scheduled to take Andrea on her first out of town trip this April (sa Subic lang naman). She would be around 6 months and coming up with the list of things we need to bring for her stresses me out already.

Here's my current list:
  • Clothes & Diapers - won't take up much space because well... her clothes are small;
  • Bottles;
  • Sterilizer - for her bottles, since we're staying there for 3 days;
  • Car seat/carrier - she's used to being in the car seat every time she rides the car and I prefer it that way;
  • Stroller - Not sure about this, but I keep thinking that she may need a safe space to lie down and take a nap when we're out;
  • Baby bouncer - a must... everywhere she goes where we know she will be staying for a while, this must be with her;
  • Crib/Playpen - I am not sure about sleeping arrangements. I am thinking we can do without this, but if it would still fit in the car, I want to take this since her Playpen is the type that folds and fits into a bag (a rather big and heavy bag... but still, portable);
  • Her pillows;
  • Walker - we don't have one yet but she would be using one around that time already;
  • Bath items;
  • Distilled water - to be sure, just in case for some freak reason I won't have access to distilled water in the place we're going;
  • Milk;
  • Baby food - she's not eating yet, but she would be around that time;
  • Blender/Juicer - I will need something to prepare her fruits and juice in since she can't take the ones that you buy off the grocery shelf.
