level 99 Woodcutting in RuneScape

I finally reached 99 Woodcutting in RuneScape after being semi-retired for several years. It was definitely long overdue. Here is a screenshot of me leveling up!

Because I haven't played the game much since 2009 due to real life, this was my first major achievement in ages. The biggest challenges were the limited training spots in F2P and competition with bots. Though level 99 stats aren't such a big deal anymore, I'm proud to say this was 100% legitimate. :-)

Currently playing: RuneScape

a belated Mother's Day celebration

Mother's Day was uneventful. I was busy familiarizing myself with Android Studio because the Fire TV team at Lab126 is migrating from Eclipse. Mom felt my job duties were more important than going out to eat and suggested staying home.

On the other hand, my parents invited the Tangs, Lius and our family friend Lily over for lunch on the 17th. Considering that I didn't get to treat my parents to a Mother's Day meal, I did my best to help Mom prepare the food. She had already done most of the cooking while I was at work and didn't need much help, but it's the thought that counts. :-)

At any rate, you can view my pictures from the gathering here. It was hard to follow the conversation as everyone else was much older than me - like at least twice my age. However, the nice thing is that Eileen gave me a box of Pralibel chocolates. I can't wait to try them as they look damn good. Thanks, Eileen!

Yesterday was relatively uneventful due to the hot weather, although we went for an evening stroll around the neighborhood. I also played a bit of RuneScape in my free time. Speaking of which, I'm really close to 99 woodcutting and should get there in a few days. W00t!
