Simploring 2018 (62) Formosa Cafe

For my simploring tour on Wednesday, July 18th, I picked “Formosa Cafe” from scoop.it SL Destinations. The Formosa Cafe is a restaurant and bar founded in 1925 and located at 7156 Santa Monica Boulevard at the intersection with North Formosa Avenue, in West Hollywood, California (source wikipedia).
When I followed the provided link to read a little bit about it, I came across Second Life Newers, a blog that exists as long as our blog does, written by several authors. It is about the people, places, things, and events across Second Life and has an extra section about places. Hard to belive that I never came across it before. I added the link to Second Life Newers to the “Other links” section on the right side bar.

The Formosa Cafe in Real Life and in Second Life

In the Second Life Newers blog is a very detailed desripction about Formosa Cafe along with information about it’s creator Gardenia Malheur titled “The Formosa“, written by Klaus Bereznyak. As this post is so detailled and complete, it is hard to add anything – and I won’t.
In his post Klaus Bereznyak also provided a link to another blog post about Formosa Cafe, which was published by riverpearl in her blog “Million Happy Endings” titeled “The Formosa Cafe“. I just had a short look into riverpearl’s blog but its amoung other things also about places in Second Life. I added Million Happy Endings as well to the “Other links” section on the right side bar (Remark: I couldn’t find riverpearl or Pearl Grey in Second Life, hence I assume her username must be different).

Impressions of my visit to Formosa Cafe in Second Life

Of course I also visited the Formosa Cafe and I was not disappointed at all. It is a great cafe and you can sense the atmosphere. It is buildt with love and passion by Gardenia Malheur and as I build myself a little bit in Second Life, I know what it means to get it done in such a perfection, in particular if you want to build something that exists in Real Life.
Comparing the picture from wikipedia with the Formosa Cafe in Second Life, I’m impressed! There’s so much to see and discover in Second Life, that I’d need to get a 3rd and 4th life!

Thank you Gardenia for creating Formosa Cafe and for sharing it with the public. Many thanks also to Klaus Bereznyak and to riverpearl for the great blog posts about it. I enjoyed my short simploring tour.

Update: Today Annie Oh (anniebrightstar), who manages scoop.it SL Destinations, send me a private message: “The Editor of SL Newser is Bixyl Shuftan, Klaus is Klaus (klaus.bereznyak) and Pearl Grey is Pearl Grey (pearlgrey) (in Second Life), all interesting people“. Thank you, Annie. I had only found Klaus.
