Simploring 2018 (34) Serendipity Restaurant at Orchard Heights

I was up for a short simploring tour Friday April 6th and this time I picked a place from the SL Desitnation guide again: Serendipity Restaurant. The description caught my attention “Serendipity Restaurant is a lush combination of amazing food and a stunning view. An open-concept structure provides Residents with a lovely dining atmosphere while the ocean breeze gently rolls through the restaurant. This is a luxuriously relaxing dining experience for everyone.
Why did it catch my attention? Because restaurants in Second Life are much rarer than in the physcial world. Well, I assume that’s because pixels have no taste and you can eat them literally. I remember that I searched for a restaurant for taking a picture and it took very long to find a suitable location.

Serendipity Restaurant – overview and impressions

Serendipity Restaurant is a nice place, in the physical world you would recognize it as an expensive and quite superior restaurant. You can sit inside with a lovely view out, but you can also sit outside. It’s the perfect place for a wedding and I’m pretty sure that some SL weddings have taken place there.
Beside the lovely views everything is set up nicely and the tables are set and decorated. The only thing I missed was a kitchen! *winks*.

Impressions of Serendipity Restaurant at Orchard Heights

Besides visiting the Serendipity Restaurant I learned about something else – Orchard Heights. The restaurant is part of community of 17 connected sims where you can live, roleplay and attend other activities. Orchard Heights is owned and operated by Aiden Tigra (aidentigra) and Aurora Tigra (auroradarklove). There’s an own website with more information about events, avaible homes and living at Orchard heights. I got a friendly hello when I arrived and I got a notecard, an orientation HUD and the web address for Orchard heights. It seems quite professionally managed.
And the restaurant seems to be one of the amenities you get when you’re living there – but you can book the place as well as a non resident, as far as I understood.

Simploring 2018 (33) – Shades of Emotion

Monday, April 2nd, I got a personal message from Jinty Darkwatch. She told me that HeAdLiGhTs, a place that I reported about back in 2016 (read here) is closed. As HeAdLiGhTs was European and had regular music events, Jinty brought to my attention, that she opened a place named “Shades of Emotion“, which is also European with live music and live singers and that offers also areas for roleplay and other fun.

On Thursday afternoon, April 5th, Jenny and I went over to Shades of Emotion to explore it. It is on a sky platform and the landmark leads you directly to the dancefloor. The club area is huge, there’s not just the large dance floor and quite some boards. There’re also places to sit and for dice and cards games nearby. Jinty herself was present as well as Lady Harcassle, who welcomed us. Lady Harcassle owns the sim, Jinty Darkwatch owns Shades of Emotion.

Shades of Emotion – overview

Jenny and I went exploring the sim on our own first, later Lady Harcassle gave us a short tour. Shades of Emotion is open to the public but still developing and some areas are not fully finished yet. Besides the large event area, that dominates the place, there are a lot of nice places to sit, to meet and to chat in the park surrounding the club. At one side is a long row of stores, that is not yet rented out.
Very impressive is a meeting area outside next to artificial water falls and fountains.

Adjacent to the event area is the club house. The ground floor of it is not yet finished, but the basement is already built and furnished. There’s all you’d expect in an adult sim, there’s a room for medical play and water sports, a rubber room, a room with cells (not yet finished), and a large clubroom, that Jinty called the “pampering room”.
At the end of our short tour Lady Harcassle invited us to join the Shades of Emotion group and I’ll share the group description “BDSM explore areas, great hang club called Shades of Emotion, to relax, r/p, explore or just watch the show and listen to good music, live DJ and life music each day. Wonderful world of pony play, Lilac Mountain Ranch – come have fun

Impressions of the club house at Shades of Emotion, lower right shows one of the many places to sit in the park surrounding the event area and the club house

Any place in Second Life lives from the people who use and visit it. Shades of Emotion has all it needs to become such a place. You should give it a try and visit, as Lady Harcassle expressed it “Come have fun”.
I myself hope to find the time to have a look at it again.

Diary 2018 (59) April 3rd/4th – Flo Drone unwrapped

When Jenny and I explored the Secret Society Homelond secretly (read yesterday’s post here) Jenny had fun trying out a bondage beam – and I had fun to take the araised opportunity for teasing her. The bondage beam was from a store named Stockholm&Lima, where we bought already some of our bondage furniture and gear. We went there Monday, April 2nd and looked for the beam, but we didn’t get one. Instead Jenny found another piece of furniture, which attracted her a lot.

April 3rd – our new park bench with pergola at Mount Everst

When we met Tuesday afternoon, April 3rd, Jenny and I went back to Stockholm&Lima and we purchased the item , that Jenny desired – the “Park Bench (Triskelion)”. Back home we placed one with a surrounding pergola between the Landing point and the games area, one along the way from the games area to the patio and one at our skybox. The bench has some great animations for men and women but also for lasbian couples. It also contains some props so that you can bind your partner on the bench. I’m pretty sure that Jenny and I will have fun with the bench.

April 3rd: Jenny and Diomita on a secret Mission *winks*

Our Tuesday night was a surprise. We didn’t try out the new bench, instead we left the two drones, Flo Drone and Drone Flo, at home and let them try it out. Drone Flo got the keys for Flo Drone so that they had some freedom, well at least Drone Flo had some freedom *winks*.
Jenny and I went on a secret mission to evaluate a possible vacation within Second Life, a vacation where we both would submit to someone else for a limited time or for just a session – just for us to enjoy and to broaden our knowledge. Of course the person we’re looking for should have even more fun. Our secret mission on Tuesday was a first step. We will see if anything develops from it. We had a first teaser … and we enjoyed a very particular fucking machine.

April 4th – Flo Drone unwrapped

Wednesday afternoon, April 4th, we had a surprise for Flo Drone, who was present and cleaning the house. Her drone suit was already leaking and Jenny took out a knife and scissors and cut it off. For the next drone suit we need to get a better quality, that doesn’t break after just a few months. It was strange for her and for us seeing our slave Flo again. She also had to change back her display name to “Maurer’s slave Flo”.
Welcome back, slave Flo.

April 4th: Mrs. and Mrs. Maurer with slave Flo at The Secret House and at club DeLust

We had a relaxed night. I played a round of skipee with slave Flo first. Later Jenny and I took slave Flo to The Secret House later. She did enjoy being back into her skin. After slave Flo went to bed, we ended our night at club DeLust.

Diary 2018 (58) April 1st/2nd Secret Society

Sunday, April 1st, Easter 2018, was quite eventful in Second Life for me. First I visited Mario’s Easter Light Show with Angelique (see yesterday’s post here) and then I went kinkploring with Angelique and Flo Drone. Jenny wasn’t around at night due to her RL. I had found the place that we visited by reading profiles – Secret Society Embassy:
We do not look down on blacks, jews, asians, latins or even weak whites. Here you are all equally inferior. And my orders are to weed out all cheaters who are not devoted to serve in our beloved Corps.”

The Secret Society Embassy is housed in a Second Life premium member home and owned by Anastasia (manastasiap). It is just the same type of house that I own and that we call our loft. But you can also make something really kinky of such a house. All inside walls were covered with black latex curtains and on the 1st floor are also some toys and gear, clearly related to rubber fetishists.
On the 2nd floor we found boards of the members of the Secret Society and a teleport ring leading to the Secret Society Homeland, that was restricted to members only. But we succeeded finding the landmark to the Secret Society Homeland – and we went there.

The Secret Society Homeland is housed on a large platform in the sky, with two main buildings that are surrounded by trails, exercise courts and stables for pony play. Access was not restricted, so we went into the 2 buildings. Both are full of club rooms, dungeons and playrooms. And all rooms are decorated very stylish and you can literally smell the rubber and leather.
Angelique, Flo Drone and I had lots of fun exploring the Secret Society Homeland. We also tried out some of the equipment. I haven’t seen a place that full with stylish and thoughtfully selected kinky gear in a while. There was just one room that was not accessible – the toilet! Angelique couldn’t believe it! Luckily she didn’t need to pee.

After our kinkploring tour we went home to wind down, the visit was really exciting, and we played a round of Skipee before we all went to bed. I had a full Easter Sunday.

Monday, April 2nd, I met with Jenny in the afternoon and told her about our kinkploring tour of the night before. Of course she was curious and I took her to the Secret Society Embassy and to the Homeland. We spend some time there and I had fun teasing my wife and property while she was trying out some of the equipment there.

April 2nd: Jenny and Diomita at the Secret Society Homeland

Jenny was prevented from coming online Monday night again.
I contacted Anastasia (manastasiap) and confessed that we spied out her place. She was very kind and invited me over to the homeland where I met her and her partner Galatea (mistress.aura). We had a very nice chat. Anastasia owns the Secret Society group and the homeland. She allowed that I publish the pictures, that I took but the landmark to the Secret Society Homeland stays secret and I won’t tell. Thank you Anastasia and Galatea.

Later at night I was alone with Flo Drone and we played 2 rounds of Skipee before we went to The Secret House. Drone Flo (AnneWanne) joined us there and Argi entertained everybody. And that’s it again for this diary entry.

Diary 2018 (57) April 1st – Mario’s Easter Light Show

I had an invitation to for Sunday, April 1st, Easter 2018, to visit Mario2 Helstein’s Easter Light show. Angelique accompanied me to the event, which was once again at the Theatre On The Hill. Mario presented an amazing show again. The light effects are breathtaking, the music is selected thoughtfully. There were quite some elements that I saw in previous light shows of Mario, but it looks different from every angle, and different if you zoom in and out – and even more important, you I can’t get enough watching it. Following the show was a real Easter event for me.

Of course I took dozends of pictures again, much more than I can show here. I got the link to a videotaping of the whole light show from Mario a couple of hours after the show. The video was recorded by Peet Auer. There you can get an idea how amazing the light show looks like seeing it live.

And the next day I got the linkto another video showing some parts of the Easter Light show at the Theater In the Hill. This video was taken by Suzie Anderton of InWorld Films.

Thank you for the great show, Mario!

Diary 2018 (56) March 30th – April 1st Easter 2018

Our Easter holiday weekend 2018 started with our reugular Friday night party. The theme was “Bunnies and eggs”. Jenny and I both bought new bunny outfits and I coloured both slave drones (Flo Drone aka. Flo 1st and Drone Flo aka. Flo 2nd or AnneWanne) in a nice bright yellow.
When I came to the dance floor Flo Drone had laid an egg in the middle of the dance floor. Some costumes were really eggsquiste. Jopy Weber and illa Quan both had full bunny costumes for example. Again we had a great start into the weekend.

Saturday, March 31st, I did some simploring and discovered “Mastering the Zen” (read yesterday’s post here). I had an exciting afternoon *winks*. Our night was quite relaxed. Jenny, Angelique, slave Flo Drone and I spent some time at The Secret House, then we moved on to club DeLust. And before we all went to bed Jenny, Angelique and I had a game of Skipee.

I also took a really funy picture of our niece Angelique that evening. Wearing her bunny costume she hid in the flowers by the game tables and is really hard to see amoung all the flowers. Did she hid eggs there?

March 31st: Bunny Angelique hiding eggs at home – or did she just hide herself?

Sunday, April 1st, Easter Sunday, I met with Jenny in the afternoon. We took Drone Flo (yes, that’s slave drone Flo 2nd or AnneWanne) on an Easter egg hunt at Nice but Naughty. They sell eroctic furniture and we do have some of them. The easter egg hunt was fun. We had to collect 12 eggs that were hidden around the store. In the end we got a rug in exchange for the 12 eggs.
The rug is nice and Jenny and I tried it out quickly at home. Drone Flo made two pictures of us. Well her vision is a bit restricted *winks*

Simploring 2018 (32) – Mastering the Zen

For my simploring tour Saturday, March 31st, I picked “Mastering the Zen” from scoop.it SL Destinations. This sim was presented from Isabella Coletti (Belladochas Minoptra) in her blog “The Second Life Tourist“, here’s the link to her blogpost.
I added the link to her blog under “Active blogs” on the side bar of this blog.

Mastering the Zen is an adult skybox and described as “a quiet, calm and tranquil place to escape to, and possibly from depending…”. It is an adult place. And yes it is peaceful in several ways. First of all it is a beautiful garden around 2 Japanese houses, a pond and a big tower. Everything is layed out perfectly like I saw it in other Japanese gardens I visited in Second Life or saw on pictures. I myself was never in Japan and I have no knowledge of Japanese culture. But it is for sure an eye candy.

Mastering the Zen – overview

I first went to the tower. On the ground level is a bondage cage and a hanging cage, we do own these both ourselves. I searched for a way to see the other levels of the tower but there’re no stairs nor a teleport. And I also found out that the other levels are empty. Just on the top level I found a Shibari table and naughty me tried it. What began as a simploring tour became a little “Enjoying bondage” scene. I tried out all poses and took dozends of pictures at the top level of the tower.

Back on the ground level I explored the park a bit more in detail and in fact there’re more Shibari racks .. and again I couldn’t hold back and tried them. For sure a place to take Jenny to on the occasion of my next green light.

Mastering the Zen – the Shibari garden

Between the two houses on the left and the right side is a pond with a bridge and a Shibari cage at each side. The houses contain each a another pond with some flowers and one room, that is used as a bedroom in one house and as a living room in the other house.
Last but not least I should mention the drake, that is right next to the tower, a great piece of art.

Mastering the Zen is group owned, the group was founded by Lilydeelala Haiku. I assume that she’s the owner of Mastering the Zen. From her profile I learned that the owns a store named “See You Next Tuesday” and I thought I could visit that store in the same sim. But I found no way to the ground level nor to the store. The landmark to the store that I took from Lilydeelala Haiku profile just led me back to Mastering the Zen.

Mastering the Zen is a place for taking pictures in a Japanese environment – and for those who love Shibari. It is indeed very peaceful to hang safely held in ropes and it has something very erotic for me. Thank you Lilydeelala Haiku for my Saturday afternoon Shibari hour at your sim!
