 I can't say or express enough how we Filipinos are grateful enough for all the help and contributions you made in the rehabilitation efforts on the Typhoon Yolanda aftermath and as we said before we are forever indebted to all your good deeds to us. May you inspire us Filipinos to do our own share of even a simple kindness or good deeds to others as our way of give back and saying thank you and may you continue to help a lot more others. A special thanks to Miss Universe owner Donald Trump, Miss Universe Org. President Ms. Paula Shugart, and Miss Universe 2013 Gabriela Isler of Venezuela who came to the Philippines to foresee the progress of the project and to celebrate with the Filipinos the gift of resiliency seeing sincere smiles and laughter in our faces.

God Bless You All!

Playing The Sims 4: Introduction

I have been playing The Sims since decade ago and the rest they say is history. I have been playing The Sims, The Sims 2 and 3, The Sims Medieval and now The Sims 4. It is entertaining, fun as it is addictive controlling the lives of your characters and how you want to run their lives all throughout their Sims life stages. More importantly, the things that are happening in the game also happen sometimes in real life or the opposite it making it more exciting to play the game. 

The Sims 4 brings new twist to the games' series as it brings out new game play features like emotions, facial expressions that influence how they behave and act, graphic interface etc. Just like in the previous series of The Sims, I will post screenshots of my games with captions and descriptions about it. I hope you enjoy it.

For the meantime, since The Sims 3 I have been using cheat codes to enhance further my gameplay. For the Sims 4, here are my favorite cheat codes I have been using.

freerealestate on/off  or true

I will post the screenshots of my gameplay of The Sims 4 as well as its gamepack Outdoor Retreat and expansion pack Get To Work
