330 - Serenading a boy and his butterfly

Where's Dim Sum? #330 - Serenading a boy and his butterfly


Dim Sum quietly crouches closer towards the window, ready to pounce on the butterfly, while everyone is distracted by the musicians.


This is my favorite of the series. There are actually five musicians, but one of them was covered by the tree shadow.

Here's a bonus picture that shows all five musicians. I took this one last night, then SL crashed immediately after. I was exhausted anyway, so I decided to just go to bed.

329 - Holding hands in the terrace

Where's Dim Sum? #329 - Holding hands in the terrace


Dim Sum relaxes in the sun as the couple holds hands on their third floor balcony while listening to the music.


Each flat in the building seems to have its own story. This couple is one of those stories.

328 - Red fruit

Where's Dim Sum? #328 - Red fruit


Dim Sum curiously peers through the window and into the room.


There is only one building that looks like a multi-family home. Beautifully textured. The characters are oversized, even bigger than normal SL avatars.

327 - Cello against the sky

Where's Dim Sum? #327 - Cello against the sky


Dim Sum wonders how long the stone cello has been there. Could there have been a volcanic eruption in the past that petrified the instrument?


It's like walking into a children's storybook. The characters, the furniture, and the instruments are in the same unique style.

326 - Sniffing around the crab traps

Where's Dim Sum? #326 - Sniffing around the crab traps


Dim Sum sniffs at the smelly crab traps, but she's glad they're empty.


At least I think they're crab traps. The real-life crab traps I know are baskets.

I realized that the waterfront is really just a small part of the sim; there's a whole lot more to explore. So, the next series would probably still be in this sim.

325 - Cozy lighthouse bed

Where's Dim Sum? #325 - Cozy lighthouse bed


Dim Sum snuggles on the cozy bed and hopes the owner doesn't come back soon. Not that anyone could make her move from her warm spot.


This is a very small room in the lighthouse and I had to really squeeze the view angle. I would love sleeping in such a bedroom with a great view out the window like that, even if it's really small.

As in #323, this one hints at another unseen window because of its shadow.

324 - Ice dreams under the stars

Where's Dim Sum? #324 - Ice dreams under the stars


Dim Sum watches the stars twinkling in the sky on her perfect perch.


I love the blueness of this sky. I modified the light with a tinge of orange/tan though. The surrealism of the light felt really oddly quiet and peaceful, so I used it for the whole series.

The ornate twirly decorative elements added cuteness to this sim. And it's a nice juxtaposition to the solemness of the windlight.
