[aka Wasabi News #1. We are going to try a different, weekly format for updates on my ACNL town Wasabi. This should leave more room for other non-AC posts.]
Week of 1/27 – 2/2
Wasabi Inaugurates Newly Constructed Lighthouse
Thanks to the hard work of the citizens of Wasabi, and the generous donations of the town’s Mayor Neko, Wasabi has the fortune to inaugurate a new Lighthouse! Construction began on 1/24/13 and the estimated cost of construction was over ฿370,000. Many of the residents of Wasabi gathered at the site of the new Lighthouse to celebrate the inauguration on 1/30/13. Fundraising and construction took only 6 days.
QR Scanning Now Available at Able Sisters
The Able Sisters, Mabel and Sable, are proud to announce that as of 1/27/13, they will now be servicing clients who wish to scan QR codes to create clothing patterns. Many official Nintendo patterns can be scanned from QR codes that are found on this website. Popular right now are the K.K. Slider PRO t-shirt design, and the Princess Peach dress.
Welcome New Resident!
The population of Wasabi has been consistently growing, ever since Mayor Neko took over at Town Hall. The newest resident of Wasabi is a small Monkey named デリ (Derry). We are proud to announce that Derry was originally a resident of the neighboring village Kasen, but opted to move to Wasabi in hopes of finding larger fish to catch. Good luck on that quest, Derry!
Mayor Neko has reported seeing various balloons floating overhead ever since she moved to Wasabi. She has been diligently been shooting them down and collecting the prizes that these balloons hold. Mayor Neko has almost completed the Balloon Series, and on 1/29/13 had the luck to find three golden balloons floating overhead. After shooting this down, she became the first resident of Wasabi to obtain the 3-Way Shot slingshot! Congratulations Mayor!
Club 444 is NOW OPEN!
Due to the overwhelming demand of the residents of Wasabi, the world famous DJ K.K. Slider has opened up Club 444 in the Wasabi Strip Mall! Mayor Neko had the residents of Wasabi sign a petition to bring DJ K.K. to Wasabi, and he simply could not refuse the requests of his fans. Club 444 officially opened on 1/30/13. DJ K.K. will be spinning house music nightly after 8PM – with the exception of Saturday nights, during which K.K. Slider will be performing an acoustic set. At the acoustic set, K.K. Slider will entertain song requests by fans as well. In the afternoons before K.K.’s show starts, Dr. Shrunk can be found in Club 444 performing his “acting” to anyone who will listen.
SAFETY ADVISORY – CONSTRUCTION IN THE STRIP MALL
For all of those who venture to the Wasabi Strip Mall regularly, please use caution when walking on the east side. A massive construction project began on 1/31/13 at the Able Sisters Shop. Rumors suggest that the construction is to build a new salon above the clothing store. While there is much excitement surrounding this, please use caution when walking by, as there is a lot of banging and drilling going on. Mayor Neko has requested that all visitors please watch their step and look overhead for falling objects.
Public Works: New Bench
In addition to the new Lighthouse of Wasabi, Mayor Neko has also generously funded a quaint bench that can be found on the north east side of Wasabi. It is yet another Public Work that Mayor Neko has created to bring more life to Wasabi. The bench construction was completed on 2/1/13 and another Public Works project is in the planning stages. Please see the Gyroid fundraiser located in the Wasabi Train Station for more details or to contribute.
New DLC at the Post Office
Pelly the Pelican, who works the day shift in the Wasabi Post Office, would like to remind everyone that there is new February DLC available for download. The new DLC creates an Aurora Borealis – INDOORS! Please visit the Post Office from 2/1 – 2/28 to receive this exclusive new item! Mayor Neko, of course, snatched hers up as soon as she could and added it to her Ice Room. She was quoted saying, “This new item is both beautiful and useful – it could serve well as a security device to block a doorway, while still giving visitors a peek inside the secured room.”
After a recent visit from Crazy Redd, a new addition has been donated to the Wasabi Museum by Mayor Neko. The very first painting has finally been hung on the walls of the Museum! The painting has been inspected by Blathers and deemed 100% authentic. After Mayor Neko donated this first artwork, she told the Wasabi News, “I think that Blathers wants to upgrade the Wasabi Museum. He seemed very pensive after I donated the painting. I think now that each section of the Museum has at least one exhibit, Blathers will want to add a second floor. Only time will tell!”
Stalk Market Report
Asking Price for Turnips on 1/27/13: ฿106
Week’s Analysis: It appeared that this was a Bear Market Week, with prices dipping as low as ฿47 per turnip. The highest recorded price of the week was ฿140, which was posted after Mayor Neko had already sold her 200 turnips in Kasen on 2/1/13, and took a small loss for the week. Hopefully Joan will have a more favorable asking price on Sunday, 2/3/13.
