Week of 4/28 – 5/4

Fossil Exhibit at Wasabi Museum: COMPLETED!

There was a lot of excitement at the Wasabi Museum last week.  Specifically in the Fossil Exhibit – Blathers was elated to announce that Mayor Neko has donated every single known fossil available to the Museum!  For a long time the Museum was only missing the Dino Egg, but on 4/28, Mayor Neko submitted the final fossil!  The Wasabi News is proud to inform all visitors that full fossils of dinosaurs, from T-Rex to Wooly Mammoth, are now on display at the Fossil Exhibit.  The Wasabi Museum is open to the public 24/7, though Blathers has indicated that he prefers visitors come after 6pm… so that he’ll be awake for their visit, of course, since he is a nocturnal bird.

In addition to the Fossil Exhibit being completed, the Wasabi Museum is also inching closer to filling out the other sections as well.  With the new month of May comes new bugs and fish, which Mayor Neko has been trying to collect and donate as well.  Recently a Pond Skimmer was donated to the Bug Exhibit, and we look forward to many more bugs being donated as the temperature heats up!  Also, a new painting was donated to the Art Exhibit, courtesy of Mayor Neko!

WASABI WELCOMES…

Mayor Neko was doing her rounds in the evening on 5/2, when she spotted something… different.  She was walking past Doraemon’s house when she stumbled into… another house.  A NEW house!  This could only mean one thing.  A new resident had moved into Wasabi!  Curiosity was killing the Mayor Cat, so she decided to barge in and introduce herself.  Inside she found a new rabbit!  This new rabbit was nothing like Tiffany, who recently moved out.  This rabbit has pimples freckles, red hair and wears a plaid shirt.  Mayor Neko didn’t quite catch the name, but after doing some research it was determined that this rabbit’s English name is Gabi.  The gender of this rabbit has not yet been confirmed.  Doraemon made this statement regarding the new resident: “While I welcome new neighbors as much as the next guy, I do plan to have a discussion with Shizue and Mayor Neko about zoning laws.  Surely there must be a rule that a new house cannot be built directly in front of another!”

PUBLIC WORKS UPDATE

At long last, the latest Public Works project, a traditional-style Windmill, has been completed!  On 5/3, Mayor Neko and the townies all met up by the Beach Slope to inaugurate the newest structure in town!  The Windmill looks really beautiful with the spring flowers and trees in full bloom.  Wasabi News analysts suggest that Mayor Neko is considering changing the flowers around the Windmill to be tulips instead of daisies.  Tulips and Windmills just go together so well!

Don’t the Lighthouse and Windmill look so good together?  Mayor Neko is very pleased with the outcome and placement of these two status symbols for Wasabi.  Next, it was time to pick a new Public Works project.  Some new suggestions had been filed at the Town Hall.  Take a look at some of the proposed projects:

Solar Panels! Maybe this would look nice next to the Wind Turbine?

A Stable? Or something??  Anthony probably requested this one…

A Balloon Arch! How cute!

Ultimately, Mayor Neko opted to go with the Manhole Cover.  While its a pricey project, and 99% of the time it does nothing, occasionally that Manhole Cover will be open in the evenings, leading down to… a mysterious place!  Wait and see when and if Mayor Neko is able to head underground for more exploring!

TRAVELING MAYOR

While there’s plenty to do around town in Wasabi, Mayor Neko likes to go traveling when she can, to meet up with her Mayor friends and see how other towns are set up and decorated.  It had been a while since going traveling, so this week Mayor Neko visited with some of her best friends in their towns: Kasen and Orantoiro!

After hearing of a decent Stalk Market price, Mayor Neko was perusing the Recycling Shop in Kasen Village. She picked up the Tuk Tuk that Mayor Yumi had put on display from Thailand.

Enjoying the lovely gardens and blue skies of Kasen Village. Nice shades, Mayor Yumi!

Notice anything new about Orantoiro? Mayor Sakura has implemented some new Fairy Tale style decor around town. So far there is a Fairy Tale Gate, Clock and Lamp Post! Aren’t they cute?

Goofing around on a bench in Orantoiro!

  1. Congrats on the fossil completion! I also like your new painting. I’ve never seen that one before.

    I also like your new public works projects. The one that looks like a stable is actually a bus stop shelter.

    As a fellow mayor, I too believe we need power to enact zoning laws. Yasao cut down one of Lillian’s delicious peach trees when he put his house *right* next to hers. It’s just not right!
