Week of 5/12 – 5/18

Mayor Neko Flounders in Fishing Tourney!

Saturday, 5/18 was the date of the Fishing Tournament in Wasabi.  Mayor Neko and all the villagers were out with their fishing rods on this beautiful sunny day, eager to catch the biggest fish!  Chip, the Tournament Host, was asking to see the biggest Carp that the contestants could find.  It wasn’t very easy to find Carp on this day, there seemed to be plenty of OTHER river fish swimming about.  But Mayor Neko tried her best, and actually caught quite a few Carp to enter in the Tournament.  She donated her biggest fish last, so that she might earn some furniture from the exclusive Fish Series!  She was given a fish wallpaper and some kind of jellyfish lamp for her efforts.

After Mayor Neko submitted her biggest Carp, which was 68.3 cm at 2PM, she figured she’d be in first place for the rest of the day.  Who could top that?  It was time to get off of ACNL and go to the CROSSFIRE II event with StreetPass Long Island, so the Tournament was left alone.  After 6PM, Mayor Neko returned to Wasabi to find out the Tournament results.  She was in for a shocking outcome…

Apparently, during the afternoon, the rest of the townies had edged out Mayor Neko from the competition!  Ri-Rii took the first place spot, with Kitt and Wendy in 2nd and 3rd respectively.  Mayor Neko was shocked and full of regret for not being a more diligent competitor!  She vows that next time, she will not make the same mistake again.

PUBLIC WORKS UPDATE

At long last, the Manhole Cover Public Works project has finally completed it’s funding on 5/12.  Rather than the normal celebration at the site of the Public Work with Shizue, Mayor Neko instead was greeted by Resetti when the Manhole Cover was constructed.  Turns out that this Public Works project is more than just an Manhole Cover!  It’s the secret doorway to a hidden area called the Resetti Surveillance Center.  Resetti warned Mayor Neko NOT to go down into hole, should she ever see the Manhole Cover open.  We’ll see if Mayor Neko listens to Resetti’s demand!

STALK MARKET SOARS IN KASEN

Good news was spread on 5/16 when word from Mayor Yumi of Kasen Village reached Mayor Neko’s ears.  Apparently there was a huge surge in the price per turnip in the Kasen Stalk Market!  Each turnip was selling for over ฿460/turnip.  Mayor Neko didn’t have TOO many turnips to sell, but she grabbed them all and rushed over to Kasen’s Recycling Shop to take advantage of the great prices!  She hauled in over ฿186K.  Great work, Mayor Neko and Mayor Yumi!
