Week of 2/10 – 2/16

Festivale Comes to Wasabi!

This week in Wasabi started off with a BANG!  The holiday known as Festivale was in full swing on Sunday, 2/3 and it was a big hit with the villagers!  Everyone was dressed up in their best samba outfits, including Mayor Neko!  She worked hard all day to collect almost every single item in the Pavé Series.  (Editor’s Note:  Mayor Neko has requested that if anyone has a spare Pavé Bed, please send a message to the Wasabi Town Hall.  That is the only furniture item that she has not acquired.)  All of the town enjoyed putting aside their daily chores in favor of collecting feathers and dancing the day away!  For more detailed coverage of the Festivale Holiday, please read the Wasabi News: Festivale Edition! Special issue that was released on 2/12.

During the morning of Festivale, Mayor Neko was surprised to see a young student named Maikochan wandering around Wasabi.  At first Mayor Neko thought maybe the small yellow cat was her intern for the day, and let Maikochan follow her around town.  Luckily, Mayor Neko was able to contact Mayor Mikuro of Orantoiro Village, who opened his town gates so that Maikochan could visit his town.  Unfortunately, as Mayor Neko and Maikochan were boarding the train, the little kitty dropped her train pass.  She ran out to pick it up but the train departed without her.  Mayor Neko felt very sorry for Maikochan afterwards.  However, on Monday, Mayor Neko received a letter from Maikochan, which assured the Mayor that she’d found her own way to the next town.  Attached with the letter was a limited edition pink camera, which Mayor Neko is proudly displaying in her home.


After the excitement of Festivale had died down, it was back to business in Wasabi.  Mayor Neko made a great effort to complete another Public Works upgrade for the town.  The most recent change made to Wasabi was the expansion of the Wasabi Museum on 2/12.  Thanks to the diligent work of Mayor Neko donating thousands of dollars worth of fossils, fish, insects and works of art, the Museum Curator Blathers authorized a second floor expansion of the Museum, and invited his younger sister Celeste to join him.  Celeste is now running the Gift Shop of the Wasabi Museum, selling rare tools, carpets, wallpapers and more!  Visit the newly expanded Wasabi Museum today!

In addition to the Gift Shop, Mayor Neko funded the expansion of the upstairs of the Wasabi Museum.  Mayor Neko was given access to four new display rooms to show off more limited edition and exclusive items to the visitors of the Museum.  She is not giving away much information at this time, as these rooms are “works in progress” but the Wasabi News was able to get one exclusive photo of one of Mayor Neko’s display rooms while she was setting it up.


Thanks to a stroke of luck, the black market art dealer Crazy Redd was in Wasabi Village on 2/13.  He had four different paintings for sale.  Since Mayor Neko is still not up to snuff when it comes to art history, she recruited the help of Mayor Yumi from Kasen Village to help her determine which painting was real and which ones were fake.  The two Mayors inspected all the artwork very carefully, and the legitimate artwork was decided upon and purchased.  The following day, the painting was shipped to Mayor Neko, and she immediately donated it to the Wasabi Museum.  The Museum is quickly filling up, attracting visitors from all around!


On 2/14, Wasabi Village celebrated their first Valentine’s Day.  While this holiday isn’t quite the same “take-over-the-town production” as Festivale, it is still very sentimental to a lot of people.  Sadly for Mayor Neko, she didn’t realize that Valentine’s Day is very private in Wasabi – town villagers will not walk up to you and ask you to be their Valentine.  Nor does your Valentine wait outside your house to deliver chocolates to you, as King Squirt had once described to Mayor Neko in his town of Shaolin.  Mayor Neko wandered the town all day, wondering if anyone loved her enough to be her Valentine.  Since she and King are such great friends, Mayor Neko had hoped to receive a Valentine from him, but she couldn’t find him all day.

It wasn’t until Mayor Neko checked her mailbox that she discovered not one but TWO Valentine letters waiting for her.  The first was a chocolate cake from Shizue, and the second was a letter from none other than the King, and he had attached a pink rose for her.  Mayor Neko was elated when she realized that she did have admirers, they are just a bit more private about it!

Chocolate Cake!


It was shaping up to be another dreadful week in the Stalk Market.  Prices were hovering in the ฿80/turnip range for most of the week.  But on 2/15, Mayor Neko checked the morning turnip prices and was shocked!  The turnip price for the morning had sky-rocketed to ฿457/turnip!  Thanks to the low buying price of ฿94/turnip that was paid on Sunday, Mayor Neko was able to make over ฿300K in profits for the week!  Mayor Neko took to Twitter to announce the extremely high selling price, and Mayor Yumi rushed over to sell her turnips before the price changed to the afternoon price, which was considerably lower.

With a huge chunk of cash in her pockets, Mayor Neko was able to pay off her current house loan, which will allow her to now add a back room to her house.  In addition, the Mayor was also generous enough to donate the funds needed to complete the latest Wasabi Public Work – a Police Station!


The residents of Wasabi can now sleep soundly, knowing that their town is being guarded by one of the top police officers in the region!  Newly separated from his long term partner Booker, Police Chief Copper can be found working at the Wasabi Police Station.  His professionalism is unmatched, and Mayor Neko was quoted saying, “We are very happy to have Chief Copper joining us here in Wasabi.  He inspires confidence every time he salutes me, I know we are in good hands with Chief Copper.”  As soon as he was instated, Chief Copper began displaying items for the Lost and Found.  Mayor Neko claimed that everything belonged to her and snatched up every single item.  Chief Copper did not question the ownership of these items… after all, why would the Mayor lie about such things?

Now that the Police Station is completed, Mayor Neko has started raising funds for a new Windmill.  Please see the Gyroid or ask Shizue at Wasabi Town Hall for more details!


  • 3/3/13 – Girl’s Day
    • Meet Shizue at the Town Plaza for a special item!
    • Dainty cakes will be served!  Yummy!
  • 3/31/13 – Bunny Day
    • Special Guest:  The Easter Bunny
    • Spend the day hunting for eggs!  Eggs can be found in the ground, floating in balloons, hiding in trees, even in the river!  Rumors claim that you can even go diving and find Easter Eggs during this holiday.
    • Inside each egg is a special foil which can be used to trade in for the limited edition Egg Series.
  • 4/1/13 – April Fool’s Day
    • Special Guest:  Blanca
    • Be careful – the villagers are set to play pranks on you!


Derry Photo-Bomb!

Despite all the profits from the Stalk Market this week, Mayor Neko still cannot afford to buy a royal crown.

Hear ye, hear ye!

Valentines ❤

わさびの新聞 – Festivale Edition

[Spoiler Alert:  This entry contains details regarding the Animal Crossing: New Leaf holiday called “Festivale”]

Wasabi News – Special Edition

Festivale Guide!

On 3/11/13, Wasabi Village celebrated their first “major” holiday called Festivale.  Mayor Neko has deemed Festivale to be a major holiday because it is an event that takes over the entire town, and there is a special furniture series called the Pavé Series which can only be obtained during this time.  A special guest visitor named Pavé the Peacock can be found dancing at the Town Plaza.  All of the villagers are encouraged to dress up for the event as well, and confetti is floating through the air at all times on this day.  For those who want to join in on dressing up, all Festivale themed clothing items are on sale at the Able Sisters Shop.

The main objective of Festivale (other than to dance and have fun, of course!) is to collect the Pavé Series.  This is somewhat similar to the Festivale holiday celebrated in Animal Crossing: City Folk, but there is a new twist.  In ACCF, you had to hoard loads of different colored candy to exchange with Pavé to receive the furniture items.  It was a long process, as it was very difficult to be sure you had enough of each color candy, so you would have to play mini-games with the villagers to get the candy you needed.

Luckily, things have changed in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.  Instead of loading up on candy, you have to collect colored feathers.  And YES, you can also wear the feathers if you so wish!  Again, it’s the same routine where Pavé asks for a certain color feather, and you have to bring him three of that color feather to exchange for an item.  Where do you get these feathers?  Simply look up – the feathers are floating in the air with the confetti!  Colors for the feathers include white, red, blue, green, yellow, pink and purple.  There is also a very rare rainbow feather, which can be used as well.  (We’ll touch back on that later.)

If you are lucky, you catch the colored feathers that you need and exchange three for one furniture item.  However, it’s very rarely that simple.  Thankfully, villagers in town will help you.  If you have a feather in your pocket and you approach a townie, there are a couple of things that could happen.  They could either ask for a trade of one of your feathers for one of theirs, or they can offer to play “Rock, Paper, Scissors”, or some other mini-game involving choosing one of four choices.  (Due to the language barrier, Mayor Neko was unclear on what goes on in that last mini-game.)  Keep in mind – if you win, you can get another feather, but if you lose a mini-game to one of the townies, you lose a feather!

Mayor Neko had a very successful day at Festivale and would like to share her strategy tips with you all:

  • Before I started worrying about talking to my townies, I walked all over town (watering my flowers as usual) and collected as many feathers as I could find.  When my pockets were full, I took all the feathers I’d snatched and dropped them in the Town Plaza by Pavé.  I organized the feathers by color.  Since I knew I would need three of any color to exchange for an item, I left at least three of each color at the Plaza.
  • I talked to Pavé to see which color feather he wanted.  If I already had it gathered up at the Town Plaza, great!  If not, I’d count to see how many more of that color I needed, and then I would gather any spares of any color (leftover feathers after I’d already grouped three together at the Plaza) and start walking the town.
  • With spare feathers in my pockets, I’d approach a villager.  More often than not, I’d get lucky and the townie would simply ask for a trade and would give me the color feather I needed.  However, if they asked to play a mini-game instead, then my feathers are at risk to be lost, so this is why I recommend only using spare feathers when talking to villagers around town.
  • Once I’d received a feather that I needed, I’d stop talking to the townies and run straight back to the Plaza.  I did this to ensure that I would not accidentally talk to a townie and risk losing the color feather that I’d just obtained.  After dropping off my feather at the Plaza, I’d re-count and see if I had enough.  If not, it was back to picking spares and talking to the villagers in hopes of an exchange.
  • It seems to me that this event somewhat takes pity on you – most likely if I needed a pink feather, the townies would say, “Oh you have a green feather – want to trade it for my pink feather?”  Or maybe the townies were just really nice to me.  I can’t be sure.
  • Don’t bother talking to the townies if you have no feathers in your pockets.  (Other than to be social, of course.)  If you don’t have any feathers, the townies will not engage in a mini-game or a trade.
  • If you are out of spares, resume trying to find floating feathers again.  If you don’t seem to see any floating feathers in the air, I recommend checking the beach.  Like snowflakes, feathers tend to gather down at the beach.  I’d usually find at least two feathers down at the beach at any given time.

If you are lucky, you might find a rainbow feather floating around town.  These rare feathers are special!  Not only are they much cooler looking (and they were a very rare and coveted item in previous Animal Crossing titles, so it’s worth it to just hold onto one if you’re the nostalgic type) but Pavé is very much obsessed with them.  If you give a rainbow feather to Pavé, he will make a special announcement…

Oooh pretty rainbow colored text!  (Well, only four colors.  Still cool though.)  Then Pavé does a very special dance during which he throws his head back and spins around.  Here are some photos to give you a small glimpse.

Pavé does not give you anything special for the rainbow feather, just another item from the Pavé Series.  However, you only have to give one single rainbow feather for an item, rather than three.  It’s worth it just to see the dance.

It is unclear if Mayor Neko misread the details on Festivale, because as you can see from these photos, the event was going on well into the night.  Originally it was thought that the Festivale event was only going to be held from 6am – 6pm.  Mayor Neko was seen catching feathers and doing exchanges with Pavé as late as 10:45pm.  Mayor Neko seems to think that the hours were changed because she didn’t approve of the scheduled time, but Shizue has hinted that the reason Festivale lasted so long might have been because the town ordinance is set for late night hours.  Or the original info Mayor Neko had read could have been wrong!  Shizue has promised to do some research and have more information on the time discrepancy by the time Issue #3 of the Wasabi News goes to print.

All in all, Festivale is a very entertaining holiday where townies look ridiculous, everyone is whistling the town tune, and it makes you want to learn to samba.  Mayor Neko would also like to add that Festivale really helped her learn the words for different colors in Japanese – so that’s a bonus!  In addition, any spare items from the Pavé Series can be sold at the Recycling Shop for ฿12,000, which makes it worth it to play all day and collect as many items as possible.

The Wasabi News hopes that this guide was helpful to anyone who might be curious about Festivale!  Please feel free to post any questions in the comments section!  Now, here’s a selection of photos taken during Festivale:

Many Holidays!

Resetti was FUMING!

Squirt got in trouble last week because I accidentally turned off the Wii without saving.  It doesn’t happen often, but when I do see Resetti it’s usually pretty funny.  He called Squirt a big baby for resetting the game.  I tried to explain that it was an ACCIDENT, I wasn’t trying to cheat or anything…  but rules are rules, I guess!  lol

Northern Lights

Have any of you readers out there been watching the Olympics?  Did you see the Northern Lights in the Opening Ceremony?  I immediately thought of Animal Crossing when I saw the aurora borealis being recreated on stage!  😛  This ‘light show’ occured on 2/13, when Squirt was on his way to visit Japan!  He was going to visit オレンジ and to pick up a copy of the new JP DLC:  the Emperor’s Cap!

Squirt is the Emperor KING!

We had a good laugh about how Squirt looked wearing the Emperor’s Cap and the King’s Beard.  We laughed even more when Orenji’s friend ときーさん entered the town, ALSO wearing a King’s Beard!

Nice Beards!

It was very nice to visit Japan once again!  I had not visited Orenji’s town in a while so it was a lot of fun to hang out!  ありがとうございます オレンジーさん!

The next day was Valentine’s Day!  While I had plans with my RL Valentine ❤ I did manage to log in and find out who was crushing on Squirt this year.  He had sent some hybrid flowers to Agent S in hopes of gaining her love.  So he was very pleased to discover this Valentine Card in his mailbox:

V-Day Card

But then when Squirt talked to Agent S later that day, she said that she didn’t think she’d ever find the right guy for her…?  Squirt was so distraught by what Agent S said that he didn’t even remember to get his special cup of hot cocoa from Brewster, which is only available on Valentine’s Day!  Oh well, there was no time to dwell on this because the following day was FESTIVALE!

Viva Festivale!

Confetti filled the air, and Deb decided to log in and participate in Festivale because she hadn’t experienced it yet.  For those of you out there who might have their dates turned back and haven’t done Festivale this year, here’s a little reminder of how the event works:

  • You will need a LOT of candy.  Many people find that the best strategy for this is to simply stock up on candy during Halloween.
  • First, you must go and speak with Pavé, who will tell you what color candy he wants at the current time.
  • Second, you gather the candy (if you were lucky enough to have the right color) and give it to Pavé.  Don’t forget (cuz I did!) that Pavé will only accept THREE of whatever color he requested!  He’s not cool like Jack was on Halloween, Pavé is very picky and demanding!
  • If you did not have the right color candy, then it’s time to play some games with the townies!  Most people agree that it makes life easier if you follow this strategy:
    • Push any townies you find into the area around the Town Hall.  Dig holes around the townies so that they can’t escape.
    • Invite friends over to help you!  Pavé gives a LOT of repeats so get all the help you can!
    • Be careful, the games you play with the townies are all CHANCE.  If you lose, they will either take a candy from your pocket or take 500 bells!  Be prepared.
    • You can’t play games with the same townie twice.  You must go to a different townie before returning to one you’d spoken with before.

Deb tried to collect as much of the Pavé Series as she could, but doing it all on her own got a bit tedious.  Plus I already have the full set so I wasn’t really trying that hard.  But then later that day, I logged in as Squirt to send some mail to my sister.  That was when I discovered one last tip about Festivale:  WEAR A MATCHING COSTUME!

Squirt's Costume

King Squirt wears this outfit everyday (as you well know) so he didn’t even think about the fact that he was wearing a costume.  But when he talked to any townie roaming around, they would comment that they liked his costume and gave him FREE CANDY!  So that’s an extra way to earn a few pieces of candy without even trying.

Here is Twinx’s newly updated Pavé Room, complete with the new Pavé Clock EU DLC that was released recently!

Pavé Room

It’s not exactly the coolest furniture series, but I don’t mind it as much as SOME people do.  😉 Hehehehe!

Before I go, in some general Shaolin News, I changed the pathway that leads to the Museum so that it is now lined with K.K. Slider songs.  They are really cute and I think it looks nice.  What do you guys think?

New MuseoPath

And finally, someone has decided to leave Shaolin.  Peaches, the clown horse, is packing her bags!  She might even be gone already, I didn’t log in to play ACCF yet today.

So long, Peaches.

See ya in the city, Peaches!  We had a good run.  But it’s time for her to go back to the circus!  lol 😛


My Wii has finally arrived safe and sound, with save files intact!  Although I did forget to check and make sure my Wii Points were still there, but I’m sure they are fine.  

So now I have decided to TT back to 2/23 and continue where I left off.  I’ll probably play Festivale today and then do a few game days in one RL day, just to catch up to today’s date!  I don’t like being behind!  If you happen to be online right now (it’s almost 7pm) check my gate, cuz it’ll be open and we’ll be playing stupid games!  Joy!  Raining confetti!  

First thing I notice – that ‘flowers don’t wilt’ charm didn’t last.  There are brown flowers around.  😦

Things started out slow on Festivale, it was just Squirt trying to find townies and play games.  He had a few candies left over from Pal’s Festivale 2 weeks back.  They were all yellows and greens.  Unfortunately all Pavé wanted to talk about was red and blue candies, of course.  So I continued on, playing games and gathering candies solo.  


Im a BEAST?!?!

I'm a BEAST?!?!


Suddenly, friends started coming by!  It was so great to see some friends after being MIA for a week.  First Bubbzi came to visit, but she couldn’t stay long.  That’s ok!  Not long after Bubbzi left, Vella came by!  Hooray!  She was finally able to catalog the stuff I had ordered for her.  She dropped off a bunch of flowers, which was so nice!

Vella and I started playing the annoying mini games with the townies, and then a new friend named Aya came in through the gates!  I was excited to meet her, since I’ve been reading her blog all week!  🙂  We started talking about the holiday going on in Japan today (or well, tonight here in the USA, since Japan is like +14 hrs ahead of me) which is called Girl’s Day.  I had received a letter from Chokomaru reminding me that I should come check it out.  I was interested in finding out more about it, but we had a task at hand!  With my friends’ help, we were able to corral most of the townies that were outside.  Those silly animals all decided to congregate at like the opposite side of town, but that’s ok.  We got a bunch of candies and furniture from Pavé!  It’s SOOO much easier when you have friends helping you!

Its Vella, Squirt and Aya!

It's Vella, Squirt and Aya!


Aya ended up having to leave, because her friend in Japan wanted her to come check out the holiday.  Vella and I stayed behind, working diligently!  Maybe 2 minutes after Aya left, my buddy Chokomaru came to Shaolin!  And he came with a present for me, a Rice Cake from Girl’s Day!  I asked him if he liked Girl’s Day and he said NO!  Hehehe.  Boy’s Day isn’t until May 5th, so he’s gotta wait lol!  Chokomaru helped us get some candy and furniture too.  But after a while, Festivale gets really tedious.  We ended up calling it a night after gathering 11 or 12 items from the Pavé Series.  I offered some candy and furniture to my buddies for helping out, and then sold the spoils.  I made over 100K from all the hard work!  Hooray!


Bye-Bye Festivale!

Bye-Bye Festivale!



Anyway, I’m just so glad to be back with my Wii functioning normally! (so far…)  I really missed AC!


What a busy morning!  I knew my friend Pal was going to be celebrating Festivale today (she TT’ed one week ahead) so I quickly rushed around my morning chores.  I was going to just run straight to the gate, but I saw Pascal on the Old North Bridge!  So of course, I ran back to my house to get the Scallop.  And he finally gave me the Sea View wallpaper I’ve been wanting!  But the timing couldn’t be worse, b/c I was going to re-do my house with Beach furniture.  Maybe I’ll put the Tropical stuff in the basement, and the Ship stuff on the main room with a bunch of lucky items?  But I also bought an entire Lovely series that I was going to put in the basement….  Oh dear…  I’ll figure something out!

Once I had dumped all my stuff in the house, I raced over to the gate to visit Cairnie!  And it was pretty busy there too!  Confetti was falling from the sky constantly, like rain!  It was pretty cute.  There was an upbeat tune playing.  I went over to the Town Hall, and there was the flamboyant Pavé dancing to a tune all his/her own.  (I think he looks like a drag queen so I’m going with that…)  


Meeting Pavé for the first time!

Meeting Pavé for the first time!

Here’s a breakdown of how Festivale works, in case you’d like a preview for next week.  Basically, you have to talk to Pavé and find out what color candy he wants.  Then you have to talk to the townies and try to get that color candy.  You need three pieces of the specific color candy before Pavé will give you anything.  

Sounds easy?  Well, it’s not!  If you are attempting to complete the Pavé Series on your own, I feel bad for you.  To get one piece of candy, you have to win a minigame with one of the animals in the town.  Only some games allow you to choose what color candy you will get.  Some of the minigames include:  Coin Flip, Rock Paper Scissors, Soccer Shootout and Psychic.  I’m pretty sure there’s something I’m forgetting, but that’ll just be a surprise I guess!  If you lose the minigame, you will lose either a) a candy, if you had one in your pockets b) 500 bells or c) something from your pocket, if you don’t have at least 500 bells.  The animals will NOT play a game with you if you have nothing to wager!  From my experience, the animals will take fish, fruit and shells for the minigames.

When you do get a candy, it will be either Red, Yellow, Green or Blue.  Pavé will tell you which color you need, but you have to talk to him first, and listen to his long song before he will tell you anything.


Viva Festivale!

Viva Festivale!

From my experience, it’s easier to just do a bunch of minigames, and drop off the candy you win in front of the Town Hall.  Don’t have candy in your pocket when you play a minigame, or you could risk losing it!  When there are three of the color Pavé asked for, bring them to him and he’ll give you a piece of furniture.  He’ll also tell you the next color that you need to collect to get another piece of furniture.  The furniture item Pavé gives you is completely random (but all are from the Pavé series, obviously), and it will take a WHILE if you are looking for a specific piece.  In essence, there is a lot of back and forth:  play a game, drop off candy, play a game, drop off candy and so on.  Talking to Pavé is never a quick thing either.  I highly recommend getting a friend to come and help you, if you can!  


Feeling worn out after all this hard work...

Feeling worn out after all this hard work...

Here is Squirt, Pal and Tan, feeling worn out after a day’s worth of Festivale!  As you can see, candy is strewn everywhere.  We tried to keep it organized and drop them in sections for each color.  And just an insider’s tip:  it helps a LOT if you can manage to ‘corral’ the animals behind dig spots (see the lower left corner of this photo, if that helps) so they are stuck in one spot.  This way you know where to find them for the next minigame!


Another Example

Another Example


Here’s another example of how to get the animals stuck in one spot.  It really helps to have a friend with this, because one person can engage the animal in conversation, keeping them in one place while the other digs holes around them so they can’t get away!  It’s a pretty funny process, so it’s definitely worth it to help you out a little bit more!  I certainly wouldn’t want to add running around looking for neighbors to the already long list of tedious things to do during this holiday!  

And one small note:  Townies inside their houses are not participating in Festivale, and will not play minigames.  They are party-poopers.

When I first arrived at Cairnie, I faced the ethical dilemma of deciding whether I should take the entire set now, without doing the actual activities, or really work for it.  I ended up taking the set, after warnings from Pal and her friends.  So I picked up the pieces (Pal had them strewn all over her town) and found everything except the Pavé Chair.  Pal said, “OK don’t worry we’ll probably get one soon enough.”  NOT!  It took us over a half hour of playing games, getting candy, and talking to Pavé (and getting like 10 Pavé Lamps instead…) before we got the Pavé Chair!  It was crazy.  I was thankful that I didn’t have to worry about getting every item of this set.  Not that I even think I’m going to use it, since it’s very weird looking.


After a long day, Northern Lights appear!

After a long day, Northern Lights appear!


I will participate in Festivale when it occurs in Shaolin next Monday.  Mostly because you get 12,000 bells for each piece of furniture!  Sounds like a good way to make some money!  But I won’t be playing all day, that’s for sure!  It was a LOT of work, it was even worse than when Franklin wanted to play Hide and Seek for 12 hours on Thanksgiving!

After visiting Cairnie, I opened the gates of Shaolin to visitors.  Pal came by to sell some fish since her Nook’s was closed, and then Matt came over wearing a crazy t-shirt designed to look like a bare chest!  He had a sailor cap on, so I guess it was fitting to wear something like that…  A new friend came to visit as well, called No Name, from the town Glitch.  (Some people have the craziest town names!)  I visited Glitch too, and it was pretty cool!  Yay for new friends!
