Oppalla has volunteered to be my Gourmet.
If she looks sad, it's not because I'm not feeding her. Instead, she's being fed gourmet foods every hour or so. She knows she needs to stay hungry to sample as many foods as possible, but she thinks it's worth it. :)
On April 23, 2015, Oppalla earned her Honorary Member badge by eating a Pootato.
Thank you, Daniel, for such an epic gift.
On Sunday, May 17, 2015 Oppalla entered the Gourmet Club Top 50 by eating Geopeppers.
On Monday, May 18, 2015 Oppalla ate her 1000th gourmet food-Parts on a Pizza.
On Friday, July, 17, 2015 at 10:05am, NST, Oppalla had her gourmet treat #1151...a Cadaverous Cola which was a special gift to her from Aunt Cindy and Trinity Rae. That drink placed her at the entry point for her Bronze Award. Congrats! Oppalla. You've been a real trooper.
On the afternoon of July 17th, at 4:30pm, NST, Oppalla had a smile on her face after eating 10 more foods in a row to reach #10 on the Gourmet Club High Score Table and secure her Bronze Award.
On Wednesday, August 5th, Oppalla scored her 1200th Gourmet Point by eating a Lost Desert Draik Egg.
On August 14, 2015, Oppalla said: My Aunt Nuffy is one of the most generous people in alllllll Neopia. She knows I'm the gourmet in the family and wants to help me earn my Silver Award. Everyday this week packages kept arriving from her...sometimes 3 or 4 a day...and they were all filled with scrumptious-looking treats just for ME! Today, I get to start eating them and I am VERY excited. Thank you muchmuchmuch, Aunt Nuffy! You're the best! HUGS.
On August 21, 2015, Oppalla said: WooHoo!!!! Today is a very special day. I earned my
The final hours were intense. Mom had already fed me lots of food, but at 2:00 this afternoon, I still needed one more meal to get my badge. Aunt Nuffy came to the rescue with a Chain of Onions_. That food got me up to Silver level. Then Mom fed me a Neotruffle for dessert to guarantee my award.
Thank you so much, Aunt Nuffy for helping me. HUGS. And, thank you, Mom, for letting me make this culinary journey. So now...do we get to go for the Gold? :D
September 11, 2015 was a very memorable occasion...Miss Kaileigh Leighanne became "independent!!!!! And Oppalla celebrated with a Chocolate Crown of the Faeries. Hugs and love to Aunt Nuffy and Kaileigh.
September 24, 2015: Aunt Cindy and TrinityRae are helping me find the last few foods I need to earn the Gold Award. Aunt Cindy is TERRIFIC at bargaining on the Trading Post! She found me lots of yummies and surprised me with a wonderful gift. Today, I ate an Illusen's Negg which was a very special and delicious treat. Huge hugs and love to Aunt Cindy and TR. You two are amazing!
September 26, 2015: I did it!!! I earned my Gold Award! The food that won me my award was a Stack It High Cake...boy did that fill me up. Phew! I'd like to thank all my friends who helped me earn this honor...especially Aunt Nuffy, Aunt Cindy, and my inspiration, TrinityRae. I'd also like to thank all the people on the Charter Gourmet Chat for their encouragement and congratulations.
8 months and 12 days, 1302 gourmet foods eaten and many new friends. This journey has been awesome. HUGS. And tomorrow for breakfast, I'm having a plain ole cheese omelette and maybe some strawberry jelly. :D
