Malisha On Neopets
Greetings, reader. My alias on Neopets is Malisha but a selected few know my real name. I respond to either or so don't be afraid to address me however you wish!
I have been here since 2007. My first account was created at the young age of 7, with the assistance of my sister and cousin. Unfortunately, I forgot the special word for it and began using this account as my main. My first account was lost in the purge as a result.
After 6 years, I was finally legible for the Neoboards. During ACVI, I began posting on the Shenkuu SKoreboard, quickly leading to my first friendships on Neo. I learned the title of Cookie Monster for my love for cookies and motivational words. I dedicate my gallery to the ninjas on the SKoreboard.
After ACVI, a friend introduced me to Habitarium. I reached level 50 approximately a month later and slowly learned the secrets behind Habbi. In September, I began gifting and became a somewhat "regular" for the Habbi board.
In October 2011, a girl named Kat began to interact with me. We posted on each other's gifting boards and another girl named Star joined us. Together, we created the Gifting Trio, then expanding into a guild. I became the "founder" as I formed the idea, guild and began the first pages. The original group broke up within a week and Kat and I revived it. The Habitarium Gifting Group- Revived remains standing to this day.
Around March 2012, I gained a love for pound-surfing, and started up my first site: Abandoned Pets. Apparently, I wanted more than just being a regular site, so I revamped it into a writing site on January 2013: Abandoned Memories. I lost interest in it and closed it after about a week. Then, one year after starting my first site, in March 2013, I returned to the site community with an intention of being useful, thus opening Unwound Clock, one status directory in the community. I also opened another site in July 2013: Diabolical Box, which is my writing site. My third site, Ambidexterity, was meant to be an extra for DB but I acquired so many names and thus made it my third site.
Nowadays, I don't do all that much...hang around with my guilds, update my sites, open Habbi...whenever June rolls around, I abandon everything (but the HGG-R) to play my heart out.
Malisha in Real Life
My real name is Sara. That's right, a simple S-A-R-A, no H, no nothing. My mom thought this made my name unique and it did but it also caused a headache because I know so many Sarah's and I just hate being one of them. Whenever someone yells it across the hallway and their voice is one I don't recognize, I don't even respond, so it's almost like it's not my name at all. So call me Malisha on Neopets, okay? As long as it's not maybe, I'm fine.
Currently 16 years of age, unemployed but volunteering as an assistant swimming instructor. I attend secondary school (reluctantly) with aspirations of becoming a writer. It's my only dream, in actuality. My field of interest is social sciences. I do not like math or science. At all. I also despise public areas, parties and gatherings. I prefer observing others and being by myself than hanging out with friends.
I am the family's tomboy due to my athletic ability, messy manner and disdain for dressing up, shopping and make-up. I am the youngest, second tallest, can never refuse a plea for help and can miraculously find everything that was once lost.
My interests range from video games (Pokémon, Prof. Layton, Ace Attorney, Trauma Center, Fire Emblem, Mario & Luigi and much more) to anime (Pokémon, Digimon, Megaman, Cardcaptor Sakura and others) to singing, baking/cooking, writing, swimming and playing with my plushies. At school, I am percieved as the quiet hardworking student who sits at the front of the class due to terrible eyesight. I carry a notebook around me daily and use it to write my stories, ocassionally notes. I can sneak moments to write in every class.
Ever since elementary school, I've always dreamed of becoming a writer because I love how words can make or break a story. What I really want to do though is to prove all of the stereotypes in the world are wrong (kind of impossible but certainly a goal) because nothing is so cut and dry. Everyone is unique in their own way.
That being said, the one quality that distinguishes me from the rest is I strive to be different. While I do linger around the bottom of the class popularity chart, I prefer doing things my own way. I'm never afraid to show my opinion on stereotypical matters and I always like to break away from the current social trends. That's why you can never find my name in any social networking site.
- Whenever I stare at the computer screen for a while, I tend to close one eye.
- I bring a notebook to school and write in it all the time. Yes, that includes lessons, presentations and lectures.
- I can use up to six different pencils when writing in my notebook.
- I would take off one earring and forget about the other one until some time later.
- Both my sister and I can mimic the cries of Pokemon as heard in the anime.
- I can tell you practically every Pokemon and their evolution stages except for Kalos (still memorizing it).
- I can sing while I type.
- I memorized almost every case in the Ace Attorney series except for AAI.
- Each of my plushie's hold a different personality and my sister and I play their roles flawlessly.
- I'm very defensive of my plushies so no touching. Ever.
- Despite my messy manner, I am a very good secretary.
Habitarium Gifting Group- Revived
The Habbi Gifting Group started in November 2011 with me and my two friends from the Habbi boards. We were all gifters and thought it would be more efficent to have one board so we could gift altogether. More and more people wanted to join us so we expanded into a group. But then, so many complications happened that the group just collapsed. It broke my heart- it truly did. I deleted the guild and wanted nothing of it. However...after a few days, I revived the guild because this concept of gifting is truly an interesting one.
The group is very small. We do not have a member cap or age limit- anyone can join so long they have a running Habbi. Heck, 1/3 of the members are active, actually. It's very laid-back and I don't really want to complicate things any further.
Guild Webbie | Requesting Info
The construction of AB began in September. I was pondering about what I could add to DB since stories couldn't be added on a daily basis or anything else, really. The thought of untaken site names came into mind and so I began to collect them. My amount grew vast and I thought it might be better to open my a new site rather than putting them on a writing site.
The name Ambidexterity comes from Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, a visual novel video game. Ambidexterity is the name of the first puzzle room you encounter and it is also the remix of Unary Game from Nine Persons, Nine Doors, Nine Hours. If you're older than 19, love a good story and some gore, you'll love those two games.
Updating AB isn't at the top of my priority list because it's very low-key. I update it every Friday with new names or a simple update. There isn't much to do but brush up on the site resources.
Achievements & Awards
Diabolical Box is the result I got after writing way too many story openings for my first site Unwound Clock. At the beginning, all I wanted to do was offer stories for the public to read but I felt that wasn't enough so I offered writing resources as well. Requests were offered in a more "hidden" way but now they're just an extra.
A writing resource is simply a template for those with writers' block to give them a little push. They can be edited easily and may be the one thing that could be your next bestseller.
The name originated from Prof. Layton and the Diabolical Box because I loved the game so much as well as the contribution a box provided for the storyline. A box is similar to a book- you don't know what's inside until you open it. If the lid/cover is closed, its contents will remain a secret forever.
I started working on Diabolical Box in May 2013 but delayed the opening until July 2, 2013 due to the Altador Cup and my dad's birthday. So far, stories triumph over resources and 1 request have been completed.

Diabolical Box's Story Notebook
Not all of my stories are spur-of-the-moment. I do take the time to think about them and develop them before I start writing. However...in this case, all I need is a rough summary and a title. Everything else will be established once I have inspiration and music.

Unwound Clock Recommendations
I am always curious about how do directories recommend sites. A few would recommend them at the beginning and then leave it as that. Then what about the new sites that have no idea what they're doing and then grow to be one of the best sites in the community? Will they be deemed as a regular site forever?
My requirements for automatic recommendation are:
- Frequent updates
- Quality content
- Fast, friendly and postive service
- Good amount of content OR frequent open requests
Please note this will always be changing.
For those who are regular sites, here is how I can deem you recommended:
- Gradual and visible improvement in content or service
- More open requests (ie. having open requests once a month to open requests once a week)
- More content available to use
Please note this will always be changing.

I list all and every site with requests. This does NOT include:
- Adoption agencies

I have recieved forms from these sites and I would like to make it clear that UC does not list these sites.
