CODES for Match 3 Quest: Atlantis Ally

Yes, I never thought I'd post for an android game.

I like playing match-3 type of games. They are no-brainers compared to trivia and quiz games, and they serve their purpose of killing short time. Of these games, I like those that let you have an avatar which levels up as you play along. Puzzle Quest 2 and Match 3 Quest are my recommended games.

However for Match 3 Quest, codes are needed to spin a wheel for prizes. Players share their codes through game reviews, and it becomes tiring to browse through reviews just to get codes, so I thought of compiling them here.

Here are the codes from the game reviews that players may use:

Math Project: Math in Art

by: Jann Manuel and Jeweleen Licup
Inspired by “The Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji: The Great Wave Off Kanagawa,” a woodblock painting by Hokusai, "whabesz" is our interpretation of the Fibonacci sequence and the cosine waves. We used coloring pencils, as we wanted our artwork to look minimalist. Overall, the project was quite exciting to do, as this was the first time we incorporated math with art thus it was somewhat fun and different. We never would have thought that math and art could be fused together but looking back, we could see now how math can be related to everything such as beauty, science, sports, art etc.

The Princess
by Jamica DyJuanco
The gown shows the parabola and the clear details that express my passion for designing and my creativity in doing this art. Within the gown is the line of symmetry that shows how similar the two sides of the parabola should be. The line of symmetry is represented by the laces that run down the gown. The vertex is the rose on her waist which symbolizes the highest point of the downward parabola. I wanted this to be simple yet elegant with the colors bringing the princess come to life by painting because it brings an effect.

Rainbow Roses
by John Edward Dy and Uma Jagwani
In this painting, the mathematical concept that was used was the Fibonacci sequence. The theory is primarily a sequence of numbers where a number is the sum of the two previous numbers. With this, the subject that was chosen to symbolize the Fibonacci sequence was a rose. A rose in itself is a representation of the Fibonacci sequence, with the arrangement of the petals following the pattern. Furthermore in our art work, the fourteen roses are arranged in another Fibonacci sequence. Moreover, a recent popular trend is rainbow roses. It is said that this is made possible because of the Fibonacci sequence. The process is to cut the stem of a rose vertically four times and place each piece of stem in different colored water. To enhance the concept, the roses are painted in rainbow colors.

Day 63: Growing Sweet Basil Through Cutting

Immediately after getting new plants for the apartment, I set my eyes on growing more sweet basil through cutting. After reading a few sites on how to go about it, I ventured on the simple task of cutting and rooting new basil. SO simple that after just five days, my cutting has rooted.

Day 58: Apartment Goes Green

I have always been fascinated with life in general, including plant life. While I am not a garden enthusiast, nor have I tried seriously growing plants, I appreciate gardening and enjoy marveling at the growth of a plant. Just last week my flatmates have decided to keep some. So with a little research on which indoor plants good to keep in an apartment, we decided on the following list:

#100HappyDays Challenge

We live in a time that is fast changing the world. Each day we struggle to keep up with the pace, and thus find lesser time to enjoy the moment we are in. This is the premise of the #100HappyDays challenge; that no matter how busy our schedules are, can we still find time to be happy?

Baguio Cathedral: Our Lady of Atonement

Baguio Cathedral is located at Cathedral Loop near Session Road. It is most famous for its pink facade and 100-step stairway leading to where it stands. It is also known as Our Lady of Atonement Cathedral, and is the see of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Baguio.

What I loved most about this cathedral is its aura of majesty as it stands on its own overlooking the city proper. Thus, much to my disappointment when we returned in 2013, the cathedral has now a sprawling complex of stores and parking lots. While it is a sign of growth, I could only hoped that they should have retained its lordship over the small area it stands on. Another source of dissatisfaction was how the stairway to the cathedral now looked. Its entrance is sandwiched among commercial establishments that one could hardly notice its billboard as gateway to a holy and revered place. If you plan to go to Baguio, check out the photo below to make sure you know where the 100-step stairway is.

In any case, a visit to the cathedral is still worth one's spiritual time however times would change its look. Here are some more photos of the cathedral:
