Bring Mariuca Home!

Fancy bringing Mariuca home with YOU? Well, here's your chance to do so when you WIN this exclusive handpainted Mariuca mug!

This mug is my way of thanking Mariuca's readers, friends and supporters so I'm making it really easy for one lucky person to bring Mariuca home! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to be in the running to WIN this adorable Mariuca mug! The contest is open to ALL Mariucans from MBL and BlogCat! If you're not a Mariucan yet, just click here to join My MBL Community or My BlogCat Neighborhood before leaving a comment on this post. Now, check out the rules below:


1. Leave a comment on this post. Tell me how much you want to bring Mariuca home!
2. One winner will be selected randomly, via random. org.
3. Contest starts on July 31, 2007 - August 10, 2007.
4. Winner will be announced here on August 13, 2007.
5. International entries are allowed.

Now, for some information on the mug. This Mariuca mug was specially ordered by me from the very creative Emila. It was handpainted using Pébéo Porcelaine 150 paint, then laid to dry for 24 hours before baking in the domestic oven at 150 degree celcius for 35 minutes. Remarkably resistant to dishwashing and normal detergents, the paint does not wear off after washing.

Have fun and GOOD LUCK! :)

Marzie, I was at you page a min ago when my notebook gave me problem. I thought of logging out but luckily, I didn't. I want to ensure that my shout message greeting at your box did appear. I was surprised that you loaded a new post. What a lovely mug & you ordered that from Emila!! If there are more than one of those. I hope to bring THEM ALL. That is how much I want Mariuca HOME. I just love the way you look on the cup. Emila painted you 'blushing' away... Don't be shy ok... make yourself at home :) :)

Mariuca July 31, 2007 1:57 AM

He he, Janice is the first commenter! Good luck Jan! I wanted to have the contest last Fri, but due to certain "things" I postponed it until today! :) :)

What a lovely mug. You must be kidding right when you said the mug is dishwashing resistant? Shame really, as it's such a wonderful piece of art to be used as an eating utensil.
Anyway, did Emila really use her cooking oven to bake it.? o.o

Mariuca July 31, 2007 2:02 AM

Oh no Joe, u don't have to use it as a drinking mug, u can of course just display it somewhere! That's just the cleaning instructions, should the mug get dirty! And it is a lovely mug, I LOVE it too LOL! :)

Mariuca July 31, 2007 2:05 AM

And yes, Emila did bake it in her oven, he he he...

That's a great prize. I'd love to have that mug too :)

Gelombang Rakyat July 31, 2007 11:52 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, tukang kayu and tukang simen, Wondah woman and Superman, okay, let us all salute Marzie! We all love her so much ever more and more. I personally salute her for bringing in this Mariuca, onto the next level of blogging excitements. Wah! These are so nice. I wanna 'em all. Else, at least one with the pic. I know I cannot bring Marzie home, but this Mariuca, I shall. Yes, to fit my Cafe 21! I have a suggestion though, can each of us have our Mariucian image I mean avatar on one of these. Can make business also!!! Let have fun, be funny or simply funtastic. I miss this ambiance already. And I salute the dearest actions by Bobby Revellian, Nihal, Janice Ng, the poet and his poem and all who have together fix and put up the blogging flag within the bloggosphere. Now, baru depa tau siapa Marzie dan Mariuca kami. Tak malu, padan muka. Yes, siapalah yang belum kenal dan sayang...always remembered Phoebe yang wangi!!!

Mariuca July 31, 2007 11:56 AM

Ha ha ha Zubli, hang cakap padan muka kelakar gila! Thank you Zubli for ur wonderful comment here. You planning to drink Cafe 21 from this Mariuca Mug?! Can... asalkan u remember the washing directions!

I want to bring the mug home with me because it's the cutest darn thing I have seen in a while....I would drink out of it though...oooopppppsss. But isn't that what mugs are for???


Mariuca July 31, 2007 12:17 PM

Hello Morgan! Sure, u can use it as a real drinking mug, as long as you WIN it! LOL :) Thanks for joining!

NafaSg July 31, 2007 12:54 PM

Hello Marzie!!!

Your mug is certainly a masterpiece. All thanks to Emila the Mariuca Mug Creator!

Hmmm...do you realize something? The girl in the mug actually looks a little like one of the Nafa gals. That is one reason why Nafa should be the proud owner of the Mariuca Mug! But that's not all of course. Most of all, we want that mug to show some love and respect to our beloved blogger friend here. So every sip from the mug will remind us of Little Miss Marzie... =)

Haha! I can imagine our Nafa peeps battling eye to eye for that one mug if we got it. Ahahaha! =D

Take care. Love ya!

Mariuca July 31, 2007 1:00 PM

Ooooh Nafa, that is indeed a good reason for u to have this Mariuca Mug! Good luck guys and thanks for the support, love ya!!! :) :) :)

Mariuca July 31, 2007 1:13 PM

Mark!! I love the sound of your comment ... mug of champions LOL! Thanks for joining, you are now in the running to make Mariuca yours! :)

J@n!ce July 31, 2007 2:49 PM

Marzie : This is going to be funny, imagine B joining in....skali really pick him, then Mariuca is REALLY BACK HOME....isn't that cool? :)
It will really be nice for B to drink from the cup :)

Mariuca July 31, 2007 2:58 PM

Ha ha ha Janice, you're so smart lor.... But B isn't in MBL so unless he joins, then only I'd get to really bring Mariuca HOME, that would be really cute! :) :) :)

Anonymous,  July 31, 2007 3:15 PM

I have no word to say but I love to bring the lovely MariucaMug to my kids. I'm sure they will love it too. But the prob is I have 3 kids, I juz want to be fair and make them happy. So, it's ok, let others win this time...hehe :p

Mizohican July 31, 2007 11:19 PM

Every morning,
the day breaks and the sun appears.
The mist vanishes mysteriously,
and the little baby bird twitters.

But everything around me,
is still night time:
Dark, gloomy & sad,
Life becomes completely meaningless.

I walk to my kitchen,
pour myself a coffee.
It didn't help me at all,
in fact I now feel worse.

I look at my coffee cup,
and see my life flashing before me.
I then look at the noose hanging above,
oh how seductive it looks.

And then I realized,
if I start my day everyday,
with a coffee brewed in Mariuca cup,
will things change for the better?

The answer is yes yes and yes,
The Mariuca cup is the answer!
It will deliver me from all misery,
and make me a better person in Life.

The cup of wisdom, the cup of Nirvana,
I find my Shangri-La in it.
For the Paradise journey comes,
not from the cup, but the picture on it.

- Sandman hanging on a noose.

Mariuca July 31, 2007 11:33 PM

Sandman!!! Yay, you joined! :) Thanks for the awfully nice poem, I LOVE IT! It's so cool that I feel like having a special contest just for u LOL! Good luck! :) :) :)

J@n!ce July 31, 2007 11:42 PM

Sandman, your uniquely wisdomised poem really funny lah. Can still find Shangri-La in the cup. How magical the cup is. Thanks for the nice poem & I think you bring a smile to Marzie. I am grateful to you :) :)

Mariuca August 01, 2007 12:00 AM

Oh yes Janice, Sandman's poem definitely made me smile.... and left me even more impressed with his writing skills! :) :) :)

FL Sam August 01, 2007 12:10 AM

Wow. What a beautiful mug. What more, another creation by the creative Emila. Sure, I want to bring Mariuca home and display it at my showcase. Hope to be the lucky one. :)

Mariuca August 01, 2007 12:30 AM

Yay! Uncle Sam is here! :) Thanks for joining Uncle Sam, and maybe...just maybe, YOU will be the lucky one to bring home this Mariuca Mug by the creative Emila (my best buddy!) Good luck :)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 01, 2007 12:48 AM

wow! it was indeed a well written poem by sandman. I can see why his poem has made your night, marzie. :))

Mariuca August 01, 2007 12:58 AM

Hola Jean! Yeah.... Sandman definitely made my night, I hope he writes me more cool poems (hint hint Sandman!) LOL! :) :) :)

In fact, I shall never use it, but shall continue to sip beverages out of my Blue plastic cup.Your mug I shall keep on a special shelf, where I keep All my very dearest things! :)

I hope everything is ok today. Earlier I had a premonition that something was wrong. I hope I am wrong. Have a great day Marzie:)

Trix August 02, 2007 11:07 PM

'Jesse lurks in corner watching proceedings with a very beady eye' :)

NIHAL August 02, 2007 11:40 PM

Now, this is truly something! A great gift for sure. And Emila, you did this so wonderfully.

Marzie, life can sometimes be so unpredictable, but not a day goes by that I don't think of you, So, before I lose the opportunity, I wanna say, you are indeed that special individual ..... a true friend! :)

PS : To be frank, I've been missing most of you out there :(

Mariuca August 03, 2007 12:26 AM

Ha ha ha Jesse!! You and Janice make a funny pair! Oh yeah, Jan is definitely eyeing the mug carefully, but don't worry dear! "Your" mug is still safe and sound...for now! ;)

Nihal!! It's always good to see you here. All our friends miss you too, but we know you're having probs with your internet connection and we'll still be here when you're ready to come back. And I want to thank you for being such a wonderful friend to me, you have been truly awesome, don't forget that ok? :) :) :)

Thanks for joining in the race for the Mariuca Mug! And yes, Emila could not have done a better job, everyone seems to love the mug! :) :) :)

J@n!ce August 03, 2007 9:48 AM

Jesse, ta-da....I'm always here... hiding in the other corner... meow-meow... you better come out !!...

Marzie, dis is my last comment here.Even if I didn't win, I'm glad dat I've tried my best 2 please you ;)


Mariuca August 03, 2007 5:47 PM

Hi Naz, sure or not this is ur last comment? LOL! Anyway, another dose of good luck to u for making it your 4th comment here :)

Janice! Ha ha ha... thanks for ur comedy here. I'm so enjoying it! It makes me feel like giving u n Jesse something else if neither of u get to bring ME home...and hey...maybe I will! ;)

emilayusof August 03, 2007 5:53 PM

Hahaha...Janice is so funny! I am laughing like crazy!

Mizohican August 03, 2007 6:50 PM

Whoah!!! It felt just like yday when I wrote a simple poem straight from the heart, and now there are already 100+ comments!!! wow. Was tied up past couple of weeks working on a project (if you had visited my blog then, you wud know). Anyway, Im back to my "normal" postings now. So when are you announcing the date?

I'm telling you girl, you don't need to look at all the other competitors. Just look deep inside your heart and you will find your answer there And if you dont find me there, then you are looking at the wrong places within your heart. Look deeeeeper! I'm theeree!!!


Ps. If you are in India right now, I would have invited you to this weekend's party at my house. Me and my close friends are celebrating the occasion that I won the Mariuca cup! I'll try sending you the pics...

J@n!ce August 03, 2007 7:30 PM

J@n!ce August 04, 2007 1:31 AM

Marzie, you have to be the most popular blogger in the world with a personal blog. That's what happens to wonderful people who deserve recognition for being such a great person. Whether I win the cup or not, I have already won with a great friend like you:):):)

I would love this to be my blogging cup for my caffeine intake, I can promise it will be used........ a lot specially early in the morning & early evening when my pre schooler gets his second wind & I need to as well.

Mariuca August 06, 2007 2:45 AM

Hola Madamspud, welcome and all the best to you! :):):)

My day starts off normal. I wake up brush my teeth, maybe hop in the shower, but life feels not right. Like I am missing something. I grab a plain old mug out of the cupboard, heat up some coffee and get to blogging. What am I missing? A Mariuca mug, it will for fill my wildest dreams. It's a true work of art. Every sip of the coffee in it would taste like angels lips were kissing me as I drank. The entire day would be stress free, worry free, and full of exciting new things. The mug would be kept well care of, and it'd be the only thing I ever drank out of for the rest of my entire life. What would be better than reading your blog? That's easy, reading your blog while drinking out of a Mariuca mug and listening to your awesome choices of music.

Mariuca August 06, 2007 11:05 AM

Ha ha Mike, thanks for ur mug comment here. Very creative! ;) Good luck to u too, let's see if the Mariuca Mug goes to YOU! Have a great Monday :):)

Bobby Revell August 07, 2007 2:16 PM

I prayed last night that I win for 8 hours hehehe:) I wouldn't drink from it, I would charge people to touch it for luck:):):)

Trix August 07, 2007 8:15 PM

Miss Marzie, I see you have been sneaking around my blog with your Mug in hand,thinking I would not see you. Yes, I confess, I did say Meow to My errr, I mean, YOUR Mug !! How could I resist it, your Mug has me entranced.... :)

Mariuca August 08, 2007 3:14 PM

Hey Bobby and Jesse, the mug is still up for grabs!

Jesse u kill me with ur funny lines LOL! Go to Jesse Mariuca mug.... ;)

Mariuca August 17, 2007 3:01 PM

Thanks to everyone who participated in my contest. Look out for the next one!

Love and hugs! :):):)

Divina August 22, 2007 7:02 PM

Mariuca dearest, did I miss this contest? I was away on vacation for three weeks... But if I still have a chance, I want to participate! Why? Because I want to have my friend close to me, in my house every morning with my coffee or tea! Thank you for making my blog and neighborhood brighter, you are amazing. Big big hugs from me,


Mariuca August 22, 2007 7:40 PM

Divina!!! You're a tad too late sweetie! But I'm happy to hear you had a great vacation and you thought of me every time u saw those lovely mini fragrance sets. I wish I too was lucky enough to be vacationing and perfume scouting for 3 weeks!

Hey, I will let you know when I have my next contest ok, then you HAVE to join that one for sure! Loads of love and hugs for you too! :):):)

Mariuca October 13, 2008 4:48 AM

Morning ladies!

Emila, Ha ha ye la, LJ siap congratulasi beberapa kali gitu! ;)

Debbs and LJ, I'd love to give out more Mariuca mugs, but unfortunately my mug creator has a difficult time coming up with my mug, susah nak paint gitu! So unless u can bug her and bug her some more to change her mind, there won't be any more Mariuca mugs to give out boo hoo! Best kan my Mariuca Mugs?? Faster persuade her he he! :):):)

emilayusof October 16, 2008 11:59 AM

dunnolah! the work is so leceh. sometime kena re-do sampai 5, 6 kali sebab tersmearlah, tersilap lukis lah, teritulah terinilah...

kalau yang sempoi mempoi macam i buat untuk my giveaway tu mungkin boleh difikirkan.

Mariuca October 16, 2008 2:56 PM

Wahahahaha ye Emila itu?

Elara October 20, 2008 2:10 AM
