Here's Mariuca!

Many of you already know the face behind this blog, so I got my best buddy Emila, to come up with an illo of me with my adorable Phoebe instead! Thanks Emila, love my hair here! And NOW, I can finally answer the Face Behind the Blog meme I received from the fun & friendly Supermom of It's A Miracle and the funny & cute Uncle Sam of Simple Life.

Blog Title Mariuca - Wishing On A Falling Star
Description A look into my world as a freelance copywriter, who works from home. Loves cats, perfumes and daydreaming.
Why "Wishing On A Falling Star" Because I am always daydreaming and making wishes, which I believe will come true so long as I make them on the brightest star!

Instruction to this meme

1. Post a short blog article that includes a photograph (or a series of photos) showing the face behind your blog. If you already show a photo somewhere on your site (such as in your about page), then make your post more interesting and choose a photo that’s not currently online.
2. Include links to other people that have displayed a photo, or include their photos in your post, adding a reference.
3. Tag as many others as you like in your post to spread the meme. Each person tagged should create their own post and repeat the process.
4. If you
link back to me here and drop a comment, I’ll be sure to include links back to you.

Mariuca August 08, 2007 1:26 AM

Hi Conan, welcome to my blog! You can tell all that from my illo huh... actually the evil Mariuca does appear once in a while, but only when the nice Mariuca gets really pissed off...LOL! Thanks for dropping by :):)

Mariuca August 08, 2007 1:58 AM

I played The Sims a couple of times, but dunno why it doesn't fascinate me as much as SIM CITY... ;)

Adrian August 08, 2007 8:02 AM

Happy Wednesday to you! :)

J@n!ce August 08, 2007 9:19 AM

Marzie : I cannot believe that I am so late into this comment supposed to be the first one to comment mah since I receive your email. Sigh... all bcos of my notebook, it just hinder me from coming here...
You are super cute, you told me that you have an idea what to put up & this is the illo behind it? Its really nice leh, you should put it permenantly at your sidebar. I love the silky hair & the way u look down at Phoebe is totally sweet. Really smart of you to have thought of that since you run out of photos... LOL :)
That jacket looks familiar, I saw it at 'the 2 of us'... I love that pic !! Very nice, love ya ;)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 08, 2007 9:42 AM

LOL! i had my mind & soul in the Sims. I was awake till 4-5am everyday to play this super addicting pc game. I was still in my secondary school that time. So, imagine, sleeping at 4-5am, then wake up at 6.30am for school.. LOL! I was insane!!

emilayusof August 08, 2007 10:21 AM

Hi Marzie & friends! Glad you guys like the illo.

Mariuca August 08, 2007 10:25 AM

Jean u crazy woman you, but I totally understand. SIM CITY keeps me up for hours when I get into it, just can't stop, sleep is furthest from my mind! ;) Must try playing The Sims again!

Mariuca August 08, 2007 10:27 AM

Hey Marz, nice illustration. You a gamer, huh? Cool, both the wife and me are crazy about games too. And we both also love Sim City, though the wife loves The Sims more :) She's into some war games titles too. We used to play networked war games games and she most of the time kicks my butt .. how embarrassing ... LOL!

Mariuca August 08, 2007 2:58 PM

Hola Nick! I AM a gamer, actually hubbs and me both.. Hubbs loves Football Manager although I don't really understand that game la! Happy it seems when he gets to buy good players and all ha ha ha...

I am such a SIM CITY freak, been waiting for SIM CITY 5 but I doubt it'll come out any time soon.... Want to see what new buildings will unlock.. LOL!

Unknown August 18, 2007 4:02 PM

Hey Marzie-Probably a stupid question, but is Sim City the same as Sims? If so, I love Sims! A friend recently passed it to me and I am totally hooked!

Mariuca August 19, 2007 1:05 AM

Hi Barrett, it's not a stupid question of course! They're not the same game but I know many ppl like Sims besides you. I just happen to prefer Sim City, cause I get to build and run cities and MAKE MONEY! The Sims is ok, am just not hooked on it as I am on Sim City! :):):)

LadyJava September 28, 2008 6:27 AM
