Mariuca Celebrates Aidilfitri with ...

Hello everyone! It’s finally time to announce the winner for my second contest! Are you guys excited? Well, I am but before I announce who’ll be celebrating Aidilfitri with Mariuca, allow me to say thanks to everyone who participated in my contest. As usual, you guys were awesome and I loved reading every single one of your comment on my 2nd Contest post. Some of you made me laugh, some made me swoon, and some made me want to have a duplicate Mariuca Raya Mug so I could have 2 winners instead of just 1!

Once again, my adorable assistant Phoebe, will be presenting the Mariuca Mug to this contest winner so without further ado, I am pleased to announce that the winner for my 2nd Mariuca Mug Contest is .... the one and only NAFASg from Singapore!!! Nafa was the 3rd commenter for my 2nd Contest post and they were randomly picked as the winner to celebrate Aidilfitri with Mariuca! I can’t wait to “meet” the NAFA gang because they are so cool and I’m such a big fan. It'll be great to be in the company of such wonderful writers and friends that form the NAFA Network! Congratulations NAFA!!! Now, GP will always be with you so you can enjoy more good luck and love!

Before I sign off, I'd like to express my sincere gratitude once more to everyone who took part in my contest. Your participation means a whole lot to me. If you didn’t win this contest, fret not as I’ll be having another contest really soon, so look out for that one!

Jamy October 11, 2007 10:12 AM


Im not sure whether im the first commenter or not. But then im be the one view that this post is still 0 comment!!! So I assume that Im the 1st one!!

CONGRA NAFA!!!! I feel that NAFA deserve to get this RAYA MUG so that they can celebrate hari raya adilfitri with marzie too even though few of u guys said the mug will give it to me without

But for sure if for Chinese New Year, IT WILL BE MINE!!!!! Bcos Im Chinese. Announcement, Im not Malay as most of u guys wll get confused with my race. Malay one is JaMiLah ...Mine is JaMiLLa ...its a nickname that I found in the book of library. GOt meaning but I forget. *Lousy mind*

Anyway, NAFA, take away home with MARZIE RAYA MUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! Then I will take away the coming contest that Marzie mentioned! MUaaaahhhha Muaaahhhhhaahhhhh! Advance booking contest!!!

Yay Genie Princess responded!

Sorry lah respond lambat, coz we were busy preparing for Raya as usual. Hehe! And now our Raya would be so much more glittery and bright, all thanks to the specially designed Mariuca Mug that we have managed to clinch.

We will surely show off the mug to our friends back in Singapore when they come for Raya visits. We will tell them that we have a very sweet and beautiful friend named Marzie who had awarded us the mug! Yippee!! =)

NafaSg October 11, 2007 6:42 PM

Oh yes! We must also tell our friends back in Singapore that we were personally awarded the mug by a cute and cuddly cat named Phoebe. Yay! =)This is the first time ever in our lives that we are awarded by a kitty cat. Must tell everyone abt this! =D

LadyJava October 11, 2007 7:52 PM
