Special Delivery


I have a special delivery for Nick! My apologies for the delay in mailing out the coveted Mariuca Halloween Mug to you. I surely didn't intend for any hold-up but as usual there were too many things going on around here. With work, blogging, housework, my kitties and family time occupying my typical week, I only managed to sit down and wrap up your gift last weekend. By the way, I think I did a terrible wrapping job! I mean, 1 piece of brown paper would've been more than sufficient to wrap the box but I ended up using 2 pieces of brown paper in order to beautify the mess I created with the first layer of wrapping. Even then, it didn't do much to camouflage the visibly messy taping and folds of my wrapping! Anyway, it's what's inside that counts right? And once again, thank you for joining Mariuca's 3rd Contest. I hope you'll enjoy your coffee even more now with this brand new mug!

Just in case you're wondering, the other box on the left is an early Christmas pressie from B to our jolly Genie King, or as B said "just a little something from one Liverpool fan to another"! So enjoy your packages guys and don't forget to look out for Mr. Postman. I don't know about your guy, but mine always seems to be in a hurry. Contrary to popular belief, the postman does not always ring twice. In my case, he rings only once and if I don't answer the door fast enough, he's more than happy to quickly disappear and leave me with a "Sorry we missed you" slip instead!

Have a good Tuesday everyone. :)

Whoa, cool. I'm gonna sit out there and hijack that post man the moment he gets here ... LOL! He's our regular friendly postman and he knows there's always someone around. Looking forward to receiving it.

Adrian - congrats on your Christmas present, you Liverpool fan you :D

Hi Sayang Marzie,
Wonderful Piece of Work! U have packed absolutely gr8. the way those packages r looking in the snap, i understand tht tht work done is the best.
i got to learn few packing tips from you. why don't u write an article on packing gift articles & the materials used to pack.
it will be of much use to ppl like me......

every where the post man is the same all around the world. but i got a different kind of post man who calls me if i'm not at home.
but i got to pay him for tht.
this helps me out tht i never miss any parcel & i get every letter in time.

he is friendly. we some times have a cup of tea or a nice chat for few min in the evening time ....when he comes home to deliver the package after his working hrs.

it is always fun to wait for a letter/pacakage from some one whom we luv the most.....

Regards & Best Wishes,
Luv,
Raghav.

Mariuca December 04, 2007 9:14 PM

Hi Janice! Actually GK oredi knows what it is he he... and yeah, it does make a nice Liverpool collectible! :):):)

Mariuca December 04, 2007 9:17 PM

Ha ha ha, thanks Raghav! The wrapping was poor by my standard cause I'm usually a pretty good wrapper. When I was studying in the States, I worked at the uni library and my job was to pack all the books, mags, journals etc to be shipped to other unis. So that's how I acquired the "skill" LOL!

Wrapping Nick's gift was somehow so difficult, I couldn't get it right at all! ;)

Mariuca December 04, 2007 9:30 PM

He he LJ! Don be jeles... my next contest coming soon, make sure u win that one k! ;)

Mariuca December 04, 2007 9:33 PM

Emila! I'd be happy too if I were to get a cool Mariuca Mug created by you! :):):)

Adrian December 04, 2007 10:37 PM

Alakazam! Whoa there little carpet! Did someone say present? I was out over the atlantic ocean on my way to grant some wishes when a little bird told me that i had a pressie all nice and wrapped up under the Marzie tree!!

Soon as I finished granting those wishes I rushed over here! Wow B is a great guy and you too GP!! A Christmas pressie for old GK is really a wonderful way to make agenie happy! ho ho ho!!

I shall keep it under the tree in the true spirit of Christmas and open it on Christmas morning!

Ooooohhh I can't wait to see whats inside! I know whats inside but how it looks will still be a surprise!!! Just hope you didn't send me the mug and Nick the scarf...LOL I'd use the mug but the Liverpool gift would be held to ransom I bet LOL

Nick good buddy! Enjoy your mug while you can...come Christmas day it might go missing hehehe

Marzie and B!! You're simply terrific!!

Long Live Liverpool!!

Mariuca December 05, 2007 2:47 AM

GK! So cute that you're gonna wait till Christmas to open it LOL!

No worries about the scarf, B was more than happy to get it for you. Spreading the Liverpool love it seems! Enjoy ur pressie and Merry Christmas!!

Nick Phillips December 07, 2007 3:13 PM

How come his package arrives before mine? There is still no sign of that darned pesky postman yet. I'm beginning to think he's run off with it!

You're just jealous you didn't get mug now aren't you, buddy? Come on, admit it, we've been friends for years now. Don't be ashamed. I'll let you look at it for 2 or 3 seconds ... LOL!

Yeah, Marzie, what squabbles? That's how good OLD dung for brains and me always converse ... :D

Mariuca December 07, 2007 7:10 PM

Adrian & Nick ...LOL!!! I'm loving your conversation!

GK, at least you'll get to take a look at Nick's mug for 2-3 secs mah, better than nothing ha ha ha...

Nick, still no parcel yet? How come la like this? I hope it gets there soon! :)
