Who Wants a Mariuca CNY Mug?

I bet you thought I forgot all about Chinese New Year when I didn't have a post here to wish all my friends a Gong Xi Fa Cai. I apologize for that and the truth is, I was busy planning a new Mariuca Mug Contest for my wonderful Mariucans. Of course, I could not let this prosperous 2008 go by without having a Mariuca CNY Mug contest, that would be so wrong! ;)

So Happy Chinese New Year once again to all my readers and now, feast your eyes on this awesome, red hot Mariuca CNY Mug. I love the red highlights in Mariuca's hair and check out the lovely cheongsam I'm wearing! If previously the Mariuca Halloween Mug was my personal favourite, this Mariuca CNY Mug has now taken precedence; I absolutely LOVE this mug and red happens to be my favourite colour too!

For this contest, I'd like to ask my readers and friends to do a very simple task. To be in the running for this Mariuca CNY Mug, all you have to do is tell me what you love most about Mariuca. You can send in as many entries as you wish and the person with the best entry will win this lucky Mariuca CNY Mug! I can't wait to see who will be enjoying this beautiful, shiny red mug so let's proceed to the rules below.


1. Leave a comment on this post with your entry. The person with the best entry on what they love most about Mariuca wins this adorable Mariuca CNY Mug!

2. Contest starts on Feb 23, 2008 – March 23, 2008.

3. Winner will be announced here on March 30, 2008.

4. International entries are allowed.

5. The contest is open to ALL Mariuca and Mariuca's Perfume Gallery members 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.

About the Mug

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

Have fun and GOOD LUCK! :)

Jamy February 27, 2008 3:59 PM

Hmm.. Red Mariuca Mugggg!!

What I love Mariuca the most is ...

She got alot of readers leaving many comments in every of her post ....

I always visit her blog but I seldom leave her the comment. I only leave comment on the post I feel like interested on it.

I was quite active in Blogging half year ago but now not so, seldom do bloghopping. Not much comments leaving in my post... Im not sure how many people actually read my blog regularly...

I just try to update my blog ...share what happening in my life ...blah blah blah!

I thought people forget me already because I seldom visit their blog, din leave a regularly comment in their new post ...they must be forgetten meeeee!

But this girl, Mariuca, still receive alot of readership from her readers, does not forget me! Still leave msg during my bday and other post.

Marzie, can I ask you something? How you manage your bloghopping a day and yet still get many readers' comment? Are you sure you visit every of their blog in a day?

Mariuca February 27, 2008 4:57 PM

Jamy!!! Yay, thanks so much for joining this contest too, love u la!

Anyway, of course must wish u a Happy Birthday, u celebrated my birthday last year and made it such a blast, so I couldn't possibly forget to wish u! :):)

PS. I can't afford to be bloghopping every single blog every day, too many la dear... so I just visit as many as I can in a day, throughout the week. :)

Fida Abbott February 28, 2008 10:42 PM

Hello Mariuca!!
I know your Blog through Emila's Blog. What a fun thing to participate in a giveaway contest in the blogosfer. Beside having a new friend, also we can express what we think about something (the object as the gift in a giveaway contest).

I love your mug! Why? You have the same favorite color like me: one of them is red and other colors those can match each other and so brighten. Your name will be a very great memory for the winner as your mug comes from and made from. The drawing of a girl face is a representative of you as the hosting and a creator of that sweet mug. So everytime the winner sees that mug, she/he will always remember you!!!!

I hope my honesty comment will steal your heart to consider me as the winner nominator.

Warm regard from Pennsylvania!!!
Fida Abbott

Mariuca February 29, 2008 10:45 PM

Hola Fida, welcome to Mariuca's blog! It's so great to have visitors from Emila's blog drop by my site. :)

Adrian March 15, 2008 2:49 PM

GP here is my's the tv sitcom Cheers theme because your blog reminds me of that happy bar in Boston and makes me fell the same way!

Making your way in the blog today
Takes everything you've got;
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?
All those nights when you've got no lights,
And can’t check your e- mail;
And your little angel
Hung the cat up by its tail;
And your broadband just won’t go;
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
You want to be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same;
You want to be where everybody knows your name.
Roll out of bed, the internet is dead;
The morning's looking a sight;
And you finally check your blog,
And have another assignment to write;
Then you read what’s wrong with the world;
Be glad there's Mariuca in the blogworld
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
You want to go where people know,
People are all the same;
You want to go where everybody knows your name.
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;
Where everybody knows your name,
And they're always glad you came;

Cheers GP! LOL

Mariuca March 16, 2008 1:08 AM
