Sweet Surprise!

I received a wonderfully sweet surprise last week. I was happily blogsurfing while playing Triumph at the same time, when the doorbell rang. It was the postman with a package for me. The first thought that entered my mind as I was signing for the package was that it had to be a credit card renewal. I wasn't expecting anything from anyone, most definitely not a cheque, so it had to be a credit card.

I was however pleasantly surprised when I saw the sender's information and it was actually a little something from my blog buddy, Jean Chia! As some of you already know, Jean has been MIA from the Blogworld for quite some time. She is still settling into her new home and is currently without Internet connection. Even then, she tries her best to drop by my blog when she's at work or we keep in touch via Facebook. I totally didn't expect to get another souvenir from her, especially since she had already given me one before this! I ripped the package open excitedly to see a beautiful pink coin purse she got me from her recent trip to Bangkok! How lovely of her to think of me even though she was away for a biz trip and not pure pleasure. And how even more thoughtful of her to remember that pink is one of my favorite colors! Thanks so much Miss Yummylicious & Martin, I love the purse and it shall be a very sweet reminder of my special friend here in the Blogworld! :)





I'm truly happy to have Jean as one of my best blog buddies. She is really one caring and sweet friend, more than I could have hoped for when I first started venturing into the world of
blogging. So on that note, I would like to dedicate this Friendship Meme to Jean! I was tagged with this meme by NAFASg and have been waiting for the perfect friendship moment to post the meme. Sorry for the delay NAFA, don't get mad with GP ok? ;)

For this very special Friendship Meme, I'd like to tag some of my closest blog buddies. I just want to say thanks to everyone for being so great and Mariuca loves ya!

Zubli, my very first MBL friend, who's also my BFF and the jester who cracks me up!
Emila, my ex colleague, blog buddy & favorite artist. I'm blessed to have her as an
offline friend as well.
Bobby, my sensitive and generous friend who just yesterday gave me a wonderful Entrecard welcome gift, yay!
Nick, my funny friend, who's remained supportive despite the immense success his blog is savoring now.
Adrian, my understanding Genie King, who's always so jolly. He always cheers me up whenever I'm down.
Nessa, my fun & friendly friend who shares my passion for PC games and reality TV programs.
Erisha, my cute and happening friend, who keeps me entertained with her young, wild and free posts!
Jean, my sweetest friend ever, who's always so thoughtful. Her comments always make me smile.
Janice, my loving Supermom friend, who is also Mariuca's Perfume Gallery # 1 Fan!
FL Sam, my cool buddy who loves GP enough not to get mad with me for calling him Uncle Sam! ;)
Bokjae, my trusty buddy and FB friend, who always comes up with some very well-written posts.
LJ, my cool & helpful midnight buddy, who shares my love for cats, B&B, making money online and spicy food!
Raghav, my long distance friend from India, who visits me often and never fails to leave me comments.
Jesse, my wonderful "Phoebe fan", who's also the first Mariuca Mug winner and my favorite Scramble buddy on FB!

Emm 30 plus altogether, I think, and more to come. Yes, even if I do not come from Bangkok with pink coin purse for Phoebe. Okay, I go and post now. If you do not see one, next year perhaps.

Zubli Zainordin April 14, 2008 11:19 AM

Mariuca April 14, 2008 6:41 PM

Yay, Jean is here! Thanks again for the pressie woman, I love it a lot! Sayang want to use he he... And of course I couldn't leave you out of this tag, you've been missing out on some good ones lately, and this one is a must for Friendship! :):):)

Mariuca April 14, 2008 6:43 PM

He he, no worries Nick! Ala, modest it seems, your blog is doing very, very well since we first started blogging, which was more or less around the same time right? Now, you have tons of readers and comments and I'm happy to be a part of it! :):):)

Zubli Zainordin April 15, 2008 8:36 AM

Yes, Master and Phoebe are always welcome at A Total Blog, or pass all gates, and whether on lap or not, in any weather, there is hazel nuts kachang for the three of us. Yes, ini kacang bukan lupakan kulit one. Any extra, one can take home by putting in pink coin purse. For those who got one lah. I no got yet. Hahahahahaha!

Mariuca April 15, 2008 1:13 PM

Ha ha ha! Zubli, I tak suka nuts sebenarnye he he...except for pistachios and walnuts. Hazel nut tak main la he he!! Lain la kalau u kasi I dalam pink purse baru he he!! :):):)

Zubli Zainordin April 15, 2008 1:43 PM

Nuts!!! Take it from one who has been awarded Nutty by PurpleFrogCat. Furthermore, the Chinese beliefs, hazelnut, good for bloggers' brain!!! Then, Phoebe should know who are the bloggers without hazelnut eating. Hahahahaha! On my laps now, I got Pistachios and Walnuts (not Wallnusts, okay) I bought from 7 Eleven a moment ago in tins. Please come back to where you both were before. Lap lah kan? LOL!!! Okay, I am not able to buy you pink coin purse. Yet, when I go to Bangkok, yes, Bangkok Bank, soon, I shall find pink dollar purse. Besar sikit! Inside, you can put Pistachios and Walnuts. Phoebe, cannot fit in it lah. LOL!!!

Mariuca April 15, 2008 2:00 PM

Zubli!! Like that, might as well u get a pink cat carrier instead of purse, confirm Phoebe datang kat blog u every time dalam bag carrier tu lolz... I baru je kasi u pressie kat FB, suka tak? ;)

Zubli Zainordin April 15, 2008 2:16 PM

For getting, not forgetting okay, yes, for getting a prizee for Phoebe, let me see, what's actually sold at Bangkok, yes Bangkok Bank. Soon. Oh, got pressie for me ah at FaceBook, wow! Then, I do not have to wait for any postman to ring ma bell. I got one already and I'll go and check in a moment from now. Well, what can it be? Possibly, not a Phoebe. Well, what can be better than a pink coin purse. I need a purse, actually, to suit my long hair now. LOL!!!

Mariuca April 15, 2008 2:26 PM

Ah tu la, I kasi u something kat Friends for sale, since u've been a good pet he he...semenjak bila rambut u panjang?! ;)

Zubli Zainordin April 15, 2008 3:18 PM

Hair? I have been short hair most of the time, after the hippy days. Then, at 50th Birthday, in search of global total peace, and personal wisdom, suddenly...no hair cut. Apart from hair on head, moustache and beard too. See pictures - still and slides here...http://atotalblog.wordpress.com/2008/04/13/the-chair-19/
Longer soon. Hehehehehehe. When I do cutted this hair, donno when, I need a pink purse from Bangkok, okay bloggers of the world. LOL!!! Else, where to put my hair eh?

Mariuca April 15, 2008 3:32 PM

I wonder who will be the first to give you a pink purse Zubli! Okay, I nak pi tengok gamabr u rambut panjang ni, hopefully no major surprises! ;)

Zubli Zainordin April 15, 2008 4:58 PM

Well, the pink purse from Bangkok, and not Bangkok Bank okay, is for my hair if and when I cutted it, else, I can put Pistachios, Walnut, or Hazelnut (nut so popular here at perfumery gallery, eh?) Okay, the pictures you see is when I have oiled or wetted em. At home, when dried and looked from the back, I deserve a purse of a beg. LOL!!!

Mariuca April 15, 2008 5:19 PM

Ohhh takde la the pictures? I dare u put a picture of u with long hair at your blog Zubli! Apa kata? Pegang pink purse lagi ha ha ha... :)

Zubli Zainordin April 15, 2008 7:48 PM

The Malays normally say, *Saya pantang dicabar* Hiayah, gua Chinese Man maa, *Saya talak belanak, macam manier nak pantang, atau pantang dicabar?* I have putted the photo of the long hair one, just for the Genie Princess Mesra Marzie Marvelous Mariuca, here: http://atotalblog.wordpress.com/2008/04/13/the-chair-19/
and at FaceBook only you got a funwall picture of me. http://apps.facebook.com/crazyfunpix/?pxciid=TeBwlL3V-PquWhDPJ5WZzxZvjswETTwKtoa8UrIhvCg3Pg8tKmZcA1XzJoVsQSWF&previous_view=FB_PROFILE_FEED_BODY_S&app=funpix&ref=feed_pic&se=GfBPYSsPIPc0V-CmLlieAIBgEZpWGOVT2K1t9vNI48zMmPxhZeywZ3v1JPsj4iCoaCJOdBbxDDnKTapU6bMYdvYZ9YY3VM4DCx6cL9QKXns&view=526071232
Lihat misai sama janggut aah, kita China Olang ada kulang ini. Phoebe manyak kot! solli aah pink purse no got yet, else, talak pantang pun gua talok jugak itu maciam punya gambar. LOL!!!

Mariuca April 15, 2008 9:00 PM

LOL! I knew you'd take me up on the challenge, can't wait to see Zubli rambut panjang! ;)

Zubli Zainordin April 16, 2008 1:28 PM

A Dream come true next, while wishing on a falling star, is long hair and Bangkok pink purse pictures soon. Hahahahahahaha!

Zubli Zainordin April 16, 2008 4:04 PM

Finally. Yes, after flying around from Bangkok to Bangkok Bank, Uncle finally founded an almost pink karer bag for Phoebe. To get it, ask Master to go somewhere near her Facebook. *Zubli is browsing bags on My Fab Bag. Go Shopping!
3:44pm
Check out the new bag of the day!

Zubli added the My Fab Bag application.
3:44pm*
It is a nice bag that cost not so much, sorry, Uncle got it at a discountedness because Uncle long hair. Enjoyz!!

Jean Chia April 16, 2008 5:25 PM

yay!! for friendship, marzie!! *toast*

http://agreatpleasure.blogspot.com/2008/04/friendship-meme.html

Mariuca April 16, 2008 10:40 PM

Alamak, thank you la Zubli! Phoebe loves her new carrier, now she will be comfy every time I bring her to visit ur blog he he! MEOW! :)

Mariuca April 16, 2008 10:42 PM

Hey Jean, thanks for doing the tag! I'll be right over sweetie! :)

Zubli Zainordin April 17, 2008 10:27 AM

The carrier produces music only I can here, as you both get closest to A Total Blog, your avatar will appear at the MyBlogLog widget, so I know you have arrived. A signal will alert Bangkok Bank, of course, with a note, Bag, Master, and Cat, at Zubli Zainordin's blog. Canggih teknologi ini. LOL!!! Cuma tak boleh bersin, kalau bersin, terpadamlah encryption code nya, jadinya siapa pun tak tahu you both sampai kat my blog. Adeh! Hahahahahaha!!!

Mariuca April 17, 2008 6:30 PM

Oh yeah, must join A Total Blog punya neighborhood, hang on ye...

I tgh tunggu u approve my EC ad kat ur blog ni, takde pun!

Zubli Zainordin April 17, 2008 6:44 PM

Hehehehehe! No hang or hanging please. Just be there, I shall too, like Freddie Fenders said, before the tears drop fall. I am in a row of wonderful moments exploring and penetrating Facebook, a lots of clicking so much so, I am not doing the other bits of blogging passion. At EC, I am one of the most prolific in responding. (wink!;) Soon...

Zubli Zainordin April 17, 2008 6:51 PM

EntreCard? Done with much feeling of BFF, much sweeter than the surprise, and more colorful than pink. LOL!!! Please allow some moments before these your cards' appearances, many cards are in line. Free gamaknya, ramai minat letak di A Total Blog Twin.

Mariuca April 18, 2008 3:39 AM

Yay, thank you Zubli! I can't wait to see my pretty pink ad at ur blog. Wah, semakin wangi la blog u nanti! ;)

Zubli Zainordin April 18, 2008 7:10 AM

You are welcome to pink my A Total Blog Twin, dear BFF the Genie Princess Mesra Marzie Marvelous Mariuca. Simply nice. I have raised the widget from bottom to top left so I can see it. Well, others too. I have yet to study this EntreCard. What you know?

Zubli Zainordin April 18, 2008 7:12 AM

Thanks for the song dedication at Facebook by Jordon Sparks, No Air. I did a mouth-to-mouth ressusitation a long time ago, I do hope to see her and give some of my air. I have a lot!

Zubli Zainordin April 18, 2008 8:06 AM

I can understand residing in a city with a population of two. But being in jail? Bangkok Bank!

Mariuca April 18, 2008 5:27 PM

Zubli! You add la more citizens to ur city and add to my Spectra sekali! Tak best la 2 citizens only, apa citer? Ha ha ha....

Oh best tak lagu tu? You dengar ke u baca je title dia? ;)

Wah, best la EC, you tak aktif ke? I'm happy u decided to bring up ur widget, baru org nampak! I'll check it out now! :):):)

Zubli Zainordin April 18, 2008 5:37 PM

01. Dearest the Genie Princess Mesra Marzie Marvelous Mariuca, apa cerita? Well, in our city, there is no JAWI. Only RUMI. So, how to add people or individual, or group, in our City? I only choose one with pink coin purse given from Bangkok, who Master a cat. That is the criteria. LOL!!!
02. Oooo I was not able to hear the song at Facebook, so I went to You Tube, I heard her, No Air. She should have asked me, I have a lot. LOL!!!
03. EC? Do you know the top ten technical dummy in this bloggosphere? I am one. I do not know how to buy, I just sell. Soon, my points can go up to a million. I must buy now, but how? How did you do it? Please do tell me.

Mariuca April 18, 2008 5:52 PM

He he, tapi ur citizens sekarang ni lonely!! Dia nak kawan, nak bling bling rapper which can only happen if u start adding more citizens he he!!

Kalau nak dgr lagu tu, dtg kat blog I ok soince I'm featuring it here at my Imeem! :)

Ha? U tak tau beli-membeli? Senang je, I'll send u a FB msg hang on... ;)

Zubli Zainordin April 18, 2008 5:59 PM

Well, until and unless each member at Facebook has a pink coin purse from Bangkok and a cat, else, for the moment, we bling each other with coins at our city.
I heard she got Tattoo. I have seen em yet. Okay, let me buy at EC.

Mariuca April 18, 2008 9:36 PM

Oh yeah! I saw the tattoo, woo hoo!!! Too bad u tak leh tengok Zubli he he he!! :)

Zubli Zainordin April 18, 2008 9:40 PM

I wish upon a falling star, then this is a miracle, she is coming to our city, to sing No Air, and show me her tattoo. Since, I do not have a tattoo yet, she can dribble my tahi lalat di pipi. Then, I shall gif her yalot of yair! Kesian Phoebe. LOL!!!
