Who Won the Mariuca CNY Mug?

Hi guys, it's time to announce the winner for my Mariuca CNY Mug Contest! As always, I had a difficult time picking my winner as some of you really put in effort to give me the best reason as to why you love Mariuca. It took me several nights to pick the best answer for this contest and at long last, I am ready to unveil my winner!

Before that, I'll be doing my usual round of thanks to the participants of this contest and they are Raghav, Jamilla, Fida, Bharat, Aggie & LJ and last but not least Adrian! Although I received many comments for this contest, the actual entries received were by these 6 bloggers, so thanks so much for taking part peeps! I also want to say thanks to Emila, the creator of this lovely Mariuca CNY Mug. :)

And now, let me call upon my faithful fluffy assistant, Phoebe to help me with the mug giving ceremony. I had the most difficult time getting her to stay put for this picture by the way! Okay, here goes... I am so happy to announce that my winner for the Mariuca CNY Mug Contest is none other than Adrian a.k.a. Genie King! Congratulations to GK on a well deserved win and I hope you'll enjoy your lovely Mariuca Mug!:)

Despite being the last one received, Adrian's entry caught my attention the most. His entry was based on the theme for the TV sitcom Cheers, which I used to love watching too! According to Adrian, Mariuca's blog reminds him of that happy bar in Boston and makes him feel the same way! I love the idea of my blog making someone else happy. In fact, my good buddy Zue (Hi Hang! Having fun at your new job?), recently told me that she visits my blog whenever she's feeling down and it always cheers her up! I thought Adrian's answer was most fitting to win this beautiful Mariuca CNY Mug as the main intent of my blog is to ultimately bring about love, joy and happiness for my readers and me! So congratulations again Adrian and since I love your entry so much, I will feature it here for everyone to see! :)

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.

if you want to give me any thing.....then give me a cup......& i'll participate in any competation where in you will be giving away cup...not any other thing....whether the thing may be expensive than this cup.....i don't want it then also......
i was never fasinated with any cup...till date...i have purchased....collected many cups & broken many cups....but tht cup of yours.....impressed me the most......
tht is why running behind the cup.....each & every time u put.....some competation....

tht's it.....
