Mariuca Has a Winner!

Hola, I am back from my vacation and the first thing I did on my way home from the airport, was to check my email using my phone. I was so excited to see who my winner was LOL! And I'm happy to say that we already have a winner so YAY! It was really hard to keep this little secret from my closest friends while I was planning this vacation but it wouldn't be a surprise contest if I had told anybody would it?

Thank you very much for your enthusiastic participation this time around, I really did have
so much fun with you guys this contest! Everyone was so cool, and I tried to make it as easy as possible with those hints. So I'm really happy to see most of you got the answer right, which is BANDUNG, Indonesia by the way! I also had the best time reading your comments and it was totally awesome to see Emila, LJ, Jean, Rizal, Sushi, Roxy, Nick & ECL trying their luck at both Mariuca and MPG ha ha ha! That was so cute of you guys LOL!

I'll write a separate post on my trip, this post is to announce my winner for my contest, so are you ready? Here goes ... my winner for the Where is Mariuca? Contest is none other than my Top Mariucan for June - LadyJava! I guess all that commenting and being first to comment really paid off so congrats to LJ for winning one of my contests for the first time LOL! You will be receiving a special souvenir all the way from Bandung, Indonesia, enjoy your win! :)

AND there's more! I've decided to throw in a little something, a consolation prize if you will, for the runner-up of this contest - the second person to leave a comment with the right answer and that person is ... Emila! So you will be getting a little something from Mariuca too, congrats! For those of you who did not win, don't forget how much I love having my contests, so there will be more goodies coming your way. Thank you again to everyone who participated in my contest. I had a blast and hope you did too!

I also thought it would be fun to see how many different responses I received for this question, so let's check out the breakdown below, shall we?

Bandung, Indonesia (22)
A pat on the back for LJ, Emila, Bono, Jean, Sushi, Nihal, Mantiz, Maiylah, Jennifer,
Nick, Rizal, Debbie, Roxy, Farah (no way you could get this one wrong!), Pink Lemonade, Tammy, Daisy, Filipino in Canada, Sheila, Tina, Adrian & Ruby for getting the answer absolutely right!

Thailand (1)

Singapore (2)

Vietnam (2)
Bobby & Bokjae

Hong Kong (1)

Guangzhou (1)
Kim (
Very interesting choice he he!)

Hawaii (1)
Cindi (Awesome destination, anyone care to sponsor me a trip there?)

Didn't win the Where Is Mariuca? contest here? Check to see if you're a winner over at Mariuca's Perfume Gallery! ;)

Sushi July 22, 2008 4:20 AM

I'm happy you stopped by to have a bite! Today I tried a new twist to it by substituting the cocoa powder for hazelnut coffee mate. It worked and tasted yummy too :)

Mom Knows Everything July 22, 2008 4:26 AM

Easy come, easy go...even if I don't make the list, you know I'm one of your top EntreCard droppers if I get credit for adding them all to drop off Roxiticus Best Blogs before bedtime.


Mariuca July 22, 2008 2:04 PM

Tammy! You did get it right, I was impressed he he! Great job and looking forward to having you take part in my next contest! :):):)

Mariuca July 22, 2008 2:04 PM

Sushi, thank you for inviting ME! I really love the idea of not having to use an oven to make that cake, since I don't have an oven in da kitchen he he! And the way the cake just crumbled cause it was too fluffy (like you!) all sounds so heavenly yummy! :):):)

Mariuca July 22, 2008 2:05 PM

Ha ha ha, but HK was a good try ECL! I had fun imagining HK as my destination lolz... Happy Tuesday! :):):)

Mariuca July 22, 2008 2:06 PM

YAY! Three claps for Ruby for getting it right and your entry was the last one in too he he! :):):)

Mariuca July 22, 2008 2:08 PM

Roxy!! This was what I wanted to tell you yesterday but forgot to include in my comment... that even though you've been bumped off my Top 10 EC List, you now have 2 blogs on my Top Mariucans list so that's totally awesome! Thanks so much for all ur drops and comments, GP loves Roxy! :):):)

Hi GP!!!
Here with LJL!! Just starting my rounds.. though have to stop a while for dinner lahh..

Anonymous,  July 22, 2008 8:29 PM

Ooh, just look at me up there, shining like a star as your #3 EntreCard dropper!

I'm heading out to take the girls to camp, but wanted to let you know I've just entered Roxiticus Best Blogs in its first ever Battle of the Blogs...big promote for our pal SpicyBug!


Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious July 22, 2008 8:43 PM

hi marzie, i've got something for you at my place! Come quick, dearie! :)

Rozella July 22, 2008 9:25 PM

Congrats to LadyJava and welcome back! :)

eastcoastlife July 23, 2008 12:28 AM

HK is very good for shopping and if you have time, drop over to Shenzhen (cheap cheap cheap) and Macau.

aiyahhhh... I wish I could go horniday....

Bobby Revell July 23, 2008 1:54 AM

Congratulation to the winners! I should have done more research to get the answer right. Hey, at least I learned something new! I took a few days off from blogging after fixing my site because I was a little burned out. I am feeling good and am back. Have a great day Marzie:)

Sushi July 23, 2008 2:34 AM

Hi Marzie, when you make your cake, don't wait to long to eat it because after a while it loses the fluffiness and moisture. Mommy ate the first one as soon as she removed from the MW oven but the second one(hazelnut)she ate a few hours later and uh-oh tasted good but didn't feel(chew)as good. That was the test!

Anonymous,  July 23, 2008 11:10 AM

Hola Mariuca...just got your comment that you are still on your rounds. Hope it's cuz life got in the way rather than a ridiculously slow Internet connection for you today.

I don't know what you mean about the new picture on my post, maybe it wasn't loading before? Anyway, I've got a new post with a cool photo I took with my new camera tonight, guessed it, I'm in a Battle of the Blogs, so please stop by if you get a chance.

I see I keep moving around in your EntreCard top droppers...I'm sleepy but I'm going to try to stay up until midnight just to see if I can lock in my position here!


Farah Deen July 23, 2008 2:18 PM

hahahaah I am right, and I bet you had a blast of a time there too! Did a lot of shopping? or maybe, you are already planning on the next trip to Bandung? :) I know my family will! LOL LOL

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious July 23, 2008 6:39 PM

oh, it was really fun because if i cant win at mariuca, i can try at MPG. :) hehe, im cunning rite! :P

Trinity July 23, 2008 6:44 PM

WHHHAAAT?!?!?! YOU VISIT BANDUNG??! ALREADY?? AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN TOLD MEEE??? Marzieeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how comeeeee!!!! How come we didn't meet!!!! whoaaaa *cried out loud*

bonoriau July 23, 2008 6:58 PM

Mariuca July 24, 2008 3:57 AM

Bobby! Thanks for congratulating my winners, you're such a great sport! And thanks for playing too, I hope u had fun. :):):)

Oh great news about your site, your sidebar looks really clean. No more chatbox too right?

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:00 AM

MEOW Sushi! Oh don't worry about that, when I make my cake, I'd want to eat it while it's still fresh and fluffy from the oven...errr microwave in this case LOL! Thanks for the tip! :):):)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:11 AM

Hi Roxy, nice to see u back here! Oh I voted for this battle too and you WON! :)

Oh I think you're right...the pic didn't appear on your post when I last commented on it. My connection was sucky to da max during the day but now that it's night time, it seems to be working just fine! :):):)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:15 AM

Ha ha Farah!! I almost wanted to link to ur Bandung post as one of the clues, but that would've been way too easy he he!!

I did some shopping, but was a bit disappointed that there was no VS stuff around. ;)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:22 AM

Jean! I was hoping you'd do that, wanted to give you and all my other friends more opportunities to win mah he he! Clever Jean! :):):)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:29 AM

TRIN!!!!!!!!! I'm so sorry dearie, don't be angry with GP! :(:(:(

Actually, B did most of the planning cause I was really busy with work that time. All last minute one and then I decided to have the surprise contest. Also last minute but I did remind myself to leave u a msg right before my flight, but it totally slipped my mind in all the haste!! Also scared to impose on you dearie, but anyway I'm truly sorry I didn't remember! :(:(:( Forgive me?!!!

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:31 AM

Eh eh mana ada pakatan Rakyat kat sini Bono? He he he... Wah, I masih maintain your Top 10 Droppers yeah? Shall try my best to remain there this month too! ;)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:39 AM

Tina! Congrats for getting the answer right, am impressed with you too he he! Oh the pics will definitely come, just a matter of when. ;)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:46 AM

Roxy! I'm sorry I missed your battle and it's a triple digit one too! :(

Couldn't vote for your froggies, was out when ur comment came in. Hope ur froggies did u proud though. ;)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 4:49 AM

Hi Shemah, great to see u here today dear! :)

Ha ha ha, tu la... it was all last minute and I was too busy with work to really prepare for the vakasi...but at least I went on one yeah? How about your trip with Syura? When is that going to happen? ;)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 5:23 AM

Good evening LJ! Let's see... 9.22am just now, I was still asleep! Happily dreaming of Boldie lolz...

Wah nasi lemak with sotong, best tu! Because of Debbie and her lemak asam, I feel like having masakan Melayu today, so having ikan lemak cili padi for dinner YUMMY!

Mariuca July 24, 2008 7:14 PM

Hi Bobby! Yeah Bokjae also put down Vietnam as his answer, the 2 Bs he he! Oh and it's UNCLE Bokjae, not Aunty Bokjae lolz... ;)

Boo hoo, froggies lost many Battles of the Blogs, not many BE credits left...but thanks to loads of comments and advice, the girls and I have decided that frogs will not be living with us here in the Roxiticus Valley. Stop by if you can, I'm battling on and on...


Anonymous,  July 24, 2008 11:17 PM

Easy come, easy go...from number three Mariucan EC dropper to off the list...I'm not even going to look anymore, but I will focus on keeping two blogs in your top 10 commenters.


Mariuca July 24, 2008 11:44 PM

Thank you LJ. Hope to hear from her soon. Thanks for coming by with LJL tonight dearie! :)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 11:49 PM

Wah new blog ah Jean?? I shall definitely visit Glossa-licious, thanks for inviting me dear! Glad it's also on EC now, makes it easier for me to visit. :)

Mariuca July 24, 2008 11:54 PM

Oh ha ha ha, Roxy you are adorable! Too bad abt froggies losing many battles but am glad to hear they won't be living with you LOL!

I managed to get in the last vote, that was a damn speedy one wasn't it? Oh and having 2 Roxys on my TM list sounds superb, so happy commenting! :):):)

Ryan Hidajat July 25, 2008 12:46 AM

Anonymous,  July 25, 2008 1:23 AM

Thanks for your vote Genie Princess, but poor Bay Head Blog lost. Now I've got more froggies (and lots of linky love for my commenters) up against Stik and his cows and Batman grass...


Anonymous,  July 25, 2008 2:18 AM

marzie, it's 2.48am now and i am still awake. You know why? because i just had iced latte just now around 10.30pm. The caffeine is kicking in lar!! I need to force myself to sleep. Maybe i'll ask martin to sing lullaby to me. haha!

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious July 25, 2008 2:51 AM

Almost the weekend...that means almost a week since your vacation getaway, and inquiring minds are growing impatient for a post and pictures...

Mariuca July 25, 2008 2:04 PM

Hola MXY (gonna call u this for short okay?)! I understand a little bit of Indonesian so happily spoke Indonesian in Bandung LOL! You can of course use English here if it's easier for u. Happy weekend! :):):)

Mariuca July 25, 2008 2:16 PM

Hola Roxy and BHB! :)

Sorry u lost the first battle Roxy, but u won the one against Stik right? ;)

I've not been battling for ages, perhaps with my upcoming Bandung post. It's Friday here, so happy weekend to u and me lolz!

Mariuca July 25, 2008 2:52 PM

Jean, so how many blogs u have now? 2 or 3?? Eh u mentioned Martin has a blog too, but he is not active in any programs or communities? Would be cool to see you and Martin blogging away together in the blogworld! :)

LJ finally made it to my Top 10 EC list after almost a month of trying he he! Must drop every day one, I wonder if I'm on ur list Jean! :):):)

Mariuca July 25, 2008 2:58 PM

Hello Speedy Gonzalez!! So happy to see u here today, thanks for the drop! ;)

Mariuca July 25, 2008 3:04 PM

Hello again Roxy and BHB, love seeing ur different blogs in my comment box! ;)

Thanks for all the drops and one Bandung post coming up really soon! Gotta go through the pics and choose the best ones. :):):)

Mariuca July 25, 2008 3:15 PM

Hi Gadis! Thanks for stopping by and hope u'll get to catch my next contest! :)

eastcoastlife July 25, 2008 4:05 PM

No, no.. I'm not angry with you! I don't think Trinity is angry with you too. Disappointed maybe.

I know Indonesians are very hospitable people. If I go to Indonesia and don't inform my Indonesian friends or stay a few days with them, they feel embarrassed.

To us, we don't want to give them too much inconvenient but they are just so warm and welcoming. Must
give them some face.

Nessa July 25, 2008 4:38 PM

Laa, I didn't even know you went on a vacation. Welcome back! :) I missed this one. Oh well, I'll try the next one, there is another contest right??

Congrats to the winner! :)

Friday night for me, and you're well into your weekend beauty rest I bet...

We're down at the beach for the weekend, Saturday is supposed to be nice and sunny. Lots going on...tonight we had that reception at the local art gallery for our Mermaid Swim Team, Sunday another neighboring artist's reception.

Unfortunately our next-door neighbor is renting her cottage to trailer trash for the past week, and maybe next week, too...way too many people packed into a small house, cigar smoke floating over to our porch during dinnertime...all I can say is "eew."

We'll have to stay out at the beach all day and night!


Trinity July 26, 2008 11:17 AM

:-) I am not angry with you.. I just feel disappointed not being able to meet you becoz I wanna meet you so much!

Pictures coming soon to a Mariuca near me, too? Then I can Make It A Mariuca Night!

Dropping off Bay Head Blog before heading off to the Bay Head Beach! What a perfect summer day. I was reminded by the trailer trash this morning and your response to my comment how lucky I am to have a beach house with good neighbors...I guess I can make it through another weekend with her hideous renters.


Anonymous,  July 26, 2008 11:19 PM

I have more blogiversary celebration stories at RDH today if you get the chance to stop by...I would love it if you have a special post or two back from when you started Mariuca (and MPG) that really tell your story, leave me a link on Roxiticus Best Blogs. Don't forget, start with "Once Upon A Time..."

Yeah, martin has a blog too but he's not into any communities! he's only using his blog as a personal photo album. :)

Yeah, it would be so cool to blog together like Syura & Rafiq. :) But too bad lar coz martin doesn't blog.

wah, really ar!! okok, i'll try to drop every for a month and see if i canmake it to your list. And yes, of coz, you're on my top 10. :) Speaking of that, thanks for yr support! :)

Mariuca July 28, 2008 2:12 AM

Ha ha ha, thank you Roxy! I do love the sound of Mariuca night lol! I finally got my post up, put off work for a bit to get some blogging done.

I do have a story for MPG I believe, but not too sure for Mariuca. I'll drop by ur blog to leave my link, thanks dear! :):):)

Mariuca July 28, 2008 3:04 AM

LJ, I'm here! Just feeling a bit under the weather, I need another vakasi he he! :)

Mariuca July 28, 2008 3:07 AM

Ha ha ha Roshill!! Of course I gotta work, how else to pay for those vacations yeah? LOL! I'm in Malaysia, working as a freelance copywriter, from home. What do u do? :)

Mariuca July 28, 2008 3:10 AM

Bono! I saw the ads coming in when I was at ur blog, thanks so much for advertising on both my blogs woo hoo! :):):)

Mariuca July 28, 2008 3:15 AM

Wah, good luck woman! 3 blogs is a handful, bloggers are so busy nowadays kan? Juggling work with blogging. I think 2 blogs is all I can handle for now. :)

Yeah! LJ made it back to my Top 10 after dropping daily for a month or so he he! I am on ur Top 10 list?? Woo hoo, must continue to drop on AGP then. :):):)

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious July 29, 2008 1:53 AM

Mariuca July 29, 2008 6:38 AM

Oh thanks sweetie!! Must work hard to keep our blogs alive! And thank you for being one of my greatest supporters, love ya and AGP! :):):)

NafaSg August 02, 2008 3:17 PM

Haha! Yeah we know u came to Singapore before. But now there is a new shopping center called Vivocity. U should go check it out if u happen to come over again! =)

Saw your pics already and we felt so sorry to hear that u were not well, but still, we believe u had fun right? And the pics looked beautiful. Bandung is a really beautiful place to chill, shop and dine. And yes, stewardess Nafa went there before! But not Lady Nafa. We are hoping that all of us can go there together as a group. =)=)=)

Mariuca August 03, 2008 2:42 PM

Wah!! New shopping centre it seems!! That sounds cool NAFA, I did have such a nice time in Sing. The fact that I also went on a huge perfume shopping spree in Sing adds to my joy there he he! :)

I hope u guys get to go to Bandung as a group, that ought to be fun since u guys are a close-knit bunch! Have a great Sunday guys and it was great to see u here today. :):):)

emilayusof September 28, 2008 4:49 PM

sedap tak durian ice cream tu, marzie?

Mariuca October 06, 2008 1:04 AM

Emila, B cakap sedap, I rasa sikit je cause got my sinus that day so nose blocked! Couldn't really taste it! :)

emilayusof October 18, 2008 11:14 AM

wah best! nak makan durian ice-cream lah! i think the pakcik jual ais-krim-naik-motor-lalu-depan-rumah tu got that flavour...

emilayusof October 18, 2008 11:14 AM
