It's August and I'm Loving It!


August has been my favourite month for as long as I can recall. Firstly, it's my birthday month so putting aside my fears and insecurities at the thought of turning a year older; it is nonetheless a day that I look forward to. It is the one day that I am ordered (by B) to forget work and every other worry or stress currently plaguing me. Instead, I am expected to do whatever takes my fancy, without being reprimanded or having to clean up later! We usually go for a short getaway on my birthday and this year is no exception. Location undisclosed until further notice! ;)

What I also love about August is that our country's Independence Day falls on August 31, two days after my birthday. And this year it falls on a Sunday, which means we automatically get Monday off too. So since my birthday falls on a Friday this year (obviously I will be on leave that day), that's like a 4-day long weekend for me to enjoy with B! August has indeed put me in a jolly good mood and what better way to spread that joy than by handing out some linky love to my wonderful friends and readers!

Let's start with a special shout out to my Virgo buddies DD, Tina and Sushi, who will also celebrate their birthdays soon. It's no wonder I get along so well with these three, they're just like me in more ways than one! A special early birthday hug also goes out to Issy, my baby niece, another Virgo who will celebrate her first birthday in September. :)

And of course, I couldn't possibly bid farewell to July without thanking my Top 10 Mariucans! It was a busy month for me, and I mean really hectic. I was totally immersed in a huge tedious project, which I am happy to say, is almost over. Just tying up a few loose ends before I can finally close this job. In the meantime, I am about to start work on two other new jobs that came in this week so I foresee more busy days and nights for me in August. Your comments and visits last month however, helped me get through the busy month of July with ease. Whenever I was stressed out from work, your light banter and insightful comments here gave me the time-out I needed to break away from my dreary routine. I was really happy to see my loyal Mariucans diligently leaving their comments here; making sure they remain in my Top 10 Mariucans list. THANK YOU so very much to everybody who left comments for
Mariuca, and now...let's MAKE SOME NOISE for my Top 10 Mariucans! :)











Do stop by and say hello to my Top 10 Mariucans. Each blog is wonderfully unique, and all are authored by equally fantastic bloggers. Give them a visit and have fun making a new friend today! :)

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 07, 2008 6:15 AM

Ooh, a new post...could I be your first commenter?

It is good to see LadyJava is back to her usual self now that she's stopped tearing her hair out over the slow Internet...even if you added up Roxiticus Desperate Housewives (17 today) and Bay Head Blog (11 today), I couldn't beat LJ's midnight magic of 37 comments to be top dog. Or cat.

Thanks for all the linky love! It has been my pleasure to exchange comments with the lovely Mariuca all month.

Adrian August 07, 2008 8:23 AM

Good morning (or evening for you), Genie Princess!

Just stopping by before I get to work for half a day in Bay Head. My colleague, Brent, returns from 10 days in Hawaii today, so Rex and I will have to catch him up on all the deals we're working on. Then we'll hope to be off to the beach with the girls.

Roxy

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives August 07, 2008 7:16 PM

Mariuca,
It is exciting that August is your birthday month with a nice 4-day weekend for you...we'll have to do a countdown or something to keep it top of mind for everyone. Will there be another vacation contest on Mariuca and MPG?
Roxy

Imelda August 07, 2008 7:29 PM

Hi sis, advance happy b-day to you. Wow, more jobs? Take it easy girl, get a breather from it. Your body needs rest.

eastcoastlife August 07, 2008 10:34 PM

Another contest to guess where your getaway is!! *rubbing hands in glee*

Yippeee! Top 10 droppers again. :D Thanks for the linky love.

Great to be working hard eh.... but must learn to relax too. A holiday with your love sounds awesome!

Farah Deen August 08, 2008 12:56 AM

GP, wow, so, August is definitely a special month for you. hmmm another getaway sounds just perfect! plus, on your birthday- that's really a romantic gesture, don't you think? My hubby's birthday is on the 10th August, which is coming Sunday. time surely flies right, and before we know, we would be fasting and again another hari raya. hmmmm...enjoying life tough, like you said, despite getting a year older every year, life must go on!

Mariuca August 08, 2008 2:01 AM

Hello BHB and Roxy! Wow 10 days in Hawaii, now that's a dream vacation! I bet u guys have a lot of catching up to do, have fun! ;)

Oh yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to my long weekend. We'll most prob check into a hotel in town, so it's more of a short getaway somewhere nearby. But I'm happy to see your eagerness for more contests here and at MPG, you're da best Roxy! :):):)

Mariuca August 08, 2008 2:02 AM

Thank you Imelda and it's really nice to see u here today! I am trying to pace myself, just that it's been a busy two months or so for me, but things should slow down soon. Then I can catch up on my sleep and rest! ;)

Mariuca August 08, 2008 2:04 AM

ECL!!! You are so adorable la he he!! And YAY, you are still in my Top Mariucans list woo hoo! I hope to see u back here next month yeah?

Hi Shemah! As always, it's great to see u here at my blog. I hope ur connection is okay oredi?

Thanks so much for the early b'day wishes. I am still thinking where to go but usually, we just check-in to a hotel of my choice for my birthday weekend! So lokasi will pretty much be in KL la he he! :):):)

Mariuca August 09, 2008 12:41 PM

LJ!!! Oh I really wanted to bitch abt Boldie last night but u know la work comes first, terpaka memendam rasa he he!!

I pun menyampah to da max la aiyo!!! Btw, yesterday's one dah keluar ke? I waited the whole day tak de.

Back to K and N... I hate how she says that day on the island was ours and nobody can take it away from us. Hellooooooo, perasannye!! And stop meraba-ing ppl's hubby can or not??? And she is being so totally out of character by behaving normally throughout the whole thing, when she didn know she was prego!

Oh tell me abt B!Still wan to be goody-goody is it? Check up on K it seems, padahal she's oredi there menggataling with N! And yeah, saja je nak ask K to be godmother padahal, u don really see Jack and K being all that close anyway!! When she goes to visit, she spends her time flirting with N, mana ada jaga J? :(:(

Yeah, I oso thought they were gonna kill off her character oredi and Storm looke so silly in the water he he...like merman! Ha ha ha!!

Mariuca August 09, 2008 12:43 PM

Yay! Happy birthday to Singapore! Hope u have a good celebration today Janice! Will u be taking the boys to watch the parade? :):):)

Mariuca August 09, 2008 12:44 PM

Ha ha ha!!! I watched the opening ceremony last night Bono and it would have been cool to watch it kat sana kan? He he, maybe next time u can catch it live, after dah jadi billionaire! :):):)

LadyJava August 09, 2008 12:46 PM

GP!!! Good morning!!

No need ep for Boldie yet.. am waiting gak ni...

I know!! I want to bitch too.. I was like "ARRHHGHGHGH" menyampah to the max... betul you kata. dok meraba laki org.. yg laki org tu pun suka jer.. eeeeeee..I hate it when she said that day was theirs..and when N say.. there was love that day.. eeeeeee.. then what happened to his love for B on that island... now it made some sense to as why she say that it was ok for N to marry B that episode.. remember.. rupa nya dah sepancut..lolzz!!

Mariuca August 09, 2008 12:46 PM

He he he!! You are not greedy ECL, just eager mah he he! :)

I dunno what or if I'll be having a giveaway on my birthday. But if I do, most probably it won't be the Mariuca Mug anymore, difficult to make mah, so I gotta think of other things for my contests lor... ;)

Mariuca August 10, 2008 7:59 PM

Ha ha ha macam kekasih indeed Jean! LOL! But it's okay cause u are one of my BFFs, so the closer we are the better YAY!

I hope I can see ur pics today, or at FB. I was attacked by a virus yesterday so got no choice but to reformat AGAIN!!!! Good thing I stored most of my work files and pics in D drive, so only have to reinstall the apps. Haiya, leceh la like this, but at least that virus message is gone from my PC now! :):):)

Mariuca August 10, 2008 8:04 PM

YAY! My Virgo buddy is here! When exactly is ur birthday Tina? Any great birthday celebration? :)

I'll drop off the link to the code for u later tonight yeah! Can't have the RHD badge missing from ur blog now can we? ;)

Mariuca August 10, 2008 8:10 PM

Hello BHB and Roxy! Oh thanks so much for the vote last night but GP lost boo hoo hoo! He he, that's okay cause at least RDH won so woo hoo! I didn't get a chance to vote for ur other battle though, was fast asleep already by then. Hope u won Roxy!

Oh I didn't visit my friend after all, she gets off at 5pm on weekends so she already left her shop by the time we left our house. Maybe next weekend, cause I'm supposed to give her a little promo here as well he he! :):):)

PS. Oh just got ur other comment, more awards for me? YEEHA!! You know how much I love those awards, thanks so much Roxy, you're da best! :):):)

LadyJava August 11, 2008 4:35 AM

Hi dearie!!
Am here.. bright and early on LLP! Yesterday tak larat.. too sleepy.. but I think am going back to sleep as well in a short while..

No sight of boldie as yet.. ada holiday ke kat sana.. or perhaps the olympics fever has hit the uploader?? OH NO!!!

LadyJava August 11, 2008 5:49 AM

GP! GP! GP!
I watched the latest of boldie on youtube already.. my expressions

OMG!!
Oh Yucky!!
Menyampah!!!!!

I sent you the url to watch via email already if you want to watch and can't wait for the dl...heheh

Have a great Monday dearie.. am off to bed now ;)

Farah Deen August 11, 2008 11:20 AM

GP,
my mom memang expert in roti jala (dari arwah my grand ma lagi) she used to make thousands of them before she got married (for orders and catering). now, she still takes up orders, but we don't let her make too much. she makes perfect roti jala, so halus and all, so, whenever we see people selling roti jala yang gemuk2 and jarang2, we will kutuk like hell! hahahahahahah

oh no, i have not learnt her skills yet, tak jadi! kalau i buat, tak cuns! :)

Empty Streets August 11, 2008 11:54 AM

Happy Bday GP :) May all your wishes come true more so this month :)

Mariuca August 11, 2008 4:58 PM

Mariuca August 11, 2008 5:00 PM

Mariuca August 11, 2008 5:09 PM

Wah bagus la ur mom Farah! Better take down the recipe from her so u too can hold on to the secret recipe he he!

I like roti jala and my grandmother (arwah) used to make really delish ones too. Oh now I miss her and I feel like eating roti jala again! ;)

Mariuca August 11, 2008 5:11 PM

Jean Chia aka Ms.Yummy~licious August 18, 2008 11:21 AM

memang i've been using simple uploader at FB. i think it was because i've too many apps on my profile page. I've just asked my friend to delete all my apps. He complained that it was a nightmare sweeping off all those apps. haha!

now i can load my profile page very fast, but the only problem is my Home page. Too many requests on it lar.. it's about 900++. I'll need to do the ultimate decision, that is to click the ignore all button. :)

wah, sambal prawn sounds yummy lar! B mesti makan sampai jilat jari. Haha!

Mariuca August 19, 2008 10:09 AM

Jean!! I think I accidentally deleted all my pending apps request cause the last time I checked my FB, I only have less than 100 compared to the beratus-ratus I had previously! I think just delete la and start fresh like me! :):):)

Oh yeah my sambal prawns menjadi la Jean, even I menjilat my own jari he he he! ;)
