Farewell 2008, Hello 2009! *


Another year is leaving us and the time has come for us to bid farewell to 2008 and welcome 2009 in its place. It has been an exciting year for Mariuca and B. So many things happened this year; at times, it felt like we were living in a soap opera world! ;)

Before I go on, I have to give a birthday shout-out to some very special people celebrating their birthdays in December. A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY goes out to my sister Ann, who celebr
ated her big day on the 23rd. This was followed by Rozella who turned 25 on the 29th and finally we have Debbie and Bobby who share the same birthday on the 31st. Enjoy your birthday cake and don't forget to save a piece for me! :)


Here are some of the memorable events that took place in 2008; I'm glad I captured each significant moment here. See, it does pay to have a blog! ;)

The major highlight of 2008 would have to be the D
ead Body Outside My Window! That shook me up real well and until today; I get a little spooked whenever I look out the window at the playground where it all happened that fateful morning. This was followed by a fire breaking out on my condo floor, barely 3 weeks after the tragic incident. Though nobody was hurt in the second incident, we were once again disrupted from our peaceful daily lives.

Just when I thought nothing else could possibly happen to us, we had another close call when my ceiling lamp came crashing to the floor for no apparent reason, narrowly missing our fluffy cats lounging on our coffee table! We decided enough was enough so we took some time off to Bandung, which was my only vacation for the year. I enjoyed another short getaway at the beautiful Trader's Hotel to celebrate my birthday a few weeks later and received a beautiful pink Dell Inspiron from B, which I LOVE and have been happily using for work and blogging.

Things started to pick up towards the end of the year with the arrival of Baby Issy
, who came down to Malaysia to celebrate Raya with us. She is now back home in UK and according to my sister, has started walking and running. It seems that she has acquired taste for adult food and loves grabbing other people's food of their plates ha ha! Doesn't she sound adorable? :)


My fave pic of Baby Issy on her last trip home


Blog wise, both Mariuca and MPG had a wonderful year and I hope for bigger success in 2009. After 2 years of blogging, I finally moved my blogs to their very own domain, which saw my PR being slashed to a 0 but guess what? My friend TH just dropped off a comment here five minutes ago saying that Mariuca is
now a PR3! Oh wow, thank you Mr. G! I don't know how long this will last, so I'd better savour this sweet blogging moment while I can. What a wonderful New Year gift for Mariuca! :)


I also joined Entrecard this year and made a whole bunch of new friends. A loyal EC dropper, I had a big shock when my account was deleted without warning but I was reinstated after removing the auto-play music from my site, which was the reason I got deleted to begin with. In celebration of my 2-year anniversary for Wishing on a Falling Star, I organised another contest, which saw Roxy bringing home the adorable BEAR-iuca! Janice was the other lucky winner who won my heart with the name Chanel for BEAR-iuca's little sister. :)





Thank you to everyone who has been so terrific this year. Your love and
support for Mariuca and MPG carried my spirits high throughout the year. When things in my offline world weren't going too well, I had my blogs and my blog buddies to turn to. I hope it will be another amazing year for all my wonderful Mariucans and I wish you the best in 2009. Last but not least, my NY Resolution for this year is to be a better wife, daughter, sister, friend, copywriter and blogger. I am going to keep it short and sweet this year and forgo a long list!

Okay, I can hear the fireworks in the distance so it's time for me to end my post and say 3.. 2.. 1... HAPPY NEW YEAR! Love and hugs all around. :)

Roxy's Best Of... January 01, 2009 7:18 AM

Happy, happy new year Genie Princess, and congrats on your PR3! All that hard work has paid off.

BEAR-iuca is all snuggled up with the girls as we count down to the New Year 2009. We just bought four live Maine lobsters, and Rex is getting ready to cook them up for our special New Year's Eve dinner while we listen to our fave tunes on the iPod.

Can you see fireworks from your apartment or do you need to go out? It is 17 degrees Fahrenheit here, so the closest we'll get is watching them on TV... London and Maddie are psyched about seeing the Jonas Brothers before the ball drops in Times Square.

Again, thanks for your friendship in 2008 and let's plan to keep up the good spirits in 2009.

Love & hugs,
Roxy

Mariuca January 01, 2009 7:44 AM

Happy New Year Foxy Roxy! Thanks sweetie, getting my PR on NY eve was a splendid surprise, did not expect that he he!

We could see the fireworks clearly from our old place but this new one...not so much.

Ohhh the girls are fans of the Jonas Brothers I see, have fun watching ladies. And you too Roxy, thanks for all the fun and support this year, let's stick together for more fun and games in 2009. :):):)

Kim January 01, 2009 7:59 AM

Happy New Year Mariuca!!!

Kim January 01, 2009 8:00 AM

Happy Birthday to all your buddies :))

Kim January 01, 2009 8:01 AM

Kim January 01, 2009 8:02 AM

what an eventful year for you Mariuca...
hope 2009 is full of fun ..happiness and laughter for you and B :))

Faizal January 01, 2009 9:52 AM

happy new Marzie..

My thanks and appreciation for you is HERE

Mizé January 01, 2009 10:00 AM

Hi.
Wish you a Prosperous 2009!
Congrats for the PR! You so deserve it!
I only noticed it yesterday, I´m happy too.
Only now I read about the traumatic event that happened in your garden, what a shock. Curious, one of my neighbours decided to do the same, I´m so glad I didn´t see anything, just heard after.
Ah, by the way, I was born on a Friday 13th, year 73, it´s my lucky day :)
Cheers!

Mizé January 01, 2009 10:04 AM

I forgot to say, baby Ivy is so adorable! In the picture she looks like a little ballet dancer, so fun!
I don´t have any sisters or brothers but I wish I would.

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives January 01, 2009 10:55 AM

Oh, ho ho...Roxy got a New Year's Surprise from Mister G, too... PR2 for Roxiticus Best Blogs! We'll just see how long that lasts. Mean old Mister G doesn't like RDH one bit, and even spanked my Bay Head Blog down to zilch over the summer.

In a few more minutes, they'll finally start TV coverage of the action in Times Square... in the meantime, the girls are playing Battleship and Trouble while the iPod rocks out the Old Year.

I think Rex finds it a bit weird that I'm so attached to my blogosphere buddies... what does B think about all the time you spend online?

Roxy

Roxy's Best Of... January 01, 2009 10:57 AM

How are you spending your New Year's Day? Here in the U.S., you may remember, it's a big day for parades and college football.

Roxy

Roxy's Best Of... January 01, 2009 11:12 AM

Taylor Swift is on our TV...for an 18-year-old girl, she has a remarkable amount of presence...and Rex and the girls and I all love her songs.

You have pretty interesting year all in all.. Mine was so and so only.. Wait a minute.. I think it was a blast too, but I cannot think properly right now. LOL

bluecrystaldude January 01, 2009 1:00 PM

One thing I learned on the very first day of the year is sneezing and coughing shouldn't be done simultaneously. Feel free to remind me from time to time. LOL.. Truth is I'm not feeling well on the New Year's eve. Hurm.. What any better way to kick out 2008?

Leet January 01, 2009 2:42 PM

Hi,
May this holiday bring us new inspiration...
Wishing you happiness & health... Happy New Year 2009

New Year is finally here in the Roxiticus Valley, so we're here with more good wishes for you as we get ready for Rex's New Year's Day chocolate chip pancake breakfast. London made it all the way to midnight, but Maddie fell fast asleep on the couch before the Jonas Brothers came on TV...

Happy weekend, Marzie...

It's Friday night here but with all the holidays it has felt like the weekend all week long. We're just lounging around after dinner... we had some of that big pot of Italian meat sauce over linguine. The girls each bought a new Webkinz with several weeks worth of allowance, so they're busy playing on their computer while I blog and drop EC on mine... are Webkinz all the rage on your side of the world?

Shemah January 04, 2009 2:55 AM

Hi Marzie darling...

Happy New Year to you!! Sorry I have been late on the wishes. Just to let you know, I'm back in KK for a short break. Once Buddy goes to school, I wouldn't be home for ages. So he'll be late starting school but it should be alright.

Anyways, I hope 2009 will bring bigger and better and greater things for you and B. :)

Much love,
Shemah.

Grandy January 05, 2009 9:08 AM

Oh, Marzie...I can only see closer ties for us in 2009. After all, I have so much to learn from you. ;)

Grandy January 05, 2009 9:09 AM

That is a bummer that you lost your footing on the PR thingy when the domain changed.

Grandy January 05, 2009 9:10 AM

But it hasn't been that long, and for you to re-gain your position in such a short amount of time is very cool indeed. ;)

Grandy January 05, 2009 9:10 AM

That is a bummer about the MPG site. If it's any consolation, my Functional Shmunctional is a big fat suck-butt zero too.

Grandy January 05, 2009 9:11 AM

I will have to learn more about that I can see.

Grandy January 05, 2009 9:11 AM

I hope that your wish to see Baby Izzy comes true for you soon, dear one.

Nessa January 06, 2009 10:45 AM

Grandy, I wish I could hop on a plane and visit baby Issy right now but it's so expensive! The flight ticket itself is a couple of grand, so hopefully Issy will come home to Malaysia for a holiday instead. :):):)
