European Escapade Mug

After a week of waiting, my European Escapade mug has finally arrived and it is safe and sound in my box of mugs as I write this post. This is also the prize I had sent to my EE winner Monica, whom I chose to receive this lovely mug as a token of appreciation for being the Top First Commenter on my EE posts. Congrats Monica and I hope you are enjoying sipping our favourite coffee from your EE mug! Smiley

As you can see, I have one too. This mug I ordered from my favourite artist and my BFF Emila, who does everything Mariuca for me. She designs my blog banners, cards, badges and all the personalised Mariuca gift items I sometimes give out to my readers in contests held here.

Do you remember the Mariuca Halloween Mug? Well, that used to be my favourite but now, with this shiny new European Escapade Mariuca Mug, I think I have a new favourite! Isn’t it gorgeous?

I had asked Emila to draw Mariuca with the beautiful Milan apartments … oooops, I mean Amsterdam apartments in the background. I wanted to give this EE mug a touch of my Amsterdam vacation and since I really love the gorgeous apartments and buildings we had seen on our European Escapade last year, I wanted them featured on my latest Mariuca mug.

This EE Mug makes for a wonderful reminder of my vacation in Europe, don’t you think? Whenever I am sipping coffee from this mug, I will remember all the beautiful memories and awesome adventure I shared with the love of my life in Amsterdam. rindu

Speaking of which, I was expressing my sadness to B last week; us not vacationing any time soon and he agreed that we are in dire need of a getaway. Nothing too expensive or nowhere too far of course so the affordable apartments in Milan available for vacation rental will have to wait. The only location I can think of at the moment is
PD. Smiley

Anyone heading for a domestic getaway soon? Do share your location with me; I need some great holiday destination suggestions and don’t forget, cheap and near is what I’m looking at right now!

Happy weekend.

Or just check into a nice hotel in Putrajaya or somewhere not too crowded! :)

I love the sound of not too crowded and have never been to a hotel in Putra Jaya, thanks for the suggestion! :)

Ha ha yay! Maybe next time, you will win a personalized Mariuca Mug from me, woot! ;)

Actually I’m not a very beachy kind of vacationer, need my city shopping and stuff plus good food! But one day will surely go to Langkawi again, our honeymoon was there! :)
