Egyptian Gifts



Aside from my beautiful perfume gallery and B's impressive HRC shot glass collection, we both share another hobby that is slowly but surely, growing into something equally cool! And that's our fridge magnet collection, which is expanding thanks to friends coming back from vacations bearing magnets as souvenirs for us or those we purchase ourselves when vacationing abroad.




When Jean told me that she was going on a trip to Egypt, I wasted no time in asking her to get me a fridge magnet and a HRC shot glass for B, should there be one there. I didn't expect Jean to actually purchase the souvenirs for me, as she was there for business and not pleasure. However, being the sweet person that she is, Jean did get the stuff for me, so thanks so much dear! :)




B and I both LOVE the fridge magnet; it totally adds character to our collection and is now proudly occupying a prime spot on our refrigerator! But the best part is that Jean Chia is now officially in B & M's collection and we will always remember you as one of the contributors for our collection! :)




And even though she could not locate a HRC in Egypt, Jean was sweet enough to get B this beautiful Egypt shot glass instead, which I think looks simply stunning under this light! Thanks a million Jean, you're the best and Mariuca loves ya! :)

I have a shotglass from the Hard Rock Cafe in Singapore. Do you need that one for your collection? I could send it to you.

Mrs. Mecomber June 24, 2008 at 6:06 AM

What a wonderful collection! I love little things like that, especially if they are regional.

Right now, all i am collecting is broken computer mouses and keyboards, lol. I have quite the collection! :|

First? Could I really be first??

Pretty cool fridge magnet collection. When we bought our beautiful home here in the Roxiticus Valley, it had already been impeccably decorated by the prior owners, so we haven't really changed much. The only thing wrong is that our refrigerator is done up in custom wood to match the cabinetry...so magnets don't stick! I feel like I am depriving my girls of some important element of childhood...they stick things onto the washer/dryer, but it's just not the same!

Mariuca June 24, 2008 at 11:03 AM

I've got a HRB from Egypt, its all wrapped up like a mummy, my friend bought for us. Its so far the most ex HRB that we own :):)

J@n!ce June 24, 2008 at 3:32 PM

Really Quachee? Yay, that's something we have in common!

The shot glasses are cool aren't they? I always get envious of my hubby's shot glass collection when I look at them he he! ;)

QuaChee June 26, 2008 at 3:40 PM

Mariuca June 26, 2008 at 3:41 PM

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives June 27, 2008 at 10:59 AM

Hey, Mariuca, if it ain't one thing, it's another, as they say...today Blogger's COMMENTING feature doesn't seem to be working for me...Roxy has been silenced all day, but quietly dropping EntreCards and reading the latest posts...

Let's see if this works, fingers crossed...

Roxy

Mariuca June 27, 2008 at 12:27 PM

Don't worry Roxy dear, I got ur comment loud and clear he he! I am just starting my round for the day, Mariuca first and am at ur blogs right this minute! Can u see me? ;)

eastcoastlife June 27, 2008 at 5:16 PM

awwww.... these souvenirs are so cool! So sweet of Jean! aiyahhhh.... should have asked her to get me one set too. hahaha.....
*envies*

LadyJava June 28, 2008 at 1:44 AM

GP! Just on my LJL rounds now... GO GO! heheh.. Eh i saw the blog that curi your gambar.. i think from now on must put watermark lah dearie.. even for me.. I've been relaxed with my pictures too...

Dah habis your translasi work ke??

bluecrystaldude June 28, 2008 at 2:04 AM

Oh, I also collect HRC shot glasses :)

Matthew S. Urdan June 28, 2008 at 8:21 AM

Mariuca, I think that Egyptian magnet would really weird me out...I've always had this fear of cursed mummies escaping from their golden tombs and stalking little kids at night. And now that I'm an adult, the fear has just modulated to a fear of cursed mummies escaping from their golden tombs and stalking grownups at night... But as long as YOU like the magnet, that's all that matters really I guess. ;)

All...I'm catching up on my comment replies. This is in response to the comment you left on Personal Movie Trivia Meme.

Jnez--thank you so much for the kind words! Next time you stop by could you leave a link to your blog so I can view your site as well? Sheila is one of my best blogging friends. She's truly amazing.

So, you can't believe we're both huge fans of Titanic, eh? Think of it this way...A lot of somebody's had to see the movie a lot of times for it to generate $600 million at the North American Box Office! If there were any movie that two people who don't know each other have in common, it's probably going to be Titanic!

Yours is one of the best comments I've ever had. It's an honor that you consider my blog inspiring and creative. If I can help you in anyway, please don't hesitate to ask.

Roxy--THANK YOU! I can't believe how many Oscars The English Patient won. I remember watching that Oscars Award Show and groaning louder and louder with every new statuette awarded to that film.

Hmmm, The Bodyguard. Now I admit a lot of things that often come back to bite me, but even if I liked The Bodyguard, which I don't, I'd never admit that. Besides, Whitney Houston's cover of Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You is just as overrated as The English Patient. Dolly Parton's original, from the soundtrack to The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is SOOOOO much better than Whitney's slick cover version it's not even funny.

Billy--So how is Sigourney Weaver holding up these days. Last I saw her was in the 911 movie For the Guys. Yep, Aliens is scary. It's taken about a dozen viewings, but I can now watch the movie without squirming in my seat and shitting in my pants. Talk about the concept of facing your fears, eh?

I was disappointed with Untraceable--although I really enjoyed the ending where Diane Lane swung herself to freedom. I agree Philip Seymour Hoffman is amazing--one of my favorite roles for him was in The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Thanks for the detailed comment!

Ken--yeah that would be funny....Holding your breath for the "suction" when you're watching it go down safely from a dry seat in a movie theater. If it weren't such a dramatic moment in the movie, I would have laughed out loud seeing my honey do something like that.

I was there yesterday checking out your post. Thanks for honoring the tag--I was hoping you'd be interested in playing along considering our former discussions.

Mariuca--thank you! You know, if it wasn't so damn popular, and if Celine Dion only hadn't almost made a parody of the movie with her heart-thumping performances of the Oscar winning theme song, I think Titanic would have given Kate Winslet the Oscar Win she so deserved. Really, Kate has been incredible in every role she's ever played, but I don't think any role Kate played was as rounded as Rose Dewitt Bukater. I thought it was far better than Angelina Jolie in Girl Interrupted and Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby or even Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs. I'm not a huge Leonardo fan, but like everyone said at the time, he should have been nominated as well. Phenomenal cast and every other Oscar awarded that year except for the shutout in the acting category--just like The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

Great movie, well-deserving of the love of movie-goers.

Gratcia and Henson--looking forward to your posts.

Cheers!

Mariuca June 28, 2008 at 5:10 PM

Hi Elmer, thank you for ur interest in my blog, I'll drop u an email. Have a great day! :)

Mariuca June 28, 2008 at 5:11 PM

Thanks ECL! I found out Jean was leaving for Egypt just the day before, so lucky thing I could still kirim my souvenirs he he! :):):)

Mariuca June 28, 2008 at 5:12 PM

LJ!! Watermark tu apa? ;)

Also, I visited the blog today and the post has been removed!! Yeeha!! Looks like my comment worked! ;)

LadyJava June 28, 2008 at 5:15 PM

Watermark tu is some kind of tanda on your photo.. there are software that do that... or you can just add it yourself with faint writing somewhere in your picture.. don't put it where it can be too easily cropped off though..

Cool.. they removed already eh... dengar kata.. excellent!

Mariuca June 28, 2008 at 5:15 PM

Hola Blue! That's so cool, wonder how many HRC shot glasses are in ur collection! ;)

Mariuca June 28, 2008 at 5:18 PM

Ha ha ha! Really Matt? Oh now we know what NOT to get u LOL! Your "fear" is really adorable! :)

Oh yeah, Celine Dion definitely outdid herself for the theme song, which always sounds so hauntingly beautiful, whenever I hear it. Perfect song for a perfect movie! :):):)

Mariuca June 29, 2008 at 2:10 AM

Yes dearie, terus remove after my comment he he! I see, thanks for explaining watermark LJ, will look out for it at your blog, ada ke? :)

LadyJava June 29, 2008 at 2:16 AM

Tak der GP!! I must start putting on mine as well.. especially the kitties pictures....

How's the translation going.. I've watched all of Boldie already.. hehhe .. you??

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives June 29, 2008 at 8:31 AM

Mariuca,
So happy to have MPG watching over my Bay Head Blog while we're down here at the beach.
Hope you're having a nice weekend on your side of the world.
Roxy

Sushi June 29, 2008 at 1:54 PM

Very nice collection! Mama also likes HRC for some reason, but she only takes pics in front of them when she travels. Magnets and shot glasses are great souvenirs; very small and easy to pack. Woofies!
PS: Jean is very nice.

BillyWarhol June 29, 2008 at 2:54 PM

The King Tut Exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario is still one of thee most Amazing things i've ever seen!! Just unreal - the Craftsmanship alone in the famous King Tut Mask U have there is Mind Boggling Marzie!!

Mariuca June 29, 2008 at 6:01 PM

Hi Roxy, thanks so much for coming over, from the sunny beach too! I can smell the sweet freshness of the beach and the golden sand, now MPG smells even nicer! :):):)

Mariuca June 29, 2008 at 7:59 PM

LadyJava July 5, 2008 at 4:59 AM

Mariuca July 5, 2008 at 5:17 AM

Have fun dropping LJ, my medikasi is making me drowsy oredi!

LadyJava July 5, 2008 at 5:25 AM

Sushi July 5, 2008 at 1:20 PM

Howdy Marzie, long time! I finally got my laptop back from Mama and can't wait to catch up with everything I need to do. Mama told me she saw a lot of these magnets in the souvenir shops in California, including very cool ones similar to yours from Universal Studios. I'd like to start a collection, but Mama is very lazy to start one for herself.
No, I don't get to go to Hard Rock Cafe areas with Mom & Dad :(
I'm so happy Mom & Dad came home and brought my computer back!
PS: Heard you talk about Nando's, is that the Portuguese restaurant which logo is a rooster?
Woofies.

LadyJava July 5, 2008 at 8:14 PM

Just starting my rounds again dearie.. but am so gonna distracted coz lepas ni nak makan pulak..heheh... see ya!!..

Oh how's your sinus?? All better.. could it be from all that smoke remnants from the fire??

bokjae July 5, 2008 at 11:51 PM

hey marzie, now you are into fridge magnets!!!! Hey give me your postal address, i want to give you some of my very own fridge magnets!!! Donb't think you find them here! Keen? Cheers! Oh send address via my gmail!!!

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives July 6, 2008 at 12:41 AM

Hi MPG!

Here to drop off a couple of EC on a rainy day in Bay Head and to let you know that I LOST MY BATTLE TO A BAG OF DIAPERS!! I am laughing about this, and already back into the fray... not gonna let the Pampers get me down, no.

Roxy

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives July 6, 2008 at 2:36 AM

Ya, Mariuca, laugh all you like at my expense...those Pampers cost me 95 BlogExplosion credits!

Sushi July 6, 2008 at 2:47 PM

Hi Marzie, I just saw one of your comments that you want something from Chicago( kinda lazy to read all comments to find out hehe) Please let me know and I'll look for it and send it 2u. nite nite!

Mariuca July 6, 2008 at 7:16 PM

Hola LJ! I'm done watching Boldie for the week, waiting for Tue's epi now!

Wah, u think Donna is gonna have an affair with Marcus' friend or what? Some more young and rugged (konon la!)...her type! ;)

Oh also wanted to tell u how irritated I was with K masa N proposed to B! K thinks she's making some huge grand sacrifice in the name of love la, but she is so not! :(

Mariuca July 6, 2008 at 7:17 PM

Ha ha Tina, that's great to see u maintaining ur spot here! I am so way behind in my TC post ooops!! ;)

Mariuca July 6, 2008 at 7:22 PM

And yeah, that's the one, do u like Nando's? I always have mine extra hot he he!

Oh, I was talking to Rozella abt fridge magnets!! She wants to send some my way, isn't that awesome? She initially thought she had one Chicago fridge magnet, but it turned out to be SF! Sushi wants to be in my collection too???? Woo hoo! ;)

Mariuca July 6, 2008 at 7:23 PM

Yahooo!!!! Bokjae wants to be in my collection too, thank you!! I shall happily send my address to u, via MBL or FB. YAY!! :):):)

Mariuca July 6, 2008 at 7:27 PM

I just finished watching 3rd July episode yesterday..now dl 4th..lerr you mean the PI tu ke?? mana ada rugged?? haggard ada lahh...

Mariuca July 6, 2008 at 10:17 PM

LOL!! I can feel ur anger LJ! Yeah, that's exactly how I felt last night watching her konon-konon mintak favour to Nick, asking him to marry B! WTF right??? Who is she la?? And true, N never clearly said that he LOVEs her, so why is she perasan gila ni? Tak malu ke?? :(:(

Ria July 6, 2008 at 10:18 PM

LadyJava July 7, 2008 at 10:24 PM

LadyJava July 8, 2008 at 4:55 AM

True.. no chemistry langsung.. flirting jer but nothing kan... at least when N talk to B.. I senyum2 gak..lolzz!!!

Eh dah kluar ke yesterday's episode?

Mariuca July 8, 2008 at 4:59 AM

But B also aksyen at first don wan to accept N's proposi, padahal dying to say yes but she wanted to jual mahal first. But tak puas hati betul la si K tu mengintai from the stairs with a sad, wistful look on her face, gila! ;)

Eh yesterday where got Boldie, later today only keluar! :)

LadyJava July 8, 2008 at 5:09 AM

yelah..malu2 kucing..lolzz!!! K tu mmg tak tau malu.. who knows what she has in mind.. ish macam tak der jantan lain....tsk3
