Where Is Mariuca?

As you are reading this, B & I are happily on board a plane, heading for our much-needed vacation! YAY!! Finally, I am going to get away for a while and leave behind all the
worries and work stress that have been plaguing me these last few weeks! My bags are packed, my kitties have been sent to the Pet Hotel during our absence and all I want to do right now is indulge in some major shopping & dining at this destination we are headed for.

I'll miss all of you during my vacation and hope you will be thinking of me too. To my regulars like LJ, Roxy, Jean, Sushi, Emila and Bobby, do take care of Mariuca and MPG during my absence. Keep them spic and span and sweet-smelling always okay?

While I'm away, I'll be leaving you with a little something to have fun with. Just guess where Mariuca is headed for her vacation this time and you will WIN a souvenir from the destination I am headed for! I don't know what is it yet since I'll have to scout around for it during my vacation, but it will be a great reminder of me and my vacation!

Leave a comment here with your guess on my travel location. International entries are allowed. You can guess as many times as you like but the first person to get it right
WINS! Easy yeah? So have some fun here while I'm away. I'll be back on Sunday night and hopefully, we'll have a winner by then! I'll be having this same contest at Mariuca as well so that means I'll have 2 different winners and you will get more chances to win! Here are some hints for you to ponder upon, good luck!

1. My vacation spot is located in South East Asia.
2. The city I'm headed for is nicknamed "Kota Kembang" or "Flower City", which refers not to the plants but rather the women here, claimed as the most beautiful around.

3. I have never been to this destination before so I have not mentioned it in any of my travel posts here.
4. Another nickname for this city is "Tourist Shopping City".
5. This city is famous for its Factory Outlets.

Marzie! I know where you're going! Bandung, the capital of West Java,Indonesia. How great is that! With your hints and a bit of research I'm pretty sure I know your vacation destination. I hope I'm right and the first one to have guessed it. I thought Penang at first, but maybe you don't need to fly there and Auckland also crossed my mind. Kota Kembang should have some european flair, I read. Have a wonderful time, you deserve it sweetie!

emilayusof July 18, 2008 at 2:19 PM

I don't care, Marzianna! I'm up for this one too!! Hahaha! Have entered the one in Mariuca's, so here's hoping, if I didn't win there, I will win here!

You're in BANDUNG!!!!!! Lucky you gave the hint, easy mah!

Anonymous,  July 18, 2008 at 8:31 PM

I'm guessing here, too, cuz I really want to win!

Wishing you a wonderful visit to Bandung, the capital of West Java province in Indonesia!

Sure hope I'll get that souvenir!

Checking in on MPG on Friday night from Bay Head...ah, smells nice...could it be Acqua di Gio? Chanel Number Five? Love Potion Number Nine?

Kristie from Norway is smiling in your sidebar, and I am happy to think of you enjoying your vacation getaway while the rest of the gang and I keep things in order here.

All's well, and off to bed!
