I’ve never experienced camping in this side of the world, hence, I was really looking forward to the first ever company camping at the Palliser Park Marina. Impediments such as upset tummy, last-minute change of transportation arrangements, lack of camping gears, and among other things did not stop TheCuriousMe from joining the said activity.
Initially, I requested to car pool with YW but something unexpected happened so I had to ask P and N for a ride. Thanks for making me feel welcome P and N!
The “shortcut” to our destination was to cross the Lake Diefenbaker via ferry. The ferry ride was awesome! I admit, it’s also my first time to board a ferry while inside the car. :p
The social committee agreed to designate the meal preparation to each team. For the booze and pop, everyone were encouraged to bring their favorites.
Overall, we had a great time! A good bonfire, colorful fireworks, interesting (!) chitchat, relaxing music, endless supply of food and booze, crazy antics, and hilarious moments. 😀
The camping activity indeed helped us bond, get to know each other on a more personal level and bring to light everyone’s quirks. It was an absolutely amazing discovery! I’m glad I joined.
I’m really going bonkers! Out of the blue (whether I’m on the street walking or in the work place or wherever), I would “belt out” the theme songs of their two (2) movie-team up, I won’t last a day without you and Fallin’. And of course, its out of tune! :p
Their love team & courtship stage is sending followers all over the world in frenzy! An “old” lady like me can even feel a shiver down my spine just by watching them (even if they are just looking at each other!). Their love story is absolutely an epic!
***Note: If you can’t understand Tagalog, just watch their actions. 😀
Sarah, being a true blue Filipina (in all ways), is definitely a rare gem! Her preference for her suitors to woo her parents first makes her a total knock out! Considering that Gege (a Filipino – American) grew up in the U.S.A., it’s fascinating to see how he abides to Sarah’s wish and follow the Filipino old-fashioned way of courtship. Also, he’s all out in shouting to the world how much he cares for Sasa, protecting her and makes time to be with her even if his schedule is so hectic! Whew! Weaklings can’t do that right M.A. and T.W.? :p
*** Note: If you can’t understand Tagalog, just watch their actions. 😀
Whether we admit it or not, we all dream of this kind of courtship and relationship. By watching Sasa and Gege’s friendship transform into something special makes us realize that dreams do come true. I guess, that’s the reason why a lot of people (young and old) are drawn to their blossoming relationship and magical moments. Aside from giving an automatic smile on our face, it certainly gives hope and inspiration to all of us. Agree?
By respecting their privacy to date freely will definitely ease up the pressure that they are receiving right now. Like what the Popsters, Ashralds, and other Sasa & Gege’s supporters always say, the best way to help them is to work hand in hand in praying for their relationship to last a lifetime. They deserve it! Let’s unite in spreading positive vibes!
Now, while patiently waiting for the next chapter of their love story… I’ll continue reading Kate Joaquin’s “Never Gonna Let You Go – AshRald Fan Fiction” and BornToShare’s (Does anyone know BornToShare’s real name?) “Slowly But Surely – AshRald Fan Fiction”. “AshRald Fan Fictions” are an ongoing imaginary tale about Sasa & Gege.
*** Note: I haven’t met Kate yet but I saw her “script” via Facebook. She’s a 17-year old fan of Sasa & Gege. And she has the making of an excellent writer! Whoa! I suggest you check it out. Keep it up Kate! 😀
*** Note:I just discovered the Slowly But Surely – AshRald Fan Fiction! Please give me a buzz if you know the writer’s name so that I can post it on my blog. 🙂 I’m so excited to start reading it. I’m sure it’s as awesome as Never Gonna Let You Go. Wheeey! Way to go BornToShare! 😉
***Update: I’ve read Slowly But Surely and I admit… I cried!!!!!!!!!! OMG! Wendelyn Dianne (@wendelyndianne) is such a passionate writer! You betcha! Finally, after researching her name for ages, I found it! Thanks to Kate (@imisshockends) for ending my “agony”. 😀 I’m just so happy because they are also now my twitter friends. I love AshRald and AshRaldTOS! 🙂
P.S. OMG, did I just sound like a PR Manager for Sasa & Gege?
I feel down today but not devastated. My US Visa application got denied. Although I got so distracted because the interviewer’s eyes kept twitching while asking questions, I knew in my heart that I answered the questions satisfactorily. Nevertheless, my confidence crashed when he told me his decision and the logic behind it.
The main reason that I was given was, I’ve only been in North America for less than six months. That is fairly acceptable reason…. however, I cannot fathom why they did not indicate that in their website. I could have save time, MONEY, and effort. Maybe the officer was just being polite? Hmmm… From what I’ve heard, US Consulate officials are known to be forthright. Hence, politeness is out of the question (?).
The US Visa application fee, airfare, hotel accommodation, and one day wasted vacation leave instantly flashed into my mind when I learned about the result. A considerable amount of dollars vanished in a thin air just like that! I could have added some few hundred bucks to that and got myself a second hand car. Or I could have bought a new pricey watch. Or I could have send the money to the Philippines. It’s so frustrating! Sigh.
I was even looking forward to visiting my cousins in Virginia but I guess, it’s not yet the right time. Now, I’m wondering where to go and how will I spend my vacation leave. Asia is too far. California is cheap but then again… I don’t have that freakin’ visa! Argh!
Hmmm… How about a cruise eh? Or travel to Europe perhaps? I got a Schengen Visa before and my record is quite good… maybe… just maybe.. they will issue me again a Schengen Visa? I’m just thinking out loud. :p
Now what? First, I got denied of a credit card. Second, I got denied with a domain name application because my (Philippine) credit card’s address does not match my current address. Third, I got denied of a US Visa.
Whaaaaat’s neeeeeext? -_- Oh well, it’s not the end of the world. You win some, you lose some. As they say, there’s a rainbow after the “rain”… perhaps I will get a “rainbow” next time?
“And I start singing, my my… my American Pie” or is it “bye bye… my American Pie”? :p
P.S.I decided to intentionally miss my flight tonight, hence, my return ticket is wasted. I would like to emphasize,it’s not because of depression or something. I met up with my cousin and her family and we will gallivant until Sunday! Ha! Life must go on! Aja!
In the end, what’s important the most is the guy who accepts Buffy’s imperfections and will move the earth just to be with her. And of course, the love should be mutually shared by both parties.(found in cool vs class)
Darn! Be it Korean, Taiwanese, Singaporean, Filipino and American TV Series… it seems like this is even better than all the TV Series that I’ve watched! Whoa! I wonder what will be the ending of this intricate love story?
“The communication between the guy and the lady resurrected after few months. An opportunity paved the way for them to be in the same time zone in which gave the guy a chance to visit the lady and “propose”. Is it happily ever? 😉 Think again… Last minute, the guy chicken out due to petty (childish) reason. O_O ” (found in my thoughts… exactly!)
Scott: It will make anyone wonder what Yno would have done.
Robert: Imagine how boyish it would be to approach the girl and the guy is already pissed. Of course, he will most probably blurt out in front of other people “what are you doing and who is this guy?” Considering the fact that Alex is more of a serious type person and a lawyer, if I were him, I would have probably taken things literally.
TheCuriousMe:Thats the point, he’s a lawyer. He should very well know that there’s always the other side of the coin. You cannot give a verdict based on a circumstancial evidence. You have to see both sides.
Robert: Perhaps, think things through, know if her heart is in the right place in terms of anger, giving a chance, denial, what does she really want, etc
Remember, there are things, places, people or events that act as the path – they could direct her to where she should be.
It does not and never always meant that she stays there. Maybe Buffy met Yno to bring back Alex to her.
(TheCuriousMe: or the other way around?)
They don’t always tell you that they are the right one. Remember, you meet several guys before you meet the right person.
TheCuriousMe: Buffy should be wise enough to discern to follow her heart and her mind. Both guys should prove their sincerity by talking to Buffy directly. Moreover, the guy who deserves Buffy is someone who’s willing to be with her (wherever she is) and help fulfill her mission.
