Toronto is an improved version of Metro Manila (Philippines) and somewhat a bigger Singapore. The malls remind me of Megamall in the Philippines and Ion (and the mall near Somerset -forgot the name- is it 316?) in Singapore.
Toronto is an ideal place to do some “tourist-ty” things (check out the Ontario article for more photos). My trip there did do me good because aside from completing my errand without a glitch, I was able to relax, walk around and do some fun stuff like:
ride the train once again (I love trains!)
check out Dundas Square close to old city hall
drop by at Eaton Centre (a big mall downtown Toronto with 365 stores)
visit the CN Tower
drink hot chocolate in Starbucks (fyi. i’m not a Starbucks fan)
hunt for Korean soju in Yonge street (dubbed as the longest street in the world!)
and stopover in other scenic spots!
The most memorable one was the bonding moments with my long time friend Genevieve and my little sister Fritchie (both my fellow Lormanian).
No matter how exciting Toronto is, I still prefer the beautiful and serene Toon City… Ha!
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.
I’m a true blooded Filipino who was born and raised in the Philippines. I stayed momentarily in Europe and Singapore then eventually migrated somewhere in North America. Moreover, I’ve never been to Korea… and nobody paid me to write this. :p However, if Koreans would like to treat me with an all expense paid trip to Korea… that would be awesome! If given the chance, I want to see the Jeju Island, Seoul and the Namsan Tower.
I can’t really understand why am I so hooked with Korean TV Series.. maybe because it’s an excellent stress reliever? Koreans make simple stories into a great feel good and charming series. I’ve finished watching five (5) series plus one (1) in progress. Every episode lasts for an hour and the usual series have 17 to 25 episodes.
Only Hearts of 19 has 160+ episodes. I’m now in the 95th episode but currently I stopped watching so that I can focus in writing entries for my blog site and at the same time, live my life like normal human being should do. :p
My nephew was bugging me to have a battle with him few days before the beyblade tournament in their school. I’ve already turned him down a dozen times because I don’t have the slightest idea on how to play but this time, I gave in.
Before the battle, my nephew patiently taught me the basics. It’s kinda cute because we had to chant “3 2 1, let it rip!” before launching. Ha! I can really feel his love for the game. I wonder how long will it last? 😉
After a few minutes, we started the battle in the “stadium”. His beyblade kept on jumping out of the stadium. According to James, by rule, it doesn’t count (note: with “his” rule,I don’t get to add points to my score) and it needs to relaunched.
I did pretty good for a first timer because he nearly lost. -_- He gave me encouraging words like “you did pretty good Tita, you’ll win next time”. A motivator in the making eh? We called it a day and I went back to my Korean Comedy Series and he went back to his Wii game.
Before getting engrossed to my fave series, I wished him good luck on his beyblade tournament. Guess what he replied? “I don’t need any luck.” I nearly fainted because he said it like a grown up and with gusto. He even asked all of us to watch him and be his cheering squad.
A new craze hit the Philippines during the time when I was in one of the lowest point of my life. It’s a Korean show that’s “tagalogized” (translated into Filipino) and was aired in one of the biggest network in the country.
I ignored it for awhile because I thought it’s just a hype. However, my interest definitely increased when the Filipino celebrities were discussing the characters of the show on air. The Pinoy Channel site didn’t help much to satisfy my curiosity because the first three (3) episodes were nowhere to be found. Thus, I opted to use youtube instead. And voila, I found the episodes I was looking for.
I was glued to my screen watching one episode after the other. I was hooked! In three (3) days time, I finished watching all the 25 episodes… Talk about youtube marathon! O_O The story was simple but it was the excellent portrayal of he characters that made it interesting. They were all magnificent that you can literally feel that you’re with them (if you know what I mean ).
The main characters, Gu Jun Pyo and Geum Jan Di, were always arguing. Their fights were nicely done and well executed. I really like the show because it’s fast paced and you can see that the scenarios were realistic and everyone can relate to it (in my point of view that is… :p).
I was so stressed out at that time but whenever I remember a scene, it always brought an automatic smile on my face. And guess what, I’ve watched Boys Over Flowers for five times and I’m planning to watch it again soon.
