When I went to Ontario, my “little sister” Fritchie, included apple picking in the itinerary. I was thrilled because I haven’t seen an apple tree yet. Ha!  I don’t know how it came about, but apple or apple trees seem to be a big thing on the other side of the world  (Philippines) where I grew up. :p

On the day of the apple picking, Bob (Fritchie’s husband) drove us to find a particular apple farm. While Bob was giving me a crash course about Canada, Fritchie noticed that we were driving in circles and can’t seem to find that elusive apple farm.

It’s kinda funny because we ended up going to a pumpkin farm. -_-  To maximize our time, we decided to go to Badlands as well.  Moreover,  we also had fun driving up and down the hill (a “roller coaster” ride!) in which it surely made Charles giggly. Hahaha!

pumpkins!

badlands

Bob searched for another good apple farm near the area where he grew up. The next “apple picking” itinerary got pushed back several times. Nonetheless, we were able to do it on my last day in Ontario.  It’s weird because Charles decided to get cranky during that day. He was weeping while we were walking in the apple farm. It was so loud that we can even hear the echo! Maybe he can sense that it was my last day in Ontario? Or he was just pulling our leg? Hmmm…

Anyway, he did stop crying when he got tired.  And we all enjoyed picking (and eating) apples!  I thought apple trees are tall like pine trees. Good thing it’s not, or else, I won’t be able to reach any apples at all. It does resemble the guava tree that I used to climb when I was a teenybopper back in the Philippines.Ha!

Charles & Bob

want some? 😀

What should I do next? Maybe pick tulips in Netherlands? I didn’t get to do that when I was there (click here to read the  Netherlands article). Or be a DJ for a day at Wave radio (i hope i won’t mess up the titles. :p)? Or perform like what Madonna did during the Superbowl? Ha! We’ll see.

songs & lyrics

I have this uncanny thing with titles and lyrics. It all gets mixed up in my head and the next thing you know, it becomes a “new” song. :p

Hence, requesting for a song is such an ordeal for me (or should I say to the DJ on board?).   Check out the crazy moments whenever I request a song via Wave radio with DJ Mitch on board:

radio booth: before show begins

TheCuriousMe: Please play “Burn”
DJ Mitch:            Ok.
(Then she plays “Burn” with the lyrics “I want you to burn, Burn for me baby..”)

TheCuriousMe:  No, that’s not right song.  The lyrics should have  “… watch me burn…”

(Note: I was referring to Rihanna/Eminem’s song, “Love the Way You Lie”)

———————-

TheCuriousMe:  I want to request a back to back song, Bad Romance and Rhumba.
DJ Mitch:               What do you mean Rhumba?
TheCuriousMe: The song with, “lalala rhumba, lalala rhumba”

Note: It turns out, the title is “I know you want me”. 
            At least I got the “Bad Romance” right. hahaha

—————————–

TheCuriousMe:  Please play “Galileo”
DJ Mitch:                Galileo what???
TheCuriousMe:  I don’t really know the title but the lyrics has a Galileo in it.

(Note: The Galileo I was saying should be “Gotta let go” and the title of the song is Dynamite)

—————————–

TheCuriousMe:  I want to request the song with “kiss” in the lyrics
DJ Mitch:                How the hell will I know that?
TheCuriousMe:  The song has humps and kiss. You know that song. It’s one of your favorites last year.

Note: That “humps & kiss” should be pumped up kicks. :p

There you have it! Now, who wants to challenge that creativity in jumbling up titles and lyrics? Are you up for it Justin M? 😉

P.S.  DJ Mitch, kindly play any Air Supply song. 😀

DJ Mitch: “tea?”

cool vs class

According to Robert E, cool guys are everywhere but class guys are endangered species. He further explained that cool guys are womanizers in general…while there are some that are not but most of them are.

Robert E also pointed out that class guys are not expected to be cool. Though they will try but it will not come naturally. Iit made me wonder, is cool guy synonymous to bad guy and the class guy refers to good guy? Ponder, ponder… Hmmm…

On the other hand, Mitch cited that a concrete example of cool and class guy are Yno (cool) and Alex (class). The heroine in this love triangle is Buffy. Buffy first “met” Alex and Yno came along unexpectedly. One thing to note is that Alex and Buffy were no longer an item when she “met” Yno.

At this point, it seems like Alex attempt to be reunited with Buffy is futile because Buffy and Yno have undeniably “something special” going on.

Here’s a scenario to think about:
Buffy can be herself with Yno. She can be sarcastic, grumpy, emotional, happy, childlike, etc. Surprisingly, Yno knows how to deal with it. And if Buffy is out of the line, Yno will tell her point-blank and vice versa.

With Alex, it seemed to be surreal where everything is revolving in a virtual world. Alex does not directly communicate with Buffy so the communication alone is absolutely unstable.

At any rate, whether class or cool it really doesn’t matter. 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.

Agree or disagree? :p

song

Feeling low and having nightmares are not exactly a good manifestation that things are going right…. I hope I’m wrong… Anyhow, it’s been ages since I’ve experienced this. I think the pressure at work and the added stress of attending evening classes are  finally taking a toll on me. Over-fatigue is definitely overpowering my weak immune system and overshadowing my sunny sunshine smile. -_-

At times like this, listening to Mitch show on wave radio helps me go through the day; one morning, a “special friend” requested several songs for me. What really comforted me the most was the song from Al Jarreau. He already requested that song a couple of times but the impact today is so powerful. It’s a wonder indeed!

That song definitely made my day!
I’m looking forward for him to make the song into reality. :p

fate or ?

For the past few months, the lady was mulling over guy’s attempt to rekindle their failed relationship. Frequent exchange of heartwarming songs via wave radio was the communication medium for the past couple of months. The guy’s persistence is evident but the sincerity seemed to be lacking because he does not have guts to talk directly to the lady (refer to my thoughts… exactly!).

On the other hand, Antonio (the lady’s colleague) was crawling into lady’s life. Antonio is a typical boy next door type who loves animals and SUVs. He portrays a cold and snub facade but the lady can sense that he is fun to be with, sweet, loving and caring person. Somehow… somewhere… it moved to another level…

The lady wonders if its magic or its just a figment of her wild imagination.She doesn’t want to assume anything so she intended on clarifying things with Antonio in order to clear the air… It didn’t happen. Instead, he expressed his thoughts through songs on air (via kiss, magic and wave radio) the same way as the other guy was doing. Is history repeating itself?

The “conversation” is done through exchange of songs on air and YouTube links via text messages. Strangely, Antonio’s choice of songs were cleverly picked and apt for the situation. He also managed to find a reply to the songs in the nick of time. The lady played it cool because she might be reading more into it than she should be.

It’s evident that there’s something between the lady and Antonio that cannot be explained by words alone… even their common friend, Mitch, thinks so. Unfortunately, the situation is a bit complicated so the lady decided to “stay away” until he sorted out the matter. It’s a feat for her not to communicate with him but she had to endure.

From then on, she hears songs and see things that remind her of Antonio wherever she goes. The lady brushed it off and regarded it as mere coincidence. One afternoon while waiting for the elevator, the lady heard the song which Antonio constantly requested on air via Magic and Kiss radio. The astonishing part is, it’s an unusual song to be played in her side of the world. The lady doesn’t believe in “signs” but that caught her off guard.

It made the lady ponder if this “magic” will still move to another level or is it the case wherein, she should accept that it will never happen and should just move on with her life? What she is certain about is, she won’t dwell over the “what ifs” and the “fallin and flyin” situation of Antonio. Instead, she will do her best to enjoy life to the fullest and work on fulfilling her back up plan, just in case there’s no progress yet by December 2010. Reasonable isn’t it?

Though one thing is inevitable, Antonio changed the lady’s life and captivated her elusive heart. With all the cobweb of confusions and complexities of the situation, in the end, will Antonio be the one to hold the lady in his arms? Or will the lady end up with the other guy… after all?

That remains to be seen.

Lesson to be learned:
It may be tough but stay away until the coast is clear.
