"This post might be corny, uh... trite, dated, melodramatic, or mawkishly sentimental, dull and tiresome but with pretensions of significance or originality, yet I think it is safe to say that spending quality moments at the corn fields isn't a corny stuff."

A quick motorbike ride, I have all the access to escape the stress of the city. I must say our city is not that too stressful (in contrast to HUCs) but compared to the relaxing feeling of the countryside, I may qualify that level of city stress from tricycle-filled streets and crowded public establishments.


What a nice way to spend the weekend at the outskirts of the city where the view you have to see is purely refreshing to the eyes and spirit - no smoke, no noise, no crowd.

I still remember this was on a summer of 2010 and on a weekend, we decided to unwind to Caoayan, Ilocos Sur and be at a private hut in a place called Nansuagao. This community is a home for corn fields and the plains and the fields are situated on a location where you can view the Cordilleras at the East.

Well as I said this is a corny post all we had to see here is the beautiful countryside and a lot of corns! Nothing much to say, I am just sharing this to tell that we have spent our weekend so corny -  and yeah - at the cornfields! Haha.

I can not share any sensible words to this corny article but to just share some other corny photos.

This post might be corny, uh... trite, dated, melodramatic, or mawkishly sentimental, dull and tiresome but with pretensions of significance or originality, yetI think it is safe to say that spending quality moments at the corn fields isn't a corny stuff.

Hurray!!! Who would not want to experience this magnificent cornfields! I told you, spending your weekend at the cornfields isn't a corny stuff :))

Quickie post uh?

  9. What an informative CORNicle! It is indeed a refreshing time to spend a weekend in a countryside like a place of corn plantation in Nasuagao, Caoayan, Ilocos Sur. This yellow sweet corn is what I love best to eat especially when it is grilled or steamed. Hhmmm yummy, yummy!

  28. Wow. You said it right! A place with minimal noise, no smoke and little crowd is definitely refreshing especially when you're living in the urban. Though it can be really boring, I'm still happy to be living in a bario :)

  30. Is that sweet corn? or the type of corn being fed to chickens?

    I remember that we have two different types of corn in the province (La Union) and if I am right those orange ones are used to feed chickens.

    Your post is extremely corny (literally!)

  35. Great post. Truly corny in the truest sense of the word. It reminds me of home...my childhood when I used to cry in the middle of the cornfields during harvest season because of the burning heat of the sun...(Now...I'm being mellow dramatic...)

    Got to get going before tears overflow in here.

    ReplyDelete
  36. cornfields reminds me of the movie Children of the Corn.. hahaha during my childhood days, my grandmom, teaches us how to dried corn.. kinda tiring work. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. A fantastic corny post! This reminds me of our field trip to the country side where you could have a stop over and buy corn. But I think those in the pictures that are found on the grounds are used for feeds right?

    Please swing by my page too thanks! http://travel-on-a-shoe-string.blogspot.com/
