A Corny Post | Weekend at the Corn Fields isn't Corny


_________________________________________________________________________________________
"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?

Corny nga. He he. I love the countryside. Especially pag naka motor. Presko ng hangin.

This is a beautiful corny experience. I miss being corny..hahaha...i mean lying on corn grains.. When I was a kid, i used to join our neighbors to harvest corn and I could not forget the this experience as we took our servant's share for the harvest.

It is indeed corny and I love it.

Gil Camporazo on February 11, 2012 at 7:29 AM said...

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!

ajpoliquit on February 11, 2012 at 8:51 PM said...

Hahaha corny nga! :p Very interesting din. We usually see lots of rice fields or sugarcane plantations here, but a corn field? Reminds me of the American Great Plains.

Paliiits on February 11, 2012 at 11:49 PM said...

Corny na kung corny, but I love corns and your photos of the corns made me crave! :D Hopefully I can visit cornfields too some time soon.

Rhea Liza Mallari on February 12, 2012 at 1:05 AM said...

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 :)

YANI on February 12, 2012 at 2:03 AM said...

wow corns are in season :) astig!

Ads on February 12, 2012 at 7:45 AM said...

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!)

acubepixel on February 12, 2012 at 8:40 AM said...

Corny nga! hahaah Maisin! hahahaha...

The Wandering Lion on February 12, 2012 at 10:54 AM said...

This is the corniest post I've read ever, like totally, hehehe, seriously I just love the countryside. People are laid back and the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. Naalala ko lang yung movie na Children of the Corn dahil sa post mo. :)

Kathy Ngo on February 12, 2012 at 11:23 AM said...

Hahahaha! Sobrang corny nga!

ralph on February 12, 2012 at 11:44 AM said...

Edmaration etc on February 12, 2012 at 12:25 PM said...

@The Wandering Lion,

True, kakarelas, ang sarap bumalik-balik dito lalo malapit na Valentines. LOL!

Edmaration etc on February 12, 2012 at 12:29 PM said...

@Ads

The corns are for chicken feeds

enzo on February 12, 2012 at 1:47 PM said...

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.

Blair Villanueva on February 12, 2012 at 2:39 PM said...

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. :)

Cha on February 15, 2012 at 11:08 AM said...

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/

Batang Lakwatsero on February 16, 2012 at 8:17 PM said...
