Next week, I will start my examination. My exam schedule is quite hectic as I took 7 subjects and have to finish all the exams in 2 weeks! (usually around 3-4 weeks for 5-6 subjects). So, I try to make the most of my study week.
When I study, I love to hear music. It makes me forget how sleepy I was and keep me alerted. So, bored with my mp3 selection, I will tune to local radios. With songs range from rock to classical to bubble gum song that is so sweet until sometimes I was covered with guilt as it makes me feel like a pervert peeping under age kids (!). Seriously, what do you feel when listening to lyric like this;
I dream driving a space ship crossing the galaxy to find love There are many super heroes that I met Hot and tough far from the reality I dream jumping from sky to sky sweet like a cotton candy suddenly came a hero from above and he thinks I am an angel
And one of local radio here has a segment where you could ask anyone to be your date live on air. Although some said that it was so pathetic and Malaysian people are too shy to send their entry, I do managed to collect some of the interesting entries here:
A woman who wants to date her new close friend. She said that they both have flirted for quite a while, and thus, she wanted to know how he feels towards her.
This young male was on the show once. The last time, he tried to date his colleague, but was rejected. They said maybe because he is fat. This time, a girl participated in the show and wants to date her! She said, he was very nice with her. One day, her car broke down, and this gentlemen help her to send her car to workshop and even offered to take her to the college!
The result and my opinion:
As the says go, Fat person does has a big heart (forgive me for my language). And this time, the boy accepted her date with an open arms. He is so nice!
He has known her for 17 years and one day, he woke up and think that she was so nice to her and why they didn't date each other. So, he called this radio to ask her to go to a date with him.
She bluntly rejected him! She prefer their relationship stays as they are, as a close friend.
It's not a news when you suddenly fall in love with your close friend. I was trapped into this matter once ( At least I not asking her for a date on the national radio). We tried to date each other. But the feeling of love is not there. So, in the end, we both decided to called it off and continue as a friend. We still cherish our relationship now and laugh about our dates as we remembered them.
They have been a couple for quite sometimes since college. Then, she wanted to marry him. However, her boyfriend didn't think it was a good idea. He still not financially stable and she also hasn't found herself a job. Nevertheless, they still be a pair. However, it takes a turn several months later. She got a nice job in Singapore. She moved there, and being busy with her career life. It has been 3 days she hasn't replied his calls, text messages and even his instant messages through MSN. So, he called the radio with an intention to propose to her!
The good point is, she was very professional in her words. She refused to answer the question from the DJs when they asked her whether she still a single or not ("I refused to answer the question as it may be used against me in the future". One of the DJ jokes about whether she is a lawyer, but she just left the DJ cold and dry). Later, when his boyfriend asked her to marry him, she refused his offer of hand. She wanted to focus on her new launch career. He cried and asked her not to answer his question right now. It was really dramatic and emotional.
Pheew man! I don't think you should asked her live on the radio. At least not when she refused to answer all you attempts to contact her. I don't even think it's a romantic thing to do. Yes, she once wanted you to marry her, but the situation has changed, and when women start focused on something, they will stick to it until she satisfied (my mum said that)
Ok, the show does sometimes goes a little bit to far. But I guess, it's good for the rating. Not to mention you could listen to some of the most funny calls, for example a man who introduce himself to his future date as "a hot guy wearing a spectacle" or "your Jonny Benny". All in all, I did managed to stay alive through my study week, thanks to a funny dose (and sometimes drama) from the radio.
So, what do you think about all those calls? Does it appropriate to ask someone to date through radio? And whether it is a romantic thing to do? (I don't mind taking part in the show if it's o9ne of many ways to show my romantic side)
