earlier while i was riding a cab to work, i was listening to magic 89.9 with sam yg, mojo and i forgot the name of the only lady dj (sorry!). they were giving out prizes for tomorrow, valentine's day. one in which was a P5,000 worth of gcs for itallianis. the procedure was simple, just go in the station and tell the djs why would they give you the prize. the first prize was actually given 20 minutes after they've announced the contest around 12 midnight. then the station just decided to give one more prize after 4 more people swarmed the studio.
the funny thing about this program is that they are not your conventional radio show. as far as i know they are the only radio show that is able to cross the air waves of even the television arena because of being so controversial. djs are so straight forward, if they don't like your answer, they wouldn't hesitate to rebutt you, dump you and move on to the next caller. it seems like sugar coating is not in their vocabulary. so it really takes gutts to call this program and this makes them unique from the other radio shows.
anyhow, the remaining 4 people who came in the studio was given the chance to win the same prize. they just have to convince the djs and some audiences that were doing the poll to choose them by answering the same question; why would they have to choose him/her to win the prize?
among the 4 contestants, my bet was on the only rose among the thorns, baby. she came all the way from laguna that early morning because she and her husband for five years has never experienced a valentine date before. for me. the effort of the woman to get a date for her husband would probably be the sweetest thing a woman could do for her partner during such occasion. i must agree when one of the caller reasoned that when you are already married, the romance and the excitement shouldn't stop there.
aside from the effort, it is actually quite rare for women nowadays to do such deed, that are normally being done by man. kudos to baby for stepping out the norm.
args! now, i am really hating the chumminess of the valentine air.
