Life is like a Rose

I was 2nd year high school when I first joined Journalism contests. To be honest, I really didn't know how I made it into the Division Schools Press Conference. To think that I was really not that good enough and I never joined any journalism trainings and the write-ups I have made on the pasts were just simple essays about protecting the environment which was for my science class and essays entitled "My Bestfriend" for my English class.

So there I was, in the huge function hall filled with faces of students from different schools. They all looked smart while I looked like a lousy stick sitting on the far end chair along with other students from my school. I was assigned to do the feature writing ENGLISH category. For about an hour, there was a lecture about feature writing and the next hour, I found myself sitting in front of a table with a white paper and a pencil lined up with about 10  students,  competing for the three places of feature writing English category. What we were going to write was a piece entitled "Life is like a Rose". 

7 years later, I found the draft of the piece I wrote for that competition inside an old notebook. I'm older now and still having trouble with my typos, just imagine me when I was 13 so please do excuse my lapses. Have fun reading.

LIFE IS LIKE A ROSE

Life is like a rose, do you believe in it?

FUNNY PICK-UP LINES

PICK-UP lines are kind of trending right now in the Philippines. These pick-up lines can be really “corny” but well, it’s kind of funny, to say the least kahit pa madalas na kantiyaw lang ang mga nakukuha nang mga nagdedeliver nito.



Kung meron mang Flip-top which is the modern Balagtasan, where opponents debate through some kind of rapping, meron din Pick-up tournaments kung saan magpapasikat ang dalawang magkakalaban sa isang babae na pagdedeliveran nila nang Pick-up. Sounds familiar? Yeah, right! Bubble Gang na nga ang sinasabi ko. Hehehe, anyway, ano pa bang masasabi ko but that segment of the show really fascinated me. I know, OA na iyong ibang lines and the Defending Champion, Boy Pick-Up (Ogie Alcasid) delivers nonsense lines na walang kaconnect-connect sa tanong niya, I have to say na nakakatawa pa rin siya. Hayaan na natin. Trabaho nila iyon, magpatawa kahit nonsense na. Anyways, I’d like to share some Pick-Up lines that I have collected from some sites, my friends, from TV shows and radios. Have fun reading them friends.

CIGARETTE WARNING

Before anything else, allow me to greet you all...
HAPPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!
I was watching this 2008 movie entitled Definitely Maybe starring the green lantern Ryan Reynolds and there is this part when he buys a pack of Marlboro cigarette. The usual government warning printed on cigarette posters and packs is....
 
GOVERNMENT WARNING: CIGARRETTE SMOKING IS DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH.
This warning is not printed on that cigarrette. Instead, this is what the warning in the cigarette said.
WARNING: SMOKING LEADS TO A SLOW AND PAINFUL DEATH

Now, that is what a real warning is. If only this is the official and real warning printed on cigarette posters, then maybe people will have longer lives and kids won't try immitating older people who are not afraid of burning their lungs out.

Hmmmp... Well, at least, even if it was just part of the props, this part of the movie made some kind of impact to smokers.
