General Santos City is not only known for being the Tuna Capital of the Philippines but also the home of the world’s boxing champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. General Santos used to be a municipality of Maguindanao and was originally known as Dadiangas.
By day, you can witness the amazing tuna harvest at the world class Gen Santos Fish port. You just have to secure a permit from the City Government to enter the port. Eating out in Gensan is never a worry. Kilawin, adobo and papaitan are some of the many delicious dishes the Casa Goat-an Restaurant has to offer. It is located along Bulaong Street.
You can also bring home Tuna processed products, tutido or the tuna embutido and the turiso or the tuna soriso. Before leaving the place, enjoy first the sand of Gumasa Beach which is comparable to the famous Boracay. And that…do not leave the city without your ice-filled styro box for the fresh tuna!
David Halberstam’s The Narrative Idea discusses journalism as a result of a developed idea. Trusting the gut is as important as logically analyzing a sentence. The discipline of writing is in controlling creativity. You don’t just let things pour out until the final draft. A part of the writer must keep in mind that the readers must be able to comprehend what is being said. This principle intersects with most that is written regarding personal essays. Personal essays and columns need to interact with the readers through familiarity, but must also give some sort of resolution, inquisition, or a new concept to grasp afterwards.
In non-fiction, perspective is significant. The voice of the speaker must develop a character of a learned person that people can relate either themselves to, but must offer more. An article is better written after consultations with people who are actually involved in the matters at hand. Real stories are just as interesting as fabricated ones – the point of view just needs to be able to explain, not just tell.
When I entered high school, I felt the pressure to learn a musical instrument. All my friends seemed to know how to play the guitar or drums. Because I wanted to keep up with them, my only option was to learn it too. There were far too many great acoustic guitars, and I didn’t know what to buy at first.
And then I happened to read a first time buyers guide that allowed me to learn a thing or two. I bought a relatively cheap guitar. My goal was to get used to it first and transition to a better quality once I have the needed budget. I made the right decision at that time and wouldn’t have it any other way.
The Great Wall of China, one of the most spectacular things created in human history, is possibly the greatest symbol of the Chinese culture. With it currently standing symbolizes years, centuries even, of pain, suffering, strength, integrity, recuperation, and so much more. Having had lasted under several dynasties, and considering all the lives that have passed because of it, the Great Wall does not only evoke aesthetic pride but emotional connection as well.
The Great Wall has always been ahead of its time. It serves as a reminder, not only to its people, but also to everyone all over the world of what can be achieved through ingenuity, cooperation and creative thinking. Though it was built to protect their nation, it has surpassed expectations and was also used for trade. Today, it is a tourist destination that still leaves visitors in awe.
There is a quote that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. A saying living long time ago and believed by many. In my honest opinion, everyone has their own asset and that makes them beautiful as a human.
In my observation, mostly girls put an effort to make them presentable to everyone’s eye. Aside from the cosmetic stuff they apply, colorful accessories such as bracelets, necklace and earrings make them feel complete. Today, styling the hair isn’t enough to mingle with the new groups; lenses do the job to boost their confident and it is used by others to add appeal. Over using of lenses in eyes may not prescribe by the eye doctors, especially the ones sale in unrecognized store.
Cheap lenses often bring the eye irritation that can lead into blindness as worst effect. Using of not sanitized pair, inter-changing usage and never putting out are the main cause of eye problems due to lenses.
