I still don't know anything about your city except location and that there is food...
As everywhere else...and lights!
Like everywhere else...

I'm planning to come up with a promotional video with this as a song and it will show the beauty of our city.

Legazpi has beautiful panoramic landscape and, along with the rest of the region, has a unique culinary heritage. Most of our delicacies are characterized by the heavy use of coconut milk and chili peppers. It turns out though that 6/10 of the best-rated restaurants in the region are found here; 5 of which promote the local cuisine and serve local delicacies.
Lmao. You guys are funny.

I don't care really 🙈


Do you congratulate the winner?

Gracefully

It it ain't meant to be, it ain't meant to be

Simple


Any specific actuation/behavior? How does it feel losing? Are you happy when you lose? If you cared a lot about the game so much, how does it feel losing after?

Oh....we are talking about games?
I'm a flip the monopoly board and accuse everyone of cheating kind of person.


Oh thanks. This is the first responsive answer.

Follow-up question:

How do you move on?


I demand a rematch and do everything possible to win the next time.

Lmao. Seriously?

Every winning is a loser at some point. Every loser won't be a winner though.

Defeat should expose your weaknesses, shortcomings, poor execution. Then you build & go that much harder to bounce back & improve.

Defeat should be a sharpening tool, not a death sentence.


Thanks for your wisdom. But as I've said, this is an empirical analysis on how we cope with defeat/failure and how we move on from there.

You don't need to end rhyme.
It's far easier to use multi syllables in one line.
Compounds the song and makes it easy to ride a beat.


Thank you. I'm doing a Director's Message for an event next week so I don't have time to google what multi syllables mean. Care to explain? Thanks.

you don't.

you accept that you didn't win this time, and you need to get up and live life, and get up in the morning and do it again.

if you fail at anything, just get up and do it again. just like exams, keep studying, keep doing it, cause if you don't, you fall into depression.

so you have to keep going. until you die.

death is not even defeat.


I agree with you... but this is not a philosophical thread. This is an empirical thread. The question is better rephrased as "How do you react when defeated in a competition?"

Who cares? In this day and age, it's no mystery what goes on behind the scenes, but many are still blinded by the glitz, money and notoriety involved.

Why should I feel sorry for a bunch of fame-hungry narcissists, who shamelessly use their attractiveness as a bargaining chip and treat less attractive people (especially those with little wealth and influence) like third class citizens?


they are still people too! that want a shot in life and if they are beautiful looking, and want the fame and glory of being on the front cover too.

people want to make it in life, and similar to females who are beautiful and have it naturally, they all want a shot in life wthout being harassed and used for their bodies.

That's where we differ. I'm not fascinated by the glamour world like you, so I really couldn't give a butter about them.

It's an industry that's racist, sexist, ageist, elitist and preys on the insecurities of the general public to sell largely meaningless crap. I'm not going to feel sorry for a bunch of deluded pawns who willingly support what I consider to be a despicable industry.

It's where they get money to support their day-to-day activities.
Gay guys have more insatiable sexual appetite than straight men I guess.

Who could ever ignore
A city beaming with beauty?
Who could ever ignore
A place where locals are friendly?

Legazpi, a city by the Pacific
With landscapes panoramic
Ambience quite romantic
And delicacies fantastic!

So would you now go to Legazpi,
The City of Fun and Adventure?
So would you now go to Legazpi,
To taste its spicy culinary culture?

Book a flight, Take the bus
Or drive down to this city
Break free and escape
For once, have an escapade!

Legazpi, a city by the Pacific
A place comely in so many ways
Legazpi, a city by the Pacific
A place of elegance and grace...
Nobody wants to say a thing or two about the poem?

I will accept anything!
Beautiful pictures, SeraphC! Barcelona and Madrid are both magnificent! I love the unique architectural style s of the buildings over there at Barcelona, the place of my favorite architect and artist, Antonio Gaudi!
I still think I need to add one or two stanzas. Legazpi has so much more to offer than the ones already mentioned above.

It still doesn't have a melody... but my office mate knows a really good music teacher who can help us give it melody.

I'm thinking that its musical genre must be JAZZ or BLUES. I think it will be good to play it at some hotel or fine-dining restaurant.

Yes, I do write songs but only occasionally. I'm good with finding rhyming words and stuff.

The first song I've ever written was for an Capqua girl way back May 2008. Initially, I was still asleep when my mind was humming something. When I woke up, I wrote the song and finished.

Within the next 6 days, I wrote two more songs. Still for the Capqua girl. One is in my local dialect.

In January 2015, I wrote another song. It's a gospel song which I recorded on my phone. It's still in the works. I think I still need to make some changes.

Then just this afternoon, I wrote another song for my hometown, which I will post in this thread.

I need your comments and suggestions. Thanks in advance!
