A forbidden fruit tastes sweetest

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to talk to you about a very interesting topic which you will enjoy. I will talk about the phrase a forbidden fruit tastes sweetest. This is a phrase which we are all familiar with. How many of you have been tempted to do something eventhough you have been told not to? I’m sure you have. This is just what “A forbidden fruit tastes sweetest” means. It is when you are forbidden to do something you get more of a desire to try it out. This applies to Kids, Adults and even animals. But today I am here to speak on how this very interesting phrase refers to us kids. From our small ages we were very inquisitive of our surroundings. I’m sure you would agree. If we weren’t we wouldn’t be able to adapt ourselves to everything around us. Therefore when our parents say, “DON’T DO THAT”, “STOP!!!! BEFORE YOU HURT YOURSELF”, “NEVER TOUCH THAT AGAIN.” We will be tempted to find out what it is like as it is “forbidden” and we think it would be a worthwhile experience but it doesn’t turn out to be a fairytale ending. Let me relate to you one of my personal experiences which is quite a hilarious one eventhough I didn’t find it funny at first. I really loved parties; I bet all of you do. I tried my best never to miss one, but one day I got the news that my friend’s birthday party would be tomorrow, so I asked my parents and guess what they said….. “No, son our car is being serviced so we don’t have any transportation.” I asked them if I could go in the bus but they said, “NO WAY, YOU CAN’T RIDE ON A BUS.” I was not a guy who was used to the outdoors therefore I have never ridden a bus. So……… I wanted to experience it and when my parents said ‘no’ I felt a greater desire to ride a bus, so I came up with a plan. I pretended I was going to the party with one of my friends but I got on a bus and I was off. Let me tell you, it was THE…………WORST experience in my life. I had to stand as there were no seats left. I was squashed flat by the amount of people. Someone spilt a soft drink on me when the bus came to a halt and with all this commotion I missed my stop. When I got down I looked at the sign. It said Colombo 7 which was 5 kilometers from where my friend lived. “Why me” I said to myself. I had to call my mother and apologized for my mistake and asked her to take me home. Wet as ever I was taken home. Fortunately my shoes (which were nike originals) weren’t wet or damaged. From that day I learnt not to follow the forbidden fruit. Well now I jolly well know how to ride a bus mind you. My advice to everyone is not to follow the forbidden fruit. It can be tempting but you would end up being squashed and wet like me. Well….not squashed and wet but something gruesome might happen to you. That doesn’t mean that you don’t have to permanently not do anything but as you grow up you will have to do it and find out how to manage it.

Thank You…...

...som vi så deles om. Kebab kan findes på diverse retter, som sagt pitabrød, pizza, alene, rullekebab osv. Jeg tror ikke der er nogen grænser for, hvor man kan benytte kebab. Men dressing er et must, når man spiser kebab. Nogen bruger chili, men ikke mig. I hvert fald ikke om sommeren, men sommetider om vinteren, så man får lidt ekstra varme. Min ynglings er nok pita kebab, da det er den billigste, mest smagfuldt og efter du er færdig med kebabben, kan du spise brødet. Og jeg tror specielt det betyder noget, at du kender ham der serverer din kebab. For jeg kender en del som ikke har den samme oplevelse som mig, da jeg kender Omar der står og serverer diverse kebab retter i frikvartererne. Han er en flink fyr, som altid smiler og siger: Heeey min ven! Når jeg tænker kebab, tænker jeg hurtig, dejlig og frisk. Men faktisk er kebab persisk, og betyder grillet kød. Og selvfølgelig tænker man ikke over tilberedelsen, men det tager faktisk lang tid at lave kebab. Folk tænker tit kebab som en slags fast food, men i Tyrkiet går man meget op i at kunne lave en god kebab. Da selve ideen om kebab er en meget lang og krævende processe, som tager sin tid og indsats, og derfor nærmere burde betragtes som en slags ”slow food”. Man kan faktisk også uddanne sig som ”Kebabsvend”, hvorpå titlen går ud på at man udelukkende fokuserer på tilberedning af kød. Jeg har smagt dårlig kebab få gange i mit liv, men det var også køb i Netto. Det smagte overhovedet ikke som kebab, det var helt......

...angrily. "Not quite—you forgot Damon. He's also part of this tragic little love triangle." Katherine pointed out. "Enough," Stefan said cutting her off, "Elena, look, I'm not asking you to choose now or ever really. It's your call. We'll deal with this when we have to but right now we have to get rid of Elijah and end that curse once and for all. That means you can't leave me or Damon in the sidelines. I will do everything I can to save him but I'm not letting him hurt you, compelled or not if I have to I will kill him." Stefan said solemnly to Elena. "I'm never going to let you do that." Elena replied in a small but steady voice, holding her ground as she faced Stefan. "Then let's hope it never gets to that." Stefan answered squarely. "Heeey, what did we miss?" Caroline said smiling from the steps leading to the living room, a confused Tyler in tow, "Something that's apparently not fun considering all the serious faces. You all look like Stefan now, the extra-broody kind." Caroline tugged on Tyler's arm, "Time for introductions—you know Elena, Jeremy and Jenna, all human. Lucy and Alaric over there are the magic folk—witch, shaman or whatever. And then we have Katherine, the one who looks like Elena, Rose and then you know Stefan—all vampires, like me. Then lastly there's you, Tyler—werewolf. Okay, everybody knows each other, just give a little wave and let's get down to business. Yes?" "I'm sorry what did you just say?" Tyler said blanching slightly, going into......

...on a two or four year old kid? Hala!" Totoo naman eh, hala! Nakakatakot kaya. May experience na kasi ako, kina Tita rin. Inalagaan ko si baby Sarah nun. She was around six that time. Oh diba, mas malaki na compare sa aalagaan ni Kenneth. Pero kasi something happened. I forgot to lock the door when I left for the kitchen to grab her drink. Pagkabalik ko wala na siya. Kabang kaba ako nun. Pero syempre hindi ko muna sinabi. Tumakbo ako palabas. Nung nakarating ako sa kanto nakita kong papatawid siya sa daan. Kamuntikan na rin sya nun pero buti nalang may matandang babae na pinigil sa kanya. My recklessness. Ugh. "Yep." he answered. "I think I can handle this. I jut have to lock her in my room, then that's it!" napaisip naman siya bigla. "Heeey! I think we can have a date after all." Bigla ko naman siyang nabatukan. "Nahihibang ka na ba? Ikukulong ba naman eh. De saltik yata ito." "I was just kidding." pang defense niya. "Alright. I'll take good care of her. So see you tomorrow, girlfriend." "See yo—HEY!" "Hahaha. Kidding!" Then I waved goodbye. Pero bumalik na naman siya. "Uhhh... Kathy?" hesitation is plastered on his face. "Can you... Uhm. How should I say this? Uhm... Kathy—" I broke him off. "Spit it already." "Kathy can you please go with me?" nagmamadali niyang sabi. "Go?" "Uhm, yeah. We'll be alone, like, you know." tapos tines-baba niya yung eyebrows niya. "BALIW!" Tapos tawa na siya nang tawa. "Hahaha—okay I'm alright now." huminga muna siya nang malalim...

Memoir any place that I wanted, I could watch the hordes of students walking home, I could watch them as blur that painted my window as I drove off. My car gave me no bragging rights, but I loved it; besides, there were not that many nice cars in my town. I finally got home. I parked in the driveway and headed for the door. The sun was intense, and the heat made me suffocate as I tried to open the door. The door would sometimes get stuck and would take some degree of pushing and pulling in the correct manner. The mild suffocation never helps in the process. Heat always seemed to bottle up in that specific spot. I continued to struggle, it was so frustrating. I pushed. I pulled. I pushed and twisted the key. Until my mom opened the door. “Heeey.” She said while hugging me. “How was school?” “Same as always,” I said, as I would always say when asked that question. I sat with my mom on the kitchen table to have lunch. She had prepared some chicken, covered in creamy mushroom gravy. White rice on rice on the side, and a cold glass of lemonade. My mom always had good prepared for when I got home. I would look forward to it every day. And every day sit down and would give her some details about my in school and she would share the latest gossip from the family. Sometimes would go on long tangents and the conversation would stretch forever. But not this time, we ate rather quietly, only commenting to make fun of a particular show that aired at that time every day. We both hated......
