“Hi guys, if may makakadaan sa inyo along libertad po harap ng bilihan ng tela (Galactus). May makikita po kayong nagtitinda ng kamote. Pls po bilhan po natin sya. Nanginginig na po kasi sya at basang basa.
Alam ko na hindi sapat na pinabili ko si papa at hindi na kinuha yung sukli para makauwi na din sana sya.
