    Hi po!

    Thank you!

    @peiyamada by law bawal sya, though random inspection lng yun.
    got friends na nakapasok with it, they didn't know n bawal at swerte sila na hndi sila na-inspect.

    For me, i wont risk, baka masira ang trip ko ng isang bagay na avoidable nmn, but its up you.

    Do: learn how to be fake. Like conversations always start: how are ya? Ang response nyan always: good thank you. Tas ask mo din: yourself? Hwag mong iratatak mga kabiguan mo sa araw/buhay. Wala naman silang paki. Parang pang opening lang

    Don’t: interrupt someone talking
