    Ay salamat naman… It is about time that somebody  was willing to hear what Sulatan Kiram has to say. Dont you people know that … Every great undertaking is first started with just a small converstion.
    Thank you VP if only the masses knew what a sympathetic EAR could do. 
    Where and what is PNOY and his sidekick Mar doing now?  Dont tell me that the sultan is unreachable …  andyan lang sya sa Taguig!
