    I hate public show of affection especially those who were still young. Pero sa totoo lang, they’re the one doing this most of the time. Yung mga older adults, they don’t show it in public. I’m always hurry too, sigh. I’m sleep too ouch, that’s when I lost my phone. It was stolen because I knew that it’s gone when I’m about to go out the bus. I hate those talking so loudly that they don’t mind that they’re with other passengers. You know what, a lot of bloggers made a post like this already. Perhaps there really something wrong with the current PUVs culture.
