      1. Hi Joanna, thank you for the reply, mmm guess you are going to be super super busy this coming few days apalagi on the 31 st nanti, i wait till all the kaamatan events siap and i will find a way to meet you, I am trying to find a direct contact mmm am sure there are protocols by some people . Have this intention to interview you as well in a casual way.. but i know it is not the right time as kaamatan punya kemuncak is coming.. if you do have time one day, may i get a ‘halo’ via whatsapp 011 101 25974 so i know where to start hehe FB pm usually dont work for a prominent figure like you. Kotobian Tadau Tagazo do kaamatan, sincerely, your fan.
        P/S.. cant wait to see who is UN for 2017, hope she is going to be someone that we can be proud of (in her own unique way of course)
