Nagmamadali na kasi ako lumipat kasi i overstayed na my welcome dito kung san ako nakikitira. Basta. Reasons. Hay. So nung may ad ako na nakita na 5k lang rent eh kinagat ko na. Nakuhanan ako ng reservation fee na 1,500. Toinks. Pagdating ko dun kanina sabi ng may ari nung lugar scam daw. Hay ulit. Sa dami ng pinagdadaanan ko ngayon parang dapang dapa ka na sinisipasipa ka pa. Hay. Hello. Chos.”
