"I read your comment _____. I just hope that you have read the Sandiganbayan decision on the case of my husband. 4 and half years for someone to be put in a Custodial Center and been bashed till this ver day is no joke. But it's ok prayed for people like you. God will take care of the rest. God bless Shalom."

"You are too busy praying for others, start small by praying for your husband first, to gracefully receive the gift of guilt and shame"

"Panalo si Bong. Lani. Jolo. Strike. Marlon. At kung sino sino pang Revilla Bautista. Political dynasty at its best."
"balik nyo muna yun 146 million ayun sabi ng sandigan bayan diba"
