Darling, natapos ko na rin. Dyusku, ten thousand years ko itong trinabaho!

Programmer Zoorla
Anech ba 'yan? Ilang araw ka nang nakakulong sa laboratoryo mo. Hindi ka na nakakapag-gimik. Ayan, nagkaroon ka na ng natural highlights. In English...uban. In British... uban jungle.

Natapos ko na ang pinakabagong search engine na tsutsugibells sa Googelyah.
