Siguro that time na natanong ninyo siya it’s hard pa rin,” he commented. “I cannot speak for them especially my friend Luis. When I also broke up with my girlfriend, I asked your respect and for a little time na pagdating ng panahon mas masasagot ko ng diretso and malinaw yan na walang paligoy-ligoy. And usually you would honor my requests.”
