Unsa man diay ang nahitabo kang Kim Chiu?
Kadtong artista ba sa Katol Network nga mikanta og “Bawal Lumabas” nga pinayabag ba.”
Nabasahan man gud ko ang greetings ni BP Leni Robredo nga nagkanayon: Happy birthday Kim Chiu, magkasunod lang pala ang birthday natin. “I know your are in good place now.”
Kasagaran man gud gamiton na siya nga greetings o phrase sa pagpahinumdum sa minatay o namatayan ba, ing ana.
Parang hindi ako na-inform ha.
Kasi ang alam ko ay nag-charity work pa si Kim bilang paberdey.
I hope Kim Chiu is well. Simbako!
