Mabuhay ka talaga President PNOY! Maraming salamat sa suporta sa amin! Mabuhay ang Philippine Single Association (PSA) dahil sa kanilang matiyagang paghihintay at pag-lobby ng batas na ito. Mabuhay ang presidente ng aming asosasyon! Mabuhay ka Pres Rhea! Hinihintay na ni Klawi o ni Marts ang pagtatapos ng iyong termino para mapalitan ka na nila. Haha!
Ipaglaban ang karapatan ng mga SINGLE! LOL! Mabuhay ang mga single! Mabuhay!
PS: Basahin ang Magna Carta for Women. Doon ko ginaya ito. 🙂
