    kailangan mahuli at maimbistigahan kung may groupo ng terorista na nakapasok sa baguio. Ang masaklap ay sa tyempo ng panagbenga na maraming taong nasa lugar na ito.

    dapat mahuli agad, kasi masisira ang good nature ng baguio, especially sa mga turista, matatakot sila, yun pa naman ang motive ng panagbenga para maingganyo ang mga dayuhan sa ating seyudad. at manood ng different view ng baguio, culture etc..

    One the few place in the country’s North, where one can take respite from the bustling and crime feared nightlife and drudgery in Manila. Now, the perpetrators must be apprehended. Otherwise, Baguio city’s ‘little paradise’ will slowly inch away from the World famous Summer Capital in the Philippines to a city of crime in the North.
