    I just got a $827.89 Samsung Galaxy Tab for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

    The ideal is: suspension  of classes should be announced early morning before school opens or in the  late evening to allow the school children more time in bed. It is futile, ridiculous, and dangerous to suspend classes when the kids are already in school. Schools should not let loose their young students while the typhoon is still unleashing strong winds and pouring huge amount of water that could cause flash floods.

      Yeah, that’s the ideal thing. However, nasa atin pa din yan kung papasok tayo o hindi. Kapag tingin natin ay mapanganib na bumiyahe pa at pumasok ng paaralan, huwag na tayong pumasok. Bakit pa tayo maghinhintay ng abiso ng DepEd o CHED? For sure naman hindi naman magbibigay ng exam o quiz ang mga guro kapag ganitong may bagyo o malakas na hangin at ulan di ba? O kung magbigay man, I’m sure ang mga mag-a-absent ay bibigyan din naman yan ng opportunity to make up for the requirements they missed.

      Aral: Huwag nang maghintay pa ng abiso ng pagsuspinde ng mga pasok sa paaralan. Kapag sa tingin natin ay mapanganib na bumiyahe at pumasok, huwag nang pumasok.
