Si Edmund Mendoza (surfing champion) nuong ma tinik ng ‘lupo’ asooowsss! lahat na yata ng bathala tinawag na niya. Biruin mung may tinik na nga ng ‘lupo’ duon sa daliri niya…inupakan pa rin ka Ben ng diin. hahahaha! ayus! ay matindi ang tama ang ‘sabi’ dahil malakas ang sigaw ni Edmund. Akaw ang sakit nuun.
