sana lang for real ang concern na yan ng gov. nuh? because if its fore real i applaud her for that. dinagat island is such a small island pag the pipol would continue doing illegal logging talagang isang araw were going to see the revenge of nature on our island. at sana yung mga na-seized na hardwood ay mapunta sa mabuting kamay ha? hindi sa pinapgawa nilang mansion, gosh!
