DJEsguerraINQ What if the tenants have ran out of savings na, not all tenants are big time baya. Don't assume all middle class or upper class are the same. ✌ More idle crap DJEsguerraINQ Anong mensahe ang pinararating nito? I think applicable lng to sa mga landlords na may other source of income. If main source of income din nila yun, no choice sila but to make singil.

Is this only for luzon? Visayas and mindanao also in lockdown. The question is pano kung don lang din umaasa yon nagpapaupa sa upa sa bahay ..... just saying DJEsguerraINQ Yeah, let's all break the law to protect someone. DJEsguerraINQ Share the Sapsap with them so that they'll have something to go by.

But how about the income of the those land owners? How do they support themselves financially too, for rainy their own rainy days? :( Fair. DJEsguerraINQ what about Bills ng tubig at currente we need to pay ba but how.. wala na kaming income anong pwedeng gawin

The sheperd doesn't simply tell the herd that the wolf is coming. The shepherd should lead them to safety. Ano yun? Kapag nilapa ng lobo ang mga tupa kasalanan ng mga tupa kasi binalaan na sila?
