    O, unsa man kanang tinuntong report ni President Abnoy ug Secretary Mar roxas nga duha ra ang namatay tungod ni Ruby? Bisan sa pag report bahin sa bagyo nga nakapatay bakakon gihapon sila.
    O, what is that report of President Abmoy and Secretary Mar Roxas that only two have died due to Ruby? Even in reporting about storm that have killed people they are also liars.
