    Judging from all the recent published photos…they doan look too happy! I wonder what they are thinking about their decision to trust the big-brain people who sold them the idea to jump into that leaky boat called UCAL. Sold down the river. Or up the gap…widout a paddle. God help them.

    It is not looking good in Bim. Yet the PM can find money to host an event for repeat visitors to the island. Pure foolishness going on in Bim.
