The Annie B. Chronicles: “Krisis the Moment”

The Annie B. (Batobalani) Chronicles The adventures and misadventures of a ‘not so average’ Pinay trying to make it in the cosmopolitan city of Dubai.     Last month, may kumalat na tsismax sa aming opisina na dahil nga raw sa recession, people have stopped buying luxury goods.
