    Hi Sir, why super mad at XIAN to call him bakla;; di ka siguro pinatulan.. If XIAN is gay, well a different breed ng gay.;yung gay na may breeding, educated, may fear of God at hindi baklang bakya….. anyway, God is good;,, despite all the bashings, XIAN is fulfilling his dreams in a descent way,, hard work at walang tinatapakang tao, tutoo siya, kung ayaw , ayaw, not like some na kahit mawala ang moral, gagawin for money;; maybe this is the reason why you are calling him bakla;; dahil di siya pumapatol sa bakla…God bless XIAN; Look at you at MMK;; we are so proud…!!!!!!!!
