One of your people in Candijay was asking for a help for the upcoming festival competition in your place last May 28,2o18. Mr. Mark Exclamador was the one who borrowed 6 festival costumes here in Cebu. He promised to return the costumes in May 27 but He didn't. I am asking your help to please look for Mr Exclamador for us. We already texted him for so many times but he rejected our calls. Thanks Truly yours, ELTON JOHN MAYOL 09335444212
