  1. Maybe the Raize already contributed significantly to the high sales of TMP.

  2. Can you ask our DPWH or Cityhalls to cut the asphalt diagonally when they cut out the potholled portions? Because it jarr the car too much and slows the traffic down if the cut is crosswise/horizontal and the depth is deep.

  3. Hope Honda Cars Ph will be able to bounce back this year in terms of sales. The other Japanese brands already have a head start.
