“Maraming salamat mga kababayan sa inyong taus pusong pagtanggap at pagkilala sa isang kababayan na lumahok sa IFLC Thailand kamakailan. Nais ko po din ibigay alam na ang buong pangalan ng ating kababayan ay si Zaynah Yasmeen P.

Mabuhay ang Filipino, Mabuhay ang mga Pinoy sa Thailand (PinoyThaiyo).”
