-"Hindi ko ine-expect na ganito yung training na na-e-encounter natin... Ano ba...drama princess...ba't ganun? May drama princess??"
~"Talagang ganun! On record yan! Parang showbiz!! Go!!"
-"Ganun? Sige let's proceed to the topic. Mukhang naliligaw na tayo eh. Sabi sa title experiences. Di ba? Text style na lang kaya?"
~"Wag! Di nila maiintindihan! Hala wala tayong nagagawa!"
- interruption from Ma'am Ria: Ano ba?..Kayo talaga..ba't tagalog? Di nila maiintindihan....*
~"Game... English dapat."
-"I thought that we will just conduct seminars regarding rice. Just trainings. Boring trainings. But when we have arrived in here that wrong impression disappeared. How about you?"

~"May tama kah!! Ang laki ng tama mo!! They look like a cross between Fil and Koreans."
-"Crossbreed lagay mo!"
~"Ang pangit! Parang aso.... ^,^ Back to the topic... Thais are also very cheerful. Like Nam, Oom and Pim. While some are very reserved and softspoken. Like Non and Mo. Some are like Filipinas like Pong. Very, very graceful and sophisticated."
