Thanks

Personally, to me the T'boli people are the most colorful among the many ethnic groups here in the Philippines

Hahaha

I think all the youth have the tendency to over crowd and clutter their rooms with everything they find interesting

In my 20s, my room had all my paintings, books and even my collection of artifacts

Now that I am much older, my room is in order but my office is just a tad cluttered
