Pika-pika Yihee

Ever notice that something romantic’s a-brewing between two of your friends? Ever see the subtle touches on the shoulder, the intimate whispers, the exceedingly awkward politeness? Ever want to put them on the spot?! Well, in this Pika-pika, you’ll learn how!

So, listen in and master the art of the perfectly-timed ‘Yihee!’.


Please pray for all those hit by the floods brought about by Typhoon Ketsana (Ondoy).
