Maybe just maybe to some, the tag line "Ayoko mag-gas mask" might be a bit exaggerated but Hey, the possiblity of wearing one in the near future can be anticipated if we don't start doing our part in lessenning air pollution. This can be also be a good reminder for us who can still benefit from free air (compared to those who need to buy oxygen in order to live) to be conscious, concerned and compelled.
One Music. One Love. One Earth.
