Sorry we can't reply in our FB again !



Sorry our friends, we cannot log in our FB webpage again. So we cannot reply any inquires there. Please never never use our FB to ask question. Send us here or Google please.

We can still use our phone app to send posts but not reply ?!?! The webpage FB logged us out and can't log back in. I keep it as is, since last time it created so much troubles to our friends a FB spam-like message to confirm me is me (think about if you receive a message asking you to click into a link to confirm someone else is someone. we were lucky to have friends who directly asked us to avoid if that is spam but we really need help. We do not try our luck second time).

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2023 !!!
