Last Updated on by Daniel Limjoco

“My whole life, things kept on happening to me. I never knew why and didn’t know what to do. But now, I’ll find those answers in the Eden. That is what I’ve come to believe. Because when I think about it, Eden is want brought me to all of you. I’m aware of it, I’d be making a bunch of trouble for you again, but I want to travel the world with all of you and take this journey together. I don’t know what’s waiting for us up ahead, but if you don’t put your faith in me and follow my lead, I won’t let you down. Now set a course for Eden, we go together!”
