Ngan Thong Paper Shop

If you want to buy books, go to a bookstore. If you want to buy papers, well, find a paper shop. Kinda miss National Bookstore in the Philippines which has everything. If it could probably sell food, it would. Some shops like PNC and Fahasa have paper in stock but not as huge compared to Ngan Thong along 55A Pasteur St. in District 1.

Am just hoping my project will come out okay.

    As non-speculative use of bitcoins increases, this should stabilize.
    You can also try to broker a private deal with someone over IRC.
    When customers thihk about you, make sure your advertising
    has left them with tthe thoujght that you aare a destination ffor premiu qualpity and selection, state-of-the-art prolduct knowledge, and utstanding customer service, and not price.
