Hi Mafe,

Thanks for the warm welcome! Sir Paul did mention to me about you before.
I'm looking forward to work with you guys. As of the moment, I'll be working
with Mr. Oliver Malabanan and Dr. Lloyd Espiritu to come up with a project.
I'm still organizing a meeting with them to draft a proposal and plan on how
we can get involved to this project.
