"I believe that this year would feel like one of stopped time, and as the end of year approaches, there would be uneasiness and gloominess that would befall many of us. It would be good if, at least on this day, white flowers would fall into your hearts so you could feel a warm consolation and joy. I really want to thank the many white angels of this year hehe Thank you. And my Wooga friend Peakboy featured in this. Happy holiday!" he added.
