    Good Morning Sir/ Madam, I rode your bus from Cavite to Ayala this morning. I was drop off in Ayala at around 7:30 AM. Unfortunately, I accidentally left my bag on your bus. I placed it beside the driver. The brand is Jansport and its color is green. The things inside it are my clothes and toiletries. I hope you can give me an update about it asap. Please contact me at 09989658211/ 09178425445. Thank you, Jolinnah T.
