Our date came late last night because she was a witness of a suicide at Gaisano Mall. A man jumped out from the railings of the mall’s 3rd floor 5 pm on November 4, Sunday afternoon. The act caused chaos and commotion among shoppers. Our friend is a supplier at the mall and was supposed to check her merchandise at the 4th floor but on her way up the elevator, she suddenly saw a man already on the ground floor bathed on his own blood.
