    Here's the link for anyone who's interested. The recording is too short and too muddy to make a proper assessment. However, there's not really much guessing involved, since your profile states that your from the Philippines.

    Could you upload a longer text? It's hard to say much from such a short video, but if you gave us a minute, it would be easier to comment.
