Review về khẩu trang Airphin

Nhớ năm 2006 khi mình rời Hà Nội đi học, Hà Nội là thành phố xanh sạch, còn có danh hiệu gì thì phải. Thoáng cái 10 năm quay lại, Hà Nội xanh sạch đã biến mất, thay vào đó là các công trình bê tông hoành tráng, nhưng ngột ngạt và nóng bức. Mùa… Continue reading Review về khẩu trang Airphin
