But is Christina dem boys worried about. If she go before 5pm she and she three children gan only gat fuh pay $2500 – $500 each fuh de children and double fuh she. But if she turn up after 5pm she gan gat to add another towel to dat because de adult price after 5pm is $2,000. Plus she gat to spend money fuh dress up dem children.
