  1. Hi im one of the member of Barriga’s clan from Danao City, Cebu, Phils. I really like the site. I want to learn more how to make website. Using PHP or any….. Even though I am Computer Science Graduate I honestly accept that I have a less knowledge about PHP using MySql or web designing. As of now I’m on the process of learning PHP, CSS for web designing. To the “Barriga dot net” web developer I do hope you can help me for web developing or web designing. Cause I really want to extend my knowledge about this.

    Thanks and Regards to all Barriga’s abroad….
