In this Corner of the Universe-Polo avoiding Ara Mina, Mark Bautista

Polo when interrogated attached to a lie-detector-test machines shared the story behind the break-up with Ara Mina and his alleged snubbing of Mark Bautista.

Here's the news:

Wired to a lie detector machine, Polo Ravales revealed how his eventual breakup with ex-girlfriend Ara Mina transpired.
