"The moment the officer saw my passport - he carried my luggage. He asked me "is this yours?" I said yes. What could be wrong with my luggage.. The officer scanned our hands too. We don't have any idea what's that for so we asked him. He answered "secret".
After he scanned our hands with that stick, he looked at me and said "come and follow me." He looked to Dyan and said "you also."
"We entered the holding room. There were 3 officers inside. 2 males and a lady officer. "Meet my Filipina friend. She was caught hiding packs of heroins in her luggage" said the officer while pointing at the picture frames on the wall.. It seemed like a gallery of drug traffickers from all over the world. He reminded me that DEATH is the PENALTY of those drug traffickers.
"Did you take drugs?" - Of course not!
"Did you have drugs hidden in your body?" - What?! Never!
The officer searched my things thoroughly. I was just looking at him. He checked every compartment of my luggage too.
After he messed with all my things and found nothing, I asked the officer what could be wrong and why was he checking us. He just answered "because the 2 of you are beautiful girls."
"Now they looked to Dyan. The lady officer asked her if she was hiding drugs in her belly. Of course she answered no. The other officer ordered a body check on her.
MY TAKE ON THIS:
TRUE, it is in every country's interest and sovereign right to protect itself from harmful elements but what's with the manner with which the process was conducted? Will they do the same with Malaysians or Singaporeans? These Indonesians are starting to behave as if they are somebody when in fact they are not!!!!
This obviously shows it's not safe for Filipinos to go to Bali. My readers deserve to know.
Let's spend our bucks home or somewhere else where we are welcome. There are definitely more beautiful places in the Philippines to explore. Same goes with other countries.
