    ingat lang ang be ready to be treated like a dog.
    galit na mga canadians sa kanila dahil sobra sila mangapkap kahit na maycanadian passport na.as in praning na talaga sila.

    at shempre..mas makikita mo ang discrimination sa airport palang.dami namin kilala na pinoy na sa canada na lumaki, tapos hinihiwalay parin sa mga puti niyang kasama just because of the color of his skin...

    sad.

    from my experience, sa LAX, ok naman mga FilAM na customs officer.

    basta wag ka na magdala ng pirated stuff para walang hassle, yung laptop mo siguraduhin mong malinis at registered software lang. better be safe than sorry

    bagoong as long as naka seal pa pwede yan, ang hindi pwede e yung fresh.

    dried fruits pwede.

    regarding pirated upload mo na lang sa online server tapos download to the max, bilis naman cable connection dito 6Mbps.

    sinabi mo. mas mahigpit pa nga sila kesa sa mga puti eh.

    food sa pinas meron na dito.

    basta walang agriculture products or byproducts ok ka na basta i-declare mo lahat ng dadalhin mo kasi pag naamoy ng k9 yan wala ka ng lusot kahit anong explanations mo huli ka..

    by the way kung konti lang ang dala mo mga isang box lang dun ka na sa GREEN lane kung makakalusot ka at saka pag ina-eyeball ka ng kahit na sinong customs makipag-eyeball ka rin para makita nila na wala kang tinatago....

    Ok naman yun US customs. I haven't had any problems. Just don't bring any pirated thing, even clothes, accessories, bags or any related conspicuous stuff. When I come in I don't bring any food or electronic stuff unless it is also sold/recognized in the US like ipod, PDA, laptop etc. Dont jeopardize being deported. Not worth the risk IMO.
