    When passing thru customs here in the phils. don't forget to have a handy 5 or 10 or $20 bill slipped in your passport-just in case... and just in case you are bringing in some "stuff"

    Mababait naman yun mga asian immigration officers sa US I've been thru. Nakakakwentuhan ko pa yun mga pinoy kababayans natin sa airport. Bumili pa nga ako ng lumpia after overhearing some "secret" conversations(selling food) behind me The only hostility I got were from african american security in LAx, and from white american attendants sa boarding gate ng LAx din - Pinapabyad at pinapacheck-in na sa akin yun extra hand carry ko without even looking at my ticket. When they saw I was on business class, apologize sila agad. Porke naka sandals lang ako at di ako kasing gwapo ng mga naka business suits hehehe

    When ever I travel I don't wear accessories like watches, kahit belt or steel toe shoes... Jogging pants lang and comfy sandals para iwas hussle sa pagsearch. diretso na agad after the metal detector. Mahirap pag madami ka burloloy sa katawan

    I don'think so, unless naka lock baggage mo before you go to the security check, pwede mo naman i lock after ng security check eh, sa check in counter ibigay mo doon sa nagaasist saiyo or sabihin i lock mo na... hinde na naman nila bubuksan after checking it in dahil meron ng security sticker sa mga locks ng baggage...

    Yep. FRS radios do not require any documentation there. Ewan ko lang kung maha-hassle ka ng Filipino customs.

    they open your baggage even check in at random. they will then put a tag that they opened your baggage inside your luggage, they will break the lock but you cant sue them since the law says so. antiterrorism act ata. my wife nadale 2x na

    yes that is true. kasi included ang philippines na countries under terror watch kasi nga dahil dito "daw" nagtraining mga jemaah islamiyah suicide bombers under MNLF/MILF protection sa mindanao......

    pero mas grabe ang pag scrutinize sa mga galing ng middle east at malaysia,indonesia.....na-witness ko talaga ang pag-harass at pag triple check sa kanila.....di gaano sa mga philippine passport holders
