We were actually given a demonstration and we were also able to use their salts, massage oil, lotion and finally their mud. It was unlike the other ones I’ve tried. Please take note that their products are all natural. So expect it to smell sweet and nice without being overpowering. I’ll be showing a short review of the Mud Treatment in another post. Because Newsflash , we’ve been using the Mud treatment incorrectly and we were shown how!

Trust Issues and The Philippine Airports (Rant Warning)

Most people know I was raised in New York…Cubao. 😉 And even at that time thievery and the like was very rampant. Living in Quezon City opened my young eyes to bad things. Being trustful, I was trained not to talk to strangers, be utterly mindful of my belongings and keeping a straight face or just frown specially when walking alone.  Why? Looking happy and vulnerable makes you look like an easy target. Specially when you’re young, alone, small, and a girl.

I’ve seen people’s belongings get snatched twice on a single trip, a child getting kidnaped and was almost victimized by pickpockets twice.

We then let our shields go when we’re in good company, at home, with friends, in a secured environment like at home in a good restaurant or an airport because there are LOTS of CCTVs? Right??? Well well well not anymore! Because in the past few weeks we hear news of evil people planting bullets in the passenger’s belongings.

Now for those who don’t know, in the Philippines when you are caught with ammunition may it be a gun, a bullet or a sack of bullets, you will have to be detained. It makes no sense what you can do with a single bullet with no gun, but rules are rules.

This is the corrupt and evil airport people’s way to extort money. And in the last few weeks we get stories after stories of people getting extorted, detained or worse having their livelihoods destroyed because they don’t have money to offer. Like in the case of the OFW who was on her way to her employer.

My gosh. First this doesn’t make sense. What will you do to a single bullet without a gun? I doubt that a quarter of the people who were “caught” with a bullet have held a gun in their lifetime. Secondly, from September day in and day out we see news like such in the internet or on TV and yet what did the Palace (Where the President resides. Similar to US’ Whitehouse) do? They downplay the reports! They think that people are overreacting.

Wow just wow! Let me show you what Secretary Hermino Coloma stated:

“Kailangan din natin ilagay sa tamang konteksto. Libu-libo ang gumagamit ng paliparan at iilan lang naman ‘yung mga nakitaan ng ganitong mga—nakitaan ng bala, at lahat ng insidenteng ito ay sinisiyasat nang naaayon sa batas at nagbibigay ng sapat na pagkilala sa karapatang-pantao at mga legal rights ng mga sangkot na indibidwal, kaya ilagay natin sa tamang perspektibo, libu-libong mga Pilipino at mga dayuhan ang dumadaan sa ating international airport at mainam naman ang daloy ng tao sa ating mga paliparan. Sa kabila ‘non ay iniimbestiga at sinisiyasat ang mga pangyayaring ito,”

Translation: We need to put this into proper context. There are thousands of people who use the airport and it is just few who were caught with a bullet/bullets, and all incidents are being looked into according to the law and the people who were caught are given their rights. So let’s put this into proper context because there are thousands of Filipinos and foreigners who use our international airports and we have a good flow of people in our airports. Despite this we are investigating and looking into these incidents.

So wow “We need to put this into proper context.” because “There are thousands of people who use the airport and it is just few who were caught with a bullet/bullets” Can I just be blunt and say that this is one of the most stupid official statements I’ve ever heard.

These incidents made many cancel their flights to and from the Philippines. And not just that, it is a very scandalous way to start a speech. Shrug it off people because out of thousands we only get a few a day. Because everyone thinks that all of the people who fly are stinking rich! Hearing this in the news made me have a 10 minute facepalm moment. I’ve never felt this ashamed of our said leaders this much. And I am very very very sad of what is happening and what might happen to our beautiful country.

We have a beautiful country with talented and hardworking people. This is not just a rant, this is a shoutout to the people who can make a difference. Would the Filipinos always have to live in fear wherever they go in the country? Can we really not rely on the people we elected to solve corruption even to the smallest degree? Can the people no longer trust the police or anyone who are given power to protect the people but are instead using it for their own gain? This is not the Filipino dream. Please do something.
