The first time I ever heard of people planting drugs and other illegal items in your luggage was from Jeroen, my husband, before we got married.
Jeroen first arrived in Manila in 1997 with a giant backpack. He told me he had to secure all openings and zippers of his backpack because he had heard of airport people planting drugs inside the pockets of the passengers’ bags. Incidents like these happen not only in the Philippines but in other countries as well.
My brother Dennis gave up on locking his luggage altogether when his Mac disappeared from his locked luggage.
“Why bother locking?” said Dennis. “Let me just make their lives easier so they can help themselves to my luggage,” he said.
In this viral video, a former OFW from General Santos shows us how easy it is to open up a locked luggage, plant knives inside, and lock it again. Watch.

Gives you more reason to invest in Rimowa luggage with the locking zippers.
Luckily, I have never lost anything.
Anything AlDub touches turns to gold. Or put Alden Richards or Maine Mendoza on the cover and expect it to be sold out. With AlDub as Philippine TV’s current It Couple, it was inevitable that Preview put them on the cover.
But since the splitscreen actors couldn’t be photographed together or be at the same place at the same time, Preview had to orchestrated choreography and photoshopping skills to make the cover happen.
First they had to get two of the busiest stars in town to commit, which took a month and a half before a final date was pinned down.
Next, Preview’s Creative Director Vince Uy had to arrange for pieces from Gucci’s Cruise 2016 collection to be flown in.
The photoshoot finally happened at Sulo Hotel in Quezon City with Editorial Assistant Yanna Lopez standing in for Maine while photographing Alden.
Associate Director Eugene David stood in for Alden Richards during Maine’s turn.
“Producing this cover shoot was both challenging and exciting at the same time,” said Isha Valles, Executive Editor of Preview magazine. “The energy was palpable and we all came out with greater admiration for Maine and Alden.”
Preview’s November issue is out in book stores, convenience stores and supermakets nationwide. Or download the digital edition through Apple Newsstand and Buqo.ph.
