MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Many people want to travel in style, wearing designer clothes, accessories and bags to express their fashion flair. But travelers to the Philippines are frustrated that they can’t show off their Gucci and other designer luggage and purses because of the laglag bala scheme at Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
The scheme involves airport personnel allegedly ‘planting’ bullets in bags of unsuspecting passengers for the purpose of extorting money. This has prompted passengers to wrap their luggage in plastic, all but covering the designer logos that they paid lots of money for.
There’s good news!
Gucci has just unveiled its latest travel line consisting of designer plastic wrap that will keep luggage safe, secure but still fashionable (see photo).
So the next time you fly in or out of NAIA, make sure to wrap your check-in and hand-carried bags or balikbayan boxes in Gucci plastic wrap. Don’t leave home without it!
