Scary Bus Ride in the Philippines
This happened to me on my last night in the Philippines. After my shopping in SM Makati, I went to ride the bus to MIA. I must admit that I miss the bus ride in the Philippines. Anyway, back on my story, I took this bus and I was seated on the back. It was not that full actually but there's this group of men that blocked the front aisle.

From the way they act, I had this feeling that they are crooks. When we reached Taft MRT, I have realized that they are more than five. One of them even sat beside me. I was scared and I kept my wallet and mobile phones in a safe place. I think they had one victim in Taft.

Before they alighted in F.B. Harrison, I noticed the other guy holding a red wallet when he transferred to the last seat. When they alighted, they already had changed their shirts and some of them had removed their head gears. What is shocking is that they also have an old female member.

It was a relief when they have alighted.

Ooh my, that's scary indeed! I remembered way back years ago in CDOC. I was in a jeep with my luggage bought in Ketkai when suddenly four men jumped on the jeep I was in, we were just 3 passengers excluding the 4 men, the other beside me and the other 2 was in front of me and the other one is at the door side. Ooh my, I knew they were, fortunately my wallet was big enough not to get it right away though I do not have enough money left, I managed not being robbed though after they jumped off the jeep (just few distance away, they already got out, perhaps they could sense I smell the negative on them) my purse was open. Thanks God, I sense it. I knew it's not safe when you're just few in a jeep or bus especially when it's night, ooh well, that happened at just 2 p.m. It's great to be extra-careful and alert all the time especially when you just alone strolling or stuffs like that in the city.

"It was a relief when they have alighted."

Hehehe...Nahawa ka na sa MRT ng Singapore. Correct word but you could have chosen "got down", "disembark", "got off".
