Over Christmas I was in the Cambodian airport and the woman viewing the security TVs tells me I have a liquid in my bag that is more than 100 ml. I tell her politely that that is impossible I have been through TWO airports and no one said anything and I haven't bought anything since. She opens my bag and pulls out my BRAND NEW big bottle of sunscreen. She of course took it away.
How did I go through not one but two airports with a huge bottle of sunscreen undetected...
Fast forward to last weekend when I am flying to Qatar from Dubai. My bag goes through the security check and I am asked to step aside. I worry a little, running the contents of my bag in my head. In my makeup back I had a medium sized pair of scissors. Yes, this is my fault and I should not have placed the scissors in my make up bag to carry on the plane and I apologized for that. The reason I am angry is because two weeks prior, I went to Bahrain WITH THE SAME MAKEUP BAG! I haven't moved anything from the bag in the two weeks I was home. In other words, I went on the plane with a pair of scissors.
This just proves to me that not everyone at the airport is always 100% alert and THIS is how shit happens on planes.
P.s anything specific you would like me to blog about? I will try my best within reason!
