15 Pinoys jailed in Singapore for using fake tickets

Just like in other countries, Singapore requires every tourist to present a return ticket upon arrival. However, some stubborn Pinoys chose the easy way. Instead of presenting valid return tickets, they used manufactured/edited fake electronic ones. They were sent to jail and now not allowed to enter Singapore for 2 years. Aiyoh!

This makes me feel sad and embarrassed at the same time. I know how expensive tickets are to most Filipinos. Even the cheapest Tiger Airways or Cebu Pacific ticket can mean a lot for someone looking for a job and whose family depends to no one but him/her. It could mean meals for weeks or tuition for a son or medicine for an ailing mother. However, I feel embarrassed and can only hope that Singaporeans will not think that all Filipinos are dishonest.
