What was supposed to be a happy ending to a family vacation turned into a nightmare for Kapuso actress Mikee Quintos after she lost her passport while in South Korea with her family recently.
In her latest Youtube post titled “Lessons Learned,” Quintos detailed what capped their Korean trip prior to their flight home to Manila.
“My first ever trip to South Korea was going really great until… I LOST MY PASSPORT. I had to learn the hard way, I guess… ,” Quintos said.
“I don’t know what to say. Nawawala yung passport ko. Lumipad na yung plane. Naiwan na ko, may taping ako bukas ng 5:30 AM,” the teary-eyed actress said forlornly.
(I lost my passport. My plane already departed, and I was left behind. I have a taping tomorrow, 5:30 AM).
Quintos pointed out that it was her mom who packed her bags because when she returned to her hotel she was told that they’ve already checked out.
“Siya ang nag-ayos lahat. I was ready to fix my things. Paglakad ko ng room nililinis na ‘yung kuwarto at wala na lahat ng gamit ko. So, hindi ko na na-check ang passport ko,” she said. (She fixed all my things. I was ready to fix my things. When I walked to my room it was already all set and all my things were no longer there. So, I was not able to check my passport).
Quintos said that they went to the police station as it was a requirement from the Philippine Embassy in South Korea to have a police report filed. She also showed some photos of her which was needed in filing her documents for a new passport.
She said that things were looking up after she was able to secure another passport from the Philippine embassy and they had to stay a few extra days before flying back to Manila. EDV
