Who knew the ferocity behind this face?

If I recall from the trips I've had, passengers are charged: (PhP = Philippine Peso)
PhP 1620.00 Travel Tax
PhP 750.00 Airport Users Charge
That's a total of PhP 2370.00 collected from every passenger that departs Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
Question: Saan ba talaga napupunta ang mga kinokolekta? (Where do the collections really go?)
If we can't even have working surveillance cameras at the luggage area - presumably an important area since any detonation devices might be hidden in separate parts in the luggage of would-be terrorists - how can we convince foreigners that they are safe to travel here? If something did happen in this area - again, salamat (thank you) Claudine - where would we get a recorded visual of the event?
It may be time - long overdue, actually - for the government to just forego those fees. Mukhang di naman ginagamit sa nararapat na gamit at paraan. (It doesn't seem like the fees are used to purchase the right materials or is being used correctly.)
Calling on Sec. Mar Roxas of the DOTC (Department of Transportation and Communication) and the airport management, can you kindly clarify just how those fees are spent?
And now, in honor of you, Claudine, I'm posting a picture that's also going viral on Facebook. (Chun-Li has nothing on you, you should've been the lone female character in Street Fighter II.)
Street Fighter II would have gotten more sales here.
