But before that happened there were troves of fans that wanted to have a picture taken with her. Since she was nice to her fans, she obliged to have their pictures taken with her. Her passport was kept in a leather case that looks like a thick wallet. She just placed it on top of all her things inside her hand carried bag while entertaining fans.
‘Una, nandun kami ’tapos may mga nagpapa-picture, siksikan. ’Tapos parang sabi ko ba’t ang dikit nila sa akin? Sabi ko, sige ate picture. ’Yun pala kinuha na ’yung passport ko.
‘Wala na ’yung passport ko noong dinukot ko sa bag ko eh nakapatong lang iyon, kabibigay lang ni Ate Portia(handler ni Kim) sa akin,’ Kim said.
‘Hinanap namin isang oras, tatlong oras, ’tapos nag-status ako sa BBM (Blackberry Messenger) ko na nawawala ’yung passport ko, ang daming nag-react.’
‘Si Ate Kris (Aquino) tinulungan ako,’ that was the time people working in Terminal 1 helped her look for her passport. And luckily a person from janitorial service found her passport inside one of the garbage bin in the terminal and gave it back to her. Kim embraced the personnel in joy and thanked the people at the airport for their effort in helping her find her passport.
She still made it to her flight and is now in the US for the Star Magic Concert!
