Aside from that, her baggage was also over-sized. It attracted lots of attention, her colleagues had no choice but to report and do a check on her. Turns out, she brought some stacks of foreign currency and lots of sanitary pads. It was a huge misunderstanding from the management but they had to make sure when their staff’s integrity is in question.
