P30M worth of smuggled onions, ginger seized

30 containers filled of onions and two more with ginger was intercepted at the Manila International Container Port. The shipment came from India, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

Well, we need rice not onions. Sheesh even smuggling can’t even get it right. Maybe that’s why this shipment was caught. But seriously, how can you expect to offload that much onions here? Maybe if it were rice, then it would be possible. But a garnish?

Officials should check each and every container to make sure that there aren’t any contrabands inside, like a sports car or something. But then again, I don’t think you can wash off the stink of an onion smelling sports car. Even worse it could be decaying. Ewwww.
