    2. Mawawala pa kaya bed bug mark sa skin kapag nakamot na? Yung akin kasi nakamot na :(

  2. Sana hindi ito yung bug na nagiiwan ng maitim na marka.

    1. Ngkakapeklat siguro lalo na kung kinakamot pero hindi naman siguro maitim na marka.

    2. Unfortunately iyan nga yun. Had that when I stayed sa isang dormitory before. Ilang months bago nawala yung dark marks.

      Delete
    3. Hindi yata. Eto yung maumbok at makati.

    4. In my case, it left a black mark. Years na pero kita pa rin ang ebidensya.

    5. Sakin hindi nagleave ng mark may binigay na cream yung doctor

    1. Pinoy mentality! I’m well-travelled and never experienced sabotahe ... isip ng pinoy talaga! Maitim choose a good hotel read reviews Kung mayvowra choose 5 star hotel Susme

      Delete
    2. I am half-Taiwanese and I can assure Taiwanese people are very nice to tourists. Nagkataon lang na hindi well-cleaned ang hotel na tinuluyan nila. Like 7:42 said, read hotel reviews or choose a 5-star hotel to avoid that kind of experience.

      Delete
    3. sa pagpunta punta ko ng Taiwan for R&R ,wala pa akong na experience na ganyan. Kasi just like here in the Phils, may mga lugar na magaganda, at hindi magaganda. Makikita mo yan labas pa lang ng hotel. So doon ka sa high end, hindi sa part na yan.

      Delete
  4. me pera nmn sila bat sa pipitsuging hotel nagpunta,

    1. Ang bed bugs kahit sa five star hotel walang pinipili. FYI!

      Delete
    2. 12:39 girl that’s not the point....

      Delete
    3. Just checked the hotel online. It was actually rated 4 stars so this is quite surprising. A lot of good reviews din from different websites.

      Delete
    4. 12:39 ewan ko sayo!

      Delete
    5. Yeah I saw that hotel and it is cheap. Even the location is not high end.Kadaming first class hotels sa taiwan my gosh

      Delete
    6. 1:02do not be deceived by photos.Ive seen that hotel nasa low end district ng taiwan.Bakit nga sila dyan??? Daming high end na hotel sa kabilang part.

      Delete
    7. 12:48 anung walang pinipili? Kapag laging nililinis ang bed mawawala ang surot. Ngayon kung sa mumurahing hotel malamang hindi naglilinis ng bed . Iba parin kapag mamahalin. Maraming staffs na naglilinis

      Delete
    8. Agency naman ang pumili niyan. Probably told the group of 40 that it’s a good hotel etc and most likely charged them a lot. Kaya nga better to go free and easy than get a group tour na dadalhin ka lang sa mga tourist trap. Mahirap, but with the help of technology (google maps, google translate), it can be done.

      Delete
    9. 4:19yes they should blame the agency kasi kahit pagdating pa lang nila doon sana nagreklamo agad sila bakit ganun yung lugar sa labas ng hotel parang low end.

      Delete
    10. 12:39 feeling mo sa bedbugs may trivago na namimili ng hotel na mura para bahayan? Haha

      Delete
    11. gusto mo ng siguradong malinis, doon ka sa mahalya

      Delete
    12. its just like any other place, like in the US, may mga lugar na tulad ng Beverly Hills, meron din Bronx. So sila Sunshine napunta sa Bronx.Ganun lang yon.

      Delete
  5. I experienced the same thing in HK. I told the management and ang sinagot ba naman sa akin ay normal daw sa HK ang bedbugs 🙄

    1. Imbes na mag-sorry o bigyan ng solusyon?

    2. If you paid with a CREDIT CARD..Visa, Amex Discover or Mastercard..you could have disputed it and got your money back. You have rights pag credit card ang binayad mo especially if you made the hotel aware of the issue but they still failed to rectify it. Guys, always pay with a credit card!! And I think booking hotels through Expedia..they will also help you in these kjnd of horrible situations.

    3. Pag ako yan away mapapala nila reklamo talaga ako pag makati kati

  6. Next time mag book ka sa sosyal na hotel hindi sa mga pipichugin. Makareklamo

    1. Duh basa basa din. Kahit sa mamahaling hotel meron din bed bugs.

      Delete
    2. 12:40 oh my... I pity your mentality. Not because mura ang Hotel kailangan bed bug infested. It doesn’t take Sosyal hotel para makatulog ng maayos habang nagttravel. Cheap or Expensive hotel should be clean period.

      Delete
    3. 12:40 kakaiba ka din! Nagmalasakit na mga ang tao ganyan pa utak mo Tsk

      Delete
    4. Dapat utak nito ang kinakagat ng bed bugs para naman gumana

      Delete
    5. This is so correct! Ive been to Taiwan so many times yung ibang hotels maganda lang po sa picture.Like this one even the location is not in the high end district.You get what you pay for

      Delete
    6. Ang sinasabi ng commenter 12:40 sa totoo lang minsan kaya mura wala silang 5 star service that you are expecting.E parang motmot yan sa atin e.Ive seen that place in Taiwan.Kadaming high end na lugar, not this one.

      Delete
    7. True! When I travelled in Taiwan I stayed in Hyatt

      Delete
    8. Ay wow kumo di 5-star eh acceptable na yung bed bugs? Galing utak mo noh

      Delete
    9. Hotel I work for here in the US is ranked 4 star diamond and we still get bed bugs my dear.

      Delete
    10. 12:40 You probably don’t travel a lot, if at all. Mabuti pa yun nalang ang problemahin mo. Tapos, pg dumating na ang time na maka tikim ka ng travel at ma-bed bug ka, tignan natin kung anong sasabihin mo.

      Delete
    11. tama hahaha cheapipay na hotel sa chipipay na place. tapos ineexpect walang bedbugs?

      Delete
    12. sa labas pa lang ng hotel, makikita mo na kung ano yung lugar. Hindi ba sila nagtaka, malapit sa palengke at rinig mo MRT? kaloka.

      Delete
    13. yung mga online search engine ng mga cheap hotels kung minsan yung paglalagay ng stars hindi accurate, dapat search mo by price. Kasi pano kung 4 star hotel ka nga, pero sa alanganing lugar tulad nyang kila sunshine. Or sa malabundok na pala yung hotel mo kaya mura.So better check the address itself kung saan ba yang location.

  7. Ewan ko ba pero ako i dont like traveling to countries na may republic of china. Sorry chinese friends pero parang ang baba ng tingin sa pinoy lagi ng mga tao dun

    6. I've been to Taiwan at sobrang babait nga mga Taiwanese. to the extent na sinabayan pa kami ng matanda at apo nya sa destination namin.

      Delete
    7. 12:52 I get what you mean, and I’m Filipino-Chinese.. pero just to share.. iba ang ugali ng mga Taiwanese from Mainland Chinese. Mas matino naman ang Taiwan and mga Taiwanese. If you don’t understand the language, it does seem like they’re always angry so the trick there is to be polite and huwag lang sila personalin

      Delete
    8. Half-Taiwanese here. Taiwanese people hates China so please wag nang idikit sila sa China. Taiwanese people are very nice and I can attest to that.

    9. Sanay sa tourists ang mga tao sa taiwan para silang japan.Mabait sila nagkamali lang ng pavpili ng hotel itong group ni Sunshine.

    10. yes just like in the Philippines, may high end na mga lugar at may low end na mga lugar. Sana sa the Grand Hotel Taipei sila nag check in parang palasyo para sigurado sila.

      Delete
    11. Taiwanese people identify themselves as more Japanese than Chinese. Napansin ko rin yan, mas tahimik and cultured sila compared sa taga mainland China. I have a Taiwanese coworker and is very nice.

  8. Yaiks, that's disgusting! And the scary thing is, you just need one hitch hiker mama surot to get your house infested. They can feel your warmth and drop from the ceilings, hide in the smallest of places, and they can survive months without food!!! That's why it's scary to stay in hotels they will hitch hike in your luggage or clothes.

    1. i brought home some imported surot from LA. i stayed in a posh hotel in downtown beverly hills (the company paid for it or else i couldn’t and wouldn’t stay there if i had to use my own money) and had the mistake of laying my luggage on the carpet. the mama hitched hike all the way to Pinas, took time breeding its evil spawns, and by the time i found out they were having a nest under my bed. it took floor to ceiling vacuuming, several hot laundry of all bed linens including all my clothes and almost a kilo of diatomaceous earth to kill all the fucker suckers. and oh i imprisoned like the biggest 5 inside a ziploc and placed it in a jar to find out if it can really survived without feeding. the suckers were still alive after 2 months and then they went starving and shrunk afterwards. so there

    3. 4:48 Iyong bedbug surot po. Maitim, parang maliit na ipis, medyo hawig din itsura sa garapata. Iyong flea po, pulgas and mas common sa pusa. Maliit po ang flea, pero antaas tumalon. We used to bath our dogs and cats before with malathion to get rid of these parasites.

    2. Okay ang review sa hotel sa Tripadvisor. No reklamo of bedbugs.

    3. Still this is not a first class hotel and the district where it is located is not high end.Ive been to better districts in taiwan na mas high end.They should have done their research.

    4. Ive seen that place.It is affordable because it is not in the high end district of taiwan.Parang mga motmot yan kung dito sa atin.

    5. Panget po lugar sa labas ng hotel na yan at maingay.Parang palengke at mrt station.Wag kayo dyan may iba pang mas magaganda.Sino ba nagbook sa kanilang lahat?

  10. I always go on TripAdvisor and Agoda etc to look for reviews reporting bedbugs before I book a hotel...so sad this had to happen to Sunshine and crew. Belo treatment to the max need niya ngayon

    1. Trip advisor would show you the inside of the room.What you should check is the premises outside.Kung saang part yan Because Ive seen that place.It is not in the high end part or the central business district part of taiwan.Malayo yan.

      Delete
    2. Mas maganda kung may kakilala kayo sa lugar na pupuntahan nyo ipa occular nyo muna bago kayo magbook.Kasi the website will only show you the inside of the room.What about the outside? Mamaya panget na lugar yan himdi mo nakita

  11. Also once you’ve entered the room check bed corners and under the mattress for bedbugs and their droppings...even the closets...and don’t set your luggage on the floor if you can

    1. If the room is infested it makes no difference what else you do. The pests can hide everywhere and will get into everything.

    1. That’s insane. My limit is 4 when travelling. More than that is asking for lots of headaches. The point of travelling is to be away from the usual crowd.

    2. I think it is an organized tour na sinalihan nila.

    3. 8:30am. Mga kaibigan nya at pamilya ng kaibigan nya ang kasama nila sa tour. Some are familiar faces na nakatira pa sa Ayala Alabang Village.

    4. Magreklamo na dapat sila sa travel agency kung bakot doon sila nilagay.Kwestyunable din kasi sa akin yung lugar mismo.I mean yung sa labas.Daming high end na lugar sa taiwan.

    5. yes, dapat sa kanila binook sa Daan District in Taipei para mukhang BGC or Makati, this is the high end part.

      Delete
    6. Yes Ive been there at hindi ito ang buisness district ng Taiwan.Dapat sa daan district ka mag check in kung gusto mo mala bgc or makati ang surroundings

  15. Hmmm...the bed bugs are now on their clothes and luggage and hitching a ride to pinas.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Just remember the name of the hotel guys, kapag may bed bugs that means to say, Hindi maganda ang cleaning maintenance ng hotel at the same time yung beddings definitely matagal na kaya tinirhan na ng mga bugs. Better na yung mga dala nilang gamit especially the luggage bags , kapag nakabalik na ng pilipinas, eh palinis muna kasi malamang may nadala ka na rin na bugs.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Do not rely on pictures of the hotel.Kindly check the address, the exact location.Magtaka kung bakit mura.Google the premises.Find something at par with your standards

    ReplyDelete
  18. Natural na mag book sila kung asan din nag book ang mga kaibigan nya. Five star hotel or not, walang excuse para galisin ka sa hotel na yan. This hotel has good reviews online and nasa tourist district.

    1. no it is not in a tourist district, Ive seen that hotel, labas pa lang hindi na high end. Pati mga katabing lugar kaya wag mag imbento kung hindi ka pa nakakapunta. Motmot yan sa atin e.

    2. Blame it on the travel agency.Dapat dinescribe nila sunshine kung anong parte ng taiwan ang gusto nila makita dahil baka sinabi nila market kaya dyan sila binook.Sana sinabi nila we want fancy and high end side of town dahil malayo yan sa napuntahan nila.

  19. The hotel should shoulder the expenses dahil mahal ang ointments at antibiotics! Tssk.

  20. Wag magpaloko online sa mga pictures.Kung may mga kakilala kayo sa lugar na yan, mag occular muna bago kayo pumunta.Mas importante na makita nyo po ang lugar sa labas aside from the room itself.Kung maayos bang lugar yan ganyan.

  23. It's not a super cheap hotel. My friends and I stayed at the same hotel and they got the same bites except for me. We all thought it was caused by bed bugs (but i was doubtful since I didn't have a single bite and I slept in the same bed with one who got bitten) but after having it checked by a dermatologist, we found out that there are these tiny insects that cause these bites when you visit hot and humid areas in taiwan (for us it was when we visited shifen falls). 3 of my friends who got bitten were wearing shorts and I was wearing pants- the reason i was spared. I guess they should probably have it checked first before jumping to any conclusions.

  24. We were in Taiwan last December. Stayed in a simple hotel. But it was very clean. I don't think kailangan 1st class or expensive ang hotel para lang hindi ka ilagay sa peligro ng kagat ng surot. Basic human right naman na makatulog ka sa gabi ng safe kahit pa mura or mahal ang binayad mo.

  25. surot bites are always in 3s
