Welcomed by an anxious mob of media and curious airport employees, Bektas arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport via an Emirates flight at 5 p.m. Friday, escorted by airline security from the plane to a waiting hotel service car.

Accused of beating and verbally abusing his wife, a

timid Bektas obliged to answer a few questions from reporters.

“I miss my kids and I miss my wife and I'm gonna see her, I'm gonna see my kids,” said Bektas, between walking and looking out for his suitcase.

“I'm gonna lose my suitcase,” he then said, as photographers continued to flick the shutter.

Asked whether there was still a chance for him and Gutierrez to get back together, Bektas said: “Yes, that's why I'm here.”

Bektas, who once had harsh words for his wife at the height of their feud, said he will stay in the Philippines for “maybe 10 days” or “until I'm gonna get Ruffa's heart back.”

He said he last talked to his wife the night before his flight.

And then he stopped before the baggage conveyor and again looked for his suitcase.

“Now I don't know where my suitcase is,” said Bektas, wearing a black coat over a crisp white shirt and jeans.

More from Malaya:
Asked if he is optimistic about a reconciliation, Bektas said: "Of course. I will not stop until I got through Ruffa’s heartbreak."

Asked if he is on good terms with Annabelle Rama, his mother-in-law, Bektas said, "No comment."

Bektas said the first thing he intends to do is kiss his kids.

"What about Ruffa?" he was asked.

"Yes, what about Ruffa, I’m asking you?" he shot back. "Let’s see what will gonna happen."
