Filipinos are known to be generous and thoughtful, that’s why wherever part of the world they may be, they don’t forget their loved ones left in the Philippines. Thanks to technology, we can keep in touch with each other and the misery that comes with distance is somehow alleviated. From time to time, our loved ones in the US always remembers to send a little something for relatives here in the Philippines, hence, the emergence of Balikbayan Box. For those who aren’t familiar, the box is full of imported goodies, new and used clothes, imported chocolates, Spam (not the email kind, hehe), sausages, perfumes, toys and other things for your whole Filipino clan.
And here’s the fun krrunch part, opening the box! Let’s begin the Krrunch time at home…
Hmmm, let’s see! A Tommy jacket for the little one, shoes for the outdoors and more clothes inside…. I’m looking for more….
You must agree with me, balikbayan boxes should not be called balikbayan boxes without chocolates and imported canned goods, right? But wait, let’s play a game, let’s spot one of my fave things, P-R-I-N-G-L-E-S! I know its hidden somewhere…
Oh wow! Finding Pringles inside a balikbayan box adds more krrunch, krrunch-ier eh?
Of course, no amount of balikbayan box can replace the presence of our loved ones but inside the box overflowing with goodies, comes also their overflowing love, hugs and kisses for their dearest loved ones in the Philippines.
It’s Krrunch Time, get Playful!
