We got our balikbayan box today from the U.S. full of goodies like Mikey Butos!
I especially like the big plastic bags of my favorite peppered beef jerky!  :)

Lucky you Art - enjoy! Unfortunately some of us are senders not receivers.

Do you have an annual shopping list for your family back in the USA? Something to bear in mind when we have relocated and can't find certain luxuries from our own country.

The table has turned for us and my in-laws, because when they were still in the Philippines before they came to the U.S., we were the ones sending them balikbayan boxes every year for Xmas with all the goodies and now that we retired in the Philippines and they in the U.S., they are now sending us balikbayan boxes.
For me, it was my favorite beef jerky which is hard to find here in the Philippines that makes me happy. 
So, no list Paul! Just my beef jerky!  ::) :o ;)

We shipped 3 boxes on October 12.  I'm still waiting for them to arrive.   :(

Wait!  Glo just called Forex and we were advised to expect our boxes any day now!   :) :) :)
