Pasalubong

Every time you visit a new place, family and friends expect you to bring souvenirs or popularly known as “pasalubong” from the place you visited, like food, shirts, keychains, etc. This makes them feel like they have also been to that place. This is also very common to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) from whom families expect what is called “package” which could include international brands of shampoos, chocolates, or anything that could only be found in that foreign country. This is very common during Christmas season and New Year.
