It’s my daughters birthday in a few weeks and she told me: “mom, can you tell the boys to send me care package for my birthday”
So, when I was skyping with one of them earlier I told him “your sister just wants a care package for her birthday. So, please. please send her one. She’s been missing you guys a lot lately so don’t forget to send her something on her birthday”
But I made sure he knows what a care package is. You know how boys are.
“Do you know what a care package is?”
“Ano yun” (just to make sure he really knows what it is)
– “yung mga sabon”
“Anong mga sabon? Bakit mga sabon? Get a small box and fill it up with small random stuff that she likes. Like her favorite chocolates there. You know her favorite chocolates, di ba. Some trinkets, maybe a nice pen, she likes pens, basta small random stuff.”
– “yun nga, like mga sabon!”
Ano yan balikabayan box. Samahan mo na rin kaya ng toothpaste, spam and Taster’s choice.
