We Filipinos love to travel and explore the wonders of the places we go to - its culture, its scenery, and its people. We try to document our trip as much as we can with hundreds of pictures and videos. Then we post them in our Facebook and Instagram pages to share our experience with our family and friends.
However, mere photos and videos are not enough to contain our amazement. We Filipinos love to keep a memorabilia of the places that we go to and we bring them home to remind us of our heavenly experience in our travels and to share with our love ones the spirit and sensation of the places we have been. But how exactly do we do this?
We bring PASALUBONG, of course!
What is pasalubong in English? Pasalubong in English is a "homecoming gift". It is something that every Filipino traveler gives to his family and friends back home from a place or places he has been to. Bringing Pasalubong has always been a tradition. It does not only symbolize sharing of our travel experience but also to let them know that we remember them during the adventure.
For Filipinos who work or live away from their families, especially those from abroad, this gesture of bringing pasalubong represents the sweet reunion and gladness of being back home.
Pasalubong can be of any items and are handy. It may be a special treat or delicacy from the place. It may also be clothing like shirts and caps or other stuff like key chains, refrigerator magnets, purse, mugs, etc. with name of the place printed on them.
Pasalubong items can be bought just almost anywhere since they are usually available at mall kiosks. Some places they have their designated pasalubong centers.
However, most of the time, travelers are just too exhausted with the trip that they barely have the time and energy to go to stores to buy pasalubong. Or sometimes, back home, they realize they did not buy enough of that best pastry they have ever tasted from their trip.
