What to bring?



Before I left to go on my holiday, I was wondering what to bring the bf's family as
pasalubong. If I was going to see my Auntie in the UK, this would've been easy. But as I have no idea what can be found in Guam, I was a bit worried.

But at least I knew they wanted ensaymada, so I packed them a box of it.

As for everything else, I've done a little guesswork on the Filipino food aisle in the supermarket --

I like tarts, so I hoped they would like them too.

I wasn't sure about Otap (flaky pastry sprinkled with sugar) -- I think people who come from the south are the ones allowed to bring these in, but I didn't care.

I hadn't tried this brand of Polvoron (it's some kind of powdered sweet) before, but the bf couldn't stop eating them when I got took it out, so it must be good.

Of course, Filipino brand peanut chocolate (our version of Reese' Peanut Butter cups, harhar) might be a little unconventional but would probably be looked forward to by the younger peeps.


So in the end, I just bought whatever I saw. Hee!

Have you guys got any idea what I could bring next time? Nothing too stinky, please, and no dried mangoes as those are so common.

My relatives in the US always crave for "adobong mani" (peanuts). The ones from a stall in Landmark, to be more specific. You could try bringing some next time. A bit space-consuming though, coz they're in chunky, round plastic bottles
