When my brother came home a few months back, we welcomed him with a care box of Filipino grocery items. It contains his favorite chichirya, Boy Bawang, Century Tuna, Lucky Me Pansit Canton, Purefoods Corned Beef, Taba ng Talangka, Reno Liver Spread, Chocnut, Flat Tops, just to name a few. It's practically a sari-sari store in a box.
Long story short, he wanted to travel light and decided to leave the box behind. He only took a few items with him. The noodles and some of the canned goods are still in the pantry as I write. Oh well...it's the thought that counts.
