I’m making a list of items I like as pasalubong from the Philippines, just so I have a quick reference when someone asks. Please feel free to add, links welcome.
Pasalubong from the Philippines
Mangosteen Jam by Kablon Farms
Carabao milk pastillas - we received a couple boxes of the DVF ones from my aunt and uncle and they were delicious, soft and creamy. The bad thing about it is that it only lasts for about a week, so you either be a pig and eat it all or freeze what’s left over so you can have them again.
Moby chocolate curls
Taba ng Talangka
the ubiquitous dried mango
What the heck, this is my pasalubong when I go to the Philippines.
Hanes t-shirts - my dad’s bilin and I get some for the male family members because they love how the US hanes shirts get very thin they go a bit see through. This is terrific when its hot and humid its like walking around without a shirt but you get (1) some degree of decency and (2) something to wick sweat off your skin
I’ll organize this better later, and maybe add some links if I have them.
