I remember just years ago our family was one of the beneficiary of the many balikbayan boxes sent to us by our in-laws. I can’t forget the excitement and giggles of my kids everytime a balikbayan box is delivered to our doorstep. The chocolates, toys, folgers coffee, peanut butter, lotions, corned beefs and of course spam. Just like the lyrics in the balikbayan box video, nag-amoy imported bahay namin.

Since we moved to the US last year, it is our turn to send Forex balikbayan boxes back home. I can just imagine the smiles in the faces of our nephews and nieces everytime they open their Forex balikbayan box. With the current economic situation in the US coupled with the weakening of the dollar, I understand that our kababayans cannot send balikbayan boxes as often as they want to.

But even in diffucult times, Filipinos will still be sending balikbayan box to their families in the Philippines no matter what. The practice is already part of every Filipino. But believe me when I say everytime they send a balikbayan box to their loved ones, it is not just not the gifts and pasalubongs but the love that goes with every Forex balikbayan box that is sent home.
