What will I ask my parents to bring here in the US?

Filed: IR-5 Country: Philippines

If I am not mistaken, they are allowed 50 lbs X 2 for each person. For both of them, that means 4 X 50 lbs boxes to fill! I understand we can buy many items in a local Filipino store but I am thinking of cheaper things to buy in the Philippines rather than here in the us. These are some things I have in mind:

  • The infamous TABO for them to use since I already have mine.
  • Tawas roll on. I like the solid roll-on type from Thailand.
  • 10 flip flops for visitors at home (not sure if these cost less)
  • Saffron powder for the Arroz Caldo
  • Sinigang mix
  • Our Magic Sing Karaoke mics at home
  • Dried mangoes

What else can you add to the list?
