My Balikbayan Box Is Full

Balikbayan Box Singapore
Two weeks ago, I went to the Post Office to buy a box to send a package in the Philippines.  My sister in the UK sent a package to me a month ago and it includes a shoe for her daughter.  Because of that, I have to send the shoe to the Philippines.  I have then decided to send a big package for my family, my advance Christmas gifts.  Anyway, the box that I bought in Singpost was a bit big and they don't have free pick-up service.  I have to carry the box all the way to the Post Office.  That is very toxic!

Anyway, I did the alternative.  I went to Lucky Plaza and bought a medium box which only costs 50 Singapore Dollars inclusive of pick-up and delivery to the Philippines.  Isn't that cool?  And they also have a free packaging tape.

Last week, I was able to buy some goodies at Giants and this weekend I have pushed myself to fill up the whole box.  Yesterday, I went to the Giordano Warehouse in Paya Lebar.  I only bought four items since most of the items aren't that nice and some have defects.  And today I went to Fair Price to buy some toiletries, chocolates and even kitchen towels.  Thanks Chona for the kitchen towel tip.

Since I only bought a few items at the Giordano Warehouse Sale, after the mass this evening I went to Orchard to buy more Giordano items.  I was able to complete my list.  Sadly, my mom's and dad's pants sizes aren't available.  They are too big for Singapore size I think.

My last stop was North Point in Yishun.  I bought first a pentel pen then lastly went to the toy store to buy some goodies for my two angel nieces.  I hope they will like it.  Anyway, I arrived home around 10 P.M. then had my dinner.  After my late dinner, I labelled every item with names.  I think I'm all set.  My package is for collection on Tuesday and according to them their schedule of shipment is every Monday.

I better sleep now.
