beautiful but small!

These are the pasalubong that my in-laws brought 2 weeks ago.


They know how fond I am with the native slippers like these. But sad to say, they are small and I can’t use it. I asked my sister if these will fit her but she said it’s too small for her too.

So, I’ll just put these in my collection of gifts to be given away this coming Christmas.

What do you think?

I guess these are from Bicol. I had that when I was younger. The last was when I wore that for my folk dance class (PE) in college.

my mom used to wear those. it's been a long time since i've seen one of those. they're cute and pretty, and i agree, it's good to give it as a christmas present.

pasalubongs! no matter how small they are, usually are so valuable. because we look at the gesture beyond what it is.

Eds said...

@dongho: i agree with dongho. it's the thought that counts. and i asked permission naman from them kung pwedeng ibigay ko nalang sa iba instead na itago ko lang forever.

they're very pretty blue rose!!! if they're small, they'd fit me. hehe

your family is very thoughtful to bring you presents, and that is very special i think.

take care!
