Pasalubong

Posted by AngColette on January 9, 2012

“The word is Tagalog, literally meaning “[something] meant for you when you welcome me back. -Wikipedia.

It’s a pretty nice gesture when it all comes down to it, since you are welcoming me back from my journey, I got a little something for you. It’s not necessarily a Filipino thing to bring pasalubong, it’s just a really nice Tagalog word, and who doesn’t like receiving something from another place.

My wife’s cousin recently just came back from the Philippines and brought back some pasalubong. A box of “panutsa” (similar to peanut brittle but with less sugar and more peanuts) and a several copies of  Food Tour by Claude Tayag. The “panutsa’ is finished, but I’m not yet done with the book. I however have some extra copies of the Food Tour book. We might have them available at our next kapaMEALya event, so let us know if you’re interested in borrowing or buying one.
