I am remembering first time I seeing this box, when I am small girl my friend Josephine mother is work abroad. So much excite the family is feel when the balikbayan box is come. They waiting full family there when they opening. Sometime they calling their friend to see also. That how I seeing it. Josephine is call me say Sally come see it so exciting. When they opening box it is smelling so good. Then Josephine is tell me that the smell of abroad. I never smelling abroad before and I thinking what this place abroad that smelling so good? But when I is going abroad it not smelling like that. For me it only smelling kitchen and bathroom smell.
My maam is giving me her and children old clothes for sending to family. She saying Sally if you want take. if you not want give me I putting in box at Choitram. I always taking because someone in family is wearing. Maam clothes is all nice thing I not knowing why she throwing. She saying Sally this tshirt is stretch. Sally this tshirt faded. I not see stretch or fade. I only see thing I can put in box.
I telling maam I am wanting to send tv to my family. Maam is saying sally why you doing that? it so expensive to ship tv. I telling her I want surprise my family. I want tv to be deliver and they is open door and get so excite. Maam saying Sally what if tv is break when you ship? Then it not good. I also now is scare if it break. then my heart also is break.
When my balikbayan box is get full I sending all these thing to my family. I sending my heart to my family.
