Travel and food are basically intertwined; when you explore a new place you also try to discover new food and other specialties in the area. More often than not, when you travel the people that you left behind would be waiting for something when you get back home.
A very Filipino attitude of showing care and generosity to your loved ones; you should never fail to give “Pasalubong”.
