Ano magandang pabili sa USA na wala pa dito? Please help
« on: October 04, 2011, 11:12:21 am »
Kunwari meron kayo friend or relative coming from USA/UK na pauwi sa pinas.

Ano ipapabili mo na item na wala pa dito? parang halos lahat meron na kasi.

You can suggest more than one.

Nagpabili ako ng netbook dun. Significantly mura ang selling price compared sa same model nya dito.

^^even meron dito but it's relatively cheaper sa US especially if it's US brand.. like Tory Burch, Victoria Secret, Bath and Body Works, Coach.. o kaya A&F/Hollister clothings, Ralph Lauren.. I know meron sa atin but it's cheaper there.. and i think the latest models..  ;) ;)

yes, definitely US brands.  those in my list would be:

- Clinique make-up, some skincare not necessarily formulated for asian skin
- Victoria's Secret (i just don't trust resellers here, otherwise they are very expensive and you can get discounts in the US)
- Tiffany & Co (this is still pricey in HK or SG so better buy in the US)
- Pandora (definitely 40% more expensive here in Asia than in US)
- Aldo & Aerosoles

all other brands like Gap, Banana Rep, etc..

Also, yung mga soap ng olay or dove, pati mga moisturizer ng olay. Minsan, iba yung ingredients dito compared sa andun. If you want to try them out, pabili ka ng mga toiletries.

The usual pasalubong I ask are the newest scents ng VS and Nine West na booties or pumps.  Pag merong ganito, solved na ako.
If it is meant to be, it will be...

Mostly meron na dito sa greenhills or SNR mga costco goods. Mataas konti presyo.

What about items na wala pa talaga dito that you desire to have? Ano wishlist mo?

bath soaps- relatives always send soaps in packs kaya sulit, hinde lang paisa-isa

Bath and Body Works products - hand soap, lotion, bath gel

mac laptop - if you're planning to buy a mac laptop, ok magpabili especially when you have a relative still studying or working in a university. they give out big discounts to students and professors

coffee - I love imported coffee! local coffee is blah for me

swiss miss or any hot chocolate - same reason as coffee

nyx products - i discovered nyx years ago when my officemate gave me this as a pasalubong when she went to the states. though there are already some resellers here in the philippines, their make up is dirt cheap! hinde nakakahiyang magpabili kahit ilang colors pa ang ipabili mo. hehe!  ;D

chocolates - never ito nawawala sa isang balikbayan box. staple item!

bath towels - maganda ang quality ng imported towels, ang kapal pa

bed sheets/linen - same as towel, maganda quality ng bed sheets nila

Mostly variants of popular brands that are not available here, i.e. Pink Pomegranate facial wash of Neutrogena, Sally Hansen in-shower hair removal, TRESSeme hair products. At least i'm not on the mercy of P&G Philippines or other distributors na kung ano lang nandito eh yun lang gagamitin ko.

My aunties always asks for dried fruits whenever we send a balikbayan box. Like applie chips, prunes, dried cranberries and peaches. I also send dishwashing liquid since it gets so cheap when on sale, $.50 cents lang! And then the usual, Olay soaps, VS, BBW, branded bags and makeups.

Signatured bags and perfumes. Meron dito pero cheaper dun and mga gadgets. Sa UK naman super mura ang marks and spencer pag nagsale. Makakabili ka ng 50pesos na undergarments! Pati din mga debenhams pag nag sale. Madalas silang mag sale sa UK. Thorntons chocolates din sa UK :)

i'm usually content with lots of dried fruit and nuts! -- apricot, dates, fig, cranberry, macadamia, almonds, walnuts, pistachios, etc.. yum. sarap ihalo sa lutuin or for snacking.

a nice smokey old-fashioned country ham. :)

sugar-free chocolate -- very limited kasi ang available options sa pilipinas. great for the figure-conscious, or the elderly/diabetics with a sweet tooth.
