Padala nga...

Dear Mouse,

Puwedeng magpadala ?

This is a request that Filipinos get from kababayans, kapamilya and opismeyts the moment they hear that you are going home to RP.

Frat has to turn down the requests even for a small envelope.

A sample and more here.

Padala One:

"Mel, isang LETTER envelope lang. kailangang kailangan ng aking mother this envelope." Dating si envelope. Yes, it was a small letter envelope, but the envelope is taped to a shoe box, which weight at least five pounds, because there are at least four big bottles of Calcium supplementary tablets inside.

NO.... SORRY, I CANNOT TAKE THAT!!!!

Kayo may padala? May balikbayan box ako.Huwag lang barbell at bricks.

Ako iba ang experience ko. Me ipinadala sa akin. Tinanggap ko naman kasi yung nagpadala, matalik na kaibigan. Ang kaso yung kukuha ng padala ang may problema. Gusto niya dalhin ko yung padala sa kanilang bahay. At eto pa ang sinabi ng pinadalhan. "Dalawang linggo na pala kayo sa Pilipinas, bakit ngayon niyo lang dinala sa amin".

Hiyang-hiya naman yung kaibigan ko pero buhat noon never na akong tumanggap ng padala.

(oo...this is still about the padala story, easy ka lang)ihave ID90, 90 pct discount with Cathay Pacific, chance pax. sorry the whole day flts to hkg is fully bkd. so no chance. i bought regular fare from cebu pacific. not bad. they even have contest inside the plane about pinoy movie and if u answer the questions, there is a gift. then they sell their shirts at USD2.00 each.(nice sales pitch)so arrvd in hkg. all my airlines flts to USA fully bkd, went to shanghai to take the flt to either SFO or LAx, still fully bkd. very hard if u are chance pax. then returned bak to hkg from shanghai, stayed at the airport overnite. no hotels available cuz there is a TOILET CONVENTION and TOY CONVENTION going on. next day thurs, went to Osaka to get flt to USA no seats available, then went to Narita to get flt to Chicago, fully bkd. finally got the flt to LAX, then the nite owl flt to Chicago,landed in Chicago at 1145pm. now i am jet lag for flying three days. next time i will just hop into the Tsunamis. oh, here is the story of the PADALA. my mother's friend called my ermat and said, "Kumadre-- small favor only. kailangan ng inaanak mo sa Tate." the PADALA arrived at the house at 330am. our security guard at the house(cuz we live in a private company compound, said the lady will not leave the gate, if i will not get the PADALA directly from her hand. GUESS WHAT????? isang sealed shoe box and inside the shoe box is another box. part of the ashes of the father of my mom's kumadre. GUESS WHAT again, my two suitcases did not show up in Chicago. i dont know where the suitcases are. my airline is looking for it. SORRY ABOUT THE ASHES. maybe i will ask my sister in law who is a chain smoker to keep all of her ashes in a container. KAAWAAN AT PATAWARIN AKO. Hmmmmmmmm!!!

Nung una at pangalawang beses na umuuwi ako, pumapayag ako sa mga padala na yan....pero noong huli, nahahalata ko na MAS MADAMI pa yung padala kesa sa mga totoong bitbit ko for myself....i learned my lesson....this time, ako na lang nakakaalam ng trips ko....

Also, ang laging tanong sa akin ng mga kababayan natin: Uuwi ka ba ulit? Kelan ka uuwi? Watch out for those questions.

Wala naman masama sa padala, ang masama kung more than 3/4ths ng dala mo eh puro PADALA. Dapat siguro I should compete with UPS, DHL and FeDex na. Mahirap pag masyado kang mabait. Umaabuso ang mga kulokoy. =)

Nung binata pa ako ako pa ang nag-ooffer sa mga close friends ko na magpadala sila lalo na yung sa mga taga probinsya. Palibhasa wala kaming probinsya naeenjoy ko yong adventure na maghanap ng bahay na paghahatiran ng padala. Pero yung mga padala pabalik dito sa Saudi ay extra careful ako, di puwede yung mga naka sealed at sobrang dami.
