What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday: Travel "Pasalubongs"


We, Filipinos, have the tradition of bringing back gifts to give away when they travel.  These gifts are called "pasalubong" ("salubong" means meeting someone coming from a trip).  So on my "desk" today (which is actually a hotel side table) are some little zippered coin purses which I bought today as "pasalubongs."   Can you guess where I am?  Here's another clue...


I'll be linking up with all the other people showing off their desks in What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (their desks usually have some great arts and crafts works in progress, unlike mine this week)!

I am in awe of the photo. I have NO idea where you are, but it looks like either China or maybe Cambodia. Of course, I'm simply no good with geography. Happy WOYWW from #7.

mmmm looks like Thailand although I've never been. What a lovely thought your little pasalubongs - in England we have a tradition of when you give someone a purse you have to put a coin in it so it will never be empty (I think it has to be a silver coin). Enjoy your holiday x
