Honeybun’s sister just arrived from France and she brought me some goodies:

- truffles (which melted into one big mass of chocolatey goodness)
- a bar of dark chocolate with orange rind (no photo coz I was so excited to taste it and then next thing I knew it was gone)
- a huge bar of nougat with pistachio nuts

The good news is that she’s got some more for me (like chocolate-covered coconut shreds), but I have to wait for Christmas. I feel like a kid.

Oche, Honeybun’s distant relative (LOLers), also just arrived after spending some time in Malaysia, and she also got me some pasalubong:

- orange ginger candy

- these sweet squid flakes

- an assortment of dried fruits

I really love balikbayans!
