We aren't asking for gifts, but if you're ever interested in sending us a gift that doesn't have to be send by package you can always feel free to send us digitial gifts. We both love to read using our Kindles. You could send us (by email) a digital gift card for Amazon so we can have credit to buy books to read. We also enjoy music. You could also send us a digital gift card for iTunes. If you don't want to gift a specific gift card you could always send a Visa or Mastercard digital gift card.
If you're interested in sending care packages to us while we're in the Philippines we'd be more than happy to receive them. It's so much fun to get a package and get gifts from back home. Sending packages can get extremely expensive. The best method of sending packages is via Balikbayan Box, which you can find at your local Asian markets. It's a flat rate box that comes by ship. You can get a balikbayan box from the market, then take it home and fill it up and take it back to the market to send. It takes 2-4 months to arrive, but it's worth the wait. If you do send us a package please send us the tracking number so we can make sure it arrives.
Some things that we enjoy receiving are American non-perishable foods that we cannot get in the Philippines, crafts and little gifts for the girls, used books, used devotionals, used school books and workbooks (Chloe is currently in preschool), pencils, crayons, paintbrushes, other art supplies, etc.
We currently are in the U.S. so you don't need to send a care package yet. We will add our new address once we move back to the Philippines.
We also enjoy getting phone calls and video calls from our friends. We have the ability to receive phone calls, texts (iMessage), FaceTime calls and Skype calls. It might be a good idea to talk to us about a phone or video call so you don't catch us at a bad time. Please remember that if you do call us when we're in the Philippines we are 12 or 13 hours (Eastern Time) ahead of you (depending on daylight savings). Our current info is:
We really enjoy getting correspondence from you. It's always a special treat to receive letters, cards, emails, etc. from friends around the world. Chloe loves to get mail as well. If you're interested in sending something feel free to send it. Our current info is:
