Pasalubong. Balakbayan box. Padala. New and fascinating words (to me, at least). You’ll hear them in episode 5 when the guys open doors to Filipino gifting and broader Pinoy culture. Malaysian marketing to the Middle East and perceived harmony in Vietnam regardless whether you’re Muslim, Thai, Chinese or anything else are also covered.
