Cultural Insight
John: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Camille: For those going to a distant place, it is part of the culture to ask for a pasalubong - a gift from the destination. In fact, it is almost expected of you to bring something back with you when you come back. For close friends, it might create a rift in your friendship if you do not buy anything for them.
