My mom's loot..

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

Ever watched that episode of Friends where Chandler and Ross went to a Bed and Breakfast in Vermont? Then to make things even - Ross teaches Chandler to take what is just from the hotel? Well, I hate to admit it but I'm kinda one of those people.

Since we all pay good money for our hotels - it is just but right that we get items such as complimentary shampoos & conditioners, toothbrushes and paste, cotton buds, tissues, tea bag, fruits, and the like.

My mom has this thing for tissues. She loved them! She would get a box or two and keep it to herself! And last night - well, you can say that this was the first time it has happened.

She came back from Hong Kong - she brought home 3 pieces, 1 is a luggage and 2 were boxes. One of which contained roasted pork, roasted goose and roasted duck - and the other? Well, it was half filled with tissue boxes! Apparently - she got them from the hotel.

No - she did not steal them! They were given to her by the hotel! How? Well, whenever the leaves the hotel - she keeps the entire box of facial tissues in her luggage. In turn - housekeeping refills them every single time! Technically - she did not get them from the pushcarts! Hahaha...

This is one of the reasons why I love it when I travel with my mom. Technicalities of getting even. Hahahaha!! :)


  1. hahaha tissuenapper ;) **jokes**

    well not all hotels allow you to take the toiletries within your room. some of the hostels i went don't even provide them~!

    KKD...kanya kanyang dala ng toiletries...

  2. my dad used to bring home uncooked wontons (the giant ones) from HK...i miss those stuff...

    is it hard to get roast duck/goose in manila?

  3. Hiya janusngo! Really? KKD? Haha! That's tough!

    About the uncooked Wantons - where did he get those? I want them too!! Hahaha.. It's hard to get the HongKong style/taste of goose and roast duck here in Manila. They're either too dry, walang mashadong lasa or too hard!
