Benetton Cold Straight from the Balikbayan Box
Last week, my cousin who's working in Saudi Arabia arrived in the country for a month long vacation. He's been working there for almost two decades already. Everyone here was excited and of course, waiting for the balikbayan boxes (standard cardboard boxes containing a number of small items and sent by an overseas Filipino) to be opened each eager to get their pasalubong (anything given as a gift to someone on the way home from a certain place or trip).
As for me, I always request perfume every time he goes home; my favorite perfume that is - Cold by United Colors of Benetton. I've been using this perfume since college and it has been my signature scent known to people close to me. I don't know, but I've received a lot of compliments telling me that I smell good with this perfume. I was even told by one of my officemates then that I smell like a macho dancer which I gladly took as a flatter (laughs).
So to my friends, better get to the perfume store now and reserve one for me on my birthday. Kidding! Haha.
