Weeks before my aunt's arrival...she emails (asks) me for her itineraries (I get the picture...since she's an executive at world bank she feels like she also needs an administrative assistant whenever she comes home). Ok lang just as long as she gets me everything on the lists.
I usually ask for the following:
Treats for my dogs (with specific brands of course)
Safety toys for my dogs
Nike Shoes (at least 3 of these)
You may think this is too much...but...You have no idea how much work I have whenever she comes home. So, ok lang. Vice versa whenever I go to her house naman in DC all she ask for pasalubong are PEANUTS (you name it, I have it in my luggage) But at least I don't work for her when I'm at her house.
