Filipino Way - Balikbayan Box

When Filipinos heard the word ''Balikbayan Box''. Pinoys tend to get excited easily. And Expecting something from it.


Wonder why? Of course, Overseas Filipino Workers or OFWs are getting used to or taking advantage of buying such sale items and will keep them in that box for a couple months. And when the month of December is approaching, it is time for the box to be sent out to the Philippines. Filipinos tend to send one month before Christmas since this is how Filipinos give gifts to everyone. A Filipino tradition that's been done ever since. Filipino way indeed.


Before working as an OFW. I am receiving such "Steyts Side" from my relatives or friends in the USA.
However, more likely, regardless if it is from the US or abroad. Filipinos tend to say it is the "Steyt Side" - (State Side) since it is imported from abroad.

The feeling of happiness when someone gave you some imported stuff?  Regardless if it is toothpaste or "Toblerone", Filipinos will appreciate it as this is just once in a while. Some Pinoys will even post it on social media. For others, it is kinda weird, but for Filipinos, Who cares? It is just-so-you-know thing, And we are happy about it.


When I started working in the UAE. I promised myself that I would be sending out some stuff from my Family.
Easy? Not really. I need to wait for a sale of the groceries and buy promotional goods. And having a budget for these can be a bit skeptical since I need to do the budgeting of my allowance and other miscellaneous expenses.

It will take even months to fill the box. But eventually, when is it time to seal the box?
Regardless of not having this stuff on your end,  the happiness that you felt thus your Family is overwhelmed and excited to receive this stuff. It is Priceless. 


I recently purchased a Smart TV. I send it through LBC Express.

Since I sent a balikbayan box before with them. My aunt received the box in good condition. No spillage of liquid items inside. Everything is in good condition. After that, I am confident to choose this courier again.  So I did not hesitate to call their contact center and ask what are the promo offers that they have.


Since I'm in the UAE, The contact number of lbs is 800 522111- Toll-Free

The agent advised me that if the screen size starts at 48 to 50 inches. The charge includes the crating will be AED630 or $172 current exchange rate at the moment.

It's affordable compared to other couriers that I recently inquired before.

Booking an appointment via their contact center is very easy. However, you can also schedule a pick-up online. For me, I highly recommend calling their call center for it's easy and hassle-free. The agent will ask about your specific location,  after which the agent will check the availability of the delivery team to pick up the box. 

Call Center timings are open from 8 AM till 12 Midnight.


In my case, the scheduled pick-up of delivery was the following day. So it was quick.

You will pay upfront for the delivery team and they will be providing the receipt for the transaction and the reference number will be issued for tracking afterward.


As far as I know, they updated the tracking number, three days after accepting the box. 

And it took exactly 47 days to arrive in my hometown in the Philippines.

For your reference.

I have taken a screenshot of the delivery time frame from UAE to Iloilo, Philippines.
