Hi mga miga,

Padala unta ko balikbayan box kay hapit na pasko pero gaduha-duha ko kay naa man gud mga bad reviews and comments nga dili daw mo-abot ang box unya naa pud uban kuhaon ug hilabtan ang sulod.

Unsa man inyong suggestions? Kung nakapadala mo before, unsa man inyo gigamit na cargo forwarder? Naa man diri UMAC Cargo Forwarder duol sa among dapit pero dili man maayo ang reviews sa ilang serbisyo.

salamat daan sa mga tubag.

Akong na suwayan kay FOREX murag 3 times na, ok man ila service pero sometimes dali maabot sometimes ma delay sad kay labi na if naa bagyo kay by ship man dili by plane nya sige pa sila stopover other states para mag pick up.Usually 6 weeks ayha ma abot, kun swertehon ma abot in 4 weeks. Naa ni sila sa Jacksonville, FL ilang main office pero mostly mga Filipino store ilang outlet. Murag $114 man siguro to ang bayad sa biggest box nila, tag $5 sad ila box. So far ok man ila pag deliver wala pa may nangabuak.Hehehe...

Kanindot ba lang unta kung maabot nang LBC diri sa Florida oy. Pwede ba kaha ta maka-request no, nga mag-open sab sila branch diri, para sab unta malipay ang mga Pinay nga naa diri sa Florida. Daghan baya sab mi diri ay. smile.gif

Anah jud sakit sa bulsa kung ato huna huna-on pero kung atong huna huna on ang kalipay sa ato gihatagan ato naman lang tunlon ang sakit sa bulsa.Ako murag nature jud sa akong pagkatawo mohatag ko basta ganahan ko sa tawo bisan di nako kaayo kaila basta like nako.Sa trabaho an basta duna mag bday unya ganahan ko sa celebrant mo hatag jud ko gift adto dayon ko sa bath body and works kay mao ra man ako madali ug afford unya presentable pod malipay jud ang hatagan.Usahay gani mag dala ko ug 2 dozens of dunkin donuts ako ra jud na pakaon sa tanan ibutang nako sa breakroom butangan nako "ENJOY ...by shone".Sus malipay kaayo ko nga magtan aw nga malipay ako gihatagan or lami -an sila sa ako gidala,ganahan ko sa akong gibati murag ako na feel nga naka share ko sa blessings ni lord bisan gud ug giaghuran jud nako ug ugwad ang money pero importante jud nakapalipay ta sa atong isigkatawo.Lahi jud ato bati -on basta maka pang hatag.
