I’ve got cousins who work abroad. Most of them are working in the medical field and it was only every summer that they get a chance to go home here in the Philippines so they can spend time with their respective families. When we, the cousins, get together, we instantly bond through shopping. We get to buy clothes, Cherokee uniforms, shoes, accessories, and eat in a fancy restaurant and have a never ending chit chat. It only happens once a year but we make sure that we get to spend some quality time together.
