Mga Libro Lang Yan (Those are just books)
I presented my parcel's receipt. Followed the line to the receiving area. Paid forty pesos and waited until the clerk brought the box out. One guy examined my parcel note.
Guy 1: Naka-adress sa school (Parcel note is addressed to the school).
Guy 2 examined the box. Looked at me and took the parcel note from Guy 1.
Guy 2: Ibigay mo na. Mga libro lang yan (Release the parcel. Those are just books).
I lifted my box of books and went out the post office happy that I didn't pay a big amount of tax but a bit dismissed at the clerk's reaction.
