Going on the inevitable business trip or much-awaited vacation can take us very far away from the comforts of our own home. The sojourn might take a week up to a few months in a local or foreign location, but the result is ultimately the same: homesickness! We start to miss our family and friends. Usually, being away from home makes a person feel more alone than ever due to the new, sometimes alienating, surroundings. Likewise, our family and friends miss us too. How do we bridge this gap?
Good thing that technology nowadays allows people to communicate simultaneously from all over the world. Virtually everybody is just one text message, email, or call away without the hassle of sending letters, telegraphs, postcards or what-not. There’s no need to wait for days just to get one message through a person in the Philippines or abroad. With the help of electronic gadgets, communication is fast, efficient, and cheap. Spending time away from home has become less hard for people who value their loved ones.
However, communicating faster has its downside. For one, it has become so common that a phone call do not mean as much as it used to back in the old days, when a telephone was rare, the rates were high, and carrying on a conversation was much more difficult due to the quality of the archaic technology. For example, saying “I Love You” over the phone now is so easy that people sometimes forget how much weight the words actually carry. With the advent of text messaging, “I Love You” has become nothing more than the suffix “iluvu” or “<3 u” after every text message.
There is a very simple way to remedy this problem: do it the old-fashioned way! Show your loved ones just how much you miss them by giving significant gifts, such as flowers. Flowers are a more personal touch in showing how much you miss a person. It’s definitely more unique and meaningful than just sending run-of-the-mill electronic messages. If you want to sell flowers within or outside the Philippines, you don’t need to go far: just visit any reputable flower shops online. Flower delivery services such as Island Rose can deliver flowers to any destination in the Philippines. In addition to that, all flowers from them come straight from the farm. Just log in, choose any rose you would like your loved ones to receive, delivery details, and voila! Just a few days and your family or friends will receive their flowers.
If you’re far away from home, show how much you miss the people you care for by going the extra distance for them—get flowers for that extra personal touch.
