Carmina Found Ling Nam the Original Hong Kong Style Fried Siopao Asado with Egg from Balai Pandesal

Hunger strikes looking for bread in the house while looking in the kitchen finding nothing in sight. Carmina decided to look into her phone through Grab Food checking what she felt like ordering. She came across deciding to buy some bread at a nearest bakery. I saw Mom Violy's favorite fried siopao just seeing it is Ling Nam Fried Siopao Asado with Egg sold for box of eight pieces 350.00 pesos ($6.36) not including delivery fee and tip to the rider. Carmina called up Mom Violy informing she doesn't need to drive all the way from Binondo to purchase her cravings of fried siopao. It had arrived hot and ready to eat. It is yummy and quite big for its size.  NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for Ling Nam the Original Hong Kong Style Fried Siopao Asado with Egg from Balai Pandesal.

Carmina found the right massage oil and decided to try different brands made of ginger ingredient finding out it is healthy for you. Mary Ann said there are massage oil that can dry up your skin. Carmina's favorite is the smell is ginger. I cannot seem to handle the smell of something strong with floral scent. I am not really a person who likes anything strong the scent makes me feel dizzy. I'd rather stick to a scent that doesn't put my mind feeling uncomfortable. Carmina was able to purchase that is rather a bigger amount with a reasonable price of PHP 285.00 ($5.18) not including shipping and handling. Gracy Lopez  sells a variety of oil in case you would like to try something else for yourself. Mary Ann had informed Carmina she uses a lot of oil to reach my deep tissue.

Mary Ann has Accepted her Challenge in the Cold Weather with Carmina

We decided to change our challenge to somewhere else and before we can begin it. Carmina had to make sure Mary Ann is prepared with a thick winter jacket and a pair of boots. Carmina asked, Mary Ann if she had a jacket and boots to wear on our outing since the climate is not how we are use too being humid or warm weather. Mary Ann said she left her winter clothes in Germany. Carmina went to the old house where she had use to live to get winter clothes that was given to her from family members from California. Due to my diet, I've lost a lot of weight and decided to give what no longer fits me. I looked into a room where we store our winter clothes and came across a thick jacket that Mama Tess has given to me. The color really suits Mary Ann since it is also her favorite. My niece had given me her old pair of UGG Boots in a size 7 made in Vietnam.  Just wait until February comes and you'll see where we are headed too.

Clothes Challenge for Che and Rhian Given by Carmina

Last year Carmina had posted she had won in Bingo and Che had message asking me for a balito (gift). Often this word comes across when someone wins something that involves with money. Carmina decided to just give Che and her daughter clothes she had purchased in the past that was too small by size.

Mom Violy had mentioned to Carmina that Che and Rhian cannot afford items of their own.  The best way is to clean out stuff you don't see yourself wearing and give to those who can make use of it.

Carmina had shoes she wore a long time ago. Shoes that I hardly wore but when you lose weight so much weight your feet tend to slip away. All shoes were purchased ye

Carmina was getting thirsty. I went inside 7 - Eleven and came across checking out what ready meals were available in the refrigerator section near the counter of the cash register.

Carmina's Review on Joe Mama's Coffee & Donuts from Marikina, Philippines

Carmina needed a picker upper to wake up.  Carmina decided to order from  Joe Mama's Coffee & Donuts located in Marikina. I just ordered through Grab Food from my phone. Carmina had her eyes on the Strawberry 'N' Cream and Blueberries 'N' Cream. I had purchased 1 Box of Assorted with Plain their Classic without any filling and 1 Coffee Filling for PHP 420.00 ($7.64). The disadvantages are that the filling only reaches 1/4 of the donut and remaining reaching the middle is the classic version. The donut is not sweet without any filling.  If they had filled up the Strawberry 'N' Cream and Blue Berries 'N' Cream I would have liked it. Family member wanted to try their 22 oz. Iced Salted Caramel for PHP 190.00 ($3.45) and 16 oz. Iced Mocha for PHP 190.00 ($3.45) not including delivery and tip to the rider.
