Certain stores provide a discount when you shop at their store example in Seafood City Supermarket it is 12% from your purchases on every Tuesday. Ross Dress for Less Store every Tuesday is 10% off your purchase. Basically, you can gain a pension from support from the government to apply for low income when you want to start a life living back in the United States if you wanted too without having an income.

Mobile Phone Experience

Every one year or two years I would get a new mobile phone depending on my family needing a new phone. I am the only girl and I get the new gadget that comes out in the market. I have a phone carrier through Globe in the Philippines. Our contract is every two years. I have four accounts from Globe. I have two accounts that the expiration date falls the same year. The other two interchange to the next following year. This way I get a new mobile phone every year. The first time I had a mobile phone was the iPhone 4s that just came out in the market during those year. I had my iPhone just for two weeks. It was stolen from me when I was shopping at Tutuban. It was the worse experience I have ever encountered in my life.  I realized that point in my life bringing an expensive mobile phone in Divisoria Mall is not safe in the Philippines. I never brought out my phone in public. There was a lady who dressed really nice and expensive clothing. She wore black sunglasses. She wasn&

Too much medicine can damage your kidney. The herbal way is drinking okra water every morning before eating your breakfast.

Okra Recipe : Ingredient : 1 piece of okra slice half way lengthwise 1 tall glass of drinking water Step 1 : Fill up the drinking glass with water and place the okra inside over night.

They will request your passport, dual citizenship and birth certificate. What are the process when choosing the right school for your child in the Philippines?

Second Step: Inquire at the school and fill up an application and give them the required documents Schedule your child for an entrance test to be able to enter the school There will be a payment for the test to be taken

My Experience Starting My Own Blog

I learn a lot of things when I started making this blog. I read a lot of articles and watched videos from YouTube letting people know it takes six to eight months to be accepted by Google AdSense. At first I was feeling discourage while reading tips from other people. Yes, it is true you need to purchase your own domain name. I took the courage to purchase my own domain name from Google Domain. You need to figure out what is the best domain name that suit the website you will always write about. I picked Carmina Lifestyle it is based on myself with all my experience. I read it is best to pick .com based on .net or .org. The reason why I wanted to write this is to let people know don't always believe what people say in the Internet. My reasons is they said, not to add videos to your blog and put it later when you get accepted by Google AdSense. Actually, I did the opposite I placed videos in my blogs from places I had traveled. I even placed website link where pla

Party Favors For All Occasion

Party favors are inexpensive in the Philippines. Every time we have a relative visiting us they would always ask me to design a banner for their Grand child. The only thing I would ask them is pictures that are from a camera and the birthday theme in order to find the right design for that occasion. Here are the sample of the banners I have created on my own based on my own experiences: My sister asked, me to design one for her daughter when she had graduated this year. I brought the tarpaulin with me when I had arrived to attend the graduation of my niece. It is best to give at least two months of time to purchase items online. I didn't have enough time when my sister asked, me to purchase graduation party favor for my niece. The only possible solution was to find a seller that can provide it on time to arrive at a selective date. My relatives that usually arrive every other year would always ask me to accompany them at the 168 Shopping Mall, D
