Life at Age 55 in the United States

Did you know in the United States when you reach 55 years old, you're consider a senior citizen? Carmina realized being one year to become fifty-five years old she can take advantage of the benefits when you're visiting the United States. 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. Just visiting the United States if your 55 years old has a lot of benefits that some people are not aware of for example the friends I've spoken too. Did you know you can purchase a house that is for the 55 years and up for Retirement and 55+ Communities?  Carmina's friends have been informing when you're 55 years old you can co

Rizza located in Farmer's Market Cubao

Every day you learn something new how people in the palengke or what we call public market where you buy fresh meat, fish, seafood, vegetables and fruits. Yesterday, I came across from a store that was about to close. As I was watching them close their stall I was curious just watching what they we’re doing. Sometimes we don’t realize how everyone closes their store differently. My mom was buying fresh crab and fresh shrimps at Farmer’s Market. I was set aside while she did more shopping to watch over her seafood while she had wandered away. I just stood where she had bought her fresh seafood. This is what I saw the seafood that they sell for example crabs, shrimp and squid they are all place in a separate bins that are open.  Pour water to wash out the dirt from the shrimp Drain the water In the container like a cooler place a plastic inside place the shrimp inside Add crushed ice even it out Add another level of shrimp Add crushed ice  Cover with plastic and

New Friend

Every time my mom goes out she runs into meeting someone new and becomes her new Facebook friend. We stayed hours in the grocery store as they share their stories in getting to know each other. As they kept saying it is already late they still keeping talking and the more they didn't want to separate from each other. They are almost the same age range and her new friend also uses to work in California so they really have something in common to talk about. They are both retired and they share the same interest with ballroom dancing. She was telling us that she hires a dance instructor and it is one of favorite hobby. I was telling her to invite my mom along so they can be new close friends to pull her away and find something new or a hobby she use to do, but had stopped because her cousin had passed away. The funny part they have a Facebook account, but they don't know how to add for a friend's request. I was their personal assistances and took over bot

Photo with Filters and No Filters

My friend Yann was telling me the other day that she was telling her best friend Liza that she had admire her close friend Carmina because no matter if she takes a picture of herself using her own phone there is no filters. Liza was shocked thinking Carmina is using filters when they take a picture. I will share you pictures of Carmina that has filters that my friend took yesterday when we ate out using their phone. I was wondering why my face had changed it's shape, my face had so much make up and the color of my skin wasn't natural. This is a picture of us with no filters.

Seafood Island Restaurant

Feeling for a road trip of some seafood come to Seafood Island that was a variety of boodle feast, Filipino dishes and seafood you can choose which type of dish you are craving for. Sometimes nothing is planned and you end up running into your close friends and decide to meet at a restaurant. You decided the food will be KKB. What does KKB mean? It Tagalog it means kanya kanyang bayad in English the meaning is you pay your own share. The bill is either divided by how many people. Or you will get a separate tab either way everyone is paying. As to friends we feel we don’t want someone always paying the tab because we feel later you will feel that person is taking advantage of you. It is better off sharing and paying the bill once in awhile.
