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.

Safety Your Home For Eldery Parents

When we reach in our 80’s our portion of food needs to be cut into bite size pieces so it becomes easier for us to get our food with using a spoon and fork. We have a harder time grasping using our utensils when we eat our daily meals. We tend to have an assistance to help cut our food for us. My father in-law loves eating fish, but he has a harder time removing the fish bones off the fish. We learn to buy fish that has been already removed the fish bones in what we call it boneless. This way we can cut it up in bite size pieces for him to be able to chew his food and not worry he will choke. Later as your parents become older you will realize there will be an adjustment period in the way you eat with your family members. You will realize your parents need more assistance from you even if they will not ask for it, but you can tell the way they are having a hard time when they eat their meals. They have less strength as they eat and you will need to adjust y

Hitting the 80's

When you get older and reach the age in the 80’s you have a harder time putting your clothes on and removing it. You realize you need a new set of wardrobe in your closet. For some reason you no longer know how to button your clothes or your fingers are too big and can't seem to do it on your own. You end up having an assistance to help you close up your dress shirt or zip up your pants. The t-shirt you wear need tags that identify which is the front or the back to make sure you is not wearing your clothes backwards. My father in-law is going through this stage in life he has a harder time identifying which is the front and back of his t-shirt especially he has no print on them they are sold colors he wear at the house. He doesn’t realize he is being strangled by the way he put his clothes on because it is backwards. Only his wife and family members will tell him his shirt is backwards as he changes it by removing it out. You reach the stage when you ha

Tim Tam Craving Made in Australia

My close friend recommended to try eating Tim Tam Mint Choco Mint. I took her advise and bought a lot to take home to my family. I took a bite and it taste like those Girl's Scout Mint Cookies we love to buy in California when it is in season for them to sell to their family and friends for a fundraiser. It gave back my old childhood as I took a bite from the Tim Tam Mint Choco Mint. I can only eat one piece since it is too sweet for me.  My mom decided to buy Original and Dark Chocolate and when she went home she had tried it. She liked the taste and wanted to know if I have brought the same flavors to trade for something else she had bought. Too bad I didn't buy the flavor she had bought because they didn't seem the kind my family would eat. I was able to find them online and I was able to order her more to stock up in her home.

Lazy Me

I am a bit jetlag with a three hour time difference. I got use to eating salad every day from my every morning breakfast buffet. As I went to the grocery store I was able to find so many varieties of salad packs that have been pre-made. I felt since I am the only one going to be eating salad at home and everyone at the house calls it ewe. I bought my own to last me awhile to eat before it expires. Outcome it all taste great and this way when I feel like eating healthy I can just buy salad with all different kind of ingredients. Of, course I had added other ingredients that wasn't in my salad container with some ripe avocado and artichoke hearts this way I can play with my salad combo and make it taste a little more than by adding other ingredients you have in your home. The price per salad pack is PHP 185.00 ($3.70) I bought the salad at Merkado Super Market.

Paper Moon Tokyo in the Philippines

After returning from my recent trip I was craving for some milk tea been six days haven’t drank my favorite drink. I went to U.P. Town Center to buy my father in-law’s sugar free ice cream in which they asked me to buy for him again. It gave me a chance to find what I was craving for and came across Paper Moon Tokyo in which I have heard before and asked, the person at the counter what is their best seller. She replied, back with cheesecake milk tea and oreo milk tea. I took her advice and bought both to see what she said, was true. I don’t like when there is ice in my milk tea and no many places have ice inside. It wasn’t sweet so I guess you can say it is okay.
