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

Did you know you can teach your friend how to cook a meal through video call?

Every now and then my friend would call me up through video call and ask me what she can cook out what ingredients she has in her home due she miss eating Filipino food but she is staying in a foreign country. As my friend takes out all the ingredients she has in her home I started analyzing to see what she can make her ingredients in something that she can cook out of it. It may not be the same ingredients we used back home from the Philippines but with her ingredients we can improvise to make it something close to home. My friend had some fresh small shrimp, tomato, onion, spinach and bottle white beans. I told my friend she can make into munggo even if the beans we're not exactly the beans we used either way she can eat something that looked like a Filipino dish. You can find my recipe of my  Munggo Recipe  through this link to direct you to it.

Did you know you can travel even if you are at your home?

When you cannot travel your friends calls you up during a video call while she is in a car traveling somewhere other than her home you get to experience being in your home but you can also be seeing the view from the outside of the car. Your friends always make you feel special when they know your situation in your life when you are not able to go outside so they call you up to keep their time in the car as you have a conversation with them as you experience seeing places outside their video you notice how bumping the ride is from the reflection of the moving up and down. Your friend laughs not realizing you can see it from your end so matter if you are like me and you have friends who wants to share the same experience like them anything is possible through video call because where you are you can still see the outside. One time my friend called me up when she was in her backyard of her home and she had decided to call me up through video call and I was telling my friend can I see the

Have you ever been a third wheel on someone’s date?

Have you ever been a third wheel on someone’s date? I’ve always experience being a third wheel when I was young when my friends didn’t want to go alone on a first time they met someone for the first time. Or I use to ask my friends to come with me because I also felt the same way I didn’t want to be alone with someone new I met when I use to live in the Philippines when I was younger. I had heard stories my parents use to tell me when I was young and what they might do to you. In my mind I had this imagine what if what my parents told me was true but again on the second date you kind of know the person a little more and the tension of the person seem easier on yourself. Having a first date gives you an excitement and you wonder who is this person you really don’t know I am sure anyone has felt the same way you really don’t know the person if you get to know someone and ask them a lot of questions. As we get older and you are single all over again the same thing happens to you

Kimono Ken in the Philippines

This time around my family member was craving for Japanese food in our home and I decided to try something new than an ordinary place we normally have ordered online before my great advantages is because I get to try the food and let you know how it looks. In our family someone was craving for Unagi (eel) so I went ahead and found it available at  Kimono Ken . California Maki Dancing Eel Roll  Miso Soup Unagi Kabayaki Crunchy Chicken Teriyaki  When you live in a house hold that loves eating you get to try new food each time when they start to crave for food on a certain day. Note: Carmina is not selling or advertising for  Kimono Ken in the Philippines.

Do you ever have family and friends telling you need a life?

Do you ever have family and friends telling you need a life? What does it mean to someone when someone tells you have no life when you are home and going through a lockdown? Does it mean you need to go out? Does it mean find something else than being on social media or playing too many video games? I had started playing a game Candy Crush that started year 2012 it is the only game I play and I find it challenging for me to reach each level as I keep reaching a higher score and during that time my sister asked me to play the game so I can send her lives. We use to compete with each other and see who would be first to reach the next level. Everyone goes through a pattern when someone loses or wins in a game and they can no longer reach to the level you are on. My sister than told me I need to get a life and stop playing Candy Crush because I had already beat her score but I kept playing the game until now. Just recently my friend was messaging me asking
