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.

Have you ever experience being an alien from another country you’ve traveled?

Being an alien where ever you travel the reason I say this when you travel and you look different from someone else from the way you look, talk and dress people identify as you being different from them. No matter if you don't mean well to attract people from both gender it just happens because to you look different from them no matter what nationality they may be who lives in that country to them you are a new face a person that make you who you are from being different to them.

The Story of Dinuguan Dish and Its Recipe

My mom began cooking the dinuguan in the kitchen as I was watching her cook the dish I saw my mom pour something that look like blood. I questioned my mom what was that she was pouring and she said it was pork blood.  Ever since I saw the pork blood she had poured into the dish I had told my mom you are a vampire and ever since that moment I never went back to eat it until I grew older. During the time I had celebrated my birthday and I had friends come over at my house my mom would cook dinuguan as one of the main dish and during that time we had called it chocolate meat.

Fresh Lychees in Season

Lychee is in season in the Philippines it can be eaten by itself or make into a juice or dessert from this fruit and the most common it is made as well into a smoothie or milk tea either way how you want to eat it is my favorite fruit. It comes with a branch when you buy it tied up together and when you open it the inside looks like this shown in the picture. Lychee is a sweet fruit and it is juicy as you open it with your hands but it doesn't last long because later the skin becomes hard, rough and start to turn slightly brown as you can see in this picture compare to the first one when it is red. My tip is you can open each one and place it in the fridge by removing its seeds you can also place in the freezer for long life when you plan to make a smoothie out of it in a Tupperware or Ziploc. Lychee is in season from the month of June and July.
