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.

Chestnut in season for the holiday

Chestnuts come during the month of December in the Philippines often we buy it in Divisoria on a stall in the street where someone is frying in a big pan. In Tagalog we call it castanas they are sold in a brown paper bag newly roasted sold by 1/4 kilo, 1/2 kilo and 1 kilo depending on what size you would like to purchase. During our pandemic months my mom's neighbor is selling it for 1 Kilo for PHP 300.00 ($6.00) the taste is soft, sweet and best hot can be cooked in the toaster oven.  To stay fresh leave in your refrigerator when you feel like eating it again. Or you can remove it from the shell and place in a Tupperware with a lid. To crack it open you can use a nut cracker I just use a crab cracker it does the same purpose. You may purchase your chestnuts at this person who we had placed our order. Note: I am not selling chestnuts just my favorite during the holiday season.
