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

Try the Special Icho Roll

  The family member is not content will to have more food on your table you end up having a table filled with food from Icho Japanese Restaurant. You end up not knowing which food you will grab first for a birthday celebration and graduation all combined as well for Mother's Day you don't know which sushi to eat first. Good thing there was a lot of leftover for you to continue to eat for dinner there wasn't a rush at all. You can take your time and eat the rest for tomorrow feeling over whelmed so many foods and a lot of selection that is the weakness of having a Filipino family they love to keep ordering food that can feed an army. To the Filipino they think it is better to have more food on the table than less food not enough for everyone to pass around is something I have learned. Of course I always make sure I have food to give to my mom and send to the driver at the house. A way even if you're not living in the same house my mom can also enjoy the food too.

Eggplant Katsu with Cauliflower Rice from Rhian Ramos' Healthy Appetite

Two years ago my visit in California my sister was on a diet while eating our dinner with the family member. My sister's rice was different than everyone else she had introduce me to Cauliflower rice that she had purchase in Trader's Joe. My sister asked me if they had Cauliflower rice in the Philippines. It was my first time trying it and unaware if whether in the Philippines they had it or not. In our household family members eat white rice or brown rice but never tried Cauliflower rice before although I am not much of a rice eater. I have other family members who have served corn rice and black rice while I was visiting their home in the Philippines other than what my sister eats. I was looking for healthy food to eat this time around for my early dinner. I came across finding something I wanted to try Eggplant Katsu with Cauliflower Rice from Rhian Ramos' Healthy Appetite for PHP 199.00 ($3.98) not including Grab Food delivery fee and tip to the rider. I had requested t

Looking for a drink to refresh you during the summer and being Mother's Day not many places to order or a rider can pick it up. For a reason I was able to try Moonleaf but in good faith it brought me to a place that was a success trying something new for example watermelon milk tea. 😮 I never knew there was watermelon milk tea until I saw the menu of Moonleaf which is my favorite fruit during summer season. Moonleaf Philippines  from their menu it is listed under Tropical Plunge for Watermelon Milk Tea PHP 140.00 ($2.80) with add one of your choices. Lychee Milk Slush with Nata Tall size PHP 177.00 ($3.54) Something my mom wanted to try for herself since she has just started drinking these types of drinks. Caramel Milk Tea size Tall PHP 121.00 ($2.42)  I am looking forward in trying their other drinks in the future. I saw they have dragonfruit another favorite fruit in my list.

Oklahoma Baby Back Ribs

The problem during Mother's Day and you're mom is craving for ribs you have a difficult time finding it for her. You end up trying it elsewhere. I remember my mom had told me she went on a date with her guy friend who was courting her during years ago that the guy brought her to eat at Burgoo it is an American Restaurant in the Philippines. It took me six times to finally have my order push through for a Grab rider to pick up my mom's order. I had ordered her a Large Oklahoma Baby Back Ribs that comes with corn and fries on the side for PHP 985.00 ($19.70) not including fee from Grab and tip to the rider. Even though it is not replenish day for my mom's food it is a special day being Mother's Day my mom fill have festival day being at her home. For your reference you may check  Burgoo  to direct you to their menu by clicking their name. Note: Carmina is not selling or advertising for Oklahoma Baby Back Ribs from Burgoo just something my mom was craving. Subscribe @

Mad Crab

Carmina has been craving for crab and decided to be mad about if she didn't have her crab to eat in the Philippines. I am just kidding but really I was craving for crab and shrimp that I haven't eaten for a long time. The only person who love to eat this is my mom but when I had called her up she said she got tired eating crab. Although she doesn't mind having some shrimp to pack up to her home. Why not order without my mom and have some crab and shrimp delivered to your home? Carmina decided to try a new place and explore on my food venture toward Mad Crab Philippines that I had found in Facebook. The procedure is too leave a message asking a menu a person who send your request giving you an order form in what you would like to order in advance to make sure they have stock to sell to you.
