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.

Too humid in the Philippines need something to cool you down a bit since we are unable to fly to Zamboanga to try their well known dessert called Knicker Bocker ingredients are fresh fruits, jellies, tapioca, sweetened milk and with strawberry ice cream on top. Usually in the Philippines we eat something that has fresh fruits is something we call fruit salad but have you ever tried it with ice cream well Carmina has never tried it either. She decided to order it from Dolce de Manila through Grab application on her phone. It says there is a Limited Time Offer El Coco Melon has the following ingredients shredded melon, watermelon, nata de coco, tapioca, sweetened milk and buko melon ice cream for PHP 130.00 ($2.60).

Dunkin' Donuts in the Philippines

Dunkin Donuts doesn't only make donuts but they also have breakfast sandwiches for those who don't feel like eating something sweet. Long time ago my mom was the one who introduce me to the Ham & Cheese Croissant when we use to go shopping picking me up early in the morning. We would have our breakfast at Dunkin' Donuts. My mom had informed me her cousin Tita Pera had introduce her to the Ham & Cheese Croissant every time they went out to accompany her cousin to do some errands. Too bad Tita Pera is in heaven and when we eat the Ham & Cheese Croissant it reminds my mom of her cousin who passed away years ago. Ham & Cheese Croissant is just a basic sandwich for PHP 85.00 ($1.70). I had ordered Passion Fruit Tea, but the branch I had placed my order said it wasn't available and went ahead to try their Mango Fruit Tea that had some pearl inside with mango flavor inside. Remember to stir the drink all the flavoring in the bottom of the cup for PHP 100.00 ($2

Do you remember Bazooka Bubble Gum?

  Do you remember Bazooka Bubble Gum? Growing up in California I remember we loved having Bazooka Bubble Gum and we had always looked forward to read the cartoon script that was inside the wrapper. We always had parents who always tell us not to swallow your gum or else something would happen to our stomach. I remember I had friends who would swallow their Bazooka Bubble Gum and nothing really happened to them. Although we have people who don't throw it away in the proper place they spit it out in the public area having bubble gum in your shoes or worse is stuck on your own hair. Otherwise chewing Bazooka Bubble Gum was a favorite of mine and brought back my childhood memories we use the white wrapper in our pocket when we're done we can place the Bazooka Bubble Gum inside and throw it away in the trash can. Carmina was able to find Bazooka Bubble Gum from  Captain's Candy  Online Shopee Philippines for PHP 79.00 ($1.78) for six pieces that has been repacked not including s

Pepperidge Farm Milano Mint Cookies made in USA

  During my food ventures a seller asked if there was a specific childhood snack I was aiming that I haven't found. I had mentioned my favorite Pepperidge Farm Milano Mint Cookies. Three months later Captain's Candy had informed me they have Pepperidge Farm Milano Mint Cookies available. The first thing I asked if they had a way to prevent the chocolate to get melted during the process being handed over to the courier before it would reach to me. Due it is summer in the Philippines I don't want to have my cookies melted. I was informed  Captain's Candy  Online Shopee Philippines will place it in a insulation and put it in a cardboard box to prevent melting. I went ahead and finalize my order to see what else the seller had available in stock to make one transaction. I had placed my order on May 18, 2021. It was shipped out on May 19, 2021.
