DJ & A Healthy Vegetable Snacks

Carmina has rubbed on to her friend how to eat healthy snacks living in California. We come across when friends influence you to eat healthy as we begin to age you start to think how to balance our snacks. You love to eat mushroom, broccoli and potato you can eat it as a chip but the healthy version. Carmina was able to try the Original Potato Wedge kind of remind you eating a baked potato with chives. Mushroom chips are not that salty yet hard to bite into if you're an elderly.  DJ & A Healthy Snacks can be found in your Dollar Tree Store or purchase online at  DJ & A  to find out what other chips of vegetables you would like to try.

Being Blind on Right Eye

You come across that your running low on your contact lenses and having different grades on your eye from right and left. Carmina has a funny story when she would be able to go in person to  Sarabia Optical in the shopping mall. The sales lady would tell me I am sorry we don't have your contact lens available for your right eye. I would tease the sales lady oh my I will become blind because my grade is different in both eyes without having contact lens I won't be able to see clearly. The sales lady would just smile at me saying we can order from our manufacture and can be available the following week. I would always ask Sarabia Optical what is their promotion for my contact lenses but due my right eye being greater meaning it has astigmatism there is no sale for my Air Optix Contact Lens during this time. Each box of Air Optix Contact Lens with Astigmatism has three contact lenses inside which is three months to use. Unfortunately, I cannot wear reading glasses due to my visio

Smoked Paprika Shrimp Salad and Levantine Chicken Laffa at Medley Modern Mediterranean

  Carmina didn't feel like eating the food in the house cooked by Manang V which was beef niliga and grilled stuff bangus due being humid in the Philippines. Eating soup adds on the temperature you feel especially when the air-conditioner in your room cannot handle the heat from outside. I decided upon eating salad. I felt a way to start eating healthy and find an alternative place to buy it gave me an opportunity to find Medley Modern Mediterranean. I saw the Smoked Paprika Shrimp Salad that has the following ingredients romaine lettuce, Israeli salad, wheat, fried eggplant, feta cheese, shrimp, lemon and garlic dressing for PHP 379.00 ($7.58). I wanted something else with my meal just in case I didn't feel like eating the food at the house to make it worthwhile in one transaction. I saw Levantine Chicken Laffa that has chicken thigh, mixed greens, hummus, Israeli salad, fried eggplant and mamba sauce for PHP 299.00 ($5.98). It gave me an opportunity to try Smoked Paprika Shri

Watermelon has always been a fruit we always eat during summer season having a picnic with our families and close friends. We would slice it up and share among everyone who has come to join us outside.

We can drink OKF Watermelon Drink with Aloe made in Korea to give us a refreshing taste. The drink is not too sweet and it does taste watermelon and the aloe is floating in the juice.

Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey made in USA

Year 2004 I went to visit my close friend and she had asked me to sleep over in Los Angeles. Every meal my close friend would offers Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey in this same gallon container. Ever since I started drinking it it also became my favorite I remember I would only find this drink in the Dollar Store in California where I grew up and sometimes they come in a can version being portable to bring it with you. Living in the Philippines I was able to find it sometimes in S&R, Shopwise Grocery Store, Lazada Philippines and Shopee Philippines every place you would make your own purchase is always a different price. I was able to find my Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey at  Jesxeria20Tv_Store  Online Shopee Philippines for PHP 260.00 ($5.20) 3.78L not including shipping and handling. Every time I have my Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey it brings back memories of my close friend who lives too far away from me. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertisi

  Carmina is ready for summer drinking some Lemonade with a different version with her favorite Canada Dry Ginger Ale. Lemonade is popular to drink in California where we grew up when I was a kid we use to have a lemonade stand and charge people drinking in our neighborhood during that time life was easy. Being a kid you can pretend playing you're a store selling products especially when it is summer time. When you're older we just buy our own Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Lemonade made in USA from  Jesxeria20Tv_Store  for PHP 499.00 ($9.98) for twelve cans not including shipping and handling. It had arrived in a box being shipped to me and there was no damages when it had arrive which is great when you are dealing with soda in a can. How does it taste? To me it doesn't taste sour like lemonade would be something you can drink if your like me. It kind of taste like any lemon lime products but with ginger ale in it. All I can say I like how it taste being summer in the Philippin

Carmina's Mom Story How She Got Her Vaccine

  I will share you a story how my mom was able to get her Sinovac vaccine today on Saturday, May 29, 2021. My mom has been inquiring from her barangay where she lives and each day she will keep following up to make sure they would remember who she is from being motivated to get her way. My mom later after few months later someone had sent her an application to fill up where she was living. My mom began thinking which type of vaccine would be best for her since she had medical conditions she had to deal with what other doctors and friends are recommending. My mom was able to solve which one was best for her. My sister from the United States was very concern for her mother even asking her to fly to see them to have her vaccine there since she is a US Citizen. My mom didn't feel comfortable flying in a plane for sixteen hours wearing a facial mask and face shield to her she can't picture she doing it. My mom knew she didn't want to fly alone and I had told her I can accompany
