Carmina Reunites with Amy Her Childhood Best Friend

Carmina has always told many of you that she was able to find and connect from her old friends during the pandemic. What happens when you have the big chance to actually see your childhood best friend in person while you're visiting California.

Carmina is Not a Leggings Girl

Yesterday after bonding with Joanie we both wore leggings for our exploring. It was Carmina's first-time wearing leggings in public for the whole morning and afternoon. Carmina felt uncomfortable shopping and eating inside a restaurant. She felt having leggings clung to your body made her feel uneasy. Carmina notices her leggings we're slowing falling down her waist. It is not something she can see herself wearing outside again in public. Carmina had covered herself with a water resistance jacket given by her best friend May. Carmina often sees strangers outside wearing leggings doing their errands after experience wearing it, she rather has something else to wear if she would have to explore outside in the cold. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for leggings just wanted to share my own experiences. Subscribe & follow @ Carmina Lifestyle  a place to look, discover and share.

Walking in Lake Merrit Park in Oakland, California

Living in the Bay Area there are actually places close by to walk or to hike only when you have the right person to accompany you. Carmina and Joanie have been best friends since high school. Not many people can still keep in touch for a long time. The best part with Joanie she always finds time to spend when Carmina is in town. We love to talk, explore and eat when we do have the time together. Carmina and Joanie had purchased some milk tea from  Yokee Milk Tea  drank it at Lake Merrit Park. Carmina was walking near the  Lake Merritt Park in Oakland, California. The funnies thing happens most of the birds began walking toward Joanie and me. We couldn't stop laughing.

Best Seller Mango Pomelo Sago from Yokee Milk Tea in Oakland, California

Carmina had informed Joanie ahead of time that she wanted to drink boba tea during our last bonding moment. Joanie had searched around our area where would be the best place to try something new. Carmina and Joanie notice there we're other customers inside Yokee Milk Tea giving social distance since the shop is quite small. The menu is listed on the door once you know what you want just line coordinately next to the person giving social distance from each other. Carmina went inside Yokee Milk Tea asking what their best seller is the lady at the counter informed me it is the Mango Pomelo Sago and Fresh Milk Volcano. Joanie had asked a person who just recently purchase a drink and said he had ordered the Matcha Volcano. At a glance we notice you can request for your sugar level and how much ice you would want in your drink.

Chicken Enchiladas from Talavera Mexican Grill

  After hiking with Joanie you tend to build an appetite wanting to eat Mexican food. Carmina had notice while walking around locally came Talavera Mexican Grill that was located at the corner where she saw a lot of people eating outside and indoors. Even though the doors are wide open the air that was coming out made it safe to eat indoors. Carmina hasn't eaten Enchiladas for a long time and decided to eat with shredded chicken with red Chile ancho sauce for $14.90 for a plate with rice. Carmina didn't want any beans with her chicken enchiladas. There is an option to drink plain water or water with fruits inside. Carmina drank the one with fruits giving you a taste of something cold and refreshing to drink. Carmina's observation the restaurant is quite busy people entering inside for takeout or for dine in. Here is the menu for you to see what you would like to try in the future: NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for Mexican food served at Talavera Mexican Grill.

Joanie had planned everything for our last time to bond with each other before Carmina will be flying back to the Philippines. Joanie has never been to Robert Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve since the day was a bit cooler giving us a chance to explore with each other. Joanie had texted Carmina to bring sandwiches or some snacks to bring along with our hike. Joanie had picked up Carmina at nine in the morning. Carmina notice there was a lot of fog coming up and didn't let it bother us. Carmina realized after hiking with Joanie when you have put wellness in, your life. Hiking around  Robert Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve made it easier by passing each trail you come across. No matter if you're going up the hill or down for reason to believe you don't seem that tired. Carmina's tip to you is to bring a light backpack with water and snacks just when you feel you get hungry during your hike. Make sure you wear light layers of clothing a way once you need to remove your

East Ocean Seafood Restaurant in Alameda, California

Mom Violy and Carmina was able to bond with Uncle Ando for a short time. Mom Violy wanted to eat Chinese food and Uncle Ando recommended her to try East Ocean Seafood Restaurant in Alameda, California. Mom Violy wanted to eat inside East Ocean Seafood Restaurant, but Uncle Ando prefer having it for takeout due to cases of covid.

Mom Violy's First Sneaker for Her Stress Test

Mom Violy had purchased her first sneakers. Mom Violy got so excited and tired walking around in the house. The day of Mom Violy's stress test she had a difficult time putting it on inside the van. Good thing she had arrived early for her doctor's appointment struggling putting her sneakers on. Mom Violy kept complaining why she hadn't worn it earlier at the house. Mom Violy picked a sneaker that are just slipped on but has a lace, but nowhere to adjust it to make room for your feet to go in. When you're a senior you need assistance to help put your sneakers on and Mom Violy was already sweating before her stress test. It took Mom Violy thirty minutes to put her sneakers with help from Carmina. Mom Violy said her sneakers are comfortable.
