It was a hot day last Saturday so we stopped by McDonalds for ice cream. While I was looking at the menu, I saw next to it a list of calories in most Mcdonalds meal. Wow, this is good, making people conscious of what they eat. I am not sure if they post the calory content of the food they serve in every branch.

I had a sundae and a little of french fries. I an that day. Now I am checking how much calories was that!!!!

Instant Snack For Kids


This is my favorite snack for kids at home. When I have the 2 nephews here for a day and they want something to eat, I open a bag of nathan's crinkle cut fries and in a few minutes they have an instant snack. I love the crispness of the fries but soft when you bite them. I always pair it with a mixture of mayo and ketchup.

Kids love it and they always ask for more.

MiKeyD's at AC


This is the picture of the only McDonald's branch that still serves the caramel sundae (to my knowledge ha!). I am still in the lookout for more branches. This branch is located right at the center of Atlantic city surrounded by outlet stores. It is the only fastfood in that vicinity and also one of the busiest.I have not been to this store that it's not packed by customers.

Asbestos and Mesothelioma Disease


Asbestos is a mineral fiber found in building materials used for construction as insulation and as a fire retardant. They are popular among builders and manufacturers because of its strength and resistant to damages brought by heat, electrical or chemical. Exposure to asbestos is hazardous to your health and one of the most common diseases you get from asbestos exposure is mesothelioma disease. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that attacks mesothelium which covers our body’s internal organs like our lungs. There is no other known cause of mesothelioma other than asbestos.

If you have been exposed to asbestos and suffering from mesothelioma disease, I recommend that you to speak to a mesothelioma lawyer if you decide to pursue a legal course of action and to discuss your case. Choosing the right person to represent you in your case is very important. The mesothelioma attorney must be an expert in his field, has the experience, skills and dedication to help you in your case.

Read more information about mesothelioma disease and choosing the right lawyer at A form is available for you to be filled out at their website to receive information on recommended lawyers or law firms in your area.

McDonalds Caramel Sundae


Not all branches of McDonalds serves Caramel Sundae anymore. They always have the strawberry and chocolate sundae but for some reason they stopped serving caramel sundae in some branches. Are they running out of caramel but they always have caramel frappe? So i don't think its because of the caramel.

This is my favorite sundae so every time we are in Atlantic City, I always make sure we make a stop at their McDonalds for a caramel sundae. They always have it there. I am still in the lookout for any branch up here in North Jersey. It would be too expensive and tiring to make a 3 hour drive to AC every time i crave for a caramel sundae.

Strawberry Picking


This is a late post about our strawberry picking. We went to Donaldson farm in New Jersey. It's is about an hour away from our place. We got to the farm early anticipating the traffic on Memorial day weekend.

The farm is huge and all you see are rows of strawberry plants. As you get to the farm market, you can buy a box for $1. You will use this box to place the strawberries you picked. There were also smaller containers for $.50.

Our halfway filled box. This is the one dollar box they sold to us excluding the contents. The weather was nice and breezy; it was perfect to be outside.

A closer at the strawberry plants full of ripe strawberries ready for picking. They are vine plants that crawl on the ground like bean plants. The fruits sit on a black plastic bags they placed on the ground like a blanket underneath the plants.

Now it's weighing time. You pay for everything you pick but you can eat all you want while picking the strawberries. The per pound price is $2.99. It is a dollar more when you buy from the supermarket. You may say, just buy it from the store then but the experience of picking fresh strawberries is worth more than the dollar difference.

This is a picture of the farmer's market where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables picked from the farm. They also have plants and baked goods for sale.

Virtual Dating


This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

I work in a company where there are more men than women. I heard men stories all the time especially during breaks at our lunch room. Do not get me wrong, all my co-workers treat us with respect but sometimes when they all get together they cannot help share stories that sometimes women are not supposed to hear. Today at lunch break, one gentleman was sharing his experience about virtual dating. He is our IT guy, so what do you expect from a guy like him? He is online always; from his desktop, to his notebook then to his iPhone. Now, he is trying to find a partner through, an online dating with a twist. To be a member, there is no long forms and surveys to be filled out anymore. This is what you call virtual dating. First, you get to know your future partner by going to a virtual cafĂ© or bar, play “get to know me” games like Love Match, go chat, create a fun 3D avatar that looks and dresses like you and make your 3D avatar flirt to your date’s avatar. Wow, this is a fun way of getting to know your partner without spending money. Virtual dating also helps you avoid disappointment because you take your time in knowing one another before meeting face to face.

It was actually my first time to hear about virtual dating. Welcome to the world of technology and internet. Are you interested in trying it? According to a Harvard study in 2006 "Virtual dates cause individuals to develop greater affinity toward one another when they actually meet." The new cutting edge is interactive, virtual dating." This has been featured on msnbc, fox news, E, discovery channel, etc. If you are single, why do not you check it out and register at and when you upload a picture to your profile you get 3months free!!! Good luck, you may get your perfect match through virtual dating.

Tamarind Candy


i am so addicted to this tamarind candies known as sampalok in Philippines. They look like raisins or even smaller and the wrapper says they are made in bangkok. it has the natural taste of our sampalok with no artificial flavor added. On the front, you cannot read the name because it is written in thailand but this is actually the moniegold in different packaging. I have bought a maniegold at the filipino store before but it was in a tiny plastic container but this new packaging is so handy. It fits even in my smallest purse.
