Hello, my name is Melinda, and I started this blog to change the world or to get free shrimp chips online, whichever comes first. (Call me, Asian Food Grocer!) Anyway, I'm Filipino, 50+ and just itching to retire on a smallish fixed income. I don't cook; I don't drive; I don't do Facebook or Twitter; and AMAZON is my second home. And while I am no Jonathan Swift, I do enjoy a bit of snark from time to time. Click the large banner ABOUT ME for my longer profile.
