Welcome to My Site
If this is your first visit, welcome! This site is devoted to my life experiences as a Filipino-American who immigrated from the Philippines to the United States in 1960. I came to the US as a graduate student when I was 26 years old. I am now in my early-80's and thanks God for his blessings, I have four successful and professional children and six grandchildren here in the US. My wife and I had been enjoying the snow bird lifestyle between US and Philippines after my retirement from USFDA in 2002. Please do not forget to read the latest national and International News in this site . I have also posted some of my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes in this site. Some of the photos and videos in this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringing on your copyrights. Cheers!

Selected Photos-2nd and 3rd Day Medical Mission of Love, MI.Inc
Above are some of the photos that I took on the second day of clinical and dental operations at the covered court in Buenavista. Some of the photos were taken at the Boac Provincial Hospital and Covered court today.
Yesterday, my heart melted and I cried when more than 300 indigents were sent home with out any medicines after forming and lining for 4 hours since there was just too many in line. Only 1000 patients can be accommodated from 8AM to 4PM. MI, Inc do not have enough physicians volunteers this year, compared to 2006 and 2008, when we had twice as many physicians volunteers. In addition, one of our surgeons, canceled at the last minute, so our major surgical operations were definitely hindered. Luckily, we have two surgeons who are working in the outpatient clinic. The good news is that Ophthalmic surgical operations are in full swing under the able direction of Dr. Raymond Sulit. Interns from UST ( Sukob Group) are again with us this year. This group is doing an excellent job in the Ophthalmic Section of the MIssion
As my thoughts for the day addressed to all our missioners"
THE TIME YOU HAVE TOUCH THE LIVES OF OTHERS, IS THE TIME THAT YOU HAVE REALLY LIVE!
Watch out for more pictures for our 4th day in Mogpog, and our 6th day in Torrijos. Our 5th day is scheduled for the town of Santa Cruz. However, I do not feel wasting my time and energy to a town that will not appreciate our efforts.
