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!

Have You Heard of the Philippines Ballet Company?
Not too many people have heard much of the Philippines Ballet Company. Unlike the Bayanihan dancers that are know over the world, the Philippines ballet dancers ( both male and female) are unknown to most. However, while browsing in the Internet, I came to see the following video. After watching the video, I believe this two Filipino dancers talent can be compared to other ballet dancers in US or even Russia. Watch the video and judge for yourself. Maniya Barredo as Juliet and Nonoy Froilan as Romeo. Balcony scene from the ballet Romeo & Juliet. Choreography by Tom Pazik. Performed at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, 2010
