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!

Philippine Ballet Inspired by Marinduque's Morions
When you heard the phrase Philippine dance, most will usually associate it with the world famous Bayanihan dancers. The Bayanihan dancers specialized on ethnic folk dances old and new. But the Philippines has a ballet company, not as popular as the Bayanihan dancers but has presentation comparable to other ballet companies in the world. The ballet in this video was choreographed by Angel Locsin, inspired by the Morions of Marinduque. There are other ballet (Filipino) in this video set perform by the Philippines Ballet Company. The second video was recorded last year when the two principal dancers of Ballet Philippines bag roles in the Russian ballet Don Quijote for this year. Enjoy.
