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!

Another Stage in my Life as Grand Papa Attained
Last week, my wife and I received a note from our oldest son, Dodie. He informed us that his second child, Alix ( Alexandra) has finally chosen UCLA as her college of choice for this Fall. Alix had applied to several schools in the US among others UC Berkeley, Standford and MIT. I was surprised she wants to major in Physics. I know she is one of my smartest grand child and I was hoping she will major in Chemistry following my footsteps. But there is nothing wrong with Physics. She will have better chances of getting a good job as a Physicist than as a Chemist, since she will have fewer competition.
I gave her my salute and her choice of Physics as her college major my whole-hearted support. God Luck to You Alix and May God guide you in your college years and beyond. Your graduation from high school next month will be another stage in our life as proud grandparents. Alix your grandma and I are indeed proud of your accomplishments so far. Keep up with good work!
Note: Currently we have three grand children in college. One is a freshman at UC Cruz, the other is also a freshman at Oregon State and my oldest grandson is now a sophomore in Sacramento State University.
