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!

My Alma Mater, UIC asking for Help
One of my Alma Mater, the University of Illinois, College of Pharmacy is asking my help and Donation. I wish I could help, but being retired and on a fixed budget there is nothing I could spare these days. Along the same line my other Alma Mater UC Berkeley Haas Business School have also asked for help through a personal call besides E-mail that I posted in my blog the other day. Here's an e-mail from UIC College of Pharmacy.
Dear Dr. Katague,
For many of us, the holidays are a time to appreciate one another, reflect upon the past year and to support causes that make a difference.
Be Merry. Be Generous. Give today to the College’s Annual Fund. Each year donations to the annual fund from alumni and donors like you help…
Support academic enrichment projects, such as guest lecturers and career day opportunities; student life, through improved facility enhancements and alumni/student networking events; Student organization support, by way of supporting extracurricular programs and activities that add significantly to our students' experiences; and financial aid in the form of general scholarship support.
Please consider making a gift to the College of Pharmacy this holiday season!
Thank you for your continued support. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!!
