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!

Are There Nude Beaches in Marinduque?
April 1-It is summer time here in the Philippines( no spring season here in the tropics). It is time to think about swimming, beach walking and snorkeling. The Philippines has hundreds of beaches affordable to the the middle-class Filipino families. However, if you are rich and money is no problem, I suggest you joined the Alphaland Vacation Club at Balesin Island. For details about Balesin Island read my posting dated October 2, 2012.
Today is just a beautiful day for sunbathing here in Amoingon and it reminded me of the article I wrote about optional clothing beaches in Marinduque, dated August 29, 2010. Incidentally the following article is my most popular post with over 6000 page views as of today. Enjoy!

I posted a question in FaceBook recently about "clothing optional" beaches in Marinduque as follows:
Several friends here in Northern California are asking me if there are "clothing optional" beaches in Marinduque or any where else in the Philippines. I really do not know. But,I know of several secluded coves in Marinduque that you can sun bath in the nude if you wish. Any body from Marinduque or the Philippines have the answer?
I received three comments from FaceBook friends. Here are their comments.
1. David there are private beaches/cove in Torrijos or some of the islets around like south side beach of Gaspar Island in Tres Reyes. It is secluded and my foreign friends are using those areas but they should be discreet.

2.As long as they are discreet and not being a nuisance, I've found that you can pretty much do as you wish.(Note to everyone... No one wants to see what I've got!) Not certain about "official" nude beaches, but there are so many secluded, nearly empty stretches of beach here, and hundreds of little islets in the country, finding someplace shouldn't pose a problem.
3.Anybody may do what they want provided it is not causing public disturbance. Marinduque is still considered as conservative place with people warm and friendly, yet will react if they see nude body under the sun.

I have also heard that there are clothing optional beaches in Palawan and Boracay!
In this video are optional clothing beaches of Southern California and Santorini, Greece ( definitely not in Bellarocca Resort of Buenavista, Marinduque). Enjoy!
