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!

Memorable Photos of Chateau Du Mer Beach Resort, 2014


Chateau Du Mer Beach House, Boac, Marinduque, Philippines

Our snowbirding year 2014 ended on May 8 that coincided with our 57th wedding anniversary. We celebrated that day on travel from Manila to Seoul, South Korea then to Seattle, WA where we check in on Immigration. Immigration check in for all US passport holders is now automatic and you no longer have to fill up the forms manually. It was a joy to check out fast and no delay at all. From Seattle we have a connecting flight to Sacramento via Alaska Airlines. It was not a bad itinerary, but the Seattle airport is a mess and 4 hours waiting time for our connection. There were several shuttle transfers from the International airport to the local concourse for national travel, and you can easily get lost if you are not familiar with Seattle International Airport. We took this itinerary because it was on SALE when we purchase our tickets last February. The shortest but expensive route would be taking Philippine Airlines from Manila to San Francisco and then to Sacramento via United Express commuter service. Anyway. this year I took hundreds of photos of our beach resort and retirement home in Boac, Marinduque. Here are some of my favorites shots this year:
