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!

1990: Photo Trip Down Memory Lane-Rome, the Vatican and Assisi, Italy

We spent one week in Rome, the Vatican, Assisi, Italy from May 12 to 19, 1990. We traveled with the Oakland Diocese Choir of Oakland, CA and Fr Paddy Bishop, of St Joseph Parish in Pinole as our Adviser and Chaperon as if we were still kids. Below are a few pictures of that memorable trip including an audience with Pope John Paul II. The Choir sang during the mass celebrated by the Pope John Paul.
