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!

Carenna KT Rock Band Competition
I am proudly announcing Carenna's ROCK band debut "All Ben's Fault" at the CREST theatre on August 9th, 1 pm. It is Skip's "stairway to stardom" 35th Anniversary Battle of the bands. There will be 9 others bands plus special guest bands too!
Carenna( second from Left) and the band members. Carenna is one of the two soloists.
As I announced this event it reminded me of my preteens days in the Philippines. It reminded me of my first competition in a Declamation contest(posted on 6/17/13) sponsored by our school district that I did not win.
I guess most of you have participated is a contest whether in sports and music or in dance during your preteen years. But how many of you have participated in a rock band contest? I have a feeling, none of you reading this blog.
Note: Carenna KT is my youngest grand daughter. She is not only pretty( see selfie (below) but also talented. She makes me a very, very proud grand Papa!
