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 Second Year Anniversary Writing for Hubpages.com
Last week was my second year anniversary writing for HubPages.com(formerly from squidoo.com). As of today,I have written 32 articles (hubs) on almost all subjects except politics. My total reader's views as of today is only 17,772. I have also on record only 200 comments and only 58 followers. I earned a few dollars per month, just enough to buy me a cup of coffee. However, I enjoy writing for Hubpages even if it is not a money making activity.
HubPages is a user generated content, revenue-sharing website. On December 7, 2013, the website published data that showed that the website consisted of 910,106 "Hubs" (magazine-style articles on a specific topic), 73,969 published users, and 2,498,967 forum posts. Two years ago it acquired a famous content publishing website Squidoo. Hubpages has currently 24 employees and based in San Francisco.
Hubpages give scores for articles and authors separately. The scores for articles and authors varies from 50 to 100. I am happy and glad to report that the average score of my 32 hubs is 71 and my author score varies from day to day from 80 to 86. The lowest hub score I have now is 67 and the highest 81. My highest scoring article is about my childhood experiences during the American-Japanese War in the Philippines filed under Commercial and Creative writing. My two most widely read hubs are Caste System in the Philippines ( over 2500 views) and My Bucket List-101 Things to Do before I Die( over 8200 views).
Today, however, not all of my 32 hubs are featured because of low traffic (readership). I will appreciate if you help me re-featured the hubs listed below by reading them and if possible write a comment. Your comments positive or negative will be published and much appreciated! The following are my hubs not featured due to low traffic.
