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 Sister-in-Law 70th Birthday Celebration
Last September 10, my sister-in-law, Fe(Pepot)Jambalos celebrated her 70th birthday in the Philippines. She was really shockingly surprise when her two daughters and three grandchildren from US just showed up in the airport in Manila the previous week. Evidently this surprise had been planned by her two daughters Elaine Chalfin and Ella Lazarte here in US and Apartment-mate Helen Nunez in the Philippines several months ago. Today, I have reports that the party was a huge and grand success. Over 100 relatives and friends attended the party. For the first time cousins from US meet their cousins raised in the Philippines. Fe is the middle sister(age-wise) of the five hermanas whose picture is shown below.

Here are some photos during the birthday party:
