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!

The Road to Hana, Maui, Hawaii
Seven years ago, Macrine, David III and I spent one week of vacation (time share-exchange) in the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii. We have scheduled one day of our week vacation for the popular, scenic and breathtaking drive- the Road to Hana. However, when I learned that the are numerous narrow and winding roads and bridges along the Hana Highway and because I am prone to motion sickness (in the car), we decided not to do it.
Several days ago, Ditas and Carenna sent me some pictures of their road trip( see below). It reminded me of our aborted scheduled trip.
Suffice to say, here's a video that is very informative and worth watching if you plan to do the scenic and breathtaking drive-The Road to Hana for the first time. You can do it yourself or you can joined a guided tour at a reasonable price if you do not enjoy driving. If you are prone to car sickness and afraid of heights this tour is not recommended for you.
