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!

Joseleo Logdat and the Musika sa Isla Project
Have you heard of Musika sa Isla and/or Joseleo Logdat? If you have no Marinduque roots your answer will probably be a resounding NO!
Musika sa Isla spearheaded by Joseleo C. Logdat, is a private group that aims to promote music to the grassroots; hone the musical talents of the youth, exposed them to classical music and international performances, make a symphony orchestra in each municipality to be merged into one big orchestra and make the province the center for musical arts excellence.
Here's a video on the life of Joseleo Logdat, Lyric Baritone from Marinduque.
Here's a video about Marinduque and a report of a recent performance of the Group!
