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 Lord is Risen-Happy Easter to All
Today is Easter Sunday. We have no big plans for this important day in the Christian World, but just to attend mass on TV. I also plan on ordering our meals from Red Lobster and eat the left-overs-the Dungeness Crab Torta and Oyster Rockefeller (http://myfavoritepinoydishes.blogspot.com/2014/09/feasting-on-fresh-oysters-recipe-for.html) that I cooked yesterday. Macrine is still not strong to get out of the house, although yesterday, she was itching to go to the Casino.
Easter Sunday and Holy Week reminds me always of the Moriones Festival in our second Home in Boac, Marinduque, Philippines. Incase you are not familiar with the Moriones Festival , here's my write-up on this popular festival and other festivals in the Philippines.
Attached are three photos taken by Joven Malabana Lillies of Mogpog for this year festivities. Enjoy!
Again a Blessed Easter to All!
