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!

A Simple Party for Our 60th Wedding Anniversay
Tomorrow will be our 60th Wedding Anniversary, but we celebrated it today (Sunday) so our close families who are working can attend. It was a simple party compared to our 50th, but a very memorable one, since we have a surprise guest from Australia-my nephew and name sake who took the above photo. Dinah and Elaine took care of the set up and beautiful décor ( see the following photos). Ditas brought the cake, Dodie and Ruth the drinks and David III helped in the food set-up and cleaning the house before the party. I ordered Pinoy food consisting of Puto and Dinugu-an( blood pudding), pancit ( noodles) and Kare-kare ( tripe and beef in peanut sauce with assorted vegetables as well as Honey Baked Ham and Potato Salad and Cranberry Sauce. Jean brought about 50 turons, Lanie and Alex brought mango and ube rolls. Angie and Jim brought pork and chicken barbecue. We have a feast and I hope everybody had a good time. Below are some of the photos taken before and during the party.
Thanks to all our relatives who were able to attend! Dave and Macrine
