You can help me achieve my dream by telling your friends about this site. The photo above is your own private beach at The Chateau Du Mer Beach Resort. The sand is not as white as Boracay, but it is only a few steps from your front yard and away from the mayhem and crowds of Boracay.

My Pineapple Plant in the US and in the Philippines

My Best Buys of the Week-Red Mangoes and Kahlua


Red mangoes and Kahlua were my best buys of the week- two purchases I made with the promotion of Buy One, Take One Free!

Kahlua with equal amounts of Half & Half in ice cubes is the after dinner drink that Macrine and I enjoyed very much.

For the six varieties of mangoes commonly available in US, read: http://www.mango.org/en/About-Mangos/Mango-Varieties

The Pleasure of Having a One Hour Full Body Massage

In my recent posting I listed that one of the luxuries in life that Macrine and I are enjoying is our monthly one hour massage in the privacy of our bedroom. It is a bit expensive( extra fee for home service) but it is worth it. Today after my massage I felt so good and has plenty of energy to write this post.

Our excellent and capable massage therapist is Mark Richards. First he does the back, the legs, the feet, the arms and finally the neck and shoulders. Mark Richards could be reach at Natural Healing and Massage, Sacramento( 916-620-5003). I highly recommend him if you reside in the Sacramento area. Here's his website: http://www.sacramentocmt.com/?page_id=33

The following video below is almost identical to what our massage therapist does
