If this is your first time in this site, welcome. It has been my dream that my province, Marinduque, Philippines becomes a world tourist destination not only during Easter Week but also whole year round. 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. Please do not forget to read the latest national, international, and technology news in this site . I have posted some of my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes on this site also. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringement of your copyrights. Cheers!

We are now in My Island Paradise

The David B.Katague Clan, Thanksgiving Day,2009
We left Sacramento November 29 and did not arrived Manila until Dec 1. We missed our connection in Honolulu so we have to stay overnight. Hawaiian Air gave us hotel and meals voucher because of the delay. We stayed in Makati until December 4. In Makati, we had lunch with Macrine's cousin Yong Nieva at his new restaurant, The Romulo Cafe in Quezon City. In the resturant we meet a couple of TV newscasters. The food was delicious and reasonably price. On our plane ride to Marinduque, Zest Air gave us a hard time regarding our ticket purchase on line using my sister-in-law credit card. Zest Air has to wake her up at 5:30AM just to get a copy of the credit card. What an archaic way of verifying ticket purchase on-line. I complained about the procedure to no avail. Anyway the 30 minute fly time is worth the hazzle in the airport.

Currently Macrine and I are enjoying the sites and sounds of rural Philippines. My internet connection here in the bondocks and so slow, I had to go to downtown Boac to read my e-mails. So my friends, readers and fellow bloggers, this is just to let you know, I am enjoying the slow lifestyle here in rural Marinduque, Philippines. Wishing everyone a Happy Holidays in advance.

Hi David,

That's nice you are in the beautiful Marinduque and enjoying your vacation. Listen, I haven't got any updates on the reopening of the mines. Is it pushing through? Please fill me in.
