WELCOME TO MY SITE AND HAVE A GOOD DAY
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!

Time for Music Appreciation: The Secret Garden
Today, I am taking time out from my usual topic (about Marinduque) and will talk about music appreciation. Have you taken a music appreciation class? I did a few decades ago during my graduate school days in Chicago, Illinois as one of my non-science electives. It was a subject, that I enjoyed and treasured in my memories. The following two videos are two interpretation of one song. This music is so close to my heart especially when I feel sad and nostalgic.
How can a thing be so beautiful yet depressing to listen? If you have not heard of the Secret Garden( the book, the movie, the animated film etc..), I hope the following two videos will arouse your interest. Enjoy!
This second video is by Ben Chan on his 26th Birthday (08-08-08-what a lucky violinist).
I hope you enjoy the above two videos. Greetings from the GrandPa Blogger!
