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!

Selected Photos from our Two Abodes
If you have been following my blogs, you probably know we called ourselves snowbirds. We have a retirement home in the Philippines, but our primary residence is in Northern California. The following are some photos showing the differences between our two lifestyles. Since pictures are worth more than a thousand words, all you will read are labels of the photos; Enjoy my photos:
The first photo is our ranch style home in the Philippines and the second is our home in Northern California
Our backyard in Marinduque versus our backyard in Northern California
The first photo is our side yard in the Philippines versus our side yard in Northern California
The first photo is the twin orchids in my front yard in the Philippines versus the yellow orchid in my yard in Northern California
My jack fruit tree in the Philippines versus my lemon tree in Northern California
My PC in the Philippines versus my PC in Northern California
Last but not least is Party time:
The first photo is in northern California with salad and Dungeness crab, versus filipino cuisine of Marinduque.
Our friends often asked us which abode do we prefer. Our answer is always, both places. Marinduque is excellent place during winter time and Northern California is an excellent abode during Spring, Summer and Fall.
