Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog.

Have You Heard of Gerphil Geraldine Flores?
She sings classical songs with a perfect pitch according to David Foster, one of the judges in the recent Asia's Got Talent Competition. Her songs I like as did millions of viewers who voted for her. However she was ousted in the Phlippine's Got Talent Contest because she sings clasical songs according to the latest news gossips. Here's some of her videos and judge for yourself.
Gerphil Geraldine Flores is a Filipina classical singer and a fifth-year student from the University of the Philippines, Diliman (UPD). She finished third in the first season of Asia's Got Talent (AGT), the first pan-regional edition of the global “Got Talent” format.
She became inclined to classical music at an early age. She began singing classical songs when she was only 8 years old. She never had any formal traning and her mother was her vocal coach.
In 2010, she joined Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT) where she only reached the semi-finals. When she auditioned for AGT, she sang “Speak Softly, Love” from the classical film Godfather. Her performance prompted David Foster to press the golden buzzer which automatically sent her to the semi-finals.
During the grand finals on 7 May 2015, she performed “The Impossible Dream” from the musical Man of La Mancha. It earned a standing ovation from the judges and audience members alike. Foster assured Flores of international fame.
In an interview with INQUIRER.net, Flores said that she dreamt of performing in opera houses like The Metropolitan in New York and La Scala in Milan. She also dreams to perform with Andrea Bocelli.
