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. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

Time for Some Classical Music-A PianoTrio
Just recently, I enjoyed listening to this Piano Trio with Carlos Avila, Ji-Won Song(the violin) and Christine Lee (cello)both from South Korea. In case you have not heard Carlos is Macrine's nephew. Carlos is the son of Charro, Macrine's youngest sister. Here's the video and Enjoy!

Comments from a FaceBook Friend: Wow! Suddenly, my music literacy went beyond Elvis and The Platters. I’m not immersed in this kind of music but just listening to it touched my soul. I wish Macrine’s genes spread long and wide for generations.
My Reply: Yes, these are the Nieva genes in action on the Macrine's mother side of the family, I believed. We are really proud of Carlos musical achievements. I hope arrangement for him to give a concert at the Cultural Center of the Philippines will materialized next year.
