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.

A Very Simple Party for Our 60th Wedding Anniversary
Tomorrow will be our 60th Wedding Anniversary, but we celebrated it today (Sunday) so our close families who are working can attend. It was a simple party compared to our 50th, but a very memorable one, since we have a surprise guest from Australia-my nephew and name sake who took the above photo. Dinah and Elaine took care of the set up and beautiful décor ( see the following photos). Ditas brought the cake, Dodie and Ruth the drinks and David III helped in the food set-up and cleaning the house before the party. I ordered Pinoy food consisting of Puto and Dinugu-an( blood pudding), pancit ( noodles) and Kare-kare ( tripe and beef in peanut sauce with assorted vegetables as well as Honey Baked Ham and Potato Salad and Cranberry Sauce. Jean brought about 50 turons, Lanie and Alex brought mango and ube rolls. Angie and Jim brought pork and chicken barbecue. We have a feast and I hope everybody had a good time. Below are some of the photos taken before and during the party.
Thanks to all our relatives who were able to attend! Dave and Macrine
