Planning to Visit the Philippines Soon?
There are hundreds of tourists attractions in the Philippines. But as a lover of the Island of Marinduque (Home of the Morions and Heart of the Philippines), I am indeed partial to its beauty, charm and its friendly and hospitable residents. Therefore, help me achieve my dream of seeing this island becomes a world tourist destination, by telling all your friends and relatives about this site. Welcome, to you all, new readers and faithful followers of this site! The photo above is Poctoy White Beach in Torrijos, Marinduque with beautiful and majestic Mt Malindig in the background. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringing your copyrights.

My pineapple plant grown from the commercial fruit I purchased from the grocery here in the US. Will it bear fruit before the winter Season? This potted pineapple plant greet visitors as it is located in our entrance patio!
This skinny pineapple plant in my garden in Boac, Marinduque, Philippines is starting to bear fruit. I also started it from commercial pineapple fruit I purchased in the public market in Boac.

Red mangoes and Kahlua were my best buys of the week- two purchases I made with the promotion of Buy One, Take One Free!
Kahlua with equal amounts of Half & Half in ice cubes is the after dinner drink that Macrine and I enjoyed very much.

Yesterday, Governor Brown approved the Wilton Rancheria Resort and Casino in Elk Grove, Ca. This will be the 3rd Indian Casino about 25 miles away from our residence. The completion date is scheduled for 2020.
For details read:http://marinduqueawaitsyou.blogspot.com/2016/10/a-third-indian-casino-may-be-near-us-by.html
In the meantime, Macrine and I are enjoying our weekly escapade for gambling and dining either to Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln or to Red Hawk Casino in Placerville. During the last two weeks, we have enjoyed the gambling and dining amenities at Red Hawk.
Last week Macrine won $100 in the slots and I lost $30. However, My card has been upgraded to Platinum. It meant more benefits and higher promo free plays. I received $60 free play at Red Hawk and only $15 free play at Thunder Valley.
Last week we dined at KOTO restaurant. David ordered steak and shrimp. He said it was the best steak he has tasted for quite a while. We ordered the fried Calamari appetizer and it was good. However for our main dish. Macrine and I ordered the Beef Enchiladas. The sauce was too salty and the beef was dried and hard. There are 4 other restaurants in the Casino, including the Buffet, more expensive than the Buffet at Thunder Valley.
I think we will continue patronizing Red Hawk instead of Thunder Valley this month because of the free play I will be receiving each week.
