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. Please do not forget to read the latest National and International news in the right side bar of this blog!

Time for Music Appreciation: The Secret Garden
Today, I am taking time out from my usual topic (about Marinduque) and will talk about music appreciation. Have you taken a music appreciation class? I did a few decades ago during my graduate school days in Chicago, Illinois as one of my non-science electives. It was a subject, that I enjoyed and treasured in my memories. The following two videos are two interpretation of one song. This music is so close to my heart especially when I feel sad and nostalgic.
How can a thing be so beautiful yet depressing to listen? If you have not heard of the Secret Garden( the book, the movie, the animated film etc..), I hope the following two videos will arouse your interest. Enjoy!
This second video is by Ben Chan on his 26th Birthday (08-08-08-what a lucky violinist).
I hope you enjoy the above two videos. Greetings from the GrandPa Blogger!
