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.

Figure Skating Exhibition, Winter Olympics, 2010
Figure Skating is one of my favorite winter sports. In 2010 the Winter Olympic games was held in Vancouver, Canada. At that time, my wife and I had been traveling, so we were not able to see most of the scheduled events in television. When I saw this video in You Tube the other day, I was so delighted, I have to share it with you.
The US won gold in the men's single ( Evan Lysacek), and silver in ice dancing. In the women's single, the US highest representative was ranked fourth and in the Pairs Event, the US highest pair was only in 10th place. But if you enjoy figure skating, this video is a must. It is good way to spend time indoors, to stay away from the over 100 degrees Fahrenheit temperature engulfing us now here in Northern California.
