My Pineapple Plant in the US and in the Philippines


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.

My Best Buys of the Week-Mangoes and Kahlua


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.

The Pleasure of a One Hour Full Body Massage

In my recent posting I listed that one of the luxuries in life that Macrine and I are enjoying is our monthly one hour massage in the privacy of our bedroom. It is a bit expensive( extra fee for home service) but it is worth it. Today after my massage I felt so good and has plenty of energy to write this post.

Our excellent and capable massage therapist is Mark Richards. First he does the back, the legs, the feet, the arms and finally the neck and shoulders. Mark Richards could be reach at Natural Healing and Massage, Sacramento( 916-620-5003). I highly recommend him if you reside in the Sacramento area. Here's his website: http://www.sacramentocmt.com/?page_id=33

The following video below is almost identical to what our massage therapist does

A Third Indian Casino Near Us Approved by Governor Brown

Wilton Rancheria Resort and Casino

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.
