Congratulations and welcome to our new Consul General in Hawaii, Leoncio R. Cardenas. He brings with him a wealth of experience in the Foreign Service. Actually, he is not a stranger to the islands because he was the Consul here in Hawaii in 1985. Get to know more of him in the feature article by Dr. Aurelio S. Agcaoili.
It was an honor and a privilege for me to attend the 13th Annual Jose L. Romero Memorial Concert held recently at the Stepping Stone Playhouse in Kahului. Aside from gifted and skilled musicians who performed at the event, the highlight of the concert was a vocal rendition of “Kundiman-Madaling Araw” by Jose’s wife Joyce Romero. The audience stood in awe and appreciation of her soprano/coloratura voice.
Dr. Romero was the first Filipino doctor and surgeon on Maui. He was an accomplished violinist and the concertmaster for the Maui Symphony orchestra.
The management of Fil-Am OBSERVER would like to thank Dr. Angel S. Respicio of Laoag City for giving us the opportunity to share information necessary to stay healthy. He is a resident nutritionist for The Philippine Star, Health and Family Section. He has 26 years of experience in the medical profession and currently the Nutrition Adviser of The Sleeplab at Hawaii Medical Center- West. His column promotes healthy eating while exposing truths and debunking myths on sound nutrition.
Let’s us strive and committed to live healthy lifestyles and eat right.
Aloha and Mabuhay!
