First Love Filipina

At work.

I met an older man who works for the NY post. He starts talking to me in Spanish (my name - people get it confused). When he figured that I don’t speak Spanish, he asks where I’m from.

I say Philippines. 

He tells me - “My first love was a Filipina. I will never forget her. That was in 1951!” 

I did the math, that’s 63 years.

Edit: 

Found him. He’s a riot : Audrey Reuben

REBELRAVE : DAY ZERO
It is dance music festival season and there are only a few festivals left to go!
But, just a thought I’d like to share about getting the best bang for your buck. 
Aim higher… Go get a festival experience that is unique and that will truly leave an imprint in your memory. Get an experience that you can truly call your own. Coachella, Ultra or Electric Daisy Carnival are all staple brands that have pushed the envelop. I would honestly go to them religiously if the overall experience is ultimately solid; however, with the influx of “new types” of people + company greed, it is difficult not to admit that the experience is not as flawless as it was before.
Fret not, as there are festivals all over the world where music reigns supreme and the vibe is like heaven-on-earth.
Enter: Damian Lazarus’ / Crosstown Rebel’s DAY ZERO - held at Playa del Carmen, Mexico among the pyramid ruins of the Mayans. Its deep pulsating Techno matched with the unique environment will surely send you to space (and shivers down your spine). Talk about unique. 
After I graduated from in-your-face EDM (which quite honestly is disposable these days), I was looking for something new and different. What better place to be schooled about this other than in New York?! One of the world’s hub for deep, underground dance music.
In the end, it’s music fed to you vs. music you consciously ride, music that sounds good on first listen vs. music that grows on you, bottle service vs. you already know you are special and need no extra attention, poor taste vs. exquisite taste, disposable vs. lasting, facade vs. value.
You choose.
