Joke lang. The year 2007 was my super long, super extended, backpacking adventure though the Philippines. This particular event took place in the province of BANTAYAN, which has one of the most beautiful and remote beaches I have ever been to.
The Philippine provinces occasionally bring out celebrities from Manila to put on a concert for the people of that town and what often happens is the celebrity, in this case Rachelle Anne Go, will pick out a lucky guy from the audience to serenade him with a lovely ballad. Fortunately I was the lucky dude on this particular evening.
Being called up on stage by Rachelle Anne was the first of three different occasions under similar circumstances. I was not aware of what I was supposed to do so this video has a weird awkwardness to it.
