Manila Vanilla

What it's like to be a U.S. Fulbright scholar, basketball player, journalist, and the whitest man in Metro Manila.

Look at my banana pants!

What basketball exhibition would be complete without interpretive breakdance? At Arenas' "statement show," supposedly the main event of his tour, where he put on a short shooting exhibition, the thousands of onlookers actually spent more time watching this dance troupe than Arenas himself. In the background, please note two-time PBA most valuable player Benjie Paras (with the shaved head and black t-shirt) assuming his "this is unbelievably wack" pose. I concur, Benjie. It's the same pose I strike while watching Bubble Gang.
