In fact, the 58-year-old man is such an audible conversationalist, such a wellspring of anecdotes both personal and incidental, that he may as well be Lolo Basyang. I would not have been surprised if the other customers at the Quezon City restaurant where we had dinner had huddled closer to our table so they could listen to his stories.
