  1. My parents and I had dinner at a restaurant along Tomas Morata in QC several years ago. There was a pianist accompanying an elderly man who was playing on a leaf he had plucked from a nearby decorative plant. We talked to this old man on our way out, to compliment him and say thanks for the entertainment. Turned out he was *the* Levi Celerio. He said he had to perform at restaurants to support his golden years.

    God bless him.
