60th and 65th birthday celebrations and the YOLO of it all

It’s been said that a 60th Birthday is a milestone by any standards, it is  easy to conclude then therefore that a 65th birthday had to be a landmark in one’s life!

So my weekends had been a whirlwind of birthdays and celebrations.

The latest song from Black Eyed Peas, truly sums it all up -” A Little Party Ain’t Gonna Kill Nobody!”

PLR Balikbayan Boxes proprietor, Pablo Pobre turned 60 years old last 29th June with a Great Gatsby inspired theme party.

There were lots of Black, Red and Gold colors, while the guests dressed up in the roaring twenties with lots of pearls, feathers and hats.

Special prizes were handed out to best costumes.

When Dante was asked if he is now planning to retire, the indefatigable President who has served the community for over 30 odd years said  ” No, after all, age is just a number”!

Indeed as a wise man’s saying goes…

“Never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again.” -Bikram Choudhury.
