The Cheetah Man
Here in Cebu when you hear the word CHEETAH this is not neccessary to think of wild type of animal. This is a name of a Gay bar located infront of Gaisano Country Mall at Banilad. When I was in my first company, I used to hear the name of this bar from my coworkers. That time I was not interested definitely because I’m a straight guy. They were teasing some of our officemates who already visited the place. I stayed on that company for 5 months only then I transfer on a publishing company.
When I was in the publishing company, I was amaze that people there also talking about the same bar. At first I tried to ignore it, but later on when I heard that team building of that company was held on that bar and some scene wasnt able to be taken by a friend of mine, I tried to plan of seeing whats in there.
Most of my officemates tried to describe the bar for me. But most of them gave te suggestion that to me to visit the bar. I was not so interested but out of curiousity I want to try it also.
My First Time in Cheetah
February 05 if I’m not mistaken when the first time I visited the bar.
That was not intentional, it just happened that I’m on the same building and I’m 5 steps away from the entrance of bar. So I went in. That was so early, around 10 pm maybe. There are only few guest and the ambience was just like a common cozy bar on the metro. I ordered a bottle of beer and a mineral water.
There are some guys who randomly dancing on the stage. Well, for me its like a simple entertainment, nothing were offensive.
The Cheetah Boy
There were some guy who approached me and asked me if I need someone to talk so I wont get bored. They tried to introduce their self and try to open up some topic. Maybe I’m kind of uninterested so they were not able to stay longer on the my table.
There was this guy, I dont want mention the name but when he approached me I was able to feel that he’s no just an ordinary dancer instead I felt like there something special on him. He was very sensible and knowledgeable. He must be inteligent.
He stayed on my table most of the night. He kept on telling stories and what he think about the place and those persons inside, from guest, dancers to the owner. I believed that was his job, to entertain their guest and be polite. But he did it in a very nice way. I really want to commend him on that.
I spent a little amount of money inside the bar. Amount that wont be more than on my daily rate sinced I started to work.
What can I say? Uhmmm… I wont say that was not entertaining. But instead, Im not interested. They dance well and even did a daring look to their guest eye to eye. But what can I do Im not attracted.
There were they called spotlight. At first I dont have any idea what that was, but when the segment started then there were really adult show on the stage. Yes adult show, I dont want to give detail but ADULT SHOW.
They also had what they called “AREA” they were roaming around over each guest table and do something uhmmm… naughty maybe?
I even refuse to entertain those who guys who went on my table. they were asking for some tip in return you can do something not nice to them to them… really not nice. But they maybe like it or they like the tip. whichever.
The Bar will be close at 3 am, so around 2:30 am I asked for my bill. The Cheetah Boy who were in my table went to the cashier so it will be faster. He ask for a little amount of tip and asked me to give some little amount for the waiters. Then i gave all my change to them.
Before I went out, He ask me if he can get my number then I gave it to him. He was really nice even if Im out of the bar already.
I really believe that time, He is not like of those other dancer on this Bar. He is a dancer, not a call boy.
The Friendship I had with the Cheetah Boy
I didnt have a continous communication with that man. The reason is that, I dont have any reason to stay attached with him. I can only do was to reply everytime he texted me, I cant open up anything more than that.
There were time I already forgot his face or everything on his appearance. That was after almost a month after I saw him on the bar.
I went on a Gym near country mall. After I had finish my session, suddenly my phone beep and a text message asking me if I’m the guy in a white sando. I was surprise, the cheetah boy still remembered me. I was really surprise. There were lots of customer coming in and out of that bar but will this guy able to remeber everyone of them?
That made my interest to know the person got more reasonable. He been texting me once in a while asking some question just to know me better. he was very friendly and very nice.
He used to ask me to go out and have some drinks. He is not the kind of dancer that will just ask you out for him to earn. He is a very unique one, I paid for the drinks which will only amounting less than my hourly rate in our office. I even gave him some amount for taxi.
The set up was lasted for almost two months maybe. We had each other out for atleast once a week.
The real Color of the Cheetah boy
There were time after holy week that he kept texting me and even calling me for a drink. But unfortunately, my schedule didnt allow me. I had a very tight schedule on our office that time. There were also a time that I went out with some of my new friends, He was texting early that day but I was not able to reply.
He texted me again on late midnight and I did reply. I told him that we can talk on other time because I was running out of prepaid load. He took it badly, he interpret it not so nice. He even thought that Im pushing him out of my night.
He told me that, he wont text me anymore. I’m like a man talking and want him out like a dog. I dont really understand why he got a thinking like that. I was trying to understand but I cant really figure it out.
Early that day he texted me with apology. He said sorry for what he said. I thought he was able to forget what happen after that but I was wrong, he was still mad. tsk tsk..
I didnt know how the problem rose again. But the thing that made me laugh was he ask and keep on insisting that I’am a gay. His reason why I didnt want to go out again with him was I’am jealous with those pictures he has on his facebook account. I was laughing then thinking what happening to him? halucinating? I wasnt able to look on his facebook profile so where did he get that idea?
I want to see him personally and talk about what happen but time was not allowing me.
In general, he is a good person. maybe he is a dancer in a bar but not a kind of what other will think once they know it. It would be my regret that a good person like him wont be my friend because of his interpretation.
Maybe I’m bad declining his invitation but it doesnt mean that Im not interested to be his friend anymore or worst jealous with pictures.
