Boy is a common nickname here, usually given to the first son. The word Kuya is a term of respect to mean big brother. My Kuya Boy used to be a star jockey, meaning he was in the top 10 jockeys of the country. With that ranking comes the earnings, of course. A very generous person, I would see my Kuya Boy surrounded with his minions. Especially when he wins a race, people would flock to him in the hope of a doleout. In the racetrack, he is one of the most popular personality for aside from his riding achievements, he knows a lot of people for he usually pays for their drinks and food. His lifestyle is to drink while there is beer and while his companions are still around him. And, of course, he was always the manager (a term to mean the one who pays the bill). But despite his lifestyle, his money kept on coming because he was a good rider and lucky as well. Kuya Boy was able to buy 3 houses... for his 3 wives. By the way, he has children with 4 women that until now I am in contact with some of those children. He has been a good provider to almost everyone, family, relatives, friends and even to people he doesn't really know. But good things never last. When he retired from riding, he continued with his lifestyle that sent him to poverty. To make the story short, he had nothing except his shirt so he moved to live with the horses in the stable. He was working as a horse trainer but he had nothing to show for his horses rarely win. And at age 61, he was found dead in his room in that stable, presumably from heart attack.
