    That was in the early 60's na. As the saying then goes, " Ang gawa ng Hapon, sira agad pagdating ng Hapon". Then came the entry of TOYOTA via taxi of UBL.

    In the 60s, City Cab, Dollar and La Mallorca are the taxis. It's either a benz or austin morris.

    They used to perform at Cafe Rinos along South Super hiway and lunch show at Tradewinds Hotel and also at Manila garden if i'm not mistaken.
    Carmi Martin was a product of this group.

    What i missed is the Totorohan sa Conception St Pasay and at In & Out bar across Delta theater. Meron pa ba mga live show now a days?
    Ago-go dancers na ginantsilyo ang bikini with names at the back.

    May mga times pa na doon na ako natutulog, nakaibigan na rin kasi si manager.

    Hindi pa masyado uso ang chick na naglalaro kaya pag may naligaw, pyesta mga tambay.

    Oh yeah billiards became very popular in the 90s. I still remember Coronado lanes in Greenbelt. My dad was into billiards before I was even born. He converted our billiard table into a regular table na lang when he got tired of playing billiards.

    I think this is the 70s na with Jackson 5 guesting Student Canteen. The guy with the boe-tie & coat is Ricky Manalo, then Connie Reyes , Michael Jackson, Eddie Ilarde then Bobby Ledesma.

    Coffe shop of Makati Supermarket, champion ang spaghetti , burger steak with matching root beer. Now it's only the spaghetti that's left to be remembered in Alabang ATC.
