Ricky remembers that cluster of fast food stalls across the street from Glo-ri’s Tandang Sora. There was Burger Machine, of course. But there was also Beef Beep, Joe Kuan, and Elar’s Lechon. This one’s courtesy of Mr. Archie Uy. Thanks for reminding us, Arch! Pero iba talaga yung Abetamax! Hahahaha, yun ang nabaon na talaga sa limot!

Philippine Beach Resorts

Ricky remembers when Puerto Azul was the premiere beach resort destination for the citizens of Manila. He even remembers that Puerto Azul t-shirt that almost everyone went home with after. It was white, with the Puerto Azul logo at the back, and the logos of the sports activities that you can engage in while you were vacationing there. They had tennis, bowling, golf, swimming, and many more.


Ricky remembers when people would call a kid whose name they didn’t know “Bata”. As in, “Bata, bata…” or “Huy bata!”

Ricky also remembers that in Ateneo, it was more upscale. They would call each other, “Pal”.
