Barbeque sa Gilid san Plasa

The taste of this barbeque reminds me of my childhood fave in plasa. Street vendors show up late afternoon with their sweet and spicy barbeque. I can still remember the thin slices of meat, only four pieces per stick and costs 2.5/stick back then.

The picture is taken on December, 2009. Then, it only shows the Pili nut.

The photo is taken on December 2014. They added a couple of Tahong. I suppose Baluko is just around the corner?

Mercury Drug Stores in Sorsogon

Two decades ago, there was only a single Mercury Drug store – it was on the same spot where Greenwich Pizza is currently located – technically still along Magsaysay Street. I can’t remember when another Mercury Drug branch showed up on the original JB Line terminal. In any case, having a couple of national chain of drug store is a reflection of growing demand.

D’Best Department Store Hasn’t Change a Bit

I remember 2 department stores back in the early 80s – Good Luck and D’Best – both along Magsaysay Street and just less than 500m apart. But I remember D’Best the most – this is where I got my 1st and only bike – a BMX. I also purchased several bike parts to upgrade my unit. There was a time that it was selling patches that one has to iron on the shirt and they offered military-like patches.

It’s mostly known for its BMX bikes then.

I found a pix of the said store. The facade of the store hasn’t changed as far as I can remember.
