Angeles City The good old days in Photos

Recommended Posts

God damn that is a nice collection Larry, TFP. I meet lots of Filipinos here, and the guys are always like “Go, you’ll have lots of fun”. I’m planning on going later this year as a side trip, so probably wouldn’t be straying too far from Manila. To your knowledge, has the Manila scene gone downhill as well?

Manila is very expensive compared to AC most places you pay a bar fine and the girl as well unlike AC where you pay everything up front. I would strongly advise you passing on manila and taking the taxi down to Angeles you won't be disappointed. I know a good friend just left Manila said that he was at EDSA entertainment complex there and they told him the bar fine with 3900 for the bar alone and the girl he spoke with wanted five or six thousand. You're looking at close to 10,000 pesos which at today's exchange rate is about 250 US dollars. In Angeles at the more expensive clubs  you'll pay about 4,000  pesos which is in the neighborhood of $80 and if you take girls out on Perimeter Road  at the bars out there  you can get away all in for 50 to $60 In my opinion I wouldn't even bother with Manila.

Oh shoot, pretty much what I thought...I just didn’t want to assume as I’ve never set foot in that country. Ahhhhh, why didn’t I go in 2009-10 when I spent at least 6 months up in CM? Was on a budget, but I could have fit in 2 weeks there easy. Now, I’m a decade older and 100 pounds fatter, I can’t even get the hansum man discount anymore! 
 

Thanks Larry, it looks like for nightlife purposes, AC is the spot. I will still visit the big city when I land, but not for very long

img041.jpghaven't been in Angeles/Manila since 1994,was in both places many times in the 80s,loved a Ermita in the 80s till the Manila Mayor General Ver?? closed the bars in Ermita

thought Ermita was far better than Angeles,to many yank military young buggers there,still got a passout from their bar, that all girls had to carry back in those days

posted some pics on Peter Storms Cambodia forum,can't find the bastards at the moment be in the shed somewhere.

been thinking I would go back in Angeles in a touring badboys week or so.

Those days are still with us. Just last night saw a lady hawking instant Polaroid photos at one of the Pattaya bars. Surprised they can still make a living doing that in the age of camera phones.

Everybody thought Pinatubo going off was the end of Angeles actually it was the restart of it I'm sure you're familiar with Margarita station that place was sold after Pinatubo to the owner who still owns it today for 10,000 US Dollars the building and the land. What an investment that turned out to be but keeping in mind when he bought it it was a building absolutely full of Ash

I did just one trip to Manila and had a good time overall but it was a very scary place then.

First night, Hotel to EDSA by taxi.

Return trip hours later and the first thing the girl I had b/fined did was to lock the rear doors in the taxi accompanied with the words " very dangerous at night!"

I am not sure if locking the doors made a lot of difference but I was staying in a large casino resort hotel and never left it during the day taking a taxi in the evening going straight to EDSA etc.

AC could be a bit like the wild west at times but nothing on Manila.

One of Secrets Hotel regular customers got held up at gunpoint one night on his way back to the Pacific Breeze and bundled into a van. Then driven round to ATM machines until they would not cough up any more cash then driven towards Manila and dumped on the side of the road relatively okay. AC is the only place in the world where I have seen guards sitting outside of business premises holding shotguns!

Manila in it's heyday was brilliant, probably better than anywhere I have been. Mayor Alfredo Lim really did screw it up but I am glad I had the privilege of being a punter back there in the late 80's....

Jambo,

I never had any trouble in either Manila or Angeles,but I was very careful at night,did back in the early 80s I did walk around Ermita pissed,

did notice a few things about Manila that was very different than back home,

armed guards all over the place espescially outside banks ,and the BGs was the the first "working" girls I had been with that got naturally got "wet" and horny.and they would most times start a session in the mornings,bloody hell they was tight,not like some of the buckets I been banging back home,

first went there in 1980 the again 81/82/83 and twice in 84 after I found M.H.Del Pilar street.

in 1985 I went over 7 times,xmas 85 -xmas86 shit I had some great times both in Manila and Angeles and down Laguana Provence.

thous times will never be repeated even I thou I tried hard in Pattaya but it was NOT PI.

Larry,

I remember Margarita station when it was Margaritaville but Jimmy Buffett? took them to court over copyright issues.

I have not been back to PI/Angeles since 1994 I found Pattaya and fell in love with Thailand.

middle 80s Angeles was "dive central" of S.E.A.it was full of young yankee military blokes and Clap was the order of the day.

know a barrister in Sydney who went over 5 times 10-20 nights each trip and come home with the clap each time ,he said,"nothing to it Ray ,get Jab in the arse and gone it a few days".

mad bastard he was a tearaway on a trip,the girls loved him,he had them laughing the minute we walked in the bar.

Eric,

PI where even ugly blokes could get laid,only need money

I was taught by "Rhona" the bar queen of the old Aussie bar "Ray business is business" meaning she was banging me only for the $ and none of this "lub you" bullshit she was a absolute Pro.

she only did safe sex before it was called safe sex condom always,funny she would allow me to CIM after I had been tested for STDs ,she excepted the doctors report from the doctor here in Australia.i trusted her above all else in Manila she was just so great.even now after 33years I would have her in a minute."Laymond I so horny" to hear that one more time,

I would go to me grave with a smile on me dial.

had her every trip from 84 to xmas 87 she married a Swiss bloke and moved to Singapore I believe.

Relax, I was attempting to be funny Ray. Correction, they only got wet when in the pool OR when I had visited the ATM

Actually I had many freebies in Thailand, and I’m sure it’s easier in PI from what I’ve heard. Not worth the trouble though, IMO. When she gets attached, or you both do(I’m a butterfly, but still have a soul), it ends up more expensive in the long run

But nothing wrong with getting it for free, kudos to the lads that can still pull that off. I doubt if I can anymore or even if I’d want to. TBH, a stunner in her 20’s who is not getting some form of compensation, whether it’s cash or designer handbags, is probably wasting her time nowadays. That’s reality

I have been thinking once I get a clearance to fly from the quacks I could do a trip to LOS and a side trip to either PI or Cambodia.

would only do a sidetrip in company.either a wingman or group.

so yes if we got to LOS same time we could get to Manila[bring ya fortune] Manila is no longer a budget place I hear,or cheaper trip to Angeles
