our golden quest

this would be my last post for this year. hope everyone have a very happy new year!

tambrax_hibang and tambrax_meroje's quest for the legendary "Mang Peping's Mami"

It all started last night when i was at home and i heard my phone rang, and saw it was Jerome who's calling. i answered the call and he invited for a drink. And so we met and there we are, after a few couple of drinks we decided to continue our drinking somewhere else and we've decided it to be at our house. So me, Jerome and his two friends went to our house to drink. It was almost 1am when we arrived at our home. We drink and laughed to our hearts content, it was really fun being with your friend and new friends(Jerome intoduced to his two friends, who were really nice). And when we finiched drinking, the other two already left and went home so it was just jerome and me, we decided to eat something. I don't know what came into jerome's mind to eat mami, and said let's go to "Mang Peping's Mami" (ten tenenen!!!), of which we only heard of but never knew where it is. "Mang Peping's Mami" is famous here in Olongapo, almost everyone knew where it is, everyone knew how delicious the noodles there. So there we were infront of our home. Out of jerome's mind again he decided to walk from our house to there. We walked through some alleyways(iskinita sa tagalog), the distance would have been 5 kms. And we walked for like 2 hours searching for the Legendary "Mang Peping's Mami". We were drunk and sleepy till we decided to ask for directions, so we got our directions and went there to our dismay to found out that it was really early that it isn't open yet. It was 5 in the morning! hahaha! We ended up eating on another mami house which the there isn't that good. Jerome ended up eating arroz caldo and i still sticked to mami. Both of us learned a very valuable lesson last night, I mean this morning.

Old Days

share ko lang...


1950's, 60's and 70's !!
Isama ko na din yung mga 30's & 40's

First, some of us survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank
while they carried us. ( sioktong ang inumin)

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, fish from a can ( brand :
ligo ), and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored
lead-based paints, pati na yung laruang kabayu-kabayuhan.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when
we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, no kneepads , sometimes wala ngang
preno yung bisikleta.

As children, we would ride in car with no seat belts or air bags -
hanggang ngayon naman, di ba ? ( jeep )

Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.
( maykaya kayo pare ! )

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle ( minsan
straight from the faucet)

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE
actually died from this. Or contacted hepatitis.

We ate rice with tinunaw na purico ( dahil ubos na ang star margarine),
nutribuns na galing kay macoy and drank softdrinks with sugar in it, but
we weren't overweight kasi nga......


We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were
back when the streetlights came on. Sarap mag patintero, tumbang preso ,
habulan taguan....

No one was able to reach us all day ( di uso ang celfon , walang beepers )
. And we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our trolleys or slides out of scraps and
then ride down the street, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After
running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all,
no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no cell
phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms.......
...WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no

lawsuits from these accidents. The only rubbing we get is from our friends
with the words.....masakit ba ? pero pag galit yung kalaro mo,,,,ang
sasabihin sa iyo.....beh buti nga !

We play in the dirt , wash our hands a little and ate with our
barehands...we were not afraid of getting worms in our stomachs.

We have to live with homemade guns - gawa sa kahoy, tinali ng rubberband ,
sumpit , tirador at kung ano ano pa na puedeng makasakit.....pero walang

made up games with sticks ( syatong )and cans ( tumbang preso )and
although we were told it would happen, wala naman tayong binulag o
napatay....paminsan minsan may nabubukulan.

We r ode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or
rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

Mini basketball teams had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those
who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Walang sumasama ang

Ang magulang ay nandoon lang para tignan kung ayos lang ang bata....hindi
para makialam.

This generation of ours has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem
solvers and managers ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned



And YOU are one of them!


You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up
as kids, before the government regulated our lives for our own good.

and while you are at it, tell it to your kids so they will know how
brave their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't
