Thanks so much for those photos of the old Ortigas area. Wow, it really brought me back to my childhood. I used to go to Unimart a lot on weekends with my parents. We'd shop in the supermarket, go browsing in Virramall, and watch movies in the theater. Afterwards, we'd eat at Shakey's or McDo. Those were carefree days!

The thing I liked is the captions and descriptions you added to go with the photos of your brother (may he R.I.P). They gave the context of the photos, and allowed me to visualize and remember the way Ortigas and Greenhills were back then (my god, over 30 years ago!).

Ang galing, a trip down memory lane.

Please, everyone, post more photos of 60s to even 90s Manila life, with captions.
