While in a discussion with Lira about 50′s Diner in Baguio and Johnny Rockets, I remembered I have an old video of the dancing waitresses of Filling Station along Burgos Street, Makati City.
Here it is below, dug up from the depths of my computer files and uploaded to YouTube:
Filling Station was one of my favorite hangouts during the time I worked at a BPO out of Pacific Star Building. It was within walking distance from the office, was open 24 hours (I worked odd hours), had great comfort food, billiard tables, and was a great place to relax and unwind.
“Hanging out in a coffee place not nearly as much fun as hanging out in a bar.”
- Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother, TV series)
They don’t have anything like this at Starbucks!
The video was taken on December 30, 2007 via a Nokia 6300. Pardon the smudgy lens.
P.S. Yes, kids. That BPO at Pacific Star Building is where I met your mother.
