Former movie star
Angeles has always been known for it’s tremendous amount of beautiful women. It’s possibly the best spot for finding your Philippine girlfriend or spouse after local authorities outlawed barfines in Fields Avenue bars. Employees have to work full time these days and can not count on early work releases. They must get tired of work as dancing and bar tending full hours is a harder job than being a spouse of an retired officer in America. Think about it, Angeles is going the same route as Cuba and Saudi Arabia with fake relationship and short time marriages. Funny how Filipinos tend to copycat other countries instead of fixing their problems right away.
Just when venues open, many night workers rush to pick up barbeque chicken and hot dogs from street stalls. It’s cheaper than Jollybee fastfood and Kokomos restuarant next by.
Love or scare: costumes on Fields Avenue
Harvests are coming to an end in October, the month of pumkin heads: Time to buy scary costumes and celebrate Halloween on popular Fields Avenue in Angeles City, Pampanga. Halloween is the most fun time of tourist season apart from Christmas. Everybody is happy, photogenic and scared LOL. Filipina bargirls walking around streets with funny costumes to have fun and search for new customers that are even more scary.
From Executive Club to Golden Nile. Nice meeting with old girlfriends
One of the most famous night clubs on Fields Avenue: Golden Nile club. This neon-lit and glamourous dance hangout features Filipina bargirls who love to drink tequila, champagne or San Miguel Light beer. While it’s mostly designed for feirgners with lots of money in their deep pockets, local Filipino visitors who are well heeled can be spottet from time to time. Met two old girlfriends on the way up to third floor dance floor. We had a lot of fun and laughter about good old time when this club was still places above Blue Nile and called Blue Nile Executive.
Be aware of this scammer girl from One Eyed Wench. She stole money and documents from a customer. Or even better, avoid visiting this bar named One Eyed Wench in Angeles. It’s a place that is highly unattractive without her, anyhow. Don’t let bargirls get too close to you.
Taking detours and exploring streets in not so visible neighborhoods is my favorite past time. It’s so much more interesting to conquer Philippine suburbs by foot instead of just driving by in a speeding Trike Patrol. Plaridel and Pradel 2 are very safe Angeles City suburbs with wide streets and lot’s of interesting industrial estates and farms in between residential areas. Close by Candy Bar and Mount Arayat Street there is this busy repair shop for cars and trucks. One mini van is sitting outside the estate. It’s totally morbid and defunct. It sits their patiently to be repaired. Or maybe the owners put it there in hope that somebody will just steal it. Usually, cars are kept inside a gated area with guards, but this old vehicle stands on public ground
Been working with my new Sigma tele lens with 2.8 aperture for the first time. It provides a great perspective blur and bokeh. Makes my cute Pinay model look ever cuter. What do you think? Should she get into cute modelling?
Checkpoint is graced by fresh fruit stalls and money changers. It's very busy place during rush hour in Balibago.
It was used to be a bumpy ride at Balibago Checkpoint in Angeles City when railroad tracks were still proving to be malicious obstacles on the road between market stall and Friendship jeepney terminal. Today, it’s one of the bussiest places in AC, the Philippines’ most strongly growing metropolitan area. Trike’s, jeepneys, busses and cars full of bar girls and tourists as well as locals who go to work or go home congest this area shortly after sunset for Angeles City’s rush hour traffic. It may be a good idea to avoid this Trike Patrol central from 1700 to 1900 hours local Filipino time.
15 years ago, Angeles was a pretty underdeveloped place. Mount Pinatubo’s eruption and the leaving of US Forces have left the town in peril. Only a cheap charlie entertainment district and a start-up special economic zone were slow forces to drive tourists and businessmen into the city. Today, many new well furnished hotels are available, like the Lewis Grand Hotel (see picture above, Angeles Beach Club, Clarkton and serviced apartment condotels on Balibago’s A. Santos Street where they will be presenting Penthouse suites beside the Swiss Chalet Hotel later this year..
Streetlife on Fields Avenue during afternoon
Sitting inside Kokomos Cafe and chilling out is always fun. Interesting to watch people walking by and preparing for a busy night at work. Lot’s of daytime alcoholics hang out here and they never see what’s going on after sunset. This Fields Avenue can be charming at times when you consider how much vice is happening after sunset.
