These were the days when kaunting-tulong-lang-po (a little help, please) girls were making rounds in malls, with their laminated letters and their organic bags filled with dried mangoes. I’m seeing less of them nowadays.

I think they went the same way as the bus conductor scammers (the guys who folded peso bills in one hand like bus conductors and tricked you into buying juice drinks.)

And yes, Philippine Airlines served dried mangoes. Believe it.
