Magsaysay Drive, Olongapo

If you remember Magsaysay Drive from the 70’s and 80’s, you’ll barely recognize it today. I walked up and down Magsaysay several times, looking for remnants of the old days. The only thing I could find was the entrance to the old Apple Club. That rounded, wide door frame is still there.

  1. Could u possibly post or send a picture of a place that used to be located as u went all the way straight out the gate and crossed shit river went all the way out till u got to the corner on magasaysay dr. right around the corner was a bar thousands of Marine Amtrackers would meet up at night or day and it was called the Malagaya Store (Amtrak Store). Alot of Marines would like to know what is there now. And have you heard of Ships comming back to Subic Bay again? Some of the Ladies that used to woirk there were Adell and Babe. Adell last i heard had all the Amtrak plaques from all units ever in phillipines along with pictures. alot of marines would like to say hello to adelle a very nice and respected women not your typical bar lady. Thankyou and would really appreciate your help, Thanks again.

  2. I vitised Olongapo in 1985 and 1986. Actually I vitised my brother who was a civilian at Subic, but I was off the Base more then I was on it. I hung out in the Oak Barrel Bar on the same side of the street as Cindy’s Plaza. Do you know if the bar is still there? I had a most excellent time in that bar! I loved everything about visiting Olongapo, Baloy Beach, Clark Air Base, Bagio, just to name a few places, and riding the jeepneys and the Victory Liners, etc. I had a girlfriend that was stationed at Subic in the Navy and she lived out in town. Her maid and I had a blast all around town. Something I’ll never forget.

  4. Just curious. You said you hung out at the Oak Barrel, but do not show any pics of it, or from there. Do you have any? Recall a band called the Buckaroos who played there in 80’s.
