Do You Like Dakasi Milk Teas?

I seldom drink milk teas, perhaps once a year, or maybe even none in a year sometimes. So it’s hard for me to make a judgement on this Dakasi milk tea.

It was my first here, and I was the only customer. It was a Sunday. The location could be a factor, or may the taste or service, I really don’t know.

Ortigas Center is a central business district situated in Pasig City. It’s probably the second largest maybe in terms of income and land area after Makati City, but please don’t trust me on that, I’m only guessing.

Anyway, here are an old and vintage photos of Ortigas Center when it was only bare and no traffic congestion, one could only dream this traffic free Pasig City.

1989 – The red steel frame in the middle of the photo is Robinson’s Galeria. There are no curving overpass yet. This 12 lane street is EDSA.
