Student Canteen

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

A lot of noontime shows have come and gone. Wowowee and Eat Bulaga are the current noontime shows but before them, there was a variety of shows. Some of those I remember are Lunch Date, Kalatog Pinggan, Chibugan Na, Magandang Tanghali and some weekend noontime shows like Sa Linggo Napo Sila. One of those I vaguely remember but was able to watch a few episodes was Student Canteen. I thank that's where I remember Eddie Ilarde and Chiqui Hollman and an American looking guy by the name of Bobby Ledesma. (I always wondered why he was hosting a Philippine show). The show had those games where contestants listen to a question and line up behind the correct answer until one contestant remains.

Recently, I passed this eatery near NCBA along Aurora Blvd. I guess this is a tribute to the defunct show.... or perhaps just a canteen who wants to capitalize on the branding of any legacy the show may have made.
