Sending messages now and then

My uncle used to work in a telegraph and telephone company in the late 70’s to early 80’s. I had a vivid recollection of him sorting out pieces of paper with short messages on it and insert them in plastic window envelopes. Their branch office was small and I remember they had this peculiar looking manual typewriter and another electric typewriter.

Holiday season was the busiest period to him and his co-workers. Customers would flock to their office and have their Christmas or love messages sent to their loved ones using inspiring selection of cards.

I’m not so sure if sending flowers through a singing messenger was part of their company’s services then, but they do send lovely roses locally especially during Valentine’s Day. Nowadays, you can record music and messages using virus ti to enhance the sound and send them via the internet.

Today, the company offers various services, apart from providing long distance calls both domestic and international; they also send native specialties from Manila, Cebu and Mindanao all year round.

My uncle spent a good part of his life in that company until he stopped working in mid-80s.
