After work, or if I simply wanted to take a break, I would often find myself in some coffee shop right across the Limketkai Mall, where there was also this cool restaurant called P. Joe's Diner.
So that's me flying an old plane in the dead of night and with the captain nowhere to be found. It may not be a fully functional plane but I'm pretty sure all those gauges and other parts are real, salvaged probably from an old plane. And oh, this was at P. Joe's back in May 2004.
That's the plane I "flew." Well, it's just half an airplane jutting out of the facade of the diner but it's pretty cool, huh? P. Joe's being a diner, they served typical comfort diner food from pancakes to burgers and buffalo wings. I just enjoyed eating there because of the added attraction of that faux aircraft, along with loads of other vintage memorabilia, mostly related to flight. What I don't know, however, is if the place is still open.
What an imposing yet fun facade, don't you think?
Inside the hull. But where are the seat belts?
The restaurant's facade was complete with an air traffic control tower. Inside, there were toy planes that hung from the ceilings.
The diner interiors. Pardon the ugly resolution; these were from a Nokia 6600.
Just one of my wonderful memories of CDO, however mundane. I pray that justice be served and peace and order be upheld at all times. God be with you.
