for the love of karaoke/videoke

videoke - pod5 in Banilad Towncenter

It’s probably a thing in most of the Filipino households now a days. How everyone would love to grab the microphone and sing their heart out. Wherever you go, every corner, every street sprouts with a videoke machine. It’s sometimes funny or even irritating to a point when you hear offkey singers hehehe…. Why are yuppies willing to spend some hundreds of pesoses just to hang out in videoke resto bars? Like in most gathering, be a fiesta or a birthday party, seem not to be complete without the videoke? I at home would sometime sing but without the microphone. Oh please i don’t want to be a torture to my neighbors! :D



Videoke has been a part of our get together - me and my friends in the office. Whenever we have an ‘event’, Charo and Gug’s apartment was always our ready venue for a night of fun and singing. But some good things never last. People come and go. Change is inevitable. I remember one time we don’t have the magic-sing so we had to settle ourselves playing the videoke cds i brought along. It was fun because afraid of running out of songs to sing. We managed to sing all the songs in the cds available - did not single out any song not to sing! I miss those moments especially when people get drunk! har har har! :P


My weekend was spent watching movies - of course not to miss out the koreanovelas i bought last Wednesday (Endless Love and Only You) plus the english movies Honey starred by Jessica Alba, Bounce (Ben A. & Gwyneth P.) and She’s All That (Freddie P. & Rachelle Leigh C). I was yearning to watch the movie Honey because included in our christmas presentation last year was a song from the soundtrack.
