Singing has become a central part of pop culture in the Philippines. Most Pinoys are great singers and I have to say that this archipelago has the most singers and karaoke machines per capita. Almost every Philippine home has a karaoke machine or a Magic Sing microphone – a digital mic that turns your television into a karaoke machine. Karaoke is a family-friendly activity throughout the Philippines. Perhaps the best way to enjoy this tradition is in a Philippine home, but if you have guests from another country, you will never run out of places to sing the night away around Manila.
In welcoming Matt, Joe and Katherine, our partners in Benefitfocus from South Carolina, the whole configuration Team agreed to celebrate their first weekend here in the Philippines for a Karaoke Night to belt out some songs from our favorite singers. so let’s get started and let’s get loud!
Everyone was given a chance to have their own shining moment. All of us were surprised that our partners from South Carolina are great singers too! 🙂
Music Bank is a korean-owned KTV, bar & restaurant which caters to family, & groups. They have huge rooms with state of the art sound system & wide selection of songs which everyone can sing along to. There’s also a wide variety of food in the menu you can order with several choices of drinks. Service was prompt & friendly. We were 12 in our group but we were all seated comfortably like in a cozy music room. This is a great place for get-together,reunions & just hanging out for some fun. They offer packages for groups depending on the number but you have to make reservations especially on busy days.
The food was acceptable (nothing special) but really the main point in booking here is not the food but the KTV. The quantity was just about right for 15 people (per set). The 30 drinks per set was perfect for our planned drinking (beer!). The place is clean. They even provide a mic cap (sort of like a shower cap for microphones) for their customers to use.
Overall a good experience and a successful event. Music Bank is definitely value-for-money. Management even gave us free fruit platters as a bonus! We would definitely celebrate more events here in the future.
