Videoke at Boracay Tropics Resort Hotel
On our last night in Boracay last summer, we decided to go videoke with the kids. Assuming the Philippines does not change too much in the coming years, having the skill (and the guts!) to sing at a videoke will be an important social tool for the kids so they might as well practice while young.
The rate at Boracay Tropics Resort Hotel was quite expensive at P500 an hour just to use the videoke room. No consummable food and drinks. The room was cozy and sound proof (I guess they didn't want the occupants to disturb or distress the other resort guests) and the bamboo couch could sit 4 people comfortably.
The room was nicely fragrant when we first came in although it seemed that at certain times, the aircon was quite weak. The DVD/karaoke player would also hang at times.
Still, the kids had fun. Manuel and I too. Ali sang her favorite song Diana (yes, that old song from yesteryears) before she sang It's All Coming Back to Me Now (which she learned from her yayas at home). We also discovered as a family how hard it was to sing Ariel's or the Little Mermaid's Part of Your World. The veins in our necks almost burst!
The staff at Boracay Tropics were very nice. We were a bit late for our appointed time but despite that, they gave us some extra minutes beyond one hour. Bitin ata yung mga bata sa pagkanta.
Anyway, the next day, it was time to leave Boracay so it's the end of our 2008 Boracay Series also. All went well with our return flight back home to Manila, together with some amusement at the huge banners in the domestic airport where you had a big picture of GMA and the phrase: "Labanan ang Kahirapan." Hmmm... I wonder if the person who proposed that banner was pro or anti GMA?
So, till the next vacation in 2009. Will be starting my Utah Trip Series sometime soon but in between, will do a few non-related posts first. Stay tuned![By Angelica Viloria | Sunday, August 24, 2008]
