my brother is now in our living room singing his heart out to the songs in our videoke. he just loves to sing. it is a known fact the Filipinos love to sing. do you agree with this? here in our neighborhood, everytime there is an occasion like a birthday party, wedding, or what ever special occasion there is, people always rent videoke machines and keep the whole neighborhood awake through the night by singing full volume. is this true in some other parts of the world too?

Yes I agree we love to sing a lot. In any occasion the party is not fun if there's no videoke or sing a long. In our neighborhood it is very common to rent videoke machine during occasions they don't mind others who are sleeping in the middle of the night hearing their voices all over the community.

HAHA yess! I don't know why but we really do! On my birthday I brought a magic sing to our hotel room and my friends wouldn't stop singing until 3am in the morning! Usually, during family gatherings especially in holidays and some reunions that were to be celebrated at home never fail to provide at least a videoke. I guess this is our way of keeping us entertained and all. It has also been quite a habit nowadays. Me and my blockmates go to the mall where they mostly offer videoke rooms where you could rent one for an hour or more. We do that just to chill and unwind sometimes. I find it fun.:)

It is in fact a trend of Filipinos, renting videoke and singing from dusk til dawn. I agree that it's one way of entertainment and makes you even close to people around you. It's a nice feeling singing even fit's not your passion, so i don't see in the near future that videoke will be banned or stopped for that matter.
