Default No karoake in manila

They have banned karaoke in Manila because of students being home schooled right now. I wonder if the rest of the Philippines will follow this rule of law?

Lets hope so.

I hate karaoke.

Isn't karaoke the Japanese word for tone deaf?

Unfor4tunately it is only a daytime ban.

There is a nice restaurant walking distance from my place, I have been there a few times but they now allow local teenagers to just use the karaoke machine. Often 8 to 10 kids, not buying anything, just playing pool and using the machine, at maximum volume. They appear to know the staff well, perhaps relations?

I have stopped going there and told them why but I still see, and hear, the kids when I go past.

Personally I am glad to hear this news! I can completely understand that people are isolated and under some form of quarantine during this pandemic and are just trying to pass the hours of boredom...but the students need a little consideration to focus on their necessary studies while being forcibly home schooled due to government regulations and restrictions in a variety of locations in neighborhoods throughout the country. It is already extremely difficult for children to be thrust into this unorthodox teaching environment that they are not accustomed to. Couple this with the fact that these students are trying to learn on computers connected by WiFi in a country that has some of the WORST internet signals imaginable! People need to remember...they are NOT the only ones isolated...EVERYONE is in the same boat...and we should all think about those around us and not just ourselves!

Add to this, the fact that many of these people did not have and could not afford to buy a computer for their child students at a time when the economy is shut down and many of them are not working! (Talk about kicking someone when they are down...)

Prior to the pandemic, I have many times been extremely aggravated and frustrated with out-of-tune karaoke crooners at all hours of the night...to the point that I could NOT sleep some nights from all the noise! And typically they crank up their cheap poor quality speakers SO LOUD that you can't even recognize the song they are trying to sing because of all the excessive distortion, electronic feedback and window rattling...

It always amazed me that many Filipino's get really "embarrassed" or "shy" so easily with a lot of things, (like speaking English...they are always referring to getting a "Nose Bleed" when they feel uncomfortable trying to say something in English), but it does not seem to bother them at all that 90% of them just cannot sing or carry a tune but they are not embarrassed at all to screech at the top of their lungs so the whole world can hear that they cannot sing...or posting their terrible singing and lack of talent on Facebook with Live Videos!

So restricting the use of Karaoke definitely needs to be addressed...in my humble opinion...and I am glad to hear that at least some places are addressing the issue!

Let me go on official record that I am NOT against karaoke, (to each, his own)...I just think there is a time and a place to do it when the general public or neighbors can hear it. 2am at 500 decibels is not the right time to wake me up from my much needed beauty sleep... Hahaha...

hey Manitoba,

My brother's hound dog loves to sing. I will bring him there in front of your place and let him sing some Karoake for you. He really stays on tune with the song. hahahahha

He probably would sound better then some of the karaoke singers.

In many ways I wish that they would have delayed schooling because, what a burden on the parents... not only do they have to work but also teach their kids during the daytime so also stress involved.

This ban for sure is mainly during the week days and the major cities. I traveled to the PBI several years ago and after shopping we were hungry and stopped for a Shakey's Pizza only to be told I can't have a beer with my Pizza "WHAT" and it was because school teens were inside eating and that's when I also have to say "WHAT" they have money for Shakey's? What ever happened to sack lunches, so tougher rules mainly in the city.

Serving hot lunches in the school would be better and cheaper and keep the kids in school and out of streets plus hold down all the trike and jeep traffic... Oh but that makes too much sense.

Those roosters you are talking about drove me nuts when I lived there in Davao city area. This guy behind my 1 story apartment building had about 30 chickens and I don't know how many roosters. They never shut up. The stupid roosters would crow all day long. They had no ideal they were only suppose to crow in the early morning. hahahahaha I was raised on a farm, so I know our roosters only crowed in the morning time.

Roosters we rarely hear,,,,,, well I at times do at 4:30 in the morning but distantly,,,,, as in not a problem. The Karaoke here is Saturday or Sunday, middle of the day and again distant from the fisher mans village and I agree most can't sing but many can, not heard any locals yet ready for Philippines got talent though some have won Americas got talent and I'm sure they're not from this neck of the woods.

Regardless we are lucky as we have to strain our ears to hear the goings on with Karaoke, roosters and nary a dog barking.

Cheers, Steve.
