Pinoys, especially Cebu-based travel bloggers, are frequently, secretly fond of Karaoke.
Now I have photos to prove that.
Sadly, I didn’t take a video of these awesome bloggers while they were belting out famous old school tunes. (I was quite busy looking up songs for myself.)
So what is it like inside this karaoke spot? Read on.
Unleash Your Inner Pop Star at Quest Hotel Cebu
Though popularly known as a business hotel at the heart of Cebu, Quest Hotel also hosts special events such as debutante celebrations, wedding receptions, students’ gatherings, and birthday bashes. They have fantastic packages for you to choose from.
And one of their most recent and interesting offers is a private Karaoke space.
To pull this off, they convert one of their spacious function rooms into a cozy and rather upscale karaoke hangout.
With this arrangement, you can sing with your friends or colleagues away from a boisterous crowd. It is also ideal for birthday celebrations if the celebrant prefers to delight his or her guests with hours of singing and serenading. Remember KC Concepcion’s 18th birthday? No cotillion, just a night of serenading. (Now you can tell my age.)
No matter what is the occasion, a karaoke night is a great entertainment option for Filipino, Korean and Japanese guests alike. We have a special fondness for karaoke – some say singing is encoded in our genes. There’s no escaping it.
You worry that no one would sing? Trust me, all you need is hubris or a courage potion (in my case, a glass of margarita). Gulp it down in one go and you’re good to go.
I did that. And I swear it helped me loosen up (while it warmed up my vocal cords). Then and there, singing in front of new acquaintances became so easy.
Before I knew it, I was hogging the mic.
Thank you @questhotelcebu for the rather upscale videoke experience. I only have 2 months of highschool glee club, so my thanks as well goes to @islandtrotters’ Issa and @jewelclicks for grabbing the microphone when they can’t bear my singing anymore. cebu.questhotels.com #coolcleancomfy #questhotel #questhotelcebu #hotel #videoke #instatravel #travelbloggers #travel #igtravel #staycation #cebusummerfever #simplepleasures
That might not sound like a perfect way to make a good first impression but the ambiance put everyone at ease that they were more willing to forgive and forget what I did. (Or so I’d like to believe.) At any rate, I was sure we had fun!
Intimate Karaoke Plus Sumptuous Finger Foods Equals Good Times
To complement a terrific karaoke night, order some savory pub grub and delicious drinks from Quest Hotel’s Bar Chow and Pool Bar Beverage menus. If you don’t drink alcohol, you can opt for fresh fruit shakes and juices.
I recommend you try the Quest Platter and share these finger-licking-good fish finger, chicken satay, chili prawn, and veal bratwurst.
They have other great options for sharing such as Sisig, Chicken Quesadilla, mini beef burger, french fries and huge bowls of popcorn.
If you’re planning a Karaoke event for a bigger team, note that they have larger meeting rooms to choose from.
