And a myriad other colors

Red Box is an upscale karaoke entertainment center franchised from Hong Kong. They have lounges in China and Malaysia, and they have three branches in Metro Manila—one each in Makati City, San Juan and Quezon City. Aside from karaoke, some of their rooms are set up with poker tables and billiard tables! I've never been inside one of those special rooms, but I was just thinking: wouldn't it be difficult to concentrate on your game if someone's singing?

Maybe that's the point.

Get me up there singing and people will throw their money away just to get out of the place.

This thought occurred now in my mind "I would love to see Cezar singing there! " LOL
Don't tell him that I told you but I think he has a gift voice!It's a pity that he is so shy!
I have never tried it, I mean Karaoke but I guess it would be very funny!
Great picture Hilda!
I think you should try ! ;-)

I've been to a similar thing in Cagayan. The place is called Loreto's and there are different rooms each decorated differently. The memorable one for me was the coca-cola room. There are a lot of coca-cola memorabilia all over the place. Its really cool. But I prefer playing billiards rather than singing. My singing quota per night is only 3 or else I'd lose my voice or worse heheheh

I kinda like their logo. It has an optical illusion in it.

What a superb photo, Hilda! Love it! Don't care about karaoke but sure do like the sign!

George said...

I also like the logo and your picture of it. I know karaoke is very popular in China and it looks as if it is popular in Manila as well.

I have a vague memory of several years ago being very drunk and trying to sing/yell at a karaoke bar, and thinking the words on the screen were too fast and making me dizzy.

Btw, the sign does look pretty nice. No more karaoke for me though.

Really cool photo. It does appear to glow 3D. Thanks for sharing your find.

Lois said...

I like the sign too! It's very colorful and quite eye-catching.

Pam said...

I think you took your husband there so you could sing your heart out...:D

I think it would be kind of cool to go to a place like that. I like the logo too, it is cool

marley said...

Very colourful. It has an 80's feel about it!

Like a moth, I feel attracted to the bright, pretty lights. I think I'd find the singing distracting, especially if I was losing.

Don and Krise said...

Cool sign Hilda. One of these days you're going to have to go in there and sing your heart out. Of course we are all going to want to see the video.

Vogon Poet said...

I can't do any of the three things, this is clearly not my place...
But the sign is gorgeous! Nice shot.

About the celebration photo on the dp which you've commented, it's about
first Youth Olympic Games from 14 to 26 August 2010, Singapore will be hosting it the first time! :)
