The Manila Theme Song (Filipino Vibe)

Post by mguy » November 18th, 2013, 4:25 pm

Walking around Manila you are bound to hear this song. When I first heard this, I thought Manila was stuck in the 90s. But then I kept on hearing it jeepneys, mall kiosks, hospitals, and with friends. Radio loves it for a reason. At first I didn't pay attention but then I started realizing the song has a sort of connection to Filipinos. It shows the vibe. I think it exemplifies the vibe (which I talk about in Colombia). I thought I share this as if you can connect to the song then you might connect with the vibe.
"So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it."

Filipinos/as love oldies, cheesy pop songs they can sing along and they diligently follow tastes that are at least one decade behind ours (US/UK).
