Pusong Bato is one of the most famous songs that is sung in bars in the Philippines. It is always better to practice it first before attempting to sing it at the videoke bar! Videoke
This is where all the tourists go to sing their favorite songs

My Impressions of the Philippines
During my seven month stay in the Philippines from late May 2012 until early December 2012 I was able to accomplish much of what I set out do to. There was simply not enough time and money to do everything that I wanted to do.
I stayed in Manila for a little over 2 months and in the Cagayan valley for almost 5 months on 2 separate occasions.
I wanted to see more of Ilocos Norte and the beaches on the northern coast. I wanted to see Santa Ana and the small islands off the northern coast.
I will plan ahead so that during my next trip to the Philippines I will take ample time to visit all the places that I want to see. I am looking forward to returning to the land that I consider my second home……The Philippines!
