There were some differences though between karaoke places in Indonesia and in United States
The first thing that obvious of course the song lists.
I mean, duh....of course they don't have any Indonesian song here.
Although they do have a Malay category and some singers from Indonesia, the songs are English songs.
I'm pretty impressed that Dewa 19, Inka Christy, Broery Marantika, and some other singers made it to the list.
Of course Anggun and Agnes are there as well.
Another difference is that the Chinese/Mandarin songs that they have don't have any PinYin text here.
So, sadly I have to say good by to Andy Lau, F4, and my other must have singer when doing karaoke in Indonesia.
The other thing that I notice is the food and beverage price here is more reasonable than in Indonesia's karaoke places
I remember that me and my friends used to have sneaked in some water bottles and snacks in our bags so we didn't have to buy any food or drink when we were karaoke-ing.
Anyway, despite all those differences, both places have a lot of things in common.
Different rates at different times (or Happy Hours as they call it), musical instruments that they provided, microphone covers for hygiene purpose, the lighting, etc.
All of which that lead us to one word: FUN....
Do you karaoke?
