If you are Filipino, and you travel around Asia – people will ask if you can sing. This is understandable because most of the premiere clubs/lounges from Shanghai to Hongkong to Taiwan to Tokyo have Filipino singers.
This is unfortunate for someone like me who can sing on tune most of the time – but who is definitely not able to sing the high notes. Of course – while in Tokyo – my colleagues expected me to sing. In times like this – I have one number that I always sing - “I Will Survive”.
I think my Japanese colleagues now know that not all Filipinos are good singers.
