Chapter I "Brad, Malate"After his last and most difficult exam, the panda went straight to his sweetheart's house. They planned to go out on a date. The panda had no idea where they were going, but always thought Malate would be a good place to go out on a date. He has never been there.
They hailed a cab. "Brad, Malate." - They told the driver.
They alighted near a church and started walking. The couple still don't know where to go. An idea stuck them, "KTV! Tonight will be our videoke night."
The couple started scouring the streets for KTVs bars.
Chapter II "KTV"
There is no shortage of KTV bars in Malate. Left and right there they are with their neon signs. One KTV bar had a sign in its window "Wanted GRO with pleasing personality." Another KTV bar had young ladies dressed in very short skirts, high heels, and sexy tops standing outside its doors.
The couple was getting frustrated, that was not what they expected. The panda and his sweetheart kept on walking. They saw a familiar KTV bar that seems wholesome.
Chapter III "Look Closely"
It was the first time they had been to Music 21. The couple was greeted hospitably. They were guided to their KTV room. The rate was 84 Pesos per person, per hour. It was around 11 eleven p.m., so they told the order taker to inform them when it is already an hour. They sang their hearts away. They ordered beer. They also ordered sisig. They sang more songs, duets, Disney songs, boy band songs, songs of the heart.
Before they knew it, it was already 1:30 a.m. They lost track of the time. They paid the bill and had ice cream for dessert.
They walk a bit to find a cab.
The sexy girls were still waiting outside the other KTV bars. Probably, there were less customers that night because it was a Monday and the start of the holy week.
Lesson learned: Sometimes things are not always what they seem. An innocent KTV bar when looked closely are in reality clubs of lust and desire.
