The only thing we don’t quite enjoy about the December holidays is the wet weather. We can’t go outdoors as much, so I have to find lots of indoor activities to occupy them. When Tang Music Box invited us over to their brand new karaoke joint, I jumped at the chance for something different to do. Well, er that was not exactly my first response, to be honest. I was glad for a different experience, but apprehensive at the thought of taking my kids to a KTV. I hardly ever go karaoke-ing, and the few times that I went in the distant past, were to dark, dingy, and smoky places which are not in the least appropriate for kids. However, they explained to me that this was a very different concept and that they welcome children.

Snacks aside, they also have an impressive array of drinks. Take your pick from the usual carbonated drinks, Kickapoo, Qoo, Orangina, Ribina, Schweppes, Healthy Thirst quenchers, and root beer in a glass bottle (one of my favourites!)

The adults in our party opted for the hot drinks as it was raining outside. They have a selection of teas and coffee.
This place caters to all sorts of cliental. They host families, groups of friends, corporate events, even hens nights or special events. I heard that many groups start out planning to sing for just a couple of hours, but end up having so much fun that they stay till closing time.
My kids have never been to a KTV and they were rather amused listening to the ‘aunties’ belting out the songs with such passion. While the adults were having a great time singing, the kids had a great time snacking! They have a really wide selection of songs and they update their songs every month so you can get the latest releases here.

A must-try is their California nachos and cheese. The layout of the rooms and the high stools are great for moving around and mingling. When the kids saw that the aunties had a plate of nachos, they all migrated over to their table.
Not only am I won over by their family-friendly concept, but I’m also impressed by their social consciousness. On the 17th of December 2013, they are sponsoring 100 children from low income families under ‘The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund’ to come and experience KTV. I’m sure the kids and their parents will have a rocking good time here!
