    The road from Olongapo to Barrio Baretto

    by mlt_t Written Jun 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    is wide and generally in good condition but sometimes slippery when wet. It winds around the headlands and offers occasional glimpses of stunning beautiful Subic Bay. The only traffic obstacles are the large numbers of jeepney that ply the route. Traffic around Subic town can be heavy at times, particularly on Sunday mornings and in front of Olongapo Market.

    Videoke Machines

    by sherleh Written Oct 29, 2007

    It's 5 pesos per song, you need a lot of 5 peso coins for a singing session until your throat gets sore kinda thing. BUT... there are some songs in the song selection book that is not really a videoke version, but the MTV version-it has vocals! We experienced it twice, and we demanded a refund.

    Unique Suggestions: Ask for a refund, but unfortunately, you won't get your money back. They'll just replace it with another song, depends on how much you have spent.

    Fun Alternatives: There aren't any. Just skip that fave song when you see that one song (same artist) has two or three number codes on the songbook.
