A Fun Pinoy Summer Song

Where have you been this summer?  What have you been listening to while being in the full summer holiday mode?

Last night I was introduced to an exquisite song by Yoyoy Villame entitled Philippine Geography.  I never knew that such a song exists!  Thanks to Hardin Sarmiento, a co-worker who joyfully and perfectly sang this song during the exuberant and high-spirited videoke sessions in our summer outing in Infanta, Quezon.

It was a blast of fun and cheer hearing this song.  I promised myself that I would try to immortalize the song by putting it on this blog.  It’s like tickling your funny bones, you can’t help but laugh while listening to it.  The beat perfectly fits a Pinoy summer feeling.  Here’s how the fun song goes…
