After doing some google research we found out Tipanan means ‘date between two lovers’ in Tagalog, the second language in the Philipines. And yes this is the place to have your most shitty romantic date - ever. The kitsch tropical interior. The crowd, an odd mixture of locals, Phillipines, old middle-aged weirdos and people who do karaoke way too often. Each song sounds exactly the same ‘cause it’s played on the same cheesy synthesizer. And the barowner, a Phillipinian mama, who really hates everyone for some reason. Or maybe she just hates us. Probably she’s just tired of us squeeling into the mic. Doing your best is not enough. It will make you forget about the cold Belgian weather right away and you'll muil (=french kiss) the night away.
