    Episode 10: Sanggol Games (Baby Games)

    Welcome to the SherwinM Podcast. A podcast about the adventures of being Filipino American. I am your host Sherwin.

    In this episode, I am joined by my cousin Jake. He texted me wondering if I had done an episode about games and music we play with babies. I said no and would like to do one on the condition that he join me since it was his idea. We shared a few games and songs.

    Episode 09: Holy Week

    Welcome to the SherwinM Podcast. A podcast about the adventures of being Filipino American. I am your host Sherwin.

    In this episode, I share our trip to Glendale, at the Alex Theatre, to watch Coco Martin and the Fantastik 4. We had a great time. It was a variety show that included some singing, story telling, and comedy. There were a few things I didn't understand, that Abby had to explain to me.

    Holy Week is a week that leads to Easter. Many schools and businesses close this week. Radio and television programs are halted and replaced by religious themed programming. The days leading to Easter are called.

    Maundy Thursday (Huwebes Santo) Good Friday (Biyernes Santo) Holy Saturday (Sabado de Gloria) Easter Sunday (Linggo ng Pagkabuhay) Bisita Iglesia is practiced on Thursday or Friday where people would visit seven different churches and do the Stations of the Cross.

    On Sabado de Gloria (Holy Saturday), many have picnics and go to the beach. Others will get circumcision or pagtutuli.

    On Easter Sunday, there are processions (parade) called Salubong (welcoming) of Jesus.

    Episode 08: Kain Tayo Part 2 (Let's Eat)

    I originally had a different topic I wanted to talk about but I record it three different times and I was not pleased with how it came out. I finally decided to change the topic and save the other idea for another episode. I'm thinking of inviting someone to join with me, maybe that will help shape my content.

    In this episode I revisit kain tayo from episode Episode 6. This is part 2.

    I take a deeper dive with eating.
