I got some feedback from people, thank you.

  • Jeff from JB Tech Enterprise called me up. I’ve know for close to 20 years. He didn’t realize how I met my brother.
  • Mario (@mariordev) suggested to add English to the title so that people won’t assume the podcast is not in English. He’s another good friend of mine. We do a podcast together, codehopsRADIO.
  • Ernest, who I used to work with, texted me and congratulated me on the new podcast. Him and his wife want to visit the Philippines the next time we go. No problem, sir. I’ll let you know.

Thanks for the love and feedback. Please keep them coming.

Tagalog Word in this episode

Kabisadong ring. Kabisadong or kabisado means “used to” or familiar. Ring means the basketball rim. It’s not really tagalog but it describes the shape of the rim, circle, which is the same shape of a ring. I chose this word because there’s part of the podcast where I describe the conditions of the rims there. They are wobbly, worn, unstable, bouncy. So if you’re familiar with the rim, you can basically throw up a brick but because you know the rim, more than likely it’ll bounce in.
