Episode 12: Manuod Tayo (Let’s Watch)

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


  • 1st day of preschool for my bunso.
  • Shout out to Ikea. Transformed an old bedroom to a “Dad Cave”. This is the first podcast recording in the new configuration. I’m closer to the window that is facing a busy street so I hope the background noise isn’t too bad or worse.
  • Rebranding my Youtube channel to “Dad Cave” maybe. Getting help from my cousinĀ @dejaveci. If he has some time, he’s gonna hook me up with a logo.

In this episode, I will be sharing my memories of watching movies. The movie theaters in the Philippines are slightly different than it is in the US. They are grouped together just like in the US but there is a ticket booth for each theater. For instance, let’s say the mall has 10 theaters showing different movies, each one has a ticket booth for that theater. You can purchase a ticket for that movie and you have access to that movie for the entire day. You can enter at anytime, even in the middle of the movie.

I also want to share the first movie I watched in the US and my memories of going to the movies in the Philippines. I’d like to compare both experiences. I hope you enjoy the episode. Don’t forget to subscribe and rate me on iTunes. Or just say hello on social media. Thanks for listening.
