This is the Halloween episode of the SherwinM Podcast. It may sound weird but the Philippines does not officially celebrate Halloween.

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...

Welcome to the SherwinM Podcast. A podcast about the adventures of being Filipino American. I am your host Sherwin. June is Pride Month so I decided to discuss LGBT. I'm no expert at this but I did a tiny bit of Googling to help me with the episode. This episode is not meant to support or condemn LGBT. I just wanted to share what I've learned and some stories and experiences. Why is Pride Month in June? What is the meaning of the rainbow symbol? I grew up without having any negative...

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.
