Do you feel at ease in your modest home and distance yourself from people to prevent a coronavirus pandemic? How do you spend your time alone? Due to the increased social quarantine, all expected events, such as film and music festivals, concerts, parades on the red carpet and even birthday parties organised by your work neighbour’s nephew, have been cancelled or postponed until further notice. The best way to entertain yourself at home is to visit websites for the latest updates on government actions, medical developments, etc., read the books you collected from The Big Bad Wolf or years ago when you still had time to read them, or watch movies and TV shows that you have long stored on your hard drive and that now take up a lot of space. If you say that, you can’t keep yourself busy for long.
You’re lucky, because there are many Filipino movies you can watch for free on YouTube as long as you spend your time (or at least until the virus is eradicated and the streets are free of contagious diseases). Here’s some:
