Relax-Mode Binge-Watching Tagalog Movies on Netflix

There are days when I just want to do nothing but read books or binge-watch movies. It’s a way for me to give my mind, body, and soul a breather and relax for free or for minimal cost. Borrowing books from the library is certainly a great opportunity to save on books and movies; however, the Asian movie selection is limited in our local library. Last year, we cut off the cable bill by getting rid of our cable subscription and replaced it with a Netflix subscription to save. I have a special interest in Asian movies because I rarely get to watch them here in movie theaters. Below, you will find a list of Tagalog movies currently available on Netflix. One of the reasons I enjoy Netflix is that I now have access to movies I would not normally do, especially on such a budget-friendly price. It just costs us $9.99/month. And no, this is not a Netflix advertisement nor is it a Netflix sponsored post. As a plus, my kids and I get exposure to different languages: French, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Tagalog, Chinese, among others of interest, to harness our foreign language listening comprehension.

Here are the current Filipino movies on Netflix that I have watched and enjoyed:

The Tagalog movies started showing up over time when I started watching one by searching. It helps knowing what to look for. I certainly am not keeping up with what movies came out so I rely on my home feed. Unfortunately, my feed does not show all the movies/shows available. Each Netflix Home Screen feed is different. If your feed does not currently show Filipino movie selections,

Final Words

Everybody has his or her form of relaxation. For some, getting a massage sounds like a perfect way to relax. I personally don’t enjoy getting massages. My relaxation method is reading books or watching movies. It is important to take care of your body by giving it a breather from strenuous activities, mental or physical. It allows the body to heal and strengthen. Now that I’m exercising 6 days of the 7 days of the week for my Lent challenge, I need the break. The older I get the more rest my body requires. My family’s activities certainly keep me busy on top of my extra fitness activities. There’s a downside to starting a family later in life. While the kids’ body are in its prime and works on minimal sleep, my body in comparison decreases in energy each year I get older. Self-care is very important for a body’s overall well being. Don’t feel guilty for wanting to give yourself a break and indulge in your chosen relaxation method.

Until next time.

Mabuhay!
