On the menu this morning 🍌🍞🍴📚

Last night I was finally approved for an ARC of A Whole New World by Liz Braswell. It’s basically Disney’s Aladdin with a twist: what if Jafar was the first one to summon the Genie?

Aladdin – along with A Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and the Lion King – has been my favorite Disney movie since I was a little girl, so I’m super excited to see where this twist leads the story to!

My plants were looking particularly pretty today

Beautiful echeveria (I think)

I forgot what the game was called, but it’s something like “Pass the message.”

The players form a circle, a hand over each other’s arms with their index fingers lift (I only have Lualhati do that in the picture so far, but it should be both hands). The “It” stays in the middle of the circle, and the game will start so far with everyone knowing who the message will come from first– except for the “It”.

The one who first holds the message needs to tap the next person (left or right is fine) on their arm, and they have to make sure they don’t get seen by the “It”. The players will win if they don’t get caught by the “It”, and vice versa. The one who gets caught replaces the person in the middle of the circle.

I hope the picture up there could explain much about Daya and Lualhati’s relationship with each other, especially in the modern time Philippines.
