#MayMoms Day 12: One of the most formidable #MovieMoms is Scarlet Witch. We just watched Dr Strange. While I think that Wanda‘s grief is way overplayed now - with a whole tv series and now an entire movie devoted to her loss - I still found the entire idea of multiverses fascinating. I hope to watch Michelle Yeo‘s but not shown here in the UAE yet.

#MayMoms Day 10: Filipinos need to be #Courageous now as electoral fraud seems to be happening at the moment. Marcos Jr. is running for Presidency and seemingly leading the race. It is not surprising that historical revisionism is now rampant with Martial Law wrongly depicted as an idyllic time of peace and prosperity, something which was also featured in this book.

#Two4Tuesday
📚Way too many books. If I am on a week-long vacation, I would most likely bring 7 to 10 titles.
📚This is a problem because I always bring physical books with me. Even on an overnight trip, it is not uncommon for me to bring around 3 physical books so that I can read whatever suits my mood at any given moment. 🤷🏽‍♀️

vivastory I recently picked up a Le Guin short story collection in the SF masterworks series. I loved Tuf Voyaging. I have a very vivid memory of reading it right when news started to pour in of cities going into lockdown due to Covid & it seemed pretty likely we would, too. It helped me escape for awhile. Great haul! 3w
GatheringBooks @vivastory i enjoyed apple tv‘s adaptation of Foundation which made me intrigued enough to get myself a copy of the books! I am still missing a few titles. Have you read it? 3w

This Is a Dictatorship | Illustrated by Mikel Casal Equipo Plantel
post image
Pickpick

#MayMoms Day 2: Dictatorship is #Evil whichever way one looks at it. Today, I share this picturebook that serves as a primer on the face of fascism – written in such an engaging manner that can easily be understood by young readers. This post of mine is also the most political - especially since this book published in Spain features Ferdinand Marcos, Filipino tyrant. And now, his son is running for President. Despicable. https://wp.me/pDlzr-okQ
