Watch: Tune in for Love on Netflix (2019)

Read:  Parachutes by Kelly Yang


Speak enters the world of Gossip Girl in this modern immigrant story from New York Times bestselling author Kelly Yang about two girls navigating wealth, power, friendship, and trauma.

They’re called parachutes: teenagers dropped off to live in private homes and study in the US while their wealthy parents remain in Asia. Claire Wang never thought she’d be one of them, until her parents pluck her from her privileged life in Shanghai and enroll her at a high school in California. Suddenly she finds herself living in a stranger’s house, with no one to tell her what to do for the first time in her life. She soon embraces her newfound freedom, especially when the hottest and most eligible parachute, Jay, asks her out.

Dani De La Cruz, Claire’s new host sister, couldn’t be less thrilled that her mom rented out a room to Claire. An academic and debate-team star, Dani is determined to earn her way into Yale, even if it means competing with privileged kids who are buying their way to the top. When her debate coach starts working with her privately, Dani’s game plan veers unexpectedly off course.

Desperately trying to avoid each other under the same roof, Dani and Claire find themselves on a collision course, intertwining in deeper and more complicated ways, as they grapple with life-altering experiences. Award-winning author Kelly Yang weaves together an unforgettable modern immigrant story about love, trauma, family, corruption, and the power of speaking out.

Once Upon an Eid is a collection of short stories that showcases the most brilliant Muslim voices writing today, all about the most joyful holiday of the year: Eid!

Eid: The short, single-syllable word conjures up a variety of feelings and memories for Muslims. Maybe it’s waking up to the sound of frying samosas or the comfort of bean pie, maybe it’s the pleasure of putting on a new outfit for Eid prayers, or maybe it’s the gift-giving and holiday parties to come that day. Whatever it may be, for those who cherish this day of celebration, the emotional responses may be summed up in another short and sweet word: joy. The anthology will also include a poem, graphic-novel chapter, and spot illustrations.

The full list of Once Upon an Eid contributors include: G. Willow Wilson (Alif the Unseen, Ms. Marvel), Hena Khan (Amina's Voice, Under My Hijab), N. H.

Highlights


♛ FaceTime hangouts + Zoom birthday celebrations (not mine) with friends. I miss them so much, so seeing their faces is a balm to the soul.

♛ Making trays of food at work once a week to help feed and express gratitude for the UC Davis and Sutter hospital doctors and nurses.

♛ I've been utilizing the cloudLibrary app more as my library adds more ebooks and audiobooks onto the catalog, as well as the Kobo Audio subscription which is super convenient since I read ebooks on my Kobo already. Having both ebooks and audiobooks on one device/app has been a godsend. It helped me get a lot more reading done this month.

♛ Though work hours are still reduced, I got one of my days back onto my schedule. It may be a weird thing to be happy about but bills still need to be paid.

♛ With a bit more time on my hands, I've been creating new Adobe Lightroom presets and getting back into freelancing. I didn't realize how much I've missed it.

♛ Washable, reusable cloth mask orders arrived for the family and I so we're more protected and protecting others whilst out.

♛ The garden is thriving and it's been refreshing to be outside tending to it under the sun and beautiful blue skies, and taking breaks in between to soak in the sun. Luckily allergies hasn't been that bothersome so far.

♛ To keep sane with extended stay at home orders, I've been decluttering, reorganizing and redecorating to make my place a sanctuary that I love to come home to or wake up in. I'm a homebody at heart, but this is one way to keep quarantine fatigue at bay for those who are not. Instead of going out in crowded areas and risk spreading/catching COVID-19, I recommend trying to make your home a place you enjoy to be at.

♛ Coworkers are slowly coming back to work and I'm excited to have the whole crew back together again. While it's been nice (and tiring) running the place with just 2 workers at a time and getting all the tips, I've missed my coworkers I'm blessed to call friends.

♛ EDD (unemployment) is giving us additional funds due to the CARES Act, and though it's taxable, it is definitely helpful and something to be grateful for.

♛ I will be participating in the A Song of Wraiths and Ruin blog tour that will take place in June. This will be my first blog tour in five years, y'all.

Lowlights


☽ My Medi-Cal (low/no cost health insurance) expired this month, and when I tried to re-enroll with my decreased salary due to reduced hours, I got denied for some reason??? They tried to get me to choose plans for $300+ a month. In this economy? In the middle of a pandemic? It's been nothing less than frustrating, especially when you get the run around after so many phone calls and emails.

☽ Only having two of us running the place at work this month has put more tasks on our shoulders, which has been more than exhausting. It's weighed on my health and body, the same for my coworkers as well. We need hazard pay for working on the frontlines and certified (pay raise) for all the stations we had to cover after this. As well as access to testing - I mean we're "essential" (see: disposable) afterall.

☽ Shelter in place orders has been extended as expected since we can't seem to put in the effort to slow the spread. And people wonder why we have the highest COVID cases in all of Northern California. πŸ™„

☽ Job rejections and eARC rejections from Edelweiss. You'd think you'd get used to it after many years of the same, but nope, it still stings.

☽ On top of not having luck getting health insurance during a pandemic, I've also not had any luck in contacting EDD with errors that need correcting.

April Purchases


Cloth face masks from Etsy ($4.95) | Since surgical/medical masks are for single-use and would not cut it if we're to use face masks for a period of time, so I searched for washable reusable cloth face masks with filter pockets online and found a few on Etsy. I ordered a 3-pack for $15 for my family and bought coffee filters to insert in the pockets. These masks are an okay fit, but it's made of cotton so it's comfortable, breathable and non-irritating.

Love, Beauty and Planet 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner Bar ($4.99) | This is a repurchase. I've been using shampoo bars in a personal effort to cut back on plastic waste, but with the pandemic thing going on and trying to limit going to the store, shampoo and soap bars will go a long way. Since this brand is cheap and works pretty well for my hair, I bought a few so it should last for a while. The bars works as great as their liquid counterparts.

Dove Gentle Exfoliating body soap bar ($3.47) | Growing up, I used to use bar soaps as body wash until it irritated my eczema. Like with the shampoo bar, I switched to bar soap in efforts to reduce plastic waste (and now to reduce going to the store), and so far it's worked well for my skin. I specifically looked for a soap that is for sensitive skin and so far this bar soap from Dove (like their liquid products) has not irritated my eczema. I bought a 3-pack and since bars last longer than liquid, I'll be set for a while. If you use a bar soap or shampoo that works well and is eczema-friendly, let me know!

nuun Hydration Immunity tablets ($6.99) | These are my go-to for hydration in the summertime, but this time I've invested in the immunity ones as well. They're so easy to take on the go if you're on a time crunch, and you can just grab the little tube and drop a tablet in your reusable water bottle and shake until its dissolved. It's an addition to my immune health regime and just a good immunity booster in general. Vegan and gluten free.

Cera Ve Moisturizing Cream ($13.54) | As the days are getting warmer, it's time to switch up the skincare routine to fit the season. The hotter it is the more we (and our skin) needs more hydration, so I switched to a thicker moisturizer such as Cera Ve. It has hyaluronic acid and 3 ceramides that work to hydrate your skin in the heat. This is also sensitive and eczema-friendly, and keeps your skin nice and smooth for much of the day.

Elf Precise Brow Pencil ($5) | Shade: Cool Brown. I usually use Medium Brown or Deep Brown shades depending on my hair color and the color matching of both were pretty good, but I wanted to try a different color as I don't want my brows to be too dark this summer with my dyed hair. Cooler tones work better if your eyebrow hairs are dark.

Private Lessons by Cynthia Salaysay

Young Adult Contemporary, #OwnVoices, #MeToo
May 12, 2020 from Candlewick Press


In a standout debut for the #MeToo era, a young pianist devotes herself to her art — and to the demanding, charismatic teacher she idolizes.

After seventeen-year-old Claire Alalay’s father's death, only music has helped her channel her grief. Claire likes herself best when she plays his old piano, a welcome escape from the sadness — and her traditional Filipino mother’s prayer groups.
In the hopes of earning a college scholarship, Claire auditions for Paul Avon, a prominent piano teacher, who agrees to take Claire as a pupil. Soon Claire loses herself in Paul’s world and his way of digging into a composition’s emotional core. She practices constantly, foregoing a social life, but no matter how hard she works or how well she plays, it seems impossible to gain Paul’s approval, let alone his affection.

Author Cynthia Salaysay composes a moving, beautifully written portrait of rigorous perfectionism, sexual awakening, and the challenges of self-acceptance. Timely and vital, Private Lessons delves into a complicated student/teacher relationship, as well as class and cultural differences, with honesty and grace.


What's to Like About Private Lessons 


Filipino American MC
★ Set in the Bay Area (San Francisco) πŸŒ‰
★ It is music-centered, as the MC has a passion for piano and takes lessons in hopes of earning a scholarship 🎹
★ Plenty of piano references (i.e. Chopin, Bach, Beethoven, etc) 🎼
★ Addresses heavy themes like sexual abuse, racism, grief, racial/class/cultural differences, microaggressions toward Filipino Americans, how abusers prey on vulnerability, and response to society's treatment of victims vs how they treat abusers; also navigates through heartbreak, the pursuit of perfection, the journey of healing, life lessons, what to do after high school, reclaiming your power and what it means to be a Filipino American
Growth, healing, standing up to abusers/predators and racists, and taking your power back WE ♥ LOVE TO SEE IT
★ Incredibly important and necessary especially in the #MeToo era
★ On a personal level, my being a Filipino American who was born and raised in the Bay Area and taking piano lessons as a kid just like Claire, reading Private Lessons felt a bit nostalgic for that. Unfortunately it never stuck to me like it did for Claire. But no matter what was thrown her way, she has a passion for piano and works hard for a scholarship to her dream school.

"Songs don't really feel like they die. They feel like they just go back where they came from. And when I play, it's like I'm a part of that."

--Cynthia Salaysay, Private Lessons


This next one isn't a favorite quote per se, but it is so true I actually LOL'd because what a damn shame.


"Even though San Francisco is considered diverse, there are still many more white people here than at home."

--Cynthia Salaysay, Private Lessons



"You can't expect love. It's elusive. I bet half the time, when people show you love, you barely even know it. And when you show love, they don't either. It's always masked. People aren't ready for it"

--Cynthia Salaysay, Private Lessons



"I don't have time to be angry; I don't have the energy to waste. A few buildings away, in our room, is a laptop full of my dreams: an acceptance from Stanford, my application to Oberlin, an e-mail from the Bard recruiter. I've already won."

--Cynthia Salaysay, Private Lessons

Watch: Asian Americans: PBS Documentary (2020)


Asian Americans is a five-hour film series that delivers a bold, fresh perspective on a history that matters today, more than ever.

Read: The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar


When Dimple Met Rishi meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this rom com about two teen girls with rival henna businesses.

When Nishat comes out to her parents, they say she can be anyone she wants—as long as she isn’t herself. Because Muslim girls aren’t lesbians. Nishat doesn’t want to hide who she is, but she also doesn’t want to lose her relationship with her family. And her life only gets harder once a childhood friend walks back into her life.

FlΓ‘via is beautiful and charismatic and Nishat falls for her instantly. But when a school competition invites students to create their own businesses, both FlΓ‘via and Nishat choose to do henna, even though FlΓ‘via is appropriating Nishat’s culture. Amidst sabotage and school stress, their lives get more tangled—but Nishat can’t quite get rid of her crush on FlΓ‘via, and realizes there might be more to her than she realized.

Young Adult Fantasy, LGBTQ+
May 5, 2020 from Candlewick Press


A desperate orphan turned pirate and a rebellious imperial daughter find a connection on the high seas in a world divided by colonialism and threaded with magic.

Aboard the pirate ship Dove, Flora the girl takes on the identity of Florian the man to earn the respect and protection of the crew. For Flora, former starving urchin, the brutal life of a pirate is about survival: don’t trust, don’t stick out, and don’t feel. But on this voyage, as the pirates prepare to sell their unsuspecting passengers into slavery, Flora is drawn to the Lady Evelyn Hasegawa, who is en route to a dreaded arranged marriage with her own casket in tow. Flora doesn’t expect to be taken under Evelyn’s wing, and Evelyn doesn’t expect to find such a deep bond with the pirate Florian.

Soon the unlikely pair set in motion a wild escape that will free a captured mermaid (coveted for her blood, which causes men to have visions and lose memories) and involve the mysterious Pirate Supreme, an opportunistic witch, and the all-encompassing Sea itself.

"There are those who are neither a man or woman. Those who were born and called the wrong gender and must reshape their story for those around them. But you. You're something else. You're whatever is safe. Both, maybe, but neither. Or interchangeable. Names are funny things, because they can feel like lies but tell our truths."

--Maggie Tokuda-Hall, The Mermaid, the Witch and the Sea



"Including herself. Or himself. Both were equally true to her. Neither told the whole story."

--Maggie Tokuda-Hall, The Mermaid, the Witch and the Sea



"We don't just read to imagine better lives. We read to be introduced to all kinds of lives. Any kind. Not just for ourselves, but for everyone around us. To understand others better. It's escape, and it's also a way to become more connected to everyone around you. There's power in that, you know. In understanding. It's like magic."

--Maggie Tokuda-Hall, The Mermaid, the Witch and the Sea



"You're home now," Evelyn said.
She did not need to say: You're home because you're with me.
She did not need to say: I will be your home.
She only needed to kiss Flora, to let every part of them entwine. To give herself over to the love they had found together, extricated from circumstance and saved from tragedy.
And that is exactly what they did.
