A.A.P.I. Heritage Month: Day 2- Crazy Rich Asians & Spotlight: Indonesia

๐ŸŒดGood Evening Friends!๐ŸŒด

Grab your little passports, fellow Littles, because today we are jetting off to the island nation of Indonesia! With more than 300 different languages and 6 major religions in one country, Indonesia is a melting pot of many cultures. Come learn with me as we travel across this vast archipelago that spans along the equator of the Southeast Pacific.

With the world’s largest Muslim population, this country has a unique variety of cultural influences. But before we dive in, let’s stop and take a look at today’s Asian movie of the day!

Thrust into the spotlight, Rachel must now contend with jealous socialites, quirky relatives and something far, far worse — Nick’s disapproving mother. โœˆ๏ธ
