WISH OF A POOR AND A RICH Rolando D. Lavisto, BSCE 4 Who would have thought that Aladdin would be richer than the king? In the Disney’s film “Aladdin”, the main character was a poor man, and a thief just like Robin Hood, turned into a prince with the help of a Genie.

He wished to be a rich prince because it’s the only way he thought to have the approval of the king. And so it happened. The villain in the film was a sorcerer. When he found out Aladdin’s secret, he stole the magic lamp and wished to be a powerful sorcerer, own a lot of treasures, and own a kingdom. He is already rich but he wished for more.

Own a company? What are these for? If wishes from a shooting star could come true, and a coin thrown into a wishing well could come back a thousand fold, Totoy would have been very rich by now. Totoy, 10 years old, is a “regular” beggar at Hepa Street in Legazpi city. They are eleven in the family, including his grandmother.
