The 4 Hour Chef Book


I am not a cook, nor do I aspire to be one. I just cook out of necessity. I don't have a love affair with food and I've never been a food enthusiast ever since. I remember when I was small, it would take me hours just to finish my meal. Thankfully, I have outgrown that phase in my life, but I still am not adventurous when it comes to eating or cooking. I also don't like cooking without recipes because I am afraid that if I cook without a recipe at hand, the food I'm preparing would taste bad and no one will eat it!

So after seeing The 4 Hour Chef book on the bookstores, I wonder what it has to offer to a non-cook like me! I am interested to see how Timothy Ferriss will help me through this four hour chef book. It mentioned that the book has recipes and cooking techniques. But the highlight of the book is teaching one to learn new skills quickly. Since cooking is a skill, mastering it quickly can be a plus for me.

Mastering the art of cooking has been a lifelong quest, just maybe with the help of this book, it won't be as elusive anymore.

It Only Hurts When I Pee, RJ Ledesma’s Guide on Bodily Gases, Hair Loss and Pink Parts

Do you like reading books with a different twist? Well here is a book by Three-time best-selling author and 30th National Book Awards finalist RJ Ledesma entitled “It Only Hurts When I Pee, RJ Ledesma’s Guide on Bodily Gases, Hair Loss and Pink Parts.”

No, this is not another story about vampires who sparkle in the midday sun while wearing outrageously pale faces and pouted lips. This is the truth that young boys long to discover, grown ups laugh about, and our grandpas love to revisit. This is the story of every Adam that will never be written in the history of mankind.

Author RJ Ledesma unravels how this and other crazy, perplexing phenomena are taking place, as he launches his fourth book which is distributed by Anvil Publishing. It is a compilation of the ridiculously truthful, self-aware and highly comical chronicles of the less hygienic male species based on curious epic research, thorough investigation and, ahem, first-hand experience.

From the freshly squeezed brain juices of RJ Ledesma, the book and all its 167 pages tackles amusing topics and antics, including classic and epic details in the Pinoy dating and mating scenes, and male entertainment created simply by grimy fingers and a lack of good taste.

Wonder why bad guys often become the object of romance by women who, in RJ’s own word, desire “to increase the country’s current voting population”? Let the entrepreneur, multimedia practitioner, yogi and author of Lies My Yaya Should Have Told Me (2008), I Do or I Die (2009), and Is It Hot In Here Or Is It Me? (2010) tickle your funny bone and usher you into testosterone land with his newest masterpiece guaranteed to make you pee to your heart’s content.

Stock Trading Tips

Being a stay at home mom, sometimes you get restless at home and start to feel useless when it comes to helping the family financially. When the bills come in, I sometimes think about going back to regular work. But then, I remember that I am making a sacrifice for the welfare of the kids. So for the mean time, I have to think of other ways I can earn while I am here at home.

My sister has been telling me about the stock market. She said that I should read about it and learn how to trade stocks. So I did! I checked out some books on stock investment, read some blogs and informative sites like Tim Sykes stocks. It seems like I just need to have a steady online connection which I have, be aware of the news and learn the ropes of stock trading online.

Stock trading is something you can't learn just by reading books. Trying it out and experiencing trading will give you insights as to when you should be buying and selling your stocks. For starters, just buy few stocks and trade it. You can also register on those clubs which give free tips on what to do. Watch programs which educate you on stock trading.

Don't be greedy and be thankful. It is your attitude which will determine if you will make it or not in stock trading.
