Looking Forward to Eat, Pray, Love

People have been raving about Eat, Pray, Love and I have been initially turned off by the word "pray" in the title, but there is just sooo much buzz about the book, that I must read it. I asked some people and they say I won't be turned off by the "pray" part.

I usually buy a book, read it, and watch the movie adapted from the book. In this case, I watched the movie's trailer and got even more interested in the book.

Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Official Trailer

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7)

The time has come for the Harry Potter movie series to come to a close.  It's both exciting and sad.  Just like the way we felt when the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released.  The final movie of the same title, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released in two parts. The first part will be shown on November 2010, while the final part will be shown on July 2011.

Here's the official trailer of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (in HD):

Currently Reading: F. Sionil Jose and Jessica Zafra

Beside my pillow are books by two of my favorite Filipino writers: the nosebleed- inducing F. Sionil Jose and the sarcastic Jessica Zafra.

I am reading a compilation of Jose's short stories entitled "Puppy Love and Thirteen Short Stories." The stories are hardly romantic and never cheesy. Rather, they provide a raw and sometimes grim picture of love and the lives of the people who love. The first story, Puppy Love, is my favorite one so far.

Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential

Kitchen Confidential Updated Edition: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly (P.S.)

Given my current obsession with cooking and all things kitchen, I thought it necessary to read the Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. And I wasn't wrong at all.

It is a good read. Definitely very entertaining. Not thought-provoking but eye-opening. A lot of people think being a chef is a fabulous, glamorous job. After all, Giada, Emeril, and Bobby seem to be living the life. But the hardcore truth is... it's a dirty, demanding job that requires talent, really strong back and legs, and the capacity to take everything in stride.
