For Avel because 1) he is a MAJOR foodie (reader alert! this is a euphemism!), 2) his most viewed/commented blogposts are those featuring restos and easy-on-the-wallet but tastebuds-tittilating and tummy-busting dishes, 3) he needs this book so he can recommend new dishes to resto-owners to refurbish their tired menus and 4) so that he can maintain his Winnie-the-pooh cuddly huggable "disfigure." Hehehe For Rammyboi because 1) he's a techie (not teachy huh!), 2) speaks more than 2 languages, 3) knows that lengua estofada is not a foreign language, and 4) can refer his clueless online friends to this book if they don't understand Nihongo and can only communicate text-style (sms).
For Sheng because 1) she's a wifey and momma, 2) she can cook up a storm for a multitude (parang yung audience sa Sermon on the Mount) and needs to do that on a shoe-string budget 3) global financial crisis, 4) all their savings go to feathering their new nest at La Cassandra.
For shutter-happy Kyawster, Leonard & Tanchi because 1) they shoot people, places, and events, 2) in the pictures' captions they are always described as "not in the picture," 3) their shots are breathtakingly enhanced with Photoshop and 4) so that they will take more pictures of me during our bloggers group meet-ups (hint, hint!)For Ariel because 1) of his ferris wheel-nausea-inducing mood-swings/seesaws due to work and personal/love/sex-life stresses, 2) he can distribute it to all of his friends (online and off-) so they can understand him, 3) because Norman Vincent Peale's How to win friends and influence people is already obsolete, and 4) so he could read it and understand HIMSELF better.For Jeanny because 1) she's a new blogger-friend and it's her birthday, 2) she's a couch potato watching an entire season (12-13 hours!) of a TV series in one sitting, 3) she has an online contest whose winner gets a Moleskine notebook on Feb. 15
