This ebook is for the modern traveler -- the bold, the brave, and those that want to use technology for new insights.

Our quirky Frontier Town (Nakhon Phanom) is the perfect place to use as a base for adventure, research, exploration, chill-out and more:
* The most spectacular river-caves in the world are across the Mekong in Laos
* Ancient stone walls (equal to those in Angkor Wat) can be found meandering the Mekong
* Relics of the Buddha are enshrined in many of the Khmer-style temples throughout the region
* The Rua-Fai-Festival to honour the Naga-spirit is awesome, and the means for making these candle-lit boats remains unchanged for centuries
* Chill-out could be a day (or days) wandering among Mom & Pop restaurants providing deliciously healthy food, in unforgettable ambiance -- and the modest costs will also surprise you
* Beautiful pictures to enhance each subject.

This part of Thailand, Isaan, remains remote.  The formidable power of iPads/eReaders harness the technology, and Frontier Towns provides the information, so that visitors can enjoy unique and unforgettable days in Frontier Towns on the Mekong.

About the author

This is the third continent that Sheba calls home. On the first two continents (America & Europe) she was known as an explorer, a pioneer and successful business woman. She was avant-garde with new technology, traveled to exotic destinations and worked tirelessly for the environment. Those past experiences shaped Sheba so that it was like a natural instinct to write Frontier Towns on the Mekong and at the same time help keep the grassroots green. "The new technology (eReaders) make it logical to share with the world all that I discovered during my pioneering days!" However, the IndoChina Peninsula holds much intrigue for a pioneer and Sheba is already busy with two new books about Burma / Myanmar and a Jungle Outpost near the Golden Triangle.

Thai takeout meets authentic, regional flavors in this collection of 100 recipes for easy, economical, and accessible Thai classics--from the rising star behind the blog She Simmers.

Who can say no to a delicious plate of Pad Thai with Shrimp; a fresh, tangy Green Papaya Salad; golden Fried Spring Rolls; or a rich, savory Pork Toast with Cucumber Relish? Thai food is not only one of the most vibrant, wonderfully varied cuisines in the world, it also happens to be one of the tastiest, and a favorite among American eaters.

The good news is, with the right ingredients and a few basic tools and techniques, authentic Thai food is easily within reach of home cooks. Take it from Leela Punyaratabandhu, a Bangkok native and author of the popular Thai cooking blog She Simmers. In her much-anticipated debut cookbook, Leela shares her favorite recipes for classic Thai fare, including beloved family recipes, popular street food specialties, and iconic dishes from Thai restaurant menus around the world.

All of Leela’s recipes have been tested and tweaked to ensure that even the busiest cook can prepare them at home. With chapters on key ingredients and tools, base recipes, one-plate meals, classic rice accompaniments, and even Thai sweets, Simple Thai Food is a complete primer for anyone who wants to give Thai cooking a try. By the end of the book, you’ll be whipping up tom yam soup and duck red curry that will put your local takeout joint to shame. But perhaps more importantly, you’ll discover an exciting new world of Thai flavors and dishes—including Stir-Fried Chicken with Chile Jam, Leaf-Wrapped Salad Bites, and Crispy Wings with Three-Flavored Sauce—that will open your eyes to all the wonderful possibilities that real Thai cooking has to offer.
Every year, millions of foreigners visit The Philippines. They go to the World War II battlefield of Corregidor, tour the presidential home Malacañang Palace, play golf, lounge on the white sand beaches, and . . .

Some do things that don’t have chapters in the standard tourist phrasebooks and textbooks of the primary native language, Tagalog.

Tagalog is spoken as a first language by millions of Filipinos in and around the nation’s capital of Manila, including Angeles and Subic Bay.
 
In addition, Tagalog is spoken and understood to some extent throughout the rest of the country because it’s the language of school, TV, newspapers and movies.

Tagalog Down & Dirty is your guide to the Tagalog you won’t learn in the other books.

Sex, drugs, alcohol, insults, obscenities, dirty talk, curse words, slurs about your mind, body and sexual equipment, the supernatural, gambling, and “gay language”—which gay men use to hide their meaning from the general population.

Best of all, words for lovers and would-be lovers.

Tagalog Down & Dirty is arranged in chapters according to subject. Next is a chapter including a long list of gay language words. And finally is a list of all the standard Tagalog words arranged in alphabetical order – Tagalog to English – so it’s easy to look up Tagalog words you don’t know.

Come to The Philippines prepared to recognize such basic insults as "Your mother is a ______," "You're _____" and "You have no _____ ."
(Don't say themself yourself, though, unless you're prepared to defend yourself!)

Discover the Tagalog words for parts of your body, at least the most interesting parts, and their functions.

Learn the names of the many monsters and ghosts you must avoid at night.

If you're a man who has sex with other men, discover how Filipino gays classify your sexuality.

Because language is intimately tied to culture, you'll get an inside look at how different Filipinos value are from average Western countries.

Call an American woman "ugly" and you'll probably get a lecture on how men objectify women and/or men should look for beautiful personalities. Call a Filipino woman "ugly" and look out!

Tell an American they have no shame, and they probably won't even know what you're talking about. If you say it to a Filipino, you better run for your life.

Describe an American woman as flirtatious and she'll take it as a compliment. Tell a Filipino woman that and, depending on circumstances, she may take it as an insult to her sexual morality.

Whether you wish to learn more about The Philippines because you're chatting up some sweet young thing online and want to meet her in person, or you wish to check out the bar scene, or to swim and sun bathe at the white sand beaches, explore the jungles or oceans teeming with exotic wildlife, or to backpack in the mountains, or a linguist checking out the phenomenon of gay language, Tagalog Down & Dirty is where to start your adventure.
