Food, flowers, and Open Yale Courses

Standard

I have updated my header picture, yay!!! It is from Bellagio Casino, very beautiful. I did not gamble though, even though I was very tempted ^.^ I did eat good food at Pho so 8 on Eatern Avenue in Vegas, highly recommend this place. I forgot to take picture, but here is the actual dish I ate (copy from Yelp). It is called Bun Bo Hue:

My friend ordered Pho and he said it was very good:

Here are more pictures from Bellagio:

I did record a video of water show in front of Bellagio and uploaded in this post originally, but I realized the video quality was bad and it contained some bad languages :D. Therefore, I decided to embed a more quality video from another Youtuber. Hope you’ll like it as much as I do:

Because I am happy, I have a small gift to you this weekend. It is the Open Yale Courses of Economics. The lectures are difficult to follow, especially for amateur like me. But I think if you want to learn how to trade, you need to learn from the experts. Robert Shiller is my favorite professor. He did mention in one of his lectures that rich people donate more money to charity. If you have money, you will be able to help more people. One of my dreams is to teach English to children in rural area in West Vietnam where my dad was born. Once I am financially independent, I will come back there to do it.

Open Yale Course covers not only Economics but also other majors. So if you do not like economics and you want to learn more about other subjects, you can go back to its home page here.

I read this quote from Spirit Magazine of Southwest Airlines and really like it, so I want to share with you: “Many efforts turn out to be dead end, but every once in a while, you go down an alley and it opens up into this huge, broad avenue.” (from Amazon CEO regarding to how he came up with the idea of Amazon). This quote is from a book of Peter Sims, Little Bets: How Breakthrough Ideas emerge from Small Discoveries. I think it is an interesting book.

What are your favorite books? What are you reading now?
