I’m Ronalyn. On the internet, I go by RLV. Mainly because I’ve gotten paranoid about my employers, co-workers (past, present, & future), and random crazies finding me on the web. Long before Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, & so forth.. I used to blog about my daily adventures for the world to read. I put my personal life out for the public to see and soon realized that it was a bad idea. But hey, I was 18 years old and fresh out of high school. What did I know?
I am trying to break out of that shell though, so bare with me.
For the longest time (and still am), I was a fussy eater. I only ate at chain restaurants, ordered the same entrée every time, and spent all my money on eating out because I never cooked anything. I partially blame my parents—now don’t get me wrong, I love them to death, but they are very picky and I know it has a lot to do with our Filipino culture. Growing up, I had rice with every meal. Nowadays, I eat rice only once a month. I never learned how to cook. My mother always cooked and never asked me or my sister to help. And she pretty much cooked the same dishes every week: Adobo, Sinigang, Kare-kare, Mechado, Pancit/Lumpia, and whatever my dad caught after he went fishing. If you have no idea what these dishes are, learn about them here.
Optimistically in time, I will be able to say I tried everything I never thought I would eat. I’m pushing myself out of my comfort zone because I could be missing out on some really delicious food! It’s not even a “could be” situation.. I probably am! I hope you stay tuned as I discover new cuisines, restaurants, cities, and my most favorite part of any meal: desserts. I have a huge sweet tooth…and chocolate is almost always my remedy.
Feel free to leave me a comment or give a recommendation, whether it be a recipe or a restaurant—I’d love to hear from my readers!
