Get To Know The Foodie!
Hi there! I’m Mickie, a Cebuano 20-something who enjoys absolutely everything about FOOD. While I have been a passionate eater all my life, it was only in February 2011 when I first held a knife and a frying pan, and whipped out the first dish I ever made on my own. I have always been afraid of accidentally cutting myself with the knife or getting burned by hot oil jumping from the pan. So now that I am into cooking it literally is a 360 degree change from what I used to be. Truth be told, it was a Masterclass episode of Junior Masterchef Australia that inspired me to start cooking. Heck, if those little kids can, then it shouldn’t be too hard. Well, I thought wrong but that hasn’t stopped me from cooking ever since.
Cooking my own meals has helped me become more conscious of my diet too. Having a mother who spends most of her time at the office, my siblings and I were exposed to the fast food culture early in life. We became accustomed to ordering in food from outside or dining out all the time instead of enjoying healthy, home-cooked meals. Now, I make it a point to spend time in the kitchen everyday to prepare my own baon to take to work so that I don’t get tempted to order in. While I indulge in the occasional cupcake to satisfy my sweet tooth, I try to stick with chicken, fish and beef in most of my dishes. I also try to incorporate vegetables and fruits in an effort to eat healthy.
While I am still very much a newbie in the kitchen, I have been learning a lot about cooking from my own experiences, from reading magazines, and from websites as well. I decided to create this blog as a venue for me to share my dishes, to write about restaurants, food trips, and everything pertaining to food. I also hope that through this blog I will be able to create a community of friends both old and new who share my passion for food. 🙂
Apart from my newly discovered love for cooking, I also enjoy playing with my dogs (I have 9 to be exact!), taking pictures, tending to my photography-related business, dining out and karaoke-ing with my friends and family, dancing, reading books, watching movies and TV series, traveling, surfing the internet, and most of all, listening to my love Michael Jackson’s music. 🙂
I hope that you stick around and enjoy my blog! And when you’re here, do drop me a line by leaving a message on the comment box or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
