About Me | Contact
Greetings dear readers of A-Not-So-Popular Kid,
After reaching my page views milestone, I decided to write an about me page, so you'll know the man behind the posts. I know some of you won't care, but I'm writing it anyway for those who do. Also, I know that eventually you'll be curious enough to click on the"About | Contact" link on top of this blog, so here it is!
Something about the man behind the blog
I am presently working in an advisory arm of a local audit firm. Surprisingly enough, you'll notice that I am far from being a food expert or food critic. All I have, in connection with food, is my deep affection and appreciation of it. Hence, when I write, I just say my opinion or what I felt about the food I eat - nothing more (or sometimes there is when I practice playing with words, or when I feel a little poetic).
Aside from this blog, I also launched my travel blog named Wander Kid Travels where I am housing my travel experiences, this is due to the reason of keeping this blog primarily focused on food. I have been blogging for 7 years now, and this particular blog is happily running for 5 years now.
What I generally find delicious are food with balanced and harmonious flavors. These are the kinds of dishes that I can usually finish from start to end. Some exceptions are those dishes that have sharply potent taste but come in a sufficiently measured portion (just enough before I reach my satiation threshold).
My top 3 favorite cuisines are Japanese, Italian and Filipino.

My initial purpose for blogging is to actually open myself up with other people, as well as to further improve my communication skills via writing. This is aside from the fact that I can preserve memories through my posts, which I can conveniently re-visit in the future. Even up to now, blogging for me still has that purpose. However, it now also serves another purpose of sharing my food exploration experiences and love for food in general. I just love telling stories in my blog posts!
Why "A Not-So-Popular Kid"?
I started blogging in 2010 (in Posterous, which just closed down in 2012), and I still consider myself as a kid back then. Since I saw myself as a "commoner" or in other words, "unpopular", I decided to highlight that one up. Yes, I know this blog title has no connection with food. This is because I started this blog as a personal one to serve as a journal that will preserve good memories. Eventually, I discovered my love for food, so slowly my blog evolved into a personal-food blog.

About A Not-So-Popular Kid
A Not-So-Popular Kid is a blog revolving around food and stories. It mainly features the blogger's own reviews and opinions regarding the food places and restaurants explored. In addition, it is created to guide foodies out there in their future food explorations, and to make non-foodies appreciate dishes of various cuisines.
Note: I (or most often, my family) am the one paying for the food I order, unless expressly stated otherwise. You can identify them by finding the words "got invited to" or anything likewise in the introductory paragraph. The ones labeled "sponsored" indicate that the post is, well, sponsored. Also, I do not provide star ratings for which I am invited.
I'll keep on updating this page, but for now, that's all I can say. Don't forget to subscribe through email and like the Facebook Page!
