Hi there.

If you are visiting this blog for the first time, there’s a good chance that you are wondering what I do. Well, essentially I’m a bit of all these:

• IT Manager by profession: I graduated from De La Salle University-Manila with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Information and Communication Technology Management in 2009. I’ve been working in the corporate world as an IT Professional right after school. To know more about my work experiences, check out my LinkedIn profile.

• Foodie by nature: My blog is about my pursuit of a delicious life. It focuses on exceptional dining and travel experiences. I love how each food recipe and each dish served on the table has a different story and background waiting to be told. My job as a blogger, as I see it, is to go out into the world and share gastronomic stories back in this space. Thank you for your presence here. I hope you come hungry and leave full!

Why You Should Follow Rochkirstin.com

Rochkirstin.com came into existence upon the realization and enthusiasm to “edit” my life (Read my first post: Editing My Life) and share my progress along the way. While I was working in Singapore in 2011, this blog had served as a channel to convey my thoughts and “broadcast” updates to friends and family in Manila.

It turned from a personal diary into a food and lifestyle blog when I came back home in the Philippines 1.5 years later. To date, I always try to create awesome content that is either inspiring, useful or both.

You’re reading this for a purpose you may not know at this time—or never will. But certainly, for whatever led you to this site, you can be sure it didn’t happen by random chance.
