Ciao =)

Accoglienza di benvenuto! 🙂 I made this blog because I want to be more liberated in food. Sounds funny, but yeah, this is so true! It’s not obvious in my body coz’ I’m slim (kidding). Okay, let’s be serious. For me, Liberated means to have more knowledge and to be attached in food.  I do like sweets too because as my friend told me, I have a sweet personality. (Please bear with my Grammar coz’ I’m not that good in English) Since I love eating, I would like to focus more on delicious and healthy foods. So you guys, you must watch out. I’ll be updating some recipes and some tipid food tips.

So, sit back and Enjoy! 😀
