Oh, yes..that reminds me.. hehe It's called ampalaya here in the Philippines. I also hated its bitter taste when I was a kiddo, but now, I do eat it as long as it's my mom who cooks it. There are actually alot of dishes one can make out of bitter-melon.Some don't even emphasize its undesirably bitter taste.

Actually, it's a healthy food and is very common here, and a big no-no for kids... :lol:

Me, too. Now I can be able to eat it. My mom cooks it with eggs or stuff it with meat. And it's soooo delicious when she makes it into a vegetarian dish. It's strange how I hated it when I was little, but now I sometimes enjoy the bitter taste. Every time I eat it, I always appreciate the fact that my mom didn't use her power to make me eat it during my childhood, another reason to get used to the taste, methinks. :D

I like seafood Now. But I didn't like to eat seafood in childhood.
I felt the taste was bitter and sour.
And I wasn't able to remove the bones from a fish well.
Sometimes one of pin bones stuck in my throat. I also didn't like it.

I thought that in sea fish isn't that much bones. In fresh-water fish (example bream) seems to be much more. It's a real pain to eat bream, when you're too hungry. U get 10 times berserk and kill everyone around before u could finish it. :lol:
