In comparison to Hardi's deprived childhood I was satisfied with everything I was given by my parents... the only thing I remember is that I was throwing sausages under the fridge when I wasn't hungry, but they made me eat it :P and porridges maybe, but I'm catching it up now :wink:

I disliked also milk. I'm still not fond of it. I only like sour milk.

My brother did hide sausage sandwiches behind of heating radiator.. he liked to eat candies and when there wasn't any, then sugar.

Japanese cuisine is mainly made of seafood. Almost everything has seafood in it. That's why I find it very strange to see a person who doesn't like seafood is Japanese. He is, in fact, the first Japanese I've come across who doesn't like seafood.

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:

I didn't like black budding because of lard. Usually there was always pieces of lard inside. I still don't like lard. Fortunately lately they don't but so much lard into sausage. I think I did read somewhere that Sausage makers are in unfortunate because Estonians prefer meat products that doesn't contain much fat.. so they try to export. But I have nothing against of black budding, my mom did it some time when we used to farming.. The paste or dough(I don't know how should to call it) really did look horrifying pink before boiling :lol: I only don't like black budding sausage, because it's usually made of natural gut. Gut is hard to chew. Even worse is to prepare them.. Once we also did try to do sausage but failed since guts weren't good. It's not like that I don't want it eat because it's gut, Really I'm lazy to chew.

Radish I have ate, red one and white one. I can't say I liked. It was bitter.
