Jobim’s interest in cooking started when he was about 8 years old and was influenced by his Mom and older sister who also cook. Jobim thinks that cooking is a fun activity. He gets fascinated by how mixing different ingredients can come up with a delicious dish, and this natural curiosity has always been evident—in many restaurants where he and his family would eat, Jobim would request (and is often granted) to visit the kitchen to watch the chefs in action.
Although he especially likes to cook Fish dishes, Lamb Steak, and Seafood Pasta, He also likes to experiment in the kitchen, such as adding different herbs and spices to his dishes—which often turns out good. Aside from cooking, his other hobbies include playing soccer, and reading. He is also a member of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines and has managed to cook fish during camping!
