About the Author

Hi all! 😁 This is Romi - author and creator of Simply Blissful Living (SBL). I started SBL in 2017 after experiencing severe clinical depression. I needed a place to share my thoughts, feelings, and the things that made me happy. I had just quit my job due to the illness, and wanted to invest my time into something that gave me pleasure. I first started my YouTube channel. I knew that I needed to find a platform to share and I remember going on YouTube many times to see what others were thinking on various subjects. Of course, it wasn't limited to recipes or how-to videos. I remember searching for videos that showed me how other people coped with their depression. Many times, it made me feel better to know that there were others like me and I found myself "watching" their lives to understand mine. It may seem odd, but when you don't know what is going on with you, and the feeling of being "lost" is overwhelming, its easy to see how others are handling similar situations.

After starting my YouTube channel, I made it my journey to share what I was passionate about. Then, I realized that some of the content I wanted to share was too lengthy. My videos needed some additional, supplemental information which is when I decided to start my webpage/blog. 

Fast forward to today, every day, I wake up and work hard to share myself with the world. It may seem like its easier than having a 9-5 job, but most days, I work 10 hours easily. But its what I enjoy. I enjoy sharing myself and my passions with the world. I hope and pray that at least one person out there in this beautiful world finds my content helpful and inspiring. If only one life is touched by me, I will live happily knowing I made a difference. 

I sincerely thank you for stopping by SBL. I hope that I inspire you in one way or another to live life blissfully.

  1. Hi Romi Jiji, I wanted to thank you for your blog and YT videos. They are amazing and so helpful to a girl like me who lost her mom before I could learn everything from her. I found your saina recipe on YT and I had one question: If I wanted to make ahead of time and freeze the saina packets would it be best to freeze before or after steaming? Thank you once again for everything! =).

    1. Hi, you can steam the saina and freeze them for upto 1-2 years. Personal opinion is not to go beyond 1 year as the taste may go off.

  2. Hello Romi!

    Thank you SO much for all your cooking videos! I have to say comparing to what my Mom has taught me, then watching it on your channel is quite different- so I tend to follow your step by step instructions (: From the halwa recipe, aloo matar, saina frying, and your sweets recipe, I love them all! Sometimes Moms don't tend to explain things too well as my Mom says "making tharkari is all the same", which is not always true; and so I look to your videos for simple guidance. I appreciate your prompt response on IG, and sharing the halwa video since I requested it. You are wonderful, and please keep sharing your Fiji/Indian cooking recipes, because I sure will watch it and share it with anyone asking "how I made it". If you ever get a free chance, I would so LOVE to see how you clean, prep, and cook crab (kekra ke surwa). I know I'm asking for a bit difficult task here, but I tend to host a lot, and would love to become an expert at kekra ke sura. I've only made it one other time before. Sometimes I just want to wow my guests or even my Mom lol. Thanks again!

  5. Hello romi. I am so very happy to come across your you tube channel usually i eat these goodies like barfi when I visit Fiji but with Covid my trips were cancelled. I wanted my 6 year old son to experience a bit of Fijj so your recioes have been a huge help in connecting me amd my son to my homeland. Thank you from all the way from Canada!
