High Tea with Ning (9)

with this super lovely Taiwanese friend of mine – Ning Sung Delgado @nsdelgado who is the nicest and sweetest :-)  She’s ever so reliable I always ask her for advice, ask her to buy me things ( haha) and to do things for me. :-)  I also ask her for resto recommendations from all over the world especially Taiwan where she is a native.   She moved to the Philippines when she got married to Zaki. She worked in investor relations in Beijing and Shanghai advising US listed companies. For 2 years she took up baking and patisserie and trained at the French laundry in Napa Valley and also at Ron Ben Israel cakes in New York. So definitely she’s very very sweet and hoping I can taste her baking one day and she will serve high tea for me :-)  #h2hpeople #H2HChefsHigh Tea with Ning (2) High Tea with Ning (3)High Tea with Ning (7)High Tea with Ning (6) High Tea with Ning (5)High Tea with Ning (4) High Tea with Ning (1)  For the Milo loving people out there – Milo macaron at Cafe Macaron at @fairmontmakatihotel my second favorite after the Quezo de bola.
