I first met Lisa Ng two years ago at a media dinner for Bangkok Garden. I remember instantly falling in love with her enthusiasm for life. Over the years I’ve discovered we both have a lot in common: love for social media, adventurous travel, good food and are both self described chatterboxes.
I have had the opportunity to get to know Lisa at media events through her work as Editor and Chief for The Hip and Urban Girls Guide (affectionately known as HUG). I was so pleased when she recently let me know she is launching a second blog, This Beautiful Day. Team Ng continues to expand its internet empire!
We found a perfect Friday afternoon in the middle of May to meet at my apartment to catch up over a glass of riesling. I picked up this particular bottle during my Ford Foodie Road Trip to Prince Edward County when I stopped in for a tour and tasting of Huff Estates Winery. We spent the next hour catching up whilst sipping.
Huff’s 2009 riesling “medium dry,” offers a waft of luxurious opulence to the olfactories with rose petal, nectarine and star anise amid delicate floral notes adding complexity to the petrol aromas. A subtleness of refreshing acidity transcends flavours of white peach, mandarin zest and lemon.
