MC, The Taste Residence by Singleton Whisky
Gia Parungao, who is a member of the team at the luxury-lifestyle monthly magazine Prestige, is acknowledged as an opinion leader and tastemaker in Hong Kong’s food & beverage scene. Her passion for and knowledge of food and drink began during her teens, when she worked in bars and restaurants in Hong Kong; it was further kindled while working for a local public-relations company with a largely restaurant clientele. Since joining Prestige, she has further worked and collaborated with key members of the industry in this city, and has also travelled frequently to meet and report on leading restaurants, restaurateurs, chefs, sommeliers and mixologists. Gia is an established social-media presence: her Instagram account, which is largely devoted to food and drink, has more than 29,000 followers.
