Delia Deng

Delia is a contributing writer and the tour leader for I Ate My Way Through Chinatown Sydney. Currently studying Marketing, PR and Advertising, Delia lives to explore food and the world. She is hopelessly idealistic and believes dreams are what make the world beautiful. She always strives for balance in life; between work and play, health and indulgence. On any day Delia can be found sweating it out with the newest fitness fad, or gorging out on BBQ buffet. Often both. Believing in the realm of opportunities, the world is her oyster. A delicious, plump oyster that she will most likely eat.
