Ting Ting was born on a snowy day on the frozen tundra of Shenyang, China. At age 4, she relocated to the USA and shortly after dedicated much of her free-time to becoming a stereotypical kid growing up in the nineties. Whether it was amassing a mind-boggling array of troll dolls, watching countless hours of Saved by the Bell, or stuffing her face with Bagel Bites and Fruit Roll-ups, Ting was always up on the latest fad. In the summers, Ting was shipped off to China like many of her Chinese school brethren and subsisted solely on plain rice and twice daily trips to McDonalds or KFC. Ting Ting attended The George Washington University with dual majors in International Business and Finance. Upon graduation she moved to New York City to pursue a career in finance. Having searched for 3 years on Mott Street, down Canal Street, and through all of Flushing, she was unable to find a dumpling suitable to her standards so she opted to return to her roots with a move to Shanghai, China in 2010. After finding hundreds, if not thousands, of dumplings that were suitable to her tastes, she’s decided to take some time off in exploration of other culinary delights, McDonald’s and KFC not included. In August 2013, following the trip in Southeast Asia, she plans to move back to America and drive directly to a Chipotle.
