Meet Adele, who transitioned from hard news to lifestyle writing early in her journalism career, shunning court cases and legco meetings for dinner tastings instead.


In 2015, Adele founded online lifestyle website The Loop HK (, and in late 2016 she authored a book on traditional Cantonese culture called “Hong Kong Food & Culture: From Dim Sum to Dried Abalone.”

Born in Hong Kong and raised in Toronto, Adele has a degree in Industrial (Systems) Engineering and had worked at international corporations like Kraft Foods and Goldman Sachs before deciding to transition into the media industry. She started as a journalist at the Hong Kong Standard and The Peak Hong Kong, where she covered everything from politics to court cases. She then moved on to editor positions at Where Hong Kong, HK Magazine and various titles under the HK Magazine group, and was most well known for her role as resident dining columnist at HK Magazine. She left in 2015 to start her own publishing company, Man Mo Media (, which is the parent company of The Loop HK.
