LIFETIME's Man vs Child: Chef Estie Kung in Manila

8-year-old Estie Kung is no ordinary child.

If you're an 8-year-old child, I bet you'd rather be outside playing  with your friends or probably tinkering on your latest gadget. But Estie Kung is different. Rather than playing, she's bent on perfecting awesome dishes and whipping out the yummiest food there is. Meet Chef Estie Kung of Chinese-American descent. She's no ordinary child to begin with. Her favorite part of the house is none other than the kitchen which becomes her playground. 

We were delighted to get to meet Estie Kung in person as she had recently visited Manila to promote Man VS. Child: Chef Showdown. Lifetime’s culinary competition series, MAN VS. CHILD: CHEF SHOWDOWN, pits some of the world's most talented young cooks against the very people they look up to professionally trained, adult chefs.

They are highly influential, affecting each other’s’ and their seniors’ purchasing decisions. In 2018, they are projected to outpace the Baby boomer’s earnings ( 

Millennials, being the first digital natives, are very much aware of the endless possibilities that today’s hyper connected, technologically advanced world has to offer. They consume the internet and most especially, social media voraciously and so, they pose endless questions like “How can I earn enough to buy the things I want, and visit the places I want?” “Why do I still need to go to an office and punch a clock?”  “Or better yet, why can’t I work from home?”  “Which of today’s companies would be interested in a cleaner, safer planet, not just profits?”  These are questions that many from the Generation Y or the so called Millennials, are looking to answer and achieve, day in and out.
