Twitch Update

Passed 10K views on my Twitch channel as I near 3 months on the platform. I've just attained Twitch Partner status, but I gotta tell ya, livestreaming to an audience of zero some days was an exercise in character-building :D Thanks to those who stuck by me from Day One, you know who you are. www.JackieM.Live           » Read More

My Mother’s Day Wish – Please Help Wyatt

If you’ve followed me for any length of time you’ll know about baby Noah and his rough start to life, with 3 lifesaving operations and a 7-month stint in hospital which included a number of late-night callouts for me to go to the ICU to prepare for his demise. I know from the many, many private messages of support, that Noah has inspired you » Read More

10-Day Pacific Islands Cruise – Carnival Legend

When the Inner West Mums Facebook group told me they’d raised enough money to send me and Noah on a “short break” I had no idea it’d be as extravagant as a 10-day Pacific Islands cruise. The closest I’d gotten to joining a cruise was when I was approached by another cruise line a couple of years prior about doing a TV commercial for them. Their » Read More

Baby Noah and Jackie on a Cruise

A couple of months ago, a group of women from the Inner West Mums Facebook group decided to raise money to pay for Noah and me to go on a cruise. (Story here >> http://jackiem.com.au/2016/10/06/baby-noah-channel-tens-studio-ten/ ) I was hesitant about sending the wrong message if I were to accept these women’s generous offer; I didn’t want » Read More

My Food Philosophy

When I started my Malaysian food business in Sydney back in the 90s, my mission was to recreate the flavours of my favourite dishes that I missed so much from my upbringing in Malaysia. This culinary raison d’être has by and large remained intact to this day, much to the chagrin of fad dieters and allergy sufferers. I do dabble in shortcuts, » Read More

Video – Baby Noah on Channel Ten’s Studio Ten

This is the interview I did on Studio Ten last Friday regarding baby Noah and the controversy about having him with me at my markets (I haven't watched it; I steer clear of watching myself on TV). Noah was meant to have been in the studio with me but he was unusually unsettled that morning (typical!) so someone had to keep him company out in the » Read More

Déjà Vu All Over Again – Baby Noah Markets Controversy

(I’m tired, sleep-deprived and a bit emotional but I feel compelled to get this out so apologies for the inevitable rambling and incoherence.) How time flies. I just realised it’s been over a year since the debacle at OGM that saw an anonymous member of the public petition to have my Down Syndrome baby, Noah, removed from the market. ** The » Read More

Jackie M and Live Video – The Early Days

Some of you might remember the days when I used to run Google Hangouts-on-Air weekly, where I taught my audience how to cook Malaysian food via Live video. You can still watch replays of these broadcasts on my YouTube channel - I was one of the pioneers of using Live video as a platform to do what was effectively a cooking show (however sad » Read More

7VEN Messenger Bag – My Review

7VEN Messenger Bag by AlpakaGear.com Full disclosure - I'm friends with one of the founders of Alpaka Gear, so I was very fortunate to have been sent one of the prototypes of the 7VEN Messenger Bag, which I received earlier this week. The Kickstarter campaign for the bag only launched less than a day ago as I write this » Read More

Introducing TeebTV – A Regional “Netflix-for-Indies”

Back in late June, I made an announcement about my appointment as a co-founder of TeebTV.com, a "Netflix-for-Indies" startup based in Indonesia and Malaysia. Ever since then, I've been inundated with messages regarding my original post, so I've decided to compile a quick introduction and to clarify some common misunderstandings about TeebTV.
