Work with Me

work with me - jackie m

Thanks for visiting! I started this site when I was running my Malaysian restaurant in Concord (Sydney, Australia), which I closed in 2013 to look after my Down Syndrome baby, Noah.

Since then, my focus has moved towards creating food and travel content in the form of Live videos, television, recipe development, food industry consulting, and food and travel writing.

Over the years, I’ve had some wonderful opportunities to work with some of the best brands in the world in many and varied ways that involve capitalising on my large online following and recognition of my skills as a Southeast Asian cook and specialist.

Apart from presenting on television in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia, I’ve been the face of a number of major marketing initiatives including Malaysia Kitchen 2015, Good Food Month 2017,  Sydney’s Summer Fruit Festival 2017 and Postcode 2166 (2017-2018).

I’ve also been featured in promotional videos for Lenovo Australia & New Zealand, Rode Microphones, Grand Hyatt KL, Traders Hotel KL, Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Penang and Shangri-La Tanjung Aru among others.

If you think your brand would be a good fit, here’s a bit more about me for you to consider –

My Leverage

 I’m a professional cook and former restaurateur born and raised in Malaysia, whose parents made a living selling street food; I can speak with legitimate credibility about food and cooking as acknowledged by my online following and Klout score.

– As a Live Video pioneer, I have used and tested all the most popular Live video platforms on the market. I broadcast Live videos 4x a week simultaneously on, Facebook Live, Periscope and YouTube.  My background as an IT consultant means I’m at home with technology and adaptable to the ever-changing digital media landscape; my food knowledge lends me street cred, and my years of presenting on television and in front of live audiences means I’m completely at ease on camera.

– I’m a legitimate writer whose work has been featured on major digital news sites including The Huffington PostTourRadar (The Flight Centre’s travel magazine), Mamamia and The Mighty. My recipes have been featured on Yahoo7 and SBS Online among other places.

– My co-presenter and guest stints on numerous cooking shows means that I’m a familiar face on Australian and Asian television.

– My online content is driven by Live videos, through which I am able to create and repurpose multiple evergreen assets eg. recipe posts, e-book recipe compilations, edited videos and more.

– I’m a go-to Southeast Asian food expert for journalists who write for top publications including the Sydney Morning Herald, Daily Telegraph and SBS’s Feast Magazine.

– I share widely about my ever-evolving life journey from first generation migrant, to being a single mom raising a Down Syndrome child while running a business alone – and in so doing, I believe I attract an audience of substance that is loyal and supportive of my endeavours.

On-stage cooking demonstrations are another core feature of my work and I’ve been involved in numerous events across Australia, including multiple Malaysia Kitchen marketing initiatives, TAFE NSW Open Day and the Cabramatta Moon Festival.

– I’m co-founder at, an Indonesian “Netflix-for-Indies” startup that has partnership agreements in place including with KLIA TV (Kuala Lumpur International Airport Television) that can get your branded video content in front of an audience of 120 million in that region and worldwide.
