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, and Sydney’s Summer Fruit Festival 2017. 

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 –

Rankings –

Television Shows in which I’ve appeared as a presenter –

    • Everyday Gourmet (Channel Ten)
    • Malaysia Kitchen (Channel 7TWO)
    • Let’s Do Coffee(Channel Ten)
    • The Travel Bug (Channel 7TWO)
    • Fish & Hunt Australia (Foxtel)
    • Seekers (NTV7)
    • Various breakfast television cooking segments

My Leverage

– I’m the #2 most followed Australian on Google+. What my Google+ following means is that every time any of my 1.8 million followers use Google to search for something (eg. Chiang Mai, airline, travel, Malaysian hotel, satay recipe etc.), if it’s something I’ve previously shared on that platform, it WILL show up on the first page of their search results.

– I’m a Huffington Post Contributor, and I also write travel pieces for  TourRadar , the travel magazine for The Flight Centre. I blog extensively on this website and on numerous other platforms, and my posts have been picked up and republished on media sites such as Mamamia and The Mighty.

– As a Live Video pioneer, I have used and tested all the most popular Live video platforms on the market. My background as an IT consultant means I’m at home with technology and adaptable to the ever-changing digital media landscape.

– I’m a familiar face on Australian and Asian television networks due to my co-presenter and guest stints on cooking shows.

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

– Time Out Sydney once referred to me as “Sydney’s High Priestess of Malaysian Cuisine”, and that label has stuck over the years. 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’m constantly on the lookout for more travel opportunities, though my Down Syndrome son may need to come along. This varies on a case-by-case basis, but any post that includes Noah ALWAYS generates more reactions and interest so it makes sense as a brand to integrate him into my campaigns.

Live 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.

– I’m co-founder at, an Indonesian “Netflix-for-Indies” startup that has partnership agreements in place that can get your branded video content in front of an audience of 120 million in that region and worldwide.

– Coming from a family of street food hawkers and having cooked professionally for over 15 years, my audience recognises and appreciates that my content carries authority and weight.
