The Blue Flower Party That Almost Wasn’t

“Can you talk?” Phone in one hand, luggage and baby Noah in the other, I typed those words and hit Send from the immigration line at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Almost immediately my Note 8 started ringing in response.   All around me were signs that said “No Phone Use Allowed”, but desperate times called for desperate measures. I » Read More

Ginkgo Bar & Dining – Flavours of Harbin in the Heart of Sydney

A week ago, I was invited to try the food at Ginkgo Bar & Dining, a new eatery in my old neighbourhood of Darlinghurst. I was told it was a cosy late-night dim sum bar with dishes inspired by the northeastern Chinese city of Harbin. Now, I remember back when Chinatown between 11am-3pm was the only option if I wanted top notch dim sums; it » 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

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
