Jamie in 29 seconds

I was born in Singapore and immigrated to Canada at the age of 12. Seeing snow fall from the sky for the first time is still one of the most magical experiences of my life and I’m currently still on a journey in discovering what it means to be Canadian, eh? Most of my family still live in Singapore & Malaysia and I go back to visit every few years.

My partner and I met in Film school. I placed a note on a receipt with my phone number and taped it to a drink he usually bought (I worked at the school cafe). He called me 3 days later which he told me was the “rule”. Fast forward 9 years, we now live in a little condo in Burnaby with our Chorkie and love spending our time hiking, camping, chillin’ at the beach and being outdoors. We dream to own land on the Sunshine Coast, Island or Interior one day.

As much as we try to keep a clean home like you see on Pinterest, it’s not the reality. One day our not-so-white-carpet will drive me insane and I’ll likely rip it out and replace it with hardwood. Who’s idea was it to install white carpets anyway? Call me weird but when I find the time, I think it’s relaxing walking to check the mail and ironing my laundry.

I have a weakness for ice cream, coffee & musicals and my dream is to be able to travel the world and learn more about different cultures. Bucket list countries are Kenya, India, Costa Rica and Iceland. I hope to be able to go skydiving in New Zealand, scuba diving with whales in Tonga and fill my left arm with a tattooed sleeve before I grow too afraid to do so. I’d love to be able to do another volunteer trip someday soon too!
