In some rather exciting news (which you may have already seen on TV or read on Twitter or Facebook), I was recently asked if I’d like to do a live cross to Channel 7’s Sunrise.
On TV? Me?
I’ve never really liked seeing myself in any video footage, even if it’s the boyfriend shooting me on holidays. I think video shows all of one’s flaws including those awkward faces you never knew you could pull.
But putting that fear aside, I said yes. Definitely, yes. I am a believer in pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
So anyway, here it is… A night owl, up early, wearing her favourite Alannah Hill belt, cooking on live TV for Australia nationwide. You may want to note all the pauses too; that’s me trying my best not to say “umm”.

Video description: Jennifer Lam cooks up a Cantonese Stir-Fried Rice with Asian Home Gourmet’s spice paste and talks about Chinese New Year traditions and her I Ate My Way Through series on a live cross with James Tobin to Channel Seven’s Weekend Sunrise with Andrew O’Keefe and Samantha Armytage.
P.S. It turns out that I love being in front of the camera afterall! Watch this space 😉
