Play • 26 min

Poh Ling Yeow is a creative soul, she cooks, paints, is a makeup artist and graphic designer. Coming from a family of proud Chinese Malaysian home cooks, Poh first came to our attention on Masterchef Australia and has gone on to host her own cooking shows, but there’s far more to Poh than what we see on TV.

In this episode Jess goes deep with Poh to find out how she processed her marriage break up, and what allowed their relationship to transform into something beautiful and unbreakable’ while her ex formed a relationship with her best friend. In fact, Poh talks to Jess about the beautiful relationships she has formed with both of her ex-husbands, even calling on them for dating advice

Poh also reveals why she always felt ‘different and on the outer’ when growing up in both Australia and Malaysia, being obsessed with American movies and the notion of being popular, and what led to her decision to ‘ditch’ her given name Sharon, and embrace her Chinese name Poh.
