Jasmine is the co-founder of the award-winning travel agency, Oriental Travels and Tour LLP. After working 30 years in the advertising industry, she decided to make the bold decision to change career paths. Jasmine’s passion for tourism prompted her to complete the tour guide certification course, where she met her current co-founder, Stanley.
Jasmine noticed that beyond the typical tourist destinations in Singapore, tourists often miss out on experiencing the ‘authentic’ Singaporean experience. This inspired her to create heartland tours which explores the hidden gems of our local neighbourhoods, allowing tourists to immerse in our unique culture. Her most popular tour to date is the ‘The Creepy Tales of Singapore’ which explores the World War II battlegrounds. The tour taps on good ol’ innate fear that comes from hearing real-life anecdotes of spine chilling encounters alongside the stories of historical sites.
As a strong believer that life is too short for regrets, Jasmine leads the way and hopes for everyone to discover their passions and develop their interests. Her decision to pursue a career in tourism has allowed Jasmine to connect with people from all over the world, while proudly sharing about her home country.
In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.
Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.
