Welcome to my personal website
Over the years, there have been many times when I have considered setting up my own little space on the internet. Now I’ve finally done it, I can share what I’ve been doing and other thoughts with friends, family and other like-minded people.
What are my interests?
I have a wide area of interests which include but are not limited to:
- Linux and FOSS
- Programming (Learning)
- China and the Chinese language
- Card magic
I’m fluent in English and Chinese and can understand Spanish at a push, but it’s been a long time since I have spoken it.
What’s with the name?
Jiewawa is an affectionate nickname given to me by my wife’s Chinese family. The name comes from the facts that my name starts with a ‘J’ and because I have a chihuahua. You can think of it as J-huahua, but it’s pronounced je-wa-wa
