Have you ever sat on your couch in the middle of the night with a spaghetti stained t-shirt, eating half a chocolate bar and wondering where your day went? Yup, me too. This series is for you, me and the other moms who are trying to figure out this parenting-thing.
Episode Four: Me Time and Their Time with Siu Lim
A long overdue follow up to my conversation with Siu Lim (sorry guys, it's just been a mom couple of weeks..) I share on what my Me Time looks like, and how Siu Lim has integrated solo mom-kid time with each of her children. I braced myself for what's to come when Bao gets to Yusuf's age, and i think I have to start prepping myself for the Birds and Bees conversation - if I have questions about it, I think I will go to Siu for some guidance!
Episode Three: Divorcing Abuse with Siu Lim
Siu Lim is an icon of healthy living in Kuala Lumpur. Known as a pilates instructor who will make you cry on the reformer, Siu Lim co-parents her four kids while living as an expat in Malaysia. We break down her decision on why she divorced her ex-husband and what we can do to support a friend who may be experiencing a challenging relationship.
Episode Two: Working Mom Mornings with Alyaa Ramli
Alyaa Ramli is climbing the corporate ladder. She works extremely hard and is very good at her job (bias friend in me speaking). Alyaa and I speak about meshing together a work-home-life routine that works for her and her family, and how she still did-it-all during MCO.
Episode One: Figuring out Birth with Nadiah Hamzah
Nadiah Hamzah is an awesome local director. I have admired ever since I watched her feature film, Motif last year. She is "Mom" to six-year-old Zara. We swap birthing stories, discuss how Nadiah battles mom-guilt while being on set, and how she has gotten over her WebMD obsession.
