Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I have a son who’s one year old. He’s at a stage where he’s very chatty and babbles a lot, and it’s a lot of fun interacting with him. It’s not easy being a working mum because you have to juggle family and work, and I’m actually on the way to pick him up from childcare.
What has motherhood taught you?
To be patient, and enjoy every moment I’m in. I used to be someone who’s very kanchiong (harried) and fixated on getting things done quickly, but being a mum has taught me that not everything goes according to plan, and that I should enjoy being present as he grows up.
How do you manage your time?
A typical day for me would start by dropping my baby off at the childcare, and then coming in to work early so that I can leave early to pick him up at the end of the day. It helps that he’s easy to manage; we don’t have much trouble settling him down for bed, and that gives us more time to ourselves in the evening, whether it’s having dinner or making calls.
What do you do with your free time?
I just try to spend as much time as I can with my baby, so it’s mostly family activities, like taking him to swimming classes or visiting the museum.
If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
I’d invest part of the money to grow it, and use the balance to set up my own business. I like to bake and cook, so I might set up an F&B business if I could.
What are some recipes you’ve been testing out?
I like making desserts, so some of my favourite things I’ve made have been lemon blueberry pound cake, tiramisu, apple pie, and pandan cake. I haven’t been able to spend as much time baking since having a kid, but these are my go-to recipes for parties.
