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!
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.
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.
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.
