There's no better time like the present to celebrate women – in every sense of the word. No matter your career, what you look like or where you're from, the trials and tribulations of being a woman, let alone a mum, has often been under appreciated and we're thrilled that world is finally starting to take note. Taken them long enough, right?
With Mother's Day only a few days away, we caught up with Jenn Lam (@pumpkinjenn), Erika Wai (@erikawai), their mothers, and #legend's very own fashion director @aka.kimbui, and her adorable kids, at Mott 32 to celebrate one of the most important relationships in people's lives. Over tea and dim sum (note: it's not a proper family get-together unless there's dim sum involved), these inspiring mums share with us what it's like to be a real, everyday mum – regardless of their background, profession or age. From the most embarrassing moments and nicknames to what they love most about each other, these families remind us of the simple and heartfelt moments we all share with our friends and families.
Aside from the flowers, cards and gifts you'll be giving her this Sunday, make sure you take the time to give your mum, or the mother figure in your life, some much deserved recognition. Not sure how to start? Hopefully, these mums, daughters and kids will give you a little inspiration.
