Me, Myself and Mum – Life Lessons from the Kitchen

From being their little sous-chefs in the kitchen to treating them to a special meal with our first paycheck, the mother-daughter bond is truly a unique one that evolves beautifully as we grow up. 

We grow up looking to them for inspiration, advice and unconditional support – 24/7. They’ve had countless sleepless nights caring and worrying for us, sacrificing their own health for ours. Now as adults, it’s time for us to shower them with love and attention that they truly deserve – and to let them sleep in at last. 

This Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating this unique relationship by featuring two beautiful mother-daughter duos as they share a peek into their precious bond.  

Steffi, 33 and her mother Ruby, 60.

How would you describe your relationship with Mum?

She’s like a very close older sister that I can always rely on for any advice, be it for work or life – she’s always able to ground me. Mum is also a friend, to whom I’ll rant, share secrets and gossip! 

But mum will always be mum, there are things that she’ll sense even if I don’t say it – she’ll know and she’ll be there for me. She’s like my safe haven, someone I can truly trust and always fall back on.

What was your favourite moment with mum, Steffi?

I’m Cantonese, and in our culture, on the night before Chinese New Year, we have a tradition to stay up till really late at night. I’m really fond of the times when Mum and I would stay up, watch lame Cantonese comedy movies, and just talk about random things in life.

What was your favourite moment with your daughter, Ruby?

Whenever we’re eating. I love seeing her enjoy my cooking, those are the favourite moments I have with my daughter.

What does quality time with mum look like? 

It involves food, and a lot of talking – most likely about food itself, but about things in general as well. For example, how I’m doing at work, life updates about my husband and I etc. Food is definitely a key feature, though. We either eat out or have mum cook. 
She’ll also share her perspective and advice about things that I share with her. Sometimes it might not be what I want to hear, but it’ll definitely be something that I need to hear. There’s always a lot of encouragement for me in her words.

When was a moment in your life when you felt like “I wish mum was here!”?

Once when I first started living on my own, there was a really HUGE cockroach that managed to climb onto my desk and brushed against my hand. That was one moment that I really wished my mum was around because I knew she’d definitely save me. But, oh well, I had to save myself and take care of the problem (don’t ask me what happened to the cockroach).

When was the last time you both argued and why? How did you both resolve it?

Honestly, I don’t remember arguing with my mum. I think mum always gives in to me, which I’m extremely grateful for. She has allowed me to explore and fall. However, she has always encouraged me and given me the time and space to stand back up again.

What is your deepest confession to your mum?

Sorry that I prioritised work over family time. Thank you for always having my back.

Show your mum some extra love and appreciation this Mother’s Day, for all the sleepless nights she’s been through for you – with the gift of sleep! Our super-soft PJs are the perfect form of self-care, for cosy nights and relaxed mornings.

Me, Myself and Mum – From Mum to Best Friend

There’s nothing quite as special as the life-long bond between a mother and her daughter. As little girls, we look up to our mothers as role models – the superwoman who knows and does what’s best for everyone. As we grow older, our mums become our best friends with whom we can share our deepest fears and insecurities, knowing that we will get unconditional love and support in return.

Their sleepless nights from worry ensured that we got to sleep soundly and comfortably. It’s now time for us to show our appreciation – by letting her finally sleep in. 

This Mother’s Day, we’re celebrating this unique relationship by featuring two beautiful mother-daughter duos as they share a peek into their precious bond.  

Fianne, 35, mother of two and her mother Jasmine, 58

How would you describe your relationship with Mum?  

I have a very close relationship with my mum, where we’re able to talk about almost anything. We confide a lot in each other because I feel safest with her. I know that she’ll always have my back and be on my side no matter what.

What was your favourite moment with mum, Fianne? 

My favourite moments with mummy were when she used to take me out as a little girl, just the two of us. We spent time swimming, visiting bookstores, and I remember relishing the quality time and undivided attention from her.

What was your favourite moment with your daughter, Jasmine?

I love spending time with her having afternoon tea, baking together and enjoying the bakes after. I also love listening to her play the piano and watching her fall asleep on the same bed.

What does quality time with mum look like?  

Chilling over afternoon tea at her home and chatting about everything under the sun! When we lived together, we used to stay up to lounge around and chit chat through the night. Before I had kids of my own, we spent more alone time together and would go for walks in the park, or do girly stuff like shopping and going to the spa.

When was a moment in your life when you felt like “I wish mum was here!”?

There was a Chinese New Year which I spent in my husband’s hometown after we’d just got married and I missed home terribly, because I’d spent every single Chinese New Year of my life with my family in Singapore. There were moments I wished mummy was with me, like during our reunion dinner and when I went visiting.

When was the last time you both argued and why? How did you both resolve it? 

I don’t remember any specifics, although there have certainly been times when we’ve disagreed and argued. Usually, mummy is the one who initiates talking to me first and we’ll just forget everything and hang out again! She always tells me that there is no feud between a mum and daughter.

What is your deepest confession to your mum?  

Coming from a traditional and conservative family, we don’t exchange “I love you’s” so my deepest confession is that I love you mummy! I really admire the way she loves us so deeply and unconditionally, and I wish to be more like her in the way I love my own children.

The Dos and Don’ts of Caring for Your Lingerie

Your lingerie is a precious and delicate investment, costing you a pretty penny for a lifetime of comfort and peace – and should be treated as such. Spending a little more effort in taking good care of them now will help reduce waste and have a positive impact on the environment, your wallet and your body. Make your favourite lingerie items last a little longer with our lingerie care tips!

Washing Your Lingerie


Handing washing is the best way to extend the lifespan of your lingerie, especially if they’re made of delicate fabrics like lace, cotton and silk. Soak them in lukewarm water and mild soap before rinsing and wringing them gently. If you’re washing your lingerie in the washing machine (make sure that they’re machine-wash appropriate!), separate them from your other clothes into a lingerie bag before placing it in the machine. Ensure that bra hooks are clipped so that they don’t snag on your other clothes and get damaged.

Don’t use strong soaps or bleach when washing your intimates. The chemicals in strong detergents will break down the fabric and colour of the lingerie. Take note to treat your delicates with care – avoid aggressive handling during handwashing like excessive wringing or scrubbing, as this will ruin the material and shape. Never place your lingerie in the dryer as the heat will shorten the lifespan of the fabric, fade colours and even potentially cause them to shrink. 

Our Kiri Lingerie collection is made of polyamide and elastane, a blended synthetic fabric that is durable yet soft. Specially designed to be as fuss-free as possible, our Kiri Lingerie can be washed in the washing machine and dried without worry of shrinkage. It’s perfect for those looking for long-lasting lingerie essential that’s low maintenance and extremely easy to care for.

Storing Your Lingerie


After they’re completely dry, gently fold and stack your lingerie and store them in a cool, dry place. Face the cups of your bras outwards and stack them to preserve their shape and size. You can also consider placing them in a bra storage organiser or drawer set away from the rest of your clothes to prevent any snagging or transference of colour.


Avoid folding your bras in half. This will make them lumpy and uncomfortable and cause extra wear and tear to their wires and seams.

Replacing Your Lingerie


It’s advisable to throw out and replace your regularly-used lingerie every 12 months. This is to ensure that your intimate areas are protected from the bacteria and germs that can remain on old, worn out lingerie even after repeated washing. Maintaining good personal hygiene e.g., clean bathroom habits and regular showers, also helps to extend the lifespan of your lingerie by reducing the amount of bacteria that can transfer onto your delicates.

What is the best sleeping position for you

Ever woken up with a stiff neck or back and had your entire day ruined? The position that you sleep in has a huge impact on not just how well you sleep but the rest of your waking day as well.

So which position is the best to get a good night’s sleep? It all depends on your needs. Different sleeping positions can have different benefits, and you might find yourself favouring different positions depending on your physical health and needs.

Let’s look at some of the common sleeping positions and their benefits.

Fetal Position

This is the most popular position by far, and with good reason. The curled position, with your knees tucked into your chest, helps alleviate lower back pain and snoring among adults. It is also especially favoured by pregnant women as it improves circulation for both the mother and baby and reduces pressure on their veins and internal organs. 

However, curling into the position too tightly for too long can leave you feeling slightly stiff in the neck, and limit deep breathing during the night.

On your Stomach

This sleeping position can help adults with their snoring and sleep apnea issues, as their tongues and soft tissues are pulled down on and airways are opened. However, this position isn’t advisable for pregnant women and those with existing neck and back issues because of the stress it places on your spine and joints. When sleeping on your stomach, your neck and back are out of alignment as you need to twist your neck out to breathe. 

If you’re used to sleeping on your stomach, you can use a thin pillow to reduce the angle between your head and neck and keep them in alignment. Placing a pillow under your hips can also help reduce lower back pain. Stretch well before and after sleep to loosen your muscles and get your body in alignment. 

On your Side

Similar to the fetal position, sleeping on your side is generally great for you. Your spine is well supported by the natural curve of your body and it can help with snoring and sleep apnea issues. Did you know that the side that you sleep on also matters? Sleeping on your left side (the side on which your heart and certain important organs for digestion are) can help with digestion and reduce heartburn

As with most positions, sleeping on one side throughout the night can cause some stiffness in your shoulders and jaw tightness. For those concerned about their skin, sleeping on your side for too long can also contribute to wrinkles.

Choose a good and supportive pillow to avoid neck and back pain. Placing a firm pillow between your legs helps to align your hips and reduce lower back stiffness. 

On your Back

Sleeping on your back has been widely proven to be the best position to sleep in with a multitude of health benefits. Your spine and neck are in full alignment due to gravity. This also helps reduce pressure on your joints, so those with hip and knee pains are most comfortable sleeping in this position. Sleeping on your back limits contact between your pillow and your face, helping to keep it clean and slow down the onset of wrinkles. 

However, sleeping on your back can also trigger and worsen sleep apnea issues, as your tongue is more likely to rest on your airways. Those with existing back pain should ensure that they are well-supported, perhaps with an additional soft pillow under their back. 

On average, we spend about 26 years of our lives sleeping. It’s important to not spend them sleeping in uncomfortable positions that can negatively impact the rest of the time you spend awake. 

Establishing good sleeping habits like a simple night-time ritual and wearing comfortable clothing to bed can also help improve the quality of your sleep in a big way. 

It might be tough to inculcate new sleeping habits, especially as an adult, but don’t stress too much about it. Listen to your body and do what works for you at a gradual pace and in a healthy manner.
