Food artist, Samantha Lee, and lifestyle blogger, Jacklyn Gan, define the power of a mother’s touch this Mother’s Day.
The world’s toughest job? Being a mother, and we couldn’t agree more. This Mother’s Day, we talk to two mothers, Malaysian food artist Samantha Lee and lifestyle blogger Jacklyn Gan, about embracing motherhood and their interpretation of the legendary “mother’s touch” – beautifully captured by SK-II in the video below:
The mother’s touch – small little gestures that a mother is willing to do for her child – is exactly what motherhood is about. One thing’s for sure: there is no one sure-win formula. Every mother has her own definition of the maternal touch.
Samantha Lee began experimenting with food art in 2008. Then, she was heavily pregnant with her second child. But she knew that the ability to “control the ingredients and adjust the flavours” according to her family’s specific taste was crucial in encouraging her daughters to eat healthily and independently. Today, she credits her daughters as her continuous source of inspiration behind plate after plate of edible art.
Previously known as Jacs After Party, lifestyle blogger Jacklyn Gan was a socialite at the top of her game. Being a mother at a young age was a major transformation for her, but “it was well worth it once we get to experience life with both our children”. Now recognised as Jacs After Married, Jacklyn’s passion for travel remains, but her bond with her children stays as her utmost priority.
What exactly is the definition of a mother’s touch to these two mothers? Read on to find out.
