Mother’s day is the perfect excuse for you to treat your mom
extra special. Here are a few ideas you might want to consider for this special
- Surprise your mom by taking her to a
This can be an eating place that
she used to frequent or a building where her kampong used to be at. It’s a
great place for her to reminisce about the past, and perhaps for you to learn a
thing or two about her.
2. Organize a popiah party with all your mom’s closest friends.
What better way to celebrate
Mother’s day than with the people she loves having fun with? Lay out the
ingredients for popiah making ( popiah skin, bean sauce, stir fried turnip,
bean sprouts, French beans, lettuce leaves, grated carrots, chinese sausage
slices and sliced fried tofu, peanuts, fried shallots and shredded omelette),
and let the fun begin.
3. Retake your photos together
If your mom is the thrifty sort
who will do anything to make sure you save , then chances are she won’t want
any pampering without a reason. Retaking your photos are the perfect reason for
her to get her hair and makeup done.
4. Send her out for the day and spring clean the house
There are few things better than
coming home to spick a span house – even if you are not a mother.
5. Create your own home-spa treatment
You won’t have to bring her
anywhere – you can create it right in your own home. DIY your own masks and
make some spa food at end to complete her spa experience. Alternatively, you
can also indulge her with a Phillip B Four-Step Hair & Scalp
Treatment, $170, available at Sccube the Apothecary at Ngee Ann City.
6. Visit Prima Towers
It’s been a landmark for nearly
35 years and their Mother’s day promotion meal is the perfect way to pamper
your mother. The menu consists of awesome things like abalone, lobster,
shredded scallop with egg and peking duck – a delicious pampering to tell your
mom she’s queen.
7. Make brunch and add in little notes to all your dishes!
So Mother’s day brunch isn’t the
most recent thing on the planet, but adding
these little notes to your dishes make it that extra special. Better still,
make the food that remind her of your shared memories. Writing things like ‘ I
remember when you made this chicken soup for me when I was feeling down’ will
tell her that you treasure the little things that she does for you.
8. Broadcast your love for your mother publicly
photo or video of your memories with your mom so that it can be displayed
on the Brand’s Brid’s Nest Wall of Love at 313@somerset.
9. Bring your mom ice skating
Or an activity that she rarely
does like paintball. Give your mom an opportunity to see an adventurous side of
10. Book a last minute vacation..
It’s too late to book that last
minute vacation, but if your mom is a nature lover, then planning a camping
trip to Palau Ubin might just be the perfect choice.
