What is your current job? Or what did you do before staying at home (if you don’t currently work outside the home)?
I’M YOUR LOCAL FLORIST! Most of my customers are from this village and I am so grateful for having them support me chasing my dreams.
Share your thoughts on the concept of “it takes a village” – is it important for moms to join a village?
When women support women, incredible things happen. It doesn’t have to be big, even the littlest thing counts. You will feel like you’re not alone. There’s always moms who will offer help when needed, you just have to ask.

Durian Crepe Cake!
You are given 4 hours of FREE babysitting. What would you do?
Take a longggg bath.

How has becoming a mother changed you?
I wasn’t very good with kids but now I have more compassion towards them. I start being kinder to myself, being patient and appreciating every tiny moment that I have with my family. Definitely there are some bad days but I always try to find the good in everything. I would say I’m now more mature in handling my emotions.
I am happiest when...
I get enough sleep!
