From handwritten cards to homemade dumplings, these mums (including one celebrity mum-to-be!) took to Instagram to share their gifts
Queen of local television, Zoe Tay is known for keeping her family life private so it’s no surprise we don’t see any faces of her hubby or children on her Instagram. Instead, Tay posted a photo of a rice dumpling made by her mum. With the Dragon Boat Festival fast approaching, Tay’s mum has prepared delicious dumplings for her family, a tradition the family has stuck with since Tay was young.

Jacelyn Tay’s sweet little son, Zavier Wong gifted her a handmade card and he even drew a portrait of Tay. Judging from his skillful strokes, we think it’s pretty clear that he’s a creative in the making.

The pair stopped by Dream Aesthetics and bonded over some well-deserved pampering treatments.

On Mother’s Day, she’s finally ready to announce the good news to her fans via her Instagram. Dressed in a bright, tropical print one-shoulder dress, Wu proudly shows off her baby bump while her hubby Philip Lee kisses it. Take a moment to admire how blissful the couple looks amidst the #filterfree skies in Maldives.

Turns out, he isn’t naughty or purnished by his mummy. Sui apologies to her son in her Instagram caption, saying she insisted on taking a photo while Chia wanted to climb the stairs. Oh well, it’s Mother’s Day so Chia can’t fault her, right?

Last month, the newly minted All Time Favourite Artiste gave birth to her son and celebrated her 34th birthday. Besides being busy with breastfeeding on Mother’s Day, Peh indulged in some DIY time with her daughter who she affectionately calls #Babyqi on Instagram. See the flowers on her hands? They’re made from kitchen towels; talk about flowers that last!

That’s because her daughter and programme host Dee Hsu loves imitating and poking fun of her. The mother-and-daughter pair shares a close relationship both on- and offline. And on Mother’s Day, wine lover Hsu brought her mum out for a celebratory dinner — complete with a few drinks of course.

The loving mum shared this happy photo on her Instagram and captioned it: “The best present ever. #ILoveAden.” Photo: Kate Pang / Instagram Related: A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan News presenter and host, Diana Ser may have been waiting for her son, Jake Lye’s handmade card for some time. “I thought I had to transform myself into a fidget cube to get his attention,” Ser wrote. “But finally, a handicraft from the son.” It may look simple on the outside but a small bulb — powered by copper wire and battery — illuminates the heart shape from the inside when it’s switched on. How sweet and heartwarming indeed. Photo: Diana Ser / Instagram Related: A walk down memory lane with my mum part one: Julie Tan
