A mother's love

Text: Jeway Tan Eunice Sng


It is that time of the year where Mother's Day is upon us, which gives us another reason to pamper and celebrate one of the most important persons in our lives, and the one who gave us life. Mum's the world. It is also a time where husbands can pamper the mother of their children. And while last year, we were all restricted to the limits of circuit breaker, this year is perfect time for that do-over. Below, we list all the things you can do to shower mum with love — to celebrate the woman that she is.

Kai Spa at Kai Suites

Pamper your mother with a relaxing spa treatment at Kai Suites to unwind from the stressful year she had. And for those who just had a baby, it's the perfect place for mothers and their newborns. Kai Suite's spa, Kai Spa, is an elegant and tranquil holistic sanctuary with spa rooms, a salon, and a relaxation lounge. Their merit lies in traditional massage techniques that boost the body's healing process, allowing the body to be rejuvenated and have a speedy recovery for moms who just had a baby.

For something a little more impactful, opt for Jamu Massage & Bengkung Wrap. This massage uses Jamu, a herbal paste originated from Indonesia, on the abdomen to cut down fat deposits, flush out toxins and reduce the retention of fluid.  The wrap used in this treatment is an effective fading age-old binding technique used to cover a large area of the body, mainly from the hip to the ribcage. This technique is customisable to any body shape or sizes and, together with the Jamu massage, will work to shape the abdomen back to its former glory.

Unusual blooms from The Humid House

Most ladies love flowers, but The Humid House's arrangements manage to veer out of the stereotypical and often, make for an unexpected gift. After all, they are a botanical design studio, beyond your everyday florist. Their newest Mother's Day collection called the Sun's Embrace will showcase a range of bright and vibrant plants and flowers that were inspired by Singapore's sunny, energetic and verdant environment. If she loves orchid, the Orchid Effusion — a bouquet of locally grown orchid, or the Orchid Bowl — a "bowl" featuring orchids and moss that will last beyond Mother's Day. If she is a peony lover, the choose any of the Swan and Swanling bouquets – featuring peonies and lilac alstroemerias.

A Mother's Day meal at TWG

What most people got mixed up is that a way to anyone's heart is through the stomach — even if she's not entirely satisfied about her waistline. A specially curated meal at TWG awaits with their Mother's Day set menu. Here is where she can sip on some of the finest teas and dig into mouth-watering plates of succulently pan-roasted stone bass fillet, wilted Malabar spinach with golden Korean brown rice pancake — served with Earl Grey d'Amour pickled red onion and sea urchin beurre blanc sauce.

A 6-course experience at La Dame de Pic

For something a tad bit more extravagant, make a date for a 6-course meal specially created for Mother's Day at the stunning La Dame de Pic. It's where she can savour the iconic delectable molten cheese centre pasta called the Berlingot, followed by a Hokkaido Seabream that is marinated with Tasmanian peppercorn, sake and rose petal. Followed by a choice between a tender O'Connor Beef — cooked with bergamot and ginger-infused watercrest pesto over coals, or an Australian John Dory, mixed with creamy meunière sauce and a multi-textured zucchini. To end off this spectacular meal, a Tochiotome Japanese Strawberry featuring cherry blossom chantilly, jasmine tea crèmeux, and almond ice cream will be sure to hit her sweet spot. All with the option of pairing with a specially curated wine selection or, if she is not a fan of alcohol, a glass of non-alcoholic beverage.
