ANGIE & KATHLEEN
Mother-in-law & Daughter-in-law
We hear stories that in-law relationships might be tricky, but Kathleen and Angie’s story tells us otherwise. Angie's motherly love and selflessness has resulted in a beautiful relationship with Kathleen.
1. Tell us more about your relationship with your mother-in-law.
It’s an extraordinary one! To me, a great mother-in-law and daughter-in-law relationship is really hard to come by.
2. How has she been like a mother to you?
On a daily basis, she looks out for me like how she does for her children. I remember there was once when I was really sick at
home and my husband was out for work, she took care of me like making me lunch and made ‘Cheng Teng’ for me.
3. How has she been an important part of your life?
Since I said “yes” to my husband’s proposal, she has been the VIP of my life as she is the one who brought the love of my life
to this world! At home, she is the pillar of support for the family. And at work, she is very important as she is the lady boss!
4. What is the one value that she taught you?
Self-care. It’s important to take care of ourselves in order to take better care of our loved ones. Especially so in this era where women play multiple roles, we should always have me-time to recharge and be better versions of ourselves.
5. If you could pick a flower that best represents her, what would it be and why?
If I could pick a flower, I would pick Carnation! A pink one to be specific as it symbolises the love of a mother. She opens
her arms and heart to include me to love as if I'm her own. I am doubly blessed to have two mothers to love as well.
