“When I was young, my mum stopped working so that she can care for me and my mother. She ensured that we are send to school and fetch home on time, prepared home cooked food for us and give us an environment where we can grow, study and be successful adults. It was 20 odd years of sacrifice. After I got married and have children of my own, she continue to help me take care of my children. Thanks to her and her never ending support and help, I went on to have 4 children of my own. She has been selfless as a mother and now as a grandmother. She helps me with my household so that i can go to work with a peace of mind. She is the nanny, housekeeper, teacher, chef all roll in 1. I am forever indebted to her for her selflessness in the past and now!”

“Family is not always about blood. Sometimes it’s about who is there to hold your hand and support you unconditionally. My mother-in-law suffered in silence. She not only have to care for my father-in-law and lost him to sickness. She also helped to care for my son (her grandson), with severe eczema. Words can never describe the pain and the heartaches that she has to endure. She loves us so much. She rocks!”

“My wife rocks as a mother to our 3 lovely kids and she went through every pregnancy with difficulties – especially with our youngest pre-mature 27 weeks girl . She had to go through C-section to save our child and deliver fresh breast-milk to and fro hospital everyday as our child was in neonatal for more than 2 months. She takes good care of our 3 kids and the household I wish for her to have a wonderful Mother’s Day. On behalf of our 3 kids , I want to let her know we all love her.”

“My mum is a amazing selfless individual who always done her best. As my dad is the only breadwinner in the family who doesn’t earn much, she will scrimped and saved every cents just to give us the best. Whenever we have a bad day, she is always there to give her the best advice. When I gave birth to two kids, she volunteered to help me look after them despite that she can retired and have a easy relaxed life with my dad. She cook the best food and making sure that my two kids are well-taken care of so that I can focus myself in work. She often will give us good advice on how to main a good and stable marriage. I learnt a lot from her on how to be a better person. As you get older, you realized what matters most, and most importantly, who matters most. My mum is my best friend, and that is why she ROCKS!”
