FUN WITH MUM
Exciting Activities To Do This Mother’s Day
By Hiranmayii Awli Mohanan
Mothers are divine creatures; they are unsung superheroes and are an embodiment of selflessness. While Mother’s Day is a day to honour motherhood, we believe that reverence and appreciation for our mothers should be a daily observance, not limited to a special day. She should be spoiled, pampered and loved every day. Sure, Mother’s Day gifts are always a nice surprise, but this day isn’t about spending a ton of money — it’s about spending quality time with her. Whether she likes to get out and explore or stay in and relax, we have rounded up some fun activities that will make this Mother’s Day one for the books.
• SWEAT IT OUT
Kick off Mother’s Day on a healthy note by either heading to a yoga class or even heading to the hills for a beautiful morning hike. Not only is this an incredible bonding activity, but you’ll both feel energised and ready to tackle more activities.
With the recent surge of glamping venues just outside of KL, it makes for a fun escapade to nature with style. Even if your mom is not the outdoorsy type, we bet she won’t mind luxe take on sleeping under the stars. Hello, adventurous girls trip!
Mothers slave over the stove almost every single day, so why not treat her to her favourite cuisine, at her favourite restaurant. Whether it’s as simple as breakfast or a special dinner, we know she would appreciate it.
What better way to bond with your mother than a road trip? It’s just you, songs, meaningful conversations and the open road. It could be a trip to Port Dickson or even to Ipoh for food hunting. You will return happy and closer than ever.
A massage is definitely a way to a mother’s heart. She will appreciate some well-deserved tranquillity for working so hard at the office and at home. She’ll leave feeling completely rejuvenated.
If mom prefers staying in and relaxing, we suggest getting her favourite bottle of wine, some hearty comfort food to accompany and to top it off, Netflix. She will feel comfortable and let’s be real, the gift of Netflix only keeps on giving.
Mother’s Day falls during that magical time of year when the weather is pleasantly warm and the trees and flowers are blooming, so why not move the party outside? A garden tea party is a special and elegant way to honour mom, and it’s an excuse to make fancy finger sandwiches and canapés.
