About Us

Makchic is a Malaysian-based online site for parents and people looking for trustworthy and authentic family-related content. We are passionate about projects that reflect and support our community of chic, curious, and spirited parents. We believe in the rich and diverse stories of parenthood that inform, support, and uplift all families out there. 

Makchic was originally founded in 2013 by Loo Jia-Wei and Hardesh Singh from the Popfolio Network. It was later run by Hardesh Singh and Laych Koh under new management in 2017. Since 2021, makchic has been independently owned by mothers for mothers. Our all-women team, under the leadership of Laych Koh, are committed to engaging our community through inclusive, responsible, and sustainable communications.
