Laych is a journalist and teacher who divides her time between Malaysian and London, where she is currently based. Having been a news reporter for over a decade, she now finds great pleasure in talking to small children about dinosaurs and poo. Currently focusing on her two young sons, she believes in the extraordinary power and resilience of mothers around the world.
Liyana was a public relations practitioner, a government consultant, an aspiring entrepreneur and now a mother of three. She loves eating, reading and travelling. However with young kids in tow, sometimes she’s content with doing all three vicariously through other people’s Instagram accounts.

A biologist by training, this mum of three (5 to 13 years old) now has all her kids in school.

Social Media Editor
Murni is a dreamer and a serial entrepreneur. Before motherhood, she was a jewelry maker, event planner, and florist. Her days are still filled with color, fun and flora thanks to Crayola, playgroups and the leaves her son picks while out on their walks. She enjoys reading, diving and her precious “me time” to work on new dreams.
Lu Sean Seah
Special Projects Coordinator/Writer
In various prior roles, Lu Sean absolutely killed it in arts management, public relations and law. She now herds a peer-learner, pre-schooler, and a cat (he’s fluffy, not fat). While not busy at volunteering for a family support group, Lu Sean loves planning holidays while nursing a teh tarik. She believes that mothers can handle most anything, with a little bit of time.
