Our Team

Laych Koh

Publisher & Owner

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.

Najmin Tajudin

Chief Executive Officer

Over the past 15 years, Najmin worked as a management consultant, ran a community-supported agriculture (CSA) programme out of an integrated goat farm, and helped manage an equine centre. A biologist by training, this mum of three now has all her kids in school. She wants to spend more time reading, writing and gardening, and sharing her discovery of fun local places at Mums of Makchic.

Liyana Taff

Special Projects Director

Liyana was a public relations practitioner, a government consultant, and now an aspiring entrepreneur and a mother of three (with another on the way.) 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.

Kimberly Lee

Managing Editor

Kimberly is a lawyer, children’s book author and a mother of two wilding sons. She writes about life, loss, love and everything in between as she explores her greatest adventure yet: motherhood. When she isn’t busy writing or navigating life with her family, Kimberly can be found singing, stress baking and covertly consuming her own baked goods.

Lu Sean Seah

Chief Operating Officer

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 writing, Lu Sean loves crossing animals while nursing a teh tarik. She believes that mothers can handle most anything, with a little bit of time.

Nora Ismail

Social Media Editor

Before starting her own home-based cake artistry studio, Nora spent six years in digital advertising, working with brands from the telco sector to the airline industry. She is most comfortable in creative environments, which may explain the Instagram addiction and the mountain of chaotic art projects she has ambitiously undertaken with her two young stepchildren at home.
