See & Do,  Where to Stay

For Mummy Dearest: 10 KL Staycations Under RM250 that Mom Will Love

“The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” Albeit written years ago, this saying by William Ross Wallace (a title to a poem he wrote) holds true today as we celebrate motherhood and recognize the impact mothers have in our lives. To celebrate the women who raised us, we’ve carefully curated a list of 10 staycation ideas for you to show Mom just how much she means to you. Just like how Beyonce sang, “Who run the world?”, our answer is, Moms do!

This Mother’s Day, celebrate all the supermoms around you. Sometimes, all it takes is for you to tell them that they are doing a beautiful job and show them that they are loved (p/s: that’s when this list comes in handy).  Remember, it’s the moments spent together that counts. After all, “mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.”
