Mother's Day is coming and if you’re cracking your head trying to figure out how to give your mum the best experience ever on this special day, read on.
It might be difficult at times when you don’t have a clue on what to do for your mum. Aside from just saying “I Love You”, there are plenty of exciting and interesting activities that you can do together to strengthen your bond.
Is your mum the active kind of woman who enjoys various sports and activities? Good news, here are some humble suggestions on possible things you can do with your sporty mum. If she is one who loves extreme sports, then rock climbing might be a good choice. If outdoor activities are her preferred thing to do during leisure time, then consider mountain biking, hiking or walking on the weekend. Other than that, this might be a great opportunity for you to try out a new, fun and family-friendly recreational activity – orbing (also known as zorbing). It is an experience where you get to roll inside an inflated, transparent ball and you can play it dry or wet!

If uou have a mum who always seems to be working and doesn’t seem to have much time for anything else, give her the respite she needs from all that work and take her away from it all to a relaxing and comfortable retreat. Let her calm her mind and body in a truly peaceful setting. If your mum doesn’t have time for a quick getaway, then arrange a pampering spa session for her at a spa where she will be treated like a queen for a day. Another great option is to spend quality time with your mother. Pick a day from the calendar and start planning for a getaway with your mum and the rest of the family. City folks, enjoy a weekend getaway to Janda Baik for a simple picnic and riverside retreat - an easy trip that will take you away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Janda Baik, Pahang

We all have that one BFF, but is your mum one of your BFFs as well? Try out a few of these fun ways to celebrate the special day with your BFF mum: window-shopping, getting your hair and nails done, and have a cooking or baking session. (Almost) every girl likes to shop, and this includes mummies, too! Be it grocery shopping or clothes hunting, shopping together is a fun activity for you both to spend time together. If your mom is a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen, let her stay in her element and volunteer to be a part of her kitchen crew. You can bond over recipes and well-plated dishes that you created together.
Café hopping is quite trendy these days and with cafes sprouting on seemingly every corner, it’s not hard to find a café that you haven’t tried before. Instead of just café hopping though, why not be a little more adventurous and organise a foodie trip? Plan a drive out of the city or even to another state to experience the culinary delights that they offer. Check out food blogs to plan your trip and plot your journey carefully with a different place to eat for each meal. And don’t just limit yourself to air-conditioned comfort – hawker and roadside stalls have plenty to offer! Give Penang, Ipoh or Melaka a try.
