Mother Knows Best

In hon­our of Mother’s Day, a few fa­mil­iar faces share the best ad­vice they’ve ever re­ceived from their mums

My mother [Rosanna Wong] al­ways says, “You can do any­thing you want, but what­ever you do, never do it half-heart­edly. If you are go­ing to do some­thing, stay the course and carry it through—or else, don’t do it.” My mother [Lucy Yang] used to al­ways say this Chi­nese proverb: “There’s many a slip twixt cup and lip,” mean­ing don’t count your chick­ens be­fore they hatch. The ad­vice I con­sis­tently got from my mother [Har­riet Tung] grow­ing up—and still do to this very day—is this: “Pro­tect your skin. Try to stay out of the sun. Al­ways wear sun­block on your face, even when it’s cloudy out. One day you’ll thank me.” My mother sounds like my der­ma­tol­o­gist, but she has the most amaz­ing skin! Per­haps not the most mem­o­rable, but prob­a­bly the most con­sis­tently and con­stantly pre­scribed from mum [Mar­jorie Yang] to me— “Calm down!”
