Simply Her (Singapore) - - SimplyHer -

I’m an only child and was brought up with very few ex­tended fam­ily mem­bers to min­gle with, so noth­ing pre­pared me for mar­ry­ing into a huge Per­anakan fam­ily. Other than a lan­guage bar­rier (my mother-in-law speaks only Baba Malay), it was chal­leng­ing for me to deal with other rel­a­tives too. Thanks for the en­light­en­ing read, The Daugh­ter-in-Law’s Sur­vival Guide (July 2014). How I wish some­one had ad­vised me about all that ear­lier.

Ma­bel Chan Con­grat­u­la­tions, Ma­bel! We’ll be con­tact­ing you soon about how to claim your prize.
