“We fight, but you’re al­ways there when I need you”

Herworld (Singapore) - - FEATURE -

“We may quar­rel a lot and not see eye to eye on many things, but I know you al­ways put us first in ev­ery­thing you do.

A few years ago, I took a three-month sab­bat­i­cal. You were the one who ac­tu­ally pushed for me to go to Lon­don and take cour­ses in busi­ness strat­egy and con­sult­ing, lux­u­ry­brand man­age­ment and a so­cial me­dia boot camp. I had not made many friends and was start­ing to feel a bit lonely there. You knew how I was feel­ing and flew out to ac­com­pany me for a few weeks. You even ended up tak­ing some cour­ses your­self. It felt like home over­seas, and I was very touched.

We went shop­ping, sight­see­ing, vis­ited restau­rants and went to plays. But the main thing I learnt from you dur­ing this time was that peo­ple should never stop learn­ing, no mat­ter how old they are.” – Mer­l­iza Lim, 32
