What if I tell you with just a beach mat, some snacks and a beautiful view, you can make your mum the happiest person in the world. Sometimes what it takes to show our gratitude towards the people we love is as simple as spending quality with them. If you grow up in a typical Asian household, you’ll understand that it’s pretty uncommon for the children to share their feelings with their parents. That’s a bad culture that we have to break! As you stroll down the scenic beach together, have a heart to heart talk with your mum. Both of you will surely love the time spent at the beach!

2. Shop till you drop in Design Village.

No matter the time of the year, you can be sure that Design Village will always have ridiculously awesome sales. Honestly, we’re not complaining though but in fact, we’re super grateful for the sales because thanks to that we can bring our mothers there this coming special day to pamper them with handbags and clothes. Sounds like a plan!

In conjunction with Mother’s Day, Design Village is also organizing a competition for all the mothers and children out there. Most lookalike mother and child will stand a chance to win a bottle of Midnight Fantasy eau de parfum. Only 3 winners will be selected, be quick!

3. Arts & Crafts Night Market under the stars at Cubopark.


Does your mum enjoy looking and shopping for arts and craft items? Then, the perfect Mother’s Day gift would be to bring her to Cubopark to enjoy their Mother’s Day Special Arts & Crafts under the stars. It would be a lovely evening filled with speciality hand-crafted gifts for your mum, where all gifts are handmade with love. You’ll never know maybe the perfect gift this Mother’s Day lies within the night market!

Nothing else can be more relaxing and enjoyable for your mum than a one-night stay in a luxurious hotel that is full of extravagant and satisfying facilities from swimming pools to massages. We totally want you to go all out during this Mother’s Day! The money you’ll be spending on this is nothing compared to the smile you’ll be seeing on your mum’s face.

A pretty cafe with mouth-watering food will make anyone fall in love, even your mum. Penang has been blooming in its cafe scene since long ago and today there are so many beautifully themed cafes made available for your enjoyment. We personally think that Kafka would be the perfect cafe because of its unique menu and cosy ambience!

7. Sing your night away at the karaoke.


If your mum is a big fan of music shows, this is definitely the place to be with your mum. No doubt your mum has got a few songs up their sleeves they always hum and sing in the car. It’s time to discover what’s your mum’s favourite song and have a blast singing the night away. Hit those dance moves and sing your lungs away! We heard that Red Box has a crazy awesome promotion as well, check it out below!

If you’re thinking of bringing your mum for a dinner full of splendour and luxuriousness, then gēn 根 should be on top of your list! Their dishes are a deep dive into the nuances of Malaysian flavours and cultures, so you don’t have to worry about the dinner upsetting your mum’s taste buds (we all know some moms in our lives that only live and breathe for Malaysian food). The whole experience would make an unforgettable Mother’s Day!

We know the ultimate checkmate for every mom’s heart, as ridiculous as celebrating Mother’s Day in IKEA sounds, we’re pretty sure your mum will appreciate it! Instead of just bringing her there, you can also buy her furniture from IKEA (if that’s within your budget) for home improvement. We believe every mom enjoys playing a bit of interior designing for the house. Trust me!

12. Chill at Georgetown Wines for the best wine experience.
