"The most important thing on Mother's Day is to be good and listen to your mum. Every day should be Mother's Day," said 16-year-old Amy Wong Tsz-ching, who woke up extra early yesterday morning to visit a Chinese restaurant for yum cha with her mother and grandma.

Try these guides before reading the riot act

For Mother's Day, I had originally planned to share some of my favourite mummy-baby storybooks, such as Deborah Guarino's Is Your Mama a Llama? and Amy Hest's Kiss Good Night.

Then my mind wandered to last Mother's Day. Around that time, my elder daughter turned from a sweet, easy-going toddler into a difficult malcontent.

There's nothing uniform about bags

School bags are closely connected to a time when uniformity was everything. Today, many schools elsewhere have abandoned the idea of standard school bags, and some have even let go of uniforms.

It's a shame that is not the case in Hong Kong, particularly at my school, where the rules on bags become more strict every term.

Beauties plug a whirl for mum on an ice rink as a way to say thank you on Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just three days away so it's time to rustle up some gift ideas, trying to avoid the usual bouquet of flowers or spa vouchers.

How about taking your mum for a whirl on an ice rink? Kowloon Tong's Festival Walk mall has come up with the idea of so-called IceRobics to make even its ice rink promotion relevant to Mother's Day.

I love mom

Dear Mom

You are by far the most amazing mum anyone could ever hope to have! Thanks for always being there for us when we've needed you. You are the sunshine in our lives, keep shining bright!

Lots of love, Ayra and Azaara

Mum's the word

I recently listened to a song called Dear Mom, by a Korean group. I found the melody very pleasant to listen to, so I looked up the Chinese lyrics.
