Motherhood redefined, this Weekend


IT'S Mother's Day weekend and if you're a harried professional woman still trying desperately to live up to the Supermom ideal, it's time to stop. "Mothers are pressured to be perfect mothers and raise perfect kids," says entrepreneur Ann Kositchotitana. "But they need to retain their identities and know that they're not just mothers, that they can pursue passions outside of their parental role."

In Friday's Weekend magazine, Ms Kositchotitana and fellow high-achieving mums dispel the Supermom myth and show how they find creative and entrepreneurial inspiration in their families.

From motherhood, we go to hard-hitting comedy as Weekend Interview spotlights Korean-American stand up comic Margaret Cho, who's set to burn local audience's ears with her brand of confrontational humour that tackles everything from politics to sexual abuse.

Meanwhile, we head to Cho's motherland to explore the dining scene in Seoul, where there's much more to Korean cuisine than kimchi and beef bulgogi. On the menu are fine dining surprises and the joys of prime Korean beef that could well be the next craze after wagyu.
