Having to have the kid(s) surrounds me, driving them around for their activities, preparing breakfast / lunch / dinner, hugs and kisses husband and son before they off to work / school at the house door, then quickly rush to boil the water, picking up the clothes on the floor and wash the clothes, ironing, swiping off the dust, waking up before them and sleeping after them (with endless house chores).. It sounds so perfect, easy to do but
YES, difficult to achieve.
As a career woman, it is not easy to juggle between family and career. Of cos the best thing that you can gain at the end of the day is to see their smiles. Yes, we do feel exhausted but it's all worth it, what more when you do not own a maid (salute to all mothers out there)
but at times, after your hardwork, somehow i think all mothers deserve a time out..
a.k.a your own private time..
So, the question is what happens when the woman in the household disappears and the man takes over?
LIFETIME’s 1st Asian Production presents MOM’S TIME OUT - a social experiment that explores modern gender roles by doing just that. Frazzled mothers from 3 families across Asia go on an all-expenses-paid 5-day-getaway and leave their husbands in charge. Witness the men being fished out of water as they learn to take on their newfound roles and be completely surprised by the work that entails.
The First Episode premiers on 28 August 2014 on Thursday 9pm on LIFETIME Asia.
3 mothers from Singapore, Manila and Kuala Lumpur bid farewell to their families as they leave for a luxury getaway. As the social experiment begins, Singaporean father Christopher is anxious about taking their 3 sons to a fine-dining restaurant while Malaysian dad Jason attempts to cook for the first time in his life. Left with a crying toddler on his own, Filipino father Kenneth gets close to tipping point after 24 hours without a wink of sleep.
Sounds cool right..
By the way, let me introduce you to the family
From Singapore, meet the Pangs… Dad Christopher and Mom Julie run a successful boutique real-estate company and have 3 boys (12-year-old Marcus, 8-year-old Michael and 4-year-old Matthew). Christopher and Julie often quarrel about their differing parenting principles – Dad is more for corporal punishment while Mom is all about positive reinforcement. What will happen then when Mom is away?
From Malaysia, meet the Jasons... Dad Jason is a motivational speaker who is a self-confessed workaholic who totally loves his job and probably often prioritizes it above his family. Mom Leishia is a homemaker and freelance writer who cares for their two daughters (4-year-old Arianna and 2.5-year-old Olivia). Will things spiral out of control when Mom is not around?
Kenneth & Emerald, with Briah (2.5yo)
From the Philippines, meet the Baileys… Dad Kenneth and stay-at-home Mom Emerald have a 2.5-year-old daughter Briah who is adorable but can be quite a handful! With Dad being the sole breadwinner of the family working night shifts since Briah was born, he now has to take on one of the toughest challenges of his life to care for his daughter while Mom is away. Will he be able to handle it?
