In celebration of Thai Mother’s Day, Thailand Tatler’s digital and editorial staff muse on the best advice our mums have given us


Matt Wilde, Features Editor

My mother once advised me to move out of England and choose a place where she would love to shop regularly. Hence where I am now. 

Alisa Mekmanee, Deputy Editor

My mum would make sure to tell me everyday to have a great day, as well as tell to me to go after my passions—always. These are things I tell my own children now.

Naphalai Areesorn, Editor-In-Chief

Too many to remember! Let's just say that who I am today is a result of every bit of advice that she ever gave me.

Mika Apichatsakol, Digital Editor

The best life lesson I’ve received from my mother is that sometimes it’s healthy to not be so capable.

Patraporn Peekawitsanuporn, Digital Content and Strategy Manager

My mother shared with me a quote from Alfred Lord Tennyson: 'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”

Kittipat Sooksee, Graphic Designer

“If you are patient enough, you will find good things.”

Prijayanat Kalampasut, Lifestyle Writer

Growing up, she was always telling me to read and re-read everything I write and to never come across a word I don’t know and not look it up. Oh, and stand up straight!

Nicharee Phatitit, Lifestyle Writer

“Take your time to learn about the people you meet—it takes time for their character to show through and to learn who they really are.”

Mary Losmithgul, Digital Writer

“If there isn’t a way out, make one. Always stay positive—if I thought as negatively as you I would never have made it to where I am today.”

Shirley Losmithgul, Digital Intern

“Always listen to your mum.”
