How often do you express your affection towards your mum?
As Mother’s Day is just round the corner — 10 May, to be exact — Jurong Point shopping mall has uploaded a video on Youtube, in which shoppers were approached to take part in a campaign to say “I love you” to their mums.
The video, which was uploaded on 5 May, has gotten over 4,000 views on Youtube, and has been shared over 4,000 times on Facebook.
Participants from young kids to working adults made a surprise call to their mothers, to say the “words they’ve wanted to say, but never did".
It seems that expressing our affection is not a very common practice in Singapore, as some participants can be seen struggling to say the three simple words packed with meaning.
A teenager thanked her mother for “taking care of me", and began tearing up.
Other participants thanked their mothers for the effort they’ve put into taking care of them, such as a little girl who said, “Happy Mother’s Day, thank you for your nice spaghetti.”
