Go on, remind them how much you appreciate them by saying, "I love you".

Here are the judges' choice of winners for Top Mum Awards 2016:


1st prize: My mother would punish me by putting wasabi in my mouth -- then cry with me and apologise after that

21-year-old Ivan shared with us a heartwarming write-up of his his mother, 45-year-old Jacqueline Lim, played a critical role in his life.

He wrote:

"Whenever I lied or was mischievous, she would punish me in her own unique ways. From putting wasabi in my mouth to hitting me with a cane, she was diverse in her ideas. After these punishments, she would always cry together with me, apologising and asking if I was okay. It was these experiences that inculcated in me the values of honesty,love and compassion."

His entry wins $250 worth of Takshimaya vouchers + $200 worth of Kinokuniya vouchers.

Janicia says that she felt that her 'pai-kia' friends protected her more then her mother, but soon realised just how hard her mum was working to keep her happy.

"I ignored her because I thought they were the ones who protect me and so called "loved me". As the days went by, I became more naughty," she said.

Her entry wins $50 worth of Takshimaya vouchers + $40 worth of Kinokuniya vouchers.
