'At Home' Soon Lee x MISCHA Part II

Posted on 28 June 2017

Here is part two of our collaboration with retailer Soon Lee, where we explore the idea of where home is - as a woman, as individuals, in the different roles we take up, and what being at home with yourself means to you. Meet the remaining four of the seven inspiring women of Singapore in our collaboration.

MELISSA KOH @melissackoh
Melissa is a very busy girl. Upkeeping a thriving social media outfit takes her places and keeps her constantly away from home. The enterprising creative finds her balance by keeping a staple few philosophical thoughts close to her heart. 

WHAT IS HOME TO YOU?
Home is lying in my cosy bed and being in loving arms.

HOW ARE YOU AT HOME WITH YOURSELF?
Home isn;t really a place, but more so a feeling. I know I'm at home with myself when I am happy with myself, feeling comfortable in my own skin, and love myself for who I am.

ANY WORDS TO LIVE BY, INSPIRE SOMEONE TO ARRIVE HOME WITH THEMSELVES?
Home is where you see the good in every bad, feel the happy in every sadness. It's a place of forgiveness, a safety net and a beautiful sanctuary. 

NG YI LIAN @yilianng
Yi Lian is a wonderful burst of sunshine and energy. The Fashion Editor who's devoted most of her career to the fashion industry is now putting her touch for aesthetics on creating floral creations. We delve deep into the idea of finding the way home with her.

WHAT IS HOME TO YOU?
Home is where the people I love live. It could be my parents home, it could be my sisters home and it could be the home I live in every day with my boyfriend and his two kids. I make myself very comfortable as long as I have my loved ones around. 

WHAT WERE YOUR STRUGGLES? HOW DID YOU ARRIVE AT BEING AT HOME WITH YOURSELF?
The struggles don't end and they are always just hanging around the corner. I have my insecurities especially when it comes to my work and my business. I've been told it's a good thing because it means I have high expectations of myself and that I will continuously churn out quality work. 

Feeling completely at ease and at home with yourself takes time and life experience. It can be difficult to be completely aware of your own shortcomings and flaws but the thing is, do you want to stay this way and embrace yourself and work on yourself and embracing that person who is trying too?

ANY WORDS TO LIVE BY, INSPIRE SOMEONE TO ARRIVE HOME WITH THEMSELVES?
Always love yourself and that's a good foundation. But don't rest on your laurels and just be ok with who you are today. How do you want to become better? Not just better at your job or be a better mother/father/daughter/friend, but how do you want to become a better soul who just spreads goodness and love with your very being?

Arriving at home with oneself takes time and experiences and that is the wonderful thing about growing older. Don't resist ageing because alongside that comes with amazing lessons. 

RAE YUN @theramengirl
Good moments, trust in oneself and seeing imperfections as life's necessary rhythm. We might have uncovered the secrets to true happiness. Mother of two, found of e-boutique Oh Happy Fry talks about how she balances life as a creative and mummy.

WHAT IS HOME TO YOU?
Home is definitely where I am right now, today.

WHAT WERE YOUR STRUGGLES? HOW DID YOU ARRIVE AT BEING AT HOME WITH YOURSELF?
It took me a while to find a balance between caring for my kids and focusing on myself. But I've made it a priority to put myself first - I realised only when my needs are met can I effectively care for my family. My work is my creative outlet when I'm not in my mommy-mode; it's where I can learn about things I love and try out new things. It really helps me maintain my 'sanity'.

DALILLAH ISMAIL @dalillahismail
A radiant confidence shines through in Dalillah's styling. Bold, uninhibited and statement. You would think the well-loved personality has it all figured out, the style maven opens up about how she genuinely found home in the chaos that is life. 

WHAT IS HOME TO YOU?
A safe place, a sanctuary of peace and comfort.

HOW ARE YOU AT HOME WITH YOURSELF?
As a frequent traveller and being always on the move, I'm hardly in a physical home. Because of this, I find myself constantly redefining the understanding and meaning of what home is. 

Home to me is wherever I am and how I am at one with myself. A sense of peace, serenity and comfort within me everywhere I go.
