After becoming a mother, Kim Lim says she has started doing charity work for kids.

Recently, she took more than 100 underprivileged children to The Great Moscow Circus, hoping to bring more smiles into their lives. She also went to Mongolia before the arrival of winter to deliver gers (Mongolian yurts) to homeless children there, hoping to provide some shelter from the cold.

She says: “With a grandmother, father, husband and son who love me, everything is perfect. I don’t really need anything else.”

As we travelled to different European cities for the photoshoot with Kim Lim, she took on the role of a big sister, always giving suggestions of the best places to eat.

This is why, when we were in London, we ended up in the city’s hottest restaurant, Novikov, as well as her family’s favourite, Orient London. And in Manchester, she made reservations at Menagerie, a restaurant popular with the city’s footballers, well before our plane touched down.

Lim says her father is the one who taught her to be hospitable and gracious. “As a child, whenever I went out with my dad and his friends, I would see that he treats them with so much sincere hospitality. I think sharing things that I like with my friends is so much more fun than enjoying these things on my own.”

On Friends And Social Media

Of course, she is aware that there are those who befriend her only for networking purposes or even to take advantage of her.

But she says: “If I am being taken advantage of, to a certain extent, I really do not mind.” She insists there is no need to be calculative over many little things in life.
