Channel 8 actress Lina Ng, who was a television host and actress most active in the 1990s and early 2000s, is less regularly seen on television screens these days. The 43-year-old is busy playing mum to her three sons, aged between six and 13. When she left MediaCorp for MediaWorks, which closed in 2003, show business then took a backseat and parenting become a full-time job.
Today, Lina continues to take on some acting projects: she stars in Channel 5 drama Lion Mums 2, which premieres on Aug 9 at 9.30pm. She also runs Mustard Seeds Academy, which provides Chinese enrichment classes to childcare centres.
Here’s how Lina feels about parenting three boys, disciplining them, and playing a mum in her first English drama.
