Mother’s Day is a time of year for us all to express our appreciation for the ones who birth, raise and love us regardless. It is a modern celebration honouring one’s own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence and importance of mothers in society.
At Aqua Expeditions we like to celebrate this important holiday with a home-cooked meal and show our gratitude to our mothers with a bunch of flowers and a home-made card. With this special day being celebrated around the world this month, we have asked our team to share with us some personal thoughts on what motherhood means to them.
Aqua Expeditions – Singapore
Birgit Galli Zugaro, Director
I feel truly blessed to be the mother of three wonderful children. Every day they bring me happiness and pride. I enjoy their company and want to spend as much time as I can with them. I love to see them grow, and feel proud of the people they are becoming.
Amparo Darocas, Controller
On Mother’s Day, and every day, I feel blessed with the gift of my children. They make my life happy and complete!
Nurashikin Abu Bakar, Office Manager/ PA to CEO
The best thing about being a mother is to allowing my children to do things for themselves, to be strong, to experience life on their own terms and to have their say… I understand them, love them, care for them and encourage them to believe in themselves, so that they can become the very best person they can be.
Bhavana Fernandes, Chief Accountant
Being a mother is the best feeling in the world. The best things are the feeling of unconditional love, seeing my daughter grow, morning hugs, quiet talks, and seeing big gains in small sacrifices.
Sheetal Kashid, Accountant
Being a mother is the best thing in my life. I would like to teach my kids how to be happy, to enjoy life, and to overcome any problem.
Aqua Expeditions – Peru
Milly Alva Haimberger, Director of Sales and Marketing
Being a mother is definitely the best and most rewarding job in the world, although it sounds cliché. Seeing them grow up, healthy and happy, is the best gift a mother can receive. Every smile, every occurrence, each new experience, each new thing learnt… these are inexplicable feelings of emotion.
Ana María Cardenas, HR Assistant
Being a mother is a blessing, and I am very happy to see my son’s smile every day.
Lexi Crossetti, Food & Beverages Assistant
Being a mother is the most beautiful thing that life has given me, something its gives me every day that I spend with my little Gabriel Alessandro, sharing his antics, his teachings, his joys. Being a mother is everything to me!
Christina Navarro, Receptionist
Being a mother is the most wonderful experience and the most precious gift that God has given me. Nothing compares to the great happiness that I felt when I first held Sophia in my arms. It is an extraordinary responsibility that will be with me for the rest of my life.
Aqua Expeditions – Cambodia and Vietnam
Kim Loan Le, Country Manager Cambodia & Vietnam
Being a mother is a never-ending relationship of caring, developing, supporting, and protecting your child. You are passing on your life values as well as your genes.
Mey Thy, Aqua Mekong Massage Therapist
I was nervous about being a mother at first, but when my daughter was born, it was love at first sight!
So Ath, Aqua Mekong Massage Therapist
It takes a lot of energy and money to raise a teenager!
Im Chantrea, Aqua Mekong Waitress
Being a mother really means a lot to me! It is hard to be away from my two beautiful daughters, but every time I go home and see them again they fill my heart and give me strength to do anything I want to!
