For a woman of such porcelain-like beauty and a rosy glow to boot, Diani Lee is anything but a lady of leisure. The youngest of the Lee sisters dubs her role as mother to 2 sons, “the most underrated and underpaid job there is.” Up until the arrival of her firstborn, Diani served as the general manager of corporate communications for her family’s Country Heights Group of Companies. But Diani was destined to be a mum from the start, a role she dove in with zeal.
“You are responsible to bring up little ones who hopefully one day become functional and contributing individuals in our society – it is a lifetime commitment,” described Diani. She and her husband Law Wai Cheong are expecting a third child, and on an afternoon with her, Diani weaved in and out effortlessly of her boys' schedules while offering nuggets on motherhood and her newest beauty discovery, the Lancôme Absolue Soft Cream.
Besides being a mum, what else are you working on?
I just completed my first children’s book, ‘A to Z Grandpa & Me’ which hits MPH bookstores in December and looking at a second book already. We’re busy with moving house early in 2019, and I’m also working on building an orphanage in Semenyih that I raised funds for.
What is a typical routine like for you?
A slow morning with breakfast and coffee, before the kids go off to kindergarten for 4 hours. I use that time to do check off my to-do list. I try not to engage more than 3 external meetings a day as I like to spend time with the kids.
