My Weekend: Tjin Lee

My Weekend: Tjin Lee
Tjin Lee, from Mercury Marketing.

Tjin Lee, 40, is the founder and managing director of Mercury Marketing & Communications. She is married to John Lim, 33, an operations manager at a commodities firm, and they have a one-year-old son Tyler.

"I try not to let work spill over to the weekend because that is the only time I can spend quality time with my friends and family, especially my son.

My weekend usually begins with dinner in the company of friends on Fridays. I don't take Tyler out, my mother helps to take care of him. Sometimes, my mother-in-law pops by too.

My friends and I have been wanting to check out a new restaurant called Lucha Loco at Duxton Hill. After that, we will probably go for drinks at 1-Altitude on top of One Raffles Place, the highest building in Singapore.

I'm also thinking of taking my friends over to another bar, Antidote, at Fairmont Hotel. It's my new favourite place to hang out because it serves really good tapas. I go to sleep at about 2 or 3am. I don't need a lot of sleep.

Saturday is Tyler's day. I take him to Gardens by the Bay almost every weekend because there is an excellent children's playground that is free. It has separate play areas for children below and above five years old.

I really like that they have something catered for toddlers because the older kids and younger ones don't get along sometimes - they might manhandle one another. The best time to go there is early in the morning, when it's not too hot and crowded. Then, we'll have brunch at Cafe Crema, which serves artisanal coffee.
