Parenthood is awesome – if you have great kid-wrangling tips, know where to go for fun in your city, and the best spots for family feasts and sanity-saving holidays. That’s why we created HoneyKids: we believe being a mum or dad can be even more awesome with the right inside scoop. We inspire our readers to get the most out of the good times with little ones in tow, and help with some of the challenging times, too (like how on earth do you choose a school in Singapore?).
So, who are we?
Chris Edwards, Founder
A true multi-tasking mumpreneur, Chris juggles deadlines, toddlers and her packed schedule with talent only found here and at the circus. (Potentially the next career move?) She started Honeycombers as a one-woman band, and has since had three littlies, bringing a new talent to her portfolio – tracking down the coolest kids’ stuff in town.
Hamish McDougall, Managing Director
Hamish has worked in media and marketing in Sydney, London and Singapore, starting in advertising and editorial before moving to the dark side (sales and business development). His experience runs the gamut from pre- and post-launch startups through to MNC media organisations, and most recently he was MD, APAC of airline media publisher Ink. Hamish joined Honeycombers as managing director – but secretly wants to be the food & wine editor (man, that’s one helluva job). With a passion for both content and commercial, he’s happy to sit in the middle and take all the credit for both.
Tracy Tristram, Editor
Tracy is a Brit mum to a grumpy teen, a sensitive tween and a very loud preschooler. She is perpetually tired, but is an excellent referee. Singapore has been her tropical home for the last 10 years and she has a large soft spot for sunshine, popiah, rollercoasters, reflexology and Hua Yu Wee (in no particular order).
Sheralyn Loh, Lifestyle Writer
Sheralyn likes finding new music, sending friends cool postcards and window shopping. She tries to be the fun aunt to her toddler niece but has way too much fun teasing her instead. She’s currently trying to learn Japanese, how to play the ukulele and walk in six inch heels – at the same time.
Jana Blanco, Creative Services Writer
Jana is a mum to a very energetic toddler and small new baby boy. She hoards children’s books and sunglasses, and is a sucker for anything bright and shiny. When she isn’t writing, she’s always experimenting in the kitchen or looking for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe. Singapore has been home for the past five years and she’s very proud that she knows how to order her favourite local coffee in Hokkien.
Kate Dimarco, Lifestyle Writer
Kate is an ex-technology marketer who has spent the last five years in Singapore learning everything there is to know about how to do good mum-ing. With three kids in tow, she’s traversed the island in search of great coffee (and maybe sometimes wine), fun friends and anything that will keep the kids entertained. Current crushes include roti prata, Singapore radio and fighter jet spotting.
Kate Reynolds, Senior Accounts Director
Kate is a mum to two busy and bossy kiddos. She’s a yank who has been in Asia for the last decade and has no plans for leaving any time soon! She loves being part of the HoneyKids team and helping to connect HoneyKids’ partners and readers to share all the amazing things Singapore has to offer.
