Hello from HoneyKids! Based in sunny Singapore, we’re a parenting and lifestyle platform, as well as a video content and events production house. We’re the fun and feisty little sister to The Honeycombers (which was founded by Chris Edwards in 2008), but with just as big a personality. Yes, our company has been around for over a decade (we’re looking pretty good for our age, right?) and has expanded to Hong Kong and Bali, too. A pretty impressive family to be a part of, we reckon.
And we love our jobs. We take special pride in what we do and only write about things we, as parents, believe in. We’re constantly working to bring you the latest and greatest things to do with kids around town, as well as ideas for sanity-saving holidays, fam-friendly restaurants and how to choose the right school. In a nutshell, we’re here to make your life easier, so you can focus on the most important thing: your family.
Speaking of family, we’re a team of different colours, shapes and sizes – and that’s the way we like it. Discrimination is a huge no-no: we don’t endorse it in any form.
Yes, we have advertising on the site, but the difference between editorial and advertorial content will always be made clear. And, like we said, we don’t write about things we wouldn’t endorse ourselves (that includes our work for clients).
Lastly, we’re real people just like you – we’re working mums, both local and expat. We juggle deadlines with school drop-offs, meetings with morning sickness, and time management with toddler (and teen) tantrums. We are known to suffer from hangovers and parenting fails. But the one thing we all have in common is we love where we live, and we love sharing it with you.
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.
Amy Potter, Editor
Amy is a mum to two tiny terrors, meaning she is a professional multitasker and an expert in all things one-handed. She moved to Singapore earlier this year, where she has since developed an addiction for curry puffs (although, like any Brit, she still thinks a good cup of tea can solve most problems). She spends her spare time devouring books, crafting and hunting down the best toddler-friendly brunch.
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 six years and she’s very proud that she knows how to order her favourite local coffee in Hokkien.
Shaneli Chandiramani, Content Writer
Shaneli is a recent transplant to the little red dot. She spends a lot of time gawking at pretty shoes, getting her nails done and drinking coffee. One day, she will be writing her novel in a cottage by a lake, a la Colin Firth in Love Actually.
