While we’re used to seeing celebrities in all their glammed-up glory, things are decidedly a lot less glitzier when it comes to motherhood. And when you get down to it, the only glitter you’ll get are the leftover bits from your toddler’s latest art project. Nobody’s been more privy to that than celebrity mum and actress Joanne Peh, who’s recently taken a break from the limelight to focus on motherhood. Now that her kids are older, she’s finally earned the right to sneak in a bit more me-time –all thanks to LG TWINWash.
Here, she speaks to us about how she juggles motherhood, work, and me-time all at once.
Celebrity super mum of two, actress and entrepreneur Joanne Peh knows all about multi-tasking. Find out how she makes it all work with the help of LG TWINWash!

Break down your typical day for us. What would you consider the best part of your day?
My days are different – there’s no such thing as a typical day because of all the roles I play. I go out to work in the day and this could be anything from filming, meeting my teachers, working out, and visiting the library – or sometimes I’ll just stay home and do all these things. I may take my kids to school on some days or run errands with or without them. Sometimes, I’ll take them on field trips or walks. If my husband is around, we have dinner with friends or sneak in a date night. My favorite part of the day? The end of the day!
How has motherhood changed your lifestyle?
Before I became a mother, I didn’t know that I had to learn how to balance both career and family. It’s something that I didn’t think about until I was actually doing it. Now, I have less time to daydream. All the decisions I make – whether its about food, things to buy, places to go – involve children. If not my children, then other people. Life is very different.
You sound like a very busy person and we hear you’re now a mum of two! Did your schedule become more hectic?
Being a mum of two requires even more commitment! You have to learn how to read two separate cues, deal with two temper tantrums, mediate between siblings, keep up with the separate developmental stages and emotional sensitivities of both children. I also need to make sure that I’m giving them both enough attention.
What would you consider to be the most important tool for a busy mum?
A good, efficient washing machine! Laundry is the last thing we should be stressing over but it’s also one of those things that piles up quickly if we keep putting it off. LG TWINWash lets us wash two separate loads of clothing in under an hour – perfect for a mum on-the-go like me!
Lastly, do you have any advice for mums wanting to find their own identities again after embracing motherhood full-time?
You need to find your passion and just do it! I know what makes me happy and that is feeding off positive energy, which inspires and energises me. I think it’s important for mums to set aside time to pursue their passions and interests, even if it’s just to take up a hobby or workout.
There’s no doubt that parenting is a tough job. And thanks to LG, we’ve found a way to lighten our load (literally and figuratively) and get our rightfully earned me-time! The amazing LG TWINWash features the super cool LG TWINWash Mini that lets us wash our delicates and regular load at the same time, finish two loads of laundry in just 49 minutes and reduces 99% of allergens. Another cool bonus? You can operate and monitor the laundry with WiFi too!
