Schools in, claws out! There’s a new mum in town, and things just got a little bit more complicated! Lina Ng joins the cast of Lion Mums 2 as Chae Lian, the ultimate super mum who will never back down till she’s ahead of the competition.
“LION MUMS SEASON TWO” is a cosmo-drama series that centers around the lives of four quintessential Singaporean mothers, Jennifer Tan (played by TVB actress Bernice Liu), Durrani Mazlan (played by Nurul Aini), Chae Lian (played by Lina Ng) and Ho Min Yi (played by Vanessa Vanderstraaten). In Season One, our Lion Mums had to navigate the minefield of primary school admission, amidst challenging personal life circumstances. Season Two finds our intrepid Lion Mums confronting the challenge of Singapore’s highly competitive education head-on as their offspring begin their first year of primary education at the fictional elite school, Charleston Primary. The show will explore hot button and highly relatable topics that seem to have been ripped from the headlines. Our Lion Mums will have to deal with Enrichment Programs, gaming the Direct Schools Admission system, homework tutors, elitism in the education system, bullying and of course, the perennial pressures of competitive parenting. All this unfolds amidst their own personal challenges - Jennifer finds herself going back to work as her husband is bankrupted, Durrani starts her own business after leaving her comfortable law firm job and Min Yi must confront discrimination at the workplace that stems from her lack of a degree. Upping the ante is Chae Lian, the ultimate super mum of the poster boy & girl of Charleston Primary, who is the know-it-all and game-it-all of our local educational system.
