“Wife guilt” is something that is often felt amongst modern women in our society. By that, we mean that there are a lot of women who feel that they cannot balance both their familial and career commitments.

Even some of the top stars in Singapore have opened up about the difficulties juggling both the demands of motherhood and their careers.

Case in point: When asked if she would rather be the actress that she is or be a stay-at-home mum assuming she could pick up her career again, veteran Singaporean actress Zoe Tay conceded that it is a “very tough choice for her to make.”

“(I would rather) be the actress that I am now. At the same time, I’ve also always dreamt of being a stay-at-home mum to take care of my kids. For now, working is still better.

It can get a little stressful staying at home, facing the children (*laughs*),” shared the “You Can Be An Angel” star who is married to air force pilot Philip Chionh. They have three sons together – 14-year-old Brayden, 11-year-old Ashton and eight-year-old Nathan.

When she’s not busy filming, she does everyday tasks like take her sons to tuition classes, cook, and spend quality time with her loved ones and yoga.

When she does go behind the cameras, the actress who has an upcoming Chinese drama in the New Year, “All is well” relishes her work.

In a New Year greeting that Zoe posted on Instagram, she told her followers that the New Year brings: “An opportunity to do the things (you’ve always wanted to do). Perhaps you have put off your dreams. But now is a time for them to be realised.”

We are not certain if Zoe is referring to her unfulfilled dream of becoming a stay-at-home mum but we are certainly not ready to part with the reigning Queen of Caldecott Hill.
