Then there's Tay Ying's heartwarming and emotional Instagram caption.
In case you can’t see it, here’s the full caption:
"To those who don’t really know my mum,
She has never pressured me to excel academically, but always reminded me to work hard to get what I want.
She gives me all the freedom I need to explore, but always assured that I will always have a home to come back to.
She taught me how to be strong and independent, and to guard my heart but never close it.
She taught me how to love and care for others bravely, and I always get inspired whenever I see her connecting with our family and friends.
She is a brilliant actress, and I hope to even be half as brilliant as her.
and she still looks hella fine.
Blessed birthday mummy! May you stay healthy always. Thank you for working hard all these years, it’s time for you to rest and enjoy.
And thank you to these people for making this shoot possible (sic)”
