The last time Tay Kewei and Alfred Sim had a couple getaway was two years ago, before their son, nicknamed Shen Momo, was born. “We really enjoyed our alone time on this trip,” the 35-year-old local songstress tells us. “But we also missed our son dearly ’cos this is the first time we’ve been away for so long since he was born.”
Now, here's the thing. You don’t have to be a parent to know that if you’re presented with a rare opportunity to travel and take a break from parenting, you make the most of it. And, boy, did the husband-and-wife duo do that on their recent Turkey jaunt, where they travelled in style on a 13-day holiday that took them to Istanbul, Bodrum, Pamukkale, Ephesus and Cappadocia. And from the looks of it, the itinerary was nothing short of amazing. It was, after all, Kewei’s first trip as Chief Luxury Officer (CLO) of Luxury Escapes, a travel company that’s all about the VIP treatment on holiday, including organising luxury small group tours, like Kewei and Alfred’s Turkey adventure. Which meant that all the off-duty parents had to do was to kick back and enjoy themselves… and Instagram up a storm, because that’s what a CLO does, okay?
