The Covid-19 pandemic has brought much of showbiz to a standstill. Not only have many events been cancelled, productions and shoots have also been postponed, leaving those in the creative field with lots of free time on their hands. While some took the opportunity to slow down and recharge, Code of Law actress Michelle Wong decided to get creative and spread a little love and good vibes.
Marrying her love for baking and motivational quotes, the 28-year-old created Reminder Cookies, a passion project to “spread positive messages to the community in these anxious times”.
“When the Dorscon level was raised to Orange last month, I stayed at home a lot more so I thought let me do something meaningful and the idea [for the motivational cookies] was born,” she tells 8days.sg. “At that point in time, there was an immense appreciation on my part for the healthcare workers and frontliners like the cleaners who sanitise the door knobs and lift buttons, people who are working in the quiet that you don’t see, so I came up with the ‘Kindness is Contagious’ message to thank our unsung heroes. I don't know any frontliners personally, so I took a photo of the cookie [and posted it on Instagram]. I hope the message was able to be sent out in that manner."
