For the Prim & Proper Mum: Afternoon Tea at the House on Sathorn
For our first prize, we’re giving away one Heritage Afternoon Tea experience for two at the beautiful House on Sathorn. The bright yellow 130-year-old landmark serves up an afternoon tea fit for your queen, though ‘tea’ here feels almost a bit like an understatement. The incredibly impressive menu features everything from salmon tartare with ikura, hoisin roasted duck bun, and soft shell crab kimichi slaw, over to a Macau egg tart, orange chocolate madeleines, and vanilla green tea chiffon cake, to name just a few. Of course, no afternoon tea is complete without scones and Devonshire clotted cream, and two pots of TWG tea are included too. Stylish, scrumptious, and — for the social media savvy Mum — very ‘grammable, as well.
Prize Details: A voucher for the Heritage Afternoon Tea for two at the House on Sathorn.
The House on Sathorn, 106 North Sathorn Rd., Bang Rak, Bangkok, +66 2 344 4025; The Heritage Afternoon Tea is served daily from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.
For the Mum who likes Mimosas: Brunch at OCKEN
Between an up-beat, feel-good soundtrack and a buzzing ambience, OCKEN has long been one of our favourite Sathorn brunch spots. With a menu that changes periodically, it’s always exciting to head on over to the open-plan-kitchen restaurant and get your taste buds exploring.
Recently launching a select few new items to their current brunch menu, expect everything from a crispy chicken katsu and grilled harissa marinated prawns, over to oven-roasted sticky cinnamon buns and Chitarra red pesto. If you’re looking to indulge, definitely also order the OcMuffin – a playful (and far more delicious) take on the classic McMuffin. Seeing as it is brunch, don’t forget to explore the vibrant drinks list: think, Pomelo Margaritas, an Un-Bloody Mary (a personal favourite), or a classic Bellini. For mums who are more caffeine than cocktails, there’s bottomless coffee from Roots, too. Win-win.
Prize Details: A THB 2000 voucher for brunch (also applicable for dinner) at OCKEN.
OCKEN, 1/F, Bhiraj Tower at Sathorn, South Sathorn Rd., Bangkok, +668 209 161 74; Open for brunch Sat-Sun 10.30am-2.3opm, and for dinner Mon-Sun 6pm-12am.
For the Boss Mum: Lunch at The Okura Prestige
We couldn’t have said it better than Chef Jachnarong Pattharanatorn: “Buffet lunches are an integral part of Bangkok life.”
The chef at the infamous Up & Above Restaurant on the 24th floor of The Okura Prestige surely knows what he’s talking about, and this August, is inviting winners of our Mother’s Day giveaway to enjoy a fine luncheon at the sky-high venue. A great spot for those who live or work in the city centre, and love a lunch more lavish than your regular business lunch, the weekday buffet at Up & Above provides much to swoon for. One of the freshest and most lucrative bites about town, expect both Thai and international dishes in a varied and carefully selected buffet set-up. A few showstoppers? The grilled oysters with dashi butter and grilled cheese, the grilled scallops on the shell with miso, roasted whole seabass, and New Zealand lamb shank. Sad desk lunch? Never more.
Prize Details: A voucher for a free weekday buffet lunch at Up & Above Restaurant for two persons.
Up & Above Restaurant, 24/F, The Okura Prestige Bangkok, Park Ventures Ecoplex, 57 Wireless Rd., Bangkok, +66 2687 9000; Up & Above is open for the buffet luncheon Mon-Fri 12pm-2.30pm.
For the Fit Mum: A Workout for Two at Tribe

Whether you’re looking to namaste your heart out in a yoga class, or spin ‘til you can’t no more in a quick cardio session, this August, Tribe can provide it all. The high-energy community-driven fitness studio is one of the snazziest boutique gyms in the city, offering a select range of fun and effective classes. Whether you opt for the signature high intensity CYCLE or complete some elegant reps in the BARRE class, it’s a great excuse to try out some new ways to work out, or further fire up the fitness fuel you love. Catering to all fitness levels, the dynamic group sessions will ensure you lose plenty of calories, and win plenty of cool points with Mum.

For the Mum who Loves Pasta and Pinot Noir: Dinner at Cantina Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen
A quick favourite since its recent opening, there are few places more cosy and comforting than Cantina Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen. The Sukhumvit neighbourhood trattoria specialises in Napolitano pizzas, as well as traditional Italian comfort food, serving up a vast array of dishes to choose from. Between rustic interiors and a warm ambience, start your evening with the textbook classic of Parma ham and sweet melon or burrata, before selecting one (or three) of your favourite fresh pizzas and handmade pastas. End the meal with some sweet spoonfuls of tiramisu and a Limoncello, and consider yourself living a true dolce vita. If you’ve always wanted to take Mum on a trip to Italy but didn’t quite book that ticket in time, this one’s your calling.
Prize Details: A THB 1000 voucher for a meal at Cantina Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen.
