Michelle Reis attended the recording of a cooking show hosted by Justin Lo and Jade Leung, the wife of musician Mark Lui. Michelle, who has one 4-year-old son Jayden Max (“Little JM”), said she seldom cooks at home as she gets quite nauseous while handling things with blood. Instead, Michelle cooks more dessert and sweets, such as cupcakes.
The 45-year-old shared that she once cooked a dessert buffet for her family, but her husband Julian Hui does not like sweets. She sighed, expressing that it was a waste of her effort.
When speaking about the food that Little JM likes, Michelle praised her son for being easy to take care of. “His tastes are really simple. He can still be very happy eating only fish and vegetables.”
The mother and son recently spent some time cooking pizza and chocolate cake together. Asking if Julian also participated in the family fun, Michelle said, “He said he’s a good cook, but he’s never cooked since we got married. So, it’s just a myth for now. Hopefully we’ll have the time to cook together in the future. Each of us can be responsible for once dish.”
Little JM will be turning five years old in February. Michelle said she wants to send her son to boarding school in a few years, hoping that Little JM would learn how to be independent.
She explained, “Boys need to learn how to live in a dorm. It’s hard to give children that kind of environment here in Hong Kong. If the opportunity comes, I want to put him in a boarding school when he become a senior at his primary school. That way, not only can he meet new friends, he can also learn to how to be truly independent.”
Michelle added that she would probably cry for an entire month if she does send her son to a boarding school, but it is something that must be considered.
