We speak to Amanda Leong, Miss ASEAN 2013 on how she juggles her responsibilities towards her toddler, her three month old baby and her four furkids.
From the conception of her first pregnancy, Amanda’s cats sensed and understood that there was going to be an addition to her family. “Animals are amazing like that! My two dogs, however, were slightly slower in understanding the new addition, but were equally enthusiastic once they met them.” The animal lover has now seamlessly integrated the lives of both her children and furkids, and it seems that the bond between them has gotten stronger as the days go by as well. “There hasn’t been any animosity at all and they all look out for one another. When my son goes swimming with us, our dog won’t leave his side!” shares Amanda.
