Michelle Reis Wants Son to Go to Boarding School

Michelle Reis (李嘉欣) attended the recording of a cooking show hosted by Justin Lo (側田) and Jade Leung (梁家玉), the wife of musician Mark Lui (雷頌德). Michelle, who has one 4-year-old son Jayden Max (“Little JM”), said she seldom meat 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 (許晉亨) 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 one 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.

  1. Kids can learn to be independent without being shipped to a boarding school. It depends on how they’re taught at home. They don’t need to be away from mom & dad to learn how to make their bed, take out trash, time management, care for their own boo-boo, etc. . It’s way too young to be sending them off at primary (assuming that’s elementary equivalent). That’s when they should be bonding and needing parents the most. It’s lazy (IMHO) on the parents to just shoo their children away and depend on the institute to teach their kids. Majority of US kids don’t leave home until they’re in college and they do/end up fine.

    1. @jjwong Totally agree with you. I don’t think it is a good idea to send kids (under 16) to a boarding school. The only excuses are: 1) You don’t want to spend time to train and teach your kids, 2) You are loaded with money and want to show off. You want to send your kids to a super expensive private boarding school.

  2. Only 5 and she wants to send him away to boarding school in a few years. That’s not the way to build up a bond. She should not even have kids in the first place.
