It all started several years ago when Dr Wong Mei Mei, 38, and her family returned to Malaysia from London, England, where she had been working as a scientist with the Imperial College London for 16 years.

“When we came back to Malaysia, I was still employed by the college, and I had to juggle working at home, mostly at odd hours due to the time difference, and having to care for my young children at the same time,” says Wong, who lives in Shah Alam with her husband, and their two children, aged six and three.
