The word "auntie" can be a respectful form of addressing a middle-aged woman in Singapore. ?The older and married women are generally addressed as ìauntiesî. The word is especially sensitive to young women and depicts negative connotations.
The series derives from? frustration and agony of being called an ìauntieî at young age. In an attempt to explore the various character traits of a typical Singaporean auntie, the artist hopes for viewers to see these heartland aunties in a different light.
