Sonia Sui battles jet lag as son stays wide awake

Actress asks fans for help via social media


Taiwanese actress–model Sonia Sui, 35, took to Facebook to ask her fans for help when her son, Max, stayed wide awake after a 10-hour flight to Los Angeles.

Sonia left for California on Saturday. While her family arrived exhausted, Max was alert — at 5 a.m. local time.

“The silly boy is jet-lagging,” she wrote. “Before we left many people had warned me about this and gave me tips on how to pull through a 10-hour flight, but I didn’t realise the difficult stage was ahead of us. Help!”

Fans sent in a string of suggestions, from letting the 9-month-old play until he was tired out to hypnotising him by drawing a piece of tissue paper over his face repeatedly. Others proposed that Sonia take more photos of him to post on Facebook.

Sonia married Tony Chia last January and gave birth to Max last August.
