Tee wanted to wear my bra. When I told her it was way too big for her, she insisted she still wanted it. So I opened my bra drawer and picked out a very, very old pre-pregnancy bra; tightened the straps and put it on my less than 2 year old daughter and tied a knot behind. She hurriedly posed for the mirror and said “Sexy!” Smiling…“Sexy…Pretty!”. I have never mentioned in her presence that wearing a bra was sexy or pretty so I have no idea where she picked that one up. Unless she thinks wearing anything is sexy….
Formula 1 Race Car
One day when my husband and I were busy with the household chores in separate rooms, we heard this squelch. It was the irritatingly loud screech/shriek that sounded like Michael Schumacher flooring his accelerator, yet it was coming from my own baby. My husband and I simultaneously ran out in search of what the matter was, thinking that a scream of such caliber needed help. There lying flat on her tummy with hands and legs stretched out on the floor, she screamed that ear-piercing cry of help again. “What’s wrong, Tee?” we asked frantically worried. She did it again. Half wondering if she had suddenly gone crazy, I saw the Petronas ad on TV with a little boy in exactly her same position and there went the F1 race car on TV. She was imitating the car screech….
I was researching the Volvo website when my little ‘kepoh’ (busybody) sat in front of me like an excited bunny. “Mummy buy….Mummy buy Vovo car.” I told her that Mummy has no money to buy a Volvo car, then suggested she asked her grandfather to buy one instead (cheeky Mummy). She turned around to retort, “No. Mummy ask…Mummy ask”. Tee and I have been fantasising of owning the new Volvo XC90 so if anyone would like to donate one, we’d be forever grateful.
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
