My playboy grandfather was from Teluk Intan (Teluk Anson then). He used to live in a big, black mansion but after he died, the mansion housed his many sisters, most of whom were unmarried. Spooky huh? The mansion sure was!!! There is also a road in Teluk Intan named after my grand uncle, who was a prominent justice of peace during his time.
When we were young, my family would travel up to Teluk Intan every Cheng Beng to pay our respects to the dead, our ancestors. We would stay with my uncle or a hotel but never, ever at the mansion. It was full of cobwebs. After the last death of the grand aunties who stayed at the mansion, the whole family from all over the world zoomed to the mansion to see what they could get. The first who got there walloped the majority of the mother of pearl antiques that adorned the ghostly space. By the time we got there (not to steal antiques, mind you), all that was left was some old antique Chinese coins which I still have today.
I wonder if they are worth anything and should really take them to a rare coin dealer to assess their value.
Who knows, eh?**************************************************************************
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.
