Written Commentary from a child:
Throughout the flight to New York, I hardly slept at all but just TWO half hour naps in between. By then, Mommy and Daddy were feeling a bit rough and considered stuffing my mouth with some socks. And then when we arrived at US immigration in New York City and Mommy saw the longest queue, she decided that she was going to fake an epilepsy fit just so we could get a move on our journey. After all, we still had another leg to Orlando, another 6 hours inclusive transit time. Standing and carrying bags or babies was just not Mommy’s thing.
When we finally got to the immigration booth, the defining moment of whether you stay or leave a country, I stuck my finger in my nose and pulled out a booger the size of a golf ball. It was light brown but that was just the beginning till we breathed the very polluted New York air. Immediately spotted by the immigration officer who screamed for help, Mommy panicked and told me to stop playing tricks on people. We were allowed into the country instantly, which I assume had something to do with the American way of life, and as soon as Mommy thanked the officer, he said, “Well, at least she didn’t eat it!!! We still do it here as adults!” Thank you very much, officer.
On the American Airlines plane with only two male stewards (such an eye-opener for us Asians!), I slept all the way. I slept for a whole 6 hours on the tail end of our 38 hour journey and then slept throughout whilst Mommy and Daddy whisked me off to the hotel in Orlando which Tok-Tok got a discount for us. More waiting awaited Mom and Dad when they realised that we needed a taxi with an accompanying child car seat in it before they’d allow us on.
What a blinking pain!!!
*yawn* I’m so jet-lagged that I will continue my story again tomorrow.**************************************************************************
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.
