Tee staying back at school

Tee has recently asked to stay back in school for after school activities. What happened to Mama time? Am I THAT boring? *sigh*

My girl is really growing up and the school doesn’t help as they shower her with so much love and attention and FUN. She loves her teachers. She loves school. She has never once said she didn’t want to go to school.

So as of next week, Mama is going to have these EXTRA hours till 3pm. Wow!!! What am I going to do???


Tee attended piano lessons yesterday after a 2 week holiday and her teacher was really impressed that she remembers all her notes. She asked me, did she practise everyday? I told her she opened the piano twice over the two weeks but I have no idea if she practised or not because I wasn’t paying any attention. Now, I’m wondering if she really practiced or if she just has a darn good memory!


Recently at school, Tee has been really proud that she has been promoted to doing the next level of Maths International School syllabus and talks about how she can’t wait till she gets to level 2C – that’s the end of Primary 2 going on to Primary 3 at International School.

My girl is in such a rush to grow up. I worry about her. What more, she will be going to a LOCAL school next year where the Math is MUCH easier than what she is doing now. I sure hope she doesn’t get demotivated…..

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.

  1. You think local school maths is easier than int school maths? Give some examples on what she is doing now in the int school maths.

  2. Yeah, they learn so much during their preschool years, then they go to real school and start from scratch again. For example, I taught my children to read since 4 years old. They go to Std. 1 and they begin from ABC. Kindergarten years they are already taught simple addition and subtraction. They start Std.1 and they begin with 123. I’m not really complaining. I understand that not all children are privileged to receive and education before Std.1. That’s why they have to start from scratch. Just trying to point out that home education still plays a vital role. Only we can help our children progress at their own rate (be it fast or slow).
