Those of you who know some Eurasians well will attest that these species of people have some concoction of blood that make them a kind of their own. I should know, I have that blood. And so does Tee. And so we all suffer together……
Of all those people who have married into our kind, they have observed and have something to say about us, my husband included. We are feisty. We have balls. Our mouths are sometimes faster than our brains, although our brains are pretty slick. We get into trouble sometimes because we are too %@&#% (I’ll leave that to your imagination).
My parents got divorced when I was 21 years old. Till today, they are still not on good terms. When I was growing up, I always felt that I was caught in the middle of their bitterness but soon, I grew up and was strong enough to tell them both off to their faces, whatever I felt. And it got me somewhere.
Now, my youngest brother who is still studying in Melbourne, is in this same situation I was in. He gets the guilt trips, he steps on egg shells, he is still a dependant; not a good situation to be in. And the moment he tells my Mom NOT to do something (like please, please don’t tell Dad but he hasn’t paid for my school fees yet and it’s 2 months late), what does she do? She’ll go right ahead and threaten my Dad with lawyer’s letters that very same second without regard to the hell my brother would then go through immediately after Dad receives this threat. This has been a broken record scenario for the last few years but to be fair, every single time that my Mom has threatened Dad, he would pay up immediately. And then give my brother hell. What do you do?
And Dad is so good at delaying payments (preferring to squirrel his dough in FDs) by giving my youngest brother guilt stories about how he has no money and has to go around town borrowing money from people just so he could have an education blablabla……he did exactly the same with me, and they were lies all along. So if he thinks he can mess with a Eurasian ex-wife, he’s got something coming……..Eurasians versus Chinese? Eurasians ALWAYS wins.**************************************************************************
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.
