A visit to Zoo Negara

We were graciously invited to go to the zoo last November and although I am no big fan of zoos, T1 really wanted to go see some animals and play with her friends. The sacrifices we make for our kids, geez!

Here are some shots of our lovely Zoo Negara and I must warn you that if you are MALAYSIAN, they will ask you for your IC to get the LOCAL entrance rate and please, do not be a walking chatterbox like me and lose sight of your IC because that is exactly what I did and it caused me SO MUCH HASSLE that I even had to have a 2 hour interrogation with JPN at Putrajaya who questioned how I became a Malaysian citizen since I was born in Singapore. WTF! He just wanted money, I’m sure. But that is a story for another day.

The Zoo Negara is a lot less smelly these days so making a visit is bearable. Honestly, I’d much rather spend my time on the beach but then, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to see these lovely pink flamingoes…..










Orang Utans……


T1 imitating the Orang Utans, she really isn’t far off.

The ‘rose’ amongst the thorns?

I was so glad when it was over. MAKAN TIME!!! No photos because I was so hungry. Went straight to the zoo without breakfast. Not a good idea.

And I present to you, TRUE LOVE……I just love it when I see true love. True love everywhere. So much hatred in the world today.

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.
