Boo-hoo-hoo x 100000000000000000000000000 !!!
Our family were booked in to stay here next March during the school holidays for a week. But suddenly, the Hubs changed his mind and said we shouldn’t go after all. Why? He read about Tokyo having pockets of radiation now and that some Americans were asked to leave Japan. My Hubs, he’s all pro-American having spent half his life there and reads all the American news, not the Malaysian news.
And because we were going to be travelling from Tokyo all the way up to Hokkaido, the risk with kids and all, he didn’t think it worth it.
I think the real reason was that he didn’t want to spend the money and would rather lose a little than spend a lot. Hrmph.
The girls and I were SO disappointed!!! T1 was looking forward to seeing real snow!!!
So I told the Hubs that if we weren’t going to Japan, then we could use the money for shopping to make up for our disappointment. His heart bounced hard a few times, DOING-Doing-doing-DOING!!, but he finally agreed that we could use a portion of the budgeted holiday money for shopping. Lalalalala……I love my husband, I really do.
So whilst we will have no holiday next March, we have started budgeting for our next holiday instead.
It’s so hard planning for holidays but someone’s got to do it. I should just provide a service – HOLIDAY PLANNER – and charge for it.
How many people have the time to research and read and ask around to decide where to go, what to do and where to stay? Even which flights to take, what times, which connections and all the painful fringes that come with planning a holiday?
So there you go. No more Japan for us.
Boo-Hoo-Hoo x 10000000000000000000000000 !!!
We have never been to Japan and were REALLY looking forward to it. I guess this means you will not be seeing T2 dressed up like this……..
And neither will we.
BOO-HOO-HOOOOOOOOO x 100000000000
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.
