When my kids get out of hand, as they sometimes do, I threaten them that I will send them to the Police Station. We’ve been having this threat ever since T1 was 3 years old and yes, we have actually brought her there a few times. Children need a bit of fear sometimes, or they climb all over your head. They need to know who’s boss.
So when they DO misbehave, I don’t mince my words. We take a drive with lots of apologies and beggings to turn the car back home, but if you’ve pushed me beyond my limits, there is no turning back. You hear that, hubby dearest??? *bats eyelids*
There is a police station in Bangsar right beside BV. I wouldn’t exactly call it a police station, more a PONDOK, in any case, there is actually a cell behind it which I’m sure any convict can break out of with some skill. The Hubs and I, sometimes we fantasize about leaving them right in front of the police pondok in hope they’d be picked up and thrown into that cell just so we can go to the movies in peace. And we tell our kids that all the time………it doesn’t scare them, seriously.
What was interesting during our trip to the police pondok this year was that Bangsar was being targetted in the high end residential areas by crooks driving big, expensive cars. When you see a nice, expensive car driving around any of the roads, you just assume that it belongs to one of the residences. However, be aware that the person driving it could actually be a thief!
Yes, the police told me that they’ve been disguising themselves as residents roaming around the neighbourhood in order to avoid suspicion and then as soon as the owners are out of the house, they attack the maids and raid the house.
If you live in Bangsar or anywhere that is considered a more affluent residential area, my advise is to inform your maids, gardeners, drivers and guards and always be on alert.
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.
