Monthly Book Purchase

Every month, we have a monthly budget to buy some books. I really don’t mind spending money on books and even though we spent 5 good years borrowing books from several libraries, we still bought dizzying amounts of books. I just love owning books!!! And being terribly anal, can’t wait to have them all documented to date!!!

This was last November’s loot of books. That was exactly 7 months ago and cost just over RM200, thus in total we probably spend about RM3000 in books. We can claim it from income tax, right?

We never forget little T2……although being the younger, she already has T1’s books to inherit so gets less.



For the longest time since toddler-hood, T1 has been reading Julia Donaldson books starting with The Gruffalo and The Monkey Puzzle etc. Now that she’s grown bigger, Julia Donaldson has grown too. The book below comes highly recommended by T1 because she says it’s really funny. So if you have children at the same reading age, read this:

Meanwhile, I have about 30 books myself to catch up on. Hmmm…….How? How? How?


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. I eagerly await the Big Bad Wolf book sale. I missed the last one. I enjoy buying kids books a bit too much.

  2. I have given up on reading. Gone are those days where I can lie in bed for DAYS to read Sweet Dreams and Sweet Valley High. Now I read newspapers in the toilet (if I’m lucky). Great that both T1 and T2 loves books. Mine don’t quite. Perhaps I got lazy and stopped reading to them, or do you think it’s a boy thing with the short attention span and all?
