It’s amazing. My husband is a nagger. He nags about how I spend money all the time. Now that I’m working, I have started spending a bit more and can you believe it, even when it is my hard earned money, he STILL nags me about it!!! Freaking hell!!!
So last week, I impulsively did some shopping because I felt like some new clothes. I bought five tops and put it on the credit card because hey, I don’t carry that kind of cash around, unlike oh, maybe I shouldn’t say. So I came home with 5 lovely, flowy LARGE tops that I could use for work and for play – see? Value for money, so versatile.
The Hubs obviously has been keeping tabs with my credit card bills online as that particular figure must have popped out in front of his eyes although he had not mentioned anything. I say this because last night, when we came out of the Bangsar Village lift, he suddenly said, “OH!!! So THAT’S WHAT WALLIS IS!!!!”
A sense of guilt poured down on me. Shit. I was hoping he’d just brush Wallis off as some pharmacy. Yeah, you know…..I spend a lot of money on your children with vitamins and formula from the Wallis Pharmacy. But no. There, in front of us, big and bright, was the damn Wallis sign board and the store with sale signs flashing right in front of us.
The nagging began.
“How many pieces of clothes did you get with THAT amount?”
“Was it all shear fabric?” To him, shear fabric means cheap and more heavy duty fabric means better value, can keep me warm….
“Do you really need more clothes? There are so many you haven’t even worn!?!” He doesn’t know that I haven’t worn them because I cannot FIT into them!!!
Hey, at least it wasn’t a RM20,000 bill at Chanel, right?
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.
