Pusat Maritime Putrajaya – Maritime Centre

Did you even know such a thing existed???

We have a Maritime Centre, yo! Err…..what’s that exactly?

This is it! But what is this building for???


To get a great view from a shaded area? Sorry, I know my photography skills (or rather my lousy camera) makes this look more like a slum than a ‘great view’……


But there are already many buildings in Putrajaya where you can get the same view from…..


To look at contemporary art pieces ala silver copper tooling fishes on a wall?


Here, take a closer look.


To have beautiful big grounds so we can give more jobs to the gardeners?


This gardener deserves the sack though. Really.


To hold your birthday party overlooking the Putrajaya Lake?


Quite possibly……

But if you asked me, it’s another white elephant – a bloody waste of tax payer’s money because seriously, can someone please tell me how often the space, that vast amount of space, is used IF AT ALL???

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. White elephant? I doubt it. From my daily observations since 2010, unhappy adults don’t really like this place. Then again, I maybe wrong.

  2. I actually come here quite often with my friends and cousin. The pool is great and the steam sauna is the best. Beats Fitness First’s hehehe. Although I can’t say the same bout the dry sauna. The gym has limited machines but still decent enough to break a sweat and workout. I’m actually planning to try the karaoke lounge soon. The fees for all the facilities are reasonable even if you are not a member and only go on a pay per visit basis and they are really well kept. Oh ya, not forgetting, convenient…ample parking, the food at the restaurant is good and there’s a prayer room.

  3. I was told that this place is a great place and will love to check it out. Looks lovely but how come not many people knew about this place. The authority or owner should do more promotions and advertisments to promote the place so returns on investment is there. Cheers : ) : )

  4. Yup, agree with those comments above. Maritime is a great place with a lot of activities and facilities. The swimming pool is the best. Indoor swimming pool for adults and kids. It always full with people and so convenient. Sometimes some of us choose to swim rather than go to alamanda during our long break in friday. see… it is sooo convenient. hehe… At least for us in putrajaya 🙂 not just that. Its been my regular jog route and the view is the best. Also i can see many people go there doing their own activities. Family, youths, kids. They enjoy it so much. Other than that, Maritime has a lot to offer. Its a must go spot 🙂

  5. Hi mamapumpkin. I bet u’re right. Talk is cheap. Why not take it together with a bunch of salt and lots of pepper? In your case.

    U not the only one paying in tax here.
    I paid tax about RM300k a year.
    U can calculate my income though.
    I have a choice if i dont want to pay my tax. Charity.
    Or swiss private bank.

    Yes i have a bussiness.
    U might say, oh this fella rich got plenty of money thats why she can bitch about paying tax.
    Do mind, 6 years ago, i had a salary of only RM839.80 per month to be exact.
    Can’t live with the salary. Even i’m single.
    Do I blame the gov for not giving higher salary?perhaps. Not sure. Maybe. I have a degree by the way.
    But then i’ll find out how i could change my life. Took months to find out about the oppurtunities the gov had provided to start a biz. Esp for single women like me.
    THERE’s A LOT. Tekun, etc etc. u jz need to apply.
    I took loan from the gov funding, of course hv to pay monthly after i got the loan.
    Failed for the 1st time. Go back to them. They provide me with biz advises, etc etc. Applied for another loans.

    Now, i am paying tax for RM300k a year. 6 years ago my income for a year is about RM10k.

    I still go to this place u called white elephant.
    For me its extremely cheap paid rm5 with a first class facilities.
    More importantly, knowing that i had my cents threw out to gov to build this white elephant, and seeing without fail every weekend, the smiles on the childrens faces playing with water, and a bliss smiles of the parents faces, feeling content of achievement that their children were happy;
    it’s all worth it. For the RM300k tax that i obliged to pay each year.
    And knowing that cents of my taxes, is being threw to funds gov institutional to provide loans for Malaysian to start a biz, jz like me, build mosques, schools, roads at kampung, pay teachers so the children will get their education, pay government servant so they can buy food, buy clothes for themselves and families, even to the minister wether they did good job or crap job, doesn’t matter to me as long as i knew, the salary they have they used it to bring their family to dinner, buy clothes, holidays to make their children, wife happy, and knowing each one of all these, i had my 2cents of mine.

    Yes u are right, mamapumpkin. Talk is cheap. Very cheap.

    And i will continue to pay my RM300k tax a year.
    Just to put a smile on Malaysian, when they received their salaries, received funds, and knowing i had my 2cents on it.
    The feeling of it, fulfilling, contentment, bliss, achieved, victory…u named it.

    Hamba Allah
