The quirkiness of English

Today, my Mother told me that she reads my blog. What? You heard right. My Mother reads my blog! Oh my God. Soon, the shit will hit the fan! Should I have expected anything less? Ever since she dabbled her toes into the pond of technology in the form of an Ipad, she’s been practising her swimming.

So I though she was going to give me a shelling on how dare you put that ugly picture of me there or how dare you say that of me, delete your blog immediately!!! and waited apprehensively for the slashing.

It came!

But it wasn’t for what I’d written about her. It was about my spelling. Oh my goodness. Betul-betul fail……

She said she read in some posts that I wrote bare instead of bear when I’d write bear with me……

Trust her to notice my imperfect English. I probably have the worse English in our whole family. Wait. No, that would be my youngest baby brother, muahahaha……..

I was embarrassed nevertheless because I pride myself in knowing when to use the simplicities of practise and practice, accept and except, may and can, emigrate and immigrate, farther and further, it’s and its, moral and morale……you get the drill. But then when it came to the simple bear with me, I’d been spelling it wrong. ARGHHH!!!!


I totally blame it on the epidurals!!!

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.
