People are always shocked when they learn that my parents are Muslim. Then when they find out that my Mother is married to a Malay, they go, “ohhhh……no wonder!”
But in actual fact, my Mom became a Muslim way before she married Tok-Tok and it had nothing to do with Tok-Tok! Mom purposefully chose to follow the religion and up till today cleanses herself, wears her full praying outfit, gets onto her prayer mat and prays 5 times a day! And she was doing this way before her cancer came knocking as well. For that and for all the good that she has done to and for the people around her, I am certain she will go to the brightest place in Heaven.
Islam is a beautiful religion. It is only the twisted people in Malaysia and extremists around the world that give it a bad name. If you actually took the time and effort to learn it, should you be so keen and interested, you will find that it is a beautiful religion.
Will I be a Muslim then? Not anytime soon I don’t think. But only because I don’t believe in being one particular religion or following rules per se. As long as one has sprituality and is close to God/A Higher Being, always does good; one is safe to enter the other world at peace. I know many purportedly religious people who have black hearts, gamble, have distasteful behaviours and so on – really, what is the point then of going to Church every Sunday?**************************************************************************
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.
