Buying Baby Shower Gifts

Last month, I contemplated organising a baby shower for a friend who so deserved a grand baby shower but due to my own crazy schedule, I had to grit my teeth and gave it a miss. I consoled myself by saying I will make it up to her somehow when the time is right. I am a terrible friend, aren’t I? People who really know me know what kind of a lousy friend I am and that is why despite seeing my maid of honour only once every year (if at all!), she knows that if she called me at 4am in the morning and asked me to go over, I would. That is why she would do something illegal for me. That is why our kids have an unspoken bond. That is why even when she owes me money, I know it is because she has truly forgotten. We’re lousy friends, we admit it. But we love each other so who cares about buying baby shower gifts???

What I’ve learnt is that in friendship, one friend could give another all the material goods in the world and not get it reciprocated and yet, they can be the best of friends. For friendship is not about giving each other stuff or buying each other lunch. It isn’t. It’s nice if you do, but you really don’t have to. Do you agree? How do you view friendship? What is friendship to you?

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.
