I love green Once upon a time, she designed buildings and interiors of corporate offices and on the rare occasion, homes. Now, she cleans poop and is student of a patience management course. From the drawing board as a London Architect to the realities of Motherhood, she has certainly learned many lessons in humility. And then others.....

To succeed in the corporate world, first succeed with your kid as the happy boss. Seriously.

This blog is about Mamapumpkin: A crazy, kick-ass Mom who works full time juggling several jobs - the full-time paid job, the raising of her 2 kids (she gets paid in kind for this) and the volunteering job for various charity organisations and parenting websites. Needless to say, she gets very little sleep (3-5 hours per day, Margaret Thatcher who used to sleep 4 hours per day during her conservative career inspires this crazy lifestyle).

Mamapumpkin intends to change the working Mom landscape in Malaysia where working women can bring their children to the corporate office of a client and not be frowned upon.

She writes anything that comes out of her head, mostly without thinking first (since she already has to think at work!), which almost ALWAYS gets her into trouble (according to her husband, whom she considers the love of her life on a good day).

Her 2 pet monkeys drive her towards challenge after challenge, 24/ after day.....and interestingly, her parents are Muslim, her in-laws Buddhist, she's Catholic and her Hubs, an Atheist. She's thinking her kids should be Hindu, just to complete the rainbow religion cycle.

Gotta love it.

She'd love to hear from you : Mamapumpkin at gmail dot com

Me Time

This has been written from the iPhone so I’m not going to be anal about the English errors! Frig! Typing this on the iPhone is hard! I can’t see much, just few words here and there so if it comes out completely wrong, c’est la putain!

I have been blessed recently to be sent away for work and although it is the first time I have ever been away from my kids for so long, I now recommend Stay At Home Moms, ALL moms actually, to take time out at least once a year (more if you can!), to book yourselves into a hotel for 2 days (heck, a week if you can but I know that is bloody unrealistic) as it will completely rejuvenate you.

I have been away from my lovely kids whom I truly love from the bottom of my anus heart, and I have had video sessions with them every night and although I have been working my ass off during the day and night, I have had pockets of ME TIME!!!

I have a suite with a jacuzzi (which I never used), a wonderfully huge ass shower room (so lovely when you can wipe yourself in warmth before exiting into freezing air-conditioning!) with the largest rain shower I’ve ever seen where I luxuriate in self cleaning with peaceful fragrance. I have had time to read without interruptions, watch the news, enjoy my meals in quiet, spend 4 hours at the spa leaving me completely rejuvenated and blissful; and although my wonderful boss advised me to spa every night, I didn’t because there was so much else that I wanted to do, like catch up with friends over the email and Facebook, and simply just enjoy my ME TIME doing absolutely nothing.

Blessed and recharged!!!

I even work at night in the suite yet it has been such a happy time for me. My kids miss me, for sure, and so does the hubs (Bwahahahaha….though he may not admit it! I did ask how he was enjoying life without my presence and he said it was boring), but I get to see them via the home CCTV and so I know they are safe.

I cannot recommend it enough to you moms. Book yourselves into a hotel room for one night at the very minimum and just chill with your own soul, find yourself again, and return home to being the best Mom that you could ever be.

Trust me.

When I get home, I’m going to tell the Hubs that I’m checking into a hotel locally 4 times a year. Woohoo! Yay, me!!!
