After dinner, we went to the lounge where the New Year’s Eve Party was being held. I told T1 that those balloons up there were all going to fall at the strike of midnight and she kept asking what time it was all night. Mannnn………….
And because of that, I had a splitting headache which got quickly cured with a cocktail – a mix with whisky and rum! Oh yeah! It worked like magic! Can you believe this woman is my Mom??? Do you see any resemblance at all? I swear, she’s lying to me and must’ve picked me up from somewhere!!!
And then midnight came, and the balloons really fell………
We quickly ran out of the hotel to observe the fireworks……..
Boom-Boom-Boom!!! T2 wasn’t impressed with the booms. She will one day.
And then we ran up to our room to watch more fireworks! The curry house downstairs were having their own fireworks on the street – how cool!
And then we ran back to the lounge for DANCING!!!
T1 spent a whole good hour dancing and did. not. want. to. go. to. bed.
She learnt the YMCA dance moves from her cousins.
She learnt the Macarena dance moves from her cousins, and man, one of her cousins could really dance!
Everyone was happy dancing.
And THAT concluded our New Year’s Eve. The best part was the coming together of family, all 20 of us, all the way from Australia. We are so blessed to have that – FAMILY. Real family, people who would cross the worlds for you at the drop of a hat without question. Now how many people have that?
In this day and age, many families are filled with distrust, jealousy and envy, hidden agendas and backbiting. It’s too tiring. And the moment any of our family members (we have a very big extended family, more than a hundred I reckon) become like that, we run…………..
My Mom has cancer. We have no time for any negativity. Not a single drop. Our resolve has been a good one. We only hang out with good people. It’s so simple. Try it.
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.
