Science Project by T1

As it is the school holidays, my girls are very busy driving me up the wall!

However, I am having so much fun because their company is really great and they put me in stitches of hysterics every single day!!! They are psychotic lunatics, I kid you not!!!

Today, T1 asked me if she could perform a Science Experiment to separate FAT. Huh? I had no idea what it was about and was too busy to really understand what she wanted to do so I just asked her what she needed. She said milk, dishwashing liquid and food colouring. Sounded simple enough. I asked her if there was any fire involved? She said no, not at all, am I crazy???

I truly didn’t have the time to monitor this activity so I told her to go search for the items herself which she did. Not long later, I heard squeals of delight from both girls!!!

Not wanting to miss out, I ran to the kitchen to see what they were up to and they were both poking this cotton bud into the bowl of colours below and the colours kept moving in a certain way every time they poked the liquid. It was fascinating and a very pretty sight.

I finally asked T1 what this was all about and bless her, she taught me an interesting concept that I will now share with you. The objective of the exercise is to see how dish washing liquid removes oil/fat. I think?

We all know that full cream milk has fat, right? Pour some full cream milk into a bowl. Add some drops of food colouring into the milk. Dip a cotton bud into some dish washing liquid and then start poking your coloured milk mixture. The dish washing liquid cotton bud will push the fat molecules around and this is what your colours are doing. That is exactly how T1 explained it to me.

Then I asked her how and where she learnt this from? Was it from her Science Book? Or her teacher? Not at all!!! She said she read about it from a Science website!!! (the dangers of Google and an iPad). So I asked her where it was and here, ladies and gentlemen, I share with you Steve Spangler’s Science Website that contains lots of Science for Kids!


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.
