T1’s Birthday Laughs – she made me laugh 5 times today. I feel blessed.
Whilst driving home at noon into our home, I spotted a white man who’d just finished his run soaked in sweat with headphones on and commented, “That guy is crazy. It’s SO HOT!!! Why is he running at this time? He’s crazy.” And T1 said, “It’s not so bad. He’s bald!! All his heat can escape fast through his head.”
In the car, she was blurting out taglines such as the MYVI tagline (building people, cars first – errrr…..what??), Honda (The Power of Dreams), Maggi Mee (Happiness is Homemade), Ecotint (It’s not just a tint, it’s ECOTINT) etc. and I asked her what her school’s tagline was. She was lost. OMG, T1!! You don’t know your school tagline??? Well, it’s not like I see it everyday outside the car window like these other taglines!! Yes, that’s what my daughter does, observes the view outside the car window and absorbs very useful things such as taglines. This conversation turned to car tints as she suddenly pointed out to exactly 3 cars within sight in a traffic jam and said, “Look! All these illegally tinted cars. They ought to be shot. Where are the police? They should be here to enforce the rules. Instead, they’re in the office drinking coffee. And then when the boss comes in, they drop their coffee and pretend to be working.” – where the heck she gets all this from, I have no idea!!! She has also ignored the fact that some people have legal car tints….
Mom, you know, we should design a chair with holes. Huh? What in the world for? Well, if chairs had holes, then we could fart easily and the fart would have a place to escape to. Right now, I always have to lift my bum slightly to fart on a chair otherwise it can’t come out.
On the ride home this evening listening to the radio, every station didn’t have continuous music and I kept flipping channels. Without any prompting from me as T2 was asleep, T1 started, “I don’t like all these talking either. Don’t all these radio stations know that they are killing themselves with all these talk?!” So I explained to her about radio advertising but I loved that she so matter of factly opined that they were killing themselves. Like she was some marketing guru, so grown up – LOL!
Darn, I can’t remember now the last laugh of the day.**************************************************************************
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.
