Kota Bharu 2013

My girls love the kampung because Kong-Kong has such a big garden that they just go crazy in it. They don’t need toys, they don’t need electronics and just take every opportunity to run out into the garden to just run around and do nothing! For that, the Hubs and I do entertain thoughts on moving to Kota Bharu entirely and getting out of polluted KL, getting out of the pretentiousness that comes with KL society and leaving all the money behind. Life would be so much simpler in KB.

Some of the things the girls did over the Chinese New Year holidays in Kota Bharu:-

Water Plants




Getting a ride


Enjoying wide space


Playing play dough when I disallowed them to go out when it was too hot


Paint with Amah’s home grown vegetables – oh, yes!


Drew on concrete with chalk – just look at this princess! She gets her drink held for her whilst she draws. I would have just Β told her to stuff it!


We had sprint races where I always won. Give chance? Not a chance, what in the world for?!


They got to see real frogs. Big frogs too! Hello? Please kiss me and I might turn into a Prince……


Hop around in their Cheong Sams……


Only 3 weeks before we are back in Kota Bharu again for Cheng Beng. Yay!

Am I busy? You bloody bet.

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.
