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.

I love green

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

Myanmar, here we come again!

Every time I tell T1 that we are going to Yangon, her eyes open wide and I feel her heart fluttering. The girl absolutely loves it there. Why? Because she gets to spend one on one special time with Mama. And she gets to drink 100 Plus since the MD of 100 Plus gave her a can one day. We don’t allow her to drink it here. But of course, she also loves the Children of Myanmar………

She says that they are much nicer than children here, no offence to the kids here. She has seen with her own eyes how they live, how they eat, how they are so happy with so little, how they share, how they treat her like a Queen whenever she is there…..she knows how lucky she is, yet she doesn’t discount the fact that she really wants to help bring them to a better place. This time round, we will be bringing them some big ass bubbles for FUN!!!

Like this one here:

Yes, I’ve already ordered the bubbles solution and all the bubble wands from the supplier here and will transport them to the kids!

Just to be clear, I have not used a single cent that all of you have donated for these bubbles. These are coming out of my own pocket and from the kind heart of Mr Bubble Supplier – if you want to know where to get these awesome bubbles set that is set to get any kid excited, email me for info.

The money that we collected from the Children’s Bazaar that was raised for the Children of Myanmar is being used right now for their education. I mentioned earlier that the kids have written in their proposals on what they want to study? Yup, that’s where the money will go. Next year, we will have another bazaar to raise more funds for the kids until they can sustain themselves.

All renovation works have been completed now. They are as comfortable as we feel they can be and I will take photos when I am there. For now, I need to pack and plan for our workshop for the Children of Myanmar!!!
