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.

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

Royal Commonwealth Essay Award Winner

I just had to post this for memories sake as I am so proud of my little girl. As you can see in the photo, she is THE shortest (in height) winner but also the youngest winner at 8 years old when she entered the competition for the Under 14 category. All my haters (yes, I do have them) are probably thinking, sure, I must’ve helped her…………

But the most amazing thing is, I didn’t. Not a single ounce of help. Why can’t people just accept and believe that a little girl is capable of great things? I’m not here to brag, just that I am truly proud of her. She isn’t perfect. She has a lot of imperfections and she has a lot of weaknesses but in this instance, she has triumphed with a Silver Award. The Gold Award winner from her school up there on stage is almost double her height!

Well done, my darling T1!!!

She was upset that she didn’t win the first prize – a trip to London! *smacks head* More than 11,000 participants around the entire world, yo!

So she’s going to try even harder next year. Good luck to her.

After the award ceremony, she performed splendidly in her concert as Jane in Mary Poppins. So damn cute.
