The Schwedagon Pagoda in Yangon is the most beautiful sanctuary of peace in Yangon. It is so big that it is almost like a village in its own right. You could spend hours and hours there just doing nothing, wandering around inhaling the calm and serenity of holiness.
I was really fascinated that the peak of the Schwedagon Pagoda is made from real jewels, which means that if you really wanted to get a ladder and climb to the peak, you could STEAL THOSE JEWELS!!! Which is exactly what would happen in Malaysia!!!
But not here. Yangon people walk on the streets with thousands of US dollars of cash openly in black garbage bags and they do not get robbed.
The city is as safe as safe could be. People are so humble and honest and the Schwedagon Pagoda is the last place one would think of doing anything otherwise.
It is a MUST VISIT for anyone who visits Yangon.
A beautiful sea of holiness…….
I felt myself return to my core self – the soul that we often lose in our day to day lives.
And there were SO MANY Buddhas of all shapes, colours and sizes that we even found a chocolate Buddha!! I wanted to lick him!!!
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.
