Malaysians are a selfish lot. I know this because I have been at the fore front of asking. Asking for donations, asking for help, asking for business, asking for charitable causes; and you know what? Malaysians are a selfish lot. Especially the ones who can more afford it, I kid you not! There is a standing joke that states that it is how they get rich in the first place – by being stingy. But you know, how far can one get living a superficial life of all the money in the world? If you’ve had a taste of the high life, you will know this. But if you haven’t, you keep working on getting there when really, it is a futile exercise in this lifetime for when you die, none of these material things go with you.
Ever since I visited Myanmar, my focus and priorities in this life has altered tremendously too and I will be forever grateful for that. I have a purpose and I know where I’m headed. I am clear on what I want for my kids. And let me tell you how amazing things can get when you genuinely start caring about others. It is almost like God puts us all on this big test, for some, it is a lifetime of tests because they keep failing!
For me, I believe that my life has been a blessing because I do the right things. Without sounding righteous, I will help people wherever I can. It is just me paying it forward. I am so thankful for everything that I have.
Currently, apart from loving my entire family with unconditional ferocity, I need to help the following:-
1. Baby Adele’s plight – Adele was diagnosed with Microcephaly when she turned 2 months old. She had multiple spots of calcification in her brain suspected to be caused by the CMV Virus infection. She has been accepted to be treated by a team of medical experts in Philadelphia and needs funds to get her there regularly over a series of months/years. She has a closed facebook page that you can try joining or she has a blog you can follow where you can get details if you would like to contribute. There is also a Halloween party being organised for kids in raising funds for Baby Adele. More details to follow.
2. Myanmar Kids – Some of the kids at Hosanna Home have been pulled out of school because they no longer have the funds to go to school. We are in the process of printing desk calendars for sale in order to raise some funds for them so they can go back to school. More details to follow.
3. Sun Yoga Kota Kinabalu needs your help in making the dream of one woman come true. If you’ve ever been down and needed some help, you would know how it feels when life sucks the living daylights out of you. If you could share this link for crowd seeding in helping Sun Yoga KK get off it’s feet, you would be contributing to one person’s dream in getting her out of her past. This is a project that started with love and will continue to spread the love forward. I can guarantee you of that. Please share this link for Sun Yoga on facebook if you can. I would be most grateful.
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.
