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

T1’s Swimming Gala

Last Saturday, the whole family brought T1 to her School Swim Gala and forwent 2 open houses and a birthday party for it. We are always in full support of T1 at every school event that she participates in and this time round, she was really excited that she got to participate in her swimming gala. She should have started 3 years ago but she wasn’t interested then. Now, she wants me to take her to RSGC every week to train. Oh, my goodness.

I have never pushed this swimming thing with T1 because I have been a swimmer before who trained every single day for 2 hours. I do not want to put her through that. It takes up so much time and you get broad shoulders. I didn’t make it for the SEA Games either. However, she has asked for this so I will oblige until she loses interest. Just look at how serious she was – she was psyching herself up to win! She only wants to win!

She has a chess tournament this week for MSSWP. It’ll be interesting how she fares. She’s such a little firecracker – wants to make an impact with everything she does, so damn determined.

Whilst she was doing her warm up back stroke, I asked her, “Why is your mouth open during backstroke? You only need to open your mouth to breath during breast stroke and free style, right?”

She said she needed to open her mouth during back stroke because she was panting. At warm up. Gosh. What else would be open during the actual race then?

It was a glorious day of colour and cheer and I would have seriously participated in the parents versus teachers and swim team event BUT due to epic fat storage in gigantonormous proportions, I refrained from strutting the pool in my swim suit. It really was all for the better. But I wish I’d swum as I can swim fast. Even now. The school swim team beat the adults in every event.

Alas, T2 didn’t get to swim because it started pissing rain and they postphoned her event. Lalalalalala…….
