Today I was discussing an article about chicken and antibiotics to T1 that was published in the New York Times. It was an article about marketing tactics practised by the largest poultry giants in the UK whereby they say that their chickens are antibiotic free but really they are not? They just use a different type of antibiotics that are called something else and not for human consumption.
Apparently they are now starting to give antibiotics that are non-human antibiotics to chickens for faster growth and development as opposed to giving human antibiotics to them before. This became a problem because when us humans really got sick, our bodies would already be immune to those antibiotics since we are consuming so much of it from the chickens.
I showed the article to T1 and asked her if she thought that we should eat chicken anymore? She gave up eating chicken 2 years back due to seeing her boobies grow and she felt that the hormones in chicken were making her boobies grow at super speed so she gave them up. She’s even stopped eating McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets and stays away from McDonald’s unless she really has to.
T1 said, “Why not we don’t eat chicken and eat them only when we are sick and need some antibiotics :-p” and she knew it was in jest too. The Hubs and I laughed at her true logic.
On another note, I was asking T2 the other day if she wanted to eat something at a restaurant and I cannot remember now what exactly it was but she didn’t want to and I kept asking her (because I wanted to eat it) and the Hubs decided that we should order that something else in order to make his girls happy. Then I whinged and said that I wanted to eat the other thing because I didn’t know how to make it at home whereas the dish they wanted, I could cook it anytime at home and mine was even better, so please could I have MY dish instead?
3 against 1, OK?
T2 said, “LEARN, Mama…..”
It sure sounds like someone is starting to repeat back the things I usually tell them. Hahaha. Whatever they say they cannot do, I will always say LEARN!
Who is Mamapumpkin?

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.

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.
