Tonight, it is 12.24pm and I have not showered. I have spent the last 8 hours working. I do not work every day. I work once a week usually. In fact, most days I am enjoying life playing with my kids or reading or exercising, or plain chatting with friends talking cock and singing songs, and of course, posting on Facebook (my absolute FAVOURITE past time) and well, blogging. I could do so much more but I am the laziest ass around. I don’t even go out to socialise. I am kind of allergic to people. I get media invites which I have to politely decline. I must always remember that I am a heart patient and it has to be ME FIRST.
On top of revelling in my glory of happiness, I have been helping several people with financial challenges and am always the first to say yes as it is a bad habit. My bad habit. I have never needed much. Thus believe that everything I have in access, I can give. However, of late, I went overboard and the Hubs went a bit crazy. He said, “…..even people who earn millions don’t give like this!!! Will any of these people be there for you when you need help? You never know when your heart surgery will be and that could cost a few hundred k right there!!” He was not happy. After all, this is all money that we never had before and so, whatever he makes should be for us and us only. Whatever I make rightfully, I should be able to give away SHOULD I WISH!!!
But you know, he has a point. Charity begins at home. And right now I have an Angel of a friend who keeps reminding me of that fact. She has forced me to pledge that for the month of August, I am to save RM 50,000. August will be MY MONTH. Everything in access, I can give away. But the goal is to put away RM50,000. Guess I can give RM30,000 away!!! That is sure as hell better than giving RM50,000 away. Even though I have zero expectations from all these people whom I give to, the Hubs does not feel the same. So we continue to have this battle for charity. It has been like this for the last 5 years. But my friend says, because AUGUST IS MY MONTH, I will save. And the plan is to go for a girlie holiday to Paris Business Class and stay in a nice hotel and shop silly till I am all Chanel-ed out. The other driver is that this holiday cannot happen if I do not lose weight and look fabulous. Hahahahaha. Otherwise all the holiday photos will be wasted!!!
So I told the Hubs very gently this evening, that I am planning a girlie holiday next year to Paris. His first words were, “Why can’t we come along??? We will come along. I will stay with the girls. You go off with your girls and we won’t disturb you.” Hahahahaha. Fish! So much for a girlie holiday, man!!! Perhaps I have to do this girlie holiday in Korea instead!!! I am sure he will not want to go to Korea. Maybe I can get a nose job in the process.
Said Angel has suggested that I start moving money to Singapore to buy shares there. Check.
Holidays to Bangkok to see the dog (my kids’ cousin) – Check.
Holiday to Hong Kong to visit Cinderella’s Castle – Check.
Holiday to Niseko for Round 2 Skiing – Check.
Where should we go next year? Still on our TO DO LIST, we have a trip to Europe to visit Godma Jamie’s new home and cuddle her new baby! We have to go to the States to stay at Aunty Cheng’s new home with the swimming pool. Kids are just dying to do that because all they care about is swimming every single day. I still have dreams of caravanning in seemingly boring New Zealand but I feel that it should be experienced and perhaps make a trip to the glaciers. We cannot do it all in a year most likely due to school holidays but we shall sure TRY!!!
Ok, back to reading my book now – John Grisham’s Rogue Lawyer.
Want a sweet life? Join my team and work your ass off like I did. Only for a year. Follow every step I made. You cannot be me, but you could get there in double or triple time. Why not? It will be worth it. For retirement. Why not indeed.**************************************************************************
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.
