Here we are again on another holiday! Totally blessed. Everyone’s been asking us if the kids are on school holiday? Actually, no. They are not on school holiday at all but what’s new? We go on holiday whenever wherever and they get pulled out of school. The school certainly frowns upon this practice but it is my prerogative. We deem our family time as top priority.
On this point, I have been showing my girls through example how Mommy breaks the rules. I can’t remember what I did now but exactly today, I was exhibiting to them how I had broken the rules and that is why I am where I am today. Not that I condone rule breaking at all but if you thought something was right and a rule needed to be broken for a good cause, then never cower to the rule but be brave enough to fight for what is right. And then I continued to explain to them that skiving school was effectively breaking the school rules but in the larger scheme of things, they would gain more value on holiday than the few days that they are not at school. They don’t get away scott free though because all school work that they missed those days at school is taken in advance and done either before or during the holiday LOL. I was telling T1 that she missed 2 months of school by being involved in the School’s Annual Production yet she had to keep up extra hours at night to complete all work set by the school thus this is no different. Thankfully, she managed to keep up with her school work despite having 2 months of full days in Cheras rehearsing and practising as stage crew for the musical.
I watched the movie Jackie on the plane that told the very sad story of Jackie Onassis and it put things into perspective of how awfully blessed I am. It really cannot be easy being The First Lady. I cannot imagine what type of First Lady I would be but probably the first to sit ‘kangkang’ and swear like a horse. And to see your husband get shot right beside you and then deal with 2 toddlers at home? Man, I think I would have crushed. I mean, I’ve been through some pretty down and out times in my life but nothing as bad as seeing a loved one get shot. That is just downright SUPER TRAUMATIC. Last week, I shared some of my life trauma with a close friend and she gave me this Trauma Life oil to use. I don’t know if it worked or what but I felt so happy the next day. Weird.
Whilst I am here on holiday, I keep getting reports from others that so and so is speaking about me and digging about me. Ahhhhh…….so what’s new eh? My life is so darn interesting that everyone wants to know what I am up to. Booyah!!! I must have done something right or done something so well that people MUST talk about me and dig up my whereabouts for their own agendas. You know what they say…..if you are a nobody, nobody would know you nor disturb you but when you are a somebody, the whole negative world is out to get at you. Lalalalalalala…….please continue killing me whilst I enjoy my family holiday.
People are so absorbed about this and that when the reality is that actually, I do not care. Really. I don’t. I have enough. So whatever you do, it will still have no effect on me. Thus why do you want to waste your time? I mean, it is entirely up to you. Go work hard to prove your point. You win.
My daughter has surprised me with a lot of maturity and wit of late and I am wondering if she gets it from school or some hidden genes of ours but the stuff that comes out of her mouth has been pretty impressive that I can no longer see her as a 12 year old but as my peer. Are you kidding me? But yes, she is that mature and can think laterally so I am very curious how this comes about. Was it her early education years? Is this the exposure that she is getting from school? Or is it just us at home sparring and laughing all the time? Probably a mix of all and I am very happy with her progress.
We spent the day with Baby Ems today and it was super fun. We love that baby to bits. Her body is so solid and she is a high class baby that drinks Izumio with every bottle of milk ok! She is going to be so smart that one. I am glad the 3 cousins get to spend quality time together even if their ages seem distant right now. At least they have each other when I am gone. Speaking of which!!!! My Dad told me today that he had purchased his funeral package so we won’t have to and we had the most BIZARRE conversation about death!!!! I told him that I could very well die before him and this is so true, and he said it’s OK then, I could use his package first LOL. It got me thinking of death and what I would want for my death and how I would like my funeral to be etc. Since I am so free, I think I am going to search for one super hot picture of me and get it blown up for my funeral and then inform everyone where to find it in the event I die before my time so they can use a good picture of me. That is all so important. Hahahahaha.
For the longest time, I have maintained that I would like to be cremated and put in a small white porcelain jar with silver font and a classy slim pink ribbon around it, and this jar would sit at home. Now I am not so sure. Firstly, why would my death be celebrated or mourned? Anything that needs to be done with me now should indeed be done now. So when I go, the only people that I would want with me are my immediate family. I don’t want any major event. And I think I will write them all a letter for safe keeping to be found after I die. The pain is with me and I am almost sure that it isn’t going away real soon. But I will live as best I can to enjoy all my blessings thus far. 5 years? 10 years? Who really knows eh? Let’s work towards 40 years!!!
I do hope my little one can get a grip of life sooner rather than later so I can be at peace to know that she will be OK. I actually dreamed that I died this week and she was the first to cry uncontrollably and the scary thing was when I woke up, she had entered my bedroom and cried on me exactly as she had in the dream!!! But for an entirely different reason LOL. Oh, did I mention that I started meditating? I learnt the skill so quickly and perhaps I already had that talent always but just didn’t know how to tap into it. Now I can switch modes pretty quickly and feel more spiritually aware. It is really amazing how far I have come in this amazing journey called life. I hope my girls have the same kind of adventures I’ve had leaving out all the hurtful and dangerous bits and grow to become useful adults in today’s crappy society. To migrate or not to migrate. That is the question……
Meanwhile, more family holidays sil vous plait until we actually get drawn to one particular place we can comfortably consider our new home. Norway? LOL.**************************************************************************
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. 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.
