Pattaya Beach, Thailand; yup, that’s where we are right now! Why? Initially, we came to join the Pattaya Triathlon as a family to support a brand and were prepared to invest RM20,000 to give out FREE products to the participants but ever since the company has shown extra support to foul play, I decided not to support them anymore. But as a team, we came for a fun family holiday anyway. And fun it has been!
The kids are at the pool which sits just outside our suite daily three times a day. They are as brown as drain rats at the moment whilst I am at the spa every single day. I am spoilt but I just LOVE being marinated in beautifully scented oils……
We have been eating glorious Thai food and playing Card Monopoly and I must say the little one is getting pretty good at property purchases! The game is good because it allows them to practise their business acumen and learn to be smarter than smart which is all skills we need in the real world, isn’t it? People may try to bring me down, for example, but before they even begin, I am already 10 steps running ahead, thanks to the training from my late Mom. She always said to not show your enemy your real plans. Uhh Uhh Uhuh……this comes from one of my team member’s favourite songs from Phuket. What awesome memories we had but it is the last of my free holidays with that company. I have moved on.
People cannot believe how not desperate I am when it comes to money. I think that when you have already been exposed to money, it is really not such a big deal. It’s like that Hermes bag. When you do not have it, perhaps you desire it but once you can afford it, it really is no longer a big deal. And anyway, different people have different priorities. Some people have such a shallow view of the world, it is not wonder why they are called cows. Some think they are so clever but there is no point in being clever when you have no emotional bearing, know what I mean? Because in business and in being happy in this world, you NEED soul. You need a genuine heart filled with love and you need to be able to inspire others with sincerity. Failing which, everything is temporary. You could never, EVER, build a sustainable real business (or friendship) with bullshit. Bullshit will only take you so far, dearest friends. So please, firstly be honest with yourselves. Why are you so unhappy? The world has so much to offer. But if you cannot even live with yourselves, you will live an endless struggle of war.
Pattaya gives me the impression of being a sex beach possibly because when I was the Country Director of a multinational railway signalling company, the foreign engineers we used to hire would go to Pattaya for a weekend of play. That would be golf play during the day and girlie play at night, and me being the only girl in their circle, would listen to all their funny stories of play. But now I am right here with kids!!! Thank goodness we have not been exposed to anything sexual LOL.
Food has been good but only because we have a Thai national with us to bring us around to the best places to eat. Seafood is extremely fresh and yummy. We had steamed crabs last night dipped in Thai chilli sauce. We had steamed crayfish, steamed fish, steamed prawns, salted egg squid which was different to what we have back home. Absolutely wonderful. I look forward to more yummy food tonight.
Oh, it’s time for my spa session! Gotta run……**************************************************************************
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.
