Apart from the thermometer hunt, we also had to hunt for rolling pins because the Hubs sent us for a rolling pin hunt. Isn’t it quite weird for a husband to send a wife to go buy a rolling pin? Well, it is because he makes th tortilla wraps for our Mexican dishes at home from scratch and we do not have a proper rolling pin. Timber rolling pins give us the creeps because of the grain that hides bacteria and gets moldy so he wanted me to search for a metal or good plastic one in London. We went everywhere and we could not find a bloody rolling pin! We saw online that some places had marble rolling pins but the thought of carrying back marble put me off.
One day at Sainsbury’s, the girls were so tired looking for rolling pins that T1 said, hey Mom, why don’t we just get this toilet brush holder for daddy and he could use the jar as his rolling pin. It was round and it did looked like it could work but a toilet brush holder????? LOL. I told the Hubs and he said, “OK, just make sure she knows that her Tortillas are being made with a toilet brush holder, ya?”
And then T1 had a spotlight moment and remembered seeing baking stuff at Spotlight at Ikano. Let’s send Daddy there, she requested. And so we are flying back from London sans rolling pin.
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.
