After seeing a friend visit London, my heart ached for London and within 2 days, we were off to London. London is where my soul grew. It is home for me just like KL is home for me too. It is like London was my life pre-kids and Malaysia is my life post-kids. Both extremely important.
I love London for it’s people. Generally, people are intelligent, accommodating, broad minded, worldly, intellectual, and well, people think. After being in business in Malaysia this last 2 years, Malaysian mentality leaves much to be desired and I feel my brain rotting in Malaysia. I feel sorry for my kids that they are surrounded by less than mediocre peers although they are just children so I shouldn’t judge. But when T1 has peers who swear and talk foolishly, it just makes me feel that the quality of classmates that she has is just so poor. Yet after talking to friends in London about their own schooling issues, London has it’s own problems too with drugs and sex at this age. Sigh.
I love London for her rich culture of the performing arts, the many places to visit and things to do, the beautiful parks that we could just run around in and do nothing on grass, blue skies, red buses and. London Underground that zips you to wherever you needed to go, London has a system. Malaysia does not. London has every nationality in it, talents from all over the world, it is world class. Malaysia is not. London has a police force that cares and does it’s job. Although London has it’s fair share of crime and crazies, Malaysia has it’s crime too. All this unhappiness with Muslims is politically engineered. It makes me sick. We should all just love and give and slowly the world will get better and better. Someone has to make that first step. I want a better world for my children which is why I do what I do. But of late, Malaysia is almost pushing me to leave. I want to move to London. Yet I do not want to. What shall I do???
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.
