Cabinet Reshuffle in Malaysia

I got a shock yesterday when I read about the cabinet reshuffle in Malaysia. Now I am one to steer away from politics in Malaysia not because I have no interest in it nor have nothing to say about it but because my stepfather has been a politician before. I know the game. Best I just shut up.

However it really brought back memories because at a similar time last year, in my own secret Mamapumpkin Group of ladies, I had also one night went on a random culling of a large group of women. Why did I do it? I had heard from one of the ladies and with evidence what exactly 4 of the ladies had done, a gross act of betrayal. In order not to embarrass them, I kicked everyone out randomly. I figured if anyone were really interested in being a part of the group for a real purpose, they would have asked me what happened and I would have told them. And for those that couldn’t be bothered to ask, well, they didn’t deserve to be a part of the group then.

Because many of them were guilty anyway for being in the group just as stalkers or gossip queens, they didn’t dare ask!

The sincere ones did and I added them back in. Some were nonchalant. It didn’t make a difference to them whether they were in or out so they just left it. That kind of attitude didn’t warrant being in the group either. I wanted genuine people with great attitudes.

The lot of them would laugh if they heard this because some of them actually came to me to tell me that ACTUALLY, the remaining people in my group were the traitors and THEY were the good ones. So much drama. Anyway, they went off to form their own new groups which I had already encouraged them to do many a time since there were internal bickering going on and I was getting quite tired of it. And whilst they started their new group, not only did they start pulling people over from my group (yes, they would have loved to believe that people followed on their own accord but I know better) but also bitched and lied about me to several others. They were really smart about it too. The ones who would have fucked them up straight to their faces, they would not dare mention my name but for most, they would ask about me. It was my drama of 2014.

post_group_of_dogs_450x350 Hey, do you think they look familiar???

It is times like this when you really see who your allies are and learn about the true characters of people. Even the girls who complained about them ended up being in their group! They turned all the lies around to attack me of all people when I had absolutely NOTHING to do in the first place with any of their internal squabbles. Easy attack just because I told them off and when I refused to reveal my sources, they became vicious. To the point of ruining families by sending hate mail and random reporting to the authorities for utter nonsense. I have never EVER met such a vicious group of women!!! People would ask me how the heck I knew them? Sad to say, they were all blog readers…..and you know what? I really treasure my blog readers. But unless you have known them for more than 5 years very well, they are as good as anyone else on the street because you really don’t know people until you’ve had enough quality time with them. Even friends turn around as I have experienced over the years so to me it is never a surprise. When innocent parties ask them what had happened, different people got different stories. So much lies went in about me it’s not even funny. I kept asking for a showdown so the truth came out in front of EVERYBODY but none of them would oblige. I know I am a lucky girl and I am not perfect but what those ladies did and continue to do, was just below the belt. If I could afford it, I would pay for their psychological help.

So yeah! Najib’s cabinet reshuffling sure did remind me of that drama last year! When I think back now, it is funny. It is funny that out of so many women there that I had helped, they would turn against me without even asking me what had happened and merely by virtue of hearing the story first from the other parties. And you know what? They know who they are. All the women that I have helped whether in cash or kind, they so know who they are and yet. They must be justifying their actions with stories played in their head. And the few who they went to to try to convert, they were the smarter ones.

I have learnt now to be a bigger bitch. And I learn from my awesome bitch Sifu.

Once upon a time, people bitched about Mahathir being a dictator. I was at the Energy Spa at Great Eastern Mall when a matsalleh lady brought up the fact that he was bad for doing this and that but I fought her. I am not pro-Mahathir but seriously, I have been in situations where people are SO STUPID that you just have to shut them down. They don’t see the light at all because they have either been brainwashed or have an untrusting attitude, thus no matter what you do, they will fight you without logic. For this, Mahathir just shut them down. I totally understood and I fought my case with that matsalleh woman who was obviously pro-Anwar. I am not pro nor against Anwar either. I’m just saying. Sometimes people are so stupid that you just have to move on and give up. You’d be wasting your time otherwise. It isn’t that you don’t care. It is because they don’t. Not even for themselves.

Conversations with My Mom

I have been feeling my Mom’s presence more so of late. I think the woman is really happy in Heaven and has nothing else better to do than to pass me all these terminal cancer patients. Oh. My. God. Why is she doing that??? I am SURE that my Mom is helping me in this Izumio and Super Lutein business. How else would I have grown this quickly? What more in a network marketing business that people usually frown upon. To the point I really need to start looking for a driver and a PA. We do not have a maid at home at the moment and for the longest time now and although I may struggle at times, it isn’t really all so bad. We currently don’t even have a part-timer. I am looking forward to spring cleaning the entire house once and for all.

cheongsam

I have always loved a challenge and I never ever would have ventured into a network marketing business if it wasn’t for my health deterioration. So it is a by chance kind of thing but as I grew into it, I started really seeing the opportunity. And then I decided to change the game. Do you think this is a lousy business? That it would never work? I was out to prove the naysayers wrong and I have! Blessings are continuously flowing in.

One thing my Mom taught me is that we do not have to share everything with people. Just keep it to yourself, she says, when you know someone has betrayed you or hurt you or stolen from you. I am still struggling with that. Because when people have done wrong, I want to shout at them and tell them to go fuck themselves. But I cannot. Because Mom will pull me down and say let God do His work. URGH. But I want to kill them NOW. And the she gives me that death glare and I would oblige. She is my Mother. It is HARD!!!

426911_10150540541288106_1453158352_n

She also says that we do not have to share our good deeds with others. Unless showing off has a purpose. Like I would never want to appear in a floozy high society magazine unless I was forced to to get something out of it for charity for example. I might oblige if it was going to raise a few hundred k for children. But otherwise, Mom says whatever you do, you keep it to yourself. And so this year in memory of her, I have started practising that. I have a friend in Australia who does exactly the same and I am her runner. I would acknowledge that it wasn’t me though because no way will I ever take credit for something I did not do. This year I would specifically tell the person not to share our secret with anyone or even make myself anonymous to the person. It’s damn fun. Try it! Little do you know that acts of kindness starts ripples and in time, the world becomes a better place.

Yesterday, I made 4 sales. Like poof. Just like that. They weren’t my own contacts. They were my team members contacts that I had to convert for them and I did it. This morning before I left the house, I was talking to my Mom in the mirror. I was happy. She was happy. It was a happy time. I just cannot believe how she is following me everywhere I go. Well, I’m not complaining. I just wish she was here in person instead so I could touch her, feel her skin, see her eyes shine at me. The kids miss her terribly. We all miss her. I hope I dream of her tonight.

Negative Thoughts

no-negative_thoughts-allowed

Do you know what differentiates the people who make it in life and those who don’t? It is their negativity. I’m not just talking about money here. It is everything. If you think you cannot do a backbend, you can’t. If you think you cannot do 500 pushups in an hour, you can’t. If you think you cannot run a marathon, you can’t. If you think you would never be President of the United States of America, you won’t. If you think you would not be able to get that dream job, you won’t. If you think your child will not come back from school happy, she won’t. Of course I state this in very broad terms but it doesn’t take a genius to work out what I mean. For example, if you’re not even American to start of with, then what are your chances ever to become the President, right? But let’s just say you WERE and American, what’s to say you don’t have the very same chance as your fellow American beside you?

So when it comes to your career, if you think that you will never be able to earn RM1 million dollars a month, you probably won’t. But if you thought you could, you would. It is the beginning. If you think something will work, it will work. I just cannot stress this enough and keep drilling it into my own kids. They’re getting it, thank goodness! Because I can tell you, there is a whole population out there who are negative as hell who have absolutely no confidence in themselves and set themselves up for failure time and time and again. They think to themselves, oh, that’s not for me. I’m happy with what I have. I’ll just make do. I have already reached my peak. It’s the furthest I can go. For fuck’s sake, here I am teaching my girls not to play with glass slippers but to crash glass ceilings instead and there you are, shame on you adult, who cannot believe in yourself or take the initiative to lead by example. Come on everyone, you CAN do ANYTHING.

Almost.

Again, don’t be stupid. You know what I mean.

There is evidence on this theory of positive thoughts versus negative thoughts. Dr Masaru Emoto, in his book, The Hidden Messages of Water, profoundly demonstrates the power of thought or other non-physical stimuli to influence reality. He took a sample of water from one source and dropped a small amount into 50 Petri dishes and froze them at -25 degrees for 3 hours. The samples were then refrigerated at -5 degrees and frozen crystals were photographed through a microscope.

This experiment was repeated with the same water which had been exposed to various stimuli, including music, words and prayer. Classical music, loving words and thoughts and thank you messages left crystals that were beautifully formed. And unbelievably, the water that was left with Heavy Metal music and words such as you make me sick, I will kill you, you are so stupid, you will never grow, created ugly, malformed crystals.

The power of thought and intention has also been proven through meditators focusing their attention on an electronic box. Their intention was to increase the pH of the water by 1 point. These electronic boxes along with their respective control boxes were then placed 6 inches away from separate samples of water. Considering that a 1-point pH rise in the human body would be fatal (ding-ding-ding Kangen Water people), the statistical probability of an increase occurring naturally was less than a thousand to one. Correct?

Yet, the boxes which received the focused intention did indeed alter the pH of the water.

How the fuck does that happen???

Thought impulses are forms of energy. When you begin with a thought impulse, you are drifting into the service the same stuff that nature used in creating this Earth.

So the next time you want to direct your intention, think. What exactly do you want to happen? How will it be exactly? Go into as much detail as possible and see it live happening right in front of you in your mind. Play out the colour, the words, the sounds, the smells, make it real. Rehearse what you say and what others are saying back. Imagine what you will feel and connect to that whole experience.

Then see what happens next……….depending on what it is, it could happen within hours, days, weeks, months, years……….but it will happen. Please report back your stories!

Hiring a PA (Pumpkin Assistant)

Hola! I am now hiring a Pumpkin Assistant because I really do need some assistance!!!

asian-business-woman-on-phone

If you know of anyone who is:-

1. Dynamic (go-getter, won’t sit on their ass type, lots of initiative),

2. Detailed (will check-check-and check again so that the work is perfectly right the first time round, has an eye for mistakes, catches and pays attention to detail),

3. Creative (can give me 50 ways to use a string in 5 minutes but don’t prepare for this because I will ask you something completely different at the interview, can visualise graphics and have an eye for good layouts)

4. Writes and speaks good English (better still if they have a command of both Bahasa or Mandarin) – you don’t have to have a wide vocabulary but I prefer if you have good grammar.

5. Preferably someone on a YEAR OUT or an INTERN because they come fresh and pick up fast. Just like my old Nannies – I MISS THEM!!! They would have been PERFECT!!!

6. Has their own car and a valid driving license – a MUST

7. Has professional appearance and conduct wearing a big smile daily with a bounce in her stride (sorry, no male candidates unless you can show me that you are extraordinary)

8. Someone who does not like to talk too much because I need my space and I do like quiet. I always feel that people who talk non-stop are lonely and haven’t got an outlet to release that internal energy. No hard feelings but it gives me a headache.

9. Someone who answers the phone or responds to messages in record time unless they have a very good reason not to, and the advantage of that is that you get to work from home but will need to go out SOMETIMES. I would reckon that I would need you out of the house at least once or twice a week but as we get busier, maybe more. You could also work with me together at my home if you like but I may make you sweep the floor.

10. Jobscope – very easy. Just do as I say.

I would say that you would learn a lot working for me and it would be a good way to propel your career onto the next step, or maybe with me you might not even have to. Every single employee whom I’ve had under my wing has had a bloody tough time but they have all been very grateful. They know that I was tough for a reason. We are just talking about my previous direct managers, not the engineers or other company resources reason being I wholeheartedly believe that women, especially young women, need to learn as much skills as possible as fast as possible so they can succeed. Succeed does not mean making lots of money. It could mean anything. Not everyone is driven by money. But as long as you are confident and kind, a good worker and future leader, I would have done my job as a boss.

If you know of anyone or if you are that person, please email me your CVs. Salaries will commensurate with level of experience.

**********************************************
After 7 years in London committing crimes to gain a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from The Bartlett, Mamapumpkin quit her full time job as the Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation in December 2014 due to the diagnosis of her double heart valve (aortal and mitral) regurgitation causing her to be extremely fatigued (insufficient oxygenated blood) and not being able to function as a normal human being.

By the Grace of God, she was introduced to Izumio and Super Lutein and her health has rocketed since. She now pledges that it is the best thing that ever happened to her and earns a good living by sharing the benefits of Izumio and Super Lutein to the world.

Mamapumpkin also manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. Please LIKE the page and contact her for enquiries. She has just recently started Working Women Malaysia on Facebook to offer support to all women who want career and life success.

There is also an Izumio and Super Lutein Resource Centre on Facebook that is strictly for her growing team of customers and medical advisers (yes, there are Doctors in there). This is a place where user sharing is discussed working towards everyone’s best health. And of course, you will be guided towards your business success should you wish to do the Izumio business, a very viable business.

New Fantastic Discoveries!

We are well on our way towards the second half of the year and life just cannot get better. Can it? Some have accused me of forgetting them now that I have my little Izumio business up and running but it is absolutely not true. I only have 24 hours in a day and in those hours, I am the Mother, wife, chef, driver, house cleaner, laundrette manager, kids entertainer, grocery shopper and life helper. Oh, and I also run a blog and several Facebook groups. In between managing the household chores and kids wellbeing, I give half of myself to those who need me. Mostly women who want to do something for themselves but I am traveling a journey with all my terminal patients too. Whilst some people choose to complain about their lives (or others), some are just wishing they had another day or another week to live. It is all about perspective. I cannot save the world. Of course not. But I certainly want to contribute to it’s betterment. If everyone did just a little bit, we could really do this. Unfortunately not everyone is into helping others on such a large scale, so we trudge on and fight the war for a better world. I run my life my way and you run yours your way. I don’t judge you, please do not judge me.

Apart from my 400 patients seeing improvements in their health from Izumio and Super Lutein, I am also working towards helping some women earn a regular, stable income from doing this business. It doesn’t happen overnight of course, but with my guidance, everyone can build a passive income stream with this meaningful business in many various ways (if you are truly interested, ask me. Find out. No action means no change). Instead of just blocking out the MLM stigma, ask yourselves why you would not grasp an opportunity so amazing? Nobody is being a pushy MLM sales person here. I would seriously frown upon it. Nobody is lowering themselves akin to a perceived (whatever YOUR reduced perception is) door to door salesman, insurance agent or unit trust agent. I would seriously frown upon that too because if you are doing this business that way, then you have seriously not gotten it at all.

A man who earns RM2 million and above annually from oil palm plantation profits does not need the money to do this ‘MLM’ business (Please ask for verifications if you would like some but be reminded that it works both ways. I show you mine, you show me yours. Fair?). A lady who already has several Porsches in her driveway and a few Rolexes in her dressing room also does not need the money to do an ‘MLM’ business. I for one, am not rich comparatively, but also do not have to do this. Why do I do it then? I could just go back to being a Stay-At-Home-Mom and entertain my kids every other day and do the school run and cook and clean. I would probably have to scrimp on buying a few handbags but hey, I can adapt.

Some people just don’t get it. But I cannot help them if they refuse to change their mindset and continue thinking about Izumio as an ‘MLM’ business and as a stigma. Just last week, 3 people begged me for Izumio and Super Lutein urgently because their family members had to be rushed to the hospital for various reasons. The thing is, I have advised these 3 people to start on the Izumio regime months ago knowing how ill their various family members already are. But people are such that only when push comes to shove will they take the plunge. Not smart. It could really be your own mother for father or God forbid, kid who gets critically ill one day. Any day. Why wait till then knowing that the products truly prevent strokes and critical illness? Plus I do not like to drop my entire life just to deliver products to the hospital urgently at whim. I only want to help those who help themselves. I am not a free charity. I am tired of expectations. A really good friend of mine told me to stop. Because when I help others, everyone expects me to be the life saviour. And the moment I don’t, just for one bloody day, I suddenly become the bad guy tenfold.

For now, I will just get on with it and do my own thing at my own pace. Whose loss is it if you mock Izumio? I see an opportunity and I am out to grab it. I could really make a bigger difference in this world and I WANT to do just that. If you don’t, that is up to you. But please don’t go knocking my business or judge before you even know what exactly it is about. Because you do want to have the last laugh, don’t you?

I just found out that even a Single Mom with cancer with a critically ill child gets hate mail. Are you serious? So many bitches with just too much time on their hands seriously!!! I will FIGHT for people like this to not get bullied by the masses. It infuriates me to no end that people out there could be so cruel but it really is true. I myself have experienced the wrath of bitchy women. Urgh.

Another thing that pisses me off is people who keep taking and taking and taking and not giving. Come on, let’s have some two-way traffic shall we? Do I look like Santa Claus?

*takes a deep long breathe*

On to my new fantastic discoveries then. My apologies that I had to start on a whinge.

We were invited to have breakfast at Les Deux Garcon last Sunday and it was the most glorious breakfast of my life. Hidden in Taman Desa behind the fire station of all places lies this very small bakery that makes the BEST croissants in ALL of Kuala Lumpur.

Croissant and French Loaf for close to nothing. Great value for money as opposed to my Mandarin Oriental croissant basket.

IMG_7981

Breakfast was perfect. Absolutely perfect.

IMG_7982

 

They serve Illy Coffee.

 

IMG_7983

 

Their many accolades on the wall…..

 

IMG_7984

 

This passionfruit or was it pumpkin cake was divine.

 

IMG_7985

Even better than that supposed REAL FRENCH bakery in Hartamas that just smells of cockroaches. Abbreviated as LDG, Les Deux Garcon serves a scrumptious breakfast from England, Sweden, France, America, and even Italy! Coffee was good (illy) and cakes were better! Never mind that they cost a bomb, I kept saying only Royalty could eat cakes like this but they were seriously gourmet and you just needed to have THAT kind of palate to be able to appreciate them. The breakfast was high quality and even the bread was perfect with walnuts and fruit. Everything. Everything……about the place was perfect. I even wondered if they sold frozen croissants so I could heat them up myself at home. The only setback was their location though I hear they have the very same branch in Bangsar that may or may not serve breakfast. I must go check them out again. We were seriously in HEAVEN that Sunday morning, all 8 of us.

Macadamia Heaven. OMG. I usually stay away from new flavoured cakes but these cakes were just divine.

IMG_7986

 

Of course we had to order all right? LOL!

 

IMG_7987

 

Even the Swedish muesli was good. LOL!

 

IMG_7988

 

ALL WIPED OUT.

 

IMG_7990

Another new fantastic discovery I made is headway with my Izumio business. Where others frown upon the power of the products, I am making headway with hmmm…..should I mention the Ministry? OK, looking at things politically, perhaps not. But yeah, I am now confident about taking on a hall full of oncologists. I may not be a scientist and I may not have a medical degree let alone a specialists degree, but my products are working and my patients are happy. So why not you, Mr Doctor, do the scientific experiments yourselves and work out the science while I be on my way to help more people.

*siaran tergendala*

I have noticed that I do ramble on quite a bit these days, huh? I think it is old age!! It took me 2 hours to write the above and now I have to go out!!! To be continued till I am free to touch my lovely Apple again! No, I am not Gwyneth.

Thank God it’s FRIDAY!!!!

Hola! Thank God it’s FRIDAY!!!!!! Actually, it makes no difference to me because everyday is a great day for me.

Today, I hopped onto the treadmill (yay me!) and I met up with this sexy stylish Mama, and then brought the kids to Bangsar Village for lunch as we had to get some birthday presents for a little Missy…..

Whilst driving to BV, I was moaning with the kids behind that I forgot it was Friday and that it was prayer day. The traffic was horrendous with cars parked all over the streets in Bangsar.

T2 asked: “Why are they all praying today? What are they praying for?”

Me: “Well, different people will pray for different things. Some pray for their good health, some pray for more happiness, some just pray for others to be OK!”

T2: “Do you know what I would pray for?”

Me: “What?”

T2: “I would pray for a new baby for you so I can have a baby to play with.” (just for the record, this is all due to the sexy stylish Mama’s fault because she has the most adorable baby ever and my kids and I have fallen head over heels in love with her!)

Me: “NOOOOOOOOooooooOOOOOOOoooooooooOOOOOO!!!!!!!”

*laughter heard in the car*

T2: “But why, Mommyyyyyyyyy????”

Me: “No way. Mommy is too old to have babies.”

T2: “OK, I will ask Daddy then to have a baby.”

T1: “Errrr……he is a MAN???”

T2: “Oh ya!!”

Me: “Yes, I think Daddy needs Mommy in order to make a baby.”

*more pleading for a new baby thereafter*

NO WAY!!!

IMG_8111

I also organised for one of dear team members to help me with a delivery. Now how many people would go out of their way for you? This lovely Mama did……thank you, babe!

We should have invested in ToysRus shares because we spent quite a bit in there today. By my standards anyway. We bought a big LEGO set, a Barbie mermaid that swims in water through a propeller tail (ha.ha.ha.), a new ELSA doll (what? AGAIN??? But this is a new one, Mommy. See? The clothes are all different….) and a My Little Pony soft toy Unicorn. Lucky we had a discount from it being her soon to be birthday and some old ToysRus vouchers which made it just under RM500. To me, that is just excessive for a child. But she has been very well behaved of late and she did do very well at school so deserves a treat, AND one of the presents is to motivate her into finishing one of her big fun giant workbooks so that she gets some Math practice. This is the first time ever she is doing any work out of school but I figured that she better do a little practice during the school holidays since she is quite far behind comparatively.

We had a hearty lunch and then went on to get some clothes of mine altered, got T1’s Smart Card loaded up, bought some stuff from MPH then rushed off to meet another wonderful lady who’s been a best pal since forever. Very rarely do you get lucky enough to have such sincere and genuine people touch your life and for this, I am blessed. Aly is a true gem and the amazing coincidence is that she happens to work for one of my childhood friend’s husband. Old family friends we were, my Mom had taken them sailing, lots of childhood memories staying at their home…..

We then went off to meet a lawyer friend who wanted to join my business and team. I just love it when professionals join the team but it is not to say that non-professionals cannot! It is just that I am trying to change the perception of an MLM business, when actually the Izumio and Super Lutein business isn’t even an MLM business. There are some similarities in that products are not sold at pharmacists and distributed through a network instead but it is INCOMPARABLE to other MLMs in EVERY other way. We are the highest paid people to start off with and the system is a fair one in that not just the top people make money and the bottom people can make even more money than the top people. What does that mean? It is nothing like a conventional MLM business and nowhere near a pyramid scheme (puhleeeze). It is a fantastic business and I am loving it every single day. Why? Because in just 8 months I just learnt today that I am truly earning passive income.

I chanced upon this discovery when I checked my map and discovered some strangers below me. Heck, the teams are growing so fast that I have 400 people under my organisation! And I don’t even know majority of them! I asked around and nobody knew whose of them were and THAT is truly the beauty of this business because you do not have to do everything in order to earn. The business grows organically and your bosses will help you earn more if they see you put in effort. Like fuck me, do you really think I could have earned a RM12,000 weekly income if I did this myself? No! I am great but I am not that great. I am obviously being helped by people above and below because they SEE my effort and dedication to the business. But in the very same vein, I am also helping some of my team members to earn more passive income so that everyone wins. You just do not know what you are missing if you think this is a conventional and typical MLM business because trust me, it isn’t. You don’t have MY boss. Plus there are SO MANY WAYS to do this business.

Everyone assumes (and makes an ass of themselves) that you have to invest money. True, in business you do have to invest money in order to start a business, right? But here, we have options. SO MANY OPTIONS like you wouldn’t believe. What are they? Ask me!!! Don’t just assume!!!

Th kids spent some time at the library today and got to eat chocolate croissants. They have been on a one week holiday and after our little holiday to the beach, I have been playing board games with them every morning and going out and about with them everywhere. It’s been a fun 10 day holiday and soon they will be back at school practising for their annual concert, and then oh Gosh! Annual HOLIDAY!!! What am I going to do with them??? That reminds me, I better start doing something about Japan…..and maybe do some research for Sydney too since the kids are coming along.

I end this post with prayers for the sick and the suffering because every day I enter my Facebook groups to catch up with my sick friends and pray so damn hard that everyone heals from their open heart surgeries and what not. There is a huge group of sick friends in the US and they have almost become my family now because we are all experiencing the same health worries. I would introduce Izumio to them but I don’t want to seem like I’m just doing it for the business, you know? I don’t do that. I will only introduce it to very, very close friends if I knew they were ill or down in a rut but other than that, it is really take it or leave it. That sucks because when a friend comes and tells you that another friend died last week, I’d feel the crap. Like why didn’t I introduce Izumio to her? Why??? It could have saved her life. Shish. Some of the perils of this business but mostly it is great.

Being Your Own Boss

There’s nothing like being your own boss doing anything you want anytime, anywhere, anyhow.

devil-wears-prada-stills29

BUT.

It is bad when you are a lazy ass like me. Oh God, is it bad…..when my former principal, Mrs Bhupalan told me that Procrastination is the thief of time, she had a darn good reason for telling it to me. Instead of working, I am just doing everything else BUT work. I am already earning a wonderful salary, why do I have to work??? In an entire week, maybe I work a few hours but kaching-kaching, I could use July’s salary to walk into Hermes but. Why? Because it comes back more tenfold. I have been doing this all my life. It is a proven formula. Of course if you do it with the intention of getting back, then perhaps it won’t come back! But if you do it with a sincere heart without expectations, trust me, God is always watching.

So here I am instead of working. Heh.

Today, I got on the treadmill – BOOYAH!!! I am on a weight loss challenge, did I tell you? If I lose 10 kg by the end of October, I receive a prize worth a few thousand RM. Go me!!! Exercising is not the problem so much. Staying away from food is. How I love food. LOVE!!! Plus my friend recently bought me these original milk condensed milk tins. Oh. My. God. HEAVEN.

T1 finally finished her 1,000 piece WHAT IF jigsaw puzzle this morning from Ravensburger. Santa Claus brought it for her as she had been wanting it ever since we saw it in London. By golly, FINALLY!!!!!! I have been nagging her to complete it as she was doing it on my dining table and it has been 5 months!!! To the Hub’s credit, he helped her tremendously or we’d be waiting till next year to get our dining table back – the freebie dining table that my ex-boss gave me.

A14fZ20N2sL._SL1500_ imageoutput.php

On the top is what you see on the box but on the bottom is what it actually is when you complete the puzzle. It is bloody hard!!!! I gave up. NO PATIENCE AT ALL.

T2 learnt to swim on her own finally as well at the beach over Raya. What an achievement that was. I am so, so proud of her. No more water wings, bye-bye floaties, sayonara water tubes. Did I tell you that despite not being able to read (although she has just picked this up), she managed to WOW us with straight As for her final exam? We were expecting her to fail all her papers and even re-sit Reception since we knew how far behind she was but lo and behold, she made it.

T1 has also started writing a book. OMG. I am SO excited about this project of hers because I did not prompt it and she is wanting to do this all by her own initiative. Leave kids be to their own devices and independence and you get resourceful, creative kids. Organise activities for them everyday and they are always led and taught, typical school fashion of learning. They won’t know what to do when there is nothing to do.

I am really excited because English is T1’s worst subject at school and not only that, she had very little interest in it but suddenly now she wants to write a book. I am anxiously awaiting the results of this years Royal Commonwealth Essay Competition that she submitted earlier this year which I thought was her best effort yet. T1 has been participating in the Royal Commonwealth Essay Competition since 2013 and actually won a Silver Award for that year amongst over 11,000 participants around the world and being the YOUNGEST participant as well. She was actually underaged to participate but what the heck, we took our chances not expecting to win anything at all so you can imagine our surprise and pride when she did. This is a recap of her entry essay at the age of 8.

The next year (which was last year), she participated again amongst 9,000 kids this time and STILL WON. But a notch lower and she got a bronze award. She was really, really disappointed. The essay was about Teamwork. Mind you, that was the year she was home schooled giving her LOADS of time to work on her essay YET!!!! Lazy girl (like her Mama) chose to finish it off at the 11th hour leaving me stressed as I was the one who had to scan it and email it over to ensure they received it. Bloody hell. I need to go find that essay and post it up for you to read. So yeah, I am so curious if she has a chance in winning anything this year.

She also recently wrote a good essay for her final year exam at school and scored 29 out of 30. Even I (being her greatest critic) thought it was a great essay and that’s saying a lot. For a 10 year old, it really wasn’t bad at all. So much for all my lost hopes for her being a writer. PHEW!!!

I’ve been really bored these days. What else? Too lazy to work that is. I actually have tons of work to do but I keep pushing it aside and playing instead. OK, I did take the girls out for lunch today and we met up with a very, very old swimming friend from RSGC who now lives in Hong Kong. She also went to UCL with me and it was great catching up with her. Last week, I overdosed my childhood friend from San Francisco with Izumio stories to death but because she is a true friend, I know damn sure she would still always be my friend no matter what. Unlike some of the part time friends I have. When things fail to go their way, they ditch me and bitch. Lalalalalala……*flips hair*

On a serious note, the people who know me, know me; and there are very few of those people because I am not an easy person to penetrate. Sure, I may tell you my life story because I truly have nothing to hide (eg I have not fucked around, I have not killed, I have not tried to kill myself, I have not been anorexic, I have not cheated, etc.) and my slate is clean but if you really wanted to penetrate me (Erm, unless you were Robert Downey Junior, I might consider?), you would have to stick around for a very long time. Most just give up and that is fine with me because I practise non-attachment.

Oh, so my Hong Kong friend suggested Intermittent Fasting and said it really worked. Just for 2 days, I need to eat very little, and then for the rest of the week, as per normal again. Sounds too good to be true but let’s see how we progress with my 10 Izumio a day plan first. I am also dying for some Unicorn Pressed Juices which I think are the BEST juice in all of KL at the moment (apart from my own home made ones of course, expect that I am too lazy AGAIN to make them). Mind you, I have tried majority of the brands out there in KL for juices so thank you, Paik Ling, for introducing them to me. I LOVE THEM!!

T2 is having her 6th birthday next week and I am supposed to organise a small birthday party. Fish! I want to make it really special for her so I am going to buy a ton of balloons to blow up the night before (we have done this for T1 before, filled the entire bedroom with balloons) and decorate the place beautifully so she wakes up to magic. She is such our little princess. I haven’t figured out the menu yet but she wants some Lego set and a Barbie set for her birthday (oh gosh…) and because we love her so much, we will just get it. She has been making me beautiful cards being so incredibly sweet and has generally been a very good girl. If you ever have a devil for a child, trust me then that it DOES get better. I used to want to kill her. Not anymore. Heh.

T1 has started to get some serious zits on her face from entering puberty. I cannot believe it and I refuse to believe it. She definitely has her father’s genes because I never had a zit problem as a kid. Hers is REALLY BAD!!! Poor baby. I am going to start her on an Izumio regime to calm it down. Hopefully it will work.

How did I get from being your own boss to rambling on about the kids? Oh, I am procrastinating…..that’s why. Just keep writing and writing…..anything…..as long as I do not have to face my work.

The Hubs miraculously went to get a haircut at Grace Salon last week for a cool price of RM85 and he actually looks good!!! Usually he goes to the Indian barber for a fraction of that and comes out looking like a coconut. He has been very busy as usual but making an effort to spend more time with me (now that I am my own boss and have more time to merajuk). We go for breakfast every morning after sending the girls early to school at 7am an then he sends me home to my treadmill. Bleh.

What is in store for August then now that July is almost coming to an end? What say I actually do some work. Uhuh. Kick that lazy ass into high gear and go all out to get some results? To be fair to me, and my lady boss fully agrees, I deserve a break. I have worked so damn hard (not as hard as I used to when I was working in corporate but still as a non-employed person, I have worked hard because dealing with people is HARD WORK!) that I deserve to chill a bit.

I have been putting off visiting the Doctor and am very nervous about seeing them again because although I am feeling all fine and dandy, you just never know do you? I had a lung cancer patient who was diagnosed this year and he had ZERO symptoms. Yet he’s been diagnosed Stage 4 cancer. It fucking sucks. I have joined a Facebook group for heart patients and it is depressing. Yet there is a lot of support, but nevertheless depressing especially when some are just fighting so hard to stay alive. I guess I’m just not ready to go just yet. There was a debate about who dies more, cancer patients or heart patients? OK, moving along…..

Enough of my crap. Who can I buy flowers for this week?

Being on Holiday

Being on holiday is the greatest thing on Earth for me because it is then that I can work my best. I know, I know. It sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Work on holiday? Hell, when I was in Europe for 6 weeks last year, what did you think I was doing? I was working!!! And when I was on a boat once on the way out on a fishing trip, I was also on the phone organising an interview with a potential engineer to join the company! I kept telling him, if we get cut off, it means I have lost coverage as I am on a boat. To make things more challenging, he was from abroad so it was not a very clear line at all. The things I do in my life, I just love it.

IMG_7648  IMG_7645

So yes, I am working but it sure doesn’t feel like work, does it? I can work anywhere I want, any time, and any how, with any food and drink, with any scenery, in any position and in whatever I choose to wear. And I can work however long to however short I want too. I set my own deadlines. The best thing is that I am working non-stop because I love it. There is nothing like being passionate in your very own business.

In the past, I would work a lot too but that work got me recognition. Of course if you are a star performer, your boss will notice you isn’t it? So I claim to fame very quickly in every company I join but I don’t think the renumeration matches the amount of effort that I put in. Although I made some money, the company made even more money and the percentage I got for that despite being pivotal in its success was minuscule. I can tell you that this sure as hell beats working for someone else. I am my own boss now and I love it.

I need to clean up my home in KL and make it more work conducive. At the moment it is just one big mess. Michelle Mone (my new idol) says that if your drawers aren’t tidy, your business wouldn’t soar. Boy, do I believe her – LOL! So yes, that is my priority next week. I am going to be ruthless and throw every toy out. TOO BAD.

Although it breaks my heart that those expensive ELC alphabet machine toys have to go as well, what the heck. Better now than never. I have nobody to give them to nor the time to sell them so whooooooosh, out they go.

I had a lovely facial and massage today at the spa. It cost a bomb but I kept telling myself it’s OK. Don’t be so stingy. This is only just over 10% of what you earned last week (the company, Naturally Plus, pays me weekly – currently about RM5,000 weekly and increasing when you total up all my accounts). Give the dying hotel a chance. But I’d much, much rather give cash tips to the staff instead of the damn hotel. I have learnt from my boss recently in generous tipping. In the past, RM10 for me is an average tip (let’s not compare tips in Europe and USA, OK?) but ever since I saw my boss tip RM60 at a restaurant, it’s got me thinking. Just imagine the joy that the other party has. What is money after all? Easy come, easy go as my Mom has always said. Mom was the most generous person in the whole wide world.

And whilst I start to practise this habit, I am praying why not the multi-billionaires of the world just fling me a couple of million, right? Uhuh. Why not indeed.

Recently I have made some incredible offers to some women but it all sounds too good to be true. Well, the thing is sometimes you just have to take a risk and believe. Like if I were to give you RM1,000 and not ever expect anything back, believe it!!!! I even considered giving much more away once but thank God, the Hubs stopped me in my tracks. Because that would have been a disaster. Already some of the people I have given free money to have stabbed me in the back, can you imagine the hurt that I would have had to endure if I had given more? Forget it. And these ladies are probably bitching about how I need to buy people. Too hilarious.

I learn this from my Mom. What goes around comes around. And when practised, it really does come true. Thank you, Mama.

We have a terminal cancer patient whose sister read my blog one day and decided to try our products. She wasn’t skeptical and negative like many and just trusted me. It’s a good thing she did because the journey has been so rewarding for the patient. She is feeling much better and not just that, she has worked hard to make the products affordable and because of her commitment and trust with us, my boss gave her over RM10,000 worth of products. And a trip to Japan. AND I have promised this lady that once she is in the all clear, I am taking her on a cruise ship for a holiday. That’s our pact. Financial freedom is a wonderful thing indeed. It allows me such freedom. And this is what drives me to work damn hard. So I can give back to the causes that I want to.  Women and children. Why waste my talent.

I am rounding up more and more women to join me in this business. It is a great business because where else can you achieve such a fast income rise? The work is not difficult once you have confidence in the products. It is when you are still testing the product and feeling skeptical that it is difficult. Oh, and I must mention that you would need confidence in yourself too. If not, I will talk you to death until you start seeing the light of confidence within yourself. We were all made the same with 2 hands and 2 legs and we all have a vagina and a brain. But everyone has that special something and that is why you are you! Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you are less than amazing and don’t ever let anyone make you feel like shit. Do NOT give anyone the permission to bring you down. Take charge of your own destiny, ladies. Take action and make a difference in your own life and in the lives of others. Or drift into the direction where the wind takes you and continue with your current life.

I have friends who are happy the way they are. They say they are and they say they do not want to go anywhere. This is because they do not want to put in the work. In a sense they are selfish but I really cannot fault them because sometimes it is lack of self-esteem that makes them not want something bigger. They don’t think they deserve something bigger. Some are afraid of failure. If they try, they might not make it. And some are just plain fucking lazy. Those are the real selfish ones because they are so capable and know exactly what needs to be done yet. If every one of us could make a difference, just imagine how much better this world could be? JUST IMAGINE.

So I did a lot of planning this holiday on what I needed to get done, designed that long task list which included little projects that I needed accomplished for this business, then set up a schedule for my team because they need my time too. I also have a plan for my own education and improvements laid out (and I am so excited about this because you girl who kept harping on about the Izumio factory, I actually approached the UNIVA Capital Chairman to enquire about it!!!). And last but not least, I have my incredibly wonderful family who keep me grounded and real, who make me laugh every single day without fail and who support me like nobody ever will. I owe them my life.

It really feels like a switch has turned on after I attended the National Achievers Congress. I know people who frown upon it and would never waste their time attending such an event and quite honestly, I used to be one of those people. Why go watch Anthony Robbins talk when I already know everything, right? Wrong. I was already happy where I was earning a good salary, more than my peers. What is the big deal? The big deal is that it will take you to the next level.

There is always something to learn, peeps. Always. You may think you know everything, but you don’t. And your arrogant attitude alone is going to set you up for failure. When I was in my mid 20s, I thought how nice it was if I could earn RM20,000 per month. And then it happened. And trust me, when it does, you WILL want more. Then in my late 30s, I thought how nice if I could earn RM40,000 per month. And then it happened. And now, I am thinking how nice it would be if I earned RM100,000 per month. Whilst I can already see this happening, I am wondering if I should not be aiming for more. When I tell some of my friends, they think I am crazy. But it’s real. So, so real. And thanks to Naturally Plus, I am going to get there.

There is much work to be done. As I battle my way through oncologists of the country, I am sure I will win. If American Doctors are already noticing the products, come on, it’s not Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, OK? This is serious business.

We are here to save lives.

The MMPK Weight Loss Reality

Uhuh. It’s called the MMPK Weight Loss Reality.

Let me tell you a little about my body history.

I was born skinny. So skinny I was mistaken as a Giant’s pencil. Wait. I was like T2!!! Just blow a whiff of air in my direction and I’d lose balance. Then puberty hit and by the time I was 14, I was c.h.u.b.b.y. Strangely though, this puppy fat very quickly turned into a lithe, athletic but petite frame of muscle. I’ll let you know that I was a State Swimmer and a school sprinter. I was the yellow house girl’s captain, very athletic at 42kg.

When I entered the work force, I was still a slim 45kg but by the time I found my one and only true love, HE made me balloon to 55kg!!! I was SO happy with him. WTF. And when you’re happy, you’re too busy enjoying life eating all the good food in the world. When T1 came along, I put on another 10kg. And when T2 came along, I put on another 10kg. So you know where we’re headed here. I’m now the only woman in the world heavier than her husband.

Action required.

IMG_7798

The MMPK Weight Loss Reality:

10 squats the moment I get out of bed. 10 squats whilst I brush my teeth.

A big breakfast. Anything and everything I want. Best time of the day, my routine date with the Hubs.

Lunch and Dinner – NO CARBS.

All Day – NO SUGAR.

At Home – NO MORE LIFTS. Always take the stairs 4 floors up no matter how many things I’m carrying. (Except Izumio)

Before Shower – 10 squats. 20 pushups. 50 jumping jacks.

That’s it. A simple, realistic for me kind of lifestyle. I shall report back in 2 weeks what results this has produced. No starving rabbit diets, no strenuous overpowering workouts. Just living in moderation.

Who wants to join me on the MMPK Weight Loss Reality? You only have to commit for 2 weeks till 31 July.

To the girl at the NAC yesterday…….

I spent the last 3 days at the National Achievers Congress (my first time) and must say that despite not seeing my entire family for 3 full days and nights, I am glad that I went. It was a fantastic experience. I definitely learned a lot of tools that I could use to help more people, make more money and expand my business. No regrets. In fact, I encourage all of you to go because it is not just about money and business. It is about your life. It forces you to look within and I’m glad to be reminded that I am incredibly lucky. Somehow, God has blessed me abundantly despite the odds. I am so, so blessed. Thank you.

Not everyone shares the same fate. Pause.

Tangent.

Lizzie Velasquez is only 26 years old, did you know that??? Holy Mother of God!!! For such a young girl, she is powerful and inspiring. She blew me away because she had that maturity and projected self-esteem. I am so proud of her parents and her. These are the real people we should all look up to seriously. THEY are the ones truly worthy of praise and accolades and incredible respect. There’s nothing like hearing them talk in real life answering impromptu questions where you can see and feel it is from the heart. I cannot wait to read her books and watch her movie and I so wanted to stand up in front of 2,000 people just to tell her how much she was so brave and powerful and amazing and inspiring I thought she was and that I would ensure my girls knew her story and look up to her too.

maxresdefault

There was this other girl from the audience that asked Lizzie how she coped with her struggles and whilst she asked, she was breaking down. My heart went to her instantly. She was so far behind that I could not see her but we could all hear her voice. My prayers went out to her last night and I regret not just getting off my seat to check out who she was, just so I could give her a hug. Sigh. I will trust in God to protect her in this instance but I have a letter for her and for anyone else who needs a hug.

To the girl at the NAC yesterday,

Firstly, I would like to commend you on how BRAVE you were in standing up to address Lizzie amongst a crowd of thousands. How many women who are struggling and are in a dark place dare do that? Most just don’t even get out of bed and cover their heads under their duvets most of the day or hide in the cupboards. I know. I’ve been there. But you, you got out of bed and attended the NAC. Good on you!

Sometimes, life becomes so cruel that you feel you have nothing else, and the reality is that sometimes, there really IS nothing else. Your man leaves you for another woman, your children think you are the worst mother on this planet, you have no money or worse are in debt with people chasing you all over for money, sometimes through no fault of yours, your family abandons you, your closest friends are now your furthest friends (nobody wants to be near problems!), your name is tarnished in the media, your closest most loved relative dies, you get diagnosed with cancer, you failed all your exams, your boyfriend tells you he no longer wants to be with you, your Mom is always calling you names and comparing you to others, you name it. So many things could go wrong in a person’s life that it becomes difficult to cope especially when they come all at once. It is overwhelming. I’ve been there too.

So this is what I have to say to you. Despite the fact that you have lost EVERYTHING, you THINK you have lost everything, but deep down inside of you, there is still a seed of love. You need to find it because God put it in there for a reason. We all have it. If you cannot find it, let me help you find it for God’s sake. And once you have found it, learn to grow it.

Because even with NOTHING, that seed of love will get you through anything and everything. Do not give up because you were placed in this world for a reason. You may not know what that reason is, but first go find that seed of love. It could be embedded so deep that it is hard to locate but I assure you it is there.

I am currently holding the hands of a few women in despair and desperation and I am determined to get them out of their miserable holes. I can hold your hand too. Please think about it. You have a purpose. I can help you find your purpose if you struggle with it. You are not allowed to take your life because that would be the greatest sin. Life is difficult but nobody said it would be easy. If you push through and come out of this hole, just imagine what you COULD do?

You are a bright, shining star just waiting to explode out to show the world your true self. I promise you. Fight. Fight with all your might. Fight your demons. Fight the rest of the world who make you feel you are worthless and nothing. You are not.

You are something. You are something AMAZING!!! Please do this for me if not even you (for now). You can get out of this bad zone you are in right now. You just need to find that seed of love first and we will work it all out. Please.

Giving you the biggest hug from one woman to another.

Throwback – T1 at 2 years old at my Mom’s 5th year with cancer

I was going through some old posts today following suit my dearest Makcik friend, and the floodgates burst open as I reminisced time with my little T1 and time with my beloved Mama. My Mom was really the best Mom ever, I love her so very much. She gave us anything and everything we wanted whenever we went shopping. She was always available whenever we had a problem and because she had lived so much, always gave us the best advice. She never pressured us to do anything and she was just perfect as a Mom. Really.

Here is one of my oldest posts when I first started as a blogger in 2006 :

t1-and-nana

T1 placing flowers for my mother to find when she wakes up. My mother is ill and easilly tired. She is also T1’s most favourite person in the whole wide world because she gets her way with her Nana ALL THE TIME. I represent the link between my daughter and my mother and moments like this are very, very special.

The National Achiever’s Congress 2015

lizzie-velasquez-800

This year, I will have the honour of meeting Lizzie Velasquez, brutally called the ugliest girl in the world. I cannot wait. Running the Izumio Business is like being a Homeschooler. There is enough free time to do whatever I want, wherever I want in, in whatever way I want. Apart from picking the girls up from school and making sure they stay alive, I pretty much am in total control of my life. I even have a good breakfast with the Hubs every morning now. It is our early morning ritual after sending the girls to school whilst we explore the various new eateries in our neighbourhood. It gets expensive sometimes but we are dating again……..so of course we deserve it.

One of our Naturally Plus leaders, Mr Koji Ikematsu, will be presenting at the National Achiever’s Congress this year and I cannot wait to see him too. I would never have the guts to address a few thousand people like that ever. I can barely survive a room filled with 30 people and to think I used to get the lead roles at my school musicals and plays. Hmm.

I get inspired by people like that. I love hearing their stories. Everyone has a story. Some people have been through a lot an have so much to share. Some people are still living on a different planet. Some think they have been through a lot but comparably it is only their individual perception, and some have boring straightforward lives (not a bad thing). The thing is, it matters not what your life has been or was before. What matters is what you are going to do with it now moving forward. Where are you going? What do you want to do? What do you want to leave behind? How do you want to be remembered? Do you even care? There is so much to do and you could really make a difference if you wanted to. But do you want to? Therein lies your motivation to reflect internally. What is your true purpose? Most people just wile away their lives then die. But you. YOU could do something.

Just saying.

Happy Hump Day!

Happy Hump Day! Exams are over for both girls and BANG! The school invoice reaches our study desk and I start palpitating. The Hubs, as always just doesn’t want to open it. He’s always in denial. I already warned him earlier this year, this is a double year because they have 7 months of one year and then the new year starts again in September. And although I have started earning some money with my little Izumio business, RM10,000 monthly is hardly enough to support our expenses (ahem, before you judge me, please know that a fraction of my earnings actually come back to me). We can no longer have the lifestyle we are used to till I bump up my earnings a notch higher. I am aiming for RM100,000 per month and I am dead serious. I think that only with that kind of disposable income can you make a significant difference in the world. Watch me.

Both girls had a playdate today. It started off with T1 asking if she could invite her school friend over. Then the little one followed suit to ask if she could have her school friend over too. So both invited their friends over and Mommy was free to cook  a glorious spinach quiche in my cast iron beauty, and blog!

Absolute BLISS!!!!!

I delivered 12 boxes of Izumio to one of my regular customers nearby this morning, then picked my millionaire boss up for breakfast to learn about people and the world. He told me about how this woman tried to take advantage of him since he had a reputation of helping the poor and helping Single Moms make a decent living, etc. You know how it is, when people think you are rich or have a bit more money, they start gluing themselves to you (and try making a fast buck out of you). I can only imagine the number of people who are trying to lick his ass. Some people will say, “Please, I do not care about money.” Fair enough, but I’d say 95% of the population does care about money whether they are willing to admit it or not. I, for one, LOVE money!!! And I’m not afraid to admit it. Money and love makes the world go round, yo!

So recently I had some drama with some ladies (OMG, what’s new?!). I’m numb already. I’m busy healing lives, no more time for drama. If you bring me drama, I’ll just press the NEXT button. No more mercy no matter who you are. Call me cold, ruthless, call me whatever you want and see if I give a shit? Most likely not. There are more important lives at stake. Please go do some charity.

Time is passing by so fast, I can hardly believe it. This year has just gone SWOOSH!!! Despite the fact that my beloved Mom is no longer physically here and with my brother abroad, we have a lot of extra hours in the week yet, they are filled to the brim I kid you not! And so much traveling!!! Shit. It’s already JULY!!!! That’s the second half of the year!!!

This month, I have the beach. Next month, I have Kota Bharu (and God knows where else my boss invites me to, he will randomly say, “Oh, I’m going to Manila next week, wanna come? Or “Join me in Dubai!” Or “You wanna come with me to the US or not??”). Gosh, if only I could!!! But I have kids and no help, so more often than not, I will smile sweetly and wish upon a star. September, we have guests from abroad visiting, then October I am off to Japan with Naturally Plus to visit the Super Lutein factory amongst basking naked in a Japanese Onsen (you WISH, ladies!!! You have to get me awesomely drunk first!!!), and in November, we do Melbourne, Sydney (where we have our gala night at the Sydney Opera House, where no other private entity has ever managed to get approvals for to hold a private function!) and hop over to New Zealand with the kids to appreciate the Glaciers (something my boss insists) and then in December, we do Niseko. I think I will just chill ALL of 2016 and go nowhere.

But THAT is what the Naturally Plus business is about. Traveling, helping people, making friends, enjoying life, eating great food, learning about the world; and all this whilst giving you a meaningful life, financial freedom and flexibility like you will never believe. And please, do not compare the Naturally Plus EVER to any MLM business out there because it is beyond comparison. I swear to God, all those who have participated in Amway, Nuskin, E-Excel, Elken, USANA, they admit it. Our products are far superior and the business compensation plan works. It is not a pyramid scheme, it’s not like a conventional MLM businesses where only a select small percentage at the top make it, we do not have to buy monthly purchases, we do not have timelines and pressure, and for anyone who used to do this business but failed, all I can say is, you weren’t with the right leader. Products didn’t work? You were not advised with the proper dosage. Plain and simple. Come work with me and I’ll freaking show you how to do it. Bring me a Doctor and I will gun him down. Medical reports don’t lie!

I am so ludicrously sold on these products that nobody, NOBODY can prove to me that the products don’t work or that they cannot do this business. How come? Because it all boils down to teamwork. Somewhere in my team, you will fit in and I will help you to make an income. It is my greatest pride in helping all my girls earn an income. Really, really, really. If you have been a long time reader and haven’t yet sussed it out, I am a strong advocate for women and children which doesn’t mean men can’t join me. But seriously though, I think I intimidate them. *smacks head*

This is not bait. Just so you are clear. This is a real business that everyone can do at their own pace, and guess what, you can even transfer the business (or earnings) down to your children in the distant future!!! Think of all the people you could help and save. The products prevent people from going blind from cataracts and glaucoma. They have improved short sightedness and long sightedness. Geez, they have brought cancer patient markers down to non-cancer without chemotherapy. What more do you want?

The common question people ask is if it was such a miracle product (which it is not, it is just pure nutrition, not magic), then why does the entire world not know about it yet and why are hospitals not using them as a cure?

Firstly, it is not a cure. It is excellent nutrition. Like everything else, if you put goodness into your body, your cells will have a better chance of healing. So we do not claim for our products to cure you (even though they do improve an unbelievable amount of ailments) and we do not want you to purchase these products if you are not committed to follow the recommended dosage. Why waste my time and your money? If you are keen to see your body heal, you need to ask yourself seriously if you are able to follow through. Otherwise, don’t bother. Please continue to suffer.

Secondly, Doctors here in Malaysia and in the US (that I personally know of) ARE starting to wonder what the heck these ‘supplements’ are. Because their patients are healing from it and in fact, several times over, they themselves have agreed to administer it to the patients. We have over 50 Doctors in our team. They obviously belong to the real Doctors category, not the ones who keep prescribing you expensive chemotherapy when you do not need it. Strangely, we have 2 Doctors on file that have cancer but are not prescribing themselves chemotherapy. Hmm.

Thirdly, what would happen to all the huge multi-billion dollar pharmaceuticals and money making Doctors (Government included) if there really was a product that helped patients feel better, heal, be free from pain and suffering? Just think for a minute.

My Ipoh friend (bless her) said something that hit the spot today. She said, “Not many people that can earn from a chair. I am a true earn from chair Mom. You are too!”  Alhamdullilah for that Snow White beauty that introduced me to this life saving business that I can earn from a chair. Even my meetings are from webinars or Skype calls. Technology is amazing.

Tomorrow I am meeting up with my girlfriends to organise an event and my BFF from San Francisco is down in town!!! So excited!!! We have planned an all nighter and I will give her Izumio for the next day to function despite the lack of sleep and BOOM, my USA business will fly………..

Life is sweet. I have not forgotten all those who are suffering and my prayer list is increasing. Have faith. HE always delivers.

Crap. I just realised that I just cannot stop talking about Izumio, can I??? LOL!!! I’m sorry!!!!

SPAM on the blog

I have spam on the blog and I hate it. Because it commands a humble readership, spammers keep attaching themselves here and I do not know how to freaking get rid of them! Is it the theme? Is it the bad links? How do they do it? I HATE unethical people. If you want to link here, just ask me direct and I will say yes or no. It is my blog after all and I have every right but to spam me illegally just to make a profit out of my hard work is wrong. May you rot in hell, go spam someone else and leave me alone.

T2 got an A!!!

Alhamdullilah. My little girl came home that day all excited that she’d gotten an A for her Mandarin paper, something that we totally did not expect. She had exams this last week and we did NOTHING for revision. The other papers aren’t back yet but we were expecting her to either fail all her papers or just get by with Cs or Ds (is D still a fail or pass?) and even prepared to put aside money for her to repeat the entire Reception Year! Well, it was only last week or something that she started reading a little more! So our expectations were very valid.

But when she came home excitedly telling me that she got an A, I asked her if she copied her friend. HAHAHAHA!!! I know. I am such a HORRIFIC Mother. She said no, she didn’t. Then I asked her if the teacher marked correctly? She couldn’t answer that of course. I asked her if her paper was really difficult or really easy? She said it was really easy!!! LOL!!! When I finally saw the 9 page paper, I thought shit. Even I couldn’t do the paper. OK. For all the fees that I pay, at least she’s learning something 😛

I feel so bad as a Mother because when T1 comes back telling me about her getting 92%, my immediate response is, “So what happened?”

OMG!!! LOL!!! Kill me please, somebody!!!

Why is it that we have zero expectation from T2 and so much expectation from T1??? It isn’t fair on my precious T1 at all!!!! But still I do it. It’s just that she is naturally bright and has excelled throughout and even now, I do not chase her to study because she already does it herself, yet 92% is not good enough for her Mama.

To be honest, of course it is good enough for me. I really don’t care so much what kind of results they get but I love teasing them. What is important is that they are well adjusted kids, happy as Heaven, have high levels of Emotional Quotient and can hold their own when I am not around. They should have enough skills to earn a living, live a purposeful life, and have the ability and resource to help others. Selfish gains are just not allowed in our vocabulary at home. So really, we can give all the As to everyone else and it will be OK. But my little monkey still got an A.

Living a Happy Life

Living a Happy Life is easy when you have the help of great people around you. What more when you have a loving family who is always behind you 500% of the way. I am so blessed and I never take it for granted yet there are people who are not happy with me and for me for some reason or other. If I was perfect, I’d be Mother Theresa, so yes please, you can continue to judge me for my failings. I am not perfect. I am full of drama and if you cannot stand drama, stop watching Hollywood movies at all. Kan? After handling last year’s disappointments, I am much more resilient in handling this year’s disappointments. It is truly no water off my back.

When I help, I help. I have no expectations. Someone asked me yesterday if she should help another person and if that person could be trusted. I asked her what her motivation was? If you want to help, you just help. God is watching all the time. You don’t help or give people stuff with an agenda. You help because you genuinely want to help, and if that person in turn stabs you in the back (oh, trust me, this has happened only a few times to me), so be it. You cannot control that. But if you were to prejudge every single person you want to help, how is that possible?? You will never know who will turn around and stab you, seriously. Not even the people whom you thought you could trust, even they could turn around to stab you. So no point worrying if you can trust that person or not. If you want to help, just help. If not, then don’t help. Life is simple. Do not complicate it.

People always forget the amount of energy I put into them but I practice non-dependence and non-attachment. When you can reach a level of non-attachment, you only move forward with your purpose and anything that crosses your path to cut you or push you over, will be a slight trip. But never a hole that you fall into. So learn to practise non-attachment.

Living a Happy Life is easy. My joy apart from my family, comes from being able to raise women to higher ground. I am on a mission currently to bring in a monthly RM15,000 side income to half a dozen families, RM10,000 to another half a dozen families and RM5,000 monthly to another few struggling Moms. With my own earnings, I will give a third to help others, a third to my kids savings and a third to my own shopping indulgences or towards our holidays. Sorry, Hubby!!!

So ask yourselves, what is missing from your life that is disallowing you from living a happy life? This is YOUR life and you only have one. What is your purpose in this life? What makes you happy? You have every right to make yourself happy so what are you waiting for? Why are you not taking CONTROL of your own life and making it a happy one? What is your blocker, what is stopping you from being happy?

Whatever it is, I can help you get there if you are willing to open up. I am an experienced life coach and have helped many people get out of their ruts. When you live a life of purpose, you gain perspectives and with perspectives, you can open up your minds to bigger possibilities. The world is so big yet so small. Every problem becomes less of a problem if you know how to address and approach it. Your happiness becomes more of my happiness, and that is what I currently do for a living.

Creating a million smiles.

The Mobile Worker

I am the mobile worker. People don’t believe me when I tell them that my job is actually just a communications job and all I do is communicate via WhatsApp and Messenger. Serious! The only time I go out to meet people is because my team members need me to meet their customers. I do all my business deals online and the beauty of that is I could work literally from home on my bed or anywhere I want in my home all day wearing anything I want too (like being naked!), OR move around about town with my lappie like today. I had to go to the bank to loan the Hubs some money (hahaha, guess I am richer now, huh?) because the credit card was at an all time high this month, even higher than when we went to Europe for 6 weeks!!! Stress or what? I went to 3 banks today because I had to transfer the money as the online facility did not allow such a big sum, then go to another bank to check on some ASB and ASD stuff, then finally to another bank to bank in T1’s savings from her pocket money. She gets RM75 per week every week and she saves a good portion of it. In fact when she gave me RM390 this morning, I asked her to calculate the total amount she has received so far since the beginning of the year and she went to check her calendar and told me it was RM1,700 plus. I then made her calculate mentally how many percent she had saved out of all the money given to her and what percentage was spent. She got it right, good girl. I cannot remember any of the Math I did at 10 but I do not think I was doing percentages but maybe we did, I cannot remember.

Being the mobile worker today led me to several banks for banking but I also sat in a few cafes and got to eavesdrop on other people because they spoke so loudly. The first was at San Francisco Coffee at Millennium where a couple who were colleagues were flirting BIG TIME. A local Chinese girl who had long black hair and a solid body in a cream dress with a black belt was laughing so hard, laughing and laughing, clearly enjoying her long lunch with her large Australian companion. He in turn was showing off discussing men who only looked for hot chicks but what was the point? Sometimes he sees a hot chick and the moment he starts communicating with her, she is the most boring thing ever and he feels like he is talking to a wall. That made her head swell. They had loads to talk about relationships and it was cute listening to their long lunch. There was a lot of laughs so I reckon he’d be able to get into her pants soon. Maybe. I’ll give her the benefit of doubt as I always do all women.

Later I continued my work at another Cafe whilst waiting for the girls to finish school, just because. There I sat beside 4 huge burly Scottish men I think they were. It was extremely interesting listening to what 4 adult men talk about, foreigners at that. They gossiped about women, yes, I kid you not. They did so too. They spoke about movies. They spoke about the restaurant menu and places they’d been in KL. I wasn’t listening to the entire conversations but those were the things I picked up on. I cannot believe 4 grown up men talked about other women!! Chis! So men DO talk about women……Please take not, girls. If you give yourself to a boy too early, he WILL be sharing that information with his best buddy. Only a select few don’t talk. Those who are extremely private.

It was a pleasant day overall. The only drawback about my day out was having to spend money. When you hang out at Cafes, that is expected. Next time I will just go to the local club instead where it is much cheaper to hang out and has WIFI too. It is fun being a mobile worker. I get to go anywhere, anytime with anyone. But mostly, I try to stay away from people because I love being alone. Less drama. I keep the simple people around me for daily whatsapp chats and that is about it. I don’t need much. I just mind my own business and get on with my work in helping people heal.

Helping Women get rid of their Anger

In the past few days, I’ve noticed that the people around me have been in a rather bitchy mood and me, myself am feeling bitchy. Not towards everyone but just irritating people. In this people business, it is inevitable that I deal with people on a daily basis. Even if I don’t physically meet them, I am still bound by communicating in some form or other. I’ve noticed I get irritable more easily and all the people I am in touch with on facebook, are having similar irritabilities.

200_s

I can bet you that it is the effects of the moon positioning!!

I first learnt of this phenomena from a dear friend who told me that in certain days of the month akin to having your period and having PMS, the moon’s positioning causes a different gravitational pull on the Earth’s forces. This is turn causes the body to go through a different than normal status because our body is made out of 70% water and the forces are pulling us down so we feel more tired and irritable. It does make sense. If you’re curious, google first moon and full moon effects on your mood and see what you find.

My thoughts in particular today are about hypocrisy. There are too many people out there that make me cringe because they say such amazing things about a person in front of some people and then stab that very same person in the back on other occasions. Or bitch about a particular person to death, and then send them a gift. Like ??????? I just don’t get it. Why do people do that? If you like someone, fair and good. If you don’t, just get them out of your life. Is it not that simple? Oh. You have mutual friends. I see. Actually, to me it is very simple. You rule your own life and decide what your terms are. If your enemy is mutual friends with someone who is your friend, just decide and get over it already. Birds of a feather flock together. Period. The bad will either influence the good to be bad, or the good will influence the bad to be good. Either way, to simplify your life, just get rid of both. Why go through the tussle of worry? Life is too short, my dears.

Everyone deserves to be happy. Some people are not quite there yet because they have so many struggles that they do not yet have the skills to manage their lives in entirety. Some people pretend that everything is OK when it really isn’t and then go drink themselves silly. Some people are real and are just getting by and coping the best they can. Some are having it real good but are too selfish to spread the love. If you are in any one of these situations, ask yourselves. What can I do to simplify my life? When you do this, most often things will start falling into place. Get rid of what you do not need.

If anyone causes you any grief, just get rid of them. Do not even think for a second that there is something to gain. The pain is not worth it. I have seen people suffer because they need to pander to a Datin’s demands because she can give them more business. Forget it!!!! Do your business with your head held high with dignity and sincerity. Screw the Datin if she has her ass in her mouth and all the millions in the world and can give you a head start in your business!!!! Money will always, always come to those who are sincere and work hard consistently, and it is these same people who will give money away more freely as greed does not play a part in their bone and the hard work tells of a persons’ core values. It is the lazy, bitchy, want short cuts kind of people who never get far in life. They are constantly on a roller coaster of ups and downs, and experience the ins and outs of depression. They do not have their lives together and their husbands and families crumble due to their unhappiness.

Yesterday I watched a video about the missing tile on the ceiling shared by a very dear friend, Sheela, my long time blog reader. We were in the car when I played the video up for all to listen. Then I asked my Hubs. What is your missing tile? He thought for a minute. And when I asked him again, he said there really is none. That made me happy and then when I myself asked myself the same question, 2 things came to mind. My Mom (because she is now missing!) and my fat content. My fat content not because I am vain, because I am not, but more so because I know that at a fat content of 50%, I am at high risk of just falling over and dying. Yet, I love food too much. OMG, how I love food!!!!!

So that is my struggle. My BFF did it last year. With single minded purpose, she ate broccoli for lunch, she woke extra early to prepare her meals, then drive the kids to school before driving to work. Oh, I forgot to mention, she did a yoga practice before all that. Now THAT is determination. She was sick of being fat. So why have I not done it? It just hasn’t clicked yet unfortunately. I know that I can do anything I set my mind to and I have proven this over and over yet, when it comes to giving up food, especially glorious food, I still struggle. But when if not now? Would I prefer to die first?

Perhaps it is fear of getting more haters. That could be a subconscious reason. I already have haters because I am vocal and don’t necessarily rub everyone the right way. I recently wrote about International Schools and Government Schools on Facebook and it worked some people up. Perhaps I wasn’t sensitive with my choice of words, but know that I am never malicious and I would never intend to intentionally hurt anyone. Sometimes I am even innocent yet get dragged down into other people’s problems. I am the cheap scapegoat because I allow it to happen. It is charity.

Imagine if I was hot and had the perfect body, had lots of money and led such a happy life? I can guarantee I would have even more haters. As it is now, I am not allowed to moan. The moment I do, I get shot down for all sorts of reasons. I am luckier than so many people and have so much more, and that makes it mean I am not allowed to moan? Apparently so to some……

All I can say is that there are all sorts of crazy diverse people in this world. We just need to respect them, accept them, and embrace them. If all that fails, find your largest carrot from the wholesale market and stick it up their arse.

June 2015 – And 6 months has passed….

HOLA!!! Can you believe it? BLINK. And 6 months has passed. Goodness gracious me.

At exactly this time last year, we had just returned home from a 5-6 week whirlwind holiday of our lives and I was plonked onto some shit. Yes, I was plonked onto a big pile of shit. Through no fault of mine at all and merely by being a mediator without taking anyone’s side, yet……women are vicious. Uhuh. Vicious. But you know what? Women are a jealous breed. Especially those who are unhappy and want a lot of attention due to childhood inadequacies or husband issues. So as always, with the big DRAMA MAMA sign on my head, I was dragged in literally to this shit. Believe me, it was stressful. I had a sick Mom, a job to get back to with about 500 emails awaiting, and I was suffering from fatigue (due to my heart problem except I didn’t know it then). Yet. Sigh. Women.

Fast forward a year later and here I am after a journey to Europe, and then to hell and back, and now towards the sky. It feels great. I am not only helping people heal and end their health suffering, I am helping women earn a regular income. It is early days yet but a few dozen women are earning between RM500-4,000 monthly from my Izumio business. And more than a dozen have qualified for the free Japan holiday coming up!!! THAT gives me real joy. When you see people dying from cancer bounce back to life, you just cannot imagine the joy that all the money in the world cannot buy. Seriously I shit you not. We have had so many cases where Doctors have said there is nothing more they can do yet our products have done SOMETHING!!!

My Mom’s passing was bittersweet. So painful that I had to let her go yet relieved that she no longer suffers the years of pain that she had been suffering just for us. Whenever I think of her, tears would rush endlessly down my face yet I am so grateful that I had all that quality time in the world with her. I am so thankful for our closeness, we were so incredibly close that I could tell her anything and she me. There was mutual respect and she admired me for so many reasons yet little did she know that I looked up to her in ways that she would never have imagined. My Mom, she taught me so much.

My heart diagnosis was scary. It sent me on a roller-coaster ride visioning death and realising new perspectives. It sent me to do research into mitral and aortal heart valve diseases. It sent me to research options of open heart surgery, where and who, how much and how long. I even joined some Facebook groups that dealt with the issue at hand knowing that one day, it would be my turn. Please Izumio, make that day never come. As with how an open heart surgery goes, the heart is stopped and you can very well die. But then again, I could die in my sleep too. That’s not going to happen though because I am positive that Izumio has helped tremendously or I would still be tired as hell just like last year.

Take for example this weekend. I had 4 deliveries to accomplish. 1 on the Saturday and 3 on the Sunday – to Bangi, Semenyih and ?? Crap. The memory fails me. It was not a chore AT ALL and in fact, we had lovely family time exploring these new locations and even looked at some new property on the way. We had nice meals and celebrated our Father’s Day DIFFERENTLY.

At the beginning of the year, the 2 girls went back to school with much happiness and we didn’t have ANY drama from T2 despite fully expecting it. I was well impressed. You go T2!!! Up to now, the girls are loving every single day of school and will wake up super early just for school. Crazy nutters.

I had a terrible experience of a slipped disc in February which almost made me miss my beloved brother’s wedding in Chiangmai but praise the Lord, Izumio took well good care of that! I swear by it. If you have a slipped disc where you cannot move your arm or your head or your leg or any freaking part of your body because it hurts so damn much that will garner you screaming in pain and dropping things because it is just so damn painful, drown yourself in Izumio and Super Lutein, and you WILL heal. Give it a week or two. If the products could eliminate my pain completely, it MUST work for you. There is absolutely no reason why it wouldn’t unless you have something much worse than a slipped disc.

My brothers wedding was a dream……and we had several holidays here and there, including my own personal travel for work (SO MUCH FUN!) and a dream holiday to The Maldives, and soon to Kuantan with the kiddies. Life is good. I cannot ask for more.

I have started exercising again thanks to some women who really love me enough to remind me to do it daily. I am eating much less sugar because Izumio has removed my sugar cravings quite phenomenally. These days, if you see me eating sugar, it is out of habit and not because my body craves it. I coloured my hair with blonde streaks because the hairdresser SAW refused to colour it blue as it was too damaging. *grunt* I have been cooking for my kids daily and playing with them on and off, having a lot of crazy fun actually, and still working damn hard in building this business because I freaking want to get there in 3 years. I know I can do it.

I am missing my God sister in Holland and am dying to go there to see her new baby. I am also missing my friends in Europe and keep wishing the Hubs would grant us another trip there real soon. I keep asking him to quit his useless job but he is resistant. He doesn’t like risks. Or maybe he just doesn’t want to be home with the kids day in day out. Haha.

So thats’ it for now, all the updates for the last 6 months, my dear friends abroad. Your turn to update me, OK?

Exam Jitters

My poor girls will be having their final exams reals soon. How time flies indeed!! They started in January 2015 and they are having their final exams in July 2015. Then a holiday for a month and straight to the new year in September 2015. Crazy right?

6marmallBeatC

T1 is doing just fine at school but T2 is struggling because of her lack of reading skills and of course, if you cannot read, how the heck are you going to answer the exam questions, right??? The teachers are concerned for her because she is far behind her peers apparently but I am still not fussed because school work aside, she seems like a pretty normal kid to me! She is funny, strong, emotional, happy, manipulative, cheeky, and everything else you would expect of a five year old. But she is not a straight A student like her sister.

We are prepared in this instance to let her repeat the year should she NOT make it to get ahead to the next year. That is hilarious because it means we have to pay her fees AGAIN to repeat the same level!!! ARGHHHHH!!!!! T2!!!!!!!! But it’s OK. Her Daddy loves her so much that he is perfectly happy to let her develop at her own pace and she will. But still!!!!!! LOL. I cannot believe one of my girls are going to repeat a year. I thought it was only for child delinquents to repeat a year. In my life, we skip years. Well, I did.

We have exactly 6 days to the start of the exam to revise the whole year’s syllabus. Huhuhu. I think I will just pass. Or should I spend every waking hour trying to get her through so that she makes it to Year 1? The price saving would be equivalent to one new Chanel Flap Bag. Darn, I cannot decide. I am so thankful that T1 is self sufficient. Imagine if I had 2 to worry about? Stress!!!

Honestly, when I was a kid, NOBODY paid any attention to my grades. I was always the top 5 in class till I reached secondary and got interested in boys which is when my grades started dropping. And still, nobody really paid any attention. But I managed to get myself a place in a top University in the best architectural school, yes? The Bartlett has been renown as the top architectural school in the UK for several consecutive years but got knocked off to 2nd place this year by Cambridge, where I was meant to do my Masters in Architecture but never went for that final interview due to boyfriend reasons. Chis. If only I had someone to kick my ass then but my parents were too preoccupied with their own lives to notice anything academic I did with my life then. So I put that offer from Cambridge into my safekeeping tin and followed my then dentist boyfriend to Leeds instead to start work with an architectural practice. You live and learn!!!

But what does that teach me? That I do not need straight A’s to get into a top University. I just needed the bare minimum to make their UCCA offer which for me was a BBC in Math, Physics and Chemistry though I did better than that. Phew. So T2 will be alright, right???

One thing I am really happy about is that the school they are in is extremely dynamic. It is rigorous and offers the children a fantastic school life that has injections of everything that is important in the optimal raising of a child. I grew up with International School kids, believe me I did. I lived next to one and I had tons of friends in another, and no, they were not the school culture I would have chosen for my kids, so till now, I am still extremely pleased with my choice of International School for my 2 girls.

But the exams still suck.

Organising her own schedule

Just look at my daughter’s desk!!! Doesn’t it make you go crazy??? Oh, gosh. I get a headache at the mere second glimpse of it. Sigh. I really need to do something about kicking her ass into gear but what example does she follow when I myself have not had time to lead by example in having a perfectly cleaned and tidy house? I can assure you though that my desk is much neater than hers. Really.

IMG_6676

 

Anyway, what I wanted to mention is that I caught the sight of this dairy on her desk the other day and decided to browse through it whilst she was at school and I must say that I am proud of her that she is keeping her life in order. I have ZERO involvement in her school life and know not what she learns or what she does or when she has what. She has to organise her own schedule all by herself and if there is anything she needs, she has to plan in advance or risk not getting it at all. She has learnt many lessons and has learnt to be responsible when it comes to follow up and getting tasks done. I am so proud of her!

IMG_6677

 

Yes, she is lazy and yes, she chooses to go deaf when I ask her to clean up certain things or maybe she’s just dreaming all the time. I don’t know. But I do think she sincerely forgets. Like if I tell her to keep her clothes, five minutes later, it is still on the couch. Then I tell her again and she says OK and then 5 minutes later again, it is still there. It drives me absolutely bananas.

Yet I am still very proud of her because she is incredibly independent and has managed to stay ahead with her school work with straight A’s short of Bahasa, which I find very commendable considering that she missed a whole year of school last year AND is the second youngest in her class competing with students 2 years her senior. Go T1!!! I do not even have to remind her to study…………what a gem she is. It is seriously one less thing for me to worry about that T1 is independent and has a good head on her shoulders. Her Nana would be so proud and I am sure she is smiling down upon her every single day.

Loving Your Job

How many of you love your job? I can instantly say without a second thought that I love mine right now. Am I busier? In terms of hours? Possibly. It depends. The hours I put in are hours that I WANT to put in. I have a CHOICE. As opposed to working for someone else, when all the millions I make for them go into the company, and I see only a small percentage in bonus payouts (even a 6 months salary is considered a small bonus payout if you compared it to the kaching that goes in), whereas in this business, I am seeing growth every single month. It is very exciting!!! Because all my hard work and sweat goes into my own bank account and I can in turn help others.

What are the factors that makes one love their job?

1. Interest / Passion

Firstly, the job you do must have your interest. For example, if you were s sewer shit cleaner, you must have a passion for poo before being able to love your job, right? Some people are creative and love doing things that squeeze their creative juices. Some are scientific and need to put logic into play with experiments. Some are mathematical and love numbers. For me, I love money. Period. And I love the fact that having money allows me to help others. From the age of 6, I was already making money and helping others. An Indian classmate with oiled curly hair called Mayamee (we used to call her Maggi Mee) needed me to complete her school homework in Standard 1 (Government School) and I charged her 50 cents. When I was 9, I started a money syndicate at school to help others make money by collecting 20 cents from all the St Mary’s School students and made a payout to them every week. I have NO IDEA where I got the idea from but I got caught out and was warned to stop. When I was 15 I think it was when I was first introduced to community service. It was then that I developed a passion for helping others who were weaker and used to help the less fortunate by spending time with them. Does your current job make you excited? Do you look forward to getting up extra early every day to go into work, or get started on your work? I am!!!

2. Renumeration

So assuming you love your job or hate your job, this would work out as a balance towards your renumeration, agree? If you love your job for whatever reason, you probably wouldn’t mind getting paid less, but if you hated your job then it would make sense to want to get paid more because it is already painful to go into work every day. Correct? I am super blessed because I get both. I not only love my job but am very well paid considering I have only started doing this business for the last 7 months and out of that worked less that 6 months. The hours I put in? It is hard to say because it is happening round the clock but it is mostly communications with people which I find easy to do so it comes naturally to me. Once a week or twice a week, I make a trip to the office and take a lovely drive to a customer’s home to deliver some products. It is very enjoyable! I also help my team members who do not have a car or cannot leave the home front to run their business for them. For those who have no experience, I give them a post schedule so they know what to post on Facebook. Every situation is possible between me and my team members. Some are full time working Moms yet doing this good work, and in turn, I just help them do whatever it is that needs doing. Some merely pass me phone numbers and get me to contact whoever it is and once I make a sale, the profit goes back to the person who gave me the number. Easy! The bigger joy though comes from seeing and hearing from all my customers as their health continues to improve and their lives get transformed. You just cannot imagine the joy. Something money cannot buy. And it is really the products at work, no glory for me at all. I merely let them know that such a thing exists. But already by that mere gesture, some of them offer gratitude in phenomenal amounts. I am blessed indeed.

3. Environment

Is this important? Absolutely. Why? Because you will be facing this day in day out and if you cannot heck it, you will start getting into a deep depression. The environment includes not only the facilities that you work in but also the people who surround you on a daily basis. The environment should have a happy and positive vibe, one that you again feel happy to step into every single day and not dread. I used to work at the Petronas Twin Towers with top of the range furniture and had a beautiful office with a swanky view to the point I used to imagine what I wouldn’t give to have sex up there on my work desk! SSsshhhhh. Never happened just for the record. CCTV cameras were everywhere. And then I also got headhunted to work in a client’s home and although it was a lovely home with a pool, I had no company and did not last very long at all. I have also been in very negative environments where back stabbers and ruthless kicks make it their livelihood to make others miserable. When faced with such a predicament, you take charge to change things and if it is not possible, then be brave enough for other alternatives. There are ALWAYS better options. You just need time to find them and in the meantime, just take the next best thing available. Always remember that when one door closes, a better one opens. That has always been the case for me anyhow but I believe that if you choose to find happiness and success, you WILL find it.

So why do I love my current job so much?

1. I work as hard or as little as I want. Everything is on MY terms.

2. The harder I work, the more income I make. I don’t have anyone to lick ass with. Period. Strangely though, I have started earning an even bigger income without working as hard now. I guess that is the beauty of this particular network marketing business.

3. I have the satisfaction of growing my team in the right direction, how fast or how slow I want.

4. I get to work from home or the office or anywhere else that I want.

5. I get to be with my kids any time that I want.

6. I have the opportunity to learn about new locations, sites, discover new restaurants, etc.

7. I have the opportunity to meet tons of amazing people. And admittedly some bad ass ones but thank God only 1 or 2.

8. I am helping SO MANY PEOPLE!!!!! Helping them heal from their suffering, helping them live happier, healthier and better.

9. I get to go on free incredible holidays!!! I don’t think I’ve ever travelled so much in a year. A fully paid fantabulous holiday to The Maldives Islands earlier this year with Club Med (trust me, the company really takes good care of you. I even flew Business Class; and Japan at the end of September and Sydney in November, Turkey and Italy next year)

10. I help women gradually increase their residual income which is so. damn. gratifying.

Is there anything I do NOT love about this job? *thinking hard*

I couldn’t think of any so I asked my husband and he laughed. Yes, there is one thing that is not ideal but it is a small enough thing to not spoil the broth if you know what I mean. It is having the misfortune of having to deal with crazy people and thankfully, not so many. Some people are indecisive, some are demanding, some are ungrateful, some are negative, some are annoying, some are untrusting, etc etc etc. But you know, these people all have a chip and should be put into the same bucket. I don’t really have time for them but I accommodate them nevertheless. I waste quite a lot of time with them actually!!! Because I’m too nice to say piss off. But it comes with the territory and I accept it. You will meet crazy people everywhere. I’m just grateful they form 1% of the general population.

Loving your job is essential to your wellbeing because otherwise you will be generating an unnecessary amount of free radicals within your body and eventually you will start having health issues. What for??? Do what you love and love what you do and soon everything will work itself out for the better. If you are really lost at work and cannot decide if you’re coming or going, email me at mama pumpkin at gmail dot come or WhatsApp me at 012-2333840 for some free advice. Seriously. Don’t be shy. I want everyone to be happy!

Hyatt Kuantan Hotel Malaysia

Has anyone been to Hyatt Kuantan Hotel in Malaysia???

We are planning to take a trip to the beach during the Raya Holidays and have decided to go to the East Coast as we have never actually been with the kids to Kuantan yet. Also, Mommy’s business is expanding to Kuantan. Heh. Insyallah.

I had to research accommodation and Club Med at that time is about RM6,000 for the 4 of us so I said forget it. I’m not spending 6k just to go to Club Med and T1 didn’t want to go either after all the stories that it was haunted. Hey, my singer Uncle and wife, lived at Club Med for awhile and my Japanese friend was a GO there for awhile too, so yes, we’ve heard LOTS of stories about Club Med Cherating. Besides, I’ve already been several times and it’s so old and dated. I really don’t think it’s worth 6k. So I continued to hunt for hotels and apparently the Hyatt Kuantan Hotel Malaysia is the best hotel in Kuantan!!!

But after reading reviews, they ain’t too good. DAMN! Furthermore, my friend who always goes to Kuantan says that it’s really not great. AIYO!!! You mean it’s not like Grand Hyatt KL??? Then why would I pay RM900+ per night for??? Someone please show me some updated photos and tell me if it is worth RM900 per night? Hyatt Kuantan Hotel Malaysia, you better be good.

All the Kuantan folk say that there is all there is in Kuantan though so we might not have much choice.

Oh, well. We shall see, won’t we once we get there. One man’s apple is another’s poison, so hopefully it is not so bad. I have enough hotel stays in my lifetime to make a good comparison just as I have had enough massages in my lifetime to know when a masseuse really knows what she is doing or not. Please pray for me that we will have a good Raya at Hyatt Kuantan Hotel Malaysia……

Happy Father’s Day!!! – Sunday 21st June 2015

Happy-Fathers-Day-Images-From-Wife13

Are you aware that Father’s Day is just around the corner in the next 2 weeks?

For a limited period only, I am having a Special Father’s Day Promotion for Super Lutein going at RM400 per bottle of 100 capsules (normal price RM435 + Delivery Charge) with FREE DELIVERY within the Klang Valley.

Grab your Super Lutein whilst stocks last for your Dad to try because it is the best thing you could ever give to your Dad, his best health.

This offer is only valid for orders made till this Saturday, 13th June 2015; and for the first 50 bottles only. Expiry of all bottles is December 2016.

GRAB YOUR CHANCE QUICK because usually I sell out within 2 days MAX!!!

Why you would want to get your Dad a bottle of Super Lutein?

Why? Because you love him and want him to live for as long as and happy as possible, yes?

What the hell IS Super Lutein?

It is a complete health supplement made from pure, natural carotenoids filtrated many times over in a sterile environment imported from the best sources of organic fruit and vegetables around the world with only the potent extract of the 6 most essential carotenoids mixed with some fish oil and wheat germ oil within a natural soft gel capsule. Compared to your usual supplements from your local pharmacist, Super Lutein does not contain any fillers, additives nor binding agents that cause eventual load and harm to your kidneys and liver. Many supplements in the market contain 80% fillers and 20% active ingredients, which is why they are in powdered form pills and cost a whole lot cheaper. GNC’s lutein supplements are only about RM100, a quarter the cost of Super Lutein, for example. Moreover, it does not necessarily contain FLORAGLO Lutein, which is the best source of Lutein in the world, clinically trialled and trusted by Doctors worldwide.

Why your Dad (or Father-in-Law) would benefit from consuming Super Lutein?

Purely and simply if he is already incredibly healthy, to prevent future chronic diseases including cancer. 3 capsules of Super Lutein contain 4 serves of fruit, 5 serves of vegetables in 6 carotenoids (pigments of plants which has the real nutrients in healing cells).

Super Lutein is great for the following health conditions:-

1. Eyes – whether it is aged macular degeneration, cataract, glaucoma or any eye disease at all.

2. Liver – Increases tolerance to alcohol, reduce tiredness, better skin, improves hepatitis (we actually have a patient of mine reverse his Hepatitis-B, no shit I kid you not), and recover from liver cancer.

3. Kidney – Improves incontinence, protein in kidneys, blood in urine, kidney stones, and the entire kidney function.

4. Blood – Normalises blood pressure, reduces blood sugar, relieves head, neck and back ache, improves GOUT, high cholesterol and arteriosclerosis (serious clogging of arteries), improvement of cerebral palsy.

5. Head – Regenerates hair growth (but you will likely lose some hair first before new baby hair grows back), some customers have experienced grey hair turning back to black (yeah, I shit you not but it’s not happened to me yet!!!), improves dementia, reduces hyperactivity in kids, and boosts intelligence due to the DHA content.

6. Skin – Eliminates acne, brighter and more supple skin (look younger for SURE!!), get smoother heels on foot, eliminates corns on foot, improves sensitive skin, cures athlete’s foot, dermatitis.

7. Intestines – no more constipation, excretes clogged stools from bowels, recovery from colon cancer, stops diarrhoea, haemorrhoids.

8. Cancer – helps cancer patients to have a much better quality of life. Has healed some cancer patients from certain cancers even without any other cancer treatment in the past, gives better strength to cancer patients. Prevents cancer. Successes have occurred with the following cancers as far as I know – Lymphoma, breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, nose cancer, ovarian cancer, and I’m sure there’s more but I cannot remember off hand right now. Best taken with Izumio if cancer patient is undergoing chemotherapy.

9. Other Miscellaneous Ailments – Giddiness, Heart Pain, Dry Skin, Asthma, Rheumatism and Joint Pains, Palpitations, Shortness of Breathe, Periodontosis, and many, many, MANY other health ailments that the body experiences and this is because SUPER LUTEIN is really SUPER. It heals the cells from within. It is not magic. It is pure nutrition. Same thing if you eat enough vegetables and fish. But you have to eat a LOT of it.

Teddy Town Kajang

Teddy Town Kajang is not as far as it sounds and is only 15 minutes away from the girls’ school in Cheras. They actually belong to the Damansara Heights branch but due to a delay in renovations, we are stuck in Cheras till only a couple more years.

T2 went to Teddy Town Kajang with her schoolmates recently and I was wondering, what the heck is that? I’d never heard of it!! Apparently it was a place where you went to make Teddy Bears! Hmmm. I was curious. Because if you are a long time blog follower, you will know that my dearest departed Mama and her few elves had hand sewn over 200 tiny teddy bears for my wedding as wedding favours, all labeled with our guests names. What a freaking awesome feat. It was THE best thing ever. Plus Mom’s sewing was ever SO PERFECT. She was such a perfectionist and if let’s say I sewed one stitch out of place, she would unpick it and resew it to make it straight again. OCD or what???

Bless you, Mom. We miss you so much but know you’re always with us in every step of the way. Thank you.

So did T2 really make a teddy bear at Teddy Town? She did!!! They used a glue gun though which I quantify as cheating. When we made our teddy bears, we hand sewed them every step of the way. It was real love and sweat. But I’ll forgive them. It was for kids. A quick solution. Just zap Teddy’s limbs with some sticky stuff and join his parts together. Never mind if he looks like a toy alien.

If you’re interested in all things Teddy Bears, you could consider a trip to Teddy Town. Google it and I’m sure you will find the address on Facebook or something. T2 said she had a good time and she bought a Minnie Mouse keychain on her trip there. We were asked to put in some money so that the kids could have fun shopping at the Teddy Town store so I expected her to buy some teddy bear something (even chocolate!) but instead, she bought Minnie Mouse??? That’s a MOUSE, not a bear??? What the hell are they selling Minnie Mouse there anyway? Are they confused?

T2 did bring home a teddy bear though. It was one which she had made with her teacher helping with the glue gun, she said. And of course, it had to wear pink. And of course, it had to be a white bear. She’s so politically correct. Not.

Review of Annie, the musical

So it wasn’t their best but it was still very good. The schools’ annual productions are always very good. Actually, I would say they are always excellent but I would only be condemned for being biased despite the fact of being the most objective person on this side of town.

Considering the kids only had 2 whole months to rehearse and even that, just after starting the new school year, they have done amazingly well. These kids are super hard working and amazingly talented. Plus they had the youngest cast ever this year. The Annual Production is usually meant for secondary kids but this year, they had a host of primary kids!!! Just imagine the number of lines and vocal training that goes into the little ones schedule!!! Poor kids, I tell you!!!

But bless them, because even with fever and exhaustion, they did it. They put on an amazing performance. Well done, children indeed. I am so, so proud of them, the students, the teachers, and the school.

So what did I think of my favourite childhood movie being enacted on a real life stage?

First and foremost, I have always had the image of Annie with that red ball of curls but suddenly at the school’s musical, Annie had long black hair instead. Okayyyyyy, maybe they wanted to Malaysianise this Annie production. Why not? I can understand if other musicals have a black haired cast such as the West Side Story or Tarzan or Beauty and The Beast and so on, but Annie????? Annie is FAMOUS for having those red, blob of curls!!! OK, OK. We have a Malaysian Annie. *shuttup already*

The next thing that disappointed me was Annie’s casting herself. Although she was THE best singer probably in all of Malaysia (yes, really very likely. That girl can drag her voice for miles and she’s only 9), I didn’t think her acting was good enough. There were other little girls as supporting roles who could have done a much better Annie but I suppose they chose this one due to her strong vocals. I felt that it was more important to have some life in the main cast than to just have a powerful voice, and for me, that was the biggest disappointment. To be fair to her though, she was ill on that very night whilst she was performing so perhaps she was not giving it her all. It makes me wonder then, what actually happens to these stage plays when the main cast falls ill? What if they are so ill that they have to go to hospital? Are there no backups? Does this mean the show will need to be cancelled?

The rest of the musical was fantastic. As always. As what I always expect from the girls’ school. From the live orchestra to the vocal choir with all their actions and expressions (such a delight!), and the entire cast and crew. Absolutely wonderful.

Gosh, it’s been a longggggg time since I’ve been on stage for a play. If I am not mistaken, I played the main Princess in Shakespeare’s A Midsumer Night’s Dream and wore a pink satin gown. I cannot even remember the name of the person I played. LOL!

Free Loaders riding on a high

Do you ever get free loaders riding on a high? I just think it is wrong. The friends who are your friends because they want freebies from you, the friends who are friends because of your social circle, the friends who are friends because they think you are rich and think that rich friends are better than poor friends, the friends who are friends because they want to ride on your network. It is so common.

My parents have paid for my holidays or clothes or anything else in the past, as gifts, because they wanted us to go on holiday with them and when we could not afford it, they would offer to pay for us because it is more important for them to have us there than not. As for clothes, my Mama was just super generous like that. She didn’t just pay for me, she paid for the whole world. Uhuh. When a waitress in the club’s mother had cancer and needed chemotherapy but couldn’t afford chemo? My Mom borrowed money from us to give it to them just so the old lady could go for chemo. When she saw a man in hospital who couldn’t afford his meds? My Mom would bring out her wallet to pay for it. When friends come over with sop stories about money woes? My Mom would readily loan them the money (and of course never see it come back!). So I can see myself very naturally following my Mom’s examples but I want it to STOP. Right now.

Believe me, it is a constant internal battle within me. Today I had a massage and it cost RM120 but I wanted to give her RM150. Why? Because it is already so freaking cheap and how much does a masseuse earn anyway? Plus when I am on holiday, I can spend a few hundred on a massage so why not her? Furthermore, she was way better than those spas on holiday! But then a little voice whispered to me, “Hey. You have to change your spending habits now. You are not working. And although you have started a new business, are still at it’s baby stages and not exactly a millionaire. You cannot afford to be so generous.”

Guess what I did? I paid her RM150.

FAIL!!!

I may have much more than many, I work damn hard for my lot, and although I am very happy to give to many people, I cannot give to all. Because there are too many!!! It’s like this. If you have RM1,000 to give to one person, fine. But if you have only RM10,000 but have to give to 100 people? It almost makes it not worth it. I would rather spread it within 10 peeps and call it a day and will just have to politely decline the rest. I am sorry. I am not a millionaire and even if I were, YOU should not have that entitlement mentality to ask me and expect me to give it to you. People think I am so rich. Little do they know I live for the moment. I do NOT have huge savings stashed away in my bank account like most people. I spend everything I make because I could die tomorrow. The Hubs hates that about me. But that is what it is.

I love those friends who only call to ask me how I am after a long silence when actually, they just need something from me. Of course, I oblige because as my own Mama taught me, why let them know that you know? Why let them know what you think? You have to be 10 steps ahead, she said. And dear friends, you have nothing to worry about because all you have to do is be yourselves. I love you most that way.

I have been experiencing free loaders riding on a high since I was a kid so no worries, my antennas are pretty sharp to realise who is sincere and who isn’t despite being warned by people that majority of folks who hang around me are just here for a reason. It isn’t true. I know the ones who are genuine, and I know the ones who aren’t. Those who aren’t do not have staying power for sure. Remember, it takes 5 years max to fake yourselves. Once that time is up and I have not relented, you will be out of my life. It is actually quite easy to see who your real friends are. Just create a crisis and you will see 99% of them fly away. It’s not like I am a millionaire and everyone wants to be my friend, no. But for whatever reason, people buzz to me like a pot of honey and then fly away when the honey runs out.

So what is a free loader? It is someone who thinks you can offer them something to gain be it material goods or cash or some benefit of sorts. The social climber is the one who will want to know you just because your Mother knows the Royal Family or your Dad is a Tan Sri. There are plenty of those too. It makes me shudder. Why in the world would ANYONE want to befriend a Tan Sri (any!) or be in touch with the Royal Family (any!). Know what I mean? We choose our friends based on their hearts not their community status, nor their wealth meter, nor their social circles. This personality trait in people makes me vomit. I’m just a simple girl trying to live a simple life but sure attract a lot of crazy people. *wails*

I am ranting because this week alone, I have had requests for several charity donations, free Izumio products, free time and free other things. Do I have a sticker on my forehead saying YOU CAN SUCK ME DRY?

No.

Please, I am not Mother Theresa. I have my own family to feed. Yes, they go to International School and yes, I have nice holidays, but that is my choice and I am entitled to my choice. I work hard for my money and so I can spend it however I choose. If you have a problem with it, go screw yourself. I do not need to justify to anyone about how much money I give away or if I give away nothing. It is my absolute prerogative and like Marina Mahathir, I do not give a toss what anyone thinks of me. As long as my conscience is clear, God is watching. Judgement Day will come and I will be judged by Him. Not by you. Sekian, terima kasih.

The Singing Mermaid by Julia Donaldson

the-singing-mermaid-framed

I have started getting back into the habit of reading to T2 again after the longest hiatus and today we read The Singing Mermaid by Julia Donaldson amongst a few other books. Bless my poor child. She has been so neglected all these years yet has turned out to be such a little trooper. I love her so much. Julia Donaldson has been one of our most favourite children’s authors of all time and it is Judy Blume and Julia Donaldson that inspire me to become a children’s author. One day, when I’m an old Granny, I will *grins*.

Firstly, it is a perfect girlie book because it is filled with sparkles and dazzling glitter!!! Every page can be touched for texture and looks pretty enough to eat. It’s such happy, rainbow filled book that comes alive even without a story. Kudos to Lydia Monks. I wonder what happened to Julia Donaldson’s old illustrator, Axel Scheffler. I remember once writing to him asking for permission to host a Gruffalo party and he kindly permitted copyright prints for the party to promote the event.

The Singing Mermaid is about duh, a singing mermaid who is blessed with such singing talent but one day is conned into the dark side by a stranger. How does she escape when she does not have legs to get her out from land back to sea?

singingmermaid-prv-1-1009054

The book teaches kids to not trust just anyone or end up in trouble just like the Singing Mermaid. It also teaches kids to treasure their good friends because it is loyal, good friends who eventually managed to save her; and new helpful friends too. Choose your friends wisely. Friends could turn out to be like the stranger too, not working towards your best interest and only want to use you. So always be careful and learn how to be sharp enough to make smart decisions when choosing who to trust.

singingmermaid-prv-3-1009072-2

T2 thoroughly enjoyed the Singing Mermaid and loves touching and feeling the book with all it’s textures and colourful, attractive illustrations. It’s not the cheapest book but well worth it I think!

Is talent inborn or bred?

Is talent inborn or bred? It is both really. My natural talent is creativity. I got it from my Mom. If you needed a hundred ideas, I could come up with them. I am just usually too damn lazy to. But if you offered me enough chocolate, I would do it. That part of my brain is just wired that way. I am not good with numbers nor am I funny, but I can design almost anything. Just not necessarily a mathematical formula or a star chart from the galaxy.

T1, she is naturally talented in talking. LOL!!! OK, she’s also a really good ideas person always ready with several solutions to any problem. She is good at drawing too and making up stories, but not so good at creative writing. She says her hand gets painful when she writes so prefers just voicing out her stories. *faint* She is really good at coming up with ideas on how to get her sister to do something that she does not want to do and that is a real talent because if all Moms could do it, parenting becomes a freaking breeze. I guess that would make T1 a really good mother because she has all the caring and nurturing qualities too. She’s such a sensitive lass, my girl. She has been getting straight A’s at school despite taking a year out last year and despite being weak at Math the previous year, has managed to stay ahead by being persistent and diligent in completing her school work. I am so very proud of her. She’s a really good girl. My best friend.

T2, on the other hand, is a feisty little chilli padi. Although she’s a very sensitive girl who gets hurt easily, she can make my blood boil so hot till I feel like throwing her out the window many a time. Still. Even at 5.5 years old. But to be fair, she is getting better. Ever since she started school, she’s had to tow the line so I think she realises that there are boundaries that even her as a princess just cannot cross. Hahaha. Kudos to Mrs Raj. T2 is a natural singer, dancer and performer. She is very good in memorising song lyrics, sings to tune and dances like a pro. She takes time to warm up to strangers but once she is all warmed up, can perform and talk like an old grandmother. She is such a spark of energy and humour and brings joy to my days every single day. But can too make me lose my patience. Her reading ability is picking up and now she can memorise 30 words of spelling and ejaan every week. Something I really celebrate because I never expected her to do it due to her slower reading development as compared to T1 who started reading at 3.

It goes to show that both girls, have their inborn talents yet if they put their minds to something, they can achieve it too. It is the same for anyone. If you decide you will do something, nothing can stop you except yourself so give yourself a chance. If you really want to do something, get out of your comfort zone and just do it!

Look at Madonna. She’s not exactly a good singer at all yet she’s managed to top the charts many a time in history. Persistence and hard work WILL get you there if you really want something.

So if your child really enjoys something but isn’t very good at it, do not give up. Encourage, celebrate, persist. And one day, watch your child soar in whatever it is that she was never very good at. It all comes from the self esteem that you build upon them. If you let them believe they can achieve anything, they can. If you believe you can achieve anything, you can too.

Annie, the musical…

maxresdefault

Annie, the musical, we will be watching this weekend! I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. Last year, I suggested to the school to do Annie for their Annual Production and this year I am getting it!!! The school performed such a magnificent perfomance last year, in fact, they have been producing excellent shows year after year, some even better than the real Broadway I kid you not. These kids are so talented and kudos to the teachers who guide them to brilliant performances. So really, I cannot wait. A few of T1’s friends are performing on stage too and some playing in the live orchestra. T1 herself could not get a spot because quite frankly, she sings off pitch and cannot dance for peanuts. T2, however, is a natural when it comes to these kind of things, so it is very clear who each of the girls have taken after.

Annie, the movie, used to be my all time favourite show as a kid. Why? Because I pretty much felt like an orphan myself and could relate. My parents were never around at home so we grew up with maids and well, how stimulating are maids? They don’t really give a shit, mine didn’t anyway. So we were lonely kids. I loved Annie and could watch it over and over again. I have memorised all the songs in Annie and even my girls know most of the songs already. It is such a fun little girl show and now whenever T2 misbehaves, I will threaten to send her to the orphanage and very quickly she will fall in line. Hahaha. She knows I love her to bits and would never, ever send her to an orphanage.

If you have never watched Annie, you must. It’s going to be a fabulous weekend with Annie and the Swiss circus!

Club Med Maldives

So I really flew to The Maldives on Business Class and had the best time ever for FIVE WHOLE DAYS!!! Not a single kid on the entire island of which the company booked the whole damn island!!!!

THANK YOU, NATURALLY PLUS!!!!

And to make things so damn cool, I have so far won 2 holiday tickets to Japan (but since we will already be going to Japan as a family later in December, I will give this holiday away to 1-2 lucky friends!! Because hmm…..I’m onto winning my 3rd Japan ticket now. Heh). I would much rather give this ticket away than exchange it for products because going on a holiday with friends is just so much more fun. I brought a friend along to the Maldives and it was just perfect.

The best news after this is that I was just told that I made the World Leadership Invitation to Sydney!!! SYDNEY!!! I have been to Perth and Melbourne but never to Sydney. Plus we will be having our annual celebrations at the Sydney Opera House itself. No other public organisation has managed to get approval to host an event there apart from Governmental organisations and the Izumio company is definitely not part of the Government, hahaha. Is that awesome or what? And people are still suggesting that Izumio is a scam? Get real.

The absolute best news of all is that my hubs will also get a free holiday to Sydney together with me. That is a big deal because this trip is one that you cannot just win. You have to be invited hence the title, World Leadership Invitation. Hee. OK back down to Earth I come. Let’s talk about The Maldives…..Paradise on Earth:

When I was first told that we were going to fly Air Lanka to the Maldives, I was like THE FUCKKKK?????? Is it SAFE???? I started asking everyone to pray for me because I am not ready to die and be part of an air crash, so pray they did. Little did I know that I would be traveling Business Class (there was no First Class) and heck, service on Air Lanka was excellent!! Dare I say it was better than flying MAS because the crew were really professional and spoke perfect English. They wore lovely peacock sarees, food was great (Curries always go well with me though I actually had a seafood platter for one of the meals, and lots of champagne *gulp*), and the chair could recline into a flat sleeping position but not only that, it had a massage function. Yeah, baby……the chair vibrated. LOL!!

11150782_10153229582062419_8802165119596661606_n

Lucky me, got to sit all alone. I could’ve played musical chairs by myself. After pretty much a 14 hour journey that involved KLIA at 6am in the morning, followed by a flight to Colombo, then transit before the next flight to Male, and then finally a speed boat to Club Med, I finally saw the Indian Ocean. I was terrified of falling into the deep blue sea but the speed boat had a window (which doesn’t help much if the boat capsizes) but at least it protected us from getting wet!

It was a fast speed boat and at a distance, I thought I saw a shark trailing us!!! Can you see? Look hard!!!

1517525_10153229583287419_2740684539009964552_n

And then finally, we were greeted with the most amazing welcome from the Club Med Team and the Naturally Plus Team, which doesn’t show in the pic below as it was colourful and noisy and super fun. I missed the picture opportunity because I was being entertained as a privileged guest!

11255217_10153229583342419_417737197000967131_n

The Maldives was just perfect. It was so beautiful that I struggle with words to describe it.

11136766_10153220414027419_343888139337241833_n

I could have sat in the tub all day with a book or even without just staring out into the sea. All day. Because so much action happened in the waters. Either you see huge turtles swimming by, or baby sharks, or colourful fishes, we even saw a big fish fighting for it’s life from an even bigger fish (teenaged shark?) and lost. RIP fishy.

10390041_10153229581432419_106331902020086223_n

The company had organised so many activities for us, and Club Med itself had so many activities lined up, we were spoilt for choice. Honestly, I could have done nothing and sat in my room all week and would have still been very happy.

11071779_10153229583627419_4237453215425656399_n

The waters were so clear!!! And if you looked beyond, it was blue, not green. Colourless beneath you, then blue, then dark blue when you get deeper. We took the opportunity to check out the spa that was offering a promo for USD59 for a 50 minute massage. Dang! We had already paid USD34 for a 50 minute massage at Colombo Airport just because we had to experience what an INDIAN massage felt like. At the airport, it was LOUSY. If you’re ever at Colombo airport, there is a massage place there beside Coffee Bean, don’t go there if you’re a massage pro like me. You will not appreciate it.

The Club Med Spa at Maldives had much better Balinese girls to offer a proper massage so we went every day. We were on holiday, what the heck.

10408832_10153229582752419_8758680879109936171_n

We had our massages in open air rooms shielded by bamboo blinds. Surprisingly, it wasn’t hot or maybe there was air-conditioning and I didn’t realise it?

11220883_10153229582952419_6613631646181472139_n

We had 5 whole days on an island all to ourselves that we could walk round and round and round the entire island and the worst thing about it? Guess!! Guess!!

11182205_10153220413917419_1472851142047850810_n

The WIFI was shaitttttssssss…….it was hilarious as we were caught once or twice daily searching for good WIFI spots (practically non existent) so much so that I have decided that my next holiday destination MUST have good WIFI. Only if I am with my entire family will I forego the WIFI. It is horrible when you cannot get in touch with your family when you are miles away on a deserted island!!! I needed to know that the Hubs remembered to pick the girls up from school daily!!!

This was one of the WIFI spots, in an air-conditioned lounge but seriously, the signals were lousy. A complete waste of time. At least I got to finish up 1.5 books whilst at The Maldives.

So since I didn’t have WIFI, I did morning YOGA by the beach……I even went to the GYM, OK????

11295804_10153229583227419_6075762266186196369_n

Had fun playing games to keep the body moving, did some snorkelling, did not participate in the TEAM TELEMATCH (hehe, we were like naughty students hiding from it)…..

11143724_10153229583132419_6746547308075208505_n

But I did overdo it on my last day there, I went out into the sea, we had to take a test before being allowed to go out into the sea. When I first heard we had to take a swimming test, I was quite shocked. What test is it? What for? We have life jackets, right? Why do we need a test? Apparently currents are so incredibly strong that even with a life jacket, you could be 200 metres away from the boat within seconds. OK, so the test involved swimming back and forth in the sea for 25 metres against the waves and following the waves and the strategy was to glide with the waves so you save up your energy for the swim back. Initially I told them, “Aiya….I was a State Swimmer in my teens, surely I can pass a swimming test!!”

Then I remembered, I was a State Swimmer almost 30 years ago. This meant stamina now….Errrr…..Hmm…Gee….. Suddenly, I wasn’t so sure if I even wanted to take the test!!! What if I didn’t make it??? Because apparently so many people couldn’t make it!!! Fuck!! Where would I hide my face???

But I psyched myself up for it and shit, it was not easy. The waves are BIG and STRONG!!! It’s like you keep swimming and swimming with all your might but you do not move!!!!! *pengsan*

Due to pride, of course I passed. I used my thunder thighs to kick with all my might and I had to because my legs were super short so I had to kick doubly triply hard. Dammit. And then when we were really out in the ocean with the life jacket, I realised that within seconds, I was almost 100 metres away from the boat. SHIT!!!! I kept swimming and swimming but I wasn’t moving!!!! Well, it was the same for everyone else so what the boat did was sail towards the people every few seconds since the people kept moving farther and farther away all the time. So damn tiring.

After that ocean experience, we settled for the swimming pool where we did Aqua Aerobics followed by team water polo followed by water dancing. I got completely sun burned and by evening, I was in coma.

Which was a real bummer because that very evening, there was a beach party and dinner outdoors at the beach!!! And all I could think of was, fuck, I need my bed. See how beautiful the setting was? Not a good shot but believe me, it was really beautiful. Very romantic and at that point, I was missing my family like crazy…….

11011203_10153229583442419_535439232206259858_n

The wind was strong that evening and I was wondering if we would be attacked by flying food, flying tables even, but thankfully they managed to keep everything under control. They were evidently very experienced in hosting beach parties. The night sky with stars was just blue with shimmers of glint. Oh. My. God. If only I had my DSLR with me then.

11265255_10153229583482419_5788244177478425159_n

The next day, there was a foam bubbles party which I refused to participate in though I kept thinking how much my kids would have loved it. LOL!! Everyone got into the bubbles pit and started splashing foam and bubbles on each other and the music was blasting.

11060901_10153229583392419_5279470285441249285_n

That night, there was a very good show by the Club Med Team. Actually, there was a show by them every single night but that night was special. We danced and parties the night away and I again had a really good workout dancing non stop.

11218782_10153220414092419_3828060698256761552_n

There was this huge tree at the centre of the resort that we passed by every day and it brought back memories of my departed best friend, Samantha. Sometimes, I feel her following me. Just like my Mom. I still find it amazing how I get a good parking spot every single time ever since she passed. Really spooky weird.

Here’s the tree by day and by night……

13496_10153220746627419_1411263974064419789_n  11139434_10153220414297419_7397981688598128135_n

On our final day at Club Med, I chilled with my big boss with our feet up. He told me about a RM40 million project he was offered by someone which he declined. He is a retired business man. Doing this project would mean taking charge of construction again and he would probably only see the full amount after 10 years. He said he was much happier doing the Izumio business. He travels the world just to meet people and save lives, or help them with their suffering. Not just health ailments and pain, but from financial sufferings too. There is a single Mom in the States who held 4 jobs squatting at her relatives home. She is half Malaysian. My big boss is working to get her out of her misery and by doing this business, she has managed to drop 2 of her jobs. She has also been promised a free holiday back to Malaysia with her daughter. Stories like that inspire me. He says, all we have to do is to keep sharing with sincerity. That is our job.

1507163_10153229583547419_4865368104025784814_n

And whilst we discussed about life, health and financial freedom (he earns RM39,000 plus a WEEK!!!), he tells me that I will get there one day too and doing such a meaningful business, is worth more than its weight in gold. With such money, he will set up a charity foundation to help the needy. With money, you can save even more lives. He is making a difference in this world and I will be his first loyal scout to assist.

He told me that when he was in the States, one of the guys offered to buy him a branded bag because he uses a Naturally Plus freebie bag but he politely declined. He says wearing an expensive bag does not mean you are rich. He likes his freebie bag thank you very much! Even if he goes around dressed like an old Ah Pek, he has enough money to buy a sports car with cash, or fly his family of 5 to Paris for a week of shopping at his whim. But he doesn’t. His aim in fact is to invest RM1 million next year back to his team members in helping them succeed. I just happen to be a lucky team member. Damn bloody lucky.

We watched the baby sharks beneath our feet as we discussed more life events and stories. So inspiring hearing all his old uncle stories. He is such a sharp man. He calculates numbers in split seconds like he’s just blinking his eyes whilst I go blank and whip out my phone calculator, and even then, can’t quite get it right. Duh.

We talk about people. We talk about family. We talk about the future. Next year, I will be going to Italy for sure. And Turkey. And who knows where else. Oh, maybe America. So much traveling, and soon the Hubs can retire from his work and the kids may have to start skiving school. If they want to follow Mommy, that is.

11256600_10153229583732419_5245682860310665221_n

Such a perfect holiday at Club med Maldives. I have better photos but they’re all stuck on my phone and I am too lazy to move them over. This should do for now. Before we left the island, we saw this yacht just before hitting the airport and it reminded me of Tok-Tok’s yachts. How I miss those sailing days with Mom. 3-4 times a year just setting sail in the hot-hot sun. What were we thinking?!?

11112503_10153229582507419_3968185986029805109_n

And after another 14 hour journey and making lots of new friends, I was greeted by this sunrise in KL.

It said Welcome Home……..

11167914_10153226249687419_2606725632068019419_n

Can you believe it? A perfect holiday all paid for by Naturally Plus. Next up, Japan. And all because I share about the fact that Izumio and Super Lutein exists in the market and is yours if you want it. Several people have told me that they have done this business and taken these products when it first came into Malaysia several years ago but they not only not work but they failed in the business. Unfortunately, the early years people who started distributing the products knew nuts. They had no clue what the products actually were and what the products could do. Such powerful products, yet they missed such a Golden Opportunity. They were not educated about it. They never bothered to research it. So they failed. How would you even begin to see a difference if you cannot even commit to the correct dosage for any one particular ailment? I am truly blessed. If you can see how powerful the products are in preventing you from further medical bills, you will realise that they are actually not so expensive. Especially not when you can refer 1 or 2 people to try them out.

Seriously, eliminate all your other vitamins and unnecessary purchases, and paying RM222 per bottle becomes very affordable. And if you want to consume it for free, you can too! Just ask me how. It is seriously such a damn good product. If you had someone critically ill, you would even pay RM3,000 per bottle if you knew it would help.

So yeah, from pushing Izumio trolleys around to help others have access to Izumio……

11203109_10153236392182419_155719104500579242_n

………….it brought me to Club Med Maldives. Not a bad deal at all. Especially considering all the bonuses I’ve been paid for it. Heh. London, Germany, Netherlands, Arizona, Australia, Myanmar…..I’ll be bringing Super Lutein to you real soon.

TGV Family Cinema – FINALLY!

5a8abd6d-a2ee-444f-9896-f86ac9122799

Last weekend, we attended TGV’s inaugural Family Cinema opening to watch The Avengers and had a fabulous time. What exactly is TGV’s Family Cinema? Finally, in Malaysia, we have a baby friendly kid friendly cinema where we can actually go watch a movie together with our little ones without worrying about them acting up or disturbing other cinema goers.

TGV’s Family Cinema allows the kids to talk and babies to cry. YES!!! They are allowed!!! And nobody will go “hush!!”

T2 was asking me questions at the cinema and for the first time ever, I did not have to tell her to “Shushhh….later.”

TGV’s Family Cinema also has the lights dimmed but not to a point where it’s pitched black and dark and scary, which scares many little ones. But here, it is only dimmed…..so much so that there were little toddlers walking up and down the stairs whilst the movie was going on. Hilarious! And oh, so cute. Children are allowed to move around in the entire cinema and scream and shout if they so wish. It is a good way for them to meet like minded friends, haha.

Another feature that the TGV’s Family Cinema has is a softer sound. You got it! Can you imagine? T2 for the longest time hated going to movies because not only was it dark and scary but the very loud surround sound freaked her out too. But thanks to TGV’s Family Cinema, we can all go as a family to watch a movie at a kid friendly showing. And do you know that they have a baby’s changing table too at the back within the cinema? I kid you not. T2 asked if we would be able to smell the baby’s poo then – LOL!! And no, we did not.

TGV’s Family Cinema offers families, especially those with little ones, an opportunity to enjoy a movie out without having to worry about babysitters and the kids too, will not have to suffer separation anxiety from being away from Mommy.

TGV’s Family Cinema will be held at 11am every weekend starting with TGV One Utama followed by the rest of their branches. Do contact TGV directly for their rollout status.

The BEST part of the TGV Family Cinema is of course, the price!!!

It will cost only RM7 PER ADULT and TOTALLY FREE OF CHARGE for ALL KIDS!!!!

Isn’t that just awesome??? I think we will watch a TGV Movie every weekend from here on!!! Thank you, TGV.

What goes up must come down…..

As the title suggests, I’m having a really blaaaaah day today. Here I am fluffing about at home when I really should be out at the Post Office to send some Izumio and Super Lutein to Europe. Why don’t I just get the Europe office to post it to the customer directly? Because the customer would like some Izumio and Izumio hasn’t arrived yet there. Naturally Plus, the company that makes Izumio and Super Lutein always starts a new market with Super Lutein first and I can understand why because after all, they grew from strength to strength on one product alone in Japan which was Super Lutein! So yeah….I’m supposed to go to the post office, tidy up the home, cook, and exercise. But right this moment, I feel like doing NONE of that.

I’m definitely PMS-ing. I wish it would just come so I can get it over and done with. And freaking come now and not when I am in the Maldives next week. Basket.

Last night, I visited my Mom’s old friend and stayed out till 1.30am and then this morning had to get up earlier than usual because T2 had a school trip to go watch the Gingerbread Man. I’d also organised to meet 2 ladies at school, one of the school Mom’s to deliver my new Young Living Essential Oils set (Yay! I’such a sucker! But they smell oh, so nice…) and another to pass her a box of Izumio. I’m now excitedly playing with my new Essential Oils set. Hahaha.

I am looking at all the unnecessary stuff we have and I just cannot be bothered to sell anything. My time is worth RM300 an hour. How much time will it take for me to sell the junk we have versus what we would actually get for it? So not worth it and the same amount of time could be spent making more income instead, or better still giving it to my beloved monyets. So yeah, I think I’m going to resolve to just pack everything away with no more hope of selling anything. Just give it all away. If the heart was so inclined, I would have gotten my act together to sell stuff by now.

It’s like making the decision to run a vegetable selling business versus running the Izumio business. One requires more physical time and one makes way more money. Which do you choose? I suppose it’s like being a teacher. Are you driven by passion or are you driven by money? In the case of my Izumio business, I’ve clearly found a win-win balance. Helping others heal and still earn an income. I’m starting to see signs of residual income pouring in which is sweet. I have worked hard after all, well, played hard too. Sometimes I’m not sure where the line is since I have so much fun doing it!

My girls are so proud of me and actually share the wonders of Izumio to their friends too! No shame! I did not tell them to but what would their friends know anyway.

Someone said something that stuck in my head yesterday and today is a day of pondering. It is about loving yourself enough to exercise. Hmmm. I am thinking very deeply about it and wondering if I could make that commitment. I certainly can’t be loving myself very much because I have not exercised since my slipped disc saga! Fail.

To infinity and beyond……….

The good news is, I am having a massage at 4pm today and I am now moving my legs on the stationary bicycle as I type. I am sure I will be feeling better later.

Strange People

3f8d7986db9fe31eb715780a328ed336

Last year, I had one of the worse experiences of my life because I had made some bad choices with people and many unfortunate series of events happened through absolutely no fault of mine. It really takes a crisis to very quickly show you who your allies are and who your enemies are. It was almost entertaining to an extent because people would come up to me to warn me about this person and that person, and everyone would be bitching about each other, and seriously, all I did was conveyed a message and BANG!!! Suddenly, the people who said those things all turned and became best of friends with these girls that they had bitched about because they were so guilty that I had let out their thoughts. I did not say it was them, but I guess they felt guilty anyway. To me, I didn’t even care. I was just fed up of the non-stop complaining of each other. Like get with the programme, women. We are here to elevate ourselves, not push each other into the ditch.

And then we have those who are too nice because they have an agenda. Oh, like I was born yesterday? When I say that it takes at least 5 years to assess a person, you are actually just touching the surface. A person can pretend to be your best friend for 5 years, and then say goodbye when the chips are no longer in your favour. Thank goodness, I am prepared for such things. Yet on the flip-side, I have met some of the loveliest, most sincere women, who really radiate love and a genuine aura; I’m not sure how but I can sense these women a mile away. They are so simple. They don’t have to buy me stuff, but they go out of their way to help me when I need help. Just simply amazing. So many of them. Thank you.

So many strange people in the world.

This morning, we had Banana Leaf rice at the new Raju’s with some new family friends and we had such a brilliant time. I thoroughly enjoyed my mutton Varuval and we laughed and laughed and laughed with this new family we’ve been destined to meet. Why? Heart patient similarities, children go to the same school, both have interests in Myanmar, both have lived in Bahrain. Like get real???? There were just too many coincidences!!! And they live 5 minutes away from us. They are Indians and we so clicked.

After that, I went about town in search for my Dutch Oven. I have been wanting to purchase a Le Creuset for some time now yet have been waiting for a good sale, or the right colour and size. Finally, friends convinced me that any old brand works just as well, so I went searching. And I could not find!!! Thus I think I’m destined to hearth my kitchen with my favourite colour of Le Creuset. Not quite sure which one that is yet. Pink? Green? Blue? Aqua? Such major life decisions. This would be perfect actually…..

Chiffon-Pink-2

I am now earning a tidy sum of money from my izumio business. Not a large sum but enough to go shopping with should I feel the urge. But honestly, I do not need anything. I was a bad girl though when I went to Singapore and ended up with a few pickups from Tory Burch. But that’s because I had freaking 5 hours at Changi!!!!! What the hell else would I have done??? I never knew Tory Burch leather shoes were so bloody comfortable too!!!! I kept telling the Hubs, at least I didn’t buy Ferragamo because I could not find them at Changi and by the time I did, it was too late. Hermes was out of my league. 1 Hermes bag is enough for half a lifetime. Dear Hubs, I hope you get it that I will be needing another in a few years time. I’m quite a simple girl, really.

Anyway, this is what I bought from Tory Burch. I couldn’t afford more. Ouch. Although the leather was so, so, soooooooo soft and I tried every pair of slipper, pumps and heels, and wanted to get the entire store; I settled for only these 2 pieces.

We received some bad news from the girls’ school that they wouldn’t be ready by this year. No real biggie since they are adjusting well at the big campus in Cheras and doing well, I just have to grit my teeth about driving to Cheras every Friday for another 6 months. Grrrr……

All my old friends and acquaintances who have been calling me up from out of the blue, have said they cannot believe how happy I sound these days. Err….I no longer have work stress, yes? Of course, I am happy!!! I am living my life with such excitement these days. Hey, I get to go for a holiday in the Maldives Islands next week. Club Med at that. Who wouldn’t be excited??? I am going with my girlfriends too. Wheeeee…….!!! Plus I have 2 Japan trips signed up. One for the Izumio and Super Lutein factory visits and another for skiing. Just why would I not be happy indeed? I have SO much to be thankful for. And I am trying to make Sydney this year as well. If not, it will definitely be Italy next year. THAT, I can guarantee. Hopefully, I can bring at least 10 girls from my team to Italy with me. Come on, girls. You can so do it!!!

So yeah, life has been good. I have been healthy without suffering any heart problems although I have joined the valve regurgitation and heart surgery support sites to prepare myself. I have been busy helping the sick and praying for them, and I have been having the craziest time with my two monkeys at home. I’m back to being a Stay-At-Home-Mom yet I am a Working Mom so to speak, so really, I’m not quite sure how one would define me, but who the fuck cares anyway.

In life, all you need to do is to do good, have a clean conscience and help as many people as you can.

PS: And I learnt all this from my legendary Mama, whose birthday is coming up and the girls have specifically asked for a Baskin Robbin ice-cream cake to celebrate Nana’s birthday. We truly miss you so much, Nana, but we know you are beside us at all times or life would not be this good. And as a friend once said, don’t believe everything you see because it may not be true. For example, I wrote recently about T1 doing a presentation and how she did not practise at all. That post made me sound like a super kiasu Mom, when in reality I could be the most laid back Mom. Another example, T1 asked me to do some homework (a song she had to assess for Geography and then ask her Mom to assess). I was so lazy that I just asked her to make up the part where her Mom was supposed to assess the song. Like, I am seriously THAT lazy……….OK, I hope her Geography teacher is not reading this now.

Long Weekend……

Everyone I know has gone to some beach or other and I am so jealous! We tried at the eleventh hour to book Club Med Cherating (DUH!!!) and it was fully booked. Too bad we didn’t think of Tanjong Jara Terengganu or we could have tried that. Too late now. We spent our long weekend in good ol’ Kuala Lumpur instead. Oh, well…..I am off to The Maldive Islands next week anyway so I shouldn’t be complaining. Heeeeee…….

It was a productive weekend nevertheless.

I finally plucked up the courage to highlight my hair. I had wanted to colour my whole head green, in lovely shades of green but the hairstylist at SAW refused. WTF!!! It’s my head, thank you very much!!! He insisted that in order to get green, I’d have to bleach my hair and that was very, very bad. But I didn’t care. I wanted green. I had seen this lovely girl at Smiggles in Singapore who looked like a fairy with her long green hair and I wanted that. But no. He refused. So I settled for streaks of blonde instead and now look like a……well, ok…….you decide. My kids say I look like a tiger.

IMG_4630

We also got to watch The Avengers, invited by TGV (bless them, they gave us 8 movie passes in total so we can go for more movies, they expire end July!) and had loads of fun as they were testing their new family cinema concept. And the next day, we watched The Fast and The Furious. Movie buffs, can you tell?

We also explored eating cheaply after spending RM370 on dinner at the Angus Steak House at Publika. But oh, my goodness!!!! It was the best meal ever!!! Their steaks are divine and much better than PRIME. If I need a good steak, I would go to Angus!!! But since then, a friend of mine has promised me that I could do my own Black Angus at home following her recipe so I am certainly going to try that out since we are such carnivores at home. Bad, bad, bad. Anyway, the Hubs freaked out at the RM370 bill and commanded us to stick to a RM30 budget per meal. LOL!!! Honestly, all we had were 2 steaks (one cheaper than the other) and a spaghetti carbonara. Uhuh. I’m not lying.

So we tried our RM30 per meal mission. Our next meal was BAKUTEH on Jalan Ipoh (YUMMMMZZZ!!!) that cost RM65. FAIL. We had 3 rice, 1 pot of BAKUTEH for 2 people, a bowl of Yow Char Kuay, a bowl of Taufu, a plate of iceberg lettuce, and 2 drinks.

The next day, we had Indian food at Anjappar in Brickfields that cost RM48. FAIL AGAIN. We ordered a fish bryiani for 2, a palak paneer, a bowl of rasam, and a pineapple juice.

Finally, we had dinner at The Lake Club and ordered 10 satay sticks, 2 seaweed popiahs, 1 chicken kebab with plain nun, 2 drinks and that cost RM40. FAIL.

But as you can see, we were improving. Practise makes perfect.

That got me thinking…..is it really POSSIBLE for a family of 4 to eat for RM30 per meal???? Our norm used to be RM100-150 and of course, sometimes we go over budget when we eat Korean or Japanese. Or RM1,000 if we ate at PRIME for New Year’s Eve, LOL. It is our absolute mission though, to keep our meals down to RM30 each. Only because I do not feel like cooking all weekend. Yet eating out is so bad for you. I shall really try to cook more during the weekends but it’s my day off. Tomorrow, we are meeting some friends for Banana Leaf. I am already QUITE sure that it isn’t going to cost under RM30. Sigh.

This only means one thing.

I have to work harder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I can because my life saving job is actually quite easy.

Girls tagging their Working Mom

On Day 4 of the girls school holiday, I could stand it no longer. I have had 3 whole days of School Holiday Activities and I needed to get back to my work. I told them that I wanted to visit the Cancer Aunty and they willingly obliged, bless those two monkeys. I’m not sure why they would valiantly protest with certain suggestions I have yet be OK with some. I wanted in fact to visit 2 Cancer Aunties just to buy them some flowers and to sit and chat with them. I know what my own Mom went through. I know how lonely a journey it can be. And so that it what I really wanted to do. Because if anything, I wanted to get to know them. Cancer links me to my Mom.

It turned out that we only had time for one Cancer Aunty and since I had an emergency delivery that very afternoon, off we set off to visit the Aunty but first, we went round and round the residential shoplots looking for some snacks. The girls were hungry and for some reason were craving “Tai Kow Meen“, and in Malay, “Apong“??? Different style from the Malay and Chinese but essentially spongy pancakes sandwiched with peanuts and sugar. The Malays add corn.

Now the strangest things happen when we are in a rush. I wanted to get there and back before peak hour traffic. I had a delivery to do, snacks to hunt for, flowers to get, and dash back before the jam. It was approaching 5pm when we got there and as soon as we found the Apong guy, I wound down my window to order 8 pieces.

EIGHT??? 

Yes, Boss! Lapan Keping!

Tak boleh makan you semua ni! Satu ni besar tahu?, he said as he held up a semi-circle Apong to show me just how large one piece was.

Oh. OK Tiga keping, Boss. 

I left him with extra change out of habit and a genuine desire, and then took the chance to ask him if he knew a florist nearby. And whaddya know, he gave me exact directions where there was a florist. After driving there, I got a parking spot right in front of the florist. Alhamdulillah! Unbuckled the girls and crossed the road to realise I only had RM35 in my wallet. Crapppppp!!!! What am I going to get for RM35!!! I quickly looked around but there was no bank teller in sight so decided to just ask the florist what I could get for RM35. What the hell.

We ended up not doing too badly perhaps because it was the end of the day and she was getting read to close shop? We got ourselves a lily with buds, some baby’s breathe, leaves, a few stalks of carnations and some daisies and chrysanthemums. And then T2 just had to ask if she could have a rose. AIYO!!!!!

Since the roses were looking very tired, I asked the Florist Aunty if T2 could have a rose. She kindly obliged but after seeing the florist wrap my flower bouquet, T2 asked again if her rose could be wrapped too!!!! OMG, this child kills me!!!

But again, the kind florist obliged ever so happily and seemingly delighted that she had managed to draw the happiest smile from T2. I noticed too that she sold Kampung Eggs and much cheaper than those I used to get from Damansara Height. I got her details and will go next Wednesday to collect my week’s supply of Kampung Eggs!!! SCORE!!!

We then set off to visit the Caner Aunty and spent 2 hours with her just chatting whilst the kids watched TV there. I gave her some healing Reiki and prayed for her. Please God, let her live for more than a year. You gave my Mom a good 14 years, I know you can do this for this Cancer Aunty too. And for the other friend of mine who is battling this Cancer Bitch too. OK?

We left before it got dark and rushed home in time for me to whip up a quick, simple dinner. It was surprisingly a really fun day and even my kids said so themselves!! We had so much fun in the car, the three of us, just chatting and laughing and learning more about each other and exchanging ideas. I love my girls. They put so much joy into my life. And thank you, Nana, for always overlooking after us. We know you do because life has just been great. Thank you. It is only with your genuine and pure love for us that this is possible. And for this, I know that it is you who is orchestrating our entire path ways to happiness. Love you so much.

Decopatching in Malaysia

Today is Day 4 of the kids school holidays. So far they have made a trip to the trampoline park, played with friends at play dates, followed me around for deliveries to see how Mommy works hard, and today, practising their creativity with Decopatch. We first learnt of Decopatch whilst we were in Paris visiting our dear friend’s home. She had the loveliest piece of furniture and when we asked where she got such an attractive, vibrant piece, she introduced us to Decopatch!

She even brought us to the mall in Paris where they sold Decopatch. EXPENSIVE!!!!! But what the heck. We were on holiday and it is beautiful after all….

One of my lovely friends, Syn Nee, gave us her old photo screen to use when I mentioned I was looking for a screen to hide the kids MESS and because it had a chip on it, we decided to revive the entire screen to a colourful burst of fun!

Decopatch is essentially lovely colourful thin decorated paper that you glue onto furniture or anything that you wish. It comes with a special glue for different surfaces and really brings stuff to live. We are a colourful, happy family so it is only apt that our stuff reflect us.

IMG_4569

They come in strips of colourful paper costing about 3 EUROS per sheet, the size if probably A3 and then you buy the special glue which is I cannot remember how much, maybe 15-20 EUROS. I remember it was quite expensive so I only bought ONE bottle as it was our first time trying it out. They wanted to buy the whole store but I said try first!!! And luckily I did, because you see, we are such a busy little family that it has taken us 10 months to finally open the damn thing up. LOL!

 

IMG_4570

We also bought some paraphernalia made out of plaster of Paris for T2 to try her hand at Decopatching.

 

IMG_4571

 

As T1 wanted to be completely in charge of the photo screen. Hahaha. Let’s see what she comes up with and what the final product turns out to be. I am really looking forward to this new piece of furniture in my living room space.

My virgin presentation

11113413_10153187496897419_6894029014482616419_n

Today, I gave my first ever presentation to an adult audience that included an ex-United Nations representative and a medical Doctor from the Ministry of Health. Thank GOD I didn’t know who they were till way after or I would have just fainted.

I am never one to go in public to speak. I just cannot do it and have always shied away from being in such a position. Despite being in a high corporate position before, can you believe it? I can do one to one or talk to 2-3 people but put me in front of a big crowd and I’d rather just resign and go home to my teddy bears. But this had to be done, so I called upon an experienced public speaker to help me with some tips and today I freaking did it!!!!!!!

Thank you so much, G, for instilling that oomph in me. I really needed it as it gave me the force to make it happen. And now I’m on fucking cloud nine!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Speaking to the trainer gave me a lot more confidence because I was not sure what to say and she gave me ideas and options which was fantastic because coming from a trained experienced speaker, I was comfortable with her advice!

Before the presentation I was hyperventilating with a booming pulse and I started gasping for air wishing the ground would just swallow me and I could avoid this yet again. But a part of me also really wanted to nip this in the bud once and for all, and I think that because this is my own business, the desire to overcome a hurdle becomes greater? In the past, I made millions for my employers. All my life. One day I woke up and decided, hey, if I can make millions for my employers, why am I not just doing it for myself? But heck, if I cannot even do public speaking then how??? MUST LEARN!!! DO OR DIE!!!

So I did. I secretly visualised that I was talking to my late mother and suddenly I was very relaxed, didn’t stutter, didn’t speed, didn’t fuck up. I nailed it. Not necessarily perfect, but yes, way above what I thought I was capable of. My criticism of myself was that I am too freaking fat. Like so fat that the stage would break kind of fat so I really, REALLY need to lose tons of weight; and the fact that my hair was so long and messy. Next presentation (Oh yea, I have my Mojo now!), I will put my hair up in a neat manner and perhaps remove my blinking glasses that I kept fiddling with as it kept dropping off my flat nose. DANG!!! Where’s your beautifully perfect nose, Ma, when I need it?

Whatever obstacle lies ahead of you in life, just do it. Thrash it and get over it. You can do it. I did.

Walk for Water by AVEDA – 2015

IMG_0831

Every year, T1’s school participates in the AVEDA Walk for Water and this year was no different. Whilst I was in Singapore for the weekend, the Hubs had to bring her at 7am to the walk venue and sort the kids out over the entire weekend. Go Hubby!!!

T1, the crazy girl, never informed us that she had to present on stage until they arrived there and the few kids were summoned on stage to present their water schpiel. Because she couldn’t remember her lines, she had to read out of a piece of paper. WTH!!! That is embarrassing in the highest order!!! Hahaha. She was only given 2 days to memorise some lines and of course, either forgot about it or couldn’t be bothered. What am I going to do with this child? I was discussing this with my SIL why T1 never told us and she said perhaps T1 knew we’d be on her case to memorise the lines and didn’t want the pressure……

But come on, you are going to be presenting to the public, surely you want to present well without reading out of a piece of paper? Only 2 kids read out of paper whilst the rest spoke without reference to anything. I will ask her later why she did what she did. Maybe she really forgot. Would you make your kid memorise the lines if she was presenting in public? It’s only a few lines and she is 10 years old. She is able to memorise Katy Perry lines so why not some lines on water conservation?

Back to the drawing board, we are all going to present and video ourselves today. Hahaha.

In Laws in Town

My schedule has been extremely busy these last few weeks that I have been skipping my daily Izumio and Super Lutein dosage because I actually forget and since every minute of my day is taken up by others, I am to say the least, stretched.

Hmmmm.

I’m quite used to being stretched but I was supposed to be slowing down.

Hmmmm.

It really takes a strong mind to pull the reins on myself to slow down as I am so driven by the passion and the cause to save lives and grow the Children of Myanmar. But still, I need to remind myself that my own health comes first. I have my own children to care for and the Hubs has been the biggest nag from his love for me. He might just want to keep me as maid to his kids, disguising it as love.

I have been running. It almost feels like a marathon and after the last Singapore weekend that turned out to be fabulous as well, and immediately after arriving from a delayed flight at midnight, thus finally getting to bed after midnight, I had to go pick up my in-laws from the airport the very next morning. And here I am now whilst the Hubs has taken them out for a super early breakfast. Talk about being the opportunist, eh? Instead of resting as instructed, I chose to escape into blog world. Heh.

So today, I feel tired. I feel like I need a massage. And suddenly I realise dang, I have not been taking my supplements regularly!!! Is it any wonder? It’s not like I’m the healthiest person on Earth plus we ate out all day yesterday due to the in-laws being in town and me not having enough time to cook. But seriously, I feel like cooking tonight. I am so sick of a whole day of out of home food.

After school yesterday, the girls roped their American based Aunt to play Piktureka with them and I partnered up with T2 whilst T1 partnered with Aunt. T2 was so competitive!!! Small chilli padi kept wanting to win and even wanted to CHEAT to win!!! Whenever there was a tie, T2 would confidently exclaim, “It was definitely Mommy first” very matter of factly when it clearly wasn’t. LOL!!! How did I give birth to a cheat?!? After a while of not winning, she started to sulk. And whilst playing, I could see her determination to win. Wow! In the end though, we lost to Team USA because we had an unfair advantage with firstly, an age difference, and secondly, T1 had memorised the Piktureka board quite well.

This morning when we woke up, T2 came to me in bed and said that today after school, let’s have a rematch. LOL!! Kiasu or what?!? She asked me to ask her Aunt if she would join us to have a rematch today and said that we were going to have a Frozen jigsaw puzzle race. Huh? Assumingly she is very confident in completing her Frozen jigsaw puzzle very quickly? I told her to ask her Aunt herself, don’t make ME the messenger. She got T1 to do it. LOL!! Adoiiiii……ever the delegator, my T2.

So yes, today. 21st April 2015, there is a very important competition going on after school at my home. Team Malaysia versus Team USA. When I told T1 that we were having the Frozen jigsaw puzzle race today, she laughed and said, “Mom, I can do 2 of those puzzles with my eyes closed whilst she finishes one.”

I told T1, let’s do it slower so she can win. Otherwise we will be having more and more competitions non-stop. LOL!!! T1 shrugged and said OK. No water off her back for her. So proud of my T1.

So what shall I do with my in-laws today?

Making Reading Fun

Making Reading Fun

As a Mom, I read tons of books to T1 since she was 6 months old. When she was a toddler at play school, she was allowed to pick and choose any book at all that piqued her interest whether or not it was her level. By the age of 3, she had started stringing words together and by 3.5 years of age, she had begun her independent reading journey. At 6, she was reading Enid Blyton and by 8, she had read the entire Harry Potter series (whether or not it was suitable). Now she reads everything and anything and loves reading…..

T2, on the other hand, I almost never read to and hence the push to start making reading fun. At 3, she had absolutely zero interest in books. At 5, she is now just starting to string letters together through a lot of encouragement. I would be lying if I didn’t feel that a piece of my heart would be crushed if T2 never adopted the love of reading but never say never. I am certain that with some fun reading exercises as below, she will get there one day. Persistence and consistency in reading without force or it ever being a chore is key. Once the child has fun doing it, they will start to love it. Every child is different and will develop their individual reading pace at separate times. Even if your child cannot read at 12 or has no interest in books by then, there is still hope yet.

Just adopt the making reading fun approach and surely they will get there.

Heard in the Car series:

As most of my interaction with my kids happen in the car (so sad, right? But what to do, the moment we get home, everyone is busy with their own responsibilities), I have started documenting the Heard in the Car series:

15/4/15
T2: Mommy, do you know before Daddy took out the YOUTUBE from my iPad, I saw the Barbie Murder Home and it has everything inside.

My head was spinning. Did she stumble across a sinister version of Barbie? Damn, thank God I got the hubs to cancel out YOUTUBE in our home.

T1: She means Barbie MOBILE home, Mom….

It’s dangerous having mispronunciations from T2. She calls her Bahasa teacher Puan Juliana….Prawn Juneya, and her Science teacher, Mrs Chandra….Mrs Sangria. T1 says Prawn Juneya’s daughters must surely be called Shrimp and Krill respectively.

In amusement of T2 calling her Science Teacher Mrs Sangria, I repeatedly asked her who her Science teacher was just to hear her pronounce it over and over again. It is hilarious but then she suddenly states, “My Best Science teacher is Mommy!”

Just for the record, I never teach her any science per se but she relates to me telling her certain stories relating back to her science class such as when I ask her during her shower how she can keep herself healthy.

T1: Who?

T2: Mommy! Mommy is my best Science Teacher.

T1: Mommy doesn’t know Science.

*Mommy starts frowning*

T2: Of course she does! She’s my best Science teacher.

*Mommy wonders if Tia is trying to bring forward the early receipt of her birthday present for August*

T1: Mommy doesn’t know Science but oh, ya….anyone can be a Science teacher at Reception level so I guess she could be your Science Teacher….

Mommy: Excuse me? You might be interested to know that I studied Science at COLLEGE level, Biology, Physics and Chemistry to be exact!!

T1: Oh, you did? You mean you know Science? I thought only Daddy knew Science.

*WTF*

And just to test me, T1 then said she was learning ‘Forces’ for Science at school and do I know it?

Mommy: Oh, so you know what F=ma is?

T1: *confused look*   Oh, noooo….we don’t do formulas for Science. We only do formulas for Math.

Mommy – 1 : T1 – 0

This is no longer a business…..

So I’ve been busy this last week leaving the house by 7.30am and arriving home after midnight 2 days in a row with a KK trip last weekend and a Singapore trip this weekend. I am bushed! If this kind of schedule happened last year, I’d be flat out in bed not moving for a few days. But here I am, still going…..

Why do I work so hard? The Hubs made me quit my job and forego my salary (no more Hermes bags!) to take care of my heart. And here I am working harder than ever. In this last few months, I am learning so much. I am seeing more people (not me going out looking for people but people coming to look for me!) and watching too many people suffer from poor health or critical health. Some of them deserve to be shot but most of them deserve to be forgiven for abusing their own bodies. Some never had a choice.

It is the most heartbreaking thing to know that you only have 6 months to live, when the Doctors tell you that the prognosis isn’t good. Or when you are so ill that the Doctors tell you that they do not know if you will come out of this alive. It could be as simple as dengue. I am praying so hard right now for a dear friend whose husband has been in ICU for the last 3 weeks due to haemorrhaging dengue. Just one bloody mosquito can put an entire family in so much grief and a wife in so much worry. There has been complications and may I plead with all of you to say a prayer for this man to pull through sooner than later. Another friend’s dad contracted leukaemia. Just like that. He was previously as fit as a fiddle. And then another lady has Stage 4 cancer. And another with Stage 3 cancer AND other health failures. My heart disease may not be as critical as I can save myself with an open heart surgery. These guys are fighting for their lives and suddenly it really matters to me that I am in touch with them, be with them and help them heal. Whether or not with Izumio and Super Lutein. It is the same with my eczema patient who is suffering so much. I need to see him healed. Nobody deserves to suffer like that. Being sick is such a lonely journey. I know, because my Mom was sick for 14 years. Although the world around you acknowledges that you are sick, nobody really feels what you go through, not until they are sick themselves. Your entire world perspective changes and suddenly so many things no longer matter because all you want is your life back.

So as of yesterday, there was a paradigm shift. Doing this Izumio and Super Lutein crusade is no longer a business to me. There is a bigger purpose to save a life and to heal the sick. I keep putting myself in my customer’s family’s shoes and imagine if it was my own family, how would I feel? Me going out of my way to be with them to help them is like that Muslim lady coming to my Mom’s hospital room to pray for her. There is no obligation and we are there to genuinely see you through. Because if any of my family were in danger, I would welcome that kind of support. Who knows if I would get it but one can only hope.

My Izumio boss told me of someone who drove all the way to Johor from KL just to pass a patient some Izumio but saved a life. For all those patients suffering from stroke or dengue, time is critical to get them the Izumio. Wait and waiver and you might have lost your patient. I saw a Doctor yesterday and she was amazed that Izumio and Super Lutein could bring a Stage 4 patient out of cancer. She said if it was Stage 1 or the early stages of any disease, it is very likely that a strong boost of antioxidants would allow the body to heal but Stage 4? Yes, Doctor. You only need to double, triple, quadruple the antioxidant dose, that’s all. Everyone has a chance to live. If only they would give themselves that chance. I have full faith in Izumio and Super Lutein for healing a life, improving a life, saving a life and bringing happiness to many lives. Do you think I’d dare publicly declare this if I didn’t have enough belief in them?

Thus if you know of anyone who would welcome some help in healing themselves or anyone else in their families, or improving their lives in any way, if anyone is critically ill and needs an option to live, or if you just want to change your life, you can contact me to enquire further at 012-2333840.

Too many coincidences…..

So firstly, I am just NOT an MLM person. I am not a product peddler and really have no interest in doing such things. Never have been. But suddenly now I am an Entrepreneur. It is different. And I am bloody proud of it!! Most people don’t get it but I do. Most people shy away from such things because they’ve either had bad experiences or they just do not see how they can gain from this life saving business.

My Mom has been helping me prosper though, I know that for a fact. There has been just too many coincidences of luck pouring in with this business and I owe it to her. From me being a hermit at home and not one to keep in touch with anyone, people from left right and long ago are all contacting me for one reason or another. Even today, an Aunty contacts me from nowhere and it turns out that she knows my Mom. Same school in Taiping. Everyone around me seems to want to try Izumio and Super Lutein. How come my luck is so good???? It’s my Mom helping me!!! For sure!!!

And the beauty of it is I just share with everyone who contacts me. I haven’t even started to contact my own friends yet. I can barely cope with the enquiries that I get. The products sell themselves. The moment people try them, they know that they work. People should really try Izumio and Super Lutein. Let’s win this war against diseases. Younger folk should start taking them now so they prevent future diseases. Not many of them are diligent with their intake so best to just take Izumio and Super Lutein. Medical bills are just too much to bare and once you’re in that cycle, heck, even if you’re rich enough to afford the medical bills (or you get it free from insurance), your quality of life suffers and just goes on a downward spiral. I am so lucky that I get to heal before I see the end of it. Will you be so lucky? Every other person is suffering from cancer these days.

Damn you, cancer. But thank you, Mom in Heaven.

My Over-Confident Daughter, T1

A few days ago, T1 excitedly came home talking about her day at school boasting that she fooled so many people on April Fool’s Day. At every corner she turned, she’d be pulling a prank on someone and she said that all the girls in her class did the same on everyone else. The boys however were too dumb to think up of pranks. Hmm. Or perhaps they were too lazy to think. Or perhaps they just couldn’t give a rat’s arse! In any case, is it something to be so proud of to fool another?

In my time, exactly when I was 10, I was at a Private School (Sri Inai) in Ulu Kelang and I remember vividly how we schemed to put a bucket of water above the classroom door attached to a string to be pulled when the teacher walked in. After ALL that planning and organising, nobody dared to pull it off! WTF!!! I was so game to do it but didn’t want to do it alone so ended up not doing it in the end. I was so eager to do it on that one particular teacher too whom I really found offensive because she happened to be the Mother of my Dad’s EX whom he dumped. She wasn’t very nice to me, of course. Chis.

T1 is also cocky when she wants to be. She will throw condescending banter at people she doesn’t like and speaks down to her sister quite often. Sometimes I think it is just her very critical nature being a Virgo but sometimes I just need to take a lot of deep breathes and pray for her to transition smoothly into her pre-pubescent years. She is so full of attitude these days, not towards me but to others who rub her the wrong way. She would never be rude to me, no way. She knows her boundaries but still. I have to remind her not to be nasty. On the flip-side, she is capable of being the kindest soul ever. Really, really, really. But only to those whom she loves and wants to be. She is very head strong but when push comes to shove, she will obey me.

For now.

What do I have in store when she becomes a teenager. Yikes!

My sweet daughter, T2

My sweet daughter, T2, presented a hand made notebook to me yesterday. After hearing the Hubs scolding me about how bad I am at managing my finances and not trusting me with managing my Izumio business (tsk-tsk, so little faith!), she took the initiative to staple some small pieces of paper together small enough to fit into my wallet like a little 555 booklet as the Hubs always, ALWAYS reminds me to do. On the front page, she wrote her name and drew a blue snowflake and at the back, she wrote T2 loves Mummy then drew a heart and a star representing T2 and Mama and at the bottom, wrote From T2.

Awwwwwwww…………

I was so touched!!!!!

Then she continued to advise me that with this little notebook, I should write down anything at all that I wanted to, such as how many Izumio boxes I delivered today, or how much money I got from that Aunty, or even what I did with her for the day and my feelings for the day. Wow!!! She understands the concept of keeping a journal!! So cute la!!!

This girl is a little charmer. Whenever she can sense that I am annoyed at something, she will quickly come up with a joke or say something funny that she knows will guarantee to get a laugh out of me. Now, is that being smart or manipulative? I am often being accused of being manipulative by my haters. Hmmm. As my BFF once told me after marrying her boyfriend’s friend, if you’re stupid enough to lose your girl then you probably don’t deserve her. What say you?

My Personal Assistant

IMG_2507

Guess who THAT is? Gee. I hope I don’t get caught for child labour but T1 is THE best PA I could ever have. She is ever obliging and if she ever gets too tired of helping her Mama, I will bribe her with some cash. This girl has had so much hands on experience in life in her 10 years that she is well equipped to go far. She can survive in this world. She can think. She can fend for herself. I feel that my first half of my job is done with her. Next will be the boys part. Damn!

When I used to be out of action due to my illness, she would cook and clean and care for her younger sister. When T2 needs help with homework, T1 handles it all. If I need anything doing, T1 is all up for the job. She is great. She comes out with good solutions too without me asking. Sometimes I will give her a task and she will suggest why I don’t do it in another way. Whenever I have a problem, she solves it. She always makes me feel that my life is so damn worth living. She is my Mother reincarnated. She has my Mother’s incredible soul. And for that, she is so, so loved.

T1 – she’s my mini adult PA. She really is!!!

The Power of BOWS – Jo’s Bowz

The Power of BOWS by Jo’s Bowz

10431480_1598965390322781_1830758418386305726_n

Do you like bows? I love bows. Ever since I was a little girl, I was a bow fan. Not just bows but ribbons too. All ribbons have pretty bows, do they not? Well, if you’re skilled at tying them then they do!

I was delighted to learn that Jo’s Bowz do CUSTOMISED bows for little girls and adults (and even for your male counterparts if you ask!). How awesome is that? All you have to do is contact Jo’s Bowz and tell her what you want exactly and she will whip out some magic. Ever since T2 accidentally dropped her pretty pink flower hairband that was presented to her by one of my close friends (it was my fault, she was sleeping and I carried her out of the car without checking her hairband so it must’ve fallen off without me noticing), she has been extremely upset. Until Jo’s Bowz made her her EXACT order of wanting a BLUE HELLO KITTY bow hairband. I was cracking my head at her request. Wasn’t Hello Kitty PINK??? As far as I know, Hello Kitty is pink. Where is one to find blue Hello Kitty?

But HECK!!! Jo’s Bowz made T2 a BLUE Hello Kitty Hairband!!!

And as the icing to the cake, her name was on the bow of the hairband!!! In large capital letters, T2’s blue Hello Kitty bow hairband actually came with her name. So damn special. She loved it and it became her regular hairband to school and all day at home. Her signature look.

And then when we visited Myanmar last year to visit our Children of Myanmar, I ordered some bows to give the children as Christmas presents and guess what? The lovely Jo of Jo’s Bows not only hand wrapped each and every individual pair of bows for the Children of Myanmar but she did not charge me for her labour. WTF. That is NOT ALLOWED. Do you have any idea how many pairs of bows I brought to Myanmar? And do you know how long it takes to make just one single bow? The girls of the Children of Myanmar LOVED their new bow clips. They wore them immediately when my girls presented it to them. So blessed to see their smiles we were. Greatest joy in the world and thank you to Jo’s Bowz for helping us make that happen.

Please hop over to Jo’s Bowz on Facebook and LIKE her page. It is the greatest joy you could give to a little girl, giving her a starter collection of pretty bows to beautify her hair. They are also much, much cheaper than commercial bows that you see at the shopping malls plus these are HAND MADE with SO MUCH LOVE.

Nothing is greater than a hand made gift made from true love and passion.

Here are some of the bows that are on offer that I like (you know, in case you would like to get ME some bows *wink*)

Just one way you can decorate your hair with a big bow.

Or bun your hair up like a chignon and still put a bow.

T2 being SHY

IMG_3151

Last week, I brought T2 for her first play date ever. Yes, I know. The poor girl is already 5 and it was the first time ever that I brought her out alone without the overbearing T1 hovering over her, to her very own play date. Needless to say, she was shy initially and took time to blend in. T2 has the strangest personality. Some people she will just click with and most she will avoid. It has always been the same since she was a baby. A very few select people even upon meeting for the first time, she would allow them to hold her hand and walk her away or let them carry her but for most people, she would cry or run away. Weird huh? I could never suss out what kind of people she liked or took to versus those that she didn’t feel so comfortable with as they were all diverse as diverse could be. I could not form a correlation.

When T1 was a toddler, I had made the unaware mistake of calling someone else’s kid shy and the mother got very upset. It was then that I learnt why. Go on then. Google why you should never call a child shy. Apparently it makes the child fixated on the label and will actually turn out to be shy even when not shy. I’m not sure how much truth there is to that but we shall see, won’t we? I have seen T2 after not going to prepatory school, still being able to play very well with her new found school friends (and fighting too, haha). I have seen her very loud and boisterous amongst the friends she is comfortable with. So when she goes all mum and is quiet, I don’t think it is so much shyness but just being cautious and deciding if these are people who are safe.

So this exact thing happened at the play date. She was quiet but eventually managed to play independently with them but at some point, she suddenly came crying to me and didn’t want to return to her friends. I thought that was odd and that something must have happened so I asked her what happened or what was said to her but she wouldn’t say. She would just keep quiet and refused to go back to her friends which annoyed me as I was having a gala time chatting to the ladies. What is wrong with my child?! Just go and play already!

Long story short, she told me that evening that the girl who had helped her put on her swimsuit had accidentally zipped her chest and so I checked her chest and indeed there was a little chaffed skin. And that is why she no longer wanted to swim nor play with her friends. Sigh. She could have told me earlier and I could have fixed everything so they could all be happy and play together again. Not sure why she wouldn’t tell me or maybe she wanted to and I was too busy to care and didn’t really listen. *guilty* I felt really bad that night and decided to make it up to her this week.

As always, I need to remind myself to s.l.o.w. d.o.w.n. because my children need me and I love them more than anything else in the world. Life just needs to be balanced. All the money in the world without health, is a no go. All the health and money in the world without happiness, is also a no go. And worse, all the money and health and happiness in the world but you raise ‘bad’ children, is absolutely a no go for me. So come on down back to Earth, me. Let’s divide the time and set fair hours so that everyone gets a piece of you equally. Poor Hubs. I think he might be at the bottom of that list.
