My Big Boy First Anniversary of Quit Smoking

Today 14th February is my big boy 1st anniversary of quit smoking. So proud of him. A big achievement, and from that day my big boy tak de hisap rokok langsung, not even a puff. Sememangnya satu kejayaan yang besar bagi my big boy sebab before this, dia memang banyak kali cuba untuk quit, tapi tak success. Godaan sangat kuat.

We were both happy with that, and of course especially my big boy. First, he is healthy. Kalau tanye every smokers, of course diorang akan cakap diorang risau dengan kesihatan diorang in future. But, what actually they do to keep healthy? Kadang-kadang, hanya tanam keazaman tidak cukup kuat untuk berhenti merokok. Memang susah nak berhenti, plus bukan boleh berhenti terus macam tu saje. Kene slowly. Kalau mengejut saje, mesti badan terkejut kan. Boleh menggigil badan. Merokok memang satu habit yang susah nak ditinggalkan!
Bila berhenti merokok ni, dah tak ada bau BUSUK! Mulut pun wangi je kan, except if makan durian lah kan.. now we talk about smoking hehe. Your mouth is sexier and smells nice. Ke situ pulak I ni. But, it's true!

Basically, as far as I know, first you got to have a SERIOUS intention and willingness to change your habit. Jangan hangat-hangat tahi ayam saje. Then, cari satu tarikh yang korang rasa amat penting untuk diingati sempena tarikh korang quit. Contoh macam birthday ke, or wedding anniversary ke, so that date korang akan ada extra important things to remember.. it would be sweet!
Other than that, we as his partner kena SUPPORT dan tolong dia quit. Bukan setakat support nasihat saje. If you can help him by controlling his spending money to buy ciggie, or you have to hold his ciggie box also that would be helpful. Belikan kan dia hacks or chewing gum untuk dia kunyah sebagai ganti rokok. Or, for a start set a limit for him to smoke like 10 stick per day. After that, boleh kurangkan to 8 or 5 per day up to you. It worked that way for my big boy.
Lastly, bila korang dah decide nak quit smoking, bermakna korang quit dan tak de nak try or start smoking back!

ASTRO: Just Because of RM10.45

On last Thursday, we had an issue with our ASTRO. We reached home and as usual, kiddo switched on the TV and click on her fave channel. However, there was a message:

We apologise for the service interruption. To resume service please SMS: Astro RCO XXXXX(Smartcard number) and send to 66688. For customers in Brunei, please call 151. (TCI)

So I sent an SMS, and got a reply:
RM0.00 You are currently not eligible for this transaction. Please make payment immediately to enjoy full ASTRO services again. Thank you.

Our ASTRO has been barred?? Mr. Fruitheart checked our history payment and confirmed we had paid. So, I had to call ASTRO. I called the toll free line and since I'm using the ASTRO IPTV, I was being transferred to another line.

I asked the customer service representative to check and she told me our ASTRO account has an outstanding payment. I was like WHAT? Outstanding payment? How much? Oh no! Did Mr. Fruitheart paid to the wrong account? Because I had 2 under my name.


Confinement Packages / Pakej Berpantang

During my last pregnancy, I hired a confinement lady (CL) from Jemari tradisional to take care of me after I delivered my baby girl. This time around I have not decided yet where I will be staying during my confinement days and not sure if I will get the same CL from JT.

So, I have started to search for confinement lady / confinement packages / post natal packages / post natal care/ penjaga pantang / pakej pantang / pakej urut bersalin on the Internet. I found few that looks OK but some of the websites were not updated. I do not know if they're still on business.

So here are the lists:

Dilemma: Taska / Nursery for The Girls

We're back to square one. Scratching our head, thinking hard and have to make an important decision. My sister can no longer take care of my girls, she has accepted a job offer in KLIA2.

Definitely not going to hire another helper. I do not want face another headache, frustration and have stranger into our house. It would also cost us thousands of Ringgit again which we don't have. Now we're considering sending the girls to a childcare centre. Choosing a childcare centre is NOT easy. Reliable and registered are normally full.

I had done my research on the Internet, browsing the JKM website looking for registered taska / nursery. I called few places and they are no longer accepting new entry.

I had called this centre named Taska Umi Setia Kasih in Danau Kota. I prefer this taska since it is close to kiddo's transit house and school. It is also close to my in law's house. And it is just opposite the police station. Aha. There is a place for Arissa, but I have to wait fo…
