The Never Ending Housework

Woman especially those who known as MOTHER, MAMA, MUMMY or IBU has a never ending job that is not been paid. I mean paid with money. It is called HOUSEWORK.

Dua hari minggu ini I duduk rumah melayan kerenah my small boy and mengemas bilik yang rasanya dah lebih 2 minggu terbiar berhabuk merata-rata. Dengan rambut I yang gugur bersepah atas lantai, adoi malu kalau ada orang tengok hehe.. tapi pagi tadi tak pun bangun awal, pukul 10 baru bangun. Apa punya mama lah kan. My small boy understand, his mummy tired. Awal pagi masa dia bangun siap tanya "Mama tak keje ke? Mama cuti? I cakap, ya mama cuti." Then dia terus turun breakfast dengan nenek. See how sporting and understanding he is.

Lepas bangun mandi and breakfast, vacuum bilik sambil tunggu baju dibasuh oleh washing machine.. Then pukul 12 baru I sidai. Nasib baik my mother yang masak hari ini. If not sure kelam kabut. Itu lah salah satu untungnya tinggal dengan ibu bapa. Ada certain things yang ibu bapa kita masih boleh buat. Kalau nak harap I buat everyday all the housework, memang sampai tengah malam I bekerja. Dengan bangun awal pagi, balik dah gelap. Selalu lepas sampai rumah, makan mandi terus tidur. Memang tak sempat nak tengok tv atau surfing sekejap. Cuma kadang-kadang saja if not sleepy. Paling lewat I tidur pukul 10. My small boy memang alhamdulillah 9.30 malam dia dah sendiri pergi tidur tanpa dipaksa. Bagus dia berdisiplin sendiri, tak perlu mama dia membebel. Syukur dapat anak yang macam my small boy.

Kalau dah namanya weekend - Saturday and Sunday if tak keluar ke mana-mana memang petang is my nap time. So adios! Petang nanti nak kena sambung housework, melipat kain baju dan pastinya kalau tidak rajin hari ini, hari esok lepas pukul 7 baru iron baju.

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…
