When I Was A Teenager

Teenager.. remaja, 13 to 19 years old. The best year among all, isn't it?? There's the best thing about it and there's not. Tak best mestilah sebab exam dan homework. Best bila lepak dengan kawan-kawan tak perlu fikir masalah macam orang dewasa.. terutamanya sekarang as I am nearly 3 series huk huk.. Lots of things I have to do on my own and think about.

Nak kata my teenage year best sangat.. emm.. biasa je. 13 years old, masuk sekolah agama stay hostel lagi. Sedih tau, sebab masakan my mama lagi sedap. Kena belajar basuh baju sendiri kira berdikari lah kan. Sampai form 2, tak tahan keluar asrama. Manja kan I. Form 3 pindah ke Jitra, Kedah. Masa tu Jitra bukan macam sekarang, dengar kata dah serba serbi maju. Tak banyak sawah padi. Last I jejak kaki ke Jitra, was masa I nak ambil my SPM certificate. Lama sungguh, bertahun dah. Masa umur ni juga lah, orang kata kalau tak ada cintan cintun, puppy love, cinta monyet bagai tu tak sah kan. I tak terkecuali ok! Kelakar betul bila ingat balik. Orang Kedah and Penang kata, gatai menghela.

Tapi I rasa itu lah pun sedikit sebanyak yang make my teenage year seronok. I tak rasa I ada memberontak, or perangai yang bukan-bukan. Ehh.. mestilah I bukan perasan. I baik tau! Tak caya tanya kawan I Atah, she's my best friend in Kedah, other than Yun and Nuri in Penang. Love you guys so much!

Masa teenage year juga dulu I kenal body hugging, Alien Workshop, seluar londeh yang ada gambar Alien tu. Apa lagi eh, oh yea masa ni I buta internet lagi. So, I don't really know much about it. Nasib baik at this time, Jitra don't have shopping complex like KLCC or Midvalley. If not, my dad would be broke. Seriously, girls at the age of 16 and 17 you know what I mean.

Then after my SPM when I was 18, I went back to Selangor. And that was when I learned to drive, internet, MIRC chatting, KLCC, OU and all. I started my first job and seronok bila dapat my first salary. When I owned my car, lagi besar langkah I. Kancil saja, cukup lah as I am not that tall to drive a sport car or big car. Kalau tidak, I dah beli Satria GTI.. hik hik.. My dad cakap, later all the boys will be chasing me. Oh really?? Nahhh.. I don't think so dad. I think my most memorable and bestest teenage year was when I'm 18-19. Between being an adult and ending my teenage year. Oh well, sweet memories remain.

And, don't want to touch all the bad memories. Let it be there.

Talking about teenagers TODAY, all I can say OH MY GOD! Totally different, more extreme in every single way. Susah nak jumpa teenager yang how should I put it in a understandable word. Hmm.. don't have one. They think that parents don't understand them, but actually they do. Our parents also once a teenager and know exactly what they had gone through. Believe me, I know.

Semua orang tak sama, but in the end parents do know. Like my parents used to say.. just wait until you become a parent, you'll know how hard it is. Oh yes, mom and dad.. you're correct. Kadang-kadang, I wish I can be kids and teenagers again. Nothing to worry about kan, only study, get good grades and exam, lepak with friends. Well, life was never been easy if you make it hard.. hehe

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…
