Image credit to Google

I've made a list of life lessons I have learned by the age of 29. Old?? So not old ok! I'm still young at the heart. Yeah, sayang I know you'll be reading this statement soon.

Nobody knows ourselves better than we do. Most of us needs sometime alone to 'discover ourselves'. We learned everyday throughout the life. There's not even a day we stop learning, be it good or bad experience. It taught us there are still hope and it's not the end of everything when things didn't go the way we want it to be. The happy moments, will always be kept forever.

  1. When there's no one listening, no one to depend on, no one to be there for you.. always remember GOD is always there. All you have to do is pray. GOD will always be the best option in any situation.
  2. Problems don't just disappear. Face it, deal with it. It will not go away with the blink of your eye.
  3. Be responsible. No one will ever be responsible for your actions than you. Take full responsibility even when the outcome is negative.
  4. Money could not buy happiness. But if you have money, and can buy lots of things and save for your future.. wouldn't it make you happy?
  5. Go on vacation twice a year. Free yourself from work. Hard work never killed people, but don't take the chance.
  6. Love yourself first, before you love people around you.
  7. Bad things do happen to good people. The difference is how it was handled.
  8. Just because someone doesn't show you the way you love them like you do or like you want them to, that doesn't mean they don't love you.
  9. Before you judge people without knowing them, get to know them. Then you decide. Some people might look nice but they aren't, some might look they can't be trusted, but they actually can.
  10. Love your children, they are our future. Teach them manners, good things, provide them with education. How children behave shows who their parents are.
  11. Be good to others if you want them to be good to you. Remember, what goes around comes around. What you give, either good or bad, you'll get back.
  12. Stay far away from love affair, love triangle relationship, married woman or man, or someone's lover. There's more heartbreak and pain than happiness. Promises are usually made to be broken.
  13. We always have a choice.
  14. Harbouring regrets is a tiresome way to live and a waste of our short life span. Since many of our regrets cannot be reversed, we should leave them where they belong, in the past and turn our attention to the lessons we‘ve learned and use them to make positive changes in our lives today.
  15. Stop trying to impress people by being someone you're not. In the end, you'll lose yourself.
  16. One thing for sure I learned from my child is how much PATIENCE I have.
  17. When someone says something unkind or untrue, simply consider the source and let it go.
  18. Some people are not stupid as we might think. They just don't know how  to use their skills and knowledge.
  19. Don't ever take things for granted. Especially people you care and love.
  20. People will try to control you if you let them. It's your life, you take control.
  21. The good old days will never return, no matter how hard we wish. Instead, we can recall, regain and recapture the good feelings, the simplicity and the hopefulness and make them a part of our todays.
  22. Regardless how lost and alone you feel you are not. If you are willing to cut short the pity-party, you can always find a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, a hand to hold and a heart to care.
  23. Get good enough sleep. Your health is indeed your life.
  24. The biggest mistake you can make is doing nothing because you’re too scared to make a mistake. So don’t hesitate – don’t doubt yourself. In life, it’s rarely about getting a chance; it’s about taking a chance.
  25. People especially men are not mind readers. Tell them what you're thinking and what you want.
  26. Live below your means. Live a comfortable life, not a wasteful one. Do not spend to impress others. Do not live life trying to fool yourself into thinking wealth is measured in material objects. Manage your money wisely so your money does not manage you. Always live well below your means.
  27. Educate your life until the day you die.
  28. Spend as much time as possible with the one you love. You never know when it will be the last time.
  29. Build a comfortable, loving household. Home is where the heart is. Your home should be comfortable and lined with love. It should be a place that brings the whole family together.

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…
