Male Role Model

I read an article in The Star online, Parenthots section about 'Finding a mentor to provide a male role model'.

The question in that article was "I am a single mother with a five-year-old son. How can I raise him to be a healthy man who has a good masculine image?"

From my experience, being a single mother to a son at the age of 6.. well what can I say.. difficult, challenging and exhausting! Sometimes, I don't know what he really wants when he became aggressive and annoying. Maybe at times, I am being tired and did not focus on him and he being a bit naughty to get my attention. Oh well, I am to blame.

In the article also did mentioned, if the father is not accessible to him, a substitute must be found. Yes, I have my father, and my little brother but both of them are not always around, working on shift. So, my son was left alone playing lego and watching TV. Yeah, he's the lonely child. There are times, when he speaks and act like old man (membebel), especially when I am late from work or outing. He also the type of boy who easily cry. Very sensitive, and no one can tease him.. but he can do to others. Uh ohh.. I have a feeling it will somehow be a tiny little problem in future. I did my part letting him know which are good, nice and which are bad, not to do to others. Yes, listening to his mother is somewhat he ignores sometimes. I was a kid too, hehe.. What goes around comes around huh? Karma.

And now, I am in a relationship with Mr. Fruitheart and I found out that he likes to follow his new mentor. Hehe.. Sometimes, he told me he wanted to be tall, strong like daddy. And there are times, they love to tag team and tease me!

Mr. Fruitheart was taking picture, he also acted like he was doing it too. My favourite picture of the day.

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…
