First Day Of Eidulfitri 1431H

Syukur alhamdulillah, today is the first day of Eidulfitri which is celebrated throughout the Muslim World. Syawal, is the tenth month of the Lunar Islamic calendar. It is a month of celebration after one month of fasting during Ramadhan.

So, my update for the first day.
The night before Hari Raya, my siblings and I were busy preparing 'kuah satay' and 'sayur lodeh'. My mother already cooked 'rendang daging' and 'ketupat'. All those dishes were common and must have food on Hari Raya. Other than that are 'lontong', 'ketupat palas' (Mr Fruitheart please do take note, not 'ketupat balas'), and of course 'kuih raya'.

First time I made it by myself, yay me!
Around 10am, we headed to my auntie's house in Dengkil. However, we did not reached our destination because suddenly my mother had stomach ache. We had to cancel our raya tour, and headed to nearby clinic. She was sweating and holding her stomach. Doc said she might have got gastric and she gave her one injection to ease the pain. And oh boy she had been given 5 types of pills. After that we went straight back home.

Not long after that, my aunties, uncles and grandma from my mother's side came. Lucky we were at home at that time.

I was so hehe.. fell asleep while watching TV until 6PM. So now here I am, in front of the PC updating my blog. Normally, no one will come to visit us at night. So I can 'lepak' in front of the tv till midnight. And Mr. Fruitheart, he told me he's still at his relatives house. Fuhhh.. too much of everything he said. Give him a chance right? Hehe.. starting Monday next week, triple workout honey.

Oh ya, I did noticed this year so many people wearing purple. Talking about 'baju raya', only my son's 'baju melayu' is ready. The tailor couldn't make my parents and my siblings clothes on time. Oh well, all of us still have other 'baju raya' so we just wear it.

Raya this year is not that happening. First my second sister Diba went to her hubby's village to celebrate raya. It's their first time celebration as husband and wife. Secondly, my father worked on the night before 'raya' and only home in the afternoon. Such a workaholic. He already went to work just now, and will be back in the morning.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir dan Batin to all.

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…
