I Will Remember This

My mother had stayed in the hospital for 8 days now. She is getting better, however the doctor said they still need to monitor her blood flow. I have been told she can go home tomorrow but it depends on her blood test result. Hopefully, the test is good enough so she can go home.

I used to have this scary, sick tummy and cannot stand the medicine smell whenever I went to hospital. Surprisingly, I did not have all that now. That's amazing and good news. Maybe because I know I am strong and have to be strong for my mother. While I was there, one side I saw a mother who was taking care of her daughter. I am not sure what her sickness is. On the other side, a daughter who fell asleep while taking care of her mother who is 78 years old. All sort of sick people I can see there, with their families around. I know, no one likes to be sick. I will remember that, I can too fell sick one day.. and thinking about it.. who will take care of me? My small man? Mr. Fruitheart? Or my mother? My sister? I don't know.

'A mother can take care of her 10 children, but not all 10 of them can take care of their only mother.' Heard it many times, and yes it happens. So tomorrow morning, I am planning to cook chicken soup for my mother.

I remember reading this somewhere long time ago, 'Ingat 5 perkara sebelum 5 perkara' (remember 5 things before another 5 things).
1. Ingat sihat sebelum sakit. (healthy before you're sick)
2. Ingat muda sebelum tua. (young before you're old)
3. Ingat kaya sebelum miskin (rich before you're poor)
4. Ingat lapang sebelum sempit. (free before you don't have time left)
5. Ingat hidup sebelum mati. (life before death)

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…
