Yesterday's Wedding Update.. 24 Hour Before

OMG!OMG! Another 24 hour I'm getting married. I should blogged about it yesterday, but I am too super busy and tired.

Yes, I have been cleaning, cooking and driving here and there. Which, in our custom the bride were not allowed to do all that. Older people said it is to avoid something bad happen. But, in my case.. I have to do almost everything myself. I pray hard, nothing bad would happen. So far, alhamdulillah.

I had become a BRIDEZILLA yesterday. First, my father told me the tent will only be up Saturday morning. They thought the wedding will be on Sunday. Excuse me!! That is someone else's wedding. Plus, they said it's raining. My father said it's ok if they wanted to send on Saturday morning. I said NO! I want it by this evening!!!! My father said, what to do.. I told him he should've said, send it today no matter what.

When my father went to service my car, a lorry came with the tent. I said to myself, they must have heard me from far!!!! The power of BRIDEZILLA.. It was already cloudy and soon rain started to pour. They have to stopped for a while.

1st tent

2nd tent
Previously, I had asked my brother to drove me to Secret Recipe to pick up my cake. And right after that went to Auntie Yan's house to pick up the 'hantaran'. The 'sirih junjung' will only be ready Saturday morning. To keep it fresh.

Pheww! At night, I have packed and ironed my dress together with my small man's stuff. I also had put some henna on my fingers and toes. I wanted to do the traditional way but it did not worked. So, I have to use the modern one which is using the henna from tube, with the help of my younger sister.

Yes, I am done for 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…
