World Romantic Islands.. More Holiday

I'm in the mood of vacation. My last vacation was 24 days ago. Seems like I don't have any for long time. Just in my head huh? Hehe.. Shh.. we got a holiday voucher. Yay! Where to? It's in Peninsular Malaysia only. Just wait for the update soon. I mean really soon.

While I was searching for 'our holiday destination' on Yahoo!, there was this article 'World's Most Romantic Islands'. Ahaaaa.. very fascinating and yes it caught me. Hehe.. I love beaches and islands. What I don't like is, I am sea sick. Ughh!! But that is not going to stop me from going there. Naah ahh ahh..

Here's the top 10:

Rangali Island, The Maldives
*underwater restaurant and kicking back in the over-water spa. ~~ Aaaaahhhh..!! So nice.

Molokai, Hawaii

Capri, Italy

St. Lucia, Caribbean
*gorgeous beaches and verdant cocoa plantations. ~~ More beaches!

Bocas del Toro, Panama

*this group of islands is all about low-key relaxation with a Latin American flavor, pitch-perfect for sybarites who don’t want to pack a designer bikini. ~~ I don't care about bikini. Do you think it is this gorgeous??

Catalina Island, California
*California girls woo ohh ohh.. Katie Perry!

Santorini, Greece *striated cliffs and black-sand beaches don’t hurt

Barbuda, Caribbean
*Barbuda features just a handful of high-end hotels. ~~ So blue! I want to jump there this instance! 
Barbuda, Caribbean Claire Frank

Laucala Island, Fiji
*There are just 25 cottages on this privately owned resort, which occupies the entire island, each with a private pool, dining pavilion, and outdoor hot tub and shower. ~~ Those who wants privacy.

Pamalican Island, The Philippines

*You’ll find only one resort here -- Amanpulo. Beachcombers can navigate the entire island on foot in less than two hours, keeping their eyes out for baby sharks, kingfishers, and sea turtles, which lay their eggs here between March and October. ~~ I am animal lover haha..

This year only, I think I had and will have 4 vacation. Not long days, short days only. Maybe if we went to Paris or Gold cost we will have 2 weeks vacation. Hehe.. Murah rezeki, amin. Syukur alhamdulillah.

Plus, next year my small man will attend his year one, so we could not have frequent vacation. He needs to study more. So, it's time to pamper ourselves again. Beach here we come!

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…
