Lemongrass RM2.50

Just because I wanted to write this in English, I googled 'SERAI'. Haha.. so it is called lemongrass. I've heard of lemongrass, but did not know it is 'serai'. I'm pretty sure I am not the only pne who do not know 'serai' is called lemongrass.

Last Saturday was our groceries shopping day. It has become our routine since before married, we will buy groceries and other essential daily stuff when we got our paycheck. I think it's the usual thing everyone did. As usual, our favourite groceries place is Jaya Jusco, JJ for short.

My MIL had asked us to buy 'serai'. We went to the vegetables section. There were two section, so I had asked Mr. Fruitheart why they had two? Are there differences between this side and that side, the second row? Without me looking at the label. So he picked up the 'serai'. Each cost RM2.50. I said, that is EXPENSIVE. It had like two piece in it, wrapped with plastic. As we could not find any other (without even bother to look at the other side, clever of us haha).. we paid for it.

Serai = lemongrass
Later at home, my MIL said.. we are so rich and have lots of money bought that expensive 'serai'. *double blush*. She said, we can buy extra vegetables and it usually cost around RM0.60! She said, that must be organic lemongrass. So next time, look around first before buying. There are so many options. Lesson learned.

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…
