Family Vacation: Langkawi Day 2

Folks, we have entered day two of Fruitheart's Family vacation. Get ready for the reading journey?

We had breakfast at 9am. Food was not OK. But we ate it anyway. Our first stop, Underwater World. As usual saw fishes, penguins, snakes and lots of other animals. We've been to Aquaria, KLCC. So it is not much of a different.

His small face!
Next stop, Oriental Village. Mr. Fruitheart planned to ride the cable car. Oh no! I am not going to ride it, no way. I'd rather stay foot where I am standing on the ground, thank you. Anyway, there a lots of people. Very crowded. Plus, it is Christmas. So we walked around it and took some pictures. There were lots of shops selling sun glasses, t-shirts, pants and souvenirs. Nothing much exciting there.

Took turn for pictures
Next we went to Seven Wells. But no we did not climb up. I am not the adventures type of person, hate those activities of jungle trekking, mountain climbing and all in the list. Hehe.. we passed by the signboard only. Stopped by Kok Beach, where we can see two three small island and few yatch. How we wish one day we could have one of those. Nice!

Later we went to Black Sand Beach. Not interesting. On the surface only the sand you can see the black sand. If you dig deep down, it's not black. There was a history for that, yeah google it.

Next stop, Hot Spring. They had some renovation and improve the facilities. From the outside we can see that they had added small building for jacuzzi. The water is warm. In the water I can see mud and algae. Not well maintained. Heard that sometime ago, people can bath there. But looking at the water, no I wouldn't let my leg in there.
Then we drove off to Kuah, as it was already past 12pm. All three of us hungry already. Before we had lunch at the nearest restaurant near Jetty Point, we bought chocolate. Spent hundreds for it. Hehe.. What to do, it's cheap and we are all chocolate lovers. I myself bought I box of Ferrero Rocher. Yummy!

After lunch, we went to Dataran Lang. It is where they put the huge eagle statue.

He's like a bird, trying to fly away
It was sure hot and sunny day. Went to Big Apple Donut and Starbucks to cool off. Then we went to the Royal Langkawi Yatch Club. More pictures!

He told us he wants a boat
Just the three of us
Beach time! My boy's favourite. Spent two hours there, and we had our first time jet ski ride. Wohoo! Awesome. But unfortunately, we had not took any pictures. My small man felt dizzy riding it, so we had to dropped him off after 15 minutes. We had fun, oh yes we did!

After beach, tanned and back to hotel for shower.. we went to 'Telaga Arabic' for some western food. food was disappointing. We both had chicken chop, and asked for BBQ sauce. Instead they gave us, don't-know-what-sauce. *sigh* Plus, expensive too and suddenly blackout!. I know, we had chose the wrong place to eat.

After dinner, we booked our island hoping trip. We thought of going snorkeling, but since my small man still had his fever and it's EXPENSIVE, RM180 per person.. forget it. Adventures begin tomorrow.

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…
