iPad Madness

As you already know, iPad the most talked gadget in town has finally arrived in Malaysia. Early morning I read the newspaper, people queue as early as 8am in front of the store just to get the thing. It's like when they launched the iPhone 4. Oh talking about that, my Mr. Fruitheart had his iPhone 4 a week ago.

He had his eye on the iPad now. He's a gadget freak haha.. But no honey dear, you can't have it now. Maybe Santa Claus is real he could give it to you as presents this year honey.

KUALA LUMPUR: Hundreds of buyers queued up for hours for the launch of the Apple iPad at the Mid Valley Megamall yesterday.

They arrived as early as 8am before the official launch at 10am, so as to be among the first to buy the tablet in Malaysia.

The iPad is designed to browse the web, read email, listen to music, browse photo albums, watch videos and read eBooks.

Even a broken leg person also did not stopped him to buy the iPad. This is what we called, iPad madness, iPad mania.. which ever you feel best.

KUALA LUMPUR: Despite having a broken leg, property management director Eric Wong, 52, discharged himself from hospital and made his way to the launch of Apple’s latest iPad at Mid Valley Megamall to get hold of the product.

“As soon as I read that the iPad was going to be launched for the first time in Malaysia, I could not contain my excitement. I called my wife and daughter, and asked them to pick me up. Now I can read The Star newspaper on the iPad every morning,” said Wong excitedly.

All I know Mr. Fruitheart hates to wait for long queue. But maybe because of the iPad, he is willing to do so? Hehe.. we never know.

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…
