It Is Going To School For My Small Man

The 'Back To School' season has already started on the first few weeks of school holidays. Plus, it is altogether with the Year End Sale. Shopping! Yeah!We had told our small man that he will only be getting his stuff his school stuff few weeks before school starts. He was OK with it.

12 years ago, it was my my parents who bought me my school stuff. Now it is my turn. Owh how time really flies fast. It feels like yesterday I was sitting for UPSR. Now my small man's turn to enter the big boys school. I know I will cry. Haha.. for sure! Like the first day he went to kindergarten. He even said, 'Mom go home. I will be OK.' At that time I know my baby is no longer a baby.

On Saturday we went to JJ AU to buy his school clothes. It was not so crowded. As usual, not easy to look for his trousers. We always had problems looking for the right waist size for him. He wanted a BEN 10 shoes (yeah boys, if girls they would definitely wants Barbie). No size also. All the smaller sizes were already finished few weeks earlier. We have told him, next time.. (next year of course) we will buy him the shoe he wants. But then if he still likes BEN 10.

Waiting for the sales boy to look for his size
The only thing missing is his 'baju melayu' and red 'samping'. That one too already finished and the stock will arrived next week but not confirmed. Yeah, I know we should have bought it early.

So yesterday we went to another JJ at Bukit Raja Klang and yes, found it. Phew! We spent for all the stuff, clothes, shoes, stationary around RM400. There are no cheap things now days.

All his stuff were inside the bag. He looks like Ninja Turtle!
The next thing we have to buy is his study table. Maybe after we are back from our family holiday this week then we will go search for one. A holiday before he starts school and us after our hard work.

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…
