My Eleven Personal Commandments

This would not be my new year resolution. Something that I set for myself, at the age of 30. Yes, I know I am getting there.

I don't remember all my 2010 resolution, only this saving hard for my wedding. Accomplished that. If I have 2011 resolution, will definitely put it here in my blog.

So here I am doing something else. I came up with this when I was reading an article in Yahoo. About new year resolution. Instead of listing your resolution which sometimes you might not follow, why not make this list?

My Eleven Personal Commandments

Be thankful
With what I have and all that I have been given. Be it something that I was not supposed to have, or I have to have it because it could be something valuable later.

Pray harder
I know at times, I did not fully follow it. Life is short, you know it.

Keep trying
I give up when I am tired of trying and think negatively like 'What's the point trying when you know how the result going to be?' The way I work it out is by doing something else. And let the thing I want to do, just lay there.

Don't sweat the small stuff
My weakness. I tend to be grumpy at times when things even the smallest one did not go my way or the way I want it. That's it, you'll see my-not-satisfied-face or my worse attitude. Silent.

Take care of your body
I know I should take care of my own body. Nobody will do it for me. Sometimes, I forced myself to the max. In every way. It has to stop. Your body needs you more.

Do what you love
I love reading. Find time to read, yeah.. 10 minutes before sleep? Can be for a start.

Listen.Laugh.Love.Let go
Listen to your heart. Laugh to keep you happy, don't stressed out yourself for something that is not worth it, like your WORK. Love yourself more. Let go if things are not meant to be, and let go of the past.

Balance in life
Do I have balance in life? I believe so. But I have to improve. Especially, my time with family.

Don't over do. Don't do more, don't do less
In everything. Especially work. My God! I am too dedicated to it sometimes.

Don't skip your meal
I always do that. Skip my meals, especially lunch. I feel sorry for my tummy. I know, some of my friends would say.. 'No wonder you're so skinny'. Hehe..

Be Fara
I am what I am. I must accept myself, strengths and weaknesses both. I must also accept everyone around me. Remember, there are no other person like you. Everyone in this world is unique. Another person might not do the work like you, might not think like you, walk like you, or like what you love, and some people might hate what you like most.. they're just they way they are.

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…
