Why I Still Love Garfield

Garfield, the fat orange cat!

He's cute, adorable, fat, chubby, lazy and owh the list goes on. I remember when I was 13, I would want my stuff to be all 'Garfiledness'. Haha.. that's not even a word eh. I have key chain, pillow, mug and stationery's made of Garfield.

Now when I am almost thirty *shhhhhh*, my small man who is going to be seven also loves Garfield. We both enjoyed watching it. And, let me tell you something.. my in laws has a cat. Orange cat! His name is Ringgo, and no.. not exactly like Garfield, but little similar. Hehe.. Sometimes we called him Dodo and Fatty.

This picture was taken today morning before I went to work. He likes to lay there on the kitchen counter with my mother in law, while she was reading newspaper. Before I took the picture, he was laying flat. Just when I hold my phone camera in front of him, he started to pose. Clever huh?


Close up! Few times he got trapped inside a room and cannot go out. He don't even know how to 'Purrrr'.. Hmm.. correct right? Cats 'Purrr'.. There's one time he got locked up inside the closet, and everyone was searching for him for hours. Once the closet door opened, he jumped out. Poor kitty.
 I like cats, but not going to keep them as a pet. Because I don't know how to take care of them. However, I wouldn't want a cat like Garfield.. who eats a lot and lazy! But, I still love Garfield.

From wikipedia:
(Garfield is seen on a laptop, getting ready to type a note. He types in:

Dear Jon,
Life here with you has become unbearable.
I can't stand it in this house another day, so I am running away to join the
French Foreign Legion. Please don't try to find me. Just know that this is what I want, and that it's the best thing for both of us. Goodbye.

(He prints the note on a printer and carries it. Later, Jon spots the note in a fish bowl (in which the fish had already been eaten by Garfield) complete with tartar sauce and a lemon wedge by the fish bowl.)

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…
