My First Day Back to School After 13 Years

Monday, January 3rd 2011.. Has been marked as the first day I went back to school after 13 years. Can you believe that? No?? It's true, OK. Well, it's actually my small man's first day went to school. The big boys and girls school. No more kindergarten. So it is true I also went to school to sent, picked him up and waited for him at the canteen. Difference is, I did not wear white and blue uniform.

I was nervous! And, I did cried. Shame on me. Because my small man cried too when we left him during his morning school session at SRA. I didn't expect him to cry though. But, I do understand. There were other kids who worse than my son.

First day started, he don't have the problem to get up early morning. Phew! Woke him up at 6am, but he's a bit grumpy and cranky when I talked a lot early morning, asking him to do this and that. Well, I am a woman and a mother. So I wanted it to be smooth and err.. perfect.

Morning school outfit
After breakfast, left the house at 7am. We don't want to stucked in traffic and wanted to adapt the new routine when he started schooling. We waited until 8am since we do not know which class he will be in. The teacher had called students name one by one, and until now.. I don't remember which class he's in. He cried when we left him. Aww.. poor my baby. We didn't stay until recess, and came back when the morning school ends, at 1030am.

It was his first time riding the school bus, and he was OK with it. Unlike one child who had screamed to her mother. We decided to let him stay at a transit house near the SK school. It would be easier as other kids which going to the same school will also be there. So, he would have friends.

After showing him which house he will be staying and paid the fee, we headed home. Had lunch and bath, we sent him to the afternoon school session at 1pm. So far I had not hear any complaints that he is tired.

They had assembly, and I left him for a while and sent Mr. Fruitheart to work. It has been a very busy day for both of us. I took 1 week off.. Hehe. Had to help practising my small man to familiarize with all of the new things he had to do on his own from now on.

I came back around 2.30pm. Passed the books and told my small man I will be waiting at the canteen. He had his recess at 3.10pm. I was looking for him and he was looking for me too. Haha.. Oh boy he cried when he didn't see me. Very 'manja'. Bought him chocolate doughnut and waited for him until finished. After recess, they had to queue up again to go back to their classes. I told him I will be picking him up at 6.30pm, he smiled and said OK. He even said, don't forget me mama.

And here I am, blogging about my first day back to school after 13 years. How do I feel? Exhausted! I know now I had to give more attention to my small man. He's getting bigger and the more responsible I have to give in. Going to be ready to pick him up, and later Mr. Fruitheart from work. I am the driver for this week.

He dreamed of driving this Porche

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…
