The Unexpected Family Gathering

Today, 5th Feb 2011 was the first time ever after so long my family had family gathering. I don't remember when was the last time me and my siblings spent time together for lunch and dinner at our parents house. You all know right when some of our sisters/brothers married and have a family of their own, it's not that easy to gather all at the same time. One person had to work on weekends, and one person lived so far away and one person had so many other things to do.. Yeah, you can see a lot in the TV ads. Especially during festive seasons like Hari Raya, CNY, Deepavali and Christmas.

And the most happiest people today are both my father and mother. My father had been called twice to cover one of his colleagues who couldn't make it to work. However, he said no can't do. His children, grandson and both son in law are at home, how can he go to work? And I can see my mother smile all day long even though she's unwell.

We had lunch at Penang Village, Alamanda. Some of the pictures taken..

BBQ for dinner. We were lucky because my brother in law is a Chef. He cooked Chinese dishes. And he marinated all the ingredients, taste so good!!
 Full tummy. The End.
They were fixing the new BBQ set. Took them nearly 1 hour

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…
