Family Vacation: Kuantan Night Time

Night entry..yes, day one almost over. We went to Tanjung Lumpur for dinner. It is a traditional fishing village located near the mouth of Kuantan river. it is loosely translated into English as the "Cape of Mud'. (Source from Wikipedia).

There were lots of restaurant. We chose 'Ana Ikan Bakar Petai'. It was 6.45pm and the restaurant were already full of customers.

Lucky, we got our seat. We ordered 'tomyam ayam (chicken tomyam), kailan ikan masin (kailan salted fish), sotong goreng tepung (squid battered & fried), lala masak sambal (spicy lala), ikan siakap 3 rasa (3 flavors seabass)'. We wanted to taste 'ikan pari bakar' (grilled stingray), finished already. So disappointed.

Choosing seafood

Price list
Customers can select from variety of fresh seafood-ranging from fishes, squids, prawns, crabs and lala. Once you have picked your seafood, placed it in the basket and they will cook for you. Also, you can choose what cooking method you want, from 'stim (steamed), 3 rasa (3 flabours), masam manis (sweet sour), pedas (spicy), goreng tepund (battered & fried) or bakar petai (grilled).  I have been told that it was the signature style of cooking dish here. However, since we there was no pari (stingray), we didn't try the grilled (bakar petai).

Teasing each other while waiting for food
After 20 minutes, our dinner arrived. Bon appetite!

Told you the restaurant is facing the sea, and full parking!
Enjoy the pictures. Always worth thousand words right?

Poor fish, we ate you all up

Ooh lala

He does eat a lot
Left the place at around 8.30pm. Headed back to Teluk Chempedak beach to enjoy the night view. Lots of people there still. Back to the hotel soon after that. Sleep time.

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…
