Saying Sorry To Our Son

As parents, especially newbies we have never been thought about parenthood or went to class on how to be a good parents. We learned from experience, things told by our parents, practise from other parents do's and don'ts and even learn from expert's articles on the net. However, the result is either positive or negative and might or might not be suitable. Depends on the child, situation and result.

So here we are.. our experience yesterday. Kiddo's school will be organizing a one day trip. He had showed me and Mr. Fruitheart the letter and form that we need to fill in all the details. We have to pay RM55 and it is on Saturday 23rd April. The last date for the payment is on or before 4th April. So we have about five more days to do so.

So yesterday, kiddo had asked us to pay. He force us to give him the money and said if he didn't pay, he cannot go. Since we had not taken out our money and didn't go to the ATM, we decided to give it today. Which is making kiddo frustrated and cried! We have tried explaining to him that the dateline is still far away and can still pay tomorrow (31st Mac).

Mr. Fruitheart has lost his patience.

He cried all the way to school. He kept telling us to stop by the bank. We didn't listened and we did scolded him. (We regret it after we know the truth, at the end.. please read). When we reached his school, he is still crying and don't want to go into the school area. Oh boy! I talked to him and said, we will give the money tomorrow and I will let the teacher know. He hugged me and don't want to let go. He kept saying, if he didn't pay by today he can't join his friends.

Not long after that, one teacher arrived and asked what has happened. I explained and she said yes, teachers had told everyone to pay by today. Or they cannot go. Then I asked 'Oh, but why in the paper it says on or before 4th April?' The teacher said, they have to book buses and prepare the list of students faster, foods bla bla bla..
Oh you can guess how my face look like huh?

So what I did? I asked the teacher if we can pay tomorrow and she said yes. Thank God! Kiddo stopped crying and went inside with the teacher. Honestly, we felt so bad! For not trusting kiddo and not listening to him. Bad parents.

On our way home in the evening, I told Mr. Fruitheart to stop by at McD. He said, oh yes will do. We need to tell kiddo we're sorry. He was happy. McD is his fave. And, he did asked why we bought McD out of a sudden. We explained, shake hands and hugs. At the end of the day, everybody happy.

P/S: When you say sorry to your child, it shows them that apologies aren't just for kids.

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…
