He Got It From Me..Pass The Tissue Please

What is the most challenging part being a mother? For me, raising your kid to be a good useful person. Make sure he eats healthy food and on time.

OK, what do you expect from a seven year old? Listen to everything you said? Behave like an angel and never heard him say bad words, hmm.. like stupid? Or sarcasm words like what ever?

Is parenting hard? YES! No one ever told me how to raise a child. No one ever teach me how to calm down a kid when he cried non-stop or have tantrums. No one ever told me that The method of parents raised their kids now and fifteen years ago is way totally different. When my kiddo gives me his one million dollar questions, I sure scratch my head which is not itchy. Sometimes, I will say to him I will think of an answer and get back to him. Oh brother! Sound like my boss already.

During my seven years of raising him, I still don't get it if his behaviour is normal or the sign of a behavioural disorder. The most challenging part to me is to calm him down when he cried. Almost to everything.

I have to admit, during my pregnancy I always cried. And I am very sensitive. He gets it from me, don't you think? What his mother feels, he felt it also cause he is in me. It's my fault he behave like that.

P/S: My friend told me, problems are a part of everyday life. You are lucky you have a child. Cherish them, because you will lose them one day and you won't even know it!

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…
