Food Review: Saba Restaurant Setiawangsa Branch

Food again peeps.

We, me and my in laws family had dinner at Saba Restaurant Setiawangsa. It was my first time there. I know they have one more outlet in Cyberjaya. Have not been there yet. Dinner was in conjunction with my brother in law's birthday, which was on 1st of July. Delayed because everyone is busy with our own agenda.

Reached there around 8PM. Lots of people. The restaurant had two floors where people can enjoy their meals. Since the first floor is occupied, we headed to the second floor. There were two tables that were reserved for big family.

We ordered first while waiting for other family members arrived. I ordered, Chicken Shish Tawouka. What no rice?? It's OK, I've had enough eating rice since morning. Trying out something light before bedtime.

Mr. Fruitheart had Beef Tika and kiddo ordered Chicken Chop with ice lemon tea.

It was a big portion and I thought kiddo wouldn't be able to finish it. Surprisingly, he did. Only left small bite for Mr. Fruitheart to finished it all up. OK here comes the negative feedback.

Since it was packed with people, the service was not as expected. There are many reviews on how good was the food, the service and place. But this time around, I have something else. It's not THAT GOOD. Both my father and sister in law's food came late. Until we had to call the waiter and asked if they had forgotten. Only after 10 minutes it arrived after most of us had done eating.

I have to admit, the food was a OK, so-so. Compared to my experience eating at Khan Baba Restaurant, which is much better. I think because it was a famous Arab Restaurant, lots of people wanted to try causing congestion and packed.. the service became slow? Hmm..

P/S: Didn't took a lot of pictures. Tired and it's past my bedtime.

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…
