Kiddo Oh Kiddo, Panic Moment

I got a call from Mr. Fruitheart at 5am Oslo time today. He wouldn't called me if it's not urgent or something that is not related to family matters. Panic attacked a bit.

As expected, he told me kiddo's teacher called him and said he missed the school bus. Oh oh! I rushed out from the office that very instance. Much worse when I reached Jln Tun Abd Razak, traffic congestion. After few hundred metres above, there was no jammed. Grrr! I told myself, please son don't cry.. mommy will be there soon.

I reached the school and there was no one there. At that time, one lady came down and asked me who am I looking for. I said, my son missed the school bus and I'm there to picked him. She said, oh ya.. the small boy. He's in the office. She said, pity him. He was standing outside the gate alone. I said thanks and went up.

I saw him sitting near the counter. Smiling! Phew! And, I was scolded by him for not attending his report card day early morning. Errr...??

The funny part? He told the lady clerk that his daddy was away, already boarded the plane when he was asked for his daddy's phone number. I know if I typed here, it didn't sound funny. But both of us know it very well how he say it.

P/S: Always put your phone number in your child bag in case of emergency.

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…
