Keep In Touch in Facebook

Facebook. Direct translation to Malay - Mukabuku. There's a song about it, Cinta Mukabuku sing by a 16 year old girl, Najwa Latif. Catchy song, and nice lyrics too. About teenagers love. That is what happened when you listened to Hotfm radio station instead of, and those songs like Aisheteru, Percaya Padaku, Beribu Sesalan, Ku menunggu stucked in your head. OK, I am out of the topic now.

One of my office colleague resigned today. He got a better job opportunity outside. Good for him. And traditionally, whenever someone leaves the company they would send email. He did the same.

Back then people would just include their phone number and email address. Nowadays, they include their facebook name and twitter as well. It's not a surprise at all. It's just that I think we're so into social networking these days. What happened to the hangout in old fashion way? Meet up at coffee shop, catch up movies with friends, or even play squash on weekend? Some still doing it, no doubt about it.

I feel like I'm losing lots of my friends lately. I know everyone have their own agenda, plans with families and kids. Especially those newly weds and those who had new babies. Sometimes I need to talk to a friend, when I called they didn't pick up. Kind of make me sad and unwanted. Although my heart says, it's OK they're busy, they might turn my call later.. but hmmm..

I missed my time when I'm having my chit chat with my girlfriends. Once in while we do need to mix around don't we? My mind says, I could always make new friends. Yeah, I have lots of online, unseen friends via social network. Hundreds of them. It's just not the same.. you know what I mean.

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…
