Kiddo Talks: My Mother The Senior Citizen

Sometimes we, especially women feels a bit sensitive when being told we're getting old or how we're being reminded.. "Eh, you're going to be 31 this year!" Some would replied.. "Yeah, so?".. "It's just a number." And the lists goes on.
Here's my story about how I got called "SENIOR CITIZEN" by my son. He's very naughty and loves to tease his mother.
We just came back from our groceries shopping one day. Since I can't and were not allowed to carry those heavy bags.. I just walked straight to the front door holding only two small plastic bags. When I turned back, I saw kiddo came out from the car limping while carrying few small bags.

Kiddo: Aduh, beratnya. Sakit pinggang Syamie. (Sambil tangan ke belakang badan, macam orang tua berjalan).
Me: Haa.. tu perli mama la tu.
Kiddo: Mama kan senior citizen, tak larat nak bawa barang berat.
Me: Bertuah punya anak.
The other day, he teased me when I forgot things. I was preparing his school stuff early morning as usual. I had everything put into places and suddenly I noticed that he's missing another pair of his socks. I am very sure I put in on the table just few minutes ago. I got angry out of a sudden and asked kiddo to find it. Sambil tangan mencari, mulut pun sama membebel. Mr. Fruitheart came and asked what the fuss is all about. I told him and on the spot I noticed kiddo already wore 'the missing' sock!

Senior Citizens

Me: Syamie ni kan, yang dekat kaki tu apa? Bukan stokin ke?
Kiddo: Memang la mama. Syamie dah pakai dari tadi lagi.
Me: Habis tu kenapa tak cakap dah pakai?

Hubby and I looked at each other. He smiled.

Mr. Fruitheart: Tak pe sayang, kite orang faham. You forgot things.
Kiddo: Tu la, mama ni memang senior citizen. Mama lupa.

P/S: Pasrah aku dengan keadaan masa tu!

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…
