Open Letter To My Boy and Girl

Dear kids,

As you know at this point of time, mama is currently working and I'm waiting for my work to end at 4.30pm. Due to the low season (yeah, it's like the movie Open Season), less work for mama to do today. So I am taking my sweet time to update my blog and I decided to write this for both of you.

Sometime ago, I have so many free and 'curi-curi' time to update my blog. That was before I got those morning sickness, lazy mood and pregnancy brain which makes me forget things easily. Yes, baby girl.. your big brother call me 'Senior Citizen' because of my forgetfulness. Even daddy call me that too sometimes. Don't laugh!

Baby girl, last night you woke me up at 1.30am for milk. That is fine because you sleep right after 'burrpp'. And then you woke me up again at 3.30am before my alarm clock which I set to 4am for me to get up for 'sahur'. I gave you your milk and changed your diaper. You were always smiling whenever I changed your diaper or I open your clothes when it's bath time. Don't tell me you liked being naked??

And I thought that is all, but I'm wrong. You decided to have a 'chat' with me one eye opened. No, I did not leave you alone. I 'chat' with you too and I did asked you to continue your sleep back. After almost an hour you started to cry and rubbed your eyes. Meaning you want to sleep. At 4.30am, daddy took over because I had to went down and eat. See how we took turn to take care of you?

My big boy, I am sorry if I was being hard on you last night when you asked for my help with your homework. I know you didn't know how to do it. If you know, you wouldn't ask me right? I am so sorry dear. And I know, you are sleepy too. I blame myself for scolding you. I am tired and had less sleep that I easily let out my frustration on you. I know I am such a terrible mother and I shouldn't do that to either of you. I know you are a good son.

You are one kid who always listen to me, although sometimes you're not. Ahh, there are other kids who are much worse than you. I was a kid myself, so I know. You just need to read books more for your own good. I know kids your age likes to play and watch TV, but shouldn't be more than 4 or 5 hours. Yes, you did that. It makes me sad when I asked you to read and study, you do other things.

I think that is all for now kids. Mama will be going home with daddy and pick both of you soon. I always pray for the best for our family and everything will go smooth and well for all of us.

I'll write soon.


P/S: I know there are grammatical error somewhere. Oh brain not working!

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…
