It Is Not That Easy

You love when everything is on schedule and your bed is still tidy even though you have a baby crawling on top of it. You hate it when your toddler does not listen to your call or when he does not clean up his toys back. Hate is not hate to the maximum la kan. Hate with love. Despite all those screaming, yelling, NO, YES conversation, tiredness, NO not another baby feeling, you still doing the job as a mother and wife. You still love your family with all your tiny heart.

It has never been easy in parenthood. If it's easy, I would always hear my parents said.. alah senang nak jaga Fara dulu. Baik budaknye, dengar cakap. Alahai.

Having two kids it's pretty much challenging. You have to take of yourself and your partner too. Juggling with 9-6 work, house chores and your own needs there are days you call it 'STRESS DAY-I NEED A BREAK'. Working moms and SAHM both have the same challenging work. There's no facts that saying SAHM doing much more work than working mom. Not all have maids, thank you.

I find myself becoming hard to please these days. Perfectionist freak. You know what I did? My in laws has a nanny for their daughter and there are times she helped to fold my clothes. Knowing myself very well, I would re-do it. Kedut sana sini. Of course when you fold, you tend to make a nice line and straightened kan. Nope, she didn't do it. And that tiny little things made a pain in the eye. LOL! It is very kind of her to help, I appreciate but tu lah. I tak puas hati. Mr. Fruitheart said, it's better you do it on your own then. True!

Having a every-month-tukar-perangai-baby is another thing. My baby is in the group where when babies turn to new month, she would change. During her first month, she cried a lot and hardly sleep. In addition to her bad colic. Second month, she sleeps very well and less drinking. Third month she drink a lot and less crying. And I forgot what she did last time. So last night, it has become her habit to wake up at the wee hours to play. Ugh! Just to play. The tension part, if she woke up at 3am and then decided to sleep at 5.30am. At that time lah mama have to wake up and prepare breakfast and get ready to work. So I got only 2 or 3 hours sleep every night.

Itu lah sedikit sebanyak my life ramblings during this challenging five months. It feels good to let it go here in my blog. Yes, other parents have different type of situation. Some even worse than mine.

P/S: I am very sleepy now. 2 hours off and on sleep. Pray that my body could handle it.

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…
