Our New Home - Renovation Part I

I am so excited. Actually all of us, me, Mr. Fruitheart and kiddo. Finally we have our own house. The feeling of excitement, ahhh.. don't know how to describe. It's a condo which we bought in TTDI, Damansara. MAS KIARA Residences.

The first stage of course a little renovation to the new house. Painting, installing kitchen cabinet and built-in wardrobe and additional plug points. We have also asked the contractor to do the hacking for air-cond copper and wiring etc before we move in. A lot of work I would say.

They started the renovation work on Monday. And on Wednesday we stopped by after work to see what's going on.

Measuring, cutting, knocking, screwing.. This is not a well known kitchen cabinet contractor like Signature Kitchen or Kian Classic. This contractor was introduced to us by my FIL's friend. I'll share the story of how we asked for quotations maybe in my next entry.

In my opinion and suggested by Pakcik Mad Nor, we need to have the double sink and also double tap. In case Mr. Fruitheart is busy washing dishes, I can wash my hands on the other side.

We have always want to have and island in the kitchen. Since our kitchen is not big, so we asked for a bar instead. And I told Mr. Fruitheart I want a red chair. Not any other colour. Demand huh?

Both of us were so busy, and we asked the Pakcik to buy the kitchen hood and hob too. So he bought ELBA. I can't wait to cook! HAHA.

We will do a checking this weekend to see the progress. Stay tuned.

P/S: Moving in and out is tiring, I can feel the heat now.

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…
