After School Started

The long school holidays has ended. The boring kiddo is now in standard three. My boy is nine years old this year. OMG!OMG!OMG! (baca macam Lisa Surihani dalam cerita Istanbul Aku Datang).

We were so relaxed (as my friends said) in preparing kiddo's school stuff. We only bought everything on Saturday, three days before school start. As a result of that, we got a little bit frustrated when there were no size and no available stock. Uh uh. WE had the same issue last year, haih.. we never learnt.

So I had to asked my father to buy kiddo's 'baju melayu' in Banting. Lucky they still have it, but unfortunately wrong size. We had to change to the right size the next day. Now do you see the impact Fara?? I kept on telling and reminding myself to do early preparation next year. A MUST!

Everything went smooth on the first day. Since kiddo is in standard three, so his classroom is on the third floor. Thank God it's only three storey building. Penat semput mama ni anak oiii menapak sampai tingkat tiga. It's the same for his afternoon school. I couldn't imagine how he carried his heavy school bag up to third floor.

The best part, after we picked him up he told us he needs to wear the purple uniform since he is still the 'Pengawas Pusat Sumber'. Sheeshhh! We already bought the white uniform and now he had to wear the purple one. Lucky I didn't give it all away. So, pakai lah baju yang mana ada ye anakku. Dah tak muat nanti, mama beli lain.

P/S: After we move in to our new house in TTDI, I have to wake up at 5am every weekdays. Uwaaa.

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…
