Kiddo, Pink and I'm Not A Baby

Kiddo is nine years old this year. There are times I couldn't believe it myself that I have a son who's gonna be a teenager in 3-4 years time.

We were waiting in the post office for our turn to renew Alza's road tax. Dua kali datang OK! I forgot the geran kereta. No I didn't remember to bring it, Mr. Fruitheart didn't tell me. Yes, I know how to drive the car and use it. Not to maintain it. I bawa insurans nya saja. *facepalm*

OK, ok.. back to the story. I asked kiddo, 'Do you want the cartoon bedsheet? They have transformers, Ben 10 and Angry Birds. And some other.'

I expected he would say he wants Transformer, but..

"No I don't want. Syahmie dah besar. Don't want cartoon bed sheet. I want white colour.'

Say what?! I rasa nak pitam sekejap. Over tau mama.

"Ok. But don't la choose white. Later darah nyamuk and air liur basi bertompok. I buy blue one ok?"

"Ala, kaler biru pun air liur Syahmie melekat juga la mama."

"Haa.. then I buy pink lah."

"Pink kan untuk girl. Mama ni sama je perangai macam daddy. Suka menyakat anak. Mama tak sayang Syahmie ke?"

Amboi! Ayat dia, tengok. Bukan main lagi, tak sayang katenye. I wanted to make him feel happy moving to the new house, having his own room and his new bed. I guess he already set in mind, I AM A BIG BOY NOW. Cartoon is for babies. Who knows.

P/S: We always told him, 'Syahmie dah 9 tahun dah besar dah.' That's why. 40x cakap, memang macam tu lah jawapan balas.

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…
