Our New Home - Renovation Part II

This is the final part of our home renovation. In sha Allah, this coming Saturday 26th Jan 2013, we will be living in our own house. I can't imagine after 3+2 of years living with my parents and then my in laws, finally.. I'm the Queen of my own house. *Gulp*.

This is how my kitchen looks like. Finally a kitchen that I can say.. MY KITCHEN.

This is our wardrobe. First picture is how the inside looks like. Second picture, they finished it with 4mm glass on just one side. So we do not need dressing table. Save space. Lucky us we did not buy a king size bed. It will be too packed. Sempit!. Almaklumlah, dah biasa bilik besar kan.

And this is kiddo's wardrobe. Those shelves are for his books. I thought there would be a door for it, but it is OK without it I guess. And it also has a 4mm glass.

Mama also wanna menyibuk posing in front of the mirror. Konon model wardrobe lah eh.

Here it is, my L-shape leather sofa from MACY. I love the smell of brand new stuff. Like x1000. There is however, a strict warning came with it. NO FOOD ALLOWED ON THE SOFA.

Both of us were not so happy about the feature wall painting the contractor did. You see, the wall itself is not smooth. The building was abandoned like more than five years, so ada lah yang tak rata, kan? But you still can paint it nicely, am I right?

Nampak bertompok. They touch up the spot, tapi warna dah jadi tak sama! Marahnya! Marahnya!

It will be there until we install the air-cond. I know it's ugly. What to do, no budget at the moment.

P/S: So frustrated with the feature wall. We were thinking about putting wallpaper to cover 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…
