Typical Me.. As A Mother and Wife

I know what to buy when.. Mr. Fruitheart texted me and said 'I don't know what to have for my snack time.' So I bought him chicken sausage.

I know what to say to kiddo when.. 'Mom, my throat hurts.'
I remind him not to drink iced water and eat ice cream at school.

I know what to do when.. baby girl suddenly woke up in the middle of the night.
I checked the clock to see if it's milk time, check her diapers, check if there's insects (mosquitoes or ants), or she has stomach ache.

I always checked the fridge to see if kiddo's food supplies are enough.
I always have the phone and account numbers for almost everything that is related to my family on my iPhone.

I remembered Mr. Fruitheart's and kids IC number, but I don't remember what I am supposed to do one minute after I left my room and went to the kitchen.

I said I was tired and wanted to go to bed. I went to kiddo's room, check the toilet lights if it's turn off. Checked kiddo's bag, put his tie together with his school uniform. Took his clothes that he wore that day and put it into the laundry basket. Took out the laundry basket in my room and put it outside the door so I won't forget to wash it the next morning. I pick baby girls clothes and diapers, put it in her baby bag. Get into my room and took out kiddo's allowance and put it inside his school uniform pockets. Told kiddo to go to bed, make sure he brush his teeth, drink some water before that. Checked if his air-cond was cold enough. Kissed him goodnight.

Checked out the hall and picked up the toys and Lego pieces on the floor. Rearrange the pillow on the sofa according to colours and size. Put away all the remote on the TV cabinet. Then only she lay down and checked on her phone. Opened facebook, like few pictures, statuses. Then opened Instagram and checked on twitter. Finally she tweeted, 'I'm off to bed.' Put down her phone and turn to her right where her husband and baby girl were sleeping peacefully. By that time it was only 9.00pm. Wee! And you must know I woke up at 5am every weekdays morning.

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…
