Women and Emotions

I read an article in theStar today. Women and emotions: Transforming emotions into emotional intelligence

I must say, it came to me the right time. Once in a while, I need some motivations and time on my own. The only time I have for me is when I'm having shower. Boo hoo hoo. Sometimes, even when I'm in the shower also I think about what we should have for dinner tomorrow. Blergh.

'Relax mama. Kesian mama tak de orang tolong.' Kiddo would have said that to me if he sees me non stop doing work and talking, lebih kepada membebel lah apa lagi.

"It is undeniable that women have the tendency to be more emotional than men and it is also true that some women do end up in a sudden outpour of emotions which may be due to dissatisfaction at work, frustration with clients, envy of colleagues and other domestic issues.

Women overreact easily to issues as they take them very personally compared with men who will leave their feelings aside, especially when it comes to work.

... it does not mean that men are not emotional; they just tend to channel their emotions to anger instead of sadness.

The attributes of women being more caring and sensitive become the edge to winning people over – it’s not all about logic for women, it’s about touching people’s hearts before the minds.

... it’s important that women comprehend emotions to avoid being viewed as fluffy, irrational, illogical and unreasonable.

For example, since women tend to get personal with situations at work, a better way for them to mitigate the problem is to avoid thinking too much about the issue or dwell on their feelings.

Emotions shouldn’t be shunned but seen as an advantage. It’s all about knowing how to use them."

Above were few paragraph I took from the article.

P/S: I admit myself, I'm a fragile, sensitive and easily cry (May babies, Taurus). There are times I do not know how to stop from being too much. When I think back, I do regret some of my actions. As I get wiser (ehem not older), I hope I know how to see them as an advantage.

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…
