Happy 9th Month Old Girl

The long entry just for you Arissa..

Today you turned 9 month old. I carried you in my tummy for 9 month too. Everyone said mama's tummy was huge that time. I looked like a mama bear that walks like a penguin. And you know what? Every night daddy would massage mama's tummy to make the stretch marks go away. Sadly, it's still there. I still have the marks during your big brother's time. Yeah, will stay there for the rest of my life.

At this age baby, you can crawl. You had your first bottom tooth and first upper one coming. You saliva flow like waterfall. You can stand up for a long time. Mama and daddy are truly sorry for the bumps and fall of the bed and walker previously. Our bad baby, our bad. And we had learn from it not to let you fall again. It made us cry seeing you in pain.

I don't know where you learn the way to wake up your daddy. Do you know how you did it? You would crawl towards his face and started scratching his nose and said.. "Ahhh.. ahhh.. ahhhhhhhh". I can't find it in Google translate, so I assume it's "WAKE UP!". I find it cute. Lucky you didn't give him a hard smack on his face. HEHE.

You would also cry and whine and so clingy to your daddy more than me. The wide smile like Joker until your eyes become smaller whenever you saw daddy. I always say this to you, 'macam nampak boyfriend!.'
Next, you are good at bullying your big brother. You pulled his hair, fight over an iPad and you love seeing him getting angry when he was asked to take care of you. You won't stay foot and even scolded him back. "Ahhh.. wehhhh.. uhhhh.." in an angry tone.

You know, he loves you so much. He even cried when you cried non stop whenever he is holding you inside the car while I was driving. You wanted to sit with me on the driver's seat bcause you hate your baby's seat. Do you want the RM2000 Recaro seat baby? If you want, I need to make sure you SIT. Or else, I'll get the 'husband talk' from your daddy. "Expensive. Not practical. Why buy? Other seat cheaper. Bla bla bla."

You really love yourself. First time looking at your own face on the mirror and you started kissing. Your handprints and saliva all over the mirror. And you would just gave me I-am-cute-don't-be-mad-at-me-mama kind of face. Or you would give me no-it-wasn't-me-i'm-not-guilty face.

Grandma Faridah said you walk like a model and she added, "Arissa suka lelaki je, mentang-mentang lah cantik." I smile. She said that because you will be extremely excited when you see grandpa and not her. HEHE. Anyway, she cannot hold you longer because you're chubby and weight 8KG last time we went for a checkup.

There's one time when daddy was playing with his PS3 and gave you his iPad to make you sit still. You looked at him and he was wondering what was wrong. He even asked you why. If only you can talk at 8 months huh? He figured out the iPad screen was locked. So he took it and opened it for you. And you started playing with it. You are such a clever girl. I know you wanted to say, "Gave me iPad but don't want me to play with it."

The cutest thing you did to me was, when I scolded you, you would say "MA" in a slow tone and soften your eyes. Yeah, you gave me those puppy eyes. Although it was not full "MAMA", but I am happy that you said mama first rather than daddy. HEHE. You babies just now how to make us melt don't you? We could die melting because of your adorableness and cuteness you know.

You are talkative and have the sweetest smile. Whenever we eat, you also want to eat. I can still remember how angry you were when daddy took away 'keropok lekor' from your hand. Oh baby, at 8 months old you already ate 'keropok'.

Now you have learned how to give us a kiss. You open your mouth wide and kiss. Sloppy kisses. All your saliva on our face. It's OK baby, we love you too.

I guess I will end my ramblings here baby. Mama got work to do. I am praying hard you and your big brother will be good children to us. Mama and daddy promise to take care both of you and love you two with all our heart. Forever and ever.

P/S: My dear children, you are precious.

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…
