Hunting for Washer and Dryer

What is the next most important thing you should have in your house? That's right, washing machine. A dryer is not that important, but it will be important when it's rainy season. If you hand your clothes to dry inside the house, it will dry and leave a stinky smell on your clothes. Bau masam!

We've been looking for washing machine since before we were married. Long time planning it seems. We did save money, but oh well, it went into buying something else. So here we go again, hunting for one.

I want something like this.

Electrolux 7.0kg Washer / Dryer Combi
•7.0kg Washing Capacity
•5.0kgDrying Capacity
•1200RPM Spinning Speed
• Condenser Drying System
•Flexible Interactive Program
•Electronic & 1 Control Programmes
•Spin Speed Selection
•Active Balance Control
•Zinc Coated Cabinat
•Anti-Rat Net
•Daly Start Function
•LCD Display & Remaining Time with Time Manager Control
•70 Litres Water Consumption
•Jet Spray Washing Technology
•Product [W x H x D] (mm): 600 x 850 x 630

Same brand and capacity only different is Jet Spray Washing Technology and Magic Ball Washing Technology. Jet Spray is RM27++, while Magic Ball is RM25++. Guess which one I'll choose? Of course the cheaper one.

At first we thought of only to buy washer. As you can see, living in a condo you have limited space to hang your clothes. And when it's raining, much worse. You have to hang inside your house. On the chair, on the dining table, on the window, and even your wardrobe knob! So messy and ugly and disturbing. The problem is.. MONEY, MONEY, MONEY. It doesn't grow on trees.

P/S: I was hoping someone would give us a washer + dryer as a surprise gift. I know one place I can buy this at a slightly cheaper price and it also provide ONLINE purchasing.

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…
