TAWC - Trying for Two Weeks Meals Cycle

Cook for a day, eat for a month or a week or two. You decide.

Having ingredients on-hand is the most important thing. My mistake this week OAWC was I didn't prepare my list prior to buying my groceries. I ended up putting yogurt into my chicken curry. It tasted sour! Argh!

I put it in the freezer and I wanted to put low fat milk. I totally forgot about it when we went out last weekend, twice! During lunch, I went to Mercato and bought coconut milk. I'll put that later when I reached home.

So this week meals:
3 packs of Chicken Curry
3 packs of Spicy Red Chicken
2 packs of Black Pepper Beef
1 pack of Soy Sauce Mackerel (which is too salty)
1 pack of Spicy Yellowtail scad (we already had it on weekend)
2 packs of Spinach.

Yes, it's the same fish recipe like last week. I'm still looking for a fresh new recipe. But you know how the fish price nowadays. Really expensive. I bought two piece of mackerel at Giant for RM7, but at the morning market it's RM14! Squids, crabs and shrimp are too expensive too. Maybe once a month I will ask Mr. Fruitheart to buy. Depends on what they want to have that week.

I have cucumber, so I can switch in between the spinach. The plan is five days meal including Saturday. Wednesday we will buy from the night market. And Sunday we will have an eat out session. Now, let's go and find more frozen recipe. I would like to try out the spaghetti with meatballs, cheesy chicken with broccoli and potato.

P/S: Cooking has never been easy when you have the right ingredients, time and determination.

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…
